Thanks Teeb.... it's getting there... like I said before the car itself is like new due to a rotisserie restoration of the original California car. Which I'm told was almost rust free to begin with. The drivetrain is all there but not very streetable when I got it. fixing that now... makes me smile when I see it....love the lines...

I'm thinking of doing a 64 theme to my small but insignificant collection... I got the 64 Honda 250 Scrambler and now the 64 Polara....so next should be the 64 Corvette... right?

waiting to hear more about the possessed Pooorchaaa...or PP we can call it.... so weird....

workout day.... keep firing on all 8 Guru's

...no kidding.... I get confused with 2 wires.... much less a spaghetti of wires..... not for the meek....

it is a beautiful warm spring morning and the yard work calls out to us.... going out on a limb and take off the snow blower and hook up the mower on the JD mini tractor.... mow the front yard with the yard mower then fertilize everything....trying not to do a lot of mulching this year.... we hope to get 2 years out of what we did last year.... it takes a bunch...

beats shoveling snow Guru's

...I think that cat is on the take.... or maybe just has not acquired a taste for fresh mouse.....

Planting day is coming up fast..... all hell is about to break loose.... tens of millions of fertile acres will have seeds applied to them. All of it using #2 Diesel.... Ruby Red in color to designate off road use... don't get caught putting any of that in your pickup or Semi's.....

Go for the glory Guru's

High wind warnings thru the weekend... oh joy! temps are ok though... bought some new tires for the 64... Uniroyal Tiger Paws.... I like those tires.... got them on the 56... these are bit wider..... the tires that were on it were Hankook's but were 12 years old... they looked perfect but still.... start fresh... also got a rebuild kit for the steering column connector.... that's like the rag joint on a GM product.. not much left of the old one.... the plan is coming together...

what are you guys doing for car stuff? do stuff Guru's

keep up the good fight Tommy.... we are getting all our plans together for our first cruise...

Nice day today with very little wind.... been working on the 64... think we got the flickering headlights figured out... got all the amp drains found and corrected.... only losing about half amp of drain when the lights are on....

also found the tail of the tranny is sitting on the crossmember... which would add not good vibrations to the chassis... slowly getting the car dialed in... got on the new sun visors...... progress....

try to keep up Guru's

we also were swarmed and the 2 year old path of destruction thru the house is wide.... not enough food gone... but I have taken it on myself to make sure it is taken care of....

I think Jesus would be more interested in our wayward souls in this age as in any age....more so then in the government... salvation was his top priority always..... He was a great disappointment to the Jews because he did not topple Rome and take over the government of that time..... he was there for the people....

rainy foggy wet.... and I gotta go get all the vehicles licensed and plated.... gonna play? got to pay! go forth brothers and sisters.... and try not to mess it up...

you are going to the northlands early....we are going in June..... what boat line you on?

Are the police searching for him? If so they could get that info out of the food stamp folks... I suppose he had no cell phone.... Sorry to hear about Sue's med issues....

warmer here today but tied to the desk... but making sales... waiting on 6 sunvisor screws to finish getting those on...had to cut holes in the headliner but the bracket will cover...they had to do that at the factory also I'm thinking. Carb linkage is almost done should be able to start it soon... the dog is getting wore out chasing the FedEx and UPS trucks in and out of the driveway....

better times coming Guru's

speaking of which I'm working on sustainable or regenerative farming practices for our Potato growers who sell to Frito-Lay or their parent company Pepsico......

innovation is coming in Ag but we have to have real solutions not the we have to go back to horse drawn equip and manure to feed the world.... the old adage it takes energy to make energy is true and that was the beauty of Nuclear power that was to be running all our electricity needs now and in the future...... where did that go?

It takes decades to change farming practices and the invention of new power sources like the synth fuels...

sun is out and warmer weather on the way..... yay...

...and don't forget they are useless when it gets real cold out....I mean like 5 to 10 degrees or less.... nothing wants to work on them...batteries won't charge and I hear they hardy want to run..... I mean I don't either but you can jump in the ICE car and go all day.....

yesterday I had to run to Speedway in the Star City for some parts....while there I stopped by the kids house where my wife was making curtains and painting a wall..... I took over the painting and was there until around 3 then back home and then my friend across the section called and needed help putting his 99 Suburban 6.5 turbo diesel engine back together... had a valve broke and decided to take both heads off to redo the top end... about 250K miles on it got home about 8:30 last night and was wore out....

Rainy and damp and in the mid 40's today.... got my own work in the shop getting the new carb sorted out on the Dodge...

watch your 6 Guru's

....so is the Jonah car one of the Corvettes? Do you have 2 or 3... I'm somewhat confused..... is the Jonah car the Tomato? need clarity....thanks....

got the trunk done in the 64 and the new cover in it... looks good I think. took about 300 bucks worth of Dynamat to cover the vastness of it... it should help with road noise and make the kick ass stereo sound better whenever I get that in.... next is to finish getting the bench seat back in place is is fighting me every inch of the way... you can't hardly get to the bolts that bolt the seat to the the floor mounted seat brackets..... I suppose the seat should have been mounted to the brackets first and the whole thing put on and bolted to the floor...... hmmmmmm.....

cold cloudy and windy here today.... good shop day... the new carb is next....

have at it Guru's

..so the cat is indoors now? just checking.....

working on the 64 putting in front seat extenders.... I swear those cars have shrunk inside over time.... moving the bench seat back 2".... doesn't sound like much but it helps.... also the new Edelbrock carb came in so will begin that transformation..... I should do some real work also.....but I keep finding myself in the shop working on the car....

got a haircut also.... can't forget that.....

raise your voices Guru's.....

