    Self-driving Tesla crashes and burns for hours

    I absolutely understand those concerns, and I'm sure our concerns are based largely in our professions. I can tell you as a member of the LAFD I have yet to see anyone injured in a Tesla. I have seen one catch fire, and it took a long time to breach the occupant area. That being said I have...

    Self-driving Tesla crashes and burns for hours

    When all else fails, copious amounts of water is always the answer. None of us carry enough powder or specialty foam to address that issue. Their was a tesla crash in the bay area, and the car kept re-igniting for days. I believe they eventually had to submerge the car in water at the...

    TCM 1200 Hard Backfire

    You shouldn't have to crack the throttle to start that motor. There are a bunch of performance motors with exhaust that dumps below the water. I'm sure Teague and Salvage will get it sorted out

    Who owns a pre-'90 car?

    Thanks, it's my baby. Full Griggs suspension and brakes, 331 and 2900lb curb weight makes it a blast to drive

    Who owns a pre-'90 car?

    All three are beautiful, but I bet the 73 is a blast. What motor?

    Avila Beach Stay Recommendations

    The wife and I stay at the Avilla village inn. Its a bit of walk to downtown Avilla, but we like the exercise and the hotel is nice and quiet.

    Brain trust....How to troubleshoot no spark on a 6AL MSD system

    They are prone to failure and probably don't offer much upside in your application.

    Water in cylinders after intake swap?

    What are the specs on the cam? Reversion can be a big issue. When we built our motor I spoke to the guy at Lightning headers and he said as cubic inches increase duration needs to decrease. I'm sure someone like Barry would know a lot more

    WTB VW bug motor

    Thank you for all the replies. This car is a nice driver, but not perfect. It's been sitting in storage for 20yrs so I'm currently making it road worthy and doing small updates. I'll make some calls this week to local shops and see what my options are with my current motor, or a new build.

    WTB VW bug motor

    They pop up but seem to be too far away, or sell too quickly. One option is to buy an older sandrail with a decent motor, but then you have to deal with selling the rail

    WTB VW bug motor

    Kind of a long shot, but I've been looking for a nice motor for my 66 bug. Something with 100-150hp naturally aspirated. I figure one of you might have something sitting in the garage. Currenrly has a mild 1776 with dual Dellartos, but I need more power!
