    GT350 in the winter

    Anyone running their 350 in the winter with winter wheels/tires? If so, what's your setup and does it work worth a shit in light snow, slush, frozen roads? Thinking of picking up a '19 ruby red and driving it all year in Wisconsin. Why? Because I'm not going to live forever. Squeezed out with...

    Crank Position Sensor question

    Does the crank position sensor penatrate the block and could oil leak through this thing? I'm asking because I have a rather tiny oil leak with fresh oil appearing just below the crank position sensor and dripping on a wire bracket and running down some flex loom. The crank angle plug is a...

    Warped Headliner

    Well, I'm finally thinking about replacing or repairing my headliner. It apparently warped during its previous life in Phoenix. I'm thinking the 120+ degree days did it. The front middle hangs down by maybe an inch as compared to the edges. Is this repairable or should I just get a new one...

    Need input: $1500 worth of upgrades

    I've got about $1500 to spend on upgrades to the Cobra. This is not a daily driver but is more of a weekend toy to take through the mountains or out to the track. I'm not interested in power adders as this car has plenty of power to get me into trouble on the corners. And besides, engines are...

    Chrysler, R.I.P.

    A good article about the eventual death of an American icon. It also alludes to the death of GM. The big three really missed the boat.
