  1. Youngsters today want money in not money out. Old cars are not chick magnets.

    Engine and transmision swap.

    It’s a four cylinder. Main problem is the clutch pressure plate and t/o bearing. Engine is weak but useable.
  5. 26 Chrysler parts are nearly impossible to find. I am considering an engine and transmision swap. I don’t want a hot rod just a driver. Any suggestions please?

    How Many Wrenches Do You Really Need?

    At least two of most. Three of some. I don’t like wasting time looking a wrench.
  13. Something to consider. Wood finishing products have drastically changed especially in the marine industry. The old standbys like natural oils and varnishes have long been replaced by modern technology. Look at what the big boys who own million dollar yachts use on their bright work. If you are around a boat yard see what these monsters use. The down side of all this is many of the best finishes are not made in this country and are very expensive. How much are your wood wheels worth to you? Mine will stay the same with a so so paint job because I know what ‘Ship shape and Bristol fashion’ means and costs.

    What engines were the refiners thinking about with the 91 and 93 non ethanol fuels? My Model A’s and mower sure don’t need the stuff.
