  1. Ok see what I can do......somehow my son made this in black & white, how no clue..
  2. My rant here in Taxachussets. Registry crooks strike again. My car here regular plates which are hand me down. So this would be the 9 thousand registered vehicle in this state. My father said his father bought the first truck around here being a IH high wheeler with this plate number on it. So he said 1908 plus or minus maybe 1910. This number in all my days cherished by my father, he always said when I go do not loose it.....Ok , the "who cares number plates" are 20 or 30 dollars for passenger cars and they charge me $90 - they claim its a vanity plate which is BS. they should give me the thing or at least for the price of just a run of the mill number plate . Another case of dumb and dumber go to renew "antique" plate on Model T - go there they say plate no good????? My face turning red, blood pressure going up. I don't care, at my age I tell them you idiots issued said plates to me and you are conniving me to buy new or different ones. Not a case of money, its a case of principal to grind an old man as if I were some crook. And the fee is for a 2 cent sticker I can print on my computer. end result; I say boy, I shall see you in court & don't care how much it cost but I gonna fix you. So after he meowed with the supervisor I got the sticker. two hours sitting on a brick bench. Of course (after paid and said and deal done) flipped him the twig.... Old saying " do not mess with a old man he is likely to kill ya" nothing to lose he lived his life no government crook punk stops us seniors We Paid Our Dues
  3. I was watching Utube on the TV came upon street scenes of the 1940's. And right of the bat a 1933 Plymouth station wagon. I thought I once had the only one on the planet. A little different had chrome radiator shell chrome headlights defiantly not a PC. My mind forgets, was chrome shell a early version of a PD or was it PCXX all my 33's had black rad shell & chrome headlights PD bigger pic of the one we had.
  4. Buyer beware! one on ebay last summer $1200 Totally worthless without the control box and dimmer switch. My 59 Continental has it and is possessed!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. I don't think Davids looking for tires, he is looking for a electric system thats 6v pos ground. I am looking too so far these units are all 12vt neg ground..
  6. Had one in a 1949 Ford company car.. The business end took up the whole trunk then it had a big Leece alternator too. I still dream about that car a grey 4dr, spotlight, overdrive ,super silent V8 . The phone was not used for blabbing like today only used for main office payroll use......
  7. Now come to think about this? I don't know how long there was a phone book in the mail box. Cable crooks too cheap to hand out phone books...What do you do? call assistance? then they charge for that. its a sick world...............................
  8. I drove my father crazy to test drive the all new Edsel, because if he did, I would get a new model. Mine is pink and cream color. Still have it still in the box. Somewhere in this very house.
  9. Thats shop 101 for freshmans in high school. They will do it free you supply the material. atleast around here..
  10. Looks export to me Wimbilton '6' another one of Walters ideas half Plymouth half Dodge half Chrysler.
  11. I remember even when quite new they went down the street like a hoping rabbit. Gas shocks not invented yet.......
  12. Just a little info on the above link. I recently sold a 1972 X265 Lhead 6. telltales= electronic ign, alternator and spin on oil filter made in Canada......sam
  13. Sounds like gummed up to me. Try lighter fluid then lube with light machine oil........Far as the ampmeter try jumping the two terminals > now does it charge? If not If I remember these have two coils probably cooked cause something got over loaded. Again if I remember the Hot + goes to one side and the Out + goes to a fuse I think being on the headlight switch. been a long time sam
  14. Ya guilty, big problem was these cars were a dime a dozen. I mean who wouldn't in their right mind would not buy a mint origional paint trunk back 36 Ford for 50 bucks, and my father said thats 50 bucks too much so he offered the dealer 15 dollars.............This pic taken around 1977/ I traded it even for a 1950 F8 Ford
