  1. I asked on the what is it section and received some great patent info which is appreciated. Do you think this was used on a specific vehicle or was it aftermarket? I would love to put it on my 24 roadster but there is no good place to mount it. Any thoughts on its value? Thanks Dave
  2. Does anyone have any info on the Green Hand turn signal pictured below? It looks like it had a specific mount but probably aftermarket. Thanks Dave
  3. I found tubing at McMaster Carr for my 31. It was stainless and slightly larger than needed but the machine shop that took the old ones out (2 on a 31) made the tubes work. Dave
  4. I did not catch where it is at (city) I think Michigan ? Thanks Dave
  5. My father and one of his race cars at his Manhasset, LI service station. He raced from 28-32. He spoke of a Miller Ford and the other I remember was one with a v8 Hisso airplane engine converted to 4 cylinders. Not sure which one this is. Dave
  6. A few years after buying a 62 Corvette in 1977 I got the idea to call the state of Florida to get a list of the old owners. For a small fee they sent me copies of all the past owners titles going back to the GM MSO. I called information and amazingly got the numbers of all the old owners and was able to talk with them and hear their stories. Unfortunately, the first owner did not have any of the original paperwork but it was fun talking with them all. Dave
  7. I did find my listing of tag numbers to series type so if I get a tag number I can say for sure. Most are type A. Dave
  8. Most all I have ever seen are type A but here are the instructions; I may be able to look up the series from your tag number if you post it. Dave
  9. I think Ed has helped find the problem but in case someone sees the title here are the Delco Remy instructions;

    I keep forgetting online resources. Lots of interesting info on engine codes but I did not find OTL in a quick search, are you sure that is correct? If I am reading the prefix correctly it was made in Flint on June 9th. Dave
  11. Similar to what has already been posted but from a 490 instruction book. Dave

    The numbers stamped on the pad will tell you how it was originally built . I have looked them up in the past in Chevrolet parts books and maybe Motors manuals if I am remembering correctly. Dave
  13. Hope you are okay. My cabriolet windshield had some bad cracks in it and the plater was able to weld it back together. It looks good. Dave
  14. My head still hurts when it rains.
  15. Interesting. I sent a private message looking for more photos, inside, engine underneath if you can. Also, what price are you asking? My email is in the pm. Thanks Dave
  16. It is some of the same photos and a poster named Davlet said it sold for 23K$. The op has not responded to my pm. Dave
  17. It looks like this car is pictured in Matt's 33 Buick for sale ad in the Buick section, or am I crazy? Dave
  18. I have noticed the same thing, I thought it was they were in a hurry to get back to their phones so they stop as soon as they can. It also seems they are slow to get moving once the light changes. Could be I am getting to be a grumpy old guy but who knows... Dave
  19. I don't like body work and should have done it first. I am making slow progress on a 31 Chevy Cabriolet with one more door to da and finish up the body work. Dave
  20. GM probably had training centers in the 20's but all of the GM training centers I have visited were constructed in the early 50's to the 60's. As far as the certificates, the instructors would add in the specific info as to the date, tech, and course to a pre-printed certificate supplied from headquarters. I would guess that it would be very tough to find a blank to recreate what you are looking for but anything is possible. Do you know what city the training center was in? Dave
  21. The one on cardboard is 31-32 Chevy Cabriolet and maybe others, the one in the door is a 31 60 series Buick coupe.
  22. Last time I looked the Autolite Mexican production moved to China for their brand and ACDelco older applications. The plugs don't look the same as the Mexican or US manufactured plugs. Not sure who is making the UK plugs. Dave
