  1. They probably have a policy that you can't return parts once you have installed them. Good luck getting a refund. When I need an air filter for an old car I look up the part number online and then go to a local auto parts store or Walmart WITH THE OLD FILTER so I can make sure that the new one is the same size as the old one. Try that next time.
  2. Thanks for taking the time to take all the pics and post them here. What is the story on the weird-looking vehicle with only one front tire? Was that built in the US? I've never seen one before...
  3. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/edsel/ranger/2266888.html#&gid=1&pid=1
  4. At 1:37 did you notice the poster called "Rube Goldberg Machines" that he probably made for a school project as a kid?
  5. Is this guy really smart or does he just have too much free time on his hands? Either way check out this 3 minute video....
  6. Whoever wrote the article must not be much of a car guy if he doesn't know the difference between a Road Runner and a Barracuda....
  7. In case anyone is interested, here's more info on James John Regan whose grave is pictured in the "not BBQ day" photo I posted earlier. He died in Iraq in 2007.... http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/jjregan.htm
  8. May all of these heroes rest in peace....
  9. Were you playing some of his music on the cassette player?
  10. I've heard some horror stories about transport problems before but yours is definitely one of the worst. Hopefully the driver will be arrested and prosecuted someday. Can you post a pic or two of what it looked like when it arrived?
  11. What's to keep people from cruising down there just to see what's going on? All of the organized events may be cancelled but I'll bet there will still be thousands of classic cars down there anyway....
  12. Why would you feel the need to make this stupid comment and then immediately follow it up with a valid comment on the California VIN lookup tool? A lot of other guys have left intelligent comments here so they obviously don't think it's an "utterly ridiculous" thread....
  13. I think that's an old ad from a couple of years ago but the name Ted sounds familiar. Salinas isn't too far from San Jose but 415 is a Bay Area area code and doesn't cover Salinas but I may call it tomorrow and see what happens....
  14. That video came from the YouTube account of someone named Duder Lebowski. Does that name sound familiar? That was me of course. I ended up buying another 223 Ford straight six from a guy near Erie, PA. I mentioned on this site that I had never done an engine swap and was contacted by Junkyard Jeff who made a total of 5 (or was it 6?) trips here from Dayton, Ohio and we got it swapped in and the new engine didn't smoke at all. Here's a link to the video if you want to check it out for a few laughs. Thanks to Detective Keiser for finding it....
  15. I asked about that the last two times that I went in there and was told that they need the name and address of the buyer. When I go in again next February I'll specifically ask for an "incomplete title transfer form" and see if they have even heard of it. In the meantime I was hoping to get the name and address of the buyer like they told me to do. By the way, I'm not losing any sleep over this since the annual fee for the Edsel is only 68 cents but it's just kind of annoying to be told that I have to pay it year after year....
