  1. There is an upcoming car show hosted by the Ballard Elks, of which Jake Hall is a member. I have attended this show for the past few years. Some years a lot of the local crew show up, some they don't. Ballard Elks Annual Car Show I was thinking that we should kind of high jack the show, of a sorts, and turn it into a Autumn/Fall version of the XXX Swedish Drive-in, just not named that, since it is the Ballard Elks show after all. This show is for all that show up and pay the entry "donation", so it would not be exclusive to us. But, the timing is right, as opposite the year from XXX and you please, and it's an established show ran by people that have hosted a car show before. The Ballard Elk Lodge has a large parking lot, it rarely has reached 1/4 capacity in the past with all the cars that show up. Plenty of room for us lot, and the others that come each year. The Volvo people that have come in the past tend to gather in one corner of the lot and socialize while the rest of the show does what they want. It works out nicely in my opinion, and we are all mutually respectable of each other. And, since this is a Elks Lodge event, the entry fee donation is going to help charities. If we usual Volvo suspects show up, that would be a sizable contribution that they would love to see. From a few years back:
  2. Finally! 27"x3 Curved Samsung Monitors!
  3. Yup, It's the 1000ca version not the 800cca; so I paid $150 out the door. I haven't purchased a OEM battery in like 20 years. But, due to all the computers and electrical needs of this car, its the really the best battery on the market. This, or the Interstate Battery version, which costs more currently.
  4. 60lbs of lead and acid. The V12 in the CL600 needs mass quantities...
  5. Am I using this thread right?
  6. I've been thinking about this doing something about this in the back of my mind; I hate how far my clutch depresses. What did you come up with?
  7. Man, so sorry to here about this. Part of the reason I went with Wiseco pistons is because of your build. But, alas, everything ends. It looks to me like when your piston was on the down stroke, it was extending downward enough for the rod to come in contact with the skirt. That would explain the slight bend in the skirt, and the stress cracks/fractures. i.e: The skirt was being bent out ever so slightly from the inside by impacting the rod; then, probably bent back into position by the bore on the upstroke. Do this enough times, and BAM stress cracks. Are there any signs of contact on the rods? Also, I don't remember, is this a B5244T3 block? If not, did you also use the crank from a B5244T3 along with the Piston/Rod setup from it? I only ask because the B5244T3 crank as a 92mm circumference, as apposed to the 90mm of the B5234T3. This allows the rod to be in a difference place when rotating than on the 90mm. It is a small difference, but enough to allow for clearance. Just a thought...
  8. Sure looks better, but also emphasis the need for moar low on that Saffy
  9. I do not currently have any watches, as I really do not like having things on my wrist. But, I am thinking of trying to break this aversion with purchasing a Slow Watch; specifically the Slow Jo 06 38mm style. Anyone have any experience with these? Are they worth the price?
  10. A set of Brabus Monoblock IV for $150. Should look real nice after refurb.
  11. Tech Day with MBCA, Seattle Chapter. Left with a long list of what it needs, and in what order to do it in.
  12. I've got a set of them too, work horse and impractical:
  13. The intake is a bit louder, meaning that if you rev up to a little over 2K, then let it drop, you get a sneeze. Performance wise... meh... That is my quickly made, temporary fix for a fresh air feed. It's a piece of 3" sewer pipe that is ovaled to fit between the intercooler and the top bar. Mind you, it was meant to be temporary, but has been on the car for like, 3 years. Someday I will get around to finishing the fresh air part of the piping.
