A 28 is huge. I bet that thing wags like crazy.

It's quite good on sticky tires, it's a handful on all seasons.

Got a aux to bluetooth adapter for the iris car and stashed it in the ash tray, charged it when it came in, and so far with 20 hours on it, it is still working.

Foci and Neons, my brother from another mother. Had both in different gens and they're way better cars than they get credit for....as long as you skip the automatics. 

In reply to damarble :

I have owned about every configuration of neons imaginable. 

The foci we have are autos, Simi reasonable filter/fluid changes and the better half can run them well north of 200k.

Decided I needed a motorcycle trailer when I got a killer deal on one. Works good as is, new lights and wheel bearings. With some updating should be golden.

toolbox is on. Heading out for a test drive to see if I need to put mudflaps on the car or trailer.

Now I got a idea of what kind of protection the trailer needs.

The neon and trailer needs mud flaps. Chains needs fixed, tires are super sketchy. I'm also gonna move the ramp around and add more expanded metal. If I get real frisky might make some panels for the fender to body. 

 

17 year old tires are being replaced when new ones show up.

In reply to Professor_Brap (Forum Supporter) :

Since a trailer needs to fit any tow car that comes around, instead of mud flaps on this Neon, how about a front trash deflector (aerodynamic style) on the trailer?

We talked about that, I'm unsure where to even start on designing something like that so it's not a big air brake.

oil change on the car, coolant flush, and adjust the parking brake. Took the motorcycle trailer for it's maiden voyage with new tires with a bike on it. This trailer is the ticket compared to a utility trailer. 

Small update.

Omni: gearing up to start body work

Focus: had to replace blower motor resistor and clean up blower motor. The vents and box had a bunch of screws, receipts and candy in them. 

White trash: got my block back, got nabbed out of my trailer at the gas station on the way home. Thanks Columbus. 

Tabbie: hit this milestone. 158k under my ownership.

Been getting tires checked, brakes inspected, fluids changed to get all the cars ready for spring. Drove white trash to work and boy did it vibrate till tires got warmed up. It needs belts pretty bad, so need to get them ordered.
