Caballero Game Ends!

Posted: June 26, 2017 by veeshir in Democratic morality, Fun With Media, Funniest End of Civilization Evah, Trump 2020 Reelection Team

I called Summit and told them they fucked me. I told them they need to give me a check for $3,000 to pay for putting the engine in a car, pulling the engine out of the car and putting it back into another car.

The rest of what I spent is my problem, but they really need to step up. In the FAQ section at Blueprint, they have this picture next to the question, Will it pass emissions?

I figured you just put a catalytic converter on and it passed emissions. That’s why I called Summit, so they make sure I didn’t spend $4k on the wrong engine.

I’m moving this week, too bad I don’t have a vehicle I could use to help move like a pick-up or an El Camino. My buddy has a pick-up but it’s in rough shape, I think I’ll have to rent something.

Speaking of Caballeroing, I talked to some people and then the mechanic who has my Caballero about changing the cam shaft.

Everybody knowledgeable, including the mechanic who after talking to me looked into it last week, say it’s a bad idea. Don’t screw with a brand-new performance engine, it’ll screw everything up. 

So….the Caballero is soon to be a shell without an engine. Possibly full of bullet holes. Maybe some buckshot, I do have a new shotgun I haven’t fired yet.

For its last tow I’m thinking of taking it on Apache Trail between Apache Lake and Roosevelt, they have good parking there! Some people have been parking there since there have been cars in AZ!

If you have a Sikorsky and want something from 100 or more years ago, they’re there for the taking! Hell, you might even find a 1979 Caballero if you wait a week or 70! (depending on whether it fucks with me as hard taking the engine out as it did putting it in)

I can either go back to either 62 or 57 to get a Chevy small block to fit without modifications (I’m trying to figure out the year) and only go up to 66 for emissions purposes.

GMs in that year range are expensive, ratty Chevelles with bad interior and bad exterior are $5k, forget about El Caminos.

The mechanic said he knows guy who could put it in something else. My buddy in VA says he can put a Chevy small block in anything, like a Miata, this guy says he knows some people who can do that.

I’m going to look for something pre-66, possibly a Ranchero, which is what I wanted anyway or I keep seeing a 65 Barracuda without an engine that needs a paint job an engine and trans. I have an engine and a trans! I’m not sure if a Chevy small block would destroy the value, but I don’t care at this point.

Aaahhhh, let’s look at stuff that makes my  Caballero travails look picayune!

 

On that deal where our destroyer hit a container ship, this is ‘anonymous sources’ so take it for what it’s worth.

A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship’s captain.

I was leaning toward the container ship being jihadi, but now I’m leaning toward some soon to be Ensign-For-Life being on the bridge and screwing up by the numbers.

 

Aww, poor Megyn Kelly,

Long knives are unsheathed for Megyn Kelly from both sides of the political spectrum. When she took on then-candidate Trump, she began to lose conservatives, and sealed the deal with her sexual harassment accusations that accompanied her departure from Fox for the liberal pastures of Comcast’s NBC.

Now, in the words of Scott Greer, deputy editor of the Daily Caller, “Liberals no longer want Megyn Kelly.”

 

Liberals never wanted her, just people from the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party (media section), she thought she could go full Never-Trumper and it would be a good career move. She needed to go full lefty, like Alyson Camerota did after leaving Fox. Megyn just didn’t realize that Foxnews was the only place where you could actually think for yourself.

 

Speaking of going full lefty, this self-help/how-to guide makes me laugh.

It’s hard to imagine any reader of George Orwell’s 1984 could forget the fate of poor Winston, but some theatregoers seem to have slid it into their own personal memory hole.

A new stage adaptation of Orwell’s post-war dystopian classic is leaving audiences reeling over its graphic depictions of torture…

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s previews on Broadway had viewers fainting, throwing up, and screaming for mercy to the actors from their seats during the title’s notorious ‘Room 101’ torture scenes.

The trade-rag also cited the production’s stomach-churning strobe lights and “jackhammer” sound effects as sources of audience distress.

Room 101 is not fun when you’re the one being punished for wrongthink. Just ask Milo Yiannopoulos.

This made me laugh

1984‘s current run comes as interest in Orwell’s novel skyrocketed in the wake of Donald Trump’s US election win last November.

