MY OCCASIONAL WHINING about the stalled 911 project has inspired a number of readers to contact me—offering help finding parts and with wrenching, telling me how much worse it could be and, most helpfully, saying to stop whining and get out to the garage. In the grand scheme, a rotten old 911 is a good problem to have. I have been out there, making little bits of progress when the kids are asleep. And even if I’m not substantially closer—it doesn’t feel hopeless anymore—I’ve put thoughts of just sending it to a mechanic out of my head again. That’s how the project car gods get ya! My personal issues notwithstanding, this issue should inspire you to spend some time in the garage this spring. It certainly has me imagining my…

about the cover

The most important elements of Brendan McAleer’s feature story on East Vancouver-based fabricator Adam Trinder are impossible to photograph—how do you illustrate Trinder’s intuitive understanding of how things work, which, coupled with years of trial and error and untold hours of experience, make him a master of his craft? Fortunately, Rachel Pick’s photos give an invaluable look at the more tangible side of Trinder’s operation; she takes us inside his one-man shop starting on page 12. The taps and dies shown on the cover of this special DIY issue are just a few of the tools that help him do his thing. As Trinder will tell you, tools alone do not a fabricator make. But they are important. And anyway, they’re are awfully cool to look at.…

some disassembly required

“What are you going to do with that?” … “That” was a greasy Chrysler automatic transmission of indeterminate origin, sourced for free from a friend who wanted it out of his garage. And the answer, as my long-suffering wife, Bridget, well knew, was either “nothing” or “take it apart,” and most likely a combination of the two over the course of several years. I split the difference: “I’m not sure yet.” She nodded, perhaps not thrilled but at least understanding. Car and house projects are my thing; she enjoys home improvement, too, but her hands-on joy is derived more from gardening. I try not to question the rationality of fussing over tomato plants for six months when perfectly good tomatoes are sitting at the corner market any more than she questions the…

revved up

“FOR FUN’S SAKE!” CAR LIFE, JOHN L. STEIN AND MARK VAUGHN, MARCH 11 Nice pieces. I’m old enough to have not only had the originals of both of these bikes (Honda Monkey and Super Cub C125 ABS) but to have gotten to assemble them new at the Honda shop. Yep, that old! This June will be 50 years I’ve been repairing Hondas for a living. We have had the new Monkey for a while now but just got our first Super Cub. I have my old 1959 Cub to compare it to the new one; the old Cub is dusty as it’s been sitting in storage for years. I think they’ve done a good job on the new one. Please keep up the great job you’re doing. Now … could you…
