    Ownership Verified: The Electric Banana - 2012 Jeep Patriot

    This past weekend Mrs. CraigB and I took a train ride from KC to Chicago on Easter. The following morning, we got up early, boarded another train and headed to an western suburb of Chi-town. There was a small hiccup at this point, a pedestrian was struck and killed by another train just as we...

    Ownership Verified: CraigB's Datus... Nissa... Infiniti M30

    I know I have a reputation for Mustangs around here, and I guess it may deserved, but how many have I had that have actually run? :lol: For the last few years I have been drooling over the low mileage 25 year imports that keep popping up on Craigslist or Facebook. The problem with them is...

    Learning Logic Circuits

    I've been tasked with building a simple device that would be called a win picker. Basically it's two switches, the first of which is tripped lights an LED bulb in it's lane. The second switch needs to not light the bulb in it's own lane. Picking the first switch tripped as the winner. The...

    Ownership Verified: CraigB's Merkur XR4Ti - Take 2

    As some you have no doubt seen, I have bought another Merkur XR4Ti. The first time around I bought a engine-less car and put it together myself. This time I lucked into one a friend was selling that is already road worthy. Well, as much a 30 year old oddball German Ford can be... It's not...

    The strangest thing you have seen...

    I saw a similar thread on Qurora and thought it would be fun to read some of FG Member's stories about the strangest thing they have seen in their life. I'll start out with mine: On a trip to Utah in 2006 we had stopped somewhere in Colorado off of I-70 for diesel (I had a Ford F250 at the...

    St Louis Auto Museum and Sales - 11/26/2016

    Meet up with 93Flareside today in St Louis at the St Louis Car Museum and Sales. Interesting place, seems that they have some cars for sale, some are stored for customers and then there's just some fun petrobilia. The lady behind the front counter was super friendly and very knowledgeable.

    2016 H.A.M.B. Drags @ Mo-Kan Dragway

    The H.A.M.B. Drags made it's 14th annual appearance at Smokin' Mo-Kan Dragway on August 20, 2016. This is a fairly unique race that started with just a few forum members of the Jalopy Journal's H.A.M.B. (Hokey Ass Message Board) congregated for a fun time at a race track. It has grown to have as...

    CraigB's Drag Racing Photos

    I have been taking photos at dragstrips around the midwest for at least 20 years. Recently my sister-in-law and I have been taking photos here at Mo-Kan Dragway, printing 8x10 prints on site and selling them. I thought you guys might get a kick out of seeing some of the cars I'm around every...

    As some of you saw in the Automotive Random Thoughts thread, I have traded the Focus for a Crown Vic. A friend of mine has wanted the Focus for quite sometime and I have always wanted a Crown Vic, so why not? First we shall dispense with the formalities, here's the proof photo: Unit 9 has...

    Ownership Verified: CraigB's 2014 Nissan Frontier (Navara) Pro-4X

    As many of you may know for the last couple months I have had an irrational idea to buy a truck/SUV. I've swung back and forth on different ideas, new or used, Toyota, Ford, Nissan. It became almost an obsession. Nightly I would scour Craigslist, Autotrader,, etc. Each night I would...

    Ownership Verified: CraigB's 1988 Ford Super Duty - 10 lugs of leaf spring big block fury!

    As some of you may have seen in the Automotive Random Thoughts thread, my father had acquired a 1988 Ford Super Duty box truck to use the box for storage at the racetrack. He said he'd give me the truck if I could get it running (which I did). On to the photos! The truck use to...

    Ownership Verified: CraigB's rear engined, air cooled... Kubota?

    I have been a homeowner for over 10 years and in that time I always just borrowed the racetrack's mower to keep my lawn mowed. Unfortunately, the track's mower has finally given up the ghost and the replacement that was purchased is too big to fit into my back yard. It also is large enough that...
