  1. Beautiful Barney! Great job... again!
  2. I used to autocross a Dodge Neon ACR back in the late 90s, early 2000's. The hot setup was 225s up front and 205s in the rear with 1/2" toe out in the rear. Definitely not a high speed track setup ;-). You would induce as much trailing throttle oversteer you could muster and then plant your right foot when you were pointed in the right direction.
  3. I believe I disconnected the brake booster and connected to that port, but I can't recall exactly. The old memory isn't what it used to be ๐Ÿ˜‰ Mine's a tii as well
  4. I bought this vacuum gauge about a year and a half ago when I was having some running issues. The gauge pointed to a timing issue, so I bought this timing light at the suggestion of @'76mintgrรผn'02 who highly recommended it. I adjusted the timing and the car has run great since.
  5. Went out for a drive yesterday and ran across this mural in downtown Clover, South Carolina. I had to stop to take a photo.
  6. I repolished Fritz in preparation for The Vintage. I had done it for the 2019 Vintage 18 months ago, but it's since dulled. It took about ten hours, but the shine came back out. I'm guessing this may be the last time. Fritz may not have any more shine left in him ๐Ÿ˜ž ... and a little Flitz for Fritz to shine up the bumpers ๐Ÿ˜‰
  7. @EPKLove the photo through the rear window Erik! Your daughter grabbed some great shots!
  8. Hi Carl, Thanks for the reply. Yes, I guess, I'll consider the Synchromax a "flush" for a few hundred miles and switch over to Redline MTL. The funny thing is, I have two quarts of MTL that were sitting right next to the Synchromax. I should have done the research first. Luckily, it's super easy to change. When I bought the car, I did a full shifter rebuild including the platform mounts and support, so all is super tight and solid. I suppose if it were still floppy and vague like it was, I would never have noticed the difference. Thanks again, Tim
  9. I've started Vintage prep on Fritz, so I changed my engine oil & trans fluid. When I drained the trans oil (is's a 5 speed), it smelled like diff oil, so I assume it was 75W-90 or something similar. I replaced with Purple Power Synchromax I had intended for the E36 I recently sold. I took Fritz out for a drive after the change and noticed an annoying vibration from my shifter as if the shift knob is loose, but it's not. The vibration will stop if I put slight pressure on the shifter. I'm thinking the fluid is too thin and allowing some internal noise to emanate through the shift lever. Any thoughts or similar experiences ? Thanks! Tim
  10. @EPK Erik, I haven't been on for a long time either. Funny I logged in today and saw your post. Where is that Dam? I'd love to find it. I've been driving Fritz every weekend. Took a run up around Crowder's mountain today and stopped by one of my favorite places to take a car photo.
  11. Barney, whatever happened to the one you picked up in North Carolina? Is this it?
  12. Went out for an 80 mile drive with friends today. Couldn't ask for a better day!
  13. Thanks Erik! Looking forward to getting out to some events again. We're having a socially distanced Clownshoe photo shoot Sunday. It'll be my first get together with any car friends in months.
  14. Took Fritz out for a drive as I've tried to do every weekend over the past few months. I haven't done any work on him since the Vintage was moved, nor have I been active on the forum. I've got lots of things going on, but not enough to keep me out of the driver's seat. Funny how a quick trip to grab a bagel turns into an hour and a half drive ๐Ÿ˜‰
