Car pics too cool not to share

Exceeds reality. Bummer. Now I'm gonna go join a Hyundai forum. I'm that bummed out... :cry: Thanks, buddy.

:LOL:

In an attempt to talk a friend off the ledge , I present this Ford 300 with a blower. Probably still not wheel stander material but I can't stand to be responsible for you going to the Dark side of a Kimchi cruiser . :D
 
Those exterior shots almost look like a model car someone built. Something about those tail lights looks off/funky (especially the backup lights). The interior and engine pics look legit, though. Regardless, it's a nice looking car.

I thought it looked weird myself , but I guess we are use to seeing Impalas and not the Biscayne. here are rear shots of both models .

"Sneak peak of a new arrival! Stay tuned."

They haven't said what year it is...yet.

And Does anyone know if this interior is original?

I'll ad any info they share

I wonder what the mileage is and how much they're going to ask for it. I've passed on a couple different poorly restored full sized Cherokee/Wagoneers in the $10,000+ price range when I thought I could afford one.

They're asking $78,000, according to this ad in Hemmings. It's a 1977, apparently. I think you should buy it. We always support other people spending their own money! ;)

The Wheelie​

Via - Autowise
Another fun behind the scenes fact is that the wheelie Dom does to begin the race at the end of the movie also wasn't real. It seems obvious when you watch it because not only does he smoke the tires but he also gets extreme air. Those two things aren't possible at the same time since a wheelie is a demonstration of extreme power mated to exceptional traction; the opposite of what causes smoky burnouts.


The film crew actually added hydraulic wheelie bars to the charger that pointed in the wrong direction and then used them to raise the front of the vehicle up at the start of the race.

With the way the ass of the Charger squatted and then hopped back up, it was pretty obvious that there was something going on. Never have seen a wheelie before where the car behaved like that. Makes for good viewing, however. ;)

Yeah, physics is a thing

The wheels look like they're 17" maybe... That definitely throws off the look for me.

I found a Mecums 2012 listing for that car. It claims to be a "numbers" car. :oops: A 427 4-speed Biscayne with factory air, that's a rare, maybe one-of-one car. I love it. Also, it says the wheels are 18". Personally, I like them. These cars are big enough to pull off a 17-18" wheel and look right.

Never said I didn't like it. I meant it just didn't have that 100% factory look.
 
Here's another abandoned car in a local bad neighborhood. It's kind of amazing how many cars from the '50s and '60s are still sitting around.

Probably not - but do keep in mind: No computers, no electronics. That boosts the value considerably.

I don't think that's an accurate attribution. I agree that minimal electronics does provide appeal for some, I don't think it "boost the value considerably". If it did, there would be no market for the aftermarket companies making EFI conversions, modern computer controlled drivetrain swaps etc. That's a big industry. I'd say over 1/2 of the customer cars that my friends are turning out have some type of electronic controls now, mostly EFI and LS+4L60E trans. People running carbs are becoming less common, and people running points are almost non-existent. When it comes up, and I mention I'm still running points in my Chrysler, the first thing that people say is "why?"

Swapping out points on the side of the road is a breeze, that's why. Easy to keep a spare set in the glovebox, too. Just my opinion, of course.

Yes and no. The difference is the aftermarket stuff - and I've used enough of it myself over the years - is user installed, thus user maintainable. It usually is affordable, and well designed and easy to deal with - and can be swapped out or bypassed if necessary - which usually isn't the case with OEM. I'm talking more about all the electronic bullshit we're stuck with: screens, nanny "driver assist" crap, etc, etc. I'm seeing what I call "Pre-iPhone" vehicles (not necessarily pre-dating the iPhone itself, but meaning no screens, no nanny bullshit, etc) are shooting up in price because a significant portion of the population either doesn't want the crap, or is at least ambivalent about it.

FI is a good thing, and doesn't necessarily need electronics, but I detest points as much as the next guy.

:LOL: You're so weird about vehicle electronics. Personally, I don't mind points, at least not on classic rides that are driven for fun. I know how to work with them and generally trust them. Actually, I can't think of a single time being left stranded due to points. I've had plenty of fuel issues, starter issues, wiring issues, a failed pertronix unit, a spun bearing and even a push rod that launched through a valve cover, but not an issue with a points setup.
