    Replicar and one of the uglier ones at that.

    Hydramatic repair shop needed

    We have had 4 or 5 trannys rebuilt by Fisher. Not cheap but they guarantee their work.

    1966 Austin Healey Sprite

    Bug Eyes just don't hold up very well in a head on collision with a full sized Chevy. Ask me how I know.

    Tax and your cars

    Gas taxes do not come anywhere near paying 100% of the cost of building and maintaining roads. Even those who do not drive subsidize the roads thru their state income and sales taxes.

    Tax and your cars

    Our local bank has several parking spaces reserved near the front door for "Fuel Efficient Vehicles". I always park my 7000# Ram Diesel in these spaces. At 17 mpg the Ram is more efficient per pound moved than a 3000# car getting 34 mpg.

    Someone do the math. I'd bet that a thin tired bicycle puts more weight on the road on a square inch basis than an 18 wheeler.

    We are in Amish country. You would be surprised how much damage their steel wheeled farm implements do to roads and they pay no gas taxes. no registration fees and no inspection fees.

    1918 Kissel Roadster / Hardtop

    Actually, the company I found to fabricate the curved glass we need only does laminated safety and said if they could do tempered the tempered might actually cost more. Surprised me as well. If you know of a company that produces custom tempered curved glass please post contact info. We only found 2 companies, both architectural glass businesses, that would even quote on the glass we need.

    1918 Kissel Roadster / Hardtop

    One of the curved windows in our car was indeed Plexiglas or Lexan. We didn't realize it until we started to remove it.
  13. We have had several '50s Buick brake boosters rebuilt by Power Brake Exchange in Pittsburg, always with good results.

    My neighbor's new/old truck....

    Cars are where you find them. Years ago we restored a '19 International that was found on the 4th floor of an abandoned toilet paper factory in Philly. Our customer was in the trucking biz and one of his drivers noticed the vehicle peeking out from a building that was being demolished. Our customer hustled to Philly and bribed a crane operator to lower the vehicle onto his trailer. Keiser does seem to have a knack for seeing antiques wherever he looks.

    1918 Kissel Roadster / Hardtop

    I would be interested in seeing how a glass blower goes about making a curved glass window. Some curved plate glass is available for china cabinets but only in limited sizes.

    1918 Kissel Roadster / Hardtop

    Our customer is concerned about safety re the plate glass in the Rauch and Lang since he intends to drive it and wants laminated throughout. Thus the high price of the relatively large curved glass pieces.

    Buick packing nut removal

    If properly tightened the pump will leak a drop now and then when running but will be dry with the engine not running.

    1918 Kissel Roadster / Hardtop

    Re curved glass...we are restoring a 1918 Rauch and Lang electric with curved side glass similar to the Kissel. Best price we can get on 4 pieces of curved laminated safety glass is $3100 for the 4 pieces. Hopefully Ron's glass is usable as is.

    ALEMITE FEMALE FITTING

    My mistake. Your # is correct and is for the female. The male is 1091K16. I must not have been wearing my bifocals.