It’s like ringing a bell at Pavlov’s dog, whenever a ‘journalist’ writes something it needs to bash Trump.

I will say it’s too bad there hasn’t been another POTUS or prospective POTUS who was a vicious lefty who had a cult-of-personality thing going that we could have compared to 1984.

 

Arguing with headlines!

TDS: NY Times Decides To Take Iran’s Side Against Trump

Decides? They’ve been taking Iran’s side against America since the instant Ronnie Raygun was sworn in. More recently, they had 8 years of cheering on a POTUS who took Iran’s side against America at every opportunity. Where has RWN been?

 

Prof will not be rehired following Otto Warmbier remarks

If he had been Of Color!, no lefty would have even thought of saying something like that, so that’s why it was said.

Except for “what he deserved”, I mostly agree.

I’ve said the kid was an idiot, I won’t say he deserved what happened but he did put himself in a position where it was likely.

Don’t go to murderous dictatorships. They’re murderous. And dictatorial. And they hate America and Americans.

This same prof probably would have encouraged him to go to See Other Cultures!!!! cuz they’re all equal and murderous dictators are just friends we haven’t met yet.

 

Some of the links above and below are from Doug Ross’ Larwyn’s Lynx, you should be reading there.

 

Okay, this makes me laugh. Iran learns from the Goracle!

The rally also inaugurated a huge digital countdown display at Tehran Palestine Square, showing that Israel will allegedly cease to exist in 8,411 days.

In 2015, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei predicted that after 25 years — by 2040 — there will no longer be a State of Israel.

 

20+ years away. Now that’s how you predict!

That way, they don’t have to keep changing their predictions when Israel stays stubbornly undestroyed, sorta like the North Pole being all rude and ice-full even though Gore promised us it would be ice-free 4 years ago, or 5 years ago, or 6 years ago…..or 12 years ago.

 

Supreme Court Legislates!

The Supreme Court is letting the Trump administration mostly enforce its 90-day ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries, overturning lower court orders that blocked it…

The court did leave one category of foreigners protected, those “with a credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States,” the court said in an unsigned opinion. (emphasis me V)

When did the Supreme Court get a line-item veto? The POTUS doesn’t have that but they do?

And what the hell is a “credible claim of a bona fide…?”

I’ll tell you what it is, it’s a Lawyer Employment Decision. If it wasn’t they would have said, “Married or child or parent” or something specific. Or are they saying they’ll only let Vernon T. Waldrip in? He’s bona fide.

Yeah, I’m sick of rule by Bureaucratic Lawyers, the bureaucrats make sure bureaucracies expand and lawyers as judges and pols who make stuff vague enough to ensure lawyers get to gum up the works while siphoning money from the productive.

 

More Arguing With Headlines!

President Trump Has Now Signed 40 Pieces Of Legislation As He Moves To Enact His Agenda

Let’s see what ‘enacting his agenda’ means.

The bills include an act to improve weather forecasting, a long-term vision for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

What? We’re dumping money on Global Warmmongers? Whose agenda is that? Hillary fucking Clinton’s, that’s who.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Transition Authorization Act of 2017 calls for a $19.5 billion budget for NASA — an increase from $19.3 billion in 2016 — and also asks that NASA create a plan for getting humans “near or on the surface of Mars in the 2030s.”

I can give you a plan for a lot less, get NASA out of space flight. If they still had shuttles working I’d feel differently, but now that they’ve spent years Muslim Outreaching and global warmmongering they have nothing to provide. Offer $500 million or $billion to the first one to reach Mars. That would save us tens of $billions while also getting us there 10-1,000 years earlier while ensuring we won’t just go there, drop off some crap and leave never to go back.

Fifteen of the 40 signed bills repeal Obama-era regulations. Examples of these regulations include a rule that made it tougher for states to drug test welfare recipients and a regulation that imposed permitting requirements on mining sites. These bills signed by President Trump utilized the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to nullify any rule or regulation created in the previous administration’s final six months.

That’s not so bad, but he’s been doing that stuff with his Pen and Phone, all most of those bills do is spend money.

