  1. My most memorable ride was years ago as a passenger in a 1968 Austin Mini Cooper S doing some where well over 100. Like siting on the ground eye level with the car tires you are passing.
  2. Sounds like the last vintage tour but that time it was during the day. If the boarders were open we would have joined in on this tour Bob. Looks and sounds like your having a blast.
  3. Do not knock yourself out. I know when I was young and single I was not looking for another male to strike up a conversation with.
  4. Depends on the price of scrap metal at the time!
  5. Take the screws out and replace with pop rivets on the id tag.
  6. Years ago I took a 13 T engine to Sandy McTavish for a rebuild. While we were talking his wife took the engine block out of my trunk herself and no she was not a large lady. I was embarrassed about that. When Sandy passed in 2014 the T world lost a major player in engine building.

  10. Sorry for making this confusing for some and using a common short form for the word vernier caliper . Here is what I was referring to as a vernier for those that are confused. A picture is worth a thousand words. I think I will take a nap now and sign out and also having my 12 to finish and getting on the road. https://www.wish.com/product/5d6414c8fe85da3c6ce50d71?from_ad=goog_shopping&_display_country_code=CA&_force_currency_code=CAD&pid=googleadwords_int&c=6493229759&ad_cid=5d6414c8fe85da3c6ce50d71&ad_cc=CA&ad_lang=EN&ad_curr=CAD&ad_price=58.00&campaign_id=6493229759&exclude_install=true&gclid=CjwKCAjw6fCCBhBNEiwAem5SOx861LscxxbEA4WrzxaMaTVNsnnPow00Q3El7Cn3wLZf_Vg3kq3ccBoCw6gQAvD_BwE&hide_login_modal=true&share=web
  11. When it comes to precision tools I have mainly Mitutoyo and have passed some of it on to my son in the past year. I replaced the digital screen on one of the verniers last year at a cost of $95 US. But with shipping & handling from the US the total cost came to over $200 and package would fit in the palm of your hand. So the shipping was expensive but with replacement value of over $700 it was still worth it.
  12. Here is a fellow that must be frustrated looking for a car and running a very different type of car add. Giving a little advise. I have never seen this type of an add in the want-adds. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/cornwall-on/pontiac/1557016667 Ontario Cornwall Cars & Vehicles Classic Cars in Cornwall Ad ID 1557016667 Pontiac $320,000.00 Posted about 13 hours ago Cornwall, ON K6J(View Map) Make Pontiac Model Grand Am Body Type Coupe (2 door) Year 1980 Transmission Manual Colour Red Kilometers 23,000 Drivetrain Rear-wheel drive (RWD) Fuel Type Diesel No. of Doors 5 No. of Seats 7 Includes Sunroof Alloy wheels Cruise control Trailer hitch Air conditioning Description Do not be fooled thinking the prices on the cars for sale on Ki_i_ are relevant. They are not ! For some reason, people think a car from the 70"s is worth big money. I see lots of JUNK for sale at unbelievably high prices. They do no sell but they are pushing a fake trend to make you believe a 1976 Lincoln boat is worth 10k. I see so many cra_py cars for sale at top dollar which ain't worth 1/3 of asking price. be patient, bring a friend and ask around if a 1982 Prelude junk car is worth 12500 ! No chance. And for the retards that are trying to sell a 70 Cuda for 270000. That is what I am taking about. Dynacorn sells COMPLETE 1970 CHALLENGERs brand new for 25000 ! new, not rebuild. all new SHEET METAL. Buy and put your tags on !
  13. My 1/4 drive ratchet leaver broke so they gave me a new ratchet. The original one had made in USA on it and the replacement did not. Only problem was the ball was missing on the drive so sockets fall off. After having it replaced again I called snap off and asked where it was made and could not tell me. I wounder if they will mark all their tools made in China???
  14. My sister did the ones in my 30 Cadillac exactly how the original ones were sewn. Three sides by machine and the side where the arm is by hand. Plus made me dinner while I waited is a deal you can not beat. I just noticed I never replaced the screws to original ones.
  15. I did not see one of the most important tools in the picture and its not made by Snap On . That is a green garbage bag to help put the tire back on the rim.
  16. We were on that tour and got some great selfies !!
  17. You have to tell us more than that.......
  18. Was there for my first and last event with CCCA 6 years ago. Yes the Gilmore was outstanding and if in the area I would stop in again. You can spend the whole day there exploring the different venues and have lunch at the diner with a beer. Then after lunch wait in line to take a photo in front of the busiest photographed Shell garage in the world I think.
  19. The V16 valley cover emblems are in bedded into the knob as one piece. These have a stud and a pin on the back like a radiator or head lite emblem. I am thinking an earlier Cadillac may be the fit if they used porcelain ones in the teens and 20s or a later 30s????? The dash emblem on a 1930 is 3/8 of an inch larger than my emblem. Do not think a hat pin would have a brass screw to hold it on.
