  1. Past hour
  2. well night two of disassembly. man i forgot how many parts i had to put on after the engine went in. going to take a few days to remove everything and clear the path for the drivetrain to come out.
  3. Steve, personally the tune up chain is as strong as your weakest link. I’m certain your NGK plugs do what they are suppose to do when all the tune up components are in sync. There are many ways to get where you want to go. The forum certainly has helped me quite a bit. Turbinator
  4. Terry - so glad I bumped into you! Glad we had a chance to talk. Joe - so great to meet you! Joel told me so much about your car, I was so glad to see that beautiful ride in person Marty - You're too sweet! Just doing what I love and am glad to help out. Glad we got to see you!! Hugs to Miss Dale
  5. Art, being mistaken and admitting the error at my age doesn’t smart nearly as much as when I was a boy in Math class. 🤓 Thank you for bringing the error to my attention. I’m much better at calculating ROI over a given time period. Turbinator
  6. no doubt it is, but also consider are you now selling the least desirable of the things now? I still see strong sales, if its what people want. But as you know, many things are not wtd any longer and yes, tough to move. sold a nomad last month needing everything and it sold easily. not so much for my model As or a 41 ford conv for example. Looks like the 41 ford mkt is drying up. so like all things, there is a re positioning of the mkt and what is in demand. that will always be.
  7. The 1950 Chrysler Windsor Newport that had so many of us tied up in knots trying to figure out if selling a kidney would be enough, is due for delivery tonight. Spent much time on the phone with the owner who had inherited his grandfathers collection. Really looking forward to seeing this car for sure.
  8. Today
  9. One of my favorite cars at Pebble this year. Honest unrestored car. Great style. Fantastic chassis. Was fun looking it over.
  10. W Someone will have answer to the value and will need a lot more info on the car. What other cars are for sale would be nice to know too. Art
  11. I could not resist posting this photo that a friend sent me. It is a while since I have posted anything. I have been waiting for some metal to arrive, to finish the collet drawbar for the big lathe. The parcel got lost by the courier and had to be eventually resent. The coach trimmer has sent these photos of the work on the seats.
  12. 1968 Pontiac GTO Coupe On Ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/1968-Pontiac-GTO-Coupe/293279272139?
  13. Hi, From sunny England, I’ve just finished restoring my 1929 Model 65 and I had trouble reading my FEDCO plate. During the restoration I decided to remove the plate by carefully drilling out the two spot welds. Once removed I looked at the back and I could clearly see the centre two numbers that weren’t visible from the front. It maybe a bit extreme but this might work for you, I kept the plate safe and just glued it back on after painting.. Good luck Dave

  15. I have developed a craving for a cold glass of gluten-free tomato juice at the moment. - CC

    1990 coupe w/146K

    Can this issue possibly be EGR related???
  17. Since it is already hot rodded why not just buy the reproductions?
  18. I'm looking at a 72 riviera thats been sitting in a garage for several years. he has no idea when it last ran. has probbly a foot worth of dust on it at least. a guy at work is selling it he inherited it from a friend of his family plus 40 other classic cars talk about lucky. any way he has no idea what its worth and I would like to be fair on my offer. the car will need new tiers the old ones are all flat and dry rotted. it dose look like both rear quater pannels will need some rust repair. and the front fenders got some rust at the bottom on both sides. the floors are nice and solid frame looks good all doors and door jams look clean. has a black leather top in good shape I would rate the interior an 8 out of 10. the yellow paint is faded but I might be able to buff it to life. the engine looks clean along with the rest of the engine bay looks almost brand new under the hood. what are rivieras of this year going for and what's a fair price for one in this shape thanks.

  20. I started using NGK on a ford motor years ago, awesome plugs. Got NGK platinum for my buick, but haven't ran them yet.
  21. I also saw the Krit in Reno. First one I ever saw. Their logo certainly got my attention. At that time it was a non-issue.
  22. Art, you are right it is .050 (50/1000). My mistake showing 50/10000 with .0050. I played a lot of football without a helmet. Turbinator
  23. G,day Listers. Simon did your 20 come out of Canberra ? The numbers that you quote don't make sense to me. can I ask if your car has a round front axle and a cone clutch. if so its a model A of 09 if not may be a mod B of 1909. Some years ago John Burke and Edgar Bowen compiled a list of all of the Hup 20 that they could find in Australia. Edgar contacted every owner that responded and updated JBs list. However upon EBs demise the list appears lost Don't forget the national Hup rally next year in Wagga Wagga. Details in our "REGISTER" By the way Edgar could find no real 09 model A in Australia and only doubtful 09 model B. Max Burke Nulkaba 2325 Australia.
  24. Thanks, my father really liked the car. I read that Lincolns and Thunderbirds were using the motor about then, and that there was a Super Marauder in an earlier Mercury with two 4-barrels and 400 h.p. It sounds like thatversion never made it to 1960.
  25. @8E45E that is a very handsome car. Thank you for posting the photos.
