    I had my Gen rebuilt and replaced the V/R.
    I only had to polarize the V/R.

    Iwas reading this stuff and remembered the time i was pulled up in Sydney , Australia where i live for speeding,the female cop looked inside my impala and wanted to put a defect on it because fuel gauge said gasoline and she believed it should only run on petrol,she was told by older male officer to go back and sit in cop car!!!:confused:

    The number one question I get, even before "Is this your husband's/boyfriend's car?" is definitely "When are you going to put the rest of the chrome on it?" Sorry, I'm not. This usually results in an argument over why it would look better with the chrome and oh, while I'm at it, I should put the Belair trim on it too. She's not a Belair, sorry, never will be.

    so i was walken back to my car this summer at one of the local shows, and these two guys were standen next to it.

    "that nova has a ding in the door and i bet the uni-body is all rotted, gm's are total shit boxes i dont care what people say. When did they make a malibu nova? I dont know its a shit box."

    I walked over and pointed out that badge to the left said chevelle, not nova, that yes it has an actual frame, and no its not a shit box your just an ass hole, all the guys behind my car that heard the whole thing just laughed.

    Last August I was outside of the Holiday Inn in Joplin, getting ready to drive over to Mokan Dragways for the HAMB drags. Iwas visiting with another hot rodder about my 31 coupe, when a guy walks over, tells me he likes my car, and then proceeds to blabber on and on about his 2009 Camaro SS. I guess he thought he could make a connection with us that way. I tried to be polite. I nodded my head in response to what he was saying, then directed my attention back to the guy I'd been talking to. Thankfully, Camaro boy went away.

    I had a guy standing by my car talking to people about it, like it was his car ! I asked him a few questions then got in and drove away. Also found two old ladies sitting in it eating ice cream. They had one just like it years ago, I didnt really care that they sat in my car but I think they should have asked first.

    I have read this for some time, seems like you would just get a honda and not be faced with all those folks looking at whatever car you have. did you not build it to be noticed????? everyone isnt the expert that all of us are .................

    My hiboy sedan is grey primer/sealer. I constantly get the 'what color you gonna paint it?' So I tell them 'primer grey'. 'That don't make any sense, how you gonna tell it's painted?' Gee, I just don't know...

    Look at my avatar.
    It´s a cut down Fordor, with at Simca grill trim welded on the back of the cab.
    Once on a Danish message board I spun a tale.;)
    I wrote that it´s a ´32 Holden, that my uncle unearthed "Down under" as he was digging for Opals, in a abandoned opalmine.
    Also told that the first ower was found as a skeleton, behind the wheel, still clinching a bottle of moonshine.
    Never should have done that :)

    It´s now verified that this is the only real Holden 1932 i Denmark :eek:

  20. 18 years of owning a 70 Challenger, there wasn't a week where someone didn't say "nice Camaro". I just got to where my reply was "don't be an idiot"....

    Pretty funny. Now can you convince them that they all came from the factory with split bones? ;)

    Some guy and his buddy were trying to figure out what kind of wheels I had on my car, his buddy says "I can't read what they are the guy put his center caps on upside down". I didn't think anyone was that stupid.

    "You must have a Ford in that; Chevy never did make an inline six..." this from a local Chevy "expert" mechanic.

    Nothing mysterious.

    "The rod to stroke ratio turned out to be really bad for durability (the cylinder walls wore out very quickly). Most (if not all) Chryco 500 owners had the rotating assembly changed over to 440 parts under a warranty recall back in the day. Thats why you see so many Coronet 500's with 440's in them."

    I prefer to add to their stupidity. Gives the next guy they talk to something to laugh at them for.

    I had driven my '32 5 window from Orlando to Pigeon Forge and on the way back I was dog tired and gassing up somewhere in southern Georgia when two guys in a pickup truck pull alongside. The driver says "what yearzit!" I say "its a '32" and he says "naw, it's a '36. Had one just like it." Gotta love the experts.
    Another occasion I was riding in a buddies Chopped shoebox. Gassing up (again) and an old lady comes out of the station, passes by the car and remarks "gee, you forget how little the windows were in those cars."
  29. I have the same problem and it does not help that I have a 50 merc dash in it.Two of my other favorites are They did not make that and That will never work.
