    Car Logo Quiz...

    Well, My mouse battery went south so got delayed. Then with all the pop up ads I got so frustrated that I quit. Nice weather here this week and I just didn't want to waste the time. Looks like a fun quiz but whoever made it should consider banning all the pop ups.

    What did you buy at Hershey this year?

    Well, I scored an intake manifold and a crankshaft and I wasn't even there. Thanks to the forum and good understanding and helpful car people I should be seeing the parts in a week or so.

    Lucas, Rolls pliers

    I tried and tried to get a good photo of the stamping on these pliers that I stumbled across but finally drew a picture. Reading clearly is the Elliot Lucas/ Cannuck England stamping. But one has to look REAL close to read the center, Pretty easy to see the two 'R"s but you really have to get the light just right to see the rest and if it really isn't there then I am seeing things. But I think I can see that it reads Rolls Royce. My experience with anything Lucas tells me to offer AS IS. They are used and may not work. I'll take twenty bucks delivered USPS lower 48. PM if interested. Jack
  5. There is an old saying. "its only original once". If you have the hankering to build Hot Rod find an abandoned project, That's what I do. Then someone else has already done the damage. I am like you, I like to keep up the speed. But more and more I see the journey just as much or even more fun than the destination.

    SoCal 70s MOPAR parts stores?

    'Year One' comes to mind. 'Steele Rubber' for the weather stripping.

    Lucas, Rolls pliers

    Dumb answer. I'm dumb. I have a phone that is capable of all that but I don't know how to get the pics from the phone into the computer and my kids and grand kids are rarely around when I need them. I do know how to get the pics into my computer from my camera.

    I went full zoom as suggested with said antique camera and found they are indeed better.

    Lucas, Rolls pliers

    Its about a 15 or 20 year old Hewlett Packard PhotoSmart 315, It was state of the are whenever I stepped up. I think it was before phone cameras or I would not have had to buy it. My kids hate it and tell me to buy a new camera. However it still works fine for 99% of what I need. Takes good pics of cars that I have owned over those years. I am pretty sure I found those pliers in the trunk of this and forgot to put them back. They were not part of the tool kit in the dash. I'll go with the Grey Poupon. Make me an offer and you can start your own smoke show.

    Looking for a 1980s Spartan II

    Not many of those kits will be manual trans. I don't think I ever seen one unless it had foreign rear mounted running gear and was rather small.

    Wanted 1959 Impala Convertible

    100 plus for a vert. I should have bought a bunch of those when they were 500 bucks. I'm not a GM guy but the 59s are a very handsome car in my opinion.

    The mail order suppliers can over night just about anything they sell.
  15. Not pumping fuel? Filters Fuel pump restriction in a line somewhere (fuel pick up in tank)? Fairly easy to eliminate some of these things especially of you have access to a portable boat tank. Throwing parts may eventually hit but process of elimination may save you some money.

    What is this brass unit with ignition points?

    You need to find a sucker to test it.
  17. I found something similar at a motor cycle swap meet. I was interested in a tail light and it was inside. The seller turned just about as white. I left.

    Single, center post, in ground garage lift

    I guess if all you do is brakes. Maybe an oil change with those cross members in the way. You couldn't get a transmission jack under there. I cant work on my back anymore.

    32 foot enclosed trailer

    2000 Cargo trailer, car hauler.Could carry two small cars.Comes with Two pop up tents,Oil drain panFire extingusherExtra brake shoes (Brakes work well) The previous owner said that the brakes squeaked so he put different shoes on it.Work bench,Grinder and wire wheelViceTool drawersExtension cordFloor jackDry erase board with cork board.WinchElectric tongue jackDrivers side doorWide side door W/ tray for spray cans and suchTie downs includedBroomsTrash canRoad side emergency reflectorsJack StandsFuel jug storageSpare tireRecently repainted and sealed.It has 12 volt inside lights (not wired for 120)But it does have its own battery for the lights, winch and tongue jack.If your tow rig is wired properly it will charge the on board battery.Probably forgetting some things but the trailer is well outfitted with lots of extra stuff.It does have a cracked tail light, it still works but I am looking for another one.It belonged to a serious drag racer.There is some signs of water damage on one wall however the leak has been sealed and it stays dry inside now.I towed this from Seattle recently and it felt like it had a tire out of round. It would smooth out over 55 mph.I jacked up all four wheels and found one that I think was the culprit so I put the spare on.I would buy tires for it if I was going to keep it.I traded some stuff around and ended up with this trailer and I don't need it.Other than the tire it towed fine.Clear open Washington title and current tags.The weight distributing hitch and related parts are NOT included.I have been known to do some swapping or part swaps but I don't want any junk.I wont hurt to ask I guess.I would possibly trade for a late twenties or early thirties Dodge, Plymouth or Chrysler in good shape.PM with a phone number and I will call you back as soon as I can.

    48 Chrysler speaker

    I am sure that I have a junk one that you can have for postage. They can be rebuilt. I don't think there is anything special about them, you could probably get one at a car stereo place.

    Car Bug

    Not any way. I mounted an Optima on its side with the vent holes to the bottom. After a couple of years there was some typical battery damage on the tray and below it. When they say any position they should say as long as the vents are towards the top.

    Single, center post, in ground garage lift

    Four post drive on lift with sliding jacks. That's what I have and consider it the only way I would go. I've lifted bodies with it, I have also lifted boats off of their trailers with it. I have used two post lifts and I had to get on my knees every time and I have a hard time with that these days.

    Towing vehicle for a DB

    That is a good truck. I wouldn't even consider selling mine unless I was offered what I paid new.
