The wife brought a patio table, chairs and umbrella. It couldn't fit in her Subaru. Greenbrier to the rescue!

I'm using my Monza and Greenbrier to hold some of my snow.

Moving my daughter to college, two weeks ago....Yes that's all her stuff!, I could have fit a lot more if I took out the seats.

Both mine get driven on a regular basis. Hauling parts in the GB, Pizza run in the Monza.

I used firmer shocks in the rear than the front and cut the front springs. That helped a lot. It's a F/C you're sitting on the front wheels, it's kinda the nature of the beast.

I can't see how they did the air filters for the 140. You see some flex tubes going to the back, but then what?

Some motorcycles are air and water cooled. What they do there is there's a coolant path around an above the exhaust valves. The jugs have your standard fins. A down and dirty method would be to coil copper tubing around the exhaust ports. I'll bet the bulk of the heat is located there.

Put it up on a lift and run it in gear. Differential trouble, sounds like only one wheel is driving.

I wonder where they got the 12K number from. I think the seller will be in for a rude surprise.

Ed made the show. Like others have said these shows can start out good and veer off into endless bullcrap that nobody really cares about. Fast and Loud went down that path and Aaron left. The thing that Ed and Aaron have in common is that the work and the results are what matters most. Sadly this does not fit into our profits before people world we now live in.

I have their 1000lb, rolling lift table. It works great, for engine removal, and install. I also used it as a table for a rebuild. It also comes in handy for lifting and moving other heavy loads.

You could order a corvan with windows all around. Basically it would be a greenbrier, but without roll down windows in the rear.

Like other's have said northeast winters are rough on cars. I don't use my Corvairs in the winter in upstate N.Y. They would handle the snow fine, but the salt eats cars. I would get a snow bunny to use in the winter. Fighting rust is a constant battle, when doing work on my "newer" cars I use spray rust reformer and hit any surface rust I see while I'm under the car.

Gunk in the pan with only 25K? That seems odd to me, because of that, I would lean towards clogged PCV system.

I have noticed that in Europe they prefer a clean look. Personally, I prefer a cleaner look on most cars too. I don't mind the colors either, I'm not a fan of the "Same Old, Same old" looks most restored cars have. Unless your shooting for 100% accurate restoration, I say whatever makes you happy. I never pay attention to the prices of things brought and sold on any "real

I never cared for the vacuum bleeder either, for the same reasons Craig said. I can tell myself the bubbles I see are from the treads, but I never feel 100% O.K. with it. On older non-abs cars two man pumping works fine, but on some newer abs cars, it's hard to get all the air out past the ABS unit manually. On all cars pressure bleeding is just easier. You can make a homemade pressure bleed

I towed my convertible backwards on a dolly too. It was about 60 miles, but I brought a tarp with me to cover the top, because I heard that people sometimes had problems.

I have a bladder type pressure bleeder and the the adaptor for older GM dual MC's. It was a bit of a pain, to get the adaptor on without leaking, because of the clearance. But once it's on, all you have to do is to turn on the air pressure and open the bleeders at each wheel. I got it to bleed my modern ABS cars, and now I can never go back to the manual bleeding method ever again.

I have a one good headlight surround, and Two tail light housings with and O.K. lenes. The tail lights are both rights. How about 20 bucks plus the ride? PM me if you need them.

I had a 40gal compressor, and tee'd in my pancake compressor to give me more volume. It worked O.K.. but both still cycled on a lot. It wasn't great, and it was noisy. I found a almost free 80 gal tank and I brought a two cly head unit, from Horror fright. I used a 4.5HP 220V motor I already had on it. It was tricky getting all the parts mounted and working well, but It was cheap altern

I would be pissed if I spent a lot of money on a truck that turned out to be junk. I have a 1999 Tahoe 4wd. I paid 1500. and spent 800 on parts to get it 100% Zero rust, it was garaged it's whole life. I drive it hard, and it gets 18mpg highway with AC on the whether it's loaded or empty. After seeing the video and hearing people's stories, I'll keep my Tahoe.

Non Corvair, most recent road adventure. A friends wife called me from the highway broken down about 20 miles from me. I threw some tools in the car and went to help. She broke the rear driveshaft on their 1998 Honda CRV, it's a one piece unit that doesn't have u-bolts. I muscled it out and drove it back to my house on just the front wheels. I order a new shaft for them, and drove her t

It had to happen eventually. They say it's the first major accident in 130 million miles. Whether we like it or not, we will have more and more self driving cars on the road. I predict there will be a day when you will only be able to use the express lane if you have autopilot. I don't want or need it, but most younger people see cars as just a way to get from A to B, a pod that comes t

Once you go electric, you never go back. Even after months of sitting over the winter both cars started right up.
