1  The Coffee Shop / The Counter / Re: Parting out on: July 24, 2011, 03:07:02 PM
i'd love to restore it myself, the only real porblems are the blown engine, who knows how many of its parts are still working, and the torn up tires. i dont want to get rid of it at all, it was a gift from my dad, i just dont have the funds to work on it, and my truck needs to be put first now

I'd like to know what everyone thinks of parting out vehicles that aren't running. I have a 68 Ford Thunderbird thats engine is blown, though there may be some salvagable parts. I dont want to get rid of any Body or cab parts, the tires are gone (i.e.: large holes, non-repairable), and the entire thing needs an overhaul. In a sense, it's my "pretty kitty savoy" (lol). will post pictures later if i can find a way to have more than one picture on this site.
3  The Coffee Shop / Charlie's Comedy Corner / Stairway to heaven (blonde joke) on: June 24, 2011, 02:50:38 PM
A blonde, a brunette, and a redhead were standing before the stairway to heaven.
God appeared and explained:
"The stairway to heaven is a journey of 99 steps.
Upon each step, I will tell you a joke.
If you laugh, you will NOT be admitted to heaven."
The three agreed and began the ascent.
The brunette reached the 32nd step and laughed.
She plummeted to earth.
The redhead reached the 84th step and laughed.
She plummeted to earth.
The Blonde reached the 99th step, but began laughing before God told the joke.
"Why are you laughing?" God asked, "I have'nt even said the joke."
After the blonde caught her breath, she explained,
"I just got the first joke"

Test drive......very hot success. Literally. Now I remember that the a/c and heater dont work and I havent figured out why. Erin suggestes the blower motor is out. I agree, because when I flip the switch, nothing happens. I remember one time it sounded like the air was blowing somewhere, but it wasnt coming out of the vents. The only place the air flows is out of the defroster. Any ideas? And anybody know any GOOD QUALITY, VERY CHEAP engine degreaser?

SHE'S ALIVE!!!!!! Sprayed some brake cleaner in the carburator and after a few kicks she started runnin. gonna take her for a test drive here soon

so, we got some pics to post up later, but boy was that interesting today. batts were dead, so i called a friend with jumpers to charge 'em a little, ended up hooking one up to the car and getting a column of smoke from the car batts ground post and melted jumpers. more to come

new development: the butterfly door on my carburator is stuck open and will not close, and as I'm posting this, just found out my fuel pump is out as well. I love my ol' beat-up, POS, knuckle buster, widow maker, forgein totaler, junkyard scrap, steel bodied Country Dream!


--seriously, I love my truck haha

Thanks everyone for the welcome, and Leeann, Charlie1935, and Mr, Griffin for all the advice. my grandparents are outside with me now working on country. we put the engine back together (what we had apart) and I tightened the starter as much as I humanly could push myself to......now shes trying to turn over, but it seems shes not pulling an adequet amount of fuel.
13  The Parking Lot / Mopar Motorhomes / Re: Prettykitty's 'new' motorhome on: June 22, 2011, 03:41:27 AM
I have personally seen the damage, and i apologise for answering the question in Erin's place as she's asleep, though she'll be able to add on to more than I've seen.

The chasis seemed to be ok, the body was a little beat up, door handle is all but ripped out and the door is being held shut through the hole fixated on the interior and exterior hand rails, kitchen window is jammed open as well as the window in the rear if I remember correctly, engine will not turn over (not even the "click" of engagment), the walls had a few stains, a couple outlets had scorch marks.

Again, I apologise for answering in Erin's place, however, she does know alot more and I'll inform her when she wakes that you've replied and at her earliest convienience should reply with more.

Hello Mr. Griffin, nice to somewhat meet you. That's the best advice I've heard thus far, and confirms some of my suspitions of the push-button ignition, and I'll be sure to try it in the morning. The starter was also my first thought, because the "unusual noise" seemed to be coming from there, though it sounded like an electric scooter starting up. Could that be a sign that the gears may not be connecting? I would like to ask, though, would it behoove me to go ahead and completely replace the actual ignition switch on the steering column? I do apologise, I'm a bit new at all this, and I greatly appreciate all of your help.

Leeann- I have to find them first lol. I dont know how it's possible, but the original owner had so many added and unneeded parts to the engine that it's difficult to find where certain components should be/originally were.

Also, there is an aftermarket cruise control that seems to have a mind of its own. I personally wouldnt use it, even though it tends to kick on seemingly of its own accord. Any opinions on fix and/or remove?
15  The Parking Lot / Mopar Trucks / Re: Country Dream Dodge 150 Custom on: June 21, 2011, 07:40:37 PM
Ok, got my account up, thanks Leeann.
Charlie1935: Yup, been like that since I bought her. Except what me and my dad or grandparents have already worked on. Including Erin (prettykitty) helping me with the belts and pulleys. She says she'd rather be working on the Savoy though lol, but I'm more than happy shes helping. Maybe I can return the favor someday.

On top of whats been noted:
Passenger door wont lock, but same problem has been fixed on the driver side before
Needs a paint job (goin for maybe a commemerative mural)

Plans:
Heavy gauge brush/cattle guard
Single smoke stack exhaust
Lift/4x4 kit
Rear window rifle rack
