Eventually. I've got my own turmoil going on at the moment.

Hope all is relatively okay, Moby.




I had a crappy old 1/3 can of Krylon that I was sick of looking at, so I did this.





Was gonna bumper tuck, but this is by far the rustiest Panther I’ve ever seen and tucking would just make it easier for people to see how bad it is.

Unless that car has deteriorated significantly, I doubt it!

While I have your attention, what does the dealer do with recalled steering shafts that are still functional? I like to have one on hand just in case I buy a $600 car. I just used my last one, which was given to me by pantera77 and was in my inventory for damn near 3 years...

But I’d say it was time:



Believe it or not, this isn’t even the worst one I’ve ever seen...but it’s way worse than the one that failed on my old 2004 MGM.

Yes, the Beast has deteriorated quite a bit laugh . The only thing holding the rocker moldings on is static cling, the trunk floor's beginning to look very suspect, there's considerable bubbling below the gas door on the left quarter and around the wheel opening on the left, and there's a pretty good sized hole in the driver's footwell. One more winter's going to be about it for this car I'm afraid. One has to remember that it DID come from the Brine Capital of Ohio, the city of Independence, and they put that evil stuff down any time it gets below 70F laugh . Mechanically it's still pretty much bulletproof.

I really like putting shiny brand new parts on rusty dusty crappy cars.




Low voltage issue FIXED!

I had mine checked on the 2011 and supposedly the steering was fine and not rusted.

P71 price, P71 look.



I actually like how the 235/55/17 snow tires fill the wheel wells better. The 16s probably aren't going back on.

Been thinking about just covering the entire car in bumper stickers. It'd cover the rust nicely. laugh

Pretty sure manifold walls are supposed to be thicker than tailpipes.
