Default Random blast from the past.





So, who even remembers this car, much less these pics?

Y'all are also welcome to share pics from the forum from long ago as well.

I don't remember those pics, but do remember your Taurus, Ford Boy. LOL.

So do tell us about the cart corral.


I might as well add my photo... from this thread https://www.gmforum.com/general-gm-c...ctures-239304/

This was my home built engine puller using 4x4'* and a $30 boat winch to hoist the engine out.

Which Taurus? The gold GL or the white SHO? Truth be told, the GL was my mother'* and the SHO was my father'*. I have only personally had the Tempo and PA.

& How hard was it to re-install?
I would assume by now you have improved the design..LOL!!!

The tiki torch lighting was a nice option, no need to worry about extension cords getting in the way.

I used it about 1.5 years ago to do my L36/L67 swap.

The engine/trans in the photo was hanging overnight with no issues. The strap itself is rated for 1100lbs.

Reinstall was easier than pulling it. It just plops right in.

Improved? No, I did remove the bottom pieces of it, but now it sits out behind the shed unused because last year I splurged and got a real cherry picker for my S10 project.
