And that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. My stock box was cracked from over tightening, so after looking at all kind of websites, eBay, anywhere I could think of, I finally ordered a new one from Zip. It should be here tomorrow.
Thanks Matt.

Happy Anniversary!!!
Still working for me although there's really not much to do. The tint side is floating my paycheck right now. I'm fortunate to be able to come to work. I have an office suite to myself so not really much public over here. Just me most of the time.
Have been lately binge watching "The Grand Tour" on (i think) Netflix. If you havent' seen it, watch it. Nice car info and cars and those guys are hilarious. And, due to them and their antics I think I want a Range Rover or a Bently . This may change stay tuned.
Hope everyone has a great day and is staying safe

Hello, Gris.

I'll report in that we had a quiet but lovely 25th wedding anniversary celebration yesterday, with two relatively long walks and one excellent takeout steak dinner.

We also watched a silly movie (The Lego Batman Movie) and a more serious one (Ford v Ferrari). Both of us really enjoyed Ford v Ferrari, though it wasn't always precisely accurate, and Hollywood still insists on making the act of going faster than the other racecars simpler than it is. We own the non-fiction book that inspired the movie (Go Like Hell), so it was easy to pick out the differences. You can, of course, merely watch the movie for the gorgeous cars, which permeate the film.

Took about 2 hours to do the video. He will do the editing. I'm pleased with the rough video, and awaiting the final product.

With it reaching 83 this afternoon, I thought it was a good time to change oil in the pickup, so, got that done before supper.

Tomorrow is supposed to be one more day similar to today...maybe a few degrees cooler.

It sounds like all is relatively well with you guys. Another Ho-hum day here.
Got word SIL in DC passed out yesterday at home. Is now hospitalized and still out. She’s in ICU and they believe it to be a heart attack.
She’s had some other health issues in the past few years. She really is a nice gal, but sadly I’m not sure about the outcome on this.
Like all my in-laws, I’m hoping for the best.

My 80's cars included an 83 Cavalier 2 tone brown exterior, dark brown fabric interior and loaded with options, a 1985 Chevrolet S-10 extended cab. A 1985 Dodge high top conversion van, a 1987 Olds 88 and a 1987 Ford Thunderbird. All of them were actually enjoyable vehicles. Some things they did better than others. None of them had much in the way of performance.

Thanks for the kind words. You are right that I try to write about more than the obvious eighties cars, though I really should treat some of those (Countach, DeLorean, GNX, 959) soon. Of the cars you listed, the nearest I get is the 1986 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 coupe and the 1983 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe (I don't think the S-10 Blazer or the Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight are close enough).

A common thread among the husbands here in the long term relationships seems to be "Keep busy outside the house." There may well be something to that.

All is well. Just dealing with routine stuff that needs attention. There seems to always be something that needs fixin. I'll get back to working on the patio shortly. Our golf cart mechanic stopped by to work on two of the carts today. One has to go to the shop. The other needs further testing with a diagnostic reader. It's good that I tackled the patio now. It will make other tasks seem easier when I start them later. A job that builds my stamina helps me on the next ones.

Morning guys... seasonably warm this morning and headed to low 80s again today.

I'm going to do a video today for the high school shop classes on how to build cabinet doors. My replacement is coming over to do the video. Then I will work on the bedside tables some more.

Good morning, all.

Another chilly but otherwise nice morning in the Philadelphia area.

Thanks for all the well wishes—a quarter of a century seems like a big deal.

I believe we've adjusted to our change of plans. On the agenda: a couple of walks, a couple of movies (likely including Ford versus Ferrari), and take-out from a steakhouse.

OVERCAST AND COOL THIS MORNING IN THE NATIONS, SUPPOSED TO WARM UP TO 80'S, SAY THE WEATHER BOFFINS. MAYBE THAT WILL SLOW DOWN THE KUNG FLY BUGS.

NOTHING ON THE AGENDA TODAY, ROTATED CARS YESTERDAY AND RENEWED THE TAG ON HARVEY. I'M ALL GASSED UP AND NOWHERE TO GO. SOME THE HOME HEALTH TYPES THAT WERE SUPPOSED TO SHOW UP POSTPONED TO TODAY, STAPLES SUPPOSED TO COME OUT.

Looks great, tee. Congrats to you both, John, on your silver anniversary. Marcus, the tunes will come in due time. GRIS, Healing meditative thoughts coming your way for Mrs GRIS.

I got off my ass today and am deep cleaning the patio. I got almost halfway done. Probably another day and a half left. I'm washing the underside of the roof. It's painted beams and tongue and groove decking. It's been 9 years since it was painted and needed some TLC. Everything is dusty so I'm taking everything out of the way. Then I'll clean it all before I put it back. I'll take pics when I'm done.

Hey guys....slept in some this morning. Clear and comfortably cool this morning, but has warmed up. 80 now and looking for 85.

