  1. 6 Volt Positve ground Horns , found some

    FYI: YOUR CAR ALSO REQUIRES POSITIVE GROUND SPARK PLUGS.
  2. Make your belts last longer

    This is the accessory drive belt, not a toothed timing belt.
  3. Wanted to buy. 1985 Riviera Convert

    Seems we have similar tastes in cars. They are like dogs----- they just follow me home! Your turn will come in due time Don't give up hope! as ever, Willie
  4. "Matching Numbers"

    Please explain your quote. Thanks
  5. 1904 something or other (Berwick)?

    Had a friend with a Sizaire-Berwick several years ago. It was a big luxury car that was made in France from 1913 until 1927. NO RESEMBLANCE !!
  6. Jumping a 6v with a 12v

    Thanks for this post. This is the only safe way to do it. The only danger is if the 6V battery happens to have an internal open it could explode. Old man---been there--done that! But you still get the cigar!! BTW: I never saw a car title with mainline or confederate on it! Those words only apply to body parts, not mechanical parts .
  7. 87 YEAR OLD SON STILL LIVING WITH DAD

    IF YOU INSIST

  9. 1939 FORD DELUXE CONV. CPE

    NEED THE VERTICAL DIVISION STRIP FOR THE CENTER OF WINDSHIELD CALL 304-469-9648 AND LEAVE MESSAGE AND CALLBACK NUMBER
  10. White Cars

    I remember reading an article on car colors several years ago about how car colors were affected by the economy. Gloomy times resulted in dark colors, good times, if any, resulted in brighter colors. I do remember the cars of the 30's were mostly black, brown, dark blue, or dark green. During the great depression some of the more affluent bought Model A Ford Town Cars to go to the theater and left their Packards, Cadillacs, Pierce Arrows, etc. in their garages. They didn't want to flaunt their wealth in bad times!
  11. You now have everyone's attention so tell us "The REST of the STORY" . Make, model, history etc.
  12. Nickel

    TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION "NO". All nickel cleaner/polishes require the addition of generous amounts of elbow grease! TRY THIS ONE Powdered rouge mixed with alcohol applied with a chamois. After the tarnish is removed, polish with a dry chamois.
  13. THE RADIO DID NOT LAST LONG IN THESE CARS. THE SUN COMING THRU THE WINDSHIELD COOKED THEM . PROBABLY MELTED THE WAX OUT OF ALL THE CAPACITORS.
  14. FYI; THE 'BIG THREE (GM-FORD-CHRYSLER) USUALLY LET THE INDEPENDENTS DO THE EXPERIMENTING WITH NEW IDEAS. IF SOMETHING PROVED TO BE ACCEPTED BY THE BUYING PUBLIC THEY WOULD ADOPT IT ON THEIR PRODUCT! SEEMS THIS WAS AN EXCEPTION! THEY ALSO SWAPPED IDEAS WITH EACH OTHER. FORD AND GM DID A LOT OF THIS IN THE 1960's WHEN I WAS A LINC-MERC DEALERSHIP SER. MGR. (EVER SEE A 60s PONTIAC WITH A FORD 3 SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION?) had synchronized low! IN THE 50'S GM CARS USED A THERMOSTATIC HEATER WATER VALVE. THEY GOT IT FROM NASH-KELVINATOR. Now about this "getting old and forgetting stuff" When does it start? I am 1929 model . Have had my head under a hood for 75 years. A PREVENTION MAYBE? You may need a shot of Hudsonite Fluid!!