The point is that none of them address immigration, Obamacare or pissing in Chuck Schumer’s Cheerios so they’re not Trump’s agenda.

 

The worst was all the ‘bi-partisan’ bills. Those always suck. They’re either fluff, lefty priorities or a declaration of war.

 

So we all saw CNN lie, realize this lie was above and beyond the call of idiocy, and retract the story. The retraction was the surprise for me, they usually just memory hole that shit.

The scandal surrounding CNN’s mishandling of a very fake news hit piece on President Donald Trump and his associates grows bigger on Sunday night as the network’s president Jeff Zucker and public relations team are refusing to comment to anyone…

This is the extra-touch that makes me laugh.

“The truth is, there’s still a lot we don’t know,” Stelter (CNN’s media watchdog V) wrote. “On Saturday and Sunday I asked CNN PR for details and comment. A network spokeswoman declined to comment as of Sunday evening.”

Did anybody watch Howard Kurtz this weekend? Did he touch on this? I ask because when he was media watchdogging for the Wash Post and working for CNN he ignored another of their media-malpractice deals, I figure he ignored it again.

Cuz he’s a media defender, a sorta cut-rate Tom Sawyer, not a media watchdog.

I can help with this.

CNN’s president Zucker, both Breitbart News and BuzzFeed News have confirmed, is leading an internal investigation into what went wrong and who was responsible.

It was the head of CNN and every editor as well, who’ve all been encouraging lying hitjobs crediting anonymous sources that caused this. It wasn’t much worse than many other lies they’ve published lately so I really am surprised they didn’t just memory hole it or change it to, “Some say…” or something.

I will bet a dollar there’s a Winston Smith somewhere in CNN HQ saying, “See! I told you we should have just memory-holed it!”

 

This is winning!

Except for the last part, I see lots of stories claiming it’s happening and lots of stories claiming it’s a lie, but they’re all from 2009-2013.

If I had seen any recent stories I’d assume the global worming lefties were doing what they do best, lie to obfuscate the issue (see, global worming pause), but since I can’t find a recent article I figure it was, “We’re gonna sue him and it’s going to be awesome!!!!” sort of a deal.

 

Okay, this makes me laugh. Melania is doing boob belts.

Oh what a difference an ejection makes!

Which leads us to a question.

Who refused whom?

That’s like saying, Ideal Auto in Apache Junction, fresh off lying about the car they sold me, refuses to sell me another car!

    1979 should put it as a classic and may void some of the emmissions stuff. Is that all thats wrong? Bring that turd to SE Pa or your redneck buddy in Va and put some Umphhh in that pig.

    • veeshir says:

      AZ does emissions on cars back to 1966, this engine won’t pass emissions for 1967.
      Once I get it in something 66 or older I’ll worry about umphhh.

  2. HayZeus says:

    Well damn, so much for acting all nonchalant about a camshaft swap. You aren’t fooling me with this talk of parking the Caballero, though! I’m sure it’ll have a few more surprises to offer up during your next attempt to make it roadworthy… 😛

  3. veeshir says:

    I’m not attempting anything but to sell the shell. I’m done with it.
    You should have taken, “car” in which part will I be replacing next.

  4. Paco says:

    I am genuinely sorry to hear about your nightmare experience with the Caballero. I was really hoping the story would have a happy ending.

  5. Hah! “I’m thinking of taking it on Apache Trail between Apache Lake and Roosevelt,”

    I’ve been on that long dusty road! If you’re headed (east?) for the dam, watch out for that sudden right turn that takes you along the side of a VERY sickeningly-steep drop-off! Kinda like that photo, methinks!

  6. The worst trip along that cliff/canyon was when I did it backwards – i.e. went from the dam to AJ etc. I was in my Porsche 968 (windows up, of course. Dust, y’know) and drove UP that steep canyon road.

    The wide, sticky, high traction tires I had on the thing (for traction on city asphalt) were constantly slipping on the gravel – and each time it slipped the car slid TOWARDS the edge – never towards the “wall”. Scary. I’ll never do that again.

  7. Paco says:

    I drove the Trail back in 1992. Pretty hair-raising, especially when some hot dog would come careening around a bend pulling a big-ass boat. I had a flat tire not far from the dam. Still, definitely worthwhile.
