Southern Minnesota Auto Restorers Show

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Southern Minnesota Auto Restorers Show
I went to the last big show of the year near me. An hour north of me, and a beautiful day, as it usually is for this show. My exhaust leak came back, pretty sure I need to add a hanger.

My CATL Drive Experience

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on My CATL Drive Experience
I thought I'd make my own thread about the CATL Drive Experience this past weekend. I heard about it when originally planned, but my fleet was a mess without a proper running car. Fast forward to a week or so before the date of CATL and I suddenly had a car that was running, with new tie rods and idler arm, and I had the weekend off, so, how about taking the car on a test drive, to Illinois? This time out, I only grabbed my tools, Jack, and Jack stands, and I left the belt and ballast...

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1970 New Yorker Interior Pieces
Listing some interior parts from a 1970 New Yorker. Blue cloth interior, have window cranks, armrests, door panels, etc. Panels were in very nice condition, wood inserts and carpet were in great shape.

It’s All Graham’s Fault

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on It’s All Graham’s Fault
That Laura and I bought this 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited today.

View attachment 307304

I had been talking to Graham for the last month about getting Laura into a Jeep Cherokee, as she can't sit down into cars so easily. He gave me some good advice about a couple cars we looked at, and helped me to get a good price, well how to go about getting a good price. We went to the dealership of a classmate of Laura's, and he did even better on the price than I was expecting, he beat the EP by...

I saw more Tesla's in the Minneapolis/St. Paul are over the past two weeks, somewhere around twenty if them. This charging station had one or two at most times during the day. Saw all the various models and a ton of colors.

I had to go up and get some go juice for the riding mower, and what do I see tucked inside a car trailer? A 1972 Dodge Charger, Orange with a white interior and a white vinyl top.

It turns out the car was bought new in beautiful downtown Blue Earth at the old Dodge dealership, by it's owner Greg, whom I talked with briefly. He said it had one repaint after it sat for a while at one of his relatives, who told him he should do something with it. They took the 340...
