    Re: "New" Logan Lathe

    Looks like a perfect size - nice lathe. Maybe contact the previous owner re the voltage?

    Re: Frugal Tool Hacks

    Many of these techniques are clever and useful, but I have found that a stern stare is at least as effective as any of them. When a problem (stuck bolt, broken stud, etc.) presents itself, stare...

    Indeed. And it was breaking wind for the other cars, so to speak.

    Big Healey near Portland OR

    On a car transporter. Two-tone paint. It was being carried over the cab with 2 other cars on the trailer behind.

    Re: Across The USA - Member Meetups?

    I was surprised at how fast some of those trucks can go - some were doing about 85 with no apparent problem. At some point - I forget which state - the limit on a 2 lane road was 70- for cars and 65...

    Re: Leaving Maine

    Thanks for the heads up. We'll check on it before we leave. I think we must have passed each other at some point - a missed opportunity.

    It was an interesting trip. I learned that I-90 ain't route...

    Re: Leaving Maine

    Made it to our Airbnb in Spokane today. We'll be here for 2 weeks, then down to Oregon. It'll be good to be in one place for a while and let the mail catch up etc. I'll post a few pictures in the...

    Re: Leaving Maine

    Judy, thanks for the kind offer. Since part of the reason for the move is proximity to family we'll probably end up in the northwest. I can understand your liking NM - we've been to Santa Fe & Taos...

    Re: Leaving Maine

    We did see a huge, white, upside-down house. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to take a boat ride - my wife bought a book on the area's history, though. Lots of interesting things in America's...

    Re: Leaving Maine

    In Wisconsin at a place called the "Wisconsin Dells". It seems to be a big local tourist area - amusement parks etc - and is pretty crowded. Locals appear to love it.

    So far so good. I've been...

    Re: Leaving Maine

    Spent 2 days in Adirondacks & now in Niagara Falls NY. Saw a Crosley Hotshot leaving a gas station near Indian Lake on Saturday. The little 750 sounded good!

    Re: Leaving Maine

    A major concern, Don. Not sure I'll fit in.

    Background: Some folks may remember that my then wife died of breast cancer back in 2007. I subsequently remarried. My new wife (wonderful woman) had...

    Leaving Maine

    Just sold our place here in Maine and are headed west. The plan is to drive out and see some sights along the way. We're headed to Spokane WA first, then Silverton OR. At the moment we're essentially...

    Re: Lotus Elan

    I had an Elan Coupe of roughly the same vintage - drove it often and loved it. One of the few LBC's that can keep up with modern traffic. Once I got the Webers squared away it was very drivable....

    Re: computer backup question

    It sounds like you used the "Disk Image" option to back up the system. This usually creates ".vhd" files. These files are Windows "Virtual Hard Disk" image files and, if you don't mind getting into...

    Re: Not the "best car ever made" by a long shot

    I guess I'm not a serious off-roader but I use 4wd every day during winter & early spring. (The road down to our house is 4wd-only at those times.) So, I face snow (no problem), ice (big problem...
  21. Re: Math Question - How to Move All the Vehicles to Virginia?

    This is a 3,000+/- trip. If I needed to do this, I'd lighten the load. I'd probably sell the Midget and tow the GT on the trailer. Even with 3 vehicles + the trailer you're going to travel 9000+...

    Re: Can you tell the difference?

    I remember that ad. I thought it was pathetic. It reminds me of the "dollar store" off-brands that mimic name brands in their labeling & logos to trick people into buying them.
