Re: Synthetic oil for 302?

While not really a factor for the classic cars, just adding that I find synthetic oil helpful in our daily drivers during winters in the frozen Northeast. It flows better in extreme cold, so when you're in ski country & its 5 below & your car's been sitting for a few days, it can still crank over. C...

Chris, with any luck at all you will have a pocket full of dough and a smile on your face. Which leads to the two words we all love to hear: I'm buying!
Good Luck!
Thanks Bill, sounds good to me! See you soon.

My car is scheduled to cross the block @ R&S on 1/19 between 6:30-7. Provided I can get out of there pretty soon afterward, my plan is to swing by Scott's and hang out w/you guys a bit.

Those tires are more than 14 years old now. I don’t think I would trust them for highway driving.

I think the tire companies did well after everyone got back home replacing rear tires that were worn down just a tad.
Heh, I still have those BFG's/repop wheels on my '67. At this rate they'll still have good tread depth when they're petrified. :)

We did have an amazing time, but then again, when have a bunch of Cougar guys got together and NOT had a good time? ;) I feel like Chuck West and the AMC crew had ne...

Is this the famous burnout car king from the AMC video shoot in Atlanta, 2005? :D You really smoked 'em! One & the same! But now she's got repro bias ply tires on restored original wheels w/NOS trim rings, center caps & lug nuts. You know me Vic, anything for good TV. :lol: Hope all is well w/you g...

Re: Boss Eliminator sighted arriving at Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale

Looks like lot 1050 has "no size" tires, while lot 801 seems to be sporting the "size" version
