  1. Cars & Parts now seperate in buy & sell

    This separation is an improvement- Thank You !
  2. My 1937 Roadmaster 80C Phaeton (4-door convertible dual sidemount spare tires IS HEAVY likely over 4500 pounds --- BUT... It DOES NOT NEED power steering - in fact it steers like a baby carriage. I can steer it with one finger from a dead stop out of a parking space - NO POWER STEERING NEEDED, THANK YOU !!
  3. 53 Buick Special tire question

    Coker offers a wide white Radial which looks like the original Bias. If you are not showing the Buick in AACA National Meets, these may be your best choice for mileage, handling, and appearance: https://www.cokertire.com/tires/american-classic-bias-profile-radials.html just click on this link and use the "Drop-Down" menu to choose your size - 3-1/4 inch whitewall 7.60R15 I have just replaced the 5 tires on my 1954 Cadillac with the 820R15 In my opinion this company will always treat you right if problems occur. They have for me for decades.
  4. Who was fist?

    I agree with TerryB - Olds had his line moving - it just wasn't an automated motion of the line, but vehicle assemblies moved from station to station
  5. 2018 Glidden?

    With regard to NEXT YEAR's Glidden in Twin Falls, IDAHO: I had dinner tonight with long-time friends, the TOUR CHAIRMAN Merrill Maxfield (and his delightful wife). September 16-21, 2018 73rd Revival AAA Glidden Tour, Twin Falls, Idaho Merrill Maxfield 801-576-0071 eldermaxfield@comcast.net
  6. I think the real answer is that the seller is going to RESTO-MOD this Cadillac like the shows you see on VELOCITY: Totally custom interior and guages, Crate engine Lowered on Air Suspension, 26 inch rims with 325/30-R-26 Radials? Just a wild guess, but A shame (in my opinion)
  7. They apparently were an extremely popular aftermarket accessory - easily installed by anyone with a hacksaw in some cases
  8. Took the '37 Roadmaster Phaeton out for a drive this morning to visit a friend who is a genius at Classic and collectible vehicle upholstery. She turned 12,985 miles this morning, and drives and steers like a dream. I couldn't be happier with the way this Buick handles, especially considering her size, wheelbase, weight, etc. I have attached a couple of current photos taken this morning. Also attached are a couple of sneak peeks of a one-off dream car which is currently receiving a custom top - the one and only Dodge Granada which will likely soon be housed in a private collection here in Metairie, Louisiana which, among approximately 150 vehicles, includes the famed Buick Landau.
  9. Sorry - beyond the time and availability - Maybe next time?
  10. Emotionally attached to vehicle

    You could, during conversation with him, ask what his father's opinion might have been regarding having the truck just sitting neglected in a field for that period of time - of course this could backfire on you, but might get him thinking if his father would approve or want it to go to a home where care could be provided
  11. SENTIMENTAL TOUR 2018 - A TALE OF TWO CITIES

    Ref: Tonneau Covers for Open cars: We have towed the 1915 Hudson SIX-40 Touring going Cross-Country many times, usually in the closed 30 ft, extra-tall trailer (Reliability tour in Savannah - Hilton Head, etc.), but have on several occasions also crossed the country with it on the Open Trailer. We have two separate Tonneau covers - one over the rear portion to keep baggage, tools etc. out of sight, and a separate Tonneau cover for the front compartment. These two covers serve a multitude of purposes: 1. covering the interior while travelling on an open trailer without the top or side-curtains catching the wind at highway speeds 2. Covering the interior over night at motels to keep out rain, dew, and prying eyes 3. covering the seats sometimes during tour stops so that the seats (and passenger thighs) do not roast from the sun PS: Our '30 Packard has an additional Tonneau in addition to the two described above for the Hudson. Since the Packard has a second windshield and wind wings for rear seat passengers, a third Tonneau, matching the Haartz Canvas top (and trunk cover) extends from the rear edge of the front seat to the extended rear windshield, essentially enclosing most of the rear compartment, keeping rear seat passengers comfortable even in rain or in harsh winter conditions. I came up with that idea after being a back seat passenger in another open car during bad weather, and it really works.
  12. Our 1915 Hudson SIX-40 has a factory Cut-Out, and so did our 1914 Buick B-37 Touring. On the Buick, it was actually made as a part of the muffler. Our 1912 Oakland Model 30 also had a Cut-Out.
  13. Other than the increased noise, the intended function was to reduce resistance and back pressure in the exhaust system, ostensibly increasing horsepower, fuel economy, and speed
  14. TIRE SIZES THAT WILL FIT 16" RIMS ON 1940 BUICK SPECIAL

    I've had excellent results with COKER ! Their Bias-Ply, and their RADIAL tires have all served me well, they have absolutely stood behind the one problem I had and took care of it, and they strongly support AACA
  15. HURRICANE IRMA UPDATE 09/07/2017
