  1. Several years ago, Ford was sponsoring (along with AAA) a hands on Automotive competition. The finals were held at Bondurant school of driving at Firebird raceway. One year we were treated to a similar experience with a Pro driver and Ford Crown Vics, the next couple of years were hot laps on the racetrack in Mustangs. Lots of fun!
  2. Here is a pic of a 59 Chevy wagon, step looks similar. Paint color too.
  3. First impression when I saw this on FB was 1960's, based on the width of the car. That door handle looks like GM to me. The bumper steps mean it could have been a station wagon, but I never saw steps like those.
  4. Not sure why you would need antenna separation. You will only be transmitting on one at at a time (I ASSume). The antennas receive the signal passively, so being close to each other shouldn't matter. To be clear, I am NOT an expert or even close to one on this topic. I do remember from my CB radio days of the late 70's, that dual antenna's needed some room between them, but that was when they were transmitting from the same radio.
  5. My Yaesu has a removable faceplate, so I put the radio body under the drivers seat, Faceplate above the sunvisor. Ran the wires up the A pillar and hid them under the trim. Wired to the battery direct, w/fuse. Antenna mounted on the tire carrier.
  6. I'm having trouble viewing the video, I see one movement and then and the picture freezes. I hear the audio just fine. I do think that is excessive movement for that link. Bushing is probably gone since I didn't see the bolt move.
  7. Hard to tell, the video is too short. Sounds like a tie rod end popping. My suggestion is to put your hand on the outer tie rods, one at a time and feel for the clunk while someone turns the steering.
  8. I could be interested in 12/30 or 1/1. It's always good to start/end the year wheeling. (Yes, I know 12/31 is the end of the year. )
  9. I think you need to LEGO of your emotions.
  10. I have a yaesu 8800 in my TJ. I bought it because most of the people in the club I was in ran it. It was great that they could give me tech help,etc. I like that it has a removable face plate with remote mounting. The actual radio is under my seat, the faceplate and Mike are above the sunvisor. I like the radio, but it has way more bells and whistles than I need. My advice would be to go with a basic radio unless you expect to get an upper level ham radio license. 4x4ham.com is a sister club to this one. You might want to ask your question over there. Also, Dan, one of our members sells mike mounts and other goodies for radios. I forget his user name, I'm sure someone will chime in with it. Edit: JeepUnique is the name Dan uses on here.
  11. No pics of it, but it passed over us in the Kofas a few years back. Mark and Jake Engdahl were trying to talk to it on Ham. It was pretty obvious if you were looking for it. It went by really quick!
