    Ownership Verified: Cursed 92 Camaro is back...

    Yeah it was a bad choice of words. I was speaking from a point of view perspective, not a car-centric perspective. Definitely a bad choice of words... They sell bump steer kits for these cars, the only problem is it's impossible to fit them with wide front wheels. With 18's it's really tight...

    Ownership Verified: Cursed 92 Camaro is back...

    So I was very uncompetitive at the last autocross despite going to bigger tires. The time has now come for me to stop throwing shiny parts on it and start doing actual suspension setup to get the thing sorted. What happens is the car responds very well to steering inputs, but the rear of the...

    Theres a bar called the panhard bar that swings through an arc and locates the axle fore and aft on the car. Due to hte way its designed, if the car is lowered it will make it stick out too far to one side. Or he might have had a rear axle from a newer car that makes them stick our farther. 2...

    Yeah I expected that, so I only did one wheel to see how it looked. And I did have to put another coat on it but I was surprised at how well it blended. I've got these on the car... Im a little annoyed with how I was unable to get the axle centered. A bunch of junk inside my panhard bar fell...

    Fastest 4 seater in 1975 America?

    Im guessing you mean fastest NEW car that was sold as a 1975 model? I would presume it would have be a Porsche or Jaguar. Was Ford still selling Detomaso Panteras in 1975?

    McLaren 650S

    I agree... modern cars just look kind of crazy. Honestly I think the 650S is one of the better looking cars compared to a lot of these other modern supercars... but that's not really saying much. The Mclaren F1 is timelessly beautiful, just like the F40. Simple, clean, aggressive. These cars...

    Sinkhole Collapses Part of Corvette Museum in Ky.

    I really hate to bag on the C4's... they really were the renaissance of American performance cars after the nadir of the 70's, and they were faster than most of the muscle cars of the 60's. But you cant help but find the humor in it... if you had to have a sinkhole to open up in a museum of...

    Ownership Verified: American Muscle - My 2013 Ford Mustang GT Premium

    These cars just make a lot more sense out here. Bigger, wider roads, cheaper gas, not as many mountain passes... Lots of drag strips... You have been to the drag strip with it, right?

    Ownership Verified: '92 Mazda RX7 (FD - Import), '88 Toyota MR2 (MK1B)

    The scenery over the is amazing. What does the sticker on the windshield say? Good luck with the FD. Easy to justify it to the other half when you explain how much more the FD is worth to a potential buyer running than not running.... unless the market is different over there. Again, "easy" is...

    Some minor improvements... Trying to get the thing looking more... as my friend says... "OEM+" This is my plan for the wheels... Yes, this is plastidip too. They should be on the car in a couple of months.

    Any other fans of the the 80s angulat look?

    Some of these I love, some of these I hate. I have a Camaro, and it's definitely in this category, but I think it's one of the best looking American cars of the 80's. But I think the Japanese 80's cars looked much better on occasion. Some of the RX-7's, Celica Supras, AE86's, etc, all looked...

    Ownership Verified: '92 Mazda RX7 (FD - Import), '88 Toyota MR2 (MK1B)

    This is one of the most beautiful cars ever made. Im jealous. A local guy inherited some money and blew most of it on an LSx RX7 FD and totally ruined the car with some silly wide body kit. I mean done right they're not awful, but the cars just dont need it. They look better stock so what's the...

    Funny you mention that.... $700 worth of tires and $150 worth of adapters away from beng on the car. 17x9.5 and 17x11 set. Will be interesting making them fit, but it's been done many times with nothing more than a BFH so Im not concerned. The main problem 315/35/17s dont have a great...

    Quick update.... since it's been a while. The car lives. Had a rough week. A really close friend/coworker got laid off today, a former coworker was killed in a car accident Tuesday. Bombed my differential equations exam yesterday... So, basically Im just sharing these for the hell of it to...

    Ownership Verified: Cursed 92 Camaro is back...

    Its that time of year where the government pays me back for hte interest-free loan I give them throughout the year. After savings and responsibilities I should have around 500-750 or so bucks to do something to the Camaro. Im not really sure what I want to do with it, though. Most of the things...

    These cars are so wonderful to look at. There's a local kid cobbling one up to put some silly body kit on it and it makes me a bit ill inside.

    I love the interior! Not exactly modern, but they were designing it based on learjet cockpits of the era. Thats why theres the long overhanging glare shield and torx screws everywhere and "Escape hatch" style door handles. Quality is another thing, durability after 30 years is also another...

    Ownership Verified: Troy's Canyonero

    I dont blame you, just be aware that 350 aint your grandpappy's 350. Those cylinder heads were developed from the LT1 program, and had more development time than the LT1 stuff got. They are quite a bit different than old 60s camelhumps and are far, far superior in nearly every way. That 350 has...

    As hilarious as that comment is ... :lol: I want to point out that the Z28's and IROC-Z(28)'s got the eyeliner from the factory. Not something I just made up. ;) Heres a bunch in the plant parking lot before they got shipped to dealers: And this is from 1986 before the Ohio (Norwood) plant...
