  1. I'll bet that's easier than you'd think. Look at the 'wall wart' (aka: brick that you plug into the wall) and find out what the output voltage is. I wouldn't be surprised if it's 12 VDC...
  2. The stunt car was allegedly found recently in a Mexican junk yard (https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a15342240/authenticity-of-bullitt-mustang-in-mexico-confirmed-drivetrain-and-much-bodywork-not-original/). I wonder if the new owner of the 'hero car' will try to complete the set...? I hope the new owner of the McQueen car simply preserves the car as-is and circulates it for others to see.
  3. I'll say it goes for more than $2M...
  4. Goldie tells me that lead additives make the gas taste 'skunky'.
  5. Does anyone know whether that's Tim Allen sitting at the keyboard in the F&I office at the Buick dealership on page 9 of the new Riview? I'm guessing the photo is from the mid-to-late 80's...
  6. Do a couple of 1,000 mile oil changes and drive it!
  7. That sure IS a pretty car -- but please swap that anachronous T-handle for a proper ball!
  8. Interesting car! Any interior photos...?
  9. Hmmm, that's odd, given the Q-Jet carb was bigger than the Carter (due to the massive secondaries). I'm guessing that maybe the Q-Jet Sniper has smaller primary air valves to match the manifold, but same smaller secondaries as the square bore version?
  10. The rubber ones would (theoretically) perform as original. The poly bushings would hold the rear axle more precisely, however, would also transmit more energy to the frame (and ultimately to the cabin). Unless you're upgrading the other suspension bushings for ultimate handling (i.e., poly everywhere else), I'd probably stick with the OEM replacement type.
  11. That's a neat picture -- '58, '59 and '60 at the dealership.
  12. Goldie came with a set of these wheels. They were mounted with a 1/4" spacer between the wheel and the hub to overcome interference between the wheel and the fins on the drums. Even so, the outer edge of the wheel just 'kissed' the fins. I wound-up buying an original set of '67 road wheels from PWB when he switched his Riviera over to deluxe wheel covers.
  13. I'm hoping for an early Spring!
  14. Oooooh, couldn't help but notice that '65 Bonneville in the garage... That's an awesome set of 1965 GM iron!
