    Chitown WaGN....project from hell

    I went to the Buick Club of America meet in Lisle Illinois and boy Gordo you're missing your calling with Grumpy Old Men. I will admit all of them had their wives trained well to answer questions. So many old farts taking a 1908 Buick twin-cylinder out for Joyrides. I swear to God I was expecting a bingo game to break out somewhere.

    Actually it's been getting a hell of a lot of attention I tried to upload a picture from when it first showed up and it's always had a crowd around it almost all day. Non-stop questions I kind of wish I knew more about the mx62 chassis aside from front brakes smaller than the 2-door Coupe and the rear axle that might as well have toothpicks in the axle tubes

    He's actually really mild compared to some of the locals. Verbal Jabs at your kidneys, liver and gut's are pretty damn common at the car shows. Then again some of them have spent nearly $1,000 on a set of lug nuts....so their opinions are worth 0.01 cents.

    Well after a good bit of work everything appears to be doing good so I'm going to be driving this jalopy from Chicago Illinois to just south of Flint Michigan for the buick v6 gathering....June 19th Flint was the home of the factory that made all of the Buick 3.8 & 3800 V6's I will be driving via tachometer to gauge my speed and everything else I'm going to cross my fingers but hopefully all of the Toyota electrical glitches don't leave me stranded somewhere since I'm pretty sure it won't be the Buick engine or GM trans that will leave me stuck somewhere....I hope. I'm going to cross my fingers and kiss my ass goodbye. Wish me luck or wish me to spontaneously combust while driving the Toyota. Either way it's technically my first vacation in years.

    got stopped by a lexus driver, asked about the car and he thought it was the toyota engine..... so two 3 to 1 merges into a 2 to1 with equal length piping does sound like the I6 it sounds nothing like any other 3800/3.8 buick cars i have to rewire the OD switch but once i do the TCC ive been testing will be connected to it. i can cruise at 65mph at 2400rpm instead of nearly 3000.... so there's that. i weighed down the ass end by putting a skid of 2000lbs of steel in the back with a torn up MSC catalog above the tires to push the lip up and out, nearly got it to do a wheelie. no longer slicing up the sidewalls of the MT ET streets....however i noticed the "pop" sound i heard....appears to be that i popped EVERY one of the lower rocker stainless trim clips while i was probably flexing the hell outta the unibody. it at least appears that the land cruiser guys use the same clips and they are available.... fix one problem create another.....i love what you do to me, toyota

    back on the road again, drove about 20 miles today, no issues, exhaust is tons quieter inside the car but still quite loud when stomped on.... i think i need to tuck the tip further under the bumper. sounds good, dunno yet how it sounds from the back...

    We built our own machine to be able to print all the way up to the extremely high temperatures of polycarbonate. You'll notice that the build surface is sized to be able to do the entire Grille in one piece. It will be doing a large portion of the work making lightweight parts for our twin engine Oldsmobile

    Thanks! I only used the baling wire to hold it up while I made the actual mounts and Hangers. Yeah I really like this little freak as it's pretty much a 3/4 scale Buick Roadmaster station wagon. I've been wanting to use the 3D printer I've been building to print out a vertical slat Grill that would make it look even more like a turbo Brick...um buick. I don't know how much of the underpinnings are exactly like the 7's but this is an mx62. I'm guessing that's one of the reasons why it was a 3-day road trip to the South Carolina for me to find the interior parts I needed from a car in the junkyard.... I see 85 and later Cressida's all the time but I never see one of these older ones. Actually it always seems bad. But maybe I'm being a little flippant about it since you sort of get used to stepping over the bodies and chalk outlines. Regards, James W.
