Re: Track Report

Hep Pop, you have a Rhino too. Next time you need tires, check out the Kenda Bear Claw K587's. I couldn't believe the bite in the sand and mud. I could go places in 2WD where I needed 4WD with the old 589's.

I wondered what happened to him. I'm glad to see he's still thrashing on it.

Shocks

FYI Rock auto has a $25 rebate on four KYB shocks. Net $71 including shipping for me. The rebate comes from KYB, it's not instant.

PS, this on a buggy build (VW shocks).

I say find a better core, then give the arm and leg to just Dashes. Cool car.

Re: New Terminology

I came upon this social distancing tool earlier. It was a stick with a ball on top that had the numbers 1-5 with an R too. I found out the higher the number, the more the distance. 8)

Re: some blues in my buddies yard

Cool video; I wouldn't call that blues though. And I think the harp players Mic is custom made by Greg Heumann, he made me one and I love it.

Re: 1965 comet vintage air or classic air?

Mike, I don't think the 64's ever had anything but knee knockers. The new unit that I installed in the firewall used the factory heater controls in my 66. I just had to add factory blower switch to trip the compressor. That and I found factory in-dash registers for AC. You would have to use new unde...

Re: 1965 comet vintage air or classic air?

I've used both, they work great. I just use the knee knocker style in the Falcon and retain the factory heater. You could do the same. There are some other suppliers out there too. The stuff is pretty generic when you're hanging it under the dash. A whole system with deflectors either in or under th...

65 Cyclone coming up for sale

Well, well, I looked at this car about 5 years ago. At that time the old man wasn't selling anything. This place is like something you'd see on TV. A lifetime collection of cars, signs and everything else. The two buildings are probably at least 50 x 100 each. I heard he had passed last year. I went...
