[MBZ] Fernando Alonso documentary, sort of

2021-09-14 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes
I found this 3 or 4 part thing on Amazon Prime last night, sort of a 
documentary about Fernando Alonso, watched 2 episodes (out of 4 maybe?) 
and it is pretty good.  Not a lot of drama, more about his career and 
what he has done since leaving F1 and pursuing other driving gigs.  Lot 
of good racing stuff and about him personally.  A very driven (see what 
I did there!) guy, takes his work very seriously and works hard at it. 
Seems like a decent sort though from what I have seen, and always 
wanting to learn and be good at whatever he does. Started driving carts 
at 3yo and turned into a winner at that.


Check it out.

I have this knockoff spring compressor, it works pretty well except when 
it bottoms out the threads disengage.  I had taken a spring off a 126 
and then released it, and went to compress it to put it back in and it 
would not engage.  Went to the aut parts and borrowed a couple of those 
external compressors and managed to get it compressed enough to get the 
threads engaged.  I was sweating bullets the whole time.

Re: [MBZ] AMG Is Downsizing The Cheap Stuff

2021-09-09 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes
There seems to be plenty of child slave labor in Africa to mine the 
minerals needed for batteries and such, and the Chinese are 
well-positioned to get plenty of minerals and slave labor from the 
Tollybahns, so "we" should be good on that front for awhile...  and the 
Wokesters will be able to fl good about driving an EV, because, 
you know, saving the planet while ignoring that other unpleasant stuff...


I know this verges on the political, but in fact the whole car industry 
is an extremely political kickball and has been since the 50s when the 
oil companies, the tire manufacturers, the auto (and ancillary 
materials) manufacturers transitioning from war materiel, housing 
developers, and the road builders, supported whole-heartedly by advert 
agencies and the gummint convinced the populace that moving to the 
ex-urbs and driving big shiny new cars was the Thing To Do. And today 
the oil companies are transitioning in some ways to "renewable" 
resources (never mind those batteries and wind mills and solar panels 
that can't be recycled... and the external costs of resource extraction 
and operations) to also Save the Planet (and because trial lawyers and 
politicians also find them a convenient target for a variety of reasons).


If you haven't study up on this history, a lot of it actually got 
started when US manufacturers and gummint types toured Nazi Germany back 
in the 30s and saw the autobahns and the auto industry there (championed 
of course by Herr Hitler) and sought to emulate it in the US (and the 
interstate highway system was a direct result in the 50s of the Nazi 
roads schemes of the 30s. Ike knew all about that).  It's all quite 
fascinating to look back on the marketing manipulation, giving people 
something they didn't know at that point they needed! And of course they 
needed to spend a lot of money on Stuff to get there...


Cars are one of the most "political" things in society, any discussions 
around them are also inevitably "political."  This Benz AMG stuff is 
directly tied to German gummint policies against cars in general and 
petroleum-based fuels that are now manifesting elsewhere, including the 
USA.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out, in particular 
around our old "clunkers."

2021-09-09 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes
Moving toward electron-powered cars it looks like.  More expensive, more 
complex, more problematic and inclined to fail with huge repair costs...

Re: [MBZ] Looks nice, price not crazy -- 1990 Mercedes 300 SE - $2, 700 (St. Augustine)

2021-09-09 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes
A look at the engine bay would give some indication of corrosion on the 
aluminum bits, but in general the air does not do much to the body or 
underneath stuff, that is due more to road salt (or salt water).  I have 
noticed that the salt air (which is not salt spray, but I guess there is 
some amount suspended in the air) does have some corrosive effect but it 
is not severe enough to degrade things (except for these expensive 
cheaped-out wine coolers I bought, 3 have now had corroded condenser 
units that cause the refrigerant to leak out)

Re: [MBZ] 2008 ML 320 CDI?