Got around pretty quick and went up to the lumberyard, to get some wood screws and shims to hang the doors at church hall. Got those installed by noon. Back home now, tools unloaded and lunch eaten.

Finished up the bedside tables yesterday.

Took them up and in the bedroom.

Rosie liked them so much she says to me.... "I think you ought to build two for the other bedroom. I can move those tables that are there someplace." ...... These will have to be a bit smaller than the others, and she wants these a bit simpler. These will have a drawer at the top, but just an open shelf at the bottom. Guess what I'm starting on this afternoon?

Good to hear DW is progressing nicely, Gris. Marc, you can live with the old tunes for a while longer. John, happy 25th a day early.

Thanks Andy! That’s a huge load off my overthinking, OCD mind.
The original that came with the car has the common splits at the filter attachments.
So, really all I’m gonna need is another airbox and to make up a faux MAF because I’m going to a speed density system. I’ve already got a K&N w/ cut lid, so there it is.
Thanks again Andy.
Btw, the exhaust is already duals with cats. Years ago I contacted the Ohio EPA. I asked about switching over to a dual cat system and they were all for it. Once I get the car dialed in a bit, I’ll finish out the cats install along with an X-pipe.
Do any of you guys have an early untracked C4 airbox and coupler tube?

I honestly don't think it's an issue.

Air intakes are restricted by the size of the MAF or the throttle body, more than the filter housing. I would consider a K&N filter, tho... but that's because they do a great job and are reusable.

In short, I wouldn't worry about it. The air intake biz is based on bad bench racing concepts and good marketing. Short of very high power applications - think 800hp - the factory intake should be more than upto the job.

You will get more power from reconfiguring the OEM exhaust than anything else. The L98 single cat system is a real pig... replace that with a dual system, with dual performance cats and an xpipe, is worth 50hp. Add headers, add another 20+hp. Do that to a 383 and the upgrade will be insane.

Please note, none of what I said is smog legal in CA. Sad.

In my humble opinion the Porsche 911, 928 and American made Corvette were fine examples of both luxury and performance that commanded the attention of the discerning auto buyer during the tumultuous 80s. Not saying other offerings weren't more appealing but in many instances out of the reach of the average consumer.

I’m wondering how much power a stock air box for an ‘85-‘89 can handle.
They used them on Callaway Vettes.
Will they handle a healthy 383?
I’ve tried a box from later C4 with the larger opening, but it was shaped just good enough to never fit.
I’ve been thinking of the Vortex Rammer, but it’s not bigger at the connection than the early C4 box.
The TPIS box is no longer available.
Can’t use the “Claw.” It’s shaped like the later factory box.
Suggestions are very appreciated.
Thanks in advance...

Hi all, checking in.
I’ve been off work because of pandemic since Tuesday.
Some of skilled trades have been called back, but not me yet.
Probably going by seniority per shift. I think the repair guys are there for maintenance and they want at least one of us on each shift to be there for toolroom purposes.
One good part is I’m catching up with some old friends. Talked to my 3rd grade best bud on Friday night.
You guys all have a good week and stay healthy.

I don't subscribe, but I do watch. Lots of interesting stuff shows up there.

Cutlass Supremes of this era are starting to show up in AACA judging. It makes sense—they were hugely popular, selling over 3.5 million between 1978 and 1988. A couple years ago, I wrote about the 1981 Cutlass Supreme coupe.

Every Sunday is Palm Sunday at the Casey compound.
Separating the squash, zucchini and green beans to give to different people. Cutting and freezing some for the pigs and prepping some for us as well for short term storage. Gonna ride up to Mil and Fils and drop some on the front porch. We'll see what unfolds during the day. I wanted to go for the ride by myself but Sue thought otherwise. She said something like "We have all day."

HI JOHN---

CLOUDY AND COLD IN THE NATIONS THIS MORNING; THE TASTE OF SPRING WE HAD A FEW DAYS BACK IS A FADING MEMORY. THE CHEROKEES LONG FOR SUNSHINE.

ALL IS WELL AM GRISHEIM. THE CURRENT GRANNY GUARD IS BABY DAUGHTER. HER BOYS ARE WITH THEIR COUSINS AT OKMULGEE AND #2 SIL IS WORKING ON THEIR OLD HOUSE PREPPING IT TO SELL.

Homeschooling diary.
2 students suspended for fighting and 1 teacher fired for drinking on the job.
One of these little monsters called in a bomb threat.
My child just said "I hope I don't have the same teacher next year".... I'm offended.

Morning guys...cloudy and chilly this morning. This was NOT expected! I was expecting clear and a bit warmer .... spraying finish might have to put off until it's nicer.

Watched Palm Sunday services last evening.... not the same as being there.We will go up to church later to pick up our palm branches.

