New Poll added!

I was shocked to read a comment on youtube where a guy said women have no business driving a Muscle Car!

I thought I'd add a poll and see how you readers feel about that comment.
Please be honest, of course the outcome will have no impact on me, I'm driving my car no matter what people think!

1977 Trans Am Firebird

This is exactly like my old Trans Am. I loved that car!

I drove mine from Idaho to Texas and back. The air conditioner went out about 2 hours after we left Bay City Texas, heading home, it was August. Not the best time to lose the air in Texas!

My friend and I thought by the time we reached the panhandle of Texas we had lost about 10 pounds each from sweating out butts off! We took off as many articles of clothing that the law allowed and we stopped at almost every Dairy Queen drive in along the way and ordered the largest iced tea on the menu!

That is one of my most memorable road trips to date.

I ended up having to sell the Trans Am for a Mom car. I'm so embarrassed to even tell you that I traded it in on a Monte Carlo! I cried as I signed the title and the salesman kept asking me, are you sure you want to do this?

I drove the Monte Carlo for 3 months and hated every minute of it! I sold it and bought a brand new Toyota Supra, Red and loads of fun.

I do miss the Trans Am.

1967 Ford Mustang Fastback- Oh Baby!

See why I'd rather have the real thing? Oh what a fabulous car!

I have a friend who owns one, not the one pictured, but I'll get the picture for you and post it soon. He will drive up my street . I hear the rumble as he drives very slowly up the hill to my house and then he sits out in the street next to my driveway and rev's the engine. I just smile because I know the poor guy would just love to take his baby out onto the highway and let her cruise at full speed, but he just can't bring himself to do it! He's a state patrolman. Ha Ha.

Now me on the other hand, I make sure he is nowhere in sight and I let my Cougar do her thing! I've been lucky so far (knock wood) he hasn't caught me yet, but he'd write me a ticket so fast it would make my head spin, and he'd laugh the whole time! I wouldn't care though because I never let him forget that I know what it feels like to drive my car the way it was meant to be driven, he only gets to dream about what his car can do!

    $5,500,000.00 Mustang for sale

    Mustang number 100212

    Have you read about or heard of the controversial Mustang number 100212? It's interesting to read about, but I don't see the mystery or reason for controversy. The $5,500,000.00 Mustang for sale is the first convertible Mustang that rolled off the assembly line produced for retail sale to the public. It was not the first convertible Mustang built, there were other's built for promotional purposes or for testing...these were not produced for sale to the public.

    It's very clear and simple to see that Mustang number 100212 was in fact, the first convertible Mustang produced for retail to the public. It's factual and backed up with plenty of verifiable documentation.

    Save Fuel - Top Ten Tips

    Here are some great tips that can help you save fuel. If you combine as many of these tips as possible, the fuel savings should really add up!

    1. Slow Down

    One of the best ways to save gas is to simply reduce your speed. As speed increases, fuel economy decreases exponentially. If you one of the "ten-over on the freeway" set, try driving the speed limit for a few days. You'll save a lot of fuel and your journey won't take much longer. (Just be sure you keep to the right, so you won't impede the less-enlightened.)

    2. Check your tire pressure

    Under-inflated tires are one of the most commonly ignored causes of crummy MPG. Tires lose air due to time (about 1 psi per month) and temperature (1 psi for every 10 degree drop); under-inflated tires have more rolling resistance, which means you need to burn more gas to keep your car moving. Buy a reliable tire gauge and check your tires at least once a month. Be sure to check them when they are cold, since driving the car warms up the tires along with the air inside them, which increases pressure and gives a falsely high reading. Use the inflation pressures shown in the owner's manual or on the data plate in the driver's door jamb.

    3. Check your air filter

    A dirty air filter restricts the flow of air into the engine, which harms performance and economy. Air filters are easy to check and change; remove the filter and hold it up to the sun. If you can't see light coming through it, you need a new one. Consider a K&N or similar "permanent" filter which is cleaned rather than changed; they are much less restrictive than throw-away paper filters, plus they're better for the environment.

    4. Accelerate with care

    Jack-rabbit starts are an obvious fuel-waster -- but that doesn't mean you should crawl away from every light. If you drive an automatic, accelerate moderately so the transmission can shift up into the higher gears. Stick-shifters should shift early to keep the revs down, but don't lug the engine -- downshift if you need to accelerate. Keep an eye well down the road for potential slowdowns. If you accelerate to speed then have to brake right away, that's wasted fuel.

    5. Hang with the trucks

    Ever notice how, in bad traffic jams, cars seem to constantly speed up and slow down, while trucks tend to roll along at the same leisurely pace? A constant speed keeps shifting to a minimum -- important to those who have to wrangle with those ten-speed truck transmissions -- but it also aids economy, as it takes much more fuel to get a vehicle moving than it does to keep it moving. Rolling with the big rigs saves fuel (and aggravation).

