It's probably something goofy, like the driver was born in Detroit.

My poor rusty baby has gotten worse

I was inspecting the passenger fender on the box, and a big chunk of the rusty upper fender just came off. I found out why too: there was a big ol' piece of mesh and a bunch of bondo holding the whole thing together. At this point I don't have much to lose by just pounding out all the loose rust and seeing what I'm left with...and then trying to construct a new fender.

Even though it's still Expensive, I had a "Gas win!" tonight:
two stations were $3.70, drove about 1/2 mile, station was $3.72, went about a mile more in the other direction, station had gas for $3.75... don't know why, but drove towards a station that i never go to....station had changed! from Holiday, to SA. gas was $3.64!
YESSS. I got some gas there.
get this a station about 3 miles away, had gas for $3.90... I saved 26 cents!
feeling good!

please help an old member! my exhaust is rusting out! I don't have money to replace it, so I'd like to just remove everything after the cats. (no muffler, or tailpipe) I cannot do the work myself and the damned shops all say it's illegal for them to remove the muffler, although since the muffler has holes in it and the connections are rusted thru, the sound won't be all that different, once removed. I'd like to find someone who isn't bound by legalities of the state and who can just cut off the muffler and existing tailpipe.
any help for this old member?

Thats a long drive and would cost u some gas money to drive it.
Plus we would have to do it on the weekend.

You just want to cut out the muffler and tail pipe??

In all honesty i would do it...but im sure u can buy a $20 angle grinder and put a cutoff wheel on it and jusy cut everything out...or are you physically unable to do it??

Its up to you tho.

Plus if you really need a muffler, check out a junkyard....
Last case scenario i could sell u the one off my white ranger cheap cheap...

Ps...i have a softball game soon so i wont reply til later.

Machine: i think we should have everyone who is interested in a meet, post the weekends that they are available. Then everyone can see what weekend works best for them. Just a thought.

Also if you want help fixing your exhause, i got a friends shop down here in jordan. They do custom exhaust for a reasonable price. Or i got a sawzall n acess to a welder. We can lop that thing off n tack on the turn down. But it would definetly have to be a weekend. But thats just an idea...
