Coffee And Morning Thoughts for the day.......

Recommended Posts

I have a gut feeling that with what is happening in the auto industry these days that the old cars, being a lot of them are already valuable, are now going to go thru the stratosphere hitting astronomical prices. I'm talking the kind of money you can retire on. Even 70's 80's vintage are going to be in greater demand. Watch over your second gen truck.... nice ones are only starting to go up in price.

 

That's my thoughts or my jet fuel coffee........Mopar Man drinks 90 weight with 5 spoons sugar lol :thumb1:

There really is a shortage of 2nd gen trucks up here. The sell quick and hard to get ahold of. Even the most raty looking 2nd Gen can go for good price yet just because the engine still runs.

I think there is money to be made if you know them well enough to find them in the rough for a good price and then fix them.  Auto industry is seeing tighter smog restriction requirements, more than ever before and it is beginning to affect sales.

Like I've been informed by @dieselautopower they now have a tuners to just simply turn of the EGR and reduce the amount of regens that occur. No need to delete anything. So visually it passes emissions testing just the devices are logically disabled and no error codes thrown. This will open lots of doors for newer generations.

Throw you some Amaretto and Irish cream in there and you will have the coffee that made chickens famous.

Dripley drinks irish cream straight and I tried to tell him it's better in coffee, but won't listen....:)

 

So you are saying there is a tuner that virtually eliminates or by passes the problematic emissions? That's got to be cool! If it's true then mileage numbers should increase.

 

Another question.... why hasn't the common rail fuel system owners been speaking much or posting much about them. Are they afraid to speak the truth about it for fear of rapid devaluation in their trucks. Or is it that a lot of these guys just go trade in every 100,000 and don't care?

 

Dripley had all his wrenches made with custom handles....''honey hand me the 10mm drum stick please''. LOL

I was responding to the coffee part if this thread. Get ahout 4 or 5 cups in you and it will bypass your EGR.

Haven't there been other tuners that tweak the emission systems on vehicles that the government took criminal and/or civil action against?

That's what I'm thinking, either electronic delete or mechanical delete you still get in trouble right?

 

Coffee ready.... gets my EGR working required by a.o.c.

Electronic delete I love because you just saving all the part for the emission test. "Lookie, see all my parts are there." Truck passes. Electronically it does nothing. 

 

Coffee wise I do a double shot of half and half and a teaspoon of sugar. Pour that coffee down my throat. EGR can just lay there and look pretty. I wouldn't want all that carbon pumped back into my engine.

Mike, is your valley getting crowded like it is around here? Man, I'm seeing nuts people, drivers everywhere and very few cops anywhere.

Nope. Very quiet. Low traffic, No police presence most of the time.

 

Salmon fishing was a bust. Steelhead fishing was a bust. Now everyone is trying rafting that seems weak. Just quiet out here.

They must be from that the last group that fled from California.

Here in California the police are considered a revenue generator for the city/county/state so there are a lot of them around.

You know I haven't registered my slide in camper for ten years now. I do carry the title with me. Just seems that without wheels it should be considered cargo like in California. So far many officers have driven by.... one even waved at me pulling out of a rest stop and we were the only ones there on the Oregon coast. It funny..... I made sure to park soo the expired tag was very visible, but he only waved.

 

Tags on the truck are always current.

Yes I know.... a lot of money hungry tactics practiced these days. You really got to listen to your gut feeling to tell when to stay away and when someone is like family.

AOC would have something to say about spewing that particulate matter out your exhaust pipe. I don't think a simple EGR would be very effective.

I have noticed used vehicle prices rise steadily too.Besides becoming rare, I think the older vehicles seem to go up in value because a new truck will cost you 50k give or take! A new-used will be 30k! All of a sudden that 20 year old truck looks good for 10k...Keep a few K on the side for upgrades and Good to go.

What do 2nd gens with 200k miles go for in your neck of the woods?

 

https://honolulu.craigslist.org/big/cto/d/tyro-2002-dodge-2nd-generation-cummings/6935504928.html

Not sure what this guy is smoking! Drugs are bad! 25k obo!

Thats extreme, but you will see most of them above 10k with high miles and beat up here

Nice ones will be asking 15k i guess.

 

Bought mine for 7K over 8 years ago with 111k mi. Got a great deal as brakes were fried and scary shaky to drive and no one wants an automatic.
