  1. Bing and the Andrews Sisters did a nice version of that tune as well. I love the film, Lamar! All done with talent and camera angle. No special effects there. Poor Elvis, he just gets too social for the neighbors' liking! Are you bringing him to Denver?
  2. Can anyone advise me on how to remove my upper trim on the back glass for my 54 model 56R? I have the sides moldings off, and I know the lower molding comes out with the glass. But for the center molding on top, the books are very vague... It is in super nice condition where it sits, so I don't want to bugger it up taking it off. Thanks to all!

    1955 Buick Steering Column or parts of

    I have one off a Roadmaster car, but I imagine it will work for you. Let me look in my books to confirm. PM me if interested...
  6. I'm not finding it. Can you give a link?
  7. Buick has a similar set up, and a similar problem... Mine came apart on a 54 Buick, and I machined a sleeve out of brass pipe to sit snugly onto the rubber insulator on the steering shaft. Some glue was used as insurance. Then solder your horn wire and off you go. I have never seen a new one for sale... but the Caddy guys may have a better idea.
  8. Don't run it all the time. Leave the mechanical for normal operation, and have a switch for the electric pump as a back-up.

    I have a very nice hood in Orange County, CA, a day's drive and back. Super nice, taken from a Texas car and been in my rafters for 20 years. PM me if interested...
