Re: Jay Lenos a Smart Feller

He is actually a really nice guy too..

Well, as long as you want to talk cars and don't go ask him for celebrity gossip, he is a really nice guy.. I see him up on Mulholland probably once every 3 months, and if he sees me he remembers not only me, but also details about my cars..

Radiator color matter?

One of my friends linked me this video, and it is about intercoolers.. But there is no reason it should not apply to a radiator.. If this is true, and I have to admit my mind is kinda blown just seeing this, I can't believe anyone would sell an aluminum radiator or intercooler that is not painted.. ...

Re: Awesome Bill

It's definitely him.. The ad is Bill, Chase Elliot, and Dale Jr.

I was wondering about the car.. Knew Bill would be with some kind of Ford product..

Guess I got confused.. Those lights and the side trim said Comet to me.. Thanks Fred

Awesome Bill

Am I confused? Or is Awesome Bill from Dawsonville standing in front of a '61 Comet in the new Napa ad?

Re: One of those days..

Funny Joe.. I had driven by there, thinking if they were all over town, it would be a mad house at the museum. Nope.. Just one, rolling thru..

One of those days..

There are days when I get annoyed living in Pomona, the heat, the smog, some of the neighborhoods, suffice to say, there are days when I think I should move somewhere else.. This is not one of those days.. Apparently they are having some event at the NHRA museum this weekend.. The streets around her...

Re: headed home,,,,,,

Fred, did you ever by chance put one of those tank liners in there? Because this sounds almost exactly like what happened to my Datsun.

Anyway, safe travels and the good news is if you ever need a pee stop you can just turn it off and coast to a stop near a tree and then blame it on the car..

As the crow flies, the first photo is probably 40-50 mi...

Re: Safari Sighting!

Talked to the owner tonight at the dinner.. His father in law drove an original car in the original race.. So when he decided to build a re-creation, they went from original FIA certification submissions and countless photos.. He says it is absolutely as correct as he can make it. It is an amazing c...
