    Those taillights on the Sulan look quite a bit like Opel Omega/Vauxhall Carlton ones...

    While roaming the Swedish countryside, suddenly a very rare sight appeared. A 1966 Dodge Charger left out in the snow and ice.

    What's Your Personal Top Speed?

    230-ish km/h in my 605 SV24 many years ago. There was still some grunt left in the engine but the trim around the windshield blew off so it was time to brake.

    Picked up most of the interior parts from a rusted out King Cab/Hardbody today. All the plastic parts are so brittle though. It's like handling an old Ming vase.

    7 years ago, I bought a cheap 50cc scooter for ?70. Drove it now and then, then put it in a shed and forgot about it. Today I sold it... for ?70. It might be one of the few deals that didn't cost me any money.

    On the surface, everything seems calm. However... The engine is done for. When it gets warm it loses compression and the blow-by gets... really interesting. It lasted 276.389 km with a VERY spotty service record but now it's on it's last legs. And looking to the age and condition of the car...

    So. The misfire. It's located to cylinder no 3. Plug was 75% covered in black soot, even though the plug and plugwire are new i'm replacing them just to rule out that. A compression test cold shows 11,9:1 on that cylinder, gonna make another one when the engine is hot as soon as parts arrive.

    So... Hivemind, help me out a bit here. My Nissan Terrano/Pathfinder does not want to run right. It's got a misfire that's coming and going at idle when it's warm and there is a lot of misfires over 4500 rpm. Replaced spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, fuel filter, all vacuum...

    Terrorists strike yet again

    In that case my neighbour and a few guys at work are terrorists because they were the one posting them. Right now people are trying to get as many points for their own personal agenda as possible from this and it makes me sick to think of. No respect for the dead or hurt and their families. Let...
