    Help with Modern Car Problem

    Ignition problem is the most likely. Rough idle, sounds like misfiring. And it ran well for a while and is back to misbehaving. So bad fuel delivery would not do that. Faulty ignition system could though. Bad coil pack or a wiring problem, like loose electrical connection. And here are some common symptoms of bad ignition coil: Backfiring. The backfiring caused by your vehicle can indicate the symptoms of the ignition coil failure in its early stages. ... Fuel Economy. ... Engine Misfiring. ... Vehicle Stalling. ... Engine Jerking, Rough idling, Poor Power.

    One up front there, License V2-541. Looks distinctive, but not familiar to me. Movie is Shadow of a Doubt by the way; and a very good movie too.

    1922 Fiat 501 Targa Florio

    That's OK with me, but looks a little unconventional. That is a pulley, with the cable taking off straight from it's top, but at the bottom the cable takes off to the side of the pulley? If it is what I think I see then unusual wear on the pulley is what one would expect.

    Anyone need a small restoration project?

    They use those at the college I went to, still do. Davis near Sacramento. These vehicles are the pride of the Unitrans fleet, and they are available for chartering services with STS. They are roughly 60-65 years old and are kept in great shape by our fantastic shop mechanics. In fact, the bus pictured above is the only known London double decker that runs on clean natural gas in North America. They all seat 56 passengers, however they are not ADA-compliant. Additionally, there is no air conditioning, so it gets rather warm during the summer. No double deckers can be used for charters leaving Davis city limits.
  12. Very well preserved in that dry high desert climate!

    The decline of Sears

    Sears essentially ceased to exist when it WAS ACQUIRED by K-Mart. For $11B. Then K-Mart decided to rename the combined entity Sears Holdings only because Sears had a better name, more recognizable. The total market cap now is $247 Million, and so that includes both Sears and K-mart stores! Which makes the acquisition of Sears by K-Mart for $11 Billion look over-priced. I point this out because some people on this board seem confused, thinking Sears bought K-Mart, since it is called Sears holdings. It was like when Nations Bank, in Charlotte, NC bought Bank of America. Bank of America continues to exist, but only because of the generosity of Nations Bank in that they decided to keep that name and retire their own. Bank of America was headquartered in San Francisco, but the new one is in Charlotte, no surprise. On November 17, 2004, Sears announced it was being acquired by the management of Kmart Holding Corporation (company that owns Kmart) for $11 billion after Kmart completed its bankruptcy (USA Today Nov. 17, 2004). As a part of the acquisition, Kmart Holding Corporation along with Kmart was transferred to the new Sears Holdings Corporation and Sears was purchased by the new Sears Holdings. The new company started trading on the NASDAQ stock exchange, Sears sold its single letter ticker symbol 'S' it had held since 1910 to Sprint.[26] The new corporation announced that it would continue to operate stores under both the Sears and Kmart brands.

    What should you do with old car paint?

    I think the only reason Jake posted this is he wants to be told it's OK to just throw it out on the dirt and rake some leaves over it. But that could not be futher from the truth.
