  1. I saw a 64 in Newark; the guy who owns it furnished cars for movie sets. He was asking around 11-12k but the car looked pretty complete. Dark blue if I remember. If you want send me your contact info and I'll stop by. It was there 2 months ago.
  2. I wonder if Jason could reach out that guy from Florida, John Saluppi ( Staluppi?) the guy who has his own booth at Mecum Auctions? I saw him sell literally millions of dollars worth of his collection, then buy a like amount. The announcers said he like to "rotate his stock" so to speak. Obviously $ is no issue to him, and he would appreciate a work of art like this. Anyone know Jay Leno?
  3. If you send your booster to Dewey ( which I think you should) ask him about re-finishing it with the proper finish. My 67 was originally a gold cad/ I let him re-finish the booster. the cap for the reservior, AND the hood latch!! He suggested I throw in the hood latch, and I was really happy.
  4. Years ago my company washed and repaired a high rise bldg in Ft Lee Nj. Really windy. The chemical we were using was ammonium bi flouride ( not available anymore). The wind drift caused the chemical to land on cars below; even tho we had guys stationed on the ground with water hoses, the metal trim of certain cars was damaged beyond repair. The only cars damaged? Mercedes Benz. We were working over a stock brokerage company. Any exposed stainless , mirrors, trim, around the headlights ( this was 30 years ago) was ruined. What a lawsuit!!
  5. I had callled my IT gut, thinking my computer had been hacked. MAybe a little advance notice next ime.
  6. Wasn't there some things written about not using ex manifold gaskets because it's better not to have something (gasket) interfering with letting the manifold cool off evenly?
  7. Good one Ed! Little Willie was a chemist Little Willie is no more What he thought was h2o Was h2so4
  8. I have a nice hood spear for sale; prev owner had it re-chromed. He said it was from a 66. Asking $50
  9. Selling Star Wars air cleaner with original base and nut. It was restored, has a few dings but looks good. First time I displayed it at a show I won "Dealer's Choice". Co-incidence or not? Asking $750 plus shipping. Trying this forum first, then V8 Buick . Thx, Sam from North Jersey
  10. I was having trouble listing my car so I went to Google and asked 'How to sell a car on Ebay". I was directed to a site that looked exactly like e-bay's site re asking info about the car. Everything looked good until it asked a lot of info re credit card #'s, pay pal info, checking acct, etc. When I had ebay on the phone I told them about it. They said it sounded like a scam but they didn't seem too concerned. I made a report about it anyway.
  11. I was on the phone with them twice before getting my ad straight. I went thru e-bay motors; there's a way to list it for a set price as opposed to an auction "Sell it Now" I think. You can always say "Or Best Offer" in your text. It isn't easy. I got more action from Hemmings. Careful with craigslist- home of the scammers.
  12. I bought mine from OPG and pd $499 incl delivery, I think, about 5 yrs ago. I chose the one that had the bearing already set into place. Never had a problem since.
  13. Have a good look at the rear seal while you're there. You'll never be that close again.
  14. By the way I posted ( last week) which venues I used and the rate of serious buyers. Hemmings was #1, followed by e-bay. Classic Auto Trader was zero ( only has it on for a week) and Craig's list had a few but that;s where the scammers lurk. Luckily I found a local buyer. And here in Jersey we've had about half of our cruise nites and shows rained out, which was my biggest disappointment. The local guy saw it on Hemmings ( the electronic version, not the book). The book that I'm still listed in doesn't come out till September.
