FranktoidTM No. 26 - Wiping Out Low Prices

 It is pretty much common knowledge that almost everything is getting more expensive now-a-days. Unless you're living under a rock, you have noticed. All you have to do is pay attention to the stuff you regularly purchase and watch the prices. This appears to be a two tier approach because if the price has not noticeably gone up then the product appears to have shrunk. This is referred to as "shrinkflation". Case in point: The other day I bought lunch at McDonald's and my Filet-O-Fish sandwich was literally the size of a slider. Even the boxes that hold them have gotten smaller. Excuses a ..read more

2024 - A Knew Year

It is once again a new year and it has become sort of a tradition here at Frank's Classic Car Blog that I try and predict what lies ahead in the upcoming twelve months. If my past predictions are any indication it would seem that I just might know what is in store for both donkeys, elephants, and the rest of the "basket of deplorables". There is a lot of fear mongering going on and tons of conspiracy theories floating around, mainly about aliens and AI. Everyone seems to know this or know that and most folks are getting to the point that they don't know what to believe. Without doing a deep di ..read more

 Wow, time really flies! Seems like just yesterday I was making New Year promises that I wouldn't keep. I'm starting to sound like a politician! Well I can honestly say that I got absolutely nothing done on Project Yellowjacket. I did manage to buy more parts for it and squirrel them away but that's about it. As far as the blog goes I have decided to completely turn it over to AI, that way I can claim plausible deniability about all of it's content. I mean AI is going to take over everything anyways, right? By the look of things I think the White House has already converted to AI. Switchi ..read more

 Birds of a feather flock together, that would best sum up my friends, acquaintances,and people I knew growing up and especially during my mid to late teens. We ate, drank, and slept cars. Duane had (and still has) a '67 Pontiac GTO with a 400 cubic inch V-8, tri-power carburetors and a 4-speed manual trans. Jim had a '67 Chevy Camaro with a small block 350 equipped with a polished tunnel ram with dual quads. Bob had a '67 Chevy Chevelle with a 327 and a 4-speed, Paul had a '70 Dodge Challenger with a 440 and slapstick automatic, Zeke had a '67 Chevy El Camino with a 327 wearing big 'n li ..read more

FranktoidTM No. 24 - AI Bloggers, The Future or Fiction?

 Sometimes I really wonder about this blog. I strive to make it free of click bait, sponsored content, and "guest articles" which is really just someone trying to sell something. With the seeming rapid advancement of artificial intelligence, or AI for short, how long will it be before all the folks who are actually employed to write get replaced by AI? Fortunately I do not rely on my blogging for income, I do it as a hobby. I know, hard to believe that I actually enjoy writing, go figure. Now AI might be able to churn out a fictional story or two, and maybe some technical papers and histo ..read more

North Main - Chapter Three

The very first car that I purchased, with the help from my dad, was a 1962 Triumph Spitfire convertible. It was also my first project car as it was not running when I bought it and needed extensive work to make it road worthy again. I can't remember how much I paid for it but it wasn't much. Everything I bought for this car came from a junkyard, including a "new" engine for it. Back then the local junkyards were literal treasure troves. Triumphs were not that popular but I had no problems locating the parts I needed. The Spitfire was still quite a ways from being road worthy during the time I ..read more
