  1. Looks like it is done very well. Probably has crowds around it at shows.

    RE: ROBERTWILLIAM

    Does anyone know who this guy is? I've not seen any post other than of a car he has for sale & the link to Ebay. All his posts are like this, no price, one photo, no information. It appears he is another dealer on the site.

    Advice on what to do with a 65 Skylark Convertible

    Tom, I sent you a PM.
  4. George Smolinski

    What do you think?

    Nick, More information & a photo or two would be helpful. What make and model, how many miles, engine size, etc. A '68 Mercury 4 door with a 390 engine is probably not worth the effort, but a '68 Mustang with a 390 may be.

    Steam Powered Packard

    The name Rube Goldberg comes to mind when looking at the photos of that contraption.

    Packard coupe, cheap!

    How about this one for $16,500? Ad says: "well-documented and maintained through the years" Supposedly 31,400 miles. Or this one for $5500? Ad says: "1941 Packard 110 Business Coupe, Series 1900 with flathead 6 cyl engine and 3 speed on column."

    Several million dollar collection for sale.

    I guess it's a good thing that I saw the CL ad & posted it here.

    What's your most 'unexpected' part find?

    Most unexpected: I was looking on line for a floor shift steering column for a '66 Impala & ran across an ad for a Chevy column. I called the seller & he wasn't sure if it was Impala or Chevelle, but I told him I'd buy it anyway. I then asked if he had anything else. He said he had a few small pieces, mostly mirrors, so I bought them. I think the column was $100 & the box was $25. Turns out 1 of the mirriors was a driver's side remote for a 1964 Impala & in darn near NOS condition. Very scarce part to find. I didn't need it so it went on Ebay where it went to around $300 with a few days left. I thought I was doing pretty good. The last day it jumped to $600 just before I went to bed. I looked in the morning to see where it ended & was blown away. Slightly over $1000. Nice return on $25. Best parts find: I owned a '66 Biscayne L72. Those have a 1 year only dual snorkel aircleaner, again a very scarce piece. I was surfing Ebay & spotted a '66 plain Impala with an L72 that had an NOS aircleaner for it in the original box sitting in the trunk. Back then you could get phone numbers of sellers or give yours out. I did so with the seller & convinced him to sell me the aircleaner for $600. I ended up selling the car w/o the aircleaner on it, and put the a/c on Ebay. Ended up getting $4500 for it.

    Odd little Italian car

    Because for some, maybe a lot of people on here it is no longer a hobby & hasn't been for a long time. It is now a business or investment complete with dishonest wheeler dealers that show up whenever money in large quantities is involved, maybe not here, but they are around this "business." Perhaps you've heard the saying about 1970 Chevelle SS's. There's more of them today than were ever built.

    1969 442 Convertible

    Well put Brasscarguy. 442 Originally started out to mean exactly that - 4 speed, 4 barrel, dual exhaust. At some point the "girlie men" must have complained because they didn't have the smarts to know how to drive a stick, so Olds made them with AT's also. I've even seen some for sale with AT on the column.
