    I enjoy both classic and modified (hot rods) cars. I'm lucky in that I enjoy doing all my own work, because I couldn't afford to pay someone else to do it for me!

  1. "Used Cars" ... what a GREAT movie!! Cheers, Grog
  2. What is the stamping? As near as I can tell, it reads: "4.6X144". Or am I seeing things? If so, what size would that be ... metric? Cheers, Grog
  3. I posted my 1938 Chevrolet for sale on Hemmings. I called them up on a Friday afternoon, it was on their website the next day, by Tuesday I had an offer, the deal was sealed on Thursday, and the funds were wired into my bank account by early afternoon on Friday. Hemmings Classifieds did a good job for me, on a car that is not overly desirable. Cheers, Grog
  4. I'm not sure what you mean by "out there", but a personal check has a lot of one's personal information on it. For example, my checks have name, address, phone number, bank routing number, bank account number and my signature. The only good thing, is that a transaction by check is only SUPPOSED to involve the payer, the payer's bank, the payee and (perhaps) the payee's bank. I guess that the best thing about a check is that the potential for 'hacking' is less than for many on line transactions. Nothing is really secure these days, but my guess is that the most secure transaction would be a cashier's check which would not have the payer's information printed on it. Cheers, Grog
  5. As 30DodgePanel wrote above, "doxing" is generally not illegal (a crime); however, it can open one to the possibility of a liability suit. Here's a link to a short explanation of "doxing" and its legal ramifications: https://blogs.findlaw.com/blotter/2018/01/is-doxing-illegal.html Don't "dox" me dude (please)! Cheers, Grog
  6. If '63 Chevy Owner tried that these days he'd be charged with all sorts of crimes, including, but not limited to: assault, battery, sexual harassment, inappropriate touching, violation of safe space, having a hissy fit etc. The guy should, instead, actually be rewarded for removing inappropriately discarded refuse from the hood of his car ... or rescuing the misguided damsel from impending bodily injury due to collapse resulting from the inadequate structural design of the dance floor-sized '63 Chevy hood. If it looks like a dance floor ... Cheers, Grog
  7. I've also had enough of the doowop stuff and think that a mix of music from different eras might be nice. Note, however; that I do not think that rap is music! Cheers, Grog
  8. Lebowski; Thanks for posting the video. Cheers, Grog
  9. The most valuable aspect of a CarFax report, in my opinion, is the ownership history of the vehicle. If that history reveals several years of ownership in the "rust belt", I'll generally pass on that vehicle. Cheers, Grog
  10. Well, it's a GMC Truck with a GMC diesel engine. While obviously not stock, how correcter can ya get? It looks like it could be a GM 6V53 engine with a turbo ... torque city! It looks like someone did a nice job. Cheers, Grog
  11. ` Isn't that the purpose of a deposit? If a deposit is nonrefundable, that really puts the pressure on the buyer to perform per the contract. Cheers, Grog
  12. I think that you're correct with your suggestion. It could be that Mike's trophy was the "Locomobile Cup for Best Saint Bernard" ... or sumthin' like that. The LKA was the Ladies Kennel Association, founded by ladies of the nobility in England in 1894. The Ladies Kennel Association of America (LKAA) was founded in 1900. I assume, but don't know for sure, that these two organizations were related with the LKAA being an affiliate of the parent organization, LKA. Whatever it is, Mike's trophy looks pretty nice. Is it all copper? Cheers, Grog
  13. Don't you mean 156 KPH, not MPH? Even 156 KPH (94 MPH) would have been quite fast on an interstate, but not especially dangerous or irresponsible; however, 156 MPH ... ? As far as I can tell, the SM was, as you wrote, "amazingly fast", but had a published top speed of 137 MPH. A real factory hot rod for sure. As far as Citroens are concerned, my favorites are the 2CV and the old Traction Avant. Cheers, Grog
  14. I agree, either next to the ocean or in an intertidal zone. I've seen similar states of deterioration in the Bahamas and Caribbean. Cheers, Grog
