idrivejunk Suicide knob in Ozark speak! That's a cool video tool. Needs more peeling out and banging gears noises but split windshields are cool.

What are the red and yellow buttons for?

Here in Calif we use to call your steering wheel accessory a Brodie Knob. What do you call it?

In the northern lower peninsula of Michigan that steering wheel accessory was known as a "necker's knob".

CrashFarmer2 Here is what I've been working on the past few days. I was looking into making green screen videos for a couple of ideas that have been floating around in my head so I was looking around at some sites that had those available but I didn't find anything that I liked so I thought I'd try my hand at making my own. This is my first effort. Tell me your thoughts on how to improve upon this.

I had found a green screen of a rendering of a modern car that was static which gave me the Idea to use the picture that I started with. I've attached the picture that I started with. Maybe I should make the steering wheel move?

tech69 uniforms came in today. It's one thing to get a jump in pay and be happy about it, but with that comes higher expectations. I've been there before and got laid off cause I simply wasn't ready. This time I'm ready and I'm starting to sense others see it too. Painter told me today the old body guy just used to sit around a lot and after the first few days of me being there he says I lit a fire under his arse. Not a testament of anything I'm doing, but what he's not doing. I just see in him what I don't have so I'm respectful of him and hope he can show me a thing or two.

idrivejunk It gets even better. I stopped for gas awhile ago and about ten motorcyclist couples (crotch rockets) were near the door when I went in to pay. The front one says "Sir, what kind of car is that?"

Grand Prix. A '69.

Went in, paid. Came out and he was turned toward a bike at the rear telling them "He said Grand Prix.". As I gassed up, the one at the rear slips over by me and asks if its a Grand Torino. Grand Prix, I says.

Oh, well one of them guys said that it was a...

His friend rides by and hollers "That thing turn into a Gran Torino yet?"

I kept a straight face and leaned away from the script on the trunk and pointed at it. He looked peeved. Ha.

Its a Grand Prix. Pontiac. '69. His GF was smiling, he was not. I got a good enjoy off that. Its a mystery machine, bwahaha!

idrivejunk Brian that was cool how you turned some spare parts into fresh gauges.

I worked toward old Ford beautification, see thread.

Drove the purple one today. Bike rally in town and it always brings out the old cars too so why not me. About to go back out now and drown out a few Harleys and drunks heading to hotels. Dash cam required. Car show tomorrow but it was too crowded for me last year, at least parking was. Maybe I'll hoof it and get pics.

Last night it had started so I took shiny through town once halfway. A hipster on a silent motorcycle just about ate the car in front of him to get alongside and say "Sweet car!". Thanks, I says. "I really like the vintages." he says.

Vintages? Alright then, I thought. BWAAAAAchurpAAAAAAAA was my response to that, lol.

They were super good with communications, A+ in my opinion.

They really do look good. Surely they work well.

there are only 2 bolts in the carbs for mock up of the throttle linkage.. i need to scrounge some throttle plate screws. the new throttle shafts for the dual quad setup i thought had them.. yet.. by the time i got them they were missing.. hmm.

the eastwood carb spray did not come out bad on cheap carbs..

thought you guys might enjoy some of the little projects i work on once in a while. rather than the walls of text i put up.

That looks nice, Wayne

SC4ME Today I flushed out the power steering pump and rack getting ready for the hydro boost arriving tomorrow!?!

I also installed a power steering fluid cooler. Now just have to get hydro boost and install it (with attached MC) and then flush brake system and fill. Then drive!!!!
