Not sure if I am going to make it this year or not.

One of my friend's has a birthday on the 6th, and I agreed to take her to Boston for a day (on the weekend). If we do it the weekend before, I may come on Friday after work, and leave on Sunday. Probably have the Dodge; I can't get the Mustang dusty, and I'm cringing at the possibility of getting caught in the rain with it.

Might bring a friend.

That Ford product had better be your Vic. It's been 2 years since it's been painted and we still haven't seen it in person.

I'm taking my shitbox Town Car if it'll make it. It's in pretty sore shape at the moment.

My girlfriend and I will be there Friday afternoon

As long as my boss doesn't give me shit for my days off, I'll at least be there Fri-Sun, I couldn't get Monday off. Might show up Thursday if I can get myself together in time.

I'll be taking the 91... every time I drive the 85 to try to get it to quit again, it re-starts before I have a chance to try to figure out what's going on.
I just know it'll decide to quit for good on the way to SF, or worse, on the way home.

It's cool, mine's hood has about 12 dents in it, the moldings look horrible, it's got awful exhaust leaks, the belt squeals no matter what I do (I think one of the pulleys is worn out... last option). We all drive old beat ass cars. Show yours off!

Mine was mechanically sound but looked horrible. Now it looks good, but the mechanicals are starting to go again. Its an endless cycle. Just about the time its mechanically perfect again it'll probably need another paint job.

mine is pretty much as i bought it last spring (when i was still off work)...havent had much money to really start workin on it,but as transprtation goes its ok.....body is rough,but repairable,runs ok,but will probably need the "usual" stuff within the next year...interior is average...,but,for a cheap "builder" it will do nicely for what i have planned

I gave the 91 an early oil change a good look-over, checked the plugs, new fuel filter, filed the crust off the cap/rotor bits, and replaced the LF window motor. I also replaced the tattered LF door pull handle with the one I had harvested, lost, and then found recently. Also fixed the cruise control - I'm thrilled about that. I charged the A/C, but it still only sorta works. I'm gonna miss not having the 85's stereo for the ride...

87gtVIC

I have been prepping for the trip as well.

Yesterday I polished all of the brite work on the outside of the car and today I cleaned up the interior. A day or two before the trip she will get washed, clayed, polished and waxed. :)

I am doing a little prep for scottfest. The car has required premium fuel with stock timeing and the left side tail pipe carbons up while the right is clean.

Pulled the plugs on the wagon, shot an oz. of top engine cleaner in the cylinders and put the plugs back in. Tomorrow I will remove the plugs, spin the motor, install new motorcraft platinums plugs, then feed a carbon cleaner "run-rite" in the throttle body for ten min, pop a can of fuel injector cleaner in the tank. Finish up with new wires, cap, rotor and oil change.

I bought an msd cap and rotor to replace the ones in there. I try to use quality and had a "standard" cap and rotor in there. I forgot standard uses brass terminals and is made in usa. I did not need to spring for the msd stuff but it also seems to be excellent quality. Usually standard is good quality.

Last month I looked in the cylinders, saw them all carboned up, used the throttle body injected cleaner and have been adding the fuel system cleaner with every tank. I am told ridding the car of carbon deposits is a legnthy process. Sometime after next week I will pull some plugs and look inside with a camera to judge the progress or lack thereof.

I am also going to change the left o2 sensor with a "standard" unit. The car has been running rich on the left side and it does not appear to be the injectors so..... We will see how that works out.

my stuff is all broken in some way and paint bad on em all, the 92 blew a header gasket, the mk7 needs 2 non china tires and an alignment, the yoda runs on 3 cyls unless your on the gas, and the towny needs a rear rebuilt, trac lock rebuild and a header gasket and inspection and emisions (still registered at my parents house next county over lol) i gotta put some cats on it, i dont feel like driving 75 miles to where i used to work.

I don't even know if I'm going to have time to wash the car. We're in the middle of a bunch of involved stuff at work, and I'll probably be working long hours till at least Wed, and I have to leave Thurs evening to pick up Jason at the airport. I may be hauling my new dash speakers and sub up in the trunk to be installed over the weekend. Car is dirty, been driven in the rain a couple times and its got bug splat all over the place, plus it needs to be vacuumed badly.

MrMarquis
08-06-2012, 09:25 PM
My car is pretty dirty right now too. Hopefully I'll get the time Thursday to give it a good scrub down and wax. Polish up the bumpers and wheel covers and whatnot and be good to go.

I don't see a point in washing your cars/wheels. As soon as you get on the driveway, it's gonna get dirty lol. And if you're camping down in the field, and you're using your car to drop off your camping stuff, your wheels are most likely gonna be a muddy mess.

I think I will be leaving Yonkers and heading over the GWB late morning or early afternoon on Friday. I am flexable at this point. If the route and general time works out with anyone give me a shout. I could meet you anywhere along the way.
