Does your car smoke ?

Recommended Posts

I have a little thin smoke from under my car. I only notice it when I’m in slow traffic. Is a little smoke normal for a 1969 car ? 

My 67 Jaguar E type & my 1960 Caddy Eldorado roadster don’t smoke.

like smoke from the exhaust or under the mid section? it could be your Transmission getting too hot, overfilled and spilling on to the exhaust or could be a bad rear transmission seal.

Ooooh Ooooh!  Can you post pics of the Jaguar and Caddy?  The Jaguar is the sexiest car ever designed and is my favorite.

the SHAGUAR is a 1967 type 1. I had to have the covered headlights. She’s really tiny. You feel like a mongoose in a herd of elephants between SUVs but she’s fast & very agile so I can slalom the elephants. Only mod I did was add Bluetooth. I had the electronics updated and she’s as reliable as a Toyota, amazing.

Oh my gosh, I've always had a thing for a red 1959 Cadillac convertible but a very close second was the '60 and years fits the bill. I would LOVE to cruise around in that thing.

I love the Caddy, great cruiser but it’s terrifying over 70 mph. Cruising at night is just magical. I added disc brakes, seat belts, AC, Bluetooth, cupholder, & LED headlights. We named her Flo after the owner of Flo’s V8 Cafe in CARS movie.

 

 

Man, that thing looks like a waterbed!  LOL

Seems like the GT350 is leaking from the back of trans but only after it’s lifted up on flatbed. The new power steering is also leaking. So she’s at shop now fixing that & adding LED headlights. Adding new seats soon too.
