1979 Jeep Cherokee Quadratrac

This was my pride and joy,I bought it 10 years ago for $4800.00,it was a total wreck,but after roughly two years and $22,000 it was turned into one of the nicest Chero's on the road.

I did the whole lot from the ground up,she drove like a limo,sweet sweet note from the 360.

Trans was T/H400 Full time 4X4 transfer case,dana diffs.

She is gone now through stupidity on my part.

I leant over to the passenger side to retrieve a dropped cd,and the road camber (I live in the country bad bad roads) caused the truck to veer slightly to the left,the left side of my truck collided with a tree,which then punched the truck across to the other side of the road where it hit two other trees.

Mercury Cougar

This is/was my 1967 Mercury Cougar.
I sold it to replace my old Cherokee,and help with the purchase of Eleanor,my 1971 Mach 1 Mustang Fastback.

The reason I am posting these images is to show the diverse range of cars I have owned over the years.

As you can tell I have no preferance as to make model or species.kik

This is a restoration job

This is a 1972 Datsun 240C coupe,a very rare vehicle that I purchased in 1983. The main image is how I brought it home,inserted is the finished product.
It took 2 years and $19,000 to complete.

The car was destroyed in an accident in 1992,but for 7 years I never had a problem other then 1 blown head gasket.

This car copped so much [Naughty Pottyword],and it never complained.
When it was time to go to work she started 1st time every time no matter how I bad treated her the day before.

OHC 6 cyl 2.8 liters twin Su's heavy duty clutch,Nissan 4 speed box.
Extractors,2" sports exhaust,it pulled a 15 sec Q/M which is not bad considering it was basically stock.

Compressor

Hi.
With the mechanical work well on its way on my HZ Panelvan project, the time has come to begin to look at bodywork, I'm interested in learning and doing as much of it myself as possible so I figure I need a compressor, some prelim investigation has left me fairly lost, it seems fairly random how these things are measured, CFM/PSI/HP/Duty Cycle so on and so forth, What I'm looking for is a decent recommendation for a good quality compressor for use spraying, I will be spraying the whole car, and as its windowless, theres large areas that need spraying all in one go. I would assume that a compresser with the capacity to spray properly will also run most decent air tools?

Brakes Maybe??

OOps i posted this as a story, ohwell second time lucky!

This question is about a 1990 v6 VN. I dunno if the VN would be to 'new' for u guys but here goes :P
When i take off from standstill and accelerate quickly of the mark i get this sorta grinding/rubbing noise happenening on what seems to be the rear left wheel. I had it checked out and the right hand side caliper had seized. But it turns out thats not the problem (just one of them!)
The car can feel like im driving with the handbrake on sometimes and other times the thing goes great. Also the handbrake doesn't work when the car rolls backward.

Im hoping it's something to do with the handbrake adjustment and not something to do with the diff etc.
