  1. Jut for sh*ts and grins try another known good battery. I have had batteries test ok and then fail under a strong load. Also as was suggested make sure that the engine of the car is not locked up for some unknown reason.
  2. My company asked for an appraisal and my cars are insured up to that amount. If I want to increase it I can see if another appraisal will be higher. The part I like is that I can drive the cars as much as I want, anywhere i want as long as every driver in our household has a regular driver for daily use.

  4. Well, I went and inspected a car for another member here about 5 years ago. I am not an appraiser or professional of any kind but do know enough about cars especially the brand I looked at to give an informed opinion. The Member here bought the car(don't know the cost) but told me later that he was very satisfied with it. So depending on your level of trust asking for someone here to look for you might be an idea.
  5. I certainly do. And both are now gone. First new truck from Reed Randle in 1974
  6. I knew there was a change, just didn't remember when it took effect.
  7. Might be related to GVW as at onetime Heavier vehicles had different emission standards than lighter ones. I don't remember when that might have changed if it even has. My 1983 Chev one ton Van did not have a cat and it was considered a Heavy type.

  9. Please be aware that I am not disparaging Mr. Gage or his show. My perspective is the one I know best. His issues with sponsorship I am sure are faced by others in the media business. I only wished to point out that it seems that the show is a long series of commercials mostly from the same clients and even the Tech session on many shows feature his sponsor's products. Not necessarily bad but at times somewhat monotonous. When I do see a tech session I want to see I watch it. Otherwise I skip past it. Reminds me of another show about new cars that has been on for 50 years now. I gave up watching it partly because the Garage guy often seemed to be covering the same areas over and over.
  10. Although I do enjoy his show it really seems to be mostly one big commercial. The advent of DVR and fast forwarding has made the show much more fun for me.
  11. A,though possibly a stretch maybe contact the GM Engineering Dept or Tech center and see if they can give you the numbers. I have contacted manufactures in the past with some success. https://www.gm.com/contact-us.html or maybe in something like this from the US EPA; https://nepis.epa.gov/Exe/ZyNET.exe/9100WD2N.txt?ZyActionD=ZyDocument&Client=EPA&Index=Prior to 1976&Docs=&Query=&Time=&EndTime=&SearchMethod=1&TocRestrict=n&Toc=&TocEntry=&QField=&QFieldYear=&QFieldMonth=&QFieldDay=&UseQField=&IntQFieldOp=0&ExtQFieldOp=0&XmlQuery=&File=D%3A\ZYFILES\INDEX DATA\70THRU75\TXT\00000015\9100WD2N.txt&User=ANONYMOUS&Password=anonymous&SortMethod=h|-&MaximumDocuments=1&FuzzyDegree=0&ImageQuality=r75g8/r75g8/x150y150g16/i425&Display=hpfr&DefSeekPage=x&SearchBack=ZyActionL&Back=ZyActionS&BackDesc=Results page&MaximumPages=1&ZyEntry=1&slide Perhaps the EPA can answer what was required in 1989
  12. There is a "Museum" not to far from me that has a very large percentage of cars that are on consignment. They do have displays that they apparently own and make no bones about what they are. Charge admission and everything. Nice people and always willing to answer questions and be helpful to other owners of collector cars.
  13. Ask here and look for suppliers also for information about your 49. Good luck http://p15-d24.com/ https://www.kanter.com/index.aspx-Good for parts supplies https://www.oldmoparts.com/-good parts supplier https://www.vintagepowerwagons.com/ -Parts and lots of information. They will also answer questions
  14. I so like the line about "Permission" Have read and known about dreamers who when they approach the "Boss" about something they want are suddenly no longer interested in it.
  15. The neighbors son had a v-8 Monza and if I remember right the procedure for removing that last spark plug involved loosening the engine mounts and jacking up the motor to provide access. My understanding is that many owners or mechanics drilled a hole in the inner fender to get to it..
