  1. Larry last year while towing to and from the Ocala meet I exploded 5 tires. 4 of which were 4 years old and had proper pressure according to my tire monitoring system. Up to that time I carried two spares for your reasoning. Now carrying 3 spares i was impressed with my Dewalt gun as it changed them all on one battery. Robert
  2. Pete, jus’ clearing the air. The 142 late 61 Chevrolet optional 409 motors were available for all full sized sedans and not exclusive to the part year 453 Built Super Sport cars. I own a real 61 Super Sport coupe and yes one of the 142 1961 only 409’s Robert
  3. Wow I've been lurking watching this one and have only a couple things to add in my experience with similiar cars. 1. I have carried a battery operated impact gun for years. At last years Ocala meet I blew 5 tires on that round trip towing out of Maryland. Carrying only 3 spares I had to overnight until a tire store opened! The impact gun did all 5 as quickly as a NASCAR pit stop along side I-95. 2. ATC designed the escape door to match the car door opening while in the trailer at the sweet spot. I just fully open the door and step out. My trailer looks funny as the escape
  4. The Granite Digital as well as CTEK and Schumacher maintainers perform multi step functions and discriminate between battery types. A couple or so years ago GEL Battery Tenders had different units for lead acid and gel and were distinguished by different part numbers. I have long forgotten which model senses GEL vs lead acid. I suspect they have updated the software to sense GEL from other batteries Robert
  5. I have several Granite “tenders” that I use for Antique Battery gel batteries and new stuff AGM. Although a bit less than 10 amps I am not seeing deteriorating with AGM batteries. I wasn’t using it on my truck AGM batteries and lost two because with this virus just short uptown post office and market trips this winter killed them. I now am using one on them weekly i also am hearing good comments from folks on another forum of Ctek charger/maintainers robert
  6. I have a little private sticker on mine but still get stopped. Originally I did it to keep from Maryland stops but I soon found out that means nothing. The only things looked at is the GVW ratings on the trailer and the Drivers truck door ratings! Robert
  7. Ed, Don’t you have a CDL license? I’ve had the pad of paper adding up the load carrying tires rating and comparing that to the GVW of the ATC trailer game! Yup, I passed that one also. Robert
  8. those graphics are not commercial I agree. Hey goo be gone Not an option Robert
  9. that has all of the signs of a Maryland stop. Actually I sorta agree with him that advertising on our trailers does put you into DOT territory oh if you do travel Maryland read the scale stops signs carefully as all of us car haulers must stop for inspection robert
  10. Ed have you noticed Maryland scales signs. Yep you are required to get checked at a Maryland scale with your rig! As am I. But I always get Greenlighted on I-95 and I-70/68 but get really the business at a scale on the shore. I could write a book about my Maryland scale problems Robert
  11. I took this at the 1965 Super Stock Nationals at York PA Robert
  12. gee thanks I guess. Yes this was the day after at the junk yard in Raleigh NC. Unfortunately back in those days these Nova SS cars were just transportation. The SS was replaced by a Gran Torino GT Robert
  13. I remember a Car and Driver magazine test in the 60’s but have forgotten the specifics but I do remember the Mercury Cougar test car had been massaged by Bud Moore and the Pontiac car used had been delivered by Royal Pontiac. Those were the good days Robert
  14. yep several a 1970 SS 454 Monte Carlo, a 1969 Torino 428 Cobra Jet, and a Nova SS come to mind. I'd have done better in those days if I knew I would have made it this long Robert
