1975 Plymouth Duster parted out and scrapped, meet it's replacement
Here is the new A-body.
I struggled with this decision for a long time. I don't like scrapping
cars, but when this one came up on eBay, my decision was made. I HAD to win
1973 Dodge Dart Sport.318 V8, torqueflite, 8-1/4 rear, power disc brakes,
power steering, air conditioning, bucket seats with console shifter, FE5
Bright Red. Plus full set of original Rallye wheels.
Most importantly, this one has none of the rot issues the other one had.
It's from dry Texas so the floors, trunk, everything else is great. No
vinyl top either.
The engine is blown so it'll get the 318/A904 salvaged from the other car
after I replace the valve seals and add the 4bbl carb and intake :-)
My brother also has a '73 Dart Sport except his is yellow w/black interior
and a 4spd.

Starting the Old Cold Forgotten Buick
Oh boy. At least seven attempts later...it finally started. It ran and
drove pretty good for a free car. The spark plugs came from the white car
(see my other videos). I'll need to get a battery and see if I can fix the
power steering leak.
Coldstart old start Dozer
Old Dozers are fun toys. It runs better now that we rebuilt the Carb. Tons

Replacing rear shocks on the 97 Riviera
The original rear air shocks went out my Riviera, they were leaking and the
air ride was not working anymore. I picked up a pair of Monroe shocks for
$69 and put them in. This is a real easy straight forward job that took
under an hour to do. If only everything was this easy to do on this car!
New project: 1997 Buick Riviera Supercharged
PIcked this one up off Craigslist for $400 plus $50 to deliver it. Car
runs and drives but has what sounds like rod knock. I still need to to
some diagnostic work, but that's what it sounds like to me, and the guy I
bought it from was a mechanic and thinks the same. The car is fully loaded
with what looks to be every option offered right down the traction control
and engine block heater. The car has just under 100k on it and it in
excellent shape in and out. The car has been sitting for a year or so and
looks it, but it will get washed when it gets warmer.
