  1. I know of a 1930 Cadillac V16 roadster sitting in a boat house up here that is a basket case. The body was restored and painted about 30 years ago in California where the car came from. I remember he had the chrome plating and engine done and then stored away. I know the owner very well and I believe he will never get back at it.

    What have you ploughed up

    Farm behind me has a 1957 Chevy convertible buried in their dump in a gully. Been there from the late 60s. Some day when I get ambitious I will dig it out with my loader and make lawn art out of it.

    Film rental

    Be very carful when renting your car to a motion picture studio so you may think. Usually the car will go through a broker type of business who will re rent it to the studio. I found out the hard way when my car came back with no front seat cushion on a touring. I waited months to settle after many phone calls and promises. Never again.

    Coolant to water ratio?????

    Seeing that jug is yellow and if it is Prestone do not use it if your radiator is copper.
  6. We had a fellow send a letter to our region several years ago upset that there was a car on tour with aftermarket mags. If the mags are period vintage I myself have no problem with them or any other vintage speed accessory. On the National Vintage tours I see Ford Model A's with Ford V8 wire wheels and T's with wire wheels so where do you draw the line. We should except a car from the 60s with different period accessories that were available then like we have for the early cars. On another note is there any difference in a Columbia rear end on a 30s car verses a Winters quick change on 30s?

    What is it?

    It can not be a bumper clamp as it should be contoured for a double or single bar bumper on the back side. Also its backing should be a strong forging to accept a bolt to be held in place on the bumper. Who knows it may be the cover for the drain hole on an ice box.

    GM Oshawa Plant in Canada to Close

    Do not know % but if you run a business in Canada and you lease a truck it is 100% tax deductible.

    In the not to distant future barn finds will be headed for the recycle yards. The big thing will be drawer finds when someone comes across a rare highly collectable mint in box cell phone.

    CADILLAC 1926 314 TOURING RADIATOR BADGE, INSIGNIA

    I believe the actual crest should be the same configuration.

    1958 VW Alken D2 Roadster

    Has the lines of a TR6 I think. I think I would buy a TR6 instead and let the Alken become a barn find in the chicken coup.

    When you look at the job he did upholstering the rumble seat makes me wonder how good of a job he did on the rest of the car. No engine compartment shots to judge. It is a desirable rare car but I think the price is high unless it is a 99 pointer.

    Did anyone hear if they closed any car plants in Mexico??? GM only has an engine plant and a car plant left around 5,000 employees in Canada.

    GM Oshawa Plant in Canada to Close

    Not a rumour as the announcement is tomorrow. Of the 23,000 workers there in the 80s there is only 2,500 there today and only one shift. Mark quality is not an issue as much as profit is. The truck plant working 3 shifts was the highest in awards then was sent to Mexico in 2008. So much for the 100 years of GM building Buicks in Oshawa. They are also going to close some plants in the US I was told. The bulk of the work will go to Mexico and a dribble to the US but you will not hear that.
