  1. Set up an eBay search for the part number. Have the newly listed sent to your computer every morning. Max Merritt sells them.
  2. What kind of car ?
  3. Those 50's car club plaques are very collectible. The Pickers shop in LeClair IA. have them on the wall, some are labeled NFS. Yours looks like a good one.
  4. Hey Randy, when you get that Auburn, Joe Goss does good work.
  5. Penetrating Oils Machinist's Workshop Mag recently published some information on various penetrating oils that I found very interesting. Some of you might appreciate this. The magazine reports they tested penetrates for break out torque on rusted nuts. They are below, as forwarded by an ex-student and professional machinist. They arranged a subjective test of all the popular penetrates with the control being the torque required to remove the nut from a "scientifically rusted" environment. Penetrating oil Average load None 516 pounds WD-40 238 pounds PB Blaster 214 pounds Liquid Wrench 127 pounds Kano Kroil 106 pounds ATF-Acetone mix 53 pounds The ATF-Acetone mix was a "home brew" mix of 50 - 50 automatic transmission fluid and acetone. Note the "home brew" was better than any commercial product in this one particular test. Our local machinist group mixed up a batch and we all now use it with equally good results. Note also that "Liquid Wrench" is almost as good as "Kroil" for about 20% of the price. Steve from Godwin-Singer says that ATF-Acetone mix is the best and you can also use ATF- lacquer thinner 50 - 50 mix. ATF=Automatic Transmission Fluid
  6. You may want to post this in the What is it forum below.
  7. TMT, you should post in the Commercial Advertisements below.
  8. TMT, this is a nine year old post.
  9. Is there any update ?
  10. I think Jack Benny is superimposed on that picture. The safety stand looks pretty stout to me. Overland maybe?
  11. So what is the reason why law enforcement is not using this ?
  12. I would suggest that you place your cars in the wanted / for sale section below. Be sure to include price and location.
  13. John, how did you accumulate so many hubcaps? Maybe the OP wants a few more. I have seen the sides of buildings 'wallpapered' with them.
  14. The small hood ornament is 35 Chevy EA ( Master) Group number 1.265 part number 378476
