  1. Too new for this forum. It needs to be 1995 or older....
  2. It's not mine but that's a reasonable price IMO... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/197161381572608/
  3. Do you still have the F150 that you drove over here several times? If not then what will your daily driver be now?
  4. Thanks for the info. It's priced at $210 so I guess I'll pass on it....
  5. I ran across this in an antique store this morning and was wondering what kind of vehicle it came on originally and what the possible value of it could be. Thanks in advance for your help...
  6. This video is similar to the one from 1906 in San Francisco on Market Street which was made just 4 days before the earthquake destroyed a good part of the city. I remember seeing a segment on "60 Minutes" in which they did a lot of research to determine the actual date of this video including looking at the weather in the newspaper and then seeing puddles from the rain in the street to corroborate that. These old videos are really amazing....
  7. Hemmings did a nice story on him.... https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2020/02/26/a-fond-farewell-to-clive-cussler-1931-2020/?refer=news&utm_source=edaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2020-02-28
  8. He said several years ago that he was going to retire from driving when he turned 40 and he's 42 now so I wouldn't be surprised if he did retire. He's a multimillionaire who has an engineering degree from Purdue so he has a lot of options of what to do next....
  9. For those of you who haven't seen it here's a 3 minute video of what they call the worst crash in NASCAR history from the 1960 Daytona 500.There were 68 cars that started the race and over half of them were involved in this wreck in which no drivers were seriously injured. That's amazing considering that most drivers were wearing jeans and t-shirts and only a helmet and seat belt for protection. NASCAR certainly has come a long way in the last 60 years....
  10. All of the prayers are obviously helping. Here he is earlier today with his daughters....
  11. I'm glad Ryan is going to be OK. That was a really exciting finish but I really hated to see a Junkota win again....
  12. I was born and raised in Waukegan and remember driving 40 miles to eat at Pizzeria Uno in Chicago because of their outstanding deep dish pizza. Does anyone know if they are still in business?
  13. Bumper Boys products are rechromed in Tijuana and are known to be of inferior quality. They may look great at first but after a year or two there will be peeling and cracking. Pay a little more from a different company. Good luck....
  14. I'd rather pay 1/4 that much for a real one.... https://www.foxnews.com/auto/rare-hot-wheels-chevrolet-camaro-100000
  15. The guy on the right has pics of family members and a car and the guy on the left has a pic of a monkey? What's up with that?
  16. Where did you come up with that figure? A little over two years ago (11-17) I bought a '70 Chevelle SS 396 that the seller had just finished a 3 year body off frame restoration on. He had both the build sheet and protecto plate confirming that it was a real SS. I paid $51k for it and sold it 15 months later for $55k to a classic car dealer in Michigan who resold it a month later priced at $74,900. The dealer had at least a dozen other restored Chevelles and none of them were priced at $100k or higher....

    Not a car

    Does it run? What's the price? Where is it located? What's the top speed-about 50? Thanks...
  18. What a gigantic PITA that would be. In Kentucky you simply put a YOM plate on the back of your classic (that is legally registered with an antique plate) and carry the antique plate (no front plates here) inside the vehicle....
  19. The "non-automobile forum" should have said anything EXCEPT religion and politics so there can be topics as diverse as what's a good brand of chainsaw or what restaurant chain has the best ribs, etc....
  20. It's a nice car but you're not going to get anywhere near $35k for it especially considering that it's a 4 door sedan. What was your source to determine that the market value is $40k? Also, where is it located?
  21. Welcome to the site from a fellow Stude owner. Where are you from? Like someone else said, we like pics here. Are you familiar with the Studebaker Drivers Club? They have an online forum and also an outstanding monthly publication called "Turning Wheels" which is about 70 pages of articles, advertisements and color photos. Check out their website for more info.... https://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/forum
  22. This Ford 223 straight 6 engine was in the '60 Edsel that I bought several years ago. It ran good but used a quart of oil every 50 miles so "Junkyard Jeff" and I replaced it with another 223. You can put a set of rings in it and reassemble it or simply put it in the back of your pickup truck in the winter for extra traction in the snow. You'll need to pick it up at my home in the Louisville area. Please send me a PM for contact information. Thanks...............Dave
