This is my favorite ballet…

It’s beautiful, innit?

Some tool definitions

What these tools really do: (Mike, Gordon and Fixer, please share your additions or observations!) Tool Definitions: Drill PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your soda across the room, splattering it against that freshly-stained […]

Dart update!

The life of a weekend warrior- I dragged Mike the Mechanic into another long day working on the Dart…. My ’72 Dart had massive carbon buildup in the crossover passages of the intake manifold. This kept the exhaust gas from heating up the intake manifold and the choke so #1- the thing never hit peak […]

Hey, Fixer….

Oh, man. You have to check this out: On June 15, 1957, a new gold and white 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Sport Coupe was buried in a time capsule in downtown Tulsa, OK. The time capsule was part of Golden Jubilee Week: Tulsa‘s celebration of Oklahoma‘s semi-centennial. The car is buried under the sidewalk in front […]

If you need me this weekend…

I’ll be under the hood of the Dart.

If you run, you’re just gonna go to jail embarrassed

Dodge Charger police package… I guess almost everyone goes straight in their late 30s, even the Charger. I’d love to see a quarter mile with the old hemi and this new beast side-by-side. Someone has to have done that by now….

I spy with my little eye….

Something that starts with “HELL, YEAH….” I live in a sleepy little town. There’s less than 240 of us, I think was the last count. SO, there’s a little house right next to the post office, and I don’t know if I have mentioned it before, but there’s a ’71 Dart Swinger that someone really […]

Wave of deaths blamed on eBay

I got this email today: “Your Chilton’s Manual was shipped Monday sorry I haven’t replied as I had a death in the family. Thanks! -Slowpoke” It’s been three weeks since I won that auction. No email, no phone call, nothing. I wonder of everyone who used “I had a death in the family” as an […]
