    Factory Paint Codes for 35th wheels.

    I've tried searching the forums without much luck. I'm having my original 92 SC wheels refinished to replicate my 35th wheels so I can get tires that I can actually regularly drive on (my original 35th wheels still have the 30 year old original tires). I know YC is the black, but looking for...

    WTB 1995 oil dipstick

    Change the oil in my 1995 SC this weekend and learned my dipstick broke off. Looking for a replacement. It looks like this, for those that don't know.

    Starting to drive my 95 more regularly

    After sitting for much of the past 4 or 5 years, I started by driving on a local car cruise last fall. I followed that by driving it to the Midwest Bash and a local car show on New Years day. I drove it again today and finally grabbed a new picture for my garage page. My plan is to drive my...

    What I learned on The Epic Drive 2019

    I learned a few things on this year's Epic Drive. - This is Will Smith's element, he can hang with anyone on the twisties - It is possible to run the fuel pump dry with 6-7 gallons in a late-model Thunderbird gas tank. All it takes is aggressively driving a 300 degree right hand turn at speed...

    2018 Shootout Dyno competition / sign-ups

    As David mention, I will be handling the DYNO competition again this year. (As he also mentioned, I am out of town on business and will give limited replies.) I will not be running around tracking people down when it is their turn. I'm not going to try to guess timeslots, so the signup list...

    Intermittent Tach issue (stumped)

    I've had an intermittent tach issue for a few years now. I will be cruising around and then the tach will go to zero rpms--sometimes just briefly, sometimes long enough to throw a check engine light. The issue seems to occur more recently the hotter, or longer I've been driving the car. I...

    My mileage with a 3200-3500 non-locking stall on The Epic Drive

    Since I've been on a few Hot Rod Power Tours, I knew my mileage would be less that 16 mpg. I wasn't sure how much a heavy dose of mountain driving would negatively affect my mileage. Anyway, here are the results: STL to Athens (including in-town Athens driving) -- 540 miles, 14.34 mpg. Athens...

    Finally found and fixed my fuel leak.

    First I want to thank David Neibert for coming over and assisting--I couldn't have done it without him. In this past, I always assumed that the fuel leak was coming from the hat gasket--this was due to the fact that the entire stock of hat gaskets at local Ford dealer had a visible pinhole in...

    Dry run for The Epic Drive (kinda)

    Really the 2nd drive of the year, but this one was further (about 12 miles :)) Still running a bit of gas out of the car so I can attempt to find and fix my fuel tank leak that keeps me from topping off the tank.

    My new trailer

    After a 34 hour bonsai trip to Valdosta, GA, I made it back home with Chris Wise's old trailer. Thanks again for meeting me in Valdosta. The trip was fairly uneventful, except for the 2 hour traffic delay in Atlanta--you know it's bad when google maps says there is a 1hr 40+ minute delay due...

    **** Cancelled **** Not the track, just me attending

    I got too busy this afternoon and the track moved up the gate and racing times. I just can't comfortably get there and race without running around like crazy. So I have decided to wait until Spring to race again. Although I'm not a fan of the Midnight Madness program because of how crowded...

    Finally back in the 11's

    Went to the track back on Wednesday night to take advantage of the great racing weather (temps in the 60's and dry) and hopes to get back into the 11's after not being there for a while. 1st pass: R/T --- .110 60' ---- 1.638 11.623 @ 115.98 Checked the data log and the methanol wasn't...

    We made it home from the 2014 Shootout

    We fought a nasty side-wind the whole way home and then hit some very sketchy weather about 60 miles out of St Louis. We even saw what looked like the start of a funnel cloud that Chris's fancy radar app confirmed rotation. I don't think a tornado actually formed. Anyway, the car is in the...

    SCI 5% JS Pulley delivered to the Shootout

    In my haste to change pulley combos before getting tuned earlier this year, I purchase a used 5% JS pulley only to find the one I already owned :rolleyes: Anyway, I'm looking to sell my extra 5% JS pulley made by SCI. Currently, I'm only offering this for sale at the Shootout. I paid $105 and...

    Additional 2014 dyno information

    When Wzenheimer and I dyno'd our cars this year, Kurt Sunday held a boost gauge in the bottom corner of the frame of my GoPro while I recorded. I thought it was pretty cool, so I built a rig with a 2.5" 30 psi boost gauge I had laying around. I'm not sure exactly how to mount this to the...
