    Ignorance? No, if I thought you were ignorant, I would say so. I think quite the opposite. My inarticulate phrasing made you assume that I lumped this (CAC) cast of characters into the larger...

    Aw geez......OK, maybe one last point in my defense.

    I am from New Jersey.

    We of New Jersey believe that those of you landing at Newark Liberty Airport are afforded the absolute height of...

    Gee, I think I REALLY ticked off the admins this time around. Oh well, I'll just login another five years from now and cynically decry the new biturbo I4 Vette as unproven technology and an affront...

    Arrogance? Moi?


    Hardly...once again, I point to the reality of the original premise of this thread. V8 engine production is in decline, as it should be.

    If you take the time to look at your...

    Oh, and I have one more counterpoint to one of your assertions. Something about Ferrari and the other brands not having idiotic debates about greener cars. The facts show actually the opposite is...

    God, it's been years since I posted here and I now I know why. Nothing has changed, especially with regard to facing reality. While the rest of the world goes into direct injection, variable...

    yup, I have Vintage Air and like it.

    You MAY want to keep the existing AC and convert it over to R134a refrigerant. Since you have to pull out the entire old to put in the new, it's the same...

    OK, time for an anecdote and confession.

    First the confession. I screwed up even the basics about TDC and installed the distributor off by one tooth.

    Boy, does this bring back memories. Note that I went to a Bill Bradley-spec'd 355. Among the many reasons that I did so was that no matter what I did, I had oil leaks all over the place with the...

    I like your fix because it's even cheaper than mine. I did the same thing but used a shut off valve that I got from NAPA. It's a screw-in valve. Of course, make sure that you put the valve in-line...

    You know, even though Obama said that the government will not make day-to-day decisions for Government Motors, I think that's hogwash.
