Last Call: Angle of the Dangle Edition

Did you ever patronize a video store like Blockbuster? If so, do you recall leaving there with not only a Hollywood hit but also a crick in your neck from having to dog-twist your head to read to vertically-aligned titles? Well, you might have to do that again with the above pic. Sorry about that.

    The fun thing about seeing any Jeep from 1987-200 is trying to figure out whether or not it is a YJ or TJ without looking at the grille

    This one?

    Most likely a YJ, due to TJ’s having full rear bumpers and coil springs, while this one has what appears to be bumperettes and leaf springs.

      Also, aren’t the hood catches different? These look like what the YJ used (T-handle you lift up, and then out), and I think the TJ moved to something like what’s on the JK’s currently.

        I didn’t know that one, but a quick Googling proves you right!

        Hood-wise, another way to tell is by the stops for the windshield to rest on.

        The YJ’s had a rubber coated metal loop, while TJ’s had an all rubber piece.

        (The exception to this rule is the small run of 1996 made, 1995 titled YJs, which came with the TJ rubber pieces.)

      Hood latches and leaf springs say YJ.

    I guess when you own a totally bitchin’ domain name like that, you don’t need to hire any copy editors.

        You’d think that they’d be trying a little harder to capitalise on their obvious invention of time travel. Typical techies. Can’t see the wood for the trees.

    I was showing some friends of mine my neighbours really nice manicured creek/pond (with permission), and when we passed their garage, I told the other car guy in the group to peek through the window.

    Well, said neighbour saw us, and proceed to open the garage, so we could get an even closer look at her 1970 Pontiac GTO Judge. Now, I have ridden in this car before, but it was still a treat to see it. When we were done, the neighbour then told us to wait a bit, as her husband was on his way home with his car, which I had assumed was his 2012 Camaro convertible.

    I was wrong.

    Unbeknownst to me, he had traded in his “old” Camaro for a new one. That’s right, a brand new 2016 Camaro SS convertible.

    After telling us all about his new ride, he put it in the garage, which also contained his wife’s “new” ride, a 1990s BMW 318i convertible.

    I had intended to show my friends ducks, geese, and peacocks, when instead I was treated to a mini car show!

    I really do have the coolest neighbours…

    Oh, and he also has a 1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass, but that was in storage while I was there.

      Ducks, geese, peacocks and a Goat. (And a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs, if legend is to be believed.)

    A cut out of this was used in the Wide World of Sport for their closing highlights compilation, always loved it from that!

    So MiSSus GTXcellent gets home last night, and hands me this (not my pic, just a random one off the net):
    Says she went for a downshift and this fell on her foot!
    With a little bit of Google-fu, turns out this is a clutch helper spring. That little yellow clip often breaks and the end result is just what happened – a giant scare when a large part falls out of the bottom of the dash. It’s a weird, over-kill set up and the only issue that results is no cruise control. Surprisingly, this is one of the few Saab parts that are actually available – thanks
