    Been forever since I posted.......i have re-painted all of the spots I burnt through the clear and applied three more coats of clear. I have ordered the new weatherstrip for under the hood and should have it Tuesday. New hydraulic cylinders are being ordered Monday. I have obligated myself to finish as much as possible because the 47' is now registered to attend Allentown 2016. It might not be finished, but will be there under its own power.

    34-mile shakedown cruise with this '69 Electra that I've been working on since February of this year. First time out on the highway since engine rebuild/replacement, new paint, new chrome, new vinyl top, new headliner, new brakes, etc. The tires have flat spots from sitting so long in one place; belongs to a BCA member in Oklahoma City, and I will be returning it to him next week, but until then, it is mine to enjoy! Car was bought new in Oklahoma City, and has been in the same family since new. Pete Phillips, BCA #7338 Leonard, Texas

    Customer calls and wants to find or build a Humpback like the one pictured for Family functions. He is trying to determine if its a 33-34-35. I would say 33 or 34 with the style of wheels and caps. 34 was last year for wires? What would you say? What a cool story.Dave; My name is Charles.. and I was browsing through Google in search of a 1934 Dodge Humpback Panel Delivery, wire wheels and suicide doors possibly for sale, when I found your website. I was raised on Johnson Truck Farm and Nursery, Ironwood, MI. The photo is from 1936 a picture of my Grandmother and Grandfather, Sophie and George Johnson. My father and his 3 brothers worked on the Farm. I lived on the farm till I was 5+.My father just passed away a couple of weeks ago, and it has prompted me to find this vehicle, if I could, but chances are slim that I would ever find it. But if I could find another one to create it, would work as well. Any insight where I might look would be greatl

    You know what, there are so many big cars coming out of hibernation lately, some of the guys here in Albany were thinking of starting a new Club, The Yacht club! Care for an application?!?! You can see the white rectangular vacuum block I mentioned in a previous post right under that vacuum tank you asked about. Yours looks to be in good shape. Also I notice the A/C compressor has the larger pulley. That may indicate a performance rear axle. The GS's had that larger pulley. Does the car have dual exhaust? And I saw the tell tale bundle of vacuum lines, do you have power door locks?

    Words of wisdom from my grandmother - "buy in haste, repent at your leisure" I have found to hold true, sadly too often, from personal experience. Be sure you are really in love before you commit.

    Another thing I should have mentioned is to keep it out of UV light. This will preserve the paint, fabrics, tyres, woodwork and so on. If he wants to display it indoors, use LED lights that put out no UV. Marexim is a company domiciled in our little town that makes museum quality LED lamps, but you must be able to buy them from other sources. And of course, keep it in the optimum humidity. Museum curators and conservators should be able to direct you to guidelines on this and of course you might ask the internet.

    Well guys, I went out and looked at it again, and drove it. THEN I BOUGHT IT!!!! It is now being safetied, to meet Ontario regs for licensed motor vehicles, so I'm not sure when I'm going to pick it up. Anyway, I wanted to pass on my good news, though I confess, it is a bit scary, in a weird way. I will post some more pictures and give you more info later. I'm still in the midst of a busy day, though its' kind of hard to concentrate right now. Keith

    I don't believe it is aftermarket, but I could be mistaken.

    I think we need to rename this the Ford cabriolet entertainment thread for daily amusement.

    I think there is some confusion the hood ornament with the red plastic insert and it was a Chevrolet Accessory sold by Chevrolet for 1949/50 part number 3687425 The standard hood ornament is listed in the Chevrolet Parts Book as "regular production" that is all chrome plated steel part number 3684376. I had seen them for sale as high as $250 (high end) to as low as $40 again like anything else condition depends on a lot

    Rob, Excellent photos and great vids with perfect and fitting Johnny Cash song. You lived a dream of many especially taking roads lesser travelled. Thank you for sharing. Do you have an idea what your route will be next year?

    I met with Kevin Kerbitz and members from the Flint Historical Society Saturday morning where they got the first look at the wagon. They were very excited with the inspection. The current consensus is that there is no reason to restore the wagon at this time. There is value in keeping it as is,...kind of. The only thing that was talked about was changing the floor boards and a couple of supports because the floor of the wagon had been spliced in / patched years ago and a couple of the lower supports for the floor boards were rotted away. There was no decision made at this time and since there is no hurry to do anything soon it was just put off for further discussion and to bring in some more expertise including the Sloan Museum. Remember, It is ORIGINAL only ONCE.

    A McLaughlin-Buick is always of interest. That said, I already do have more projects than I can shake a stick at.

    Well I guess that I need to add some pictures. Finally getting some time to sit for a few minutes. I would also like to share Brian's sentiments to say thanks to all that helped to accomplish this retrieval. The wagon is now safely stored in a "safe house" The last photo shows over 1 Century of Flint Built cargo hauling. The GMC is the truck that we used to get the wagon.

    Another quick "at a glance" way to tell '49 Fords from '50s is that '49s still had the outside gas cap, while '50s had a door concealing the gas cap. Of course, you have to be glancing at the drivers side for this tip to work.

    I drove the '71 Centurion on Saturday, enjoying the new, correct for '71 dual-stripe white wall bias ply tires! Here are a few shots from Saturday at the Griot's Garage flagship store in Tacoma, at my workplace, and back home in the driveway.
