I don't know the answer but it does not look like Bob to me.

If you round it off you can more than likely use a socket like the ones that are used for taking off locking lug nuts when you don't have the key.. I have 2 different sets of them and they work very well. The harder you turn them the more they dig in.

THINKWORK Impact Bolt & Nut Remover Set, 13+1 Pieces Bolt Extractor Tool Set, Stripped Lug Nut Remover, Extraction Socket Set for Removing Damaged, Frozen, Rusted, Rounded-Off Bolts, Nuts & Screws https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0869BR8MG/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_navT_g_55AB5ASSR1FZF9WKTQKE

 They sell them at Harbor freight and most automotive parts places.

If you only need to tow something a couple of times a year then rent a truck and trailer and you will be tens of thousands of dollars ahead in the in the end.

I do spend about twice as much money per month on coffee as I do on gas. Got to help keep people employed. I tipped $10 to all 25 workers at my Peets coffee place as a thank you for working through the pandemic and not sitting on there Azz taking the government hand out.

My Shrink said she couldn't find anything wrong with me and I thought I was messed up so I guess that everyone is just as messed making most of us normal. At least I learned how to play chess while seeing her 😉

Kevin was not the driver:

Hart was one of three people involved in a crash in Calabasas, California, last month.

According to a California Highway Patrol incident report obtained by CNN, Hart and the driver, Jared Black, sustained back injuries and were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment

Maybe your memory is what went off the road also 🤔

1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: Need help rebuilding GT350 engine
« on: October 16, 2021, 07:54:01 PM »
A few more questions regarding the motor rebuild
1. Can anyone give me a good source piston rings and possibly a new piston as replacement for the original? Trying to avoid chinese parts.

When it comes to pistons talk to the piston Guru,  Randy AKA gt350hr as he has been in the piston business for many years.

They shot 2 films in front of our house In the 1990s. One of them was about the Oakland hills fire that happened in 1991 and part of the location was directly across the street from our house on a slight hill. Our house was going to be in the background of some of the shots and they had us sign a paper saying we were OK with that and they were supposed to send us a check for $1 which I was going to frame but we never did get it . It stared Lavar Burton and one day I walked over to where they were shooting from and I got a couple of pictures of him and his directors chair. The other film was True Crime with Clint Eastwood.. I came home and part of the street was blocked off and there were police cars everywhere and a helicopter overhead. They were shooting a scene of him driving up-and-down the road in front of our house and in between shots one time I ran out and pulled a couple of the cars out onto the street to see if they would make it into the movie which they did not because they digitally altered just about everything from that scene. They didn't ask us to us sign any release forms for that 1 though. One interesting thing is that the Chase vehicle with the camera on it was a mid eighties Mustang with a Chevy engine in it and the cameraman sat just above and outside the front left tire area.. The car was left parked in the hills for a while and 1 day I said if they don't come and get this I'm going to get a trailer and take the damn thing But the next day they came and got it.  I had an aunt lose her house in the hills fire and just recently a nephew that lost his house in another one of the fires we had out here.

Not much of a Chase. Is barely going faster than the flow of traffic most of the time. Back in the late 70's to early eighties I chased a Porsche 911 around the San Francisco waterfront for about 10 minutes after he ran a red light and almost broadsided my wife and I in her 280Z but luckily I saw him go through the light, nailed the brakes and he just missed us by about a foot going past the front of the car.  I chased him with the intention of spinning him out but he had the better faster car but I was a better driver and could keep up with him. My wife was holding on for dear life and screaming and his female passenger was doing the same so after 10 minutes I finally let them go.
