  1. It was really nice all last week and was able to drive a convertible to work everyday. Cold and cloudy this weekend and predicting 1.5" snow for Monday night...
  2. Looks like a Lotus Europa to me. One of my favorite cars, but I can't fit inside one. Heck, at 6' 5" I barely fit in my '54 Roadie (top down helps though)! Scott
  3. Black walls in front, whitewalls in back, for when you can't decide! 😄
  4. My 54 Buick and 58 Cadillac convertibles are missing the filler piece that goes in the top of the piston covers. I’ve attached a picture of the one in my Chevelle for reference (red). Does anyone know of a source for these, or what the correct name for them is so I can search for them? Thanks Scott
  5. Made it up to and back from the BCA meet in Denver on Sat. Finished up the torque ball seal et al. about 11pm the night before. Met Father Buick and several others while wandering the show and swap meet. Stopped at the end of the driveway an took this. Scott
  6. This is one of many issues I have to deal with too... I plan on registering and coming up maybe Friday evening and definitely Saturday. Hopefully I'll be driving the '54, but my daily driver 63 Skylark will be there if not. I'll be parking out with the other riff-raff in the parking lot. For those looking to imbibe there are many breweries and distilleries close by. Coors tour is good, but Boulder is a ways away. Here are a couple of helpful websites with interactive maps: Colorado Brewery list Drinker's Guide to Colorado There are at least half a dozen close by the Hotel. If you are looking to partake of other things recently legalized in Colorado, you are on your own. ? Scott
  7. Took the Roadmaster to the local C&C yesterday and parked next to a wonderful all original 51 Roadmaster. I had seen the car at other local shows but never got a chance to talk to the owner. It was originally an east coast car owned by a priest. On the way home I managed to run out of gas about 10 minutes from home. Still looks pretty good sitting on the side of the road though. Running out of gas caused it to vapor lock in the record heat we're having, 91 degrees yesterday, 20 above normal. Hope it cools off for the nationals in a couple of weeks. Scott
  8. I've got a set of 4. One center is loose. None of them is perfect, as you can see. As Woody Michel says, they are kind of thin and would straighten out with some light hammer and dolly work. Since they won't fit the 13" wheels on my '63, I'd like to get them off the shelf. How about $100, plus shipping, or make me an offer. Thanks Scott
  9. Last I read the only one of these cars that had been found was Corvette: https://www.solidaxlecorvettemi.com/?lightbox=imagezy7 From what I remember it had been repainted and sold on after the show, but the original paint was found during restoration and it was then restored as it appeared for the show.

  10. Lots of brew pubs, microbreweries, tap rooms, etc. around. It is Colorado after all. Old Loveland pass is a nice drive, but I'm more used to doing it in a TR-3 rather than a 50's Buick. Disc brake probably make a big difference. For those into 'train spotting' type actives, you can sit at the top of the pass with a hazardous materials book and look up all the numbers on the sides of the semis, since hazmat is not allowed through the tunnels on I-70! I am going to try and make the Nationals if my employment situation allows, but I'll be day tripping it. The 50 miles each way is cheaper on gas than a hotel room. Scott
  11. Rockauto lists the CH106pl for 11.59 each. Their application is shown as mid-50's GM, I've gotten these for my 54 Buicks and 58 Cadillacs.. They also show the ACDELCO PF122 for 6.24, and the WIX 51121 for 8.29. Not sure why I got the Fram when the Delco was available. Looks like I need to add some to my next order. Scott
  12. John, You are correct. 63 only. Perhaps coupe or Skylark only. If my pictures were cooperating I would upload a picture of them on my 63 Skylark coupe. Scott
  13. Took the Roadmaster out to the last big cars and coffee of the season. Temps in the 70s today and tomorrow, first snow storm of the season on Monday. Had the Eldorado out too, just to enjoy the weather. Scott
