  2. I bought a '50 Studebaker in 2008 and it came with the original bill of sale. The woman who bought it new put a $5 deposit on it....

  5. In 1997 I drove from Chicago to San Diego in 38 hours in a '97 Saturn SC2 and that includes stopping at a motel in Oklahoma for 5 hours of sleep....

  7. I replaced the 4 bolts on the bottom end and the leak has been reduced by about 95% so I'm happy with that. The other bolts are up too high for me. I removed the oil stains off the garage floor in about 5 minutes by grinding cat litter in them with my shoes. Thanks again to all who offered advice....
  8. Anyone from the same country as Angus Young is OK in my book. I had a '49 Buick a few years ago. They're great cars. Welcome to the site....
  9. All three bolts that I have removed so far are different lengths. Is that the way they did it at the factory? My guess is no. Also, the longest bolt is what I'm using to replace the others. I'm going to replace as many as I can. I bought a 1/2" ratcheting box wrench yesterday so hopefully that will make the job easier on the higher bolts....
  10. I put this on the SDC forum but didn't receive any responses for a couple of hours so that's why I put it on here too. Hopefully the longer bolts that I'm using now will solve the problem. Thanks....
  11. I bought some bolts that were half an inch longer and have put in three of them so far. I ran the engine for 5 minutes and didn't see any oil leaking so that's cool. I'm going to try to replace the rest of them but am not sure if I can reach up that high. What do you call the thing I'm putting the bolts into? Does oil run through it?.
  12. I bought this '49 Stude pickup in July and it didn't leak very much at all. In the last month it's been leaking worse and worse. I tried to tighten the bolts in the round piece in front of the oil pan (Sorry-I don't know what you call it) and they wouldn't tighten very tight at all so today I removed two of them and they're different lengths. (See pics) Should they be longer than that? Another half an inch maybe? Could this be the cause of the leaking oil? As you can see from the pic of my garage floor it leaks pretty good when the engine is running.The engine is a Studebaker 289-2v out of a '62 Hawk. ***NOTE: I moved the truck over a little so I wouldn't have to lie in the oil but the leak is directly under the center of the engine.*** Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance....
  13. It says Bel Air so it's a Chevy. Pretty sure it's a '55....
  14. My grandmother had a '60 Bel Air 4 door sedan with these same colors that she bought new and drove for 20 years. Good luck with the sale....
