  1. Really nice car, and a bargain at that! If Star Wars air cleaner was stock, it would be a Grand Sport, but I don't see anything saying it is
  2. Something looks wierd n the pulley of the AC compressor
  3. I agree re "suspicious" phrasing." my husband signed a contract for 5 years in Italy, Europe". Seriously?
  4. On my second gen ( 67) my muffler was rotted at the bottom. They are hard if not impossible to find so I took it to the blacksmith. He cut off the bottom 3" and re-welded it. Have seen no problems since.
  5. Tim Hope this pix help. I sent MC to White Post for rebuild, sent Vac booster to Booster Dewey for same. Dewey is good- I told him I wanted vac booster done in same (gold) finish as original. He said "Don't forget the hood latch- that was gold too". I also sent him the MC cover so that they all matched. Am very happy with how they came out. I hate those re=plated MC covers- they look wrong to me. The process of how he re-coated them can best be explained by Dewey of Dewey Boosters - see his ad in the Review.
  6. Jan- why would it matter if the car cranks only, vs just starting it and while the engine running and the car in park, turning the wheel back and forth, lock to lock, with the res cap off?
  7. That's a really good picture; 'Showdown At The gas Station"?
  8. 60 degrees in North Jersey in February/ time to get out the soap!!!
  9. Good points from all 3 members; Bernie makes a good point re Rolls Royce owners- now I'm thinking about the Dusenburgs. Seems a lot of them survived, but they didn't make a ton of them either.
  10. Just watched a few episodes of "Americarna"/ pretty good, not too much b.s. They did a special on the Corvette Museum sinkhole collapse; what a tragedy. Narrator said " since the beginning, approx 1,600,000 Vettes have been made, and approx 800,000 are still registered, making it the most collected car in the country ( and probably the world too). Interesting statistic/ wonder how many Riv's are still registered? Are there services that track such things as State by State registrations?

  12. Now THAT'S cool/ don't give anyone any ideas, Paul!!
  13. Here in the New York / New Jersey Metropolitan area, back in the late 60's. we listened to WABC-AM, cousin Brucie and company. But FM was coming on strong, with more progressive rock. One clever radio syndicate owned WABC AM and started WPLJ-FM. Their clever idea was, ABC was 77 on the AM dial, and PLJ was 92.5 I think on the FM. The gimmick was, you could flip your selector from am to fm and be right on 77 or 92.5 ( or 95.5?) Anyway it was a really great gimmick; remember most of our radios back then had the AM-FM selector. Still works today, and you can impress the young ones.
  14. That would make sense re what he was trying to explain to me, Ed. Which means if the car wasnt blt with 2 speakers it never had the fade built into the harness.