NOT SURE WHAT AN "ON DEMAND" WATER HEATER IS; IF IT'S LIKE WHAT WE HAD IN GERMANY YOU CAN RUN OUT OF HOT WATER RIGHT QUICK.

HOUSE HAD RADIATORS & FUEL OIL FIRED FURNACE IN THE BASEMENT.
NO HOT WATER TANK, JUST PIPE COILS RUNNING THRU THE FURNACE. OK AS LONG AS YOU BABIED IT ALONG JUST DON'T EXPECT A LOT OF HOT WATER :-0

Letty - thanks. I really appreciate the concern and wishes. It means a lot!!!

As for the on-demand heater... I am not sure it's the right choice for areas with winter... They work here, because winter means a low of 45F... that's not cold! Just seriously chilly. They have advantages... mostly the lack of a pilot light and compact size. I am just not sure how they would work in your winter. When that water comes out the tap at less than 50F, it will take more than a quick pass over heat to make it hot.

The windows will do wonders. We got them from Home Depot a few years ago. Had the windows in the kitchen replaced, along with the window in the livingroom. They are well worth it. Killed off a number of drafts in the kitchen and livingroom, but also are easier to open!

They totaled about $5k for all of them, installed. A total of 8 windows were installed, of various sizes. We also had insulation blown into the attic. That did a lot towards keeping the heat down in the summer. I want to do attic fans to move the air out, at some point.

Hey guys, I slept in then headed to the shop to try and finish up the construction of the second bedside table. I did get that accomplished and the stain on it. Tomorrow (it's supposed to be warmer low 70s) I'll get some finish sprayed on and then we can get them into the room....Rosie is ready for them, she moved things around today in prep.

It was pretty chilly when the day started but finally got up into the mid 50s late in the afternoon.

I'm tired and have dosed off a couple times this evening. Headed to bed.

A local farmer loaded Sue up with yellow squash, zucchini and green beans. She distributed some and brought some home. Farmers don't have a market so the stuff is either going to rot in the fields or they are giving it away. Unless they have crop insurance. Then it's just gonna wither away.

Very cool mask..... Uwoman is making me a Camo one..... niiiice!

I just invested some bucks in the FAANG stocks....they have a kind of mutual fund that buys a mix of shares from Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflicks and Google...... no losers there..... I do have regular Amazon stock also and we have Facebook and both those have done well...... they are down now somewhat but will head up soon... I hope...... Utilities are safe.....

When this finally passes there will be a boom.....so hang on and now is the time to buy in.....

I want to get in on some stocks right now but am worried to. Long range goals for me but still. I just had one bankrupt on me. I only had $1000 in it but shit I didn't need to lose it.
Im not smart about all that either. wished i was.
Happy belated birthday to UWoman!
Overcast here, on my day off. Naturally it was a very perfect day yesterday. I have some things to plant. Our fav nursery was open and masks and gloves and wipes in hand and literally nobody there but me and like 2 people, was okay. I have two new rose bushes, and a tray full of other odd and ends to add to my yard mess. I'll get those planted today and need to dig up some cannas for a friend I'll set on her doorstep probably tomorow.
My giant aloe dropped a leaf and alcohol and aloe gel is impossible to find here for making hand sanitizer. A friend is a nurse so she has alcohol but this giant leaf will give her plenty of aloe. I swear this plant is gonna start requiring small animals soon.
My pygmy date palms however aren't doing well. Each plant lost one trunk to bud rot. I watered and fertilized according to instruction but still happened. One had a bunch of brand new growth , long fronds ready to open and bam, flopped over. WTF.
Y'all have a good day and be safe.
And if you do not have a mask to wear out, I'm bout to use my motorcycle cloth face shield and cut filters for it myself. My vacuum uses hepa filter bags, 99.7% filtration so hoping it will help.

Thank you for taking the time to post info.
Arkansas is so way behind on this.
I want a water heater on demand, can't even find people willing to do the gas hookups.
I also worry as in my area it gets cold in the winter. I'm told avg ground temps are around 50 no matter what so to get water the temp we need we'd have to buy a larger unit than I feel we actually would need in order to get that "rise" to offset for cold winters.
I'm very uneducated on this but the water heater and some updated window are something I want done this year.

Andy - sympathies on the job situation and prayers things work out. We are afraid here too. We are one of the few states that are not on a lockdown. I don't want to be as it won't help any

It's not that I don't have things to do but under the current circumstance it's easy for me to ask "Why?" Why wash the cars, why work on anything? I put 10g's into the stock market on some seriously stressed companies in the hopes there would be some sort of rebound after this disaster rolls through. My gamble is down 20% already but I invested on the hopes of a one to two year return. Mixed stocks on cruise lines, airlines, MGM, IMAX a solar power company and a dental supply company. Things were looking up, then things started going down. I put it at risk when I invested it. In two years I 'll either look like a genius or and idiot. If my past is any indicator I better go looking for a dunce cap.
