    Blown Tail Light Fuse

    Excellent suggestion that can be used by anyone experiencing similar problems and particularly for an intermittent short.. Too bad that some of the responders get diverted into personal attacks and fail to remember that we're here to help and not to impress others as to how smart we are. .

    Buyers scam

    I wasn't aware that the Nigerian princes were now buying automobiles. Good thing that they now have an agent in the USA to handle tranactions for them.

    27 Packard, Oh, to get it started.

    If the picture is recent may we assume that the car was rolled out of the garage for a photo op. If so an easy way to check if the engine turns, after squirting some oil through the spark plug holes, is to place the car in gear and gently rock it back and forth on its tires. This motion should then be translated to corresponding motion by the pistons. With luck, your greatest problem will lie with stale gasoline requiring draining of the tank and cleaning of the carburetor. Take your time with the resurrection as it's taken a while for the car to assume its current state of repose and it must be awakened gradually. If the car's outward appearance is any indication you may be surprised at how little work it will take to get it running. By the way, if you supply us with your location, you may find knowledegable Packard people literally in your backyard.

    Auto Zone vs NAPA

    To be truly scared just remember these same people or their siblings are manning the TSA checkpoints at our airports.

    What does original mean?

  7. Southeast corner of Roanoke Avenue and Middle Road in Riverhead, New York. Now office space, was a foreign car repair shop in the 1980s and, from the markings, a Studebaker facility sometime prior to that. Perhaps someone else knows the details about the dealership.
  8. Frame Chevrolet, Jericho Turnpike, Mineola, New York, before it became a bakery outlet. It may have been razed by now.

    Henry Austin Clark

    Iron Range Days - wonderful memories. Still have all sorts of things acquired there, some have been put in service, others stand (lie) ready.
  10. Remember the original question. Mr. Gregory is not asking about mechanical damage to a radiator or thoughts about proactive replacement of cooling components. He simply wants to know if metal through aging loses the ability to dissipate (transfer) heat.

    Wood in Sabra sports car

    Here's a start. Much more information via searches. https://petrolicious.com/articles/the-sabra-gt-is-the-sports-car-from-israel-you-ve-been-waiting-for Here's more: https://www.google.com/search?q=Road+%26+Track+article+on+Sabra+auto&rlz=1C1FGGD_enUS497&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwir3tLlnYTfAhUpmuAKHUGDBHEQsAR6BAgAEAE&biw=1440&bih=785 Quite honestly, the subject does not interest me enough to wade through all the Rad & Track stuff. but you should be able to find what you want with a little effort.

    Kudos to AACA

    Here's a story from another website about AACA's willingness to accept and consider supplemental information before reaching a final conclusion. If only other organizations would follow suite. http://www.912bbs.org/vb/showthread.php?54532-Correct-Air-Cleaners-for-67-912&highlight=AACA
  13. Yup. 16-22 mpg depending upon conditions.
  14. Only a framed poster prepared by Automobile Quarterly subsequent to an article they did for the Spring, 1975, issue featuring several of my cars. Strangely enough, I didn't even know the poster existed until I came upon it in a vendor's tent at Laguna Seca in 1986.
