Consumer Reports 2008 Bottom Line of Auto Companies (Part 1)
This video was put together for a friend with whom I agreed to give an
annual report from Consumer Reports every December on Auto Companies. CR
isn't 100% accurate, but they give you the general idea. Like the Chevy
truck in the background. That truck has been MUCH MORE RELIABLE than CR
said it would.
Based on the December 2008 Consumer Reports magazine, here are the results
for 2008. Also, here is the status of the big 3 domestic auto companies:
GM sales: -41% GM trucks: -39% GM cars: -44% Request from the $700 billion
bailout: $18 billion
Chrysler sales: -47%
Request from the $700 billion bailout: $11 billion
Ford sales: -30%
Request from the $700 billion bailout: $9 billion
However, Ford's sales have increased over the past two months, mainly
because of increasing sales of the F series trucks.
Hardbody Drift Build Pt.2
this is the rebirth of my truck, i had to change the entire rear suspension
because it wasnt to my liking, i kept the 3 link, but changed the pan hard
rod, coil overs, geometry, and added a ton of bracing. so far i love it!!
Pt.3 will be the front coilover and rack&pinion install and final fabwork
on the truck. thanks for watching.
P.S. I am looking for any sponsors. my truck goes to alot of events and
tracks and is seen by alot of people. i would also be willing to go to more
events than usual if needed. im in college so my money and progress are
wearing thin. thank you.
song is world goes round by slightly stoopid.
VG30 conversion my 1980 720 4x4
Saw several VG30 conversions, mostly dimer'z I havent seen another 720
swap. I did this in 1992 while still working at M & G Z cars, before my
dealership jaunts, lol.
truck originally had an L20B. I inherited the truck in 1985 from one of our
customers after they overheated it and bent #3 conn-rod.
Engine conversion is Calif. smog legal, BAR referee label.
I was a Nissan technician for some time & a licensed smog-tech as well.
I repaired the L20B with spare parts from my 510 wagon and ran it for a
I started four wheeling with all my Toyota friends, then in 1987 I
performed a custom SAS swap, I soon found the need for EFI !!!
after my 1st Sledgehammer run with Marlin in 1994 I ditched the stock
T/case and with some machine shop assistance made a trans-adapter & coupler
and have been running dual Toyota T/case's & a Marlin crawler, I recently
installed an MC07 & 23 spline input in the rear case.
I used parts from a 280Z, 280ZX, Pulsar, NX, Max, D21, pathfinder &
Stanza wagon to complete the project. I wanted to keep fabrication to a
minimum using factory parts wherever I could.
lots of little brackets, clips and clamps that go unnoticed but help it
tidy under the hood.
In 2002 I installed a stock 1995 Altima Throttle body onto the stock 300ZX
intake for Gob's more mid-range torque.
future mod's include swapping everything over into a used king-cab and
possibly moving the engine back a few inches with 200SX VG30 intake & Exhaust manifolds.
lengthen the front of the frame, this time an additional 10 " for longer
front leaf springs and to put the oil pan sump in the rear ( This pan &
pick up are currently up front )
truck had about 120K on it in 1992 before the swap, I now have 445,190 K on
it and still going strong with the engine rolling over 300K on my rebuild
( my little green energizer bunny, LMAO)
starting to get a little HLA clatter now at idle.............and I should
have washed it off before shooting this, .....sorry.
PS: there are other vid's of the truck, this one is just the VG30. enjoy
