  1. Pictures from my dad's wrecking yard in Beaumont, TX. from around 1960. He would pick me up from school in 1st grade and take me back to the shop with him until he closed around 5:30.
  2. The new buzz phrase I am hearing is "options by subscription." As long as you maintain your subscription payments, your optional equipment will continue to function. When you drop the subscription, they remotely disable the function. This allows the manufacturer to maintain an income stream from the vehicle. Think of OnStar for your power seats. Your cool driver memory function will require an annual payment to work. So far as the issue the OP brought up, the only parts that are federally mandated to be available are emissions related items. Some emissions parts are required to function for 100k miles
  3. I love this show. My wife and I have watched the entire series twice through. I've been watching the animated version and most episodes are pretty good, too. There is also a full length movie with all of the same actors. So far as the cars go, the only two others I can think of are Wanda's blue econo box (not sure what it is but it's pretty prominent in the episode where Hank's truck is sold in the police auction) and Lacy's car that's always in the Ruby parking lot. Edit: there is an episode in the animated version where Brent and Hank buy an old car to build a hot rod. It's a generic looking 20s or early 30s, sort of Model A looking coupe
  4. It makes me think of a cooler looking version of an MG Midget. Well done!
  5. This popped up in my FB feed today. I thought it fit with the cool work you are doing in this thread. I don't have any info, just the picture.
  6. When my florescent drop light died while working on my truck, I needed a quick replacement to get through the job. I had an old drop light that used incandescent bulbs so I grabbed it and screwed in a 100 watt LED. It worked so well that it is now my go-to work light. Lots of light, no heat, and a tough skin. Drops don't seem to bother it, either.

  8. 1970 F100, 351W, C6 and lots of other little upgrades.
  9. Most 1:1 guys say to leave at least the full diameter of the holes between them for strength. Some guys go to smaller holes as they get past the spring perches.
  10. Da Grump could have been running a big block and automatic when match racing. That was all "run-what-ya-brung!"
  11. Some of the local PDs used Chief's cars set up like that for both police and fire departments. More "personal luxury" than pursuit.
  12. I ran across this on my feed today and wanted to share it. 15 pictures of Ford concept cars that were either Mustangs or other sporty cars that never made production. Some I have seen before but others were new to me. https://www.motorious.com/slideshow/features/301916/long-lost-ford-mustang-concept I think this one is my favorite:
