The Lounge / Re: Clean electric vehicles? I think not.
« on: August 06, 2020, 07:36:20 AM »
I saw a Tesla with a vanity plate CLNAIR the other day.  I wanted to stop and thank the guy.  Having grown up in what was then coal country, I sure appreciate all of the coal burned to make his electricity.

(Now in oil country, but still a fan of clean use of abundant coal.)

Agree!  Coal creates lots of American jobs and is abundant.  Further, the only/best clean use of this fuel is a large central power station that can justify the pollution controls.  This resource, and the jobs and lives it supports, is going to waste due to the current passion for "alternative energy".

Are '67 pumps excluded?

I don't have the parts to rebuild the early pumps with the 4 bolt hub.  If your car has the 3 bolt hub style pump, then I can rebuild it.

The 4 bolt hub pumps are MUCH different internally, not functionally but in terms of details and parts used.

I met him at Elkhart Lake and he was an enthusiastic guy who had driven there from the Chicago area!  Very sorry to hear this news.

Just saw this posted on Facebook;

Marty McIntosh from Burnsville NC has been reported to the State Troopers for Fraud and Title Jumping.
I hope he likes Prison.

The guy who has this car got it for the 428 engine.  He will remove the 428 and take it apart so access won't be an issue.  He is just asking if the smog stuff is worth enough $$ to be worth bothering to carefully remove and attempt to sell.  I don't know anything about smog details on cars earlier than 1968 model year.  That is why I am asking questions in his behalf.  I thought some or all of these components might help someone out who has a '67 GT500.

The PS definitely has the check valve at the front and a short hose to the smog pump.  I have a poor picture of the DS and it looks to me like the metal tube passes across the front like a CJ tube but lower down and I am guessing the check valve is also on the front (like a CJ) closer to the pump.  ???

Appeals / 67 GT500 Smog - Question
« on: March 21, 2020, 08:31:40 AM »
I have been contacted by a gentleman from the FE Forum who has the complete original smog setup on a '66 Mercury 428 car. Is any of this appropriate for a '67 GT500 (or other)?  It has the check valves at the front of the tube on both sides (or maybe not - see added photo) and the pump is mounted above the alternator.  Here are some pictures.

This rattle can primer has a smooth eggshell sheen and looks great in this application IMO.  Unlike most red primers that are fuzzy/porous looking.

"Orange Blossom Special" I think this is at Sebring 19?? looks like the Quintana '68 in the background. I believe there was a '69 or

'70 version of this car "Orange Blossom"  as well ?

Found it, it's a '70 Boss 9, was this one run in period, or is a more current build ?


I don't think that is Sebring.

70 B9 Boss 9 Orange Blossom is alive and well and raced in early mid 1970ís 12 hours of Sebring and 24 of Daytona if memory serves.
Have seen in the flesh.

I'm guessing Dana & Frank bought it!

They worked pretty hard on stage to get the bid to $3.5M (without success) which makes me doubt that this is true.

The Lounge / Re: Explorinv retirement locations
« on: January 03, 2020, 09:42:10 AM »
I think NC has become "non-competitive" in the market of retirement relocations.  TN has no sales tax.  GA gives significant property tax breaks to the retired (varies by County I think).  I am not familiar with SC so won't comment.

NC has state income tax, charges annual tax on personal property (cars, etc.) and does not offer any Homestead Exemption.  Beautiful place though - I live West of Asheville in the summer and it is a great place to be.  I am sure you could duplicate it in TN or GA though.
