We Bought a '57 Chevy During The Epic 2,000 Mile Road Trip: Finnegan's Garage Ep.144

The adventure continues! We made it from California to Texas and planned to make it to the east Texas state line but got sidetracked by the site of '57 Chevys behind a fence. There were so many of them! Hardtops, post cars, wagons etc. We met the man, Dickie, who owned them all. He spent his life restoring '57 Chevys and '40 Fords and these were the leftover parts cars. Newbern fell in love and struck a deal to buy a sweet hardtop that we'll have to come back for. We also briefly went shopping at Camping World but struck out on our quest for an RV-specific GPS system for Lincoln Hawk. Stay tuned for the conclusion of this journey and the big reveal of our new project boat, which we've been towing on golf cart tires behind Lincoln Hawk.

Anyone please --- Is it abnormal for my 2020 GMC Sierra SLT, 35K miles, CITY AND HIGHWAY drive only, no salt, no mud, no sand, dealership has done all oil changes/service, to possibly need a new IDLER ARM and PITMAN ARM ? I'm hearing a popping sound from the front when I turn to the right going slow, I only hear it when turning slow, hard to tell if I can feel it or not in the steering wheel.
GaryLordsWayMinistry
Real truck drivers listen to the motor and learn to shift without it at all, the only time we use it is to start stop and on super heavy loads and on step grades with heavy loads we double clutch a little if we have to. But you hang in there rookie, you'll get it after awhile, just take practice and a lot of miles under the belt or in the seat of your pants. I think old DC Dave there is going to cry.

Get a backup camera mirror, that way you can always see what's going on behind you at all times while having full use of the GPS.

Lmao, bruh has a bunch of broken cars that are just gonna sit their cause he doesn’t want to sell... how about you let people take all those broken down cars, and let them rebuild them. More classic cars on the road in the end, better than sitting in a junkyard for another few decades

When registered as rv you are no longer a truck. I drive a semi pulling giant custom fifth wheel for owner. The look on their faces when you go thru non truck lines and tell them to look at what’s painted on side of sleeper “ registered as private recreational vehicle” priceless. Driving solo had police come after me skipping weigh station. They run tag and read lettering and just wave and leave. Drove passed The Thong Sunday and Monday. Love the videos.

I got that extendable breaker bar with the 2 sided deep lug nut sockets and keep in my truck box with the half ton jack for helping people out or whatever, it's never failed to simply squeeze the nutz off gently.... wait... anyway it works good, highly recommended.
