  1. If I were you I would do what ever the hell you want to do... I bet you get lots of thumbs up along the way regardless if you are pulling it or driving it.
  2. That is a very nice looking car! Really like the color!
  3. Car runs great. Never heard of the issue you mention Arnulfo? I spoke with Russ Martin during the rebuild and followed his advice, this never came up that I recall? It has been a while though.
  4. Thanks for the information and advice Winston.
  5. needs headliner installed. new wood, heater core. upholstery is in good condition. Front seats redone.
  6. All numbers match. 75,000 miles. less then 1000 miles on engine and trees rebuild.
  7. not making any offerings. nothing to gain. just looking for an approx value to help me decide on selling it or not.
  8. Thinking of selling my 65 Riv. Car has been in my family since 1967. Rebuilt motor, Trans. No rust. Needs someone to finish off the interior. Any thoughts on Value?
  9. When I turn my car over it fires and will run as long as the key is engaged. Once the key is let off it dies. I noticed my ground strap is broke? Could this cause this issue? What other places should I check. Thanks Bob
  10. I need one headliner bow clip for my headliner on a 65 Riviera. Can anyone help me out? Thanks Bob
  11. No not going, taking my girls to Europe during that time. I will get them in the mail early next week. Enjoy the meet. Bob
  12. I can send you eight, let me know where to send them. BOb
  13. Attached is the original one my dad ordered for our 65 Riv. I was pretty young but I thought he ordered with a form he found in the car when he bought it in 1967? It does not look like the others I have seen?
  14. I am trying to work up the courage to replace my heater core. In doing so I was looking at old articles in the Riview. I was amazed at the wealth of great information in these prior Riviews. So I was thinking it might be interesting to reprint some of these older articles in the current Riviews. I was thinking mainly about the articles that are technical how to or restoration tips of specific components. I know they are all available on line, but it would be interesting to me to get one old article in each new Riview. Retro Riview. Just a thought. Bob
  15. I finally got around to installing my vaccum tank today. It worked great, got my brakes back to where the were prior to the cam install. Cheap, easy fix!
  16. It seem like most of my accessories (power seats, windows, windshield wipers) to name a few all need a seperate ground wire to work. Today while driving, I turned on the windshield wipers and they quit, turn them off and back on and got a shock. I am wondering if there is a master ground wire I dont have hooked up or has went bad. Any thoughts? THanks Bob
  17. Yikes, I did not even think about all the other things that are vacuum driven.. My A/C and heat are not working yet so that issue has not smacked me in the face yet. Let me know if you find a good solution. I sure wish I would have gone back with the original cam spec...
  18. I bought a vacuum canister from JEGGS. I have not installed it yet so cannot comment on if it restored my power brakes back to where they were before larger cam.
  19. Thanks for looking.. Update, I got my new tires, used your walmart lead on an old post. I had a new exhaust system installed today, flowmaster 80 series, fits perfect where the original muffler sat. Sound good and the car seems to run much better. Once I get my headliner in I will be pretty much finished for now, really never finished.. ED, Thanks for all of your help, information and suggestions, I have used them often! You provide a valuable service to this community!
  20. Anyone have a passenger side sun visor they want to sell?
