  1. Here's a link to a site that lists numerous vintage radio organizations: Antique radios : Antique radio clubs and organizations - The DXZone.com
  2. Lets not forget the Horseless Carriage club: Classified Ads - Horseless Carriage Club of America (hcca.org)
  3. Are you guys sure that isn't a postwar Packard steering wheel?
  4. This particular "beige" color is often called "Champagne". I don't think that it lends itself to this particular two-toning all that well, but it is nice size body and would likely make a nice road car.
  5. I think I was about fourteen years old when I learned where number one was on a Chevy distributor, after that the firing order is printed on the intake manifold. I'm afraid that I would find all of that masking tape pretty embarrassing.
  6. Ironically, I saw a rare Plymouth tailgate for sale somewhere in the last year.
  7. That strikes a familiar chord. I'm pretty sure that they might have been Australian.
  8. I tell guys this whenever the opportunity presents itself--the green on the underside of sun visors is called aircraft green primer.
  9. It truly is a beautiful car. I love the colors. Are you guys surprised that it does not have a leather interior? More importantly, isn't that a bit of wear on both the brake and clutch pedals for 21,000 miles?
  10. Yes! The Maserati part should be a good thing, but it's not in this case.
  11. The woodgraining that we are talking about was Dinoc. 3M's appliable film. It would have been very difficult, if not impossible, to apply DiNoc to a dash once it was installed. So, at some point, dashboards simply had to be bolt in. I was making reference to earlier convertibles.
  12. I've mentioned this before on occasion, so please forgive me for being repetitious--Convertible bodies are far more likely to flex than other bodies because they lack the reinforcement that roofs provide. As a consequence, dashboards are welded into position when the body is first assembled, rather than bolted in place, to provide additional strengthening around the cowl area.. This is why you will often see convertibles with painted dashboards and not woodgrained.
