  1. Try this one! It has the size and speed. http://www.harwoodmotors.com/vehicles/inventory_details.php?id=1084 Matt Harwood is a member of this site.
  2. Great mix of cars! Thank you.
  3. I told them I only have money for cheap beer and pretzels. The other stuff they are selling is 50 years too late for me 😀. I’m sure I would enjoy the beer and pretzels more at this point in my life.
  4. Time to move this stuff on. I’m not an eBay seller so here you go: 1244899 1949 Dodge DeSoto back up lens NOS 1340191 1950-52 Dodge Rt rear lens NOS 1810411 1958 Plymouth backup lens 2pcs NOS 1879052 1959 Plymouth tail light lens 3 pcs, used. two very good one with small chip. Seven pieces total. All for $30 plus shipping. PayPal, personal check, money order ok.
  5. One of my favorite small cars 1964 Chevy II
  6. In my younger days, a 1963 Impala SS 409 4 speed. Now maybe a 1950 Buick Roadmaster.
  7. Just got mine this morning! Now I feel complete.
  8. You are correct Matt and John, people always try to find a way to beat the system and if you use courtesy and respect for rules it will benefit everyone. Every day I run into goofy stuff like stores that place merchandise in the isles and I get stuck in my push wheelchair to find a way around them or back up all the way where I started from. Frustrating when trying to buy cloths or any other item where getting to them is impossible. Parking can be fun, some older parking lots have the handicap spots on hills, another fun challenge in a push it yourself chair. New parking does not. Sometimes it’s frustrating and laughing is the only cure. The assumptions made about ADA rules always interest me. I think some people make up their own rules and others make assumptions that are not correct. My employer dismissed me when I became disabled, said I could no longer do the job I was hired to do. Fair? I don’t know know and justifiable under ADA, again I did not investigate as the job was not that wonderful. Still, a little respect goes both ways. If Hershey had closer handicapped parking and special van spots I would try going again. The macadam is easy to push on. The grass show field is out, too hard to push. No power scooter for me as my level of disability would require a special scooter at $15k or more. Paraplegic screws with blood flow to the lower body and skin breakdown is a danger when bouncing along on a basic scooter. Not complaining, just trying to aid in the discussion.
  9. As an amputee and paraplegic I still have no idea about the ins and outs of the ADA. No book or rules were given to me when I became disabled. All I know is some things are helpful for parking spots and door width.
  10. Hi Frank! You must have seen my cat! He was a trickery bugger for sure, one time he stole my keys and hid them for days! Accidental connection through leakage paths from acid corrosion trails, sheet metal coming in contact with the battery, wrench or wire falls on battery and so on. it would take some really odd combination of events to create a path to ground but odd things do happen! Better to be over safe than playing detective.
  11. If the battery is dead, the chemical reaction inside the battery is no longer active. In the old lead acid types the usual culprit was oxidation on the lead plates and accumulated junk in the base of the battery that created an internal short between the lead plates. As said above, the positive and negative charge in the battery that are normally separated all combine and then there is no free electrons to travel down the wire, no current flows. Think of no more water in the pipe. By charging the battery the positive and negative charges are again separated and are able to again recombine by traveling inside the wire to make current flow. Battery charging is the process of keeping the chemical reaction alive. The act of separating the positive and negative charge in a lithium ion battery has to be well regulated else excessive heat develops and the battery literally burns up.
  12. Catalog pics posted. There are several models including some auto brand specific.
  13. Like I said, Aussie English, 😀. Very wonderful to see and here! We excel in overthinking!
