  1. Up here in Canada they are toying with the idea to shoot a sticky GPS dart from the grill of a Police car . On to the back of the Felon speeding car . Then call off the high speed chase and follow the Dart with GPS so another Police car can follow it . Then I assume arrest the felon ? ?
  2. Maybe the information in this posting Items 9 and 10 can help you . I would try and contact Bud as he seems to know a lot about the manufactures .
  3. Does anyone know who can repair this 1920's Reo Steering wheel for a friend on mine . thanks
  4. According to Jay Leno - The reason they brought out the KIA was so the Hyundai owners had something to laugh at .
  6. I guess this is why Phil Edmonton Lemon Aid Car books took off . In 1968 he founded the Automobile Protection Association (APA), which uncovered and disseminated information about automobile defects and successfully pressured the auto industry for several recalls. Edmonston was president of the APA until 1987. In that role, he worked on thousands of consumer claims against automobile manufacturers and won million-dollar settlements and hundreds of lawsuits for consumers.[2] His work with the association led to the Lemon-Aid series of car manuals, issued annually since the 1970s. Edmonston has served as a pro bono witness on automobile defects and safety before numerous courts and government committees. In 1982, he testified on inadequate automobile quality and rust protection before the United States Senate Subcommittee on Technology and successfully pressured Ford to become the first automaker to provide a corrosion compensation warranty. He is the author of over 100 best-selling books on consumer rights and the automobile industry.[2]

  9. i worked at the Brampton AMC factory in the early 1970's building the Gremlins and Hornets . We had car doors shipped in from Kenosha that were banged all in the same spot and they would run a grinder on them to smooth them out . I assume that was the first place for rust . We ran out of the proper colour dashes for the car and they would paint as an example a blue one beige to match the rest of the car . Before the windshields were installed . I always wondered how the owner would react if the paint came off when he was cleaning his car . My father had a 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood and it too rotted out everywhere . I heard they were using Japanse steel ? True or False ? This whole topic bothers me as all the incompetence helped to destroy a good industry here in North America .

The Reo Mate used a 16E 6 cylinder motor . I found this list of Car Manufacturers that used them but not the Models of cars . Thanks Bud for the answer to the problem .

  22. I had a brand new 1977 Olds Cutlass Salon it cost $8,000 new . After 6 months all the silver paint fell off from the back of the front doors where the door handles are across the complete trunk and rear fenders . The front fenders , doors and hood were like brand new . I had to go see the GM claims adjuster . He told me it was normal wear and tear from stone chips from driving along the highway . I responded that is fine but I do not drive along the highway backwards . They ended up painting the car for free . About 4 years later I had the whole car repainted and the body man said to me . I can see you had the hood , doors and front fenders replaced as they are like brand new . He said the rear fenders and trunk metal were completely perforated . I told him the story and he said GM had tremendous quality control problems with the cars made in their Sainte Therese , Quebec assembly plant . The plant is now closed down but the poor work ethic effected GM sales .
  23. I worked at the AMC plant in Brampton , Ontario in 1972 - 1974 assembling the Gremlin , etc . All they would do is run the car through a car wash at the end before it left the factory . I do not know if there was wax in the wash ? ?
