  1. Keep up the good work Jason. Forgive me for asking - the screen is part of the oil filtration system? I am not familiar with this, but enjoy the chance to learn! Chuck in Kansas
  2. Stefan - Thank You for taking your time to photograph, post and memorialize your Olds. Your stories and explanations rival a time-tested storytellers tales. You sure have a beautiful car and the work you're doing is noticeable. Keep up the good work, I wish I was in your region, to give you a hand. Chuck in Kansas
  3. Happy Anniversary Martin. We are still following you and understand - it's not about how fast you get it done, it's about how much fun you have doing it! Thanks for a fun thread, a great car, and Happy Thanksgiving! Chuck in Kansas
  4. Chris - Happy Anniversary to you and Mightyfast! Glad to hear an update from you. Still digging on your car and thread. Still my second favorite behind Johns! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! Chuck in Kansas
  5. John - the award medallion looks great on the McLaughlin-Buick! Congratulations, woot-woot! Hey - is that radiator leaking still/again? I sure do envy and enjoy this thread. Thank you once again. Chuck in Kansas
  6. Thanks for the updated, midpoint photos. The metal masters have done a wonderful job. Please do post more of this beast when its finished and of your other Willys finds. Chuck in Kansas
  7. Yes John, he is still into cars. Period. They are pretty, expensive and I received no enjoyment from them. Show me a desert junkyard and I will enjoy that more than his high-dollar street rods. But thanks for trying John. We know where your heart is! Chuck in Kansas
  8. Bitter and sweet. It's bitter for us that we won't be looking in on Northern Ontario and a great restoration any longer. Sweet that you've succeeded with your goal and the true meaning it has brought to you and your family. Thank You Pat, enjoy the fruits of your labor, Happy Centennial Birthday on behalf of your Dad. Chuck
  9. Congratulations John. That Jag is a beauty! Beautiful pictures of amazing cars. The 1967 Shelby GT500 and the 1963 Galaxie 500 caught my eye, but many interesting cars. Thank you for sharing them with us. Chuck
  10. Looks like you had a great Fathers Day Pat. Congratulations on a safe and problem-free run. Great photos too. I love the very first photo - 1941 Chrysler Coupe. The 1964 Olds Starfire is a fine one too! Thanks for the photos - time to rest up! Chuck
  11. Chris - your Avanti looks great. If I haven't told you, the color you chose is excellent. She is meant to be subtle until riled. Once riled, she's ... - you fill it in Chris! Enjoy the beautiful weather and thank you for the pictures of another VA treasure. I appreciate seeing the grace and beauty, being I'm employed by the VA, times 20+ years. Chuck
  12. Hey John - time to rest a bit after that stretch of busy-ness. Great job with the Jag. Just where are you going to put all the hardware you keep bringing home? You'll have to build a separate building for all the trophies, plaques, and honors that your wonderful vehicles garner. I agree - the Avanti shows well and the JD looks tough now with it's new front "bling!" Keep up the great work. Chuck
  13. That JD is looking real nice John. The llamas are sheared twice a year, is that correct? Good luck at the show this weekend! Chuck
  14. Martin - is that FE a 292ci or a 312ci or a 406 ci or... ? It is great fun following your restoration. Keep up the amazing work! Mercury Fan Chuck
  15. John - I agree with Scott. Nice deal on the Deere. What's the story with the airplane parked in the pasture? Do you know? Beautiful table too. Those pieces take up so much space in the dining room, but when you need one... Keep up the great thread! Chuck
  16. John - Thank you so much for maintaining such an excellent thread. Your dedication to your cars and devotion to all those that love antique cars is highly commendable. Congratulations on reaching 100 pages and please, keep driving on. Also Happy Mothers Day to Alice - your best buddy! :-) Chuck
  17. Coach, Pat, John - can you put it on jackstands, in gear (1st), clutch out, and turn the wheels backwards to turn the engine backwards? I know, in theory, it sounds good, but is it feasible? Echoing my thoughts! It's such a nice car Coach - keep up the great work! Chuck
  18. Great job John. A proud moment for sure. Thank you for sharing your experiences and I hope you had a safe trip home. Chuck
  19. Thank you Pat for the museum link. My bucket list is getting longer for North-of-the-border stops. There looks to be many beautiful cars there. Hats off to those that donate the cars and those with the responsibility of taking care of them. Chuck
  20. Pat - that 33 Pontiac looks easy compared to your Chev project. If the Pontiac is owned by a museum, they have plenty of cars needing attention, judging from your pictures. They can let one go for cheap, to a good home. You'll have to use your charm and a few before/after pictures to convince them its a good plan. Happy motoring Pat! Chuck
  21. Morel - "The Studebaker factory opened in 1948 and closed in 1966 — three years after the company’s headquarters in South Bend, Ind. shut down. The Hamilton building has been coming down in bits and pieces for some time." Last call for the Studebaker on Mars From this article, I deduce that a the 1930 model would fall out of the country differential theory. This article also supports my rebuff to your thoughts. http://thehamiltonchaptersdc.ca/SDC%20Handout.pdf I hope this helps answer your questions Morel. Thanks for letting us learn from your picture. Chuck
  22. ...and a slightly bigger, yet poorer photo. Chuck
  23. I think Fleek has it. 1931 Studebaker model 54 with a front bumper from a 1930 Studebaker and aftermarket sealed beam headlight bar (circa 1940 or later). It sure was a warrior! Chuck
  24. Thank you Chris. Your photos are excellent. That is a great spot chosen for Steve, may he rest in peace. It's a beautiful view of Virginia. In a family of 4 boys, I'll bet there was always mischief going on, in one form or another! Your photo of the Confederate grave and monument reminds me, as it should to all, that freedom is paid for with an irreplaceable currency. The price of freedom is paid with the lives of a few who defend many. It is the duty of those who served with them to ensure this sacrifice has not been made in vain. The Price of Freedom Thank you all on Memorial Day, Chuck
