  1. The child's body found in the burned out garage was unfortunately identified as that of Ethan. Hopefully the law enforcement authorities in Idaho will soon find Hannah and this POS murderer.... http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/08/10/authorities-warn-kidnapping-murder-suspect-may-have-homemade-explosives/?test=latestnews
  2. Does it run with a few wires chewed in half? Where is it located? Got any pics?
  3. It looks like a two door but I can't tell for sure. I saw it on Craigslist and am posting it here because it looks like a good car for a reasonable price.... 1958 Studebaker Champion
  4. There are a lot of really clean old classics in your area. I'm sure the nice weather helped to increase the number of cars that were there. Thanks for posting the pics....
  5. Here's some more info. It says that the child's body found at the burned out house with the mother may be that of 8 year old Ethan.... SAN DIEGO — The husband of a woman whose body was found in a burned house near the U.S.-Mexico border said Tuesday that he knew the man suspected of killing his wife and abducting one or both of their children. The disclosure came as a manhunt for James Lee DiMaggio, 40, expanded. The San Diego County Sheriff's Department has said DiMaggio and the victim, 44-year-old Christina Anderson, had been in a close, platonic relationship. Brett Anderson said he knew DiM
  6. I'm not sure what a "close platonic relationship" is but if this scumbag killed their mother and another child then these kids are in serious danger. If they cross into Mexico they'll have additional problems. Hopefully this situation will have a happy ending....
  7. Wrong forum and not enough info.... :confused:
  8. They were abducted last Saturday? They could be thousands of miles from San Diego County by now. Did they know their abductor? Sometimes it's a stepfather or someone else they already knew. Hopefully they'll be found safe and unhurt....
  9. Lebowski is still around. Have you ever been to a Lebowskifest? If not you need to check one out. People show up looking like The Dude, Walter, Donny, Maude, The Jesus, and many others plus several people that were in the movie show up too. Good luck with your cars and your cross country move and keep in touch. By the way, Mr. Treehorn treats objects like women, man....
  10. Here's something you don't see every day. It's a set of 4 ORIGINAL Goodyear tires mounted on Pontiac Rallye II wheels which came on a 1978 Pontiac Firebird Formula when it was sold new 35 years ago. My brother purchased this car recently (which has 26K original miles on it-see pics) and they were included with the purchase. (The car was stored for many years covered and in a climate controlled building on blocks with the wheels/tires removed.) The car now has a set of snowflake wheels on it (off of a Trans Am) and Goodyear Radial T/A tires. The previous owner put the Rallye II wheels and tires
  11. I did a search on Google for "brecht borbein" and came up with this. There were more listings too. Good luck.... BORBEIN-St. Louis, Mlssouri-(1900,1904-1909}-ln 1899 H.F. Borbein & Company began manufacturing solid steel axles and artillery wood wheels at the corner of Ninth and Clark in St. Louis. In 1900, when his quarters became cramped there, Henry Borbein moved to Cass Avenue - and within a year was crowded again, but without sufficient capital to make another move. During 1900 he had built an electric runabout and caught the "automotive bug." Consequently, early in 1901, he joined fo
  12. I had a '54 Capri that I sold a couple of months ago. The Hydramatic shifted well except for a loud clunk when going into third gear. I just drove it like that and it never got any worse so I never worried too much about it. Good luck on your search for someone who can rebuild it in your part of the country. Feel free to post some pics of it when you get a chance. Here's what mine looked like....
  13. Hagerty says #3 condition is $50,600 and #4 is $31,500.... Price Guide Report From Wikipedia.... The Montclair model line also included the Sun Valley, which featured a Plexiglas "bubble" over the front half of the roof section. While futuristic cars were often featured with clear glass tops in the 1950s, consumers rejected the tinted glass roof Sun Valleys (only 1,500 were produced in 1955) because of the heat buildup in the interior of the vehicles. Following lower sales of the Sun Valley for 1956, the version was discontinued for 1957.
  14. Happy Birthday, Henry. Here's 5 of your vehicles covering an 83 year span. I sold the Model A last week but plan to keep the others for a while. Keep up the good work.... 1930 Model A coupe with rumble seat 1952 Crestline Victoria (right rear tire is in a small hole) 1972 F-350 with 9' dump bed (66K miles) 1994 F-150 XLT longbed (57K miles) 2013 Mustang V-6 (2K miles)
