    Advice on repairing paint chips

    You can also use a slight coat of body putty to fill and smooth before applying paint as well

    Dad and some of his cars

    Another thing that I have noticed about Folks that I have known with Alzheimers is the usual robust health they have. Rarely very sick and often living a long life. The loss of faculties is made worse by their not being able to enjoy their good health.

    Dad and some of his cars

    Victorialynn i wonder if your great photos make anyone else realize that like me they have almost no pictures of cars they grew up with. I have a few pics of me as a child with my family and my Dad's cars but almost nothing of the ones that I have owned. Odd considering how much i enjoy cars and made them an important part of my life. Not trying to hijack the thread but just like a light bulb came on.

    Where to buy parts online?

    Since I had two when I was much younger(the cars were also) I doubt that I will ever need Triumph parts again.

    Where to buy parts online?

    They sent me a link to items on close out for the vehicles that I have bought parts for from them. I purchased quite a few items as the prices ere really cheap. Many were manufacturer parts(Hyundai filter for example) and were shipped in only two boxes. Worked for me.

    Need help on 1949 Cadillac purchase

    I used this by hand on my 1952 Plymouth and it made a dramatic difference in how it looked. https://www.meguiarsdirect.com/meguiars-ultimate-compound-16oz.html

    Portawalls question

    In my "vast" experience it seems that when many people ask for advice or information they are often looking for others to confirm what they have already decided to do

    Impossible to know. Who could have predicted what old cars are popular today 50 years ago? And popularity often changes over the years. Mustangs, Cameros, Vettes, sure but other than that and high end exotics I would not have a clue. Plus I would expect that although the Old Car hobby will not die and go away it will be much diminished from what we see today going by what people want in a car now vs what was popular back then.
