  1. I am on some other forums that have a place to put parts or services that are free. I buy and sell a lot of parts but I often have things that get thrown away. A good example is incomplete sets of pistons or rings or parts that aren't in very good condition. Sometimes I have odds and ends that I either can't identify or just doesn't have much value. These items usually get thrown out but I always think maybe somebody would want these items. I think there is a need for a place to list things that I am willing to give away for the cost of shipping. I hate to throw stuff away so maybe this would

  4. So much time for so little! In fact, I spent 3 afternoons to install the front seat into my '72 coupe, scale 1:1. Even if it was only 5°C, I did not felt the cold temperature because those seats are not easy to handle, especially alone! In between, I could do the tortuous parts between the starter motor and the transmission. I began the parts attached to the starter motor, going forwards. At one time, I had to begin the adapter which is part of the transmission's case, hoping that no major flaw would appear when all is assembled. I'm making no illusion: the assembly is looking similar to the

  6. Railway Express Agency was a company separate from the railroads that handled parcel shipping through railroad stations. They developed this style van body which was manufactured for them to mount on a variety of truck chassis. Railway Express Agency - Wikipedia This REA sign was on about every railroad station throughout the nation.

  8. I often give perfectly serviceable but unwanted things away rather than trying to sell them. Everything from appliances, to campers, to odds and ends. Sometimes they go to people I know or they get donated to a couple of local charities that resell them. I take no IRS deductions. Besides being good karma, it makes me feel good, it de-clutters my life and it means I don't have to deal with tire kickers.........Bob

  9. And the same for the hinges Then to finish, the screws of the hinges We do not realize it in the photos but the sanding on the bench is very long with all these springs, rods, frames, place not accessible, ..., and painting is not easy too Then I took all this to the saddler on Tuesday evening

  11. Hi all, I thought I would introduce you to our “new” addition to the family, our 1963 Buick Skylark convertible. With the all aluminium 215cu in (3.5litre) Buick 200HP V8, it has the dual path turbine drive 2 speed automatic, power steering, push button radio, two speed wipers with washers, clock and deluxe wheel covers. Restored and sold in 2015, she was repainted in Arctic White, with a new white top and red interior, same colours as she came from the factory. Motor and transmission were also rebuilt with speedo reading just over 66,000 miles which could be origi

  13. I think I am one of the few people that appreciates the look & drive of the 34/35 Cadillac. I have a 35 V12 limo that I really love to drive even though it is big, heavy & lumbering. 34 is first year for independent coil spring suspension and they handle & ride much better than the earlier cars. They are rare due to being the lowest production years of the depression. In todays market, about $40,000 is a good price for a more popular early 30's V8 coupe. It looks like a well done car but I can only bring up about 10 pics of exterior and none of interior, underside or engine. I wo

  20. Ted, The wheels aren't to difficult to find but tend to be a little "used". They can be refurbished professionally or if you have some time ,your self. The hard thing to find are center caps. The emblems are usually cracked or missing ( similarly to the 63-65 Knock off wheel covers- hint hint Turbinator ). They also have special lug nuts, so be sure to have them if you want to mount these wheels on you Riviera ( or Toronado or Eldorado -not correct, but cool none the less ).

  21. Back to the Black & White - Dashboard is of a 1938 Nash, Publicity photo issued by Nash as part of their PR Press kit. The lady was not listed as a factory accessory that went with the car.... The photo of the engine I believe is of an L29 Cord in the Weymann bodied coupe that I posted some earlier views here someplace several months ago. Photo was taken some time in the early 1950s (if it is that car) when located in Brooklyn, NY and owned by author and model builder Herb Lozier.

  23. Installed the rear window, the dashboard, and bolted up the steering tube. I wanted to make sure the tube was in its proper location before I final trimmed the floor mat. Added the insulation felt to the mat, cut triangular pieces for the sides of the seat box and finished up the floor. I had a pair of take-off kick panels from a 31’ and repurposed them for this truck. The pickups didn’t have kick panels but I’m putting a full interior in this truck for the owner so after I trimmed them to fit, I finished off the back edges with some 1/4” fender welt. I cut a piece of heavy interior board to c

  25. Ok, I'm going to get the ball rolling. For lack of a better place to put it, I will start a thread under "parts for sale". The heading will read "Free to a good home -Paying it forward". I will list the first item up for grabs. Feel free to continue to post items under the same thread, perhaps people will get used to seeing it there if it gets used enough. If it works I plan to add an item each week as long as the junk (I mean merchandise!) holds out. I am going to personally limit my items to things I can easily ship. Large items would require people to come pick it up which is ok but

  27. Terry my friend, GREAT STUFF! the early races also were an inspiration for the French artist Edward Montaut . Here are two views of the same poster, one is a close up. Sorry for the glare, it is in its original frame and there was no way I could position the thing to photograph it without getting some glare! This was hanging in the Long Island Automotive Museum long after it closed, on a wall, and I bought it at an Iron Range Day when semi annually Austin Clark would invite people out to roam around and pick things out , make a pile, and then sell off after a lunch at John Duck's restaurant i

  28. I have a 1918 E-45 Buick. Mechanically the same as yours. First, get an owners manual, there are reprints and there is a ton of information there. Bobs Automobilia has them. After sitting for so long there are many things you should check before attempting to start the car or even turn the engine.. Try to move the valves by tapping on the rocker arms with a hammer, use wood between the hammer and rocker. See if all the valves will work. If you have a stuck valve and try to turn the engine, you may bend a pushrod. Oil the valve stems with penetrating oil. Remove the plugs a

  31. I'd likely put stuff on there a lot. I mentioned pistons above as an example. If I have a box of NORS .030 oversize pistons for say a '36 Pontiac six, but two out of the six pistons are missing, it's hard to sell an incomplete set. In many cases such as this the incomplete set would simply get scrapped. I hate to throw stuff away and who knows, maybe there is some Pontiac guy out there that would love to have them. I can post the pistons someplace on here and just put "Free Pontiac Pistons", but in my mind it's be nice to have a specific place to post that "Free" thread.

  39. The Mustang vs Cougar issue is pretty simple. 75% of the Mustangs lean towards being musclecars while 25% of the Cougars do. That doesn't mean there are not cool Cougars, but they are harder to find. I still miss my GTE.

  42. Remember to have the pump wired with an easily accessible cutoff switch. I’ve had two engine fires, a Packard and a Pierce, almost lost the two cars because I thought the electric pump was shut off, but they weren’t. I refuse to use them now, if your fuel pump and starter work correctly, they’ll get gas to engine just like they did when new. The numerous discussions about proper starter grounding and cables affects fuel delivery, too. Remember, if the cars had been that temperamental when new, none would have sold.
