    Hi All, I'm looking for one (1) 620 stock steelie wheel. The 620 wheel has the little openings/slits on them as pictured. Just one. I'm in the central valley of California.


  3. Those trucks should be reversed. This is offensive.🤣
  4. Have fun!! I haven't there since 1986 while living in the Pacific while my dad was in the Air Force. Fun place to visit!!

    Keep it. Someone will want it.
  6. Was it the one with the starting bid of $.99?? I saw it and was watching it myself.
  7. oooooh, that kingcab 720 looks clean...at least from that angle LOL. ST wheels. Cool as topper. Chrome bumper. Wish that I lived closer.
  8. Some pics of the rides that did show up and some award winners Best Muscle VVVVVV (from Bakersfield) Best Classic Truck Best Fullsize Truck Best Suspension VVVVVVV Best Minitruck VVVVVV Best Classic Car VVVVVVV Best Lowrider VVVVV Best Paint VVVVVVV Best Compact Car VVVVVVV Best Speciality Best of Show VVVVVV (from Lemoore)
  9. I definitely wasn't hoping to draw people from south of the Grapevine or north of Stockton/Sacramento. I did get one car show that showed up from Bakersfield (2.5 hr drive). They saw it on EventBrite and said "we've never been to Merced, let's ride." Got another one from Lemoore (1.5hr drive). Their car got best of show...a RHD Jaguar. Definitely was hoping for some local draw. I even avoided the Turlock Swap Meet this year which is 25 miles away, so the conditions were ripe for a big turnout. Meh, hopefully next year.
  10. I don't want one that bad. Hoping to get lucky at Walmart or Target [fingers crossed].
  11. Anybody seen the hammered Nissan Hardbody D21 in Cali yet? I've checked several Walmarts and Targeets in the Central Valley. No luck yet. Drat.
  12. Went from 55 vehicles in 2018 to only 23 in 2019 ☹️ I thought a fundraiser for kids would be a no brainer. I guess that I just got lucky last year. Perfect weather? Check, had it. Not a cloud in sight this day. Food options? Check, had them. Taco truck and concession stand. Low entry fee? Check, only $20 plus online preregistration. Dash plaques? Check, had them for the first 50 entries. Awards? Yep, 15 different awards. Location? Yep, less than a mile from Hwy 99 and the park had trees and grass and even a playground and clean restrooms. Oh well. Maybe next year will be better.
  13. If any of you make it to Merced for this, be sure to find me and say "what's up".
  14. Just bumping this as we get closer. This coming Sunday. Hope to see you down in Merced. No rain expected, so should be a great day!!!!
  15. We'll have the following awards this year: Best of Show, Top 3, Best Fullsize Truck, Minitruck, Classic Car, Classic Truck, Principal's Choice, Lowrider, Paint, Suspension, Speciality, Fullsize Car, Compact Car, Muscle Car. We've even got it listed on Eventbrite for easy registration https://www.eventbrite.com/e/kickin-it-2019-car-truck-show-tickets-71963132667 We'll have a concession stand, a taco truck, and some raffle prizes. Roll-in for judging ends at 12:00pm and judging begins at that time. Will probably start awards around 1:30pm. Come down and support a high school boy's soccer program!!!
  16. Thanks for the tips that I'll keep in mind for 2021!! 👊
  17. Mine passed and that's good enough for me. I'll deal with it again in September 2021 LOL
  18. [coming from a non-engine guy..aka me] So my mechanic replaced two hoses and cleaned out some other hoses and did some adjustments on the air filter holder. That was about it.
  19. Finally passed. No cat needed. Whew, good for another 2 years.
  20. Yes, the CO was too high on the final test at 25mph at 1700rpm. It passed every test including visual. By "cat" do you mean the catalytic converter? The guy at the test shop stated that this wasn't the issue : \
  21. My 86' 720 ST king cab failed smogged on the last test....25mph emissions. My mechanic worked on some vacuum lines. Then, the 720 failed again, so I've used my one free re-test. The testing site suggested the EGR valve. Anyone have any ideas??? Just one test I need to pass ARGH. I should add that I'm not much of an engine guy, so if you suggest something, it'll be for me to pass along to my mechanic, thanks : )
  22. Cool ass pics that you shared, thanks for taking the time to post
  23. Thanks for sharing pics!!!! Very cool rides there.
