    Mugs

    My last post of my mug mentions it was over 3 years well here I am updating it again and yes it is another 3 years. Same girlfriend Christine.
  4. Original post was deleted by accident so a new one is started. Repost your wheel and tire combo here so we can have the list again of what fits our cars. List wheel size with back spacing, tire size, any quarter panel trimming needed, spacers if used, airshocks if needed, spring spacers, wheel tub modifications, etc... Also add pictures so we can get see how they look. 😎 Example: 15x7"wheels with 4" of back spacing front. 15x8" wheels with 4 1/2" of back spacing rear. 255/60/15 front tires. 265/60/15 rear tires.

    Look good on your car. Are they steel or aluminum?

    Happy Easter

    Happy Easter!!!
  7. Sad to hear you have so many health issues and the fact they are ongoing to make you have to sell something that has meant so much to you. I always say I would never sell mine ever but in reality when it becomes necessary to do so I would do the same. Hope your car goes to someone who will take care of it like you did. As much as I have my Monte modified (as I do all my stuff) and if I was to buy your car I would not change a thing keeping it original as you did.

    2019 Detroit Autorama

    Pretty cool. Your niece's hair matches her car. We used to have the Autrama but they changed it to The Power Piston Show which is coming this weekend here, I definitely will be going. The show here is so large now (which is great) you have a hard time seeing everything if you don't spend hours and hours there.

    Going Under The Knife

    Scary part is over. 😎
  10. Forgot to mention that is a C5 emblem (5th generation corvette) on that rear bracket, not sure what is signifies. The hood vents I would like to see in person before I could comment on them..
  11. I wanna say that is an elaborate bracket under the rear bumper to hold the fuel pump, you can see the two bolts where the pump is located. That is a sumped gas tank, I have one similiar to it. As far as the dash covered in gauges...yeah, that is a bit much going on there. Looks like a nice car though.

    Hotel hallways at the meets

    Yeah, that floor is weird. Even worse would be if they put that on a cruise ship...the line for nausea pills would quadruple 😁

    Enclosed car hauler size

    Joe, getting one with an extended tongue helps so you can turn an angle better without hitting the trailer, also so you can mount the weight distribution brackets to it easily and use the install bar to quickly connect the bars/springs. Another thing I did not get...my brackets are hidden under the v-nose and to mount the spring/bars up I have to jack the tongue as high as it will go to hook the chain then lower it back down. Not too hard but takes probably 5 times longer. As far as the escape door I see you mention you will just winch it in and out...but there are times when you will find yourself needing to get something out of the car and squeezing in and out gets old. I do tend to winch my car in all the time but jumping in and driving it out is so much easier. Don't need a spotter when backing up, just keep the wheel straight.

    Enclosed car hauler size

    Also make sure you get 5,500 lb. axles (11,000lb. combined). Anybody here have torsion suspension? I have leaf springs on mine and have read up on the pros and cons of each. I might be getting another trailer built this spring so any insight on this would help the original poster and me as well.

    Enclosed car hauler size

    Personally I would not get one smaller than 24 foot. My 24ft. with a v-nose has the perfect amount of space, if I lost 4 feet that would be drastic. My winch is mounted in the point of the v-nose well out of the way. At the very least make sure your trailer has a beaver tail...I had my whole trailer custom built and the lousy sales guy did not mention it, he also talked me out of an escape door...makes me want to go back and punch him in the face right now, lol.
