    Hortens & the King

    Looks like another American firm has taken the "jump ship" approach to paying corporate taxes. By merging with Tim Hortens, Burger King dodges having to pay certain corporate taxes. May e we should all move to a foreign country to avoid paying our fair share. I think everyone would like to get...

    Factory 1993 Chrysler/Infinity 6disc changer trouble code

    I had a fuse blow in the factory 6 disc changer in my trunk. When I replaced the fuse, the trouble code "E-02" showed up on the remote LED. Once again, I'm in Va. Beach, w/o access to the troubleshooting guide for the changer. Last week, that tornado that touched down in Brunswick, Ohio was 500...

    Power: Real vs. Percieved

    I was talking with my son-in-law today about cars of the past vs. late model stuff. The difference between a '66 Dodge Coronet with a 440/727/8.75" with a 3.23 sure-grip vs. a 2010 Cobalt SS turbo 5 speed. Punch the '66 & hold on for dear life. Let the thing take you through the gears, fully...

    Can the flow control valve & circuitry be isolated from the stock EFI? I know it came with the recall retro fit kit, but I've not been able to locate one. Anyone found a setup that works with the stock computer?

    Border crossing

    After having a long talk with my father, who had been in trucking most of his life, the exchange of parts across the border is no more legal than the trafficking of drugs across the border. It would have to be set up as a legal business. All rules, regs, taxes, licenses, etc, would all need to...

    Viper alarm battery life

    Does anyone have a Viper alarm on their car? If so, how often do you need to change the AAA battery in the fob? It seems that I'm only getting a little less than a month, whether I use it or not. I know fob's with the 3032 batteries get considerably longer life. Thanks, Larry

    Has anyone mounted gauges on their "A" Pillar yet? When I asked Summit for the part #, Summit wants me to buy one of each part, then return the ones that don't work! They tried to sell me some POS universal fit that wasn't even close. Thank You, Larry

    New Years resolutions

    I hear that if you tell someone your resolution, it won't come true. I hope not. Since the invention of political correctness, I, & many others have altered the way we speak, act, & think. This has done nothing but confuse, alienate, & turn people off. The Barney Fife's of the world have taken...

    Why "Don't we get no respect?"

    All the Mopar only shows I go to are packed in like sardines; just like Chevy & Ford. It appears to be as large as any other shows. Our money's as good as Chevy & Ford money. So why are we treated like 2nd class citizens at general car shows? And F M J bodies the worst! C &D bodies get more...

    Due to my wife's For Obviously Retarded Drivers (Ford) finding yet another way to leak out its anti freeze, I was forced to press my Imp into service on a cold winter's day. Imagine my surprise to see a Diplomat coming towards me on Aurora Rd. in Solon, Oh. around 4-4:30 today. Anyone here? Yet...

    11.75" rotors & tape on wheel weights

    I installed the 11.75" brake set on my Imp & noticed that the clearance is incredibly tight. I don't know if tape on weights would clear the caliper. When I polish my snowflake wheels up, I don't want to use pound on weights, but I don't know if tape on weights will clear. And with time, if not...

    Energy Suspension drops our crossmember bushings from catalog!

    Opened my poly bushings from Energy Suspension &, wrong parts! Right number, 5.4111G, wrong parts.
