    Cars of course! I've owned approximately 200 cars over the last 42 years. Many vintage, lots of mid-century muscle, about 45 of them were Corvettes. I was one of the original Moderators on I do almost all my own work. Complete frame off restorations are my favorite hobby. Spent about 26 years as an ASE certified top flight tech (glorified term for mechanic), mostly with the General but also with Ford and Chrysler. Moved to sunny Palm Springs about 16 years ago and now own a bar/restaurant there.

    E15 Fuel

    It may change some automotive terminology.

    E15 Fuel

    E-fuel, with its lower boiling point, has turned into a nightmare in the hotter climes for anyone with a carburated vehicle. Have had several of my vehicles towed, repeatedly, only to have them start up again, just fine once cooled down. 🤬

    1935 Packard owner wants it gone

    It's only around $900 US. I think it's worth that much even if the engine is missing.

    1966 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight 6,748 ACTUAL MILES

    Yes, price and location?

    Pocket change for an interesting project. Surprised it hasn't sold.

    1930 Peerless Six 61A

    I'm surprised this hasn't sold. It looks like a great deal to me.

    So whom would you sell it to?

    I have no moral issue with this at all. This is simply a case of an item for sale. Everybody can look but the first one to show up with cash in hand should be the owner. You can blubber all you want about "honesty" but a month down the road the buyer, whoever it is, won't even remember the seller's name.

    So whom would you sell it to?

    How would the first guy even know he's first if you don't tell him so?

    I looked at their website. Seems to me like it's a much needed service in the vintage car world. I've cleaned up a few lost titles through lien sales over the years but I wouldn't hesitate to give these guys a call the next time around and see what they can offer. I say "thanks for offering to help!"

    Went to a fly in / car show Saturday

    This would have been a perfect candidate.

    1937 120 Strong/Weak Points?

    Thank you for the information.

    1937 120 Strong/Weak Points?

    I am going to look at a '37 120 sedan and just looking for any tips or items I should be aware of beforehand. After some deliberation here, I have ruled out 1938 due to some inherent block imperfections. Appreciate any input. Greg

    Saw this clean MGB today....

    Agreed. Despite the bumper change in '75 which I didn't care for either, these days I find myself warming up to cars I never used to give a second glance. Probably just a nostalgia thang.
