Steve, if you have ever driven one of those Cobra's, you would know you don't need nitrous! Rail!

Is everyone Facebook friends or we all keeping that a secret I only asked about it because I belong to a vintage rv page and it often reminds me of Bap's work and I wonder if it's his work that I'm seeing.

I was on FB. Cancelled my account and immediately saw a HUGE reduction in the amount of junk email.

I'm not on FB probably never will be.

Rail, I think I remember adding links by putting them on as an edit after I've already posted.

Steve

I awoke to a cloudy overcast morning. Thankfully, they’re not predicting rain. I checked about the Smart car engine, it turned out it hadn’t arrived yet. Hopefully, the engine will arrive today since it’s supposed to be partly cloudy, cool with no rain both today and tomorrow. It’s perfect weather for outdoor auto repair.

I’m finishing my second cup of coffee, it sure is good. I use a 1970’s vintage Mr. Coffee. What makes it special is that the water heater for the brewer is on top, built into the water tank. Such a setup helps assure that the hot water going through the grounds is at the proper extraction temperature. It has a separate heater at the base that keeps the pot warm. I usually turn off the second heater and reheat my brewed coffee in the microwave. It’s tough being a coffee snob but the results are delicious!

A friend introduced me to the old car show circuit last year around Niagara Falls NY. I love the old car styling but not the constant maintenance needed to keep those old beasts running. Not to mention that most vintage American cars were built during a time period when the Detroit auto manufacturers had the American public conned into believing that cars only lasting 100,000 miles was normal and natural. We should all thank the Japanese manufacturers for destroying that insidious myth! As a result, if I could afford it, my old-age crazy car would be a Cobra mid-1960’s replica, with the classic AC Cobra styling teamed up with modern propulsion and suspension (and perhaps a nitrous system, go baby go!).


Here’s a photo of my dream car that I found on the internet. I want it!


Steve
I'm old enough to remember seeing a real deal 427 Cobra roar through a corner in Pomona California, 1969. That was about the time a bud told me about a 260 Cobra for sale for $2,800.00, good condition. But I was buried in my 68 TR4a IRS.

In the mid seventies I figured out that the wife's 72 Dodge Dart with its six cylinder automatic and thirteen inch skinny tires was the ultimate crooked road racer. I could get the way-over-my-head-rearend-coming-round-just-before-the-roll-over thrill at 35 mph instead of at 70 mph in a performance car.

If you like cars that go fast, are cool, and make your heart race go to a web site called "bring a trailer". They send out a email every morning and it will inspire you to buy a lottery ticket every day.

I used to love mechanicing. Then about twenty years ago I took off the end of my right thumb with a fluting blade on the table saw, took all the fun out of starting nuts and bolts. I still do what I can for fiscal and feel good reasons.
