  1. I was thinking the other day(I know, dangerous) and realized as I was driving my Chevy Traverse down the road that I really, for the first time I can remember, did not feel any attachment to the car at all. It was like I was driving the refrigerator down the road. Ever since I began driving about 100 years ago I always felt, even on cars I did’t particularly care for, a sense of oh, I don’t know, oneness with the car. I always enjoyed driving darn near anything and still enjoy the heck out of the old Plymouths. But this one and to a lessor extent my wife’s Kia Soul, not so much. Anyone el
  2. My compressor just sits on the concrete. Sometimes I have to rotate it a little but not enough to be bothered by it.
  3. Thank you. I will give them a call. As a side note my first atr compressor was a 20 gallon Craftsman oilless I bought in 1993. I used it for everything up to and including sanding down cars for paint. It drew so much current I could not have the lights on in my 20 amp circuit garage. Even then on a hot day the breaker would pop. It finally died in 2010 and I had the garage rewired for 40 amps and 220. Of course now I don’t use it nearly as much as I used the old Craftsman.
  4. Yes, regular I believe dual piston. There was a place not too far from me but they went out of business years ago. Another one I found either went under or moved. With todays throw it away culture I expect finding someone to repair it will take some time. Luckily at this time of year all I do is fill tires and have a small one for that.
  5. I bought a Sanborn in 2012 and used it intermittently since. Unfortunately despite the type of usage the 220 volt motor has failed. Sanborn wants as much for a new motor I paid for the whole compressor. Now I am looking to see if anyone still repairs these type of motors. I wouldn’t recommend a Sanborn at least of the type I bought. 60 gallon tank, 220 volts.
  6. Kind of posting this for fun. Haven't seen one in years and years. Not sure I would claim it if it was mine but it's not. And I have no idea why the right side is on blocks. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/sunbeam/imp/2440987.html
  7. Not sure if this is the correct place so if not apologies in advance and please move if needed. Just saw this on the POC Facebook page and thought if might be of interest to someone here. https://www.dodgegarage.com/news/article/gallery/2021/01/mo-par-city-is-closing-its-doors-after-50-years.html
  8. Fairly nice looking car. 318? Could use a few more pics. Still... Again, not mine and have no vested or any other interest in it's sale. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/dodge/dart/2441252.html
  9. Tripped across this while perusing Hemmings. Seems nice but has a few minor issues. Not mine, nor do I have any interest in it. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/desoto/deluxe/2438044.html

Take a lot longer. I know this cause I do not have one or access to one. Still got
  11. As suggested on your other post go to p15/d24 .com and post there. That site is for 40’s to late 50’s Mopars. Much information there.
  12. Of course what is the likelihood of the original owner in 1968 ever changing his own tire? And yes it is a great looking car.

  14. No Bernie, say it isn't so. Not Jingles and Floyd. They would never lie. https://midnitereviews.com/2017/11/twilight-zone-episode-95-hocus-pocus-frisby/
  15. You can delete the post and redo it in tech
  16. To be worse than us will require a lot of extra effort.
  17. I have never taken anything to a chain store or a dealer without getting a list of items that must be repaired, replaced, or renewed usually at great cost. I am amazed that I am not dead considering all the times I did not replace rotors,calipers, brake lines etc. when I have done work at home. I expect it is a combination of factors causing this, extra profit of course, and reduced liability in case something breaks shortly after having work done somewhere and having someone scream “They should have found that” and then sue the pants off of the shop.
  18. The thing about “Lifetime” anything is it is open to interpretation. Who’s lifetime? Mine, theirs, the car’s. You never know till you need it. Then the fun starts.
  19. Something to be said about blocking the sunlight I suppose. I know that the tires on my cars that sit mostly in my garage don’t seem to experience anywhere near as much dry rot as the ones that sit outside all the time
  20. Except your metal car sits on nonconductive rubber tires
  21. Although not what most would consider a real vintage car I did drive my 1980 Plymouth Volare home from a Plymouth Club National meet in what was described a hundred year’s rain in 2009. So bad high speed on the wipers did not have a chance. I got off the expressway and going through some of the small towns I could see water shooting up out of the storm drains and manhole covers.
  22. I paid $3000 for my first new vehicle in 1974. Had it a year and the pressures of a growing family made the $100 per month payment unsustainable. Had to sell it for what I owed on it. Now $100 is a couple family trips to Culver’s or a big Pizza night. Who’d a thunk? I used to think if I could just make $5.00 per hour I would be set. Coworkers who did had houses, nice cars and families.
  23. I started looking there just to see and found out it is really nice. Simple and useful at the same time.
