Damn Tire Rack, WTH?

I ordered tires for the Blazer project yesterday morning around 9 and had them delivered about 11:30 today. That's crazy fast. I never buy tires from Tire Rack but the price was too good to pass up (wasn't going to get rubber until November), I guess they are on the list of places to look now.

Black Driveways Matter

I put this job off for years but I finally pulled the trigger on replacing my 40 year old driveway.

HUGE Improvement visually.

I just hope the hill doesn’t get too slick in the Winter.


4500 Sq/Ft of black to assist global warming. ;)

My Camaro is trapped in the garage for at least a week. :(

I’m not planning to drive on it for two weeks, just to be safe.

Going out of my head on a fitting, need some help please

I bought a fuel rail from Ebay for my Blazer project. I'm using an aftermarket manifold and I had to try two different fuel rail sets to get something that will work. I need to put a push connect fitting in the end of on rail and they are ORB fittings on the end of the rails. I measured and the closest match was the -10AN ORB, it was too big. I bought a -8AN ORB and it was too small. I have no idea what the hell I'm looking for now. I'd prefer a fitting to go to the 3/8 push connect but at this point I'll take a plug and drill and tap a NPT hole if that's that it takes.

I'm not sure how well I explained that, let me know if I can clarify anything. Any help is appreciated.

Pictures in case it helps.

I don’t own a torch so I’ve needed to get more creative, on occasion.

A dremel and sawzall have been my “go to” tools, several times.

I just came home to a flooded garage (wet floor anyway)

It's no secret that prices are going up fast. I'd like to know how you guys feel it is affecting you. Food and fuel seem to be the two biggest things that affect us every day. For me, the increase in food prices hits me the hardest. I can cut back on driving and that cuts back on gas costs, but cutting back on food isn't as easy. Yes, energy prices for heating and electricity are up too, and again that is difficult to cut back on. I did some serious energy saving changes to my house 20 years ago, so that helps, but I can't do much more.

Any of us "old" folks saw this same thing 40 years ago and we managed to get through it so I don't see any problem getting through it again this round. The economy has its ups and downs, and if you are lucky enough to live long enough, you get to see it multiple times.

So, I just try to cut out the unnecessary things and buy my food wisely. I won't starve to death, but I might complain about prices. As long as I have meat, potatoes, and ice cream...

Dude... Where's my KIA?

If anyone on the board owns a Kia or Hyundai... Beware of the "Kia Boys"!

Car thefts have gotten totally out of hand in the upper Midwest because these punks have figured out how easy it is to steal these cars.

Pop window, break column and turn a switch.
It takes mere seconds to steal these cars.

An elderly couple's car was hit by one of these stolen cars and the woman was killed couple of days ago.

They are almost always juveniles and they are being released to the "custody" of their parents, in my county.
They are back out on the street the next day, stealing more cars... Just for kicks. :mad:

Tree Sap Remover

I have an Oak tree that's dropping the "honey dew" all over my car. I need to remove it from the paint on my daily driver. I'm looking for something quick an easy. The stuff is stuck pretty well. I used a razor blade on the windows and it took a bit of effort to get it off. It's my daily with 220k+ so I'm not looking to win any trophies but I'd like to keep it looking nice. Any suggestions on a product to help get it off?

Currently on hold with Summit for the last 10 minutes trying to see how they want me to handle this. I ordered a pair of axles, I can tell by the weight one is completely gone.

Spin Launch

No... It's not how some of us leave the line at the strip. 🤪

It's a small-satellite launch system currently undergoing testing.

I can't understand how this thing wouldn't tear itself apart once the "projectile" is released.

Wouldn't it be easier to launch/release TWO at the same time?
(One up and one down. :confused:)

Interesting idea.
So much simpler than a 100% fuel propelled launch from the ground.

25 years ago, Bismarck got a big snowstorm in April that left us with 17" of snow along with high winds. After the storm the local parking lot of the shopping center looked like this.

Today, we are getting a similar one expected to last two days. The current forecast is for 12-24" of snow this time with 50 mph winds to pile it up. The parking lots might look like this again soon.

Any wheel decoder websites out there?

I'm trying to figure out just what the wheels are on the Blazer I bought. The numbers on the back of the wheel a 18x8.5 jj et13 I got the 18 by 8.5 part, just not sure if that's telling me the backspacing or if I need to measure it.

If you are using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, be aware that both of them have a serious security flaw. Make sure you upgrade to the new "fixed" version to safeguard your system.
Google had a flaw in Chrome, and since Microsoft built Edge from Chrome, they inherited the same flaw.

Swap meet etiquette

It should go without saying but I gotta say it. If the swap meet ad does not concern you (buying or selling the parts) stay out of it. Good deal, bad deal anything short of fraud and you are not interested in buying the parts we don't need to hear your opinion. If you would like to discuss a specific part, modification etc, please start thread in the corresponding section.

It's not just the polite way to act, it's the rules here. :)

He bought it new, it only has about 50,000 miles on it, he has done the heads.

I know a couple guys on here had talked about wanting to buy one. Please do so I stop being tempted

Login prompt changed along with the right side of the screen being filled with Latest posts. Why change something that was working perfectly? Or was the site hacked? It’s terrible IMO. I thought I was hacked.
