  • Dwight Yoakam is playing next week. On vacation so could go but not paying $$ when all that's left is seats at the back and its two plus hours drive each way. Went to the same show a few years ago and that's all I did-drove straight there and back. There's a Horton Heat show next month but with two other bands listed IDK who is the opener/closer. Not interested in the other two or being out all night. I hate sitting around waiting for bands to change out on stage.

    • Got told my grass is a foot high. Haven't mowed in a month and its not even two inches. Not my fault the city won't take my tree branches. Same two right by the curb for IDK how long. They just drive by even though we pay them to take it. Three guys in the truck on at least one occasion. Can't burn anything-its a fire hazard. Wanted a wood chipper but would only use it once or twice. Too $$.

      • Sort of a rhetorical question... Are brake drums supposed to match?
        Removed as part of the rear axle clean up I'm puttering around with. Brakes look great, so just cleaned them up. Noticed one seemed to weigh more than the other, so put'em on a scale. One is 13.4# the other 14.4#
        And the axle ends don't match either. Guess this is definitely a hybrid project car.

        • Looks like a replacement axle. Dual bolt pattern maybe? My Yukon axles have holes for screw in studs and press in. One of my drums is the smooth older style and the other is finned. Changed around 69 or 70. El Camino is a 71 not sure what the 12 bolt is out of.

          • Definitely replacement stuff. The factory Trans Am axle would have been a 10 bolt. This is a 12 bolt from unknown source. Bolt pattern used on the left side is stock TA (chevy) 5x4-3/4. All the holes are smooth, so all press-in style studs.
            Working on searching details on the casting & stamped numbers I found on the axle.
