  1. V Owners...what SUV is the one to buy?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    If its still under warranty, buy a gas powered Benz GL, since you have a lead foot. The 450, 550, and GL 63 AMG all share a similar twin turbo v8 that will move you with the utmost authority. I have a bit of extensive seat time behind the GL450, even with the least powerful version of that...
  2. Bond Girls! Gotta a favorite?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Gotta go with Xena Onatopp. First exposure to the world of James Bond was Goldeneye through the N64 game. Endless hours spent in four person death match mode, watched the movie soon after playing the game and have been hooked on James Bond ever since.
  3. What did you do to your car today?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    For a bit of metal track, plastic, and wire it seems very pricey, that doesn't include the motor. I guess its all perspective though, I was used to the parts prices on my old Cadillacs being the same as a Chevy truck, cause under the skin they weren't that much different.
  4. Diabolical products

    Yeah the Amazon warehouse is literally 10 miles from where I live, so stuff is usually here within 2 business days, I've had some things show up the next day when I ordered in the morning lol. Free overnight shipping baby:)

    . Were they a bitch to get out? That would be my main worry about leaving them in there that long, strip the threads.
  6. Not popular with the top 2% of Americans, but.....!

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Main reason its older Japanese and domestic pickups is that they made a ton of them. Add to the fact that they are well built and have held up, there are still a lot of them on the road 10, 15, 20 years later. Thus the demand for spare parts is huge. Something like a 1997 Ford Taurus, nobody...

    ^ What would be wrong with spec'ing a 9 volt smoke detector battery for something like that?
  8. Chevy Avalanche thinking of buying one

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Oh and since you like to hunt deer with your car instead of a shotgun, they make a wide variety of bumpers to suit your needs for that truck. The question is do you wait to hit a deer and then have insurance pay for your new fancy bambi killer, or do you just bite the bullet and pay for it...
  9. Recentlly,what is the longest trip[miles]you've taken on a[pre 2004]Northstar?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Or you can just go buy an old Lexus like I did in 2011. 1992 SC300, manual shift, 60k miles. It now has 90k miles. In that time I have recharged the ac for $300 and replaced the clutch hydraulics for $300, and I spent $1700 on a new set of 18" wheels and tires, those were Pirelli tires and...
  10. 1991 Brougham D Elegance with Air Conditioner that will not turn off

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Nice, I had a couple of non-working buttons on my 1991 when I sold it, luckily it was the high fan and low fan buttons, thus you could just adjust the temp and it would do its thing and keep me comfy.
  11. Got myself a Deville. Have few questions.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Also I'd imagine Alf would smell like wet dog combined and unwashed balls. Don't know why they thought anybody would buy an Alf air freshner.
  12. Got myself a Deville. Have few questions.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Digging those turbine wheel covers. So much cooler than the ubiquitius spoke hubcaps that were so popular back in the day. Also gets some better shots of the interior, I want to see that busy upholstery in all its glory.
  13. What's in your glass tonight? Ice or no ice?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Its funny how one's tastes change over the years. Back in my college years I was all about the mixed drinks with Vodka or Rum, couldn't tell you how many Long Islands I drank back in the day. My favorite though was Jager, vodka, or white rum with Sun Drop. Now days I'm all about the...
  14. First Cadillac! Hello from TN

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Welcome from a fellow Nashvillian.
  15. Has anyone seen something like this in person - Cadillac El Camino?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Yeah its a flower car. I thought they quit making them about 20-30 years ago, as nobody really does a big extravogant funeral anymore, like in the Godfather.
  16. Is it time for a new "Name that Car" game?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Not a Fiero. The engine sat transversley and ahead of the rear axle in those. This V8 swap is mounted in the same location as the factory Peugot engine.

    ^1975 Hurst Olds or Cutlass Supreme. Just guessing from the t-tops and steering wheel design.
  19. Political Correctness...

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    There's a HUGE difference between being politically incorrect and being a racist like Trump though. Personally I think the guy is a giant narcissist, but I will give him some credit for pointing out that his campaign is not bankrolled by about 10-20 billionaires and their special interest...
  20. Are "classic" cars a good hedge against inflation?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Heck the Impala never dropped in value, at least clean, 100% original, less than 50k mile type of cars. You can get a Fleetwood, wagon or Roadmaster sedan in similar shape for 1/2 to 1/4 of the price. People are even asking 6-10k for junky Impalas with over 100k miles on them. As for the...