I don't care if we paid everyone several hundred thousand dollars a year.... my question is how you gonna pay for it... Taxes? How is that working out for them.... every 100 days another day older and deeper in debt.... I know make the rich pay for it.... oh wait the rich just moved their money offshore.... hmmmm..... wait we will call the middle class rich and get it from them.... and that is what they have done.....

we don't really make that much but I have an LLC that I can write off stuff used in the business.... expenses, the truck and such... but some of the tax rates are in the 25% range and some will be over that..... We took money out of savings to pay off the house this year and that is going to bite us big time..... I don't trust the stock market so did not want to see that evaporate when we could put it into fixed assets and live in it...... especially with the socialists wanting everyone to be broke and dependent on them.... asshats....

the word taxes makes me feel all sick inside..... I hate the word.... I hate the IRS... who the hell has the right to take 35% or more of your hard earned money...? I'm all about paying my fair share but our idiots in power in their wisdom have decided its ok to run a Trillion dollars in the hole every 100 days..... ya.... every 100 days.... there is like 3 and half of those every year..... It's a black hole and we all keep throwing our money in to it.....

Hell... the Boston Tea Party was because of a 3% tax and we stand idlily by while they take us for at least a third of our yearly income.... and then there is State taxes and fuel taxes and sales taxes.... the air that you breath taxes.... WTF.... I'm going to march on Washington....whose with me? Damnation on all of them in charge.... they be selling us all down the river... sunsabiches.....

That ends our daily rant.... please stay tuned for the next one.....

let's get grumpy Guru's

Ya....sunny but only 23 degrees with a high of 45....March is not a spring month in our country.... it's a teaser month... Spring the way I like it is in May.....

Worked on the Polara Bear this weekend in the warm shop.... got projects all the car going on.... the trunk is getting some Dynamat installed.... I thought I had plenty but turns out it was about half as much as I will need.... UPS and FedEx are fighting to get in the driveway with parts I got coming...

I'm civilizing the car..... many projects on the table...

keep it real Guru's

Spent the day in the shop working on the 64....putting Dynamat in the trunk and assorted small things need attended to... waiting on parts to make some bigger changes. I had Sebring on in the shop and was disappointed when the #3 car running 2nd in class with 6 minutes left was hit from behind and spun out of the race..... they looked good up till then... #4 car out earlier with clutch problems.....

sunny and somewhat warm here today..... not much else going on..... enjoy Guru's

warm here and kinda cloudy.... fire warnings are out.... dry as a bone around here....we need a nice 2" rain over 24 hours to soak in..... I'm breaking out the rain dance gear...

starting to get some parts in for the 6T4... new rubber mat for the trunk in the traditional blue and silver plaid....also Dynamat sound deadener to keep the noise down in the cavernous trunk.... thinking of taking off the Holley 850 double pumper and putting on an Edlebrock 800 AVS2 for street use... the fuel mileage is alarming to me even though I know its a huge engine.... this is me having fun...

have some fun Guru's...

You better let the cat in also....you know your going to eventually....

Ya Tee.... nice work on the cross.....

spent most of yesterday working on the 64.... it has a few issues that are mostly wiring related.... I hate F'n wiring...also did a clay bar of the whole paint job and it helped a lot but to really make it nice it will need buffed out I'm thinking..... May try the ceramic route first see how that works....

beautiful weather here today...may hit 70 they say.... bring it I say...

keep your cards close Guru's

Condolences on your friends passing Tee.....

Got the JD 4110 sitting in the shop...still has the snow blower hooked up.... thinking we may get that spring blizzard over our way yet... they did out in western Nebraska with 17" of snow and I80 closed from Kearney to Ogallala ..... a couple of work mates got stranded in it... one going west the other east... lucky to get motel rooms... all open now..

been working on the Polara.... it has some issues.... it is set up for strip and street but more strip... I knew this going in and the price was reasonable for a totally redone car from the bottom up. I will need to calm it down a bit..... make it more civilized... the 505 Wedge is very nice around town..... until you get on it......

sunny and warm here Guru's..... gotta love it....

work work work....it's the curse of the drinking class.... took the Polara Bear out for a spin yesterday.... lots of rear end noises and clunking and banging.... loose tailpipes... took it on the highway and the car was driving well in OD at 70 mph 2500 rpm.... then I stopped and came back the same way and the OD would not engage so I was stuck driving 60 mph at 3000 rpm.... ya the old girl got some issues to be worked out.... drove nice though..... I was smiling a lot....especially when I got on it in 3rd gear... not brave enough to try it in 2nd gear.... 4:10 rear gears.... very lively off the line...

never give up Guru's

Ya was gone yesterday to pick up the Dodge Polara Bear 64 Super Stock.... took it for a drive and its a beast.... needs some TLC to get it in a more streetable setup.... it cruises at 2500 rpm at 70 mph in overdrive with the 4:10 rear gears..... I feel that I can own a 573 hp car now that I am more mature.....

pics I need to figure out pics....... what size can go on here? geez.... I'm not very technical.....

The car has basically sat in a heated and cooled shop with a cover on it for 15 years.... maybe has a 1000 miles on it since a complete restoration in 08 and 09. Body, frame, floors all fixed. Car was manufactured in LA and spent most it's life out there so not a lot had to be fixed as far as rust and such.... love dem old Mopars.....