    6. Get back to nature

    Consider shutting off the air conditioner, opening the windows and enjoying the breeze. It may be a tad warmer, but at lower speeds you'll save fuel. That said, at higher speeds the A/C may be more efficient than the wind resistance from open windows and sunroof. If I'm going someplace where arriving sweaty and smelly could be a problem, I bring an extra shirt and leave early so I'll have time for a quick change.

    7. Back off the bling

    New wheels and tires may look cool, and they can certainly improve handling. But if they are wider than the stock tires, chances are they'll create more rolling resistance and decrease fuel economy. If you upgrade your wheels and tires, keep the old ones. I have fancy sport rims and aggressive tires on my own car, but I keep the stock wheels with a good narrower-tread performance tire in the garage. For long road trips, the stock wheels give a smoother ride and better economy.

    8. Clean out your car

    If you're the type who takes a leisurely attitude towards car cleanliness -- and I definitely fall into that category -- periodically go through your car and see what can be tossed out or brought into the house. It doesn't take much to acquire an extra 40 or 50 lbs. of stuff, and the more weight your car has to lug around, the more fuel it burns.

    9. Downsize

    If you're shopping for a new car, it's time to re-evaluate how much car you really need. Smaller cars are inherently more fuel-efficient, and today's small cars are roomier than ever -- one of my favorite subcompacts, the Nissan Versa, has so much interior room that the EPA classifies it as a mid-size. Worried about crash protection? The automakers are designing their small cars to survive crashes with bigger vehicles, and safety features like side-curtain airbags and electronic stability control are becoming commonplace in smaller cars.

    10. Don't Drive

    Not a popular thing to say on a car site, I know, but the fact is that if you can avoid driving, you'll save gas. Take the train, carpool, and consolidate your shopping trips. Walking or biking is good for your wallet and your health. And before you get in your car, always ask yourself: "Is this trip really necessary?"

    Back online!

    I'm sorry for the lack of posts recently. I was offline for several days due to a family emergency.

    I came home to find my Cougar with two flat seems that the valve stems are faulty! I'm just thankful I wasn't driving when the stems decided to break.

    Now that I've updated you on my absence, I will post some interesting info!

    1968 Cougar XR7....She Purrrrrs

    Here's my Cat

    Tuesday, July 22, 2008

    Playboy 1968 New car profiles....

    "Playboy 1968 New

    car profiles , Cougar

    being the Classiest"

    Cat's do have nine lives!

    My "cat" is a 1968 Cougar XR7 - Grecian Gold, Cragar Wheels, Flowmaster's, Edelbrock carburetor....I could go on and on about her, she's a beauty and I will post pictures very soon!

    Anyway, last August I was out for a cruise, it was the "Hot August Night's" car show weekend and my friend and I were having a great time...that is until I smelled something burning! I started to freak out and babied my Cougar all the way home...praying that she would make it! She didn't let me down...I literally pulled into the driveway and no sooner had I gotten her parked when she died.

    My friend and I looked at each other and said "No Way!" ...we were blown away that the cat made it home and just died like that!

    It turned out that the wiring rubbed against the radiator and burned up a good length of crucial wiring. So there she sat all winter...until last week when I was able to get the wiring fixed and then true to form, my faithful cat roared right back to life!

    I was soooo happy to have the Cougar running again, I waited a total of about 20 minutes after the mechanic left the drive and I climbed into the drivers seat, rolled down the windows and headed to town to get the tags registered's the part I shouldn't tell you...I drove it without a new oil change and it had sat for 11 months....I know, My Bad!

    It was so worth it though! I love driving that Cougar! :)

    1967 Pontiac GTO

    This car was produced with the hope to gain appeal with the younger market of car buyer's in the 1960's.

    Pontiac put a 6.3 litre V8 engine into the mid-sized Tempest shell, creating a cheap, fast car.

    Pontiac's marketing team was very surprised when the GTO became massively popular...but just look at this fabulous car! What's not to love?!

    In 1969 they fitted it with a 6.5 litre V8 which could kick out 366bhp... and "The Judge" was born!

    Motorhead vs Motor Head

    Ok...I do know that motor head can mean many different things. Let's get one thing straight right now, Motor Head Lady does not imply that I am a professional "motor head" giver :-) Those of you who know what I'm talking about should be clear on that subject, those of you who do not know what I am referring to, well it's just best that you don't know!

    There is also the band Motörhead ...this isn't them either...although they do seriously ROCK!

    Now, there are also people who think of a "motor head" as a "speed freak" and with regard to this blog and my personality, I suppose I fall into that category at times because I do like to drive fast, but I'm not a "speed freak" in terms of using the drug!

    When I hear the term "motor head" I instantly think of someone who loves cars, loves driving them, loves looking at them, loves working on them...just freakin loves cars!

    So now hopefully, you understand what type of "motor head" I am and I would love for you to bookmark this blog for future reading.
