    Ah yeah probably, didn't think about that
    I'm not like a VW expert or even knowledgeable so don't take my word for it, but the wiki article says that the Mk4 was a damn good car compared to its competition while the Mk3 not so much so they must have improved a lot of stuff. I guess insurance views the Mk4 as less of a liability and hence charges less

    From what I've heard the Mk3 Golf was the worst one ever when it comes to rust at least

    My dad's friend had one that was in really good shape, but then he noticed the floor was wet so he pulled out the carpet to let it dry and there was no floor underneath. It was all gone because of rust

    Did an estimate on what purchasing and renovating the 300zx might cost.
    3787$+
    But then again I saw a renovated one in "okay" condition went for 6058$, so I could make a profit.

    Man, I love this job already and I haven't even finished training and it's only been two days since I've started working


    I've learned so much the past two days, I know quite a bit about how cars work now and the names of parts in cars. I can actually understand what some of you talk about now

    Cheap alternatives to a jack stand? Would big blocks of wood be safe? I need to safely put my head under the car without it being decapitated.

    Yeah definitely, I know someone who does that kind of shit all the time!



    I wouldn't personally use wood as a jackstand, I suppose it would be better than nothing but I've always heard to slide your wheels under the car whenever you take them off incase the car comes down. It would probably be better than nothing and I'd leave the jack doing most the work still.

    If you're just checking something out real quick you should be fine but I wouldn't personally wench on anything with only a jack holding up a car.

    For $20 you can get yourself a nice pair of jack stands. That's not a very high price for your life. Now, they may not be the sort I would trust under a truck but for any car they will work fine. No company wants do deal with that lawsuit and recall.

    I only use wood blocks. Definitely don't use bricks or cinder blocks, they have a tendency to fail without warning but a solid wood block will always be plainly obvious when it is failing and realistically won't fail unless the wood has rotted (and if the wood is PT, even if left outside, it will take a very long time for the wood to rot)

    I've jacked up my 2500 pickup and put it down on wood blocks, my Bug is currently all 4 wheels on wood blocks and has been for a couple days (with me underneath it). Personally, I trust wood blocks more than I trust jack stands or anything else. Obviously you shouldn't put the whole weight of your car on a plain 2x4 but pretty much any block of PT 3x3 or bigger will support a lot of weight, i've got 4 blocks of PT probably 6"x12" that I pretty much use all the time to set cars and shit on.

    Thanks, I'll be changing my oil in a few months time and have nothing to use. My dad does DIY and all that so I'll try and go for Concur's idea, my Dad should be able to cut me some wood like that.

    That is kinda sad. My friend just bought one of those.
    74? Lincoln Continental MarkII
    Him pull up with the lights on, gets out and here we are looking at the car.
    All of a sudden the driver side eye opens, followed by the passenger side eye.
    We shat bricks.

    The Norfolk company claims that at a constant 70mph the Iceni's engine spins at just 980rpm, at which point it will return 68.9mpg. The car has a range of 2,000 miles on one tank of fuel, which could be bio diesel, palm oil or linseed oil.

    Aaaaaaarrrrrrrg, it's fucking PERFECT

    http://bc.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicles-...AdIdZ405056514



    1969 (grille is 69) Chev Short Box with the 5 bolt pattern, $400 flipping dollars and it looks like it is great for rust, fuck. My dad had the same truck in highschool but it was a '68, I am going to bargain my ass off with my parents for this, if I can get $3000 for my truck then I can have this truck looking really nice. Calling the guy tomorrow, hopefully my dad doesn't shoot my hopes down, it's 10 hours away which is my main problem but I would gladly drive that far.

    Can't. Fucking. Sleep. Pop the 350 in it (if it was a small block truck) that I have lying around and maybe the turbo 350 trans also, primer black and I'm good to go. Dad had a 454 and it was primer for the most of its life so it would be pretty close.

    Edited:

    Appears to be a CST/10 (Top of the line trim) so there is a good chance of it being a v8 truck, would explains the missing engine as the inline 6's arnt too sought after
