'70's era Fords were notorious for rusting out prematurely. I heard they were using badly recycled steel.

DeanT - Posted - 12/28/2015:  17:00:15


The truck I never should have sold, was a 77 Ford. The odometer stopped working somewhere past 200K. Straight 6, three on the tree. I even put zerts on the king-pins and they never wore out. No rust, solid as a rock. Non power brakes, man it was a great workout to drive. I let it go in the late 90's for $500. It would get $5000 easily these days. If I knew then, what I do now, I'd still be driving it. Our winters are really mild, and if they do lay down stuff on the roads, it's just sand.

Newer. Ads are certainly much better from a corrosion perspective. 

DeanT - Posted - 12/29/2015:  06:22:04


I could look through the floor and see the road in my old VW... when I lived in Michigan

dat - Posted - 12/29/2015:  13:14:35


I had a '70 F100 sport custom, baby blue, 4 speed, 302 windsor  great little truck, then a 72 F250 with a 390 and an automatic.   I wish I still had the 70 model, not for any collector value, it was just a good truck

DeanT - Posted - 12/29/2015:  13:48:57


I got my "loaner" car today from my friend. A 95 Honda Civic. Cool little car. Um... it doesn't have a muffler... he said it fell off a couple years agocheeky Runs great!

OM45GE - Posted - 12/29/2015:  13:58:39


I wonder how much a muffler costs for that car.  

dat - Posted - 12/29/2015:  15:14:47


glass packs tongue     I used to like them loud, now quiet is good      a muffler shouldn't be more than about 50 to 75 bucks

DeanT - Posted - 12/29/2015:  17:14:24


I'll find out tomorrow. I'm having the tires balanced first thing, If it's not too much, I'll get a muffler for it. Least I can do for the use of the car. Cool little car. 

OM45GE - Posted - 12/29/2015:  18:56:57


Honda makes some incredible motors.  From their one lung power products engines to the incredible V-12 F1 screamers in the 1960's. 

DeanT - Posted - 12/30/2015:  04:43:29


I'm holding out hope he might give me the car or sell it to me cheap. it's spunkier than my old car... with 100K more miles on it. It's also a stick, and I've always preferred that over automatic

OM45GE - Posted - 12/30/2015:  05:06:16


I prefer manual transmissions too - unless I'm in a traffic jam. 

dat - Posted - 12/30/2015:  05:50:28


I had a 79 honda civic hatchback, ugliest brown car ever, but it got 35 mpg with me driving the dog out of it, at the same time I had a 78 K5 blazer with 35 inch tires, 350 bored 30 over, 202 heads, good low end cam, it got about 7 mpg no matter how you drove it.  I drove the blazer mostly and the car on weekend road trips and loaned it out to friends for trips.     I wish I still had that little car

OM45GE - Posted - 12/30/2015:  14:19:47


I had a 1991 Honda CRX Si. Two seater fastback pocket rocket. It would get 35 to 40 mpg with me driving experience it like I stole it and was a blast to drive. Tin worm got it. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/30/2015:  15:50:38


I've owned a few furrin cars- Sunbeam, VW, Renault, Datsun, Honda, Dodge Colt (Mitsibushi) ,Mazda, Hyundai, most of'em well used and on their last legs, except the Hyundai I still have.

DeanT - Posted - 12/30/2015:  18:30:13


Good lord... they wanted $325 for a muffler job! A little loud is ok...

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/30/2015:  19:27:42


Nowadays that sounds about right - yeah, kinda steep. Maybe you can find a good cheap one at the local wrecking yard.

dmiller - Posted - 12/30/2015:  20:30:35


Can you get by without driving with a muffler??  Up here you'd get a hefty fine or at least a warning ticket once the police heard you driving.  I miss the "old days" of mufflers with clamps and hangers.  Now days everything is welded together.

OM45GE - Posted - 12/31/2015:  03:52:47


Be grateful it's not the catalytic converter. $$$$$

dat - Posted - 12/31/2015:  05:50:29


true cat's cost some dollars, cheap way is probably 5 or 600 , factory probably 1200

DeanT - Posted - 12/31/2015:  06:05:19


It's not any louder than the kids and their lowrider hot rods. I went past a cop running radar yesterday and didn't even get a second look

OM45GE - Posted - 12/31/2015:  06:05:28


I had a BMW M3 that the cat failed on. The part was almost $3,500 through the dealer. I'm friends with the service manager and he advised buying aftermarket from a reputable BMW specialty firm for about $1,200 which he installed. So far, so good until three in a row failed in less than 1,000 miles each. They made good on them but it was a major pain in the ass. Finally they recommended a high performance "racing" converter for $1,900 which solved the problem. I wish I had just ponied up for the factory unit. 

dat - Posted - 12/31/2015:  10:24:27


ouch, that's expensive either way you go

OM45GE - Posted - 12/31/2015:  11:57:28


Yeah, that was a big ouch. On the other hand, the car was 12 years old with 160,000 miles on it so it didn't owe me anything. 

dat - Posted - 12/31/2015:  13:03:36


like my truck, 12 years old and 230 K if it doesn't start the next time I turn the key, I sure can't complain

DeanT - Posted - 12/31/2015:  15:51:21


My old Ford wagon was 18 years old. It went to the auction lot today. I got $300 for it... blowing antifreeze, grinding, and knocking like it was about to blow a rod. with my insurance and tag refunds,  made $522.50 on the day. Now if I can just sweet talk my friends into selling me the old Honda...

OM45GE - Posted - 12/31/2015:  16:22:14


Good deal. 

DeanT - Posted - 01/02/2016:  06:19:30


Hard to believe that a 16 year old teenager was born after Y2K

OM45GE - Posted - 01/03/2016:  10:25:39


I know, Ethan was born almost 12 months in.

I would've celebrated my 40th wedding anniversary 1 week ago (12/27/75).  It lasted 10 years, but the next 30 years just flew by and left me wondering where they went.

OM45GE - Posted - 01/03/2016:  12:45:36


It just flies by. 

dmiller - Posted - 01/03/2016:  13:09:10


Time flies like the wind.

Fruit flies like bananas.

OM45GE - Posted - 01/04/2016:  13:06:25


That's sort of my plan too.

OM45GE - Posted - 01/05/2016:  08:45:22


I used to joke that my ship came in but turned out to be a barge filled with hazardous materials. Then I divorced her. 

dat - Posted - 01/05/2016:  10:00:01


guess we could have been on the SS Minnow

DeanT - Posted - 01/05/2016:  10:39:07


I've had three barges full of hazardous materials
