As if I didn't have ENOUGH things in my life falling apart (love life, my Buick, my refrigerator), apparently the car I'm borrowing from Mom until I can get my Buick fixed has some sort of major problem! THe good news is that it doesn't appear to be coolant from the heater core, but is "just" outside rain that has somehow gained entrance to the cabin. O.o

1974 CORVETTE HEATER CORE REPLACEMENT NON AC
Here we are replacing the heater core on our 1974 Corvette. This is a non AC version. Everyone told me that you can only replace the heater core from inside the car and the Dash and other parts must come out causing this to be a 6-8 hour or more job. This is typical with most cars as it is true, the Dash must come out along with many other parts making it not a fun job at all !! But.. They were all wrong !! The Heater Core comes out from the engine side making replacement a snap!! It took us an hour maybe and that was only because I wanted to replace the Heater Hoses and clamps as well. I hope this video helps someone as I could not find anything about heater core replacement for this particular car. So.. Here it is !! Again.. I hope this video helps .. Enjoy..
2011 Honda CR-V Moonroof Leak
DON'T BUY A HONDA WITH A MOONROOF/SUNROOF!!! This is my 2011 Honda CR-V leaking water into the cabin of the vehicle through the moonroof. I first noticed it when I went through a car wash. Water droplets hit me in the eye and hit the navigation screen. I thought it was strange, so I took it into the McConnell Honda dealership in Montgomery, AL. They told me they couldn't reproduce the problem, and sent me on my way. It happened again in the carwash, AND while I was driving down the interstate in heavy rain. This is unacceptable. I again took it to the dealership, and they again "couldn't replicate the problem." I was getting pretty irritated at this point, so I took my camera outside, turned on the water hose, and sprayed the moonroof back and forth like a carwash would. The video shows the second time i sprayed the moonroof, hence the back pillar already being wet. As you can see, not only is the interior covered in water, water also somehow found its way to the back driver's side pillar. Angry and disgusted, I took my CR-V back to the dealership, and showed them the video. They proceeded to tell me that it is NORMAL. Seriously???? Normal??? I understand that a little water may get into the drip tray, but this is far beyond that. Not satisfied, I embarked on a long journey to get my CR-V fixed or replaced. I met with the regional service manager, and he also told me it was normal. I opened a complaint with American Honda, and 15 phone conversations later (literally), they told me that they had to rely on their regional service manager's decision, and that they weren't going to do anything about it. I took it to the dealership in Auburn, AL, and they actually told me that they had NEVER seen such a thing. They said that it was crazy to think it was normal. FInally! Someone on my side! I called American Honda back and told them to call the King Honda dealership in Auburn, AL. They did, and the dealership that I had just talked to, the dealership that JUST told me that it definitely WASN'T normal, backtracked and said there wasn't a problem. I'm fed up with Honda. I've had 2 Honda's before this one, and neither one let so much as a drop into the drip tray, let alone into the cabin of the vehicle. My wife's 1994 Honda Accord with a moonroof doesn't even do this. Moral of the story...DON'T BUY A HONDA WITH A MOONROOF/SUNROOF! As a matter of fact, you may not want to buy Honda at all, because they don't stand behind their product.
GMC Motorhomes Being Invited To Leave From 2 Year Storage
The owner of the storage facility (to remain nameless, it really doesn't matter) died and his daughter inherited it. She wants to make the place pretty. As if how pretty a storage facility is matters to its customers, ie, the people who are paying for it. Anyway, the deal is either fix up everything to their satisfaction (with copies of ownership papers and insurance, etc to remain with the new manageent) or leave. So, I'm leaving. There is some problem, as the current tires are dry rotted, so I have to lift both coaches, pull the wheels, get new tires mounted to the rims, replace the wheels, and lower them. Also, the wheels on the green Palm Beach are junkyard wheels: I'm going to put the old wheels from the Royale onto the Palm Beach, and put new 16 inch aluminum wheels on the Royale... which is going to cost a ton of money that I really hadn't budgeted for. I will get them moved though, one way or the other. (Mississippi is a single-party notification state, so I can record and publish our telephone conversation. I don't mean to be a douche, and the lady wasn't nasty about it, but it's pretty clear that she has her own ideas as to what she wants to do with her property... whether I think it's good business or not on her part.)

Raising The Barn Queen
As part of the continuing saga of being asked to leave my storage facility, it was necessary to jack up the Palm Beach and remove the wheels so that the brakes can be serviced and good rubber can be mounted. The rear tires are relatively new (late 2010), but the front tires are a minimum of 21 years old, possibly 31 years old. I'm deathly afraid of wasps, which explains the ridiculous outfit that I created. I'm using a new video editing software (Serif Movie Plus) instead of my tried and true Windows Movie Maker.

2003 Chevy Impala open exhaust manifolds
My moms car (2003 Impala 3.8l v6) wouldnt pull when she hit the gas so me and my friend who works on cars concluded that the cat was clogged.
We unbolted it and sure enough that was it.
And with the manifolds open, you know a vid had to be made!!!
Sounds bad as hell!
My truck's in the body shop, here's the loaner car I got!
After the first loaner car didn't work, I was loaned this 2001 Buick LeSabre Custom. It runs well and looks good.
It's also very likely that I put a dent in my fuel economy by letting the Buick idle one day when it was very cold.
