Re: Open car arm rest

Wash the car?? Why would I do that? I do usually wash it once a year or so.It's an open car so I just don't squirt much water up around the openings.I will have to look,but I think my door top covers...

Re: Lebaron Bonney

Re: Got One - Now the VIN search

In N.H. if you build a street rod you are supposed to certify it as a street rod.You do NOT use the existing numbers.I've seen it happen a couple of times,it happened once with me.I bought a complete...

Re: Pronunciations

It's also a regional thing.Where I am there is no R in,corn,car,wiper,etc.A lot of times there is an R in the word wash though.A couple of years ago we were at a Christmas party(no R) at the salvage...

Re: New York State Department of Motor Vehicles

Ronn,It sounds like you are thinking of a VIN inspection,or verification.These guys are talking about the yearly safety inspection done after you get it registered.

Re: Gas today-can you beat this?

$2.25-$2.49 today where I am.Nothing I own seems to care what I put in it for gas.I thought a Yamaha 1700 I have might care,but it says 87 octane minimum.I tried it and it still runs the same as the...

Re: Spindle locking bolt

While the hole is not supposed to be tapered,I think a few are.Age and abuse.The nut is actually the spindle stop,when you turn the wheels around to full warp the back of the spindle should hit...
