    Hershey 2017

    Thanks all. I booked at the Lodge with complete sticker shock. This will be my first time going, hope it's worth it. Every car guy I know says you have to do it at least once.
  3. This will be my first time to attend Hershey, where is the best place to stay while visiting
  4. I think I scr*w*d up. Went to start the car (1936) and the battery was dead. So I put it on charge, when it was fully charged I noticed I left the ignition on during charge, now the car won't start. Any suggestions
  5. Thanks for the great advice
  6. I have a 1958 corvette that I have been working on and finally got started after 18 years of sitting. I removed the heater and radiator hoses and found a lot of rust. Had the radiator repaired and am planning on a new water pump and thermostat. I soaked the thermostat housing in vinegar for 2 days and now no rust. Would I be able to put vinegar in the motor to clean the rust out of it? My radiator guy didn't seem to think it would be a problem but don't run it through the radiator. I still have the old water pump on the car.
  7. Has anyone had any experience buying from auction? Barrett Jackson, Mecum, RM Auction
  8. Is there a specific year flathead that is more desirable than another? Looking at a 1935 car with flathead but would a 1936 be a better choice? How about parts availability?
  9. The reason for the Ford is parts availability. I had a 1937 and 1949 Buick some 25+ years ago and parts were very hard to come by. When I look at the ads in this forum there are more wanted items than for sale in the cars that are not Chevy or Ford. Trying now to find an inspector for the Ford

    Inspection

    The car is in Ann Arbor Michigan. He has advertised it on this site.
  11. What is the best way to find someone to inspect a vehicle before purchase
  12. Looking for Ford or Chevy for the mere fact of finding parts more readily available if the car needs something. Thirty years ago I had a 1937 Buick and parts were very difficult to find back then so I can only imagine what it's like today.
  13. I have been looking for a 1930's car for a few months now and happened to find a 1932 chevy convert and a 1936 ford four door convert. I am drawn to the Ford because of the flathead V8 but the wife loves the 32 chevy because of the rumble seat. I guess to get the best of both worlds I should probably look for a two door Ford convert with rumble seat but can't seem to find one that isn't $60K + or needs a lot of work or made into a hotrod. Which of the two cars above is the most desirable.
  14. How many use a lead fuel additive? Is it necessary? Recently bought a 56 Chevy (stock 265) and it's time for a fill up. Also looking for a 30's vintage car