2021-09-08 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes
164s are a lot more complex than a 163 for no particular benefit that I 
can see.  722.9 transmission (I presume this ML has one) that is more 
expensive to fix if it kakks, the 722.6 in earlier vehicles is quite 
strong.  The 164 is more "refined" not so much the body-on-frame "truck" 
like the 163, rides better I suppose.  More of a soccer mom Mipsey mall 
runner but still a nice vehicle.  If you just want some hauling 
capacity, look for a 211 wagon, the earlier ones have the 722.6 (like my 
05E320 wagon).  The 211 is a nice ride too.  The diesel will get some 
good fuel economy and has LOTS of torque and is fun to drive for sure.

I found a 2008 ML CDI with 180K miles for sale.  That's a lot of miles for 
these newer MB.  But, I know very little about the ML.  I remember reading that 
some years are good and others have very expensive common issues.  The price of 
used cars is so high right now that I can sell my current car (2018 BMW) for as 
much as I paid for it and pocket enough to pay cash for an older daily driver.  
I really like the idea of no car payments.  But, I'm concerned this ML could be 
a money pit.

My 05ML500 (163) sometimes randomly starts screaming, the remote will 
shut it off.  Which reminds me I need to replace the batteries in the 
fob as it is dead, which will probably require the re-pairing dance to 
get it to work.

This has happened to me a few times with the SLs.
It's quite the surprise!

I saw a 126 downtown once that they'd just added an aftermarket
alarm to.  They didn't even know it had a factory alarm system.
They'd managed to set it off, and were futilely trying to turn off the
alarm with their little plastic fob.  I told them to use the key in the
door to 'unlock' it.  Whaat?

It doesn't look too bad if you are into that sort of thing.  Buy it and 
take off the boy racer bits if that would make you feel better with it, 
sell them and make some decent money off that and put it back to sorta 
normal and you'd be good.

[MBZ] OT Rant on Verizon Wireless

2021-08-29 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes
My ifōn 7 I've had for 4yr or so has bricked itself, refuses to boot 
up.  I don't know if something in the device fried, or some software 
upgrade attempt gorked it.  I've tried all the tricks to see if I could 
get it to live, after several attempts it actually connected to iToonz 
on a Mac and it wanted to reload and restore itself and something 
started happening but then that seemed to go off into the ether, and 
nothing useful happened.  I was going to see about going to the apple 
store to see if the genii could unbrick it but they are closed now for 
covids based on who knows what.  Oh no, wait, they are actually open 
again.  hmmm.


So I go to the VZW store today to see about getting another phone, which 
the website said they had at the store (iFōn 11 not the new 12) but then 
the store was closed today, the only day it is closed the whole month of 
August and Sept for some reason. Sigh.  So I try to do a chat with 
someone on the VZW website and before we can continue with the 
transaction, they need to send a msg to my bricked phone.  This is the 
only way they can do anything.  WTF.


Then I look at my account and somehow my ex-wife has her email on it, 
even though I get bill notices and such on mine.  So I try to change it 
and IT WANTS TO SEND A MSG TO MY BRICKED PHONE!!! WTF???


I did stop by Costco and they can get an 11 but with less memory and not 
a color I particularly want (not that it matters I guess) but 5-7 days 
to order and deliver.  VZW says 2 day deliver if I could actually buy 
the damn thing.  So I guess I will have to go to the store again 
tomorrow and deal with that pain, and still wait for it to be sent.  
Interestingly earlier the website said they had these in the stores for 
pickup but now apparently not.


And now they only do monthly payments for the cost of the thing, over 
24months.

I think I might actually have that movie on a VHS tape someone gave me, 
somewhere, I should try to dig it out.  It was a classic though.

In between the shills for “New Shepard” swag, apparently.

Never watched a rocket launch where they were selling T-shirts and hoodies with 
the logo during the countdown. This goes a long way to make me feel comfortable 
that this is a viable means to put someone/something into orbit.

Next thing you know they’ll be selling advertising space on the booster.

Re: [MBZ] W211 Seat Blowout

2021-08-24 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes
That would not be a bad deal for a 211.  Pull a seat from a junker or 
just put a sheepskin on it and call it good


Can it be fitted with a drunkometer?
