first i got most of the snow off it and started it and let it warm up since it hasn't run for a few days

then after it idled for about 6 or 7 minutes i was giving it some small revs and then i revved it to about 5 grand and my friend jumped back because it shot flames out. he got his camera out and i revved it some more and he recorded it. i took a still shot from the video

I opened the garage door and looked at it, thinking that I have to get the plumber's wrenches out and some hot water to attempt a removal of the clutch master cylinder cap without snapping it in half. All was fine till I left it outside for a week while I went off to warmer climes. It didn't like being outside in the frigid St. Louis weather and I could tell 'cause the clutch was softer than usual. 3 years and I have not done one thing to the clutch hydraulics other than check the level and I can't remember the last time I did that.

Feeling bad that I haven't done anything lately including drive my dear car on salted, ice covered roads, I made it a new signature image. I think I heard some noise from the garage after I did this...

edit: you can barely make out, but the reason I took this picture late last summer was because there were three rainbows...

Tried to bleed my clutch hydraulics. After about an hour, I now figure that I will be making my first purchase from Rodney. I cannot complain too much though. Other than running new brake fluid through it two years ago, it is all original. If I do the master, I may as well do the slave. (<<< That sounds horrible when spoken aloud! )

Went to the yard with Frizlefrak to get a patch panel for my inner fenderwell on my coupe. Got the panel and scrounged around in the yard. Frizlefrak needed a dash pad for one of his trucks so we looked at every Ford truck in the lot. Did not find one but he did find a gauge cluster with the factory tach so we pulled it. On our way out, I realized that I did not have my patch panel - where in the heck did I lay it down? Spent another 1/2 houur retracing our steps and my son found it. We met up with Jeff and went to lunch then back to my place to work on the V8 Coupe. It was a pretty nice day so we spread out the lawn chairs and that's where we sat the rest of the day. Dan left around 4:00 and Jeff and I sat out there till 8:30! Never touched the car! Maybe tomorrow I'll get something done

I picked up a rusted out 86'SE a few days ago, and today I got the car completely stripped and ready to be cut in half. I'm making a trailor out of the rear end

Well... I actually purchased the car near the very end of October of 2010. I've only just gotten around to posting here, so forgive me for being late.
I won't take up more space than is necessary, so no interior shots will be posted, but the interior is nearly immaculate. A VERY slight droop in the headliner is all I can really complain about.





I took the "Pontiac" vinyl off the quarter windows... I just wasn't feelin' 'em. The windows are cracked now, so two turbo scoops from fierostore.com are a definite for the future of this GT. And never mind the Ford in the picture; my dad has my mom a bit disillusioned when it comes to vehicles, lol.



Some delamination is obvious, but from my understanding, they could look FAR worse; some of the mounting tabs are broken, unfortunately, and are really only held in/on by one or two of the retaining long bolts per taillight.

'87 GT, 5-speed Getrag. The car has a little over 150k miles on it. Power everything and everything works, except the back-up lights; the previous owner rigged them to a toggle switch, for whatever reason... I'm assuming it's a bad ground, as the lights used to go on and off when going over bumpy terrain. Now, they never turn on. The window motors could use replacing, same with the power locks, but the headlight motors both work quickly. The decklid release switch sometimes doesn't work - I've yet to diagnose this. When starting the car, you have to blip the throttle for a bit in order for it to hold idle, but there's a '97 GTP being used as a winter rat in my driveway with about 89k original miles on it... so I'm not too bothered by the idle.

Just the other day, I removed the rear wing; it appears to be in great condition, while the wing mounts are fair. I may sell it, if anyone's interested, as I'm opting for a lip spoiler a la fierofiberglass.com. I didn't take any pictures of the car without the wing, but everyone knows what a GT looks like without the wing on it, so I won't bother.

Took the car off the road due to a failing slave cylinder, actually. Rodney Dickman's master and slave are the first (or one of the first) things to be had come winter's passing. I have plenty of ideas for the vehicle, my most ambitious being the L67 from the '97 GTP. Given my lack of ability and experience with vehicles in general, I'll be relying heavily on Pennock's for the swap and any other mods I go for.

Thanks for lookin' !

YAY! another NY'er! You should do a "Hi! i'm new here thread" welcome to the madness over the street legal go-karts.

So i found where my coolant is leaking. stupid safety radiator cap! thankfully it's a cheap one. Will be fixed tomorrow.

Lol, I always get excited when I see anyone on the forum from New York, too. I then look up their location on Googlemaps, because I'm creepy like that, and I'm generally disappointed to find that they are quite a ways away from me. Such as the case with you, hah.

No offense to anyone that makes the "I'm new here" thread, but that's just not my style. I try to blend casually; anywhere I feel it's necessary, I tend to mention that I'm relatively new here. I feel a little self-centered announcing to a forum that I am blessing them with my e-presence. Yay, humility.

And thanks for the welcoming ! I do love that every time someone welcomes you, it's via "welcome to the madness;" it's like our own slogan.

Got the oil changed and drained and refilled the transaxel with syncromesh. Tried to change the front shocks and found out due to some rust and stripped bolts it was going to take more time then I had. Weekend project!

I started on my new fog / turn signal / and running light bucket.. Here's the first prototype. The bucket is going to be satin black and it sits in the stock spot of the turn signal of our cars.. I also bought some HIDs for my head lights and have the pigtails now for a plug n play hook up.. I picked the 3000k golden yellow. I figured it would look good (and different) with the white 55 watt fog light and amber running light... Oh the running light is 3 LEDs and the turn signal comes from the bottom of the fog light with LEDs too.. Hopefully it's be sweet.. so we'll see!

Today I made some progress on porting the heads and one of the exhaust manifolds. I had to stop on the heads when I ran out of lube, to keep the burr from getting clogged with aluminum.

Slapped on the smallest supercharger pulley I have, (good for about 12-13 lbs of boost) rolled the windows down, took the sunroof out, and went for a joyride. It is 80 degrees in Florida today.

I wanted some "pop" in the fronts so I'm installing a pair of Audi driving lamps. The lamps aren't mounted, but you get the idea where I'm headed.

You've got a 3800 S/C AND nice weather to enjoy it in? Go F*** yourself. Hard. Hahahaha! Just kidding man, though I am TOTALLY freaking jealous of both. Up here in Wisconsin, I have to keep cleaning snow off of the GT and feel horrible driving it in this icy salty crap.... Don't feel too bad for it though, it did this to itself. I was gonna buy a winter beater until it decided to blow it's 2.8, so the cash went to replacing the motor instead. This will be it's first and ONLY winter though. Next year I will be buying a winter beater nice and early. Ugh, just gotta keep getting it washed every week in the mean time. I always get the "Ultimate" wash and under body flush too. $12 a week now, or replacing rotted cradle and suspension parts later.

I used to live up in NW Indiana, snow isn't any fun. The salt eats the metal off the cars and the ice makes it almost impossible to drive in. I moved before I could drive, so I don't know the extent of it. I still think northern drivers have a little more experience in driving then southerns do.
