  1. Howdy I am hopeful that we can make it. Couldn't make the Houma meet last year because of a very ill kiddo. Hope I can catch up with he story telling.
  2. OCM Like the tools. Looked under my '32 seat not long ago with great hopes of finding some original tools. Wasn't happy when I found none. Went to MD to pick up my 32 trunk and it was gone. Have 3 nice old trunks but not the metal one like you have. Do you still have an extra one you would be willing to part with? Our car is green and black and we could really use the trunk on tours. What ever you have (info or a spare) is greatly appreciated. Shoe
  3. Hey Guys i see a lot of places that sell Chevy truck parts, but don't have a lot of GMC parts. I need a paint grade rear bumper and a dash gauge Bezel. Also need a few other interior parts and some emblems. I assume that the rear bumper for a 56-59 chevy stepside will work. Am I correct? Who do you guys recommend using or who seems to have the most parts. I know who to contact for 1930's Buick and Plymouth parts but not GMC truck parts. All help is appreciated. Thanks
  4. I have a 1956 GMC pickup. I am thinking about adding disc brakes to it by using a conversion kit. I want it to be safer in traffic and make sure it will stop better and more like todays vehicles when my wife drives it. Should I dothe conversion on the front and back? I have seen some articles which say just front. All advice and recommendations on products Iis welcome. Thanks
  5. R W Good photos of a good meet. You got a good photo of our '39 Plymouth in HPOF. Got our Original Repeat. There were were a lot of nice cars at the meet. Especially loved the '62 Olds Starfire. Had a black one 20+ years ago and always kick myself for getting rid of it. Thanks for the photos.
  6. Marty We will be up mid day on Friday. Stopping in Kansas to see some good friends and spend the night then we can have a fresh day on friday. Otherwise our two little one would be a terror Friday and Saturday. Look forward to seeing everyone and your cars.
  7. Terry That sounds great. I am looking forward to it. See you and your Buick soon.
  8. Jake Thanks for the Haymarket info. My wife (especially) thanks you for providing us with somewhere to go window shopping and some good places to eat. I will take lots of photos and will be doing an article for our club publication. I will be sure to upload quite a few here as well. Too bad we will miss each other. Maybe the next one. Terry. I am looking forward to seeing your Buick! We will hang out in the HPOF section for a while. Wish I was bringing our '32-67. Would be nice to park them next to each other. Two years ago I was parked next to Marty Roth and his wife at the Canyo
  9. Howdy We are heading to the Central Spring Meet in Lincoln, NE this coming week. Will anyone else be joining us. We will not be bringing our 32-67 this time. We are bringing our '38 Plymouth. Going for the repeat HPOF -Original badge. Should be fun. We are bringing our 8 year old and our 5 year with us. 11 hours of fun in the car!! The Plymouth is my 8 yr. olds car so he is excited. My 5 year old is bummed he cant bring his Buick. (Maybe next time). I am hopeful that I might see some of the cars in everyone's Avatars in person. We shouldn't be too hard to spot.....We will be the st
  10. Jay I will look at my '32 tomorrow to see if I can help. Its a 32-67 but I assume that there not too many differences from the 67 to the 86. I will see if I can send some photos to you. We are leaving for Lincoln NE on Wednesday so it might be after we get back. I will try to get it to you before we leave, but ........well you know. Anyone else headed to the Lincoln meet? Later,
  11. I am definately interested. I have not taken my dash glass off before. Can i take it off without pulling the guages and such?
  12. Howdy So I pulled the front seat of my '32 Buick off over the weekend hoping to find a jack or a tool kit which had been hidden for posterity. I did find a lot of dust and two jack parts (the ones used to raise the jack) but no jack or tools. I have a toolkit for our '39 Plymouth and am looking for a jack and toolkit for the '32. Anyone have a spare they are willing to part with? If not can someone send me a photo or list of the tools which came in the toolkit. Could also use a vintage jack as well. Thanks in advance for your help.
  13. Looking for the dash panel glass for my '39 P8. Doesnt have to be perfectly new. The paint on our P8 has been peeling for years and I want one that looks original and unrestored but is in better shape than mine. How difficult is itto switch out the glass covering the panel and guages?
  14. Maybe I missed it in the above posts, but did anyone find out how many 28 49's were produced in Canada? I know that it was mentioned that 2 were made but if I read everything correctly that was for US production. Just curious.
  15. I knew when I started this thread that I would get some great advice. I didn't think to ask Rhode Island to increase the size of the wires and add a few because I was stuck on keeping everything as original as possible. The more I think about all of the suggestions that have been given, the more I want to make minor changes to the wiring. Thanks for the advice on the LED bulbs and increasing the size of the wiring to the lights. Upgrading the light circuit is a great idea. I also like the idea of a 12 volt inverter. It would be nice to be able to charge a phone or use my GPS or even list
  16. Marty Great story. I am sure Herb and Fran had a great time and were laughing along with you. I look forward to the next time we cross paths at a meet. Regards,
  17. Howdy According to past posts, it seems that Rhode Island Wiring Harnesses is the place to order new wiring harnesses for our '32 - 67. I have rewired vehicles in the past, but they were 20+ years newer than our Buick and we were usually doing a bunch of work on them at the same time. I am considering getting some wiring harnesses for our Buick (Lights and possibly dash) but would like to know how much disassembly will be required. I am not against the additional work, but would like to know what I am getting into in advance. When I look at the wires on the car, it seems like it is strai
  18. Marty Found this Photo of your '37 Buick Limo from the 2012 AACA Canyon Meet. My '39 Plymouth P-8 is the one parked in front of it. I am sure you have plenty of Photos but another one cant hurt. From what I remember the car, which had somewhere around 11K actual miles, previously belonged to the Mayor of New York City and had been used in parades in the past. I remember hearing that dignitaries such as FDR, MacArthur, and Winston Churchill had been passengers. Very Cool! I had fun at that meet and enjoyed meeting everyone. Nice Car Marty.
  19. BarnEy Good looking car. I Must Have Heard The Guy Who Was Working The Event Wrong. 150 Cars Sounds More Accurate. That Is A Great Story On The Packard. If I Remember Correctly, Gordon IsThe One Who Sponsors Our Fathers Day Show Each Year At The Y Down Off 51St Street. Great Car....Both Of You. I Look ForwardTo Seeing The '39 Up Close At The Next Show We Both Attend. Next Time We Will Park Together. Later
  20. Grant, No, Just John Anderson from Pflugerville, Texas. He is a Model T and Model A guy who belongs to our local AACA club. Sorry that I couldn't find that photo of the '39. You would have liked it. Thanks
