  1. Umm... Why would you WANT to make a car backfire? What am I missing?
  2. I would love to work on my 1979 Midget myself, but I'm too busy, being away for college in Massachusetts. Do any of you folks know of anyone who works on foreign cars who is good in Central Pennsylvania? Also, If you know of anyone I should avoid, tell me about that too. Thanks, Seth Zaiser

  4. The Imp is still for sale. I decided not to sell for a couple of months, but now it's back on the market.
  5. Also, I remember when I was three, my dad teaching me how a manual transmission worked and letting me shift when he told me in the Buick.
  6. Wow. Sorry to dig up this old thread, but I think it's neat. I never thought about this. I guess I would have been brought home from the hospital in a 1983 Buick Skyhawk that my dad bought new in '83 when his '77 Datsun B210 gave out. His first car was a '71 Dodge Duster. Not very glamorous, but they're all AACA eligible now. I wouldn't mind the Datsun or Dodge. The Buick looked just like this: P.S., I was born in 1991.
  7. There is a place in Harrisburg called atomic warehouse. They sell everything from about thirties through the seventies. In the back of the store is a lot of excellent clothing from these eras. I bought a Kawasaki Motorcycle jacket there from the 60s or early 70s for when I finally get the chance to own one.
  8. I agree that this is brilliant idea! I try to dress in period attire when I go to an event. My cars are from the 60s and 70s, so that's not hard, but I'm all about this!
  9. I have two old cars - a 66 Imperial and a 79 MG Midget. The Chrysler, I drive like I drive my parents' modern cars. I've been hit before in it, denting the modern car and leaving mine unscratched. I feel very safe. The car will do 100 mph all day and the breaks, though drums would stop a tractor trailer. The Midget though is a different story. It's only thirty years old, but much like a prewar car, I don't feel very comfortable at much over 55 or 60 and drive accordingly. It has a four speed without overdrive. I feel like, if just about anything hit me, they might not even notice. When I need to go somewhere in the Midget, I either print google maps directions for walking, which will give you directions to stay off the four lanes, or tell the GPS to avoid highways. That said, I have a couple of times had to keep up with 75 mile an hour traffic in the MG. It was scary as hell and I'd prefer never to do it again.
  10. I bought my first car when I was 16 - two years ago. A 1966 Imperial Crown. Last year, at 17 I bought my second, a 1979 MG Midget. Still have both but I'm half looking to sell the Imp. They are my only cars so they are collectively a daily driver. The Imp's name is Betsy and the MG is Milton.
  11. Beautiful car and a fantastic website too!
  12. I am restoring a '69 Honda moped and I want to enter it at Hershey next year. What class would that be?
  13. Yes, actually. They are banned from demolition derbies, but not before a significant number of them were destroyed in the derbies. It's because the frame (last year before unibody) Extends so far out under the radiator.
