    05 Silverado, Recent Odd Oil PSI Drop

    The Final Send

    Just watched this on Fox, about the best clip I've watched in a while. It's a tire burning salute to an old veteran - to those who are hesitant to click on links.

    Flex Plate Cracked?

    Noticed a new strange rattle/knocking noise with my 79 Z-28. Noise is synchronous to the engine, not random. I got under the car, engine running and used a stethoscope. I isolated the source to the torque converter and flex plate area. I've visually checked the flex plate 3 times, both sides...

    Anyone come up with something practical, like a 2 cup holder that is (semi) permanent mounted that doesn't require a lot of cutting or replacing the console? I have two holders, one fits down into the console box, other wedges between seat and console. Console box one works okay but I have...

    Dash Face Touchup

    My 79 Z-28 has the "almost black" face on it. There's a few scratches around the headlight and wiper switches. I tried a real small spot with a black sharpie, but that doesn't match. Anyone know of a paint, dye stick or anything that will match?

    In reference to the "Another Running Hot" thread

    I didn't want to hijack the thread but have a couple questions about some posts. Some guys are sealing their LS fans (which I have) to the radiator. How are you doing this, duck tape? My under hood temperatures are already high and I'm wondering that if you funnel all incoming air through the...

    Sway Bars?

    I still have the stock sway bars on my 79 Z-28. I pushed it pretty hard around some sharp curves at 60 - 70 mph the other day. It felt like it was falling over on the nose or pushing. What is the step up, bang for the buck deal in better sway bars? Here's my current setup; Front Upper A arm...

    Keeping Radio Presets

    I have a trunk mounted battery with a quick disconnect on the negative side. I use this as a theft deterrent by disconnecting the battery and locking the trunk. (I know it can be stolen at any time.) I have a small piece of speaker wire jumped around the quick disconnect to maintain radio...

    Ebay/USPS Shipping?

    I bought a hubcap for my 56 from an Ebay seller mid Dec and have not received it. I rarely ship anything and not familiar with how all this works. I contacted the vendor via ebay email, he says it has been shipped. Tracking number shows a shipping label has been created, and USPS is awaiting...
