    ENGINE LUBRICATION

    I'm in the process of restoring my '69 Impala SS 427. Since acquiring the car, I've been using a "fogging oil' spray - I remove the spark plugs, spray the oil then manually turn over the engine by hand. I should point out the the engine is non-operational at this time ( carburetor was removed ) Is there anything else that I should be doing to keep the engine properly lubricated or is the fogging oil sufficient ? Thanks

    seafoam vs stabil

    Good subject..... I've been using Stabil over 30 years in my cars and small engines as well ( mowers, generators, leaf blowers etc. ) I normally fill up the tank, add the required amount of Stabil and run the engines for 20 to 30 mins. I normally do this towards the end of November and then I'll start the engines during the winter months - once or twice per month ( I also run the A/C and heater as well ) . Normally by end of March or the beginning of April - depending on road conditions, I'm back in business.. - never had an issue. I just recently started to use Seafoam on my daily driver to keep the injectors clean - vehicle has over 80,000 miles on it. So I'm new to the Seaform... a friend of mine been using it for years and likes it as well.

    Vintage dealership buildings that are still around

    I was able to take a photo a few years ago where I purchased my '86 Monte Carlo from, "Rhinebeck Garage", in Rhinebeck, New York... it was one of the oldest Chevrolet Dealerships in Dutchess County. The building was sold and divided up into smaller stores.

  11. I've been restoring my 1969 Chevrolet Impala SS over the past few years and I decide to have a authentic Window Sticker produced. When I purchased the vehicle, it came with a folder with a paper trail of information / documents, such as the "Car Shipper" invoice , "Protect-O-Plate" and some repair invoices as well. The gentleman that is making the window sticker for me asked about any information that I may have for the Impala, which I did and scanned it for him. He got back to me, wanted to know if the salesman's name was listed anywhere, I told him no. So, he mention that the name on the P-O-P was listed in the White Pages out in Kansas. I figured that it was a long shot, but I gave it a try. I tried yesterday a few times with no answer. Today, second ring and he picked up. He could not believe it, but after I explain myself and gave him details about the Impala, he opened up to me.... he purchased the Impala in January 1969 when he was 19 years old and drove it for the next 25 years before selling it in 1994. He used to drive it 90 miles a day to a community college.... he wanted to know if the Impala will be worth anything once it's restored...lol. He had no idea of what today's values are ( he has no computer or phone, just a cell phone ) Very nice guy, I plan to mail him some photos of the Impala and I promise him that I will keep in touch with updates on the progress of the restoration.. Oh, almost 50 years ago and he still remember the name of the salesman ! This made my day !! Steve

    Advice on what to do with a 65 Skylark Convertible

    Beautiful car..... keep it! Not too many people have the opportunity to own a vehicle that had one owner AND you know who they are. Take the winter months to go over the vehicle ( maintenance / cleaning ) you'll appreciate the vehicle that you have there and you will be ready to cruise in it next spring ! Steve
