  1. So I, like Frank DuVal, am mostly a Corvair guy (stop laughing! I DRIVE them and their values are going up!) started almost 40 years ago with a collection of SIX Corvairs, one was $100, four were $75 each, and the last one was $50. Anyway, I "restored" a '65 Monza coupe 110/4 and drove that my last year of high school, all thru college, and my first two years in the WDC area, when the car became a second car and I bought my first NEW car a 1991 Mustang 5.0 stick which I still have! Three of the original six were dismantled and the shells were cut up for scrap due to severe NE PA rust issues
  2. I bought a low mileage '64 sedan out of the Car Corral at Macungie at least 25 years ago for a very reasonable price. It was original paint dark green with an off-white leather interior. I drove the car all the way home to Fairfax Virginia at least five hours, stopping at Firestone where my Brother-in-law worked for FIVE new tires and a front end alignment. The original spare had sat on the shelf in the trunk for so long that the tread had actually fallen to one side! It was here I learned from watching one of the tech's loosen the bolts on the front end how to intertwine two wrenches for
  3. Hi, Pat! Sorry to hear the block is cracked in your Buick... Can it be repaired? Maybe by stitching or welding? Or, would it have to be taken totally apart to do so? Have you advertised for a better engine? There may be one waiting for you out there somewhere! Good luck! Greg in Alexandria VA
  4. So, last time I was at Hershey, well, last time Hershey was held, I made it a point to seek out and meet Matt Harwood! We chatted while standing next to that big blue V16 Marmon! Matt is really a down to earth guy who took the time to talk cars with me for a few minutes. Next time, it will be you Ed! It will be neat to see the White in person! I've been reading all your posts over the last few weeks, or has it been months? Can't wait to hear about your next adventure... All the best and be safe! Greg from Alexandria Virginia. (If you are ever near WDC and crossing the Woodrow Wilson B
  5. My condolences on Dale's passing, Matt. Was he a family man? If so, my condolences to his family too...
  6. One of my all time favorites! What will the final color combination be?
  7. Hi, John/All: The house in York PA I was referring to and you mentioned, "Property taxes aren't low in Pennsylvania, but if you are looking at a property with taxes of $17,000, it must be very large and exceptional," is a very reasonable $255K, 49 E Springettsbury Ave in York. It's the taxes that are $14,771!!!
  8. Open the chokes on each of the carbs and goose the throttle, are you getting two strong streams of fuel in each carb? If so, you do not have a fuel issue... There is a rubber fuel line just inside the DS rear wheel well where the main steel line from the tank attaches to the steel line in the engine compartment. Is that rubber hose in good flexible shape and not cracked or sucking air? This is a good place to install an inline fuel filter. Look at these two things first and report back... Good luck! Greg
  9. I have looked (on-line) at the house above many times... The taxes are $8535! I could place a bet that in 5-10 years, the same house will have a $12k a year tax bill! I would prefer a house in the country on 5-10 WOODED acres! Not spending my retirement MOWING! I could also live in a small historic town, but I need a garage/building/shop to handle 6-8 vehicles... I would consider an in town house if I can walk to a garage close by which would require two purchases, two tax bills, two sets of utilities...
  10. Hi, John/All! At the end of this month I will be exactly 2 years from retiring! I CAN'T WAIT! Currently I am only actually going in to the office one day per week, the balance teleworking... So, I am getting a good taste of what retirement is all about! Last fall I started installing a new roof on my home. It was much more involved than I thought. I added an extra rafter between the original 24" on center rafters on the addition to the house to take the "spring" out of walking on the roof, replaced some sheathing, re-insulated, etc... Currently, I'm about 1/3 way done replacing the fas
  11. Greetings! Brand new Extruded Blade Street Signs are $45-$50, plus shipping. This is an original double-sided Hudson Street Sign! Make your best strong offer! Plus shipping from 22306. Thank you! Greg
  12. Hi, George! So you are selling the Sprint Car, but if you found the original RDWB engine, would you keep it? Good luck on either! Greg
  13. Replace the top, advertise it on every Chevy and/or Impala website you can find, the put it on eBay with no reserve and you will find out how much it is worth!
  14. Just looked on-line for 1 gallon jugs of Evaporust with the following results: Advance Auto $27 Auto Zone $23 (Rust-o-leum Dissolver) Napa - nada...
