capable? yes. enjoyable? no. It's actually a surprisingly spunky car that handles quite well also, but crazytown freeway isn't it's strong suit. lots of road noise at anything over 60-65, and milage really suffers. absolute best milage is actually cruising at nearer 50MPH. 60-65mph is pretty good also, but above that milage drops to ONLY 35-40MPG . guys who do hipermiling in these things do get nearly 60mpg, but they are the crazy ones imho.

Garrell.770.
My T bucket has a modified 99 Cadillac Northstar engine and T-5, so I'd guess it gets around 15-20 just cruisin around town (I've never actually checked however).

Ok guys i gotta confess. That rad ride is not my daily driver, but you got to admit it's a great pic!
The only thing of interest that I currently have is a 1970 Chevy Longhorn one ton that I,m struggling to make up my mind whether to restore again or pull the engine and sell the truck. Lots of other vehicles but nothing of any great significance.

So we have a luxo T bucket, and a propane tank salt flat racer.
I got Moderated this morning around 3:00 am, when I gave the definition of being in the Bonneville B.A.D. club I didn't put *** in. I didn't know you couldn't type ***.

Mike, I don't see why you should have to keep buying new DD's. It is obvious you know your rights. Obvious case of harassment.

Daily Driver #1

1987 S10 short bed 2.5 Iron Duke 4-speed manual .. 210K and smoking but still gets 25 mpg .. in the next year or so it will give up its life to be reborn as something better when I pull its chassis out and slide it under my '58 Mercedes Hot Rod Project

Daily Driver #2

1999 Chrysler LHS 205k 21mpg

Hands Down Best Car I Have Ever Owned .. and I only paid $65 for it .. customer brought it in with a blown head gasket, didn't want to fix it, so I bought it off him. Fixed it myself and have been riding ever since, that was 4 years and 100k ago.

does it happen to have the 3.5L motor?
me and my gf have a slightly older one with the 3.5 and at light cruise and heavy acceleration it pings very very bad.

ive tried everything going from cheap gas to mid/high grade , new plugs and wires , checked all vacum lines, no error codes/check engine light.

hell i even tried to seafoam it once, it got better but that only lasted about 3 days

Yes it has the 3.5 G-code High Output motor. If you have no vacuum leaks (have you checked your brake booster? mine leaks a little and I can hear it whistle on the pedal side inside the passenger compartment - it's on my to-do list but haven't gotten to it yet!) and your ignition is in good working order, the fact that the seafoam helped a little is a good indication you have a severe carbon problem. I would recommend taking it to a shop that carries BG products, and have them do the BG Induction Cleaning Service with the K2902 service kit. The kit comes with two cans of carbon buster, that they put in a pressure vessel and blow through your intake while the engine is running .. cleans the throttle body, back sides of the intake valves, and the combustion chambers. The kit also includes a can off 44K fuel system cleaner that gets dumped in the tank to continue the cleaning while you drive. We charge $139.95 for the service, and in my experience it is worth every penny.

thanks somone else mentioned i may have a lot of carbon buildup, but most ppl just suggest its due to the fact im 6,500ft above sea level.

maybe ill go get 2-3 cans of seafoam and try that no way i would pay 140 bucks to have that done and i doubt any shops in this tiny town do it anyways. except this time ill pull the plugs and squirt some down in each cyl and let it sit before i start the engine and add the rest of the seafoam the normal way
