  1. Parts for my 1969 Chevrolet Impala SS that I'm restoring....I also started looking on those Facebook groups as well.... Steve
  2. Other than ebay or craigslist, what other web sites do the membership use for searching for vintage used or NOS parts from ? Thanks
  3. Rhinebeck ? Thanks for the information ! I'll have to take a ride up there on Sunday.
  4. Just out of curiosity, how many of the membership here still own the first vehicle that they purchased ? I still have mine that I purchased new right off the Chevrolet Dealership lot back in 1986, granted, it's not a classic like some of my other vehicles that I own, but I've had it now for 33 years ... kind of special to me.... Dad help me with the purchase and co-sign on the bank loan. Let's see them......
  5. I went with the Atlas 4 - Post Lift model 8000 a few years ago. It came with the casters and drip pans - I ended up purchasing additional drip pans to cover the entire length of the ramp. So far , it's been great ! Also when I purchased the lift, the manufacturer gave me a name of a installer that would pick up the unit at the distribution center, deliver and install the unit - best decision I made !
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. I like it....this could be the stablemate to my SS Monte !
  9. 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.
  10. I had to watch it again.....just to see what I missed the first time. I just like the fact that it's just not only one marque of automobiles.... just wow !!
  11. Just watched Tom Cotter's Barn Find Hunter, episode 46. 37 mins long and it was just unbelievable !! You will enjoy it !
  12. I figure that I would put the old truck to use in picking up our xmas tree today ... picture are 3 of my 4 children, my daughter is currently serving in the Navy. Steve
  13. John - is that a Impala or Biscayne model ?
