What is Minux Up To?

Recommended Posts

The grey controller sparked some interest in what I am up to, so here it goes -

 

Traveled the World, sailed quite a bit, built a family, and (more or less) got out of video games. Recent video games pick ups would be the Neo Geo Mini and a pre-order in for Turbo Grafx Mini..

 

My recent passion project, finishing a total restoration last week -

Nice... is that an 89? My grandfather had one just like it.

 

I have a 2002 Crown Victoria LX that I inherited from my grandfather in 2004. I just sits in the garage, has just under 50k miles on it.

Nah, my Jaguar days are OBE at this point.

Heh... OBE. You sound like a Government employee.

The car is a 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis LS with every option (leather, sound, etc.)

 

Total repairs were significant -

 

- Swapped out rear air, replacing shocks and coils all around

- New brakes - calipers, pads, rotors, lines

- New power steering pump

- New radiator

- New alternator

- New windshield wiper motors

- New power window regulators and door lock actuators

- New plugs, coils, wires

- Put a new head unit in with Bluetooth and clearer than my modern car, going 80s/90s with an Alpine, really popping the vintage JBL speakers

- New TV cable and bushings

- Drained transmission fluid, replaced filter, and new pan with drain plug

- Quite a few other things that escape me

 

Yeah, man, 36K miles, and my weekend car. Awesome time capsule. Was my grandfather's and one of those cars I always wanted.

Forget another big item, headers on back stainless steel exhaust. Not duals, because I do not like loud!

Very nice... classy car. That had the Mustang 5.0 EFI motor in it...

 

Your grandfather would be proud.
