    Chrome questions

    I went to pick up this first round of chroming and I am quite pleased! There were a couple smaller pieces that I didn’t accept (they wholeheartedly agreed on my opinion and said they should not have gone beyond their own inspector), but they’re redoing them tomorrow and said they will overnight them to me - no charge of course. May even have them by Friday! Hopefully by this fall I'll have the remainder ready to go - bumpers, grille, miscellaneous other bits. So far I believe it has been money well spent. Jon Wright's Custom Chrome Plating in Grafton, OH. I believe it's OK to post their name if its a compliment!

    In honor of Father’s Day

    I have this picture of my dad framed in the garage. He's being the "sidewalk engineer" as I dismantled my Fiat near the beginning its restoration. Sorely missed.

    If this were true, they'd need hankies tied on their heads under their covers.

    1966 Cadillac deville

    Always nice to hear about other "knuckleheads!" I can still hear my dad from years ago: "Just calm down. Anything you broke can be fixed." Advice I didn't always care to hear...

    old car exhibition in France

    Thank you for all your efforts posting these pictures! So many cars we don't see here in the US. As to that dynamo on my 2cv, I haven't looked into it yet. Sooner or later...

    FCA May End Chrysler line

    Being a market sample of one, I have to say that my 2013 Fiat 500 (base model) has been a great, trouble-free, 44 mpg, plenty of get-up-and-go, automobile. Other folks I've met also like theirs. I'm quite pleased with how my '59 Granluce was built and am having a ball playing around with my '67 Giardiniera. No, I'm not a lifelong Fiat nut - just happened to travel this path accidentally.

    Daytona Olds?

    I believe that original Packard Gray Wolf is in the Packard Museum in Dayton, OH.

    old car exhibition in France

    Great Pictures! Always glad to hear from you. I had my 2cv van in our local Memorial Day Parade today. Not many folks had ever seen one.
  9. What a fantastic mix of vehicles! What is that motorcycle??

    What to use to clean this?

    Great starter material for a pile of wet brush that needs burned.
