Any info on it?
I can only get a blank white screen Probably caused by my "fast, reliable" Frontier DSL (give me a minute to stop laughing uncontrollably at that statement).
I don't love the paint and from reading.....at this point it's more blow than go but hey.....whatever floats your boat.*
After all I'm the guy who turned my Fifth into the luxury cop car.*
Anyone who owns the hotrod 5th should have a big block in there, or on hell of a screamer small block to go with that staggering personality!
Dannnnnng, I need to find a slightly beat up M so I can do this awesome shit to it! LOL
Like this Caravelle that still may be for sale !
I just noticed this, but its running the orange spark box on the fender. Someone has defeated the ESA/ELB. However, did they swap carbs? Or is it a poorly running stock 2bbl with no ECU input?
That thing is about a half hour from me.
A lean burn computer and an ECU box???
Something funky going on there......
Just because the computer is still on the air cleaner doesn't mean it's hooked up.
I still have one on my 86 F/A but I run MSD.
88, I wonder what's the deal with the E test running a 'non stock' ignition?
Then you'll get the three catalyst rule.
Reason I stick with 87 and older.
Do you guys have to get emissions tested? Kind of sounds like it, or am I reading something into nothing, lol!
All we have in Wisconsin is down in the southeast part of the state (Milwaukee county and surrounding counties) and even then vehicles are exempt if they're 1996 model year or older (20 years).
Ontario-1987 and newer e test for life.
88 and 89 M's are considered parts cars with my M people.
Yep. More pain than it's worth so a mint M winds up being a donor car. It's ridiculous. Part of their plan to get the good stuff off the streets so you have to buy disposable garbage.
just thought I would say that first pictue, if u look on youtube theres video on that car, its a bad ride, it sounds good.
Couldn't find it, got a link?
I'm sorry, but most of his write up cracks me up.
Yup. He's a body man so he knows how to do things right.
Add three inch shackles that now make the ass feel like it's on ice even with the most gradual of curves at low speed. Air shocks that are gonna beat the hell out of the upper mounts. And don't forget how much faster the "performance spark plug wires" and Edelbrock air cleaner with flowmasters must make that 318 2bbl.
This car says "ricer" all over it. It's the same shit as kids cutting the coils down on a Honda, installing a fart can, putting a lawn mower handle on the trunk think they're bad ass. It don't handle, sounds annoying, looks like shit, and ain't fast.
That pretty much nails it.
They sound like putz'es, and have warped ideas, but these are the kids that will save our cars, in some form for the next generation, after us old farts are dead, and gone. We did some crazed stuff with cars, at their age, but that is how you learn; and they too will learn.
Not disagreeing with you. But it's up to us, as the older generation, to guide and teach. Does this kid have potential? Sure, with the plans of a crate engine, but someone's gotta teach him how to put power to the ground and that suspension set up is an accident waiting to happen.
I hear about people putting air shocks on these cars all the time.
All you need to do is look at the upper mounts to know that this is not a good idea. For load balancing I can maybe see. But to jack the ass in the air by two ears? No.
