    I noticed a couple across the isle from me talking but I noticed her most. She came across to my stall enquiring about a Suburban tailgate I had. Batting her eyes trying to get a very very good price I noticed him trying to get her attention. I told him please wait I will be just a min. to hold on when he asked if it was for a Blazer. They both walked away him giving heck for not asking.

    I feel like the new kid on the block as my first year was 1979. Yes we are all getting older and the three fellows I used to go with have all passed away. Now my wife is going with me again and I carry a chair for her. I drop her off along the way where she can visit so I can do a couple of isles and pick her up again then we carry on.

    1924 Cadillac Opera Coupe for sale

    A car club in Canada called Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada has appraisers in the different regions. You could contact an appraiser from Chemical Valley Region based in Sarnia and he may make an arrangement to look at it for you. I have never heard a problem about any of the club appraisers over the years. If you need some help with a contact email me. http://acccc.ca/home/index.php/contact-us

    1924 Cadillac Opera Coupe for sale

    I bought my 1930 Cadillac opera coup in Windsor also. At that price it will be crossing the boarder any day now.

    Welcome and wagons have become a very hot commodity the last coupe of years
  9. I would clean it out not knowing what it is if you are adding a different grease. As some greases are not compatible with others.

    Welcome you will find some extremely helpful car guys here on technical data to car shows on this forum.
  11. This is actually compatible to be used with yellow metals.
  12. Remember to use a grease or oil that is compatible with brass. EP additives which contain phosphorus/sulfur compounds are corrosive to yellow metals such as the copper and/or brass used in bushings the GL-1 class of gear oils does not contain any EP additives and thus finds use in applications which contain parts made of yellow metals.

    Before NAFTA we had the Auto Pact between US and Canada. If I remember correctly the trade between the two country never changed that much when it came to North American built cars including antiques. Not sure when they did away with tariffs on old cars but before my time I would think.

    I think you should look into what was made in the GM Oshawa plants in the 60s and 70s. There was a B body line where many an SS Impala car was made. Also an A body line with GTO, Chevelle SS and the Canada only Beaumont SS. In my day I would tour all the GM powertrain plants monthly. The St. Catherine plant was a small plant but built many of the Corvette engines as well as the Tonawanda engine. Oshawa also built the Chevy SS pickup in the 90s with the plant receiving more quality awards than any other GM plant. BUT they sent the truck production to Mexico anyways 10 years ago. Obviously quality does not guarantee you a job anymore.

    They would be doing the hobby a favour if they put 100% tariffs on antique cars from Canada. Not many new car manufactures in Canada as you can see by this link. They have only one or two plants each in Canada and some only run one shift. So no way will it effect buying a new car in the US. Mexico builds many more cars as that is where the Canadian plants were moved to over the years. https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/auto-auto.nsf/eng/am00767.html
