  1. What strikes me is the similarity in the case designs/markings. It gives one the impression the cases may all have been made at the same factory, just on a different day; sort of like current day automobiles!
  2. 1983 Buick Riviera

    This car is located where? I ask as it bears a WI plate, but the ph. Nr. listed is one for NY state.
  3. Vintage instrument gauges

    Have never seen an oil viscosity gauge. Nor have I ever heard of Visco-Meter. Wonder how it works/measures? Is is just an oil pressure gauge with a different face? Here are a two links referencing a similar device - https://books.google.com/books?id=ccZMAQAAMAAJ&pg=PA93&lpg=PA93&dq=%22Visco-Meter%22&source=bl&ots=rkhjTNQHR9&sig=b7C_hXKuI3RERJ9S71i4eZde3WM&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiasrfu7PDWAhWCRCYKHfJhDoEQ6AEIYDAN#v=onepage&q=%22Visco-Meter%22&f=false https://books.google.com/books?id=VT0fAQAAMAAJ&pg=RA10-PA38&lpg=RA10-PA38&dq=%22Visco-Meter%22&source=bl&ots=1tPCs85GiX&sig=SBey9uwIaE5RXrkBjwpwfegbGeU&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwixqMqv7fDWAhWKKCYKHepJAnk4ChDoAQhHMAM#v=onepage&q=%22Visco-Meter%22&f=false
  4. I like that attitude! Probably because I am in the same situation and doing the same thing. Good luck on the sale(s)!
  5. Sitting garaged for 33 years

    One of the better looking years for the Falcon. Very easy to work on, too. What with all the memories attached to it, you will enjoy that ride for a long time.
  6. For purchase consideration by the discerning buyer is a low mileage 1962 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 convertible. She is black, with a gray cloth fabric top and gray/white interior. She sports the 394 c.i. engine, a 2 bbl carb and the 3-speed roto-hydramatic (slim jim) automatic transmission. I said low mileage. How about 35,762 actual miles since rolling off the Lansing assembly line? Full details, particulars and photos may be found on line at ==> http://62olds.atwebpages.com/ The car is located in Milwaukee, WI, ready to drive and enjoy! Price: $28,765.

  7. Buick and olds

    Don't know that I have ever seen that 2-tone green color combo on a '52 Olds before? Like it!

  9. You might try asking your question in the DeSoto forum - http://forums.aaca.org/forum/48-desoto/
  10. Early 50s car?

    I get to be the first to reply, but certainly not the last. The car is definitely a FORD. As for the year, 49-51. As for model, others shall have to answer. A 1951 Custom Victoria?
  11. I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    Looks like a few of the boys are due to send their coveralls to Mechanic's Laundry?
  12. What's this? How old?

    Is not distilled water and methanol what Oldsmobile branded as Rocket Fuel for use in the Jeftire turbo-charged engine?
  13. 53 Buick Special tire question

    Tire Rack says the radial equivalent would be a 275/50R15.
  14. Who was first?

    To me, whether the car is pushed by hand from station-to-station, or conveyed via some form of power operated device is a "distinction without a difference," in terms of defining a movable assembly line? All Oldsmobile guys know for a fact that Olds was the first to have a car assembly line -
  15. What is this 1950s 2 door station wagon?

    Photo is found in a couple of places on the net - http://rebrn.com/sub/OldSchoolCool/?from=236763 http://rebrn.com/re/my-uncle-and-cousin-in-the-s-236594/
