    71Riviera questions

    I replaced the remains of the original exhaust on the '71 I owned, and got lots of complements on the sound after installing a factory original exhaust. Even the exhaust guy that bent my pipes was quite surprised. He had tried to sell me something throatier.

    Log truck

    Hey, why don't we put all our trucks on the bridge at once and see if she holds?!

    Identify my great-grandfather's car

    That certainly looks like a match! I'm still curious about the other car in my other thread where I added a second photo. There wasn't a conclusive agreement on that one!
  5. Any more thoughts on the car featured in this thread with the newly found photo? Post 12?
  6. Thanks nzcarnerd. New thread is created.
  7. I recently ran across the following picture of another one of my great grandfather's cars. He lived his life in Akron, Ohio. I've added some pics of another of his cars I posted in an earlier thread in a different forum.
  8. Sounds like a good idea. Could you tell me how to put that link in the new posting?
  9. Hello again. I posted this photo a few years ago trying to identify the car and, believe it or not, I've discovered another picture of the same car. Maybe it will help firm up the identity. In a separate thread, I posted a picture of another of his cars for identification.

    1929 Fisher Body wood patterns

    This thread just reminded me of a neat little booklet I found in my grandfather's garage promoting the process and quality of the Fisher bodies. It has sections on the wood, metal, glass, upholstery and testing with some great diagrams and pictures of the processes and the plants. I've scanned a few pages to give you the flavor. It is dated 1927 which is a little before this thread's target date.

    Give the people what they want

    I WANT A SMALL PICKUP WITH A STANDARD CAB AND LONG BED! My '97 Ranger (at close to 300,000 miles) is getting a bit tired and there is nothing to replace it out there!

    How do you know if your into cars?

    How 'bout having your car in two pick-ups! One for the first part of the trip, then transferred to the 2nd to bring it home!

    Time for a trailer

    I believe it was once owned by George, Jane, Judy and Elroy (and their dog Astro) but I could be wrong.
