  1. Probably the best restoration thread I have seen on the internet. Great work.
  2. That was a popular conversion in the 40s and 50s. No modifications to the fenders needed. The headlights can easily be restored to original equipment / configuration.
  3. Valeska Powell with her father's 1935 Ford De Luxe Coupe in Kansas late 1930s.
  4. There was a good conversation about this topic on the forum a few weeks ago.
  5. A "mint excellent condition zero rust 1932 Ford Victoria body" would very likely be attached to a very nice chassis on a running car. Not likely an "excellent condition zero rust" Vicky body would be just laying around waiting to be used.
  6. I am pretty sure that my folks would have hollered at me and my brothers if we had done this (and we grew up in the late 60s and early 70s). We were told not to touch -- or climb on -- peoples cars or vehicles. And we would get a good whack if we did.
  7. NO I am not getting scammed; I would NOT send this guy a cent for anything. There have been plenty of warnings on this page and others about this practice of scammers responding to parts wanted ads. This is another example. . . .
  8. Wow, I received an email from a guy who claims he has the part I need for my 1975 Warshawsky.

  10. Yes, I did not want to complicate things. Thanks.
  11. Warner Brothers had quite a stable of autos that they used in the motion pictures of the 30s and 40s. If one watches enough Warner Brothers films, the same cars can be seen in many movies. Warner Brothers had several big series 1941 Buicks. They can be seen in Now Voyager and The Big Sleep and many others. Have been told that the big cars on the Warner lots were used in movies during the day and to haul around VIPs at night. Wish I had the time to do a book on this topic.
  12. Nope. Just use the license plate info. That is what the hub bub is about right? Use the license plate info and find my street address. West Hammond does not exist -- you will get nowhere with the West Hammond stuff. It is an inside joke between me and another enthusiast. . . .
  13. Phillip Marlowe drove a car like this in the Big Sleep. And Roy Earl drove one in High Sierra.
  14. Glad to know a Hudson enthusiast has saved it.
  15. My Illinois license plate is 3161YK. Now Go!!!! See if you can find me. I'd bet my bottom dollar you cannot.
  16. This was discussed in detail on another forum, with two law enforcement guys chiming in. According to the two LEOs, no one can "look up" your license plate. Not even cops, unless it is for official business. It was discovered that the most important info a scammer could get was the owner's name and the make of car. Any info gotten would have been spawned from those two data points. So, the blotting out of the plate numbers, numbers that can be seen by anybody on the street, are much to do about NOTHING.
  17. This is why the Articles of Confederation failed in the 18th Century. And it is "States Rights" only when it suits some folks.
  18. Found my issue and finished it up. Good reading.
  19. Looking for vintage 1971-1976 Warshawsky Catalogs. Will take J.C. Whitney for the same years 1971-1976. Any condition. Thanks. Tony tony_caroline@att.net

  21. When I bought my 1937 Ford in 2012, I intended on restoring it to new. The car had been in storage since the early 1960s. Since the car was not running or drivable, my wife was suspicious and unimpressed. I began cleaning up the car and was amazed at how original the car was. I decided to get the car safe and streetable for immediate use and abandoned the restoration (besides that, members of my club threatened to find me if I restored the car). It took a few months to get the car going and safe for street use. My wife was impressed that I got it running and looking good. I will only repair or restore what I need to to keep the car drivable and stock. I will find another resto project and enjoy the 1937 Ford as is.
