  1. Past hour
  2. WOW ! That is a WONDERFUL old movie. Thank you, Morgan for linking us to it ! As an old long distance 4-WD adventurer, I particularly enjoyed the technique and rigging necessary for warping with hub capstans. Those are some incredibly tough young guys tailing on. Well-done using snatch blocks as they did. I am sure I never saw how that was done before. I doubt that was the first time that gang ever snubbed off a load. GREAT stuff !!!! Thanks again ! - CC
  3. As my late father used to say, “There are far more horses’ asses than there are horses”. This elitist jerk got what he deserved.
  4. The GMpartswiki site is good for Chevy, not so much for early B-O-P and Cadillac.
  5. Group is 2.822, and it is a Horn Contact Plate for 1941-1942 Pontiac with flexible steering wheel.
  6. Interesting discussion. Whoever worked on my car before I owned it disconnected the vacuum switch. They installed a starting push button and a disconnect switch which I always had to turn on before starting. There is supposed to be a redundant system that prevents the car from cranking after it starts even if the vacuum switch hangs up. I don’t recall the details. I have a new carb installed with a functioning vacuum switch so I want to try out the original system. A couple of my friends who have the same system run a starting button to the vacuum switch just in case it gets stuck open. I may do that also. Thanks for the comments.
  7. BulldogDriver - Good opinion, but I like your Bulldog better. I have had them for over 60 years and the only reason I like them is because it is the only dog that I am smarter than.
  8. Had one for 25 years parted with it last year ☹️ loved it but it needed a new home.
  9. It looks very much like a Wisconsin but I thought they were all T head motors. I swear a Wisconsin intake would fit that motor.
  10. Watch the way they tighten lug nuts on a NASA car car pit stop. That is not the way I was tough. I have always been told to cross tighten. (This is off subject but I can not get an expiation. How do I get the thumbs up to come back on the lower right corner of my postings?)
  11. why is a towing company running a federal auction ?
  12. Steve. I will try to get a close up of the sign but it may take some time as the owner is out of state for the next 5 weeks. Thanks for your input.

    MoPar Lens Lot

    I will take them if still available. Shipping to 18062 in PA. Let me know about payment. John
  14. Show the guy what 8500 just bought and offer him 4. It might give him a dose of reality. It is a 50's four door sedan. OK, I found this local for 1700 and am working out some over heating issues but it runs tops with a new radiator, brakes, water pump and carb. YES, 1700 for an original car. Rock bruised, a bunch of dings, some bubbling of the paint over the wheel wells. Just your basic 4 door 1953 Plymouth that runs, drives and stops and which now runs fine at 170 with no thermo installed. Will need 200 in tires and a little coolant area work to complete but ? These are out there. (Yes, I removed the J C Whitney gravel flaps)
  15. It has been some years ago now that a guy from from somewhere in South America drove his late 20's Graham from his home in South America to my fair city in Eastern US. By the time he got here the spokes in a couple of wheels were loose where the spokes went through the metal felloe. I had been using a product called Kwik Poly for years to rebuild rotten wood so we took the wheel off, mixed up the Kwik Poly and poured it in the top of the spoke. We didn't know if it work or not but he drove the car to Alaska and then back to South America without any trouble with those wheels. Kwik Poly is no longer being produced as far as I know but I believe XP 2000 may be the same product by a different name. Obviously I'm not saying it would work in your situation. I offer no guarantee.
  16. Nicely restored 1962 Dodge Dart for sale. Starts, runs and drives well. Smooth and quiet running 318 Poly V-8 engine with about 100K miles. All seat upholstery re-done in period fabrics, solid floors, metallic deep blue paint, new wheels & tires, good manual brakes. Original Poly 318 and push-button trans are solid. Shifts perfectly. Newer dual updated exhaust, cleaned gas tank and rebuilt carburetor. All gauges work and even original AM radio is good. Has an original AC unit and it worked, but has a leak and needs recharging. Just selling to fund new unexpected bills, otherwise a great car to enjoy! Drive it cross country and have a blast. Email Jim at or text 630-935-8561, located in Oswego, IL. about 45 min west of Chicago. Clean title in my name. Asking $7500.
  17. The crowd and sales are typically excellent for us from our arrival on Tuesday through about 4:00 on Friday then it tapers off pretty quickly. We stay until Saturday but usually pull out by lunchtime. There is almost nobody in the swap meet areas on Saturday and we make few if any sales.
  18. Hello Robert That would a great help. I'm not to sure if they are the same but it wouldn't hurt to ask your friend or if someone has one that I could borrow to get some castings off. Which would also help my friend from Australia. ( Hi Merv ). Plus if he has a choke assembly as per the picture that would be fantastic. I'm located in New Zealand and my friend Merv is from Queensland Australia.
  19. Pick n Pull bans under 16, but it seems the 16 to 18 age is OK if with an adult.
  20. A factory service manual would be a good start if you want to tackle the job yourself.
  21. Today

    Thank you for the help!
  23. People are saying that all kinds of consumer protection are being eroded these days. People also say this seems like a little reminder it can happen to anyone at any time. Any time. To anyone. Anyone can have something like this happen to them. You too. Any time. And anyone else. Anyone. Including you. People are saying.....................................
