  1. I havent posted for a while but I know of several kids high school age that do appreciate our old classics. I grew in the days when you had to work problems out with pen and paper. My first car was a 41 Ford sedan for $75. I had a thing for cars then and took auto shop in high school and had to learn from help fron older mechanics etc. My first set of wrenches was a hand me down from an oldtimer that brought a new set and thought they would help me out. I still have some of them. I have had my 64 Buick Wildcat Convert since 79 My Sons are grown and have kids and used to help me alot and still are into the old cars. I will always be there to lend a ear to a young one wanting to learn. Now I ask them to help me make my computor do something I cant make it do. So I feel its good to keep our hobby going by giving help to someone wanting to learn. There are some that are smart A**es but I know some old ones also. Give the kids a break if they are interested Gary

  14. Still for sale. Looking for a good offer. Needs the room. I know several folks with parts around the country
  15. Offers will be considered. He needs the space since he has to move soon. I would, but I only have room for my 64 Cat in my garage. And I know several guys that have parts that would help to bring her back. I hope that Sandy didnt affect anyone on the board. It looks bad. Like the Katrina disaster.
  16. Bryan, I do have one of my own to drive around town. This car does need a lot of TLC, it has rust to deal with as pix show. The best of the car is that it does run and drive well, but has a radiator leak to drive to far. I have heard it run and goes into gear well. It has been in dry storage for 2 yrs+ and started right up w/o lifter noise and runs smooth. The top was fairly recent and in good cond. and the glass is good. But needs body, paint and upholstry work. But its a rare car that needs a home. I am about 90 miles from the car. If someone is interested in a project and wants to make my son an offer just email me and I will have him call you.
