    When Did BCA Fees go to $50 per year?

    Those of us who do not live in USA pay higher dues. If you pay for 3 years (as I have done since ~1982) the income will be recorded in that year, but the Bugle expense is over 3 years. I guess the Bugle has some income from advertising. But where does that really go? (Been an interesting post on that topic, that needs investigation) Not just as simple as dividing income by number of members

    WTB 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible

    Many people want such a fine car. But the mechanics-drive line are probably easer to repair - replace than the body-trim-interior.

    1939 Buick eight mod-41

    Looks to be rust on the usual places. No known manufacturer of floor or fender sheet metal panels. The plastic tube from the rear quarter window drain channel falls off and water runs down over the wheel arch to the base of the C door pillar. Rear valence panel where the bumper brackets protrude is another common rust point. Double skin metal. Some Old's use the same basic GM B body shell. Not the same as Chev's Are you hot rodding (going by the steering column)?

    1972 Dodge Dart Wiring

    And make sure you have a good fire extinguisher or 2 in the car. I doubt if any of that wiring mess is original. Was the car a V8 when made, or a was did have a 225ci slant 6? (When I travelled in USA-Canada in 1980-81 I bought a brown 1972 Dodge Dart)

    If you put a photo of the cowl data plate Sean1999 can decode was it was when first made. Obviously now, with replaced engine, transmission, rear end, steering wheel and who know what else that data will not mean much. Does it now have front disk brakes?

    Looks Like It's Radiator Time - '39 Special

    A radiator in an ultrasonic cleaning tank may also shake loose any solder. Not something I would try.

    39 Buick linkage problem

    The cable set up was used for 1 year only for good reason. Just one of the joys of owning a '39 ☺️
