It is all because NASCAR was going to have the general lee run a few laps before a race, and some group complained about the flag. Nascar had to cancel the laps, and the flag has never been prominent since. » 6/11/14 7:45pm 6/11/14 7:45pm

My father's 2008 cobalt has done very well. It has gone through 180,000 miles on the first clutch, and nothing has ever really been a hassle. The only thing he needed to replace was the throttle position sensor on the pedal. I am not surprised people would re-buy gm, as the cobalt really never gave a lot of people… » 6/05/14 12:15pm 6/05/14 12:15pm

Restoration prospect 5: Going Wild

Well, this one seems like a soild deal. Call me stupid, but I cannot tell if it is the four door or the two door. Likewise, the thing seems massive, and I don't know if it is wider than my truck, meaning it couldn't fit in my "work bay". With that in mind, it does seem solid, and would be on my list if a true two… » 5/18/14 12:15pm 5/18/14 12:15pm

Restoration Prospect 4: Smoking deal?

Well, I have been around long enough to see the insane prices of jeeps. This one seems very reasonable. However, the front bumper is most likely welded on, it needs a hub (would replace both with warn anyway), and the pictures seem to be a little out of date. However, the price is right, even with a four cylinder, and… » 5/18/14 11:45am 5/18/14 11:45am

Restoration Prospect 3: Another 4 door; Valiant

Well, four doors seem like a good way to learn basics and not really lose anything if a problem arises. I think I could learn a lot from this by swapping in a used muncie stone crusher, or something of that nature (possibly a saginaw, because price). Anywho, it is a seemingly very solid car, and I bet that I cannot go… » 5/18/14 11:20am 5/18/14 11:20am

Restoration Prospect 2: Falcon couple

Well, the second falcon group is actually a great buy. For a grand, I could get a four door sled that runs, and a two door that could be fixed up. However, I would most likely need to assess, and sell off parts from most likely the coupe, or sell it for about 500 dollars. That being said, I could have a 500 dollar… » 5/18/14 10:00am 5/18/14 10:00am
