Having fun and enjoying yourself is one thing but when it is at someone else's expense then it is not so cool. Obviously if he enjoyed being here then most likely he would still be posting.

Well damn, as far as I know he didn't die, just lost a couple teeth.

Why are you so down on him?

In the good old days, when he much younger, he came here asking for ideas/opinions, he didn't (doesn't) have to do things my way (or yours).

Now that he is older he has gone his own way, whatever direction that is, still playing with mopars, but apparently had enough of Moparts.

Sometimes I think maybe he is right, in the meantime I linger here.


It takes gasoline to interest me.

I thought about it some more and remember I was daily driving most of the same type of "normally thought of as non-enthusiast class" vehicle (for instance 84 5th avenue, 72 Polara, 78 Fury Wagon, etc) during that timeframe in the '90s....but our plans for the vehicles were different.

I got the Polara, put new exhaust on it, pulled the gas tank and soldered a pinhole in the float so the fuel sender would work, pulled axle shafts to grease the dry wheel bearings, got rid of the plastic timing gear at 75,000 miles before it failed, advanced the cam a few degrees for more grunt, etc...then drove it everywhere. In fact I still have it.....

Jamie was not super concerned with stuff like whether the gas gauge worked or if the wheel bearings were dry. He was much more into running them as hard as possible until major issues surfaced, doing burnouts until the tires blew and tore the quarter panels up as seen in the embedded video, and stuff like that.

I always saw his activities as almost a "demo derby minus three".
Once I thought I understood where he was coming from, one time I tried to convince him to poke the exhaust through the hood on one old thread, but
he wasn't having it (too much work, I guess).

I also vaguely remember him saying either he, or his GF, got a job at an Amazon.

No ill will here, people are just people.

Some people aren't going to be happy until everyone else is just as miserable as they are.

Same ones would complain if you hung them with a new rope


Life is simple.
Just because someone likes something you don't . It doesnt mean you have to. If we all liked the same thing.
The world would be boring as he77.

I love stories of redneck engineering. I have a buddy that lived in a tee pee for almost 3 years while building his house.

I'd have thought the exact same thing but there's one major problem with that line of thinking: Dude was just NOT that clever. But if that were the truth, then he should sue Larry the Cable Guy. Larry done stole his act! eek

It had nothing to do with the fact that he was into "alternate" Chrysler vehicles. Most of us here appreciate pretty much everything Mother Mopar made.
It wasn't the fact that Jamie was malicious. Quite the opposite. He had a heart of gold like most simple, country-folk do.

I too believe he has some sort of learning disability, comprehension issue or perhaps that all-important missing chromosome. He was (and may still be) his own worst enemy.

If a fella had the wherewithal to come on here, fill out the forms to join and ASK QUESTIONS for advice.... you would think that at least ONCE.... that person would actually TAKE that advice.

But no. No sir. Time and time again it was "Hey guys, I didn't put wheel bearing grease in my wheel bearings because I couldn't afford any and had to get to the Piggly Wiggly before it closed so I could get a gallon of YooHoo for the missus. Now the front wheel bearings are powder. What should I do?

Several people would reply with good advice on how to replace bearings, how to pack them, what grease to use; step-by-step instructions....

Two days later: "Hey guys, I've been driving on dry wheel bearings for three days now and the noise is getting intense. I'm going to keep driving though. I think I'm through the worst of it!"


I began ignoring his posts. It was a waste of time to try and point the kid down the right path. He'd never take your advice. He'd never consider logic, or reason or the fact that he's asking a place with a collective knowledge of several thousand years. Like.... why would WE bother anymore? Literally beating a dead horse.

But people like him survive by praying on the heart strings of those "bleeding heart" types....

I think you are probably right, or at least I can see it that way as well.

It doesn't seem worth the real estate in my mind anymore, and those entertained by his antics can see him on youtube.

He thought up projects and then did them. All details aside, that was admirable.


Trying to enjoy life!

Mark is doing just fine....those two guys just did not have the right "look" for most people on moparts. One thing I noticed was both sold parts, and sold them cheap, real cheap, and then got trashed because the part did not have a lifetime warranty. Mark sold a ton of my stuff, never a bad deal with him, and I still offer a lifetime warranty on anything that came from me.

I guess because the other guys he used to jaw jack back and forth about meaningless stuff don't post anymore either. Another guy that comes to mind that would rag on guys like Jamie was Billy B Bad or Bad Billy? Guy had a silver Super Bee, nice car but he'd always rag on anybody who discussed C bodies or trucks. Seemed like he had issues as eventually he started airing his own personal dirty laundry here and didn't post much after that either.
