  1. If one enjoys ’20’s and ’30’s jazz and swing, this is a goodie. Very few commercials. Sometimes music spans all the way from the teens to the early ’40’s but mostly ’20’s and early ’30’s. https://tunein.com/radio/Jazz-20s--Swinging-30s-s218840/
  2. Plenty of Model T’s for sale here. https://www.mtfca.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=4
  3. Corn Head Grease NLGI grade No. 0 looks like just the ticket for your u-joint lube. I see it is formulated not to leak during idle periods. From the Nye lubricants page. “NLGI grades 000 to 0. Grease within this NLGI range to continuously replenish the lubricant in the contact zone."
  4. Terry, that is certainly an interesting looking u-joint and gimbal assembly. Here is a link to NYE lubricants that gives a pretty good explanation with regards to grease consistency. https://www.nyelubricants.com/need-to-know-grease-consistency
  5. I had a 1929 Model A Tudor sedan when I was in H.S. circa 1970. At that time, my only sources for Model A parts were the few local Model A guys with extra parts they were willing to sell or from the “Model A section" of J.C. Whitney and Warshawsky catalogs. Whitney and Warshawsky parts were a little “iffy” some better quality others not so much. I did enjoy browsing those sections of the catalogs back then. Earlier this year I purchased a 1930 Sport Coupe and am astounded at the number of parts available from the vendors today. The quality of the parts purchased so far have been g
  6. Pretty exciting to see you found your old ’30 Buick from the ’70’s. Too bad about the as found condition. Sad to see. Mother nature is most unkind to old cars left outdoors. Even in drier climates it seems nothing deteriorates faster than a car left unattended outdoors.
  7. Using the CPI inflation calculator lists the above Model A Ford items in 46 woodies post. Model A horn at $.90 = to $16.38 "in today’s dollars.” Actual cost to buy reproduction. $279. (Snyder’s) Spindle bolt sets $1.05 = to $19.11 “in today’s dollars." Actual cost to buy reproduction. $82. (Snyder’s) 3X spark plugs at $.38 = to $6.92 “in today’s dollars” Actual cost to buy reproduction. $37. (Snyder’s) Interesting to note that the 3X spark plugs are nearly 100 times the 1932 cost of $.38. Somewhere there is huge disconnect in the actual cost to purcha
  8. I have been following this thread and applaud Hugh for addressing a safety feature we have all become accustomed to in our modern vehicles. For me, until the late ’70’s when seat belt safety campaigns were being promoted by signage on the highways, I did not wear seat belts even if they were present in the vehicle. Can anyone provide a documented case where the body has separated from the frame?
  9. The downside of wind and solar is is the sun doesn’t shine all the time and the wind doesn’t blow all the time. There will still be a need for conventional power generation sources. Until there is adequate capacity and storage capabilities for renewables, thermal and hydroelectric sources will be around for awhile. Another thing I find troublesome about wind and solar is the once pristine lands that are now cluttered with these eyesores. A prime example is the wind farm recently constructed in a remote valley next to Great Basin National Park in Nevada. One more thing
  10. I run a Model A Air Maze on my 1926 Model T and do just as Captain Harley does. I spray a light mist of K&N oil on it after cleaning. When applying the K&N oil, I wipe off the excess then lightly blow with compressed air. If one holds the filter up to the light, you will see the oil does not completely block off the screen grids. I have not noticed any loss in performance. At the first cleaning, I found a fair amount of dirt/dust was trapped and prevented from entering the engine. I do occasionally travel on dirt roads. Captain Harley, What are the advantages of running th
  11. It does appear to be a Dodge Brothers four. Compare to this one seen at the Piquette. Not sure of the year. Early 1920’s?
  12. Matt, What you are seeing and reading about is the mainsprings power reserve indicator. A common complication often seen on high end mechanical watches. There are no batteries. Is powered by twin mainsprings. One of which can be seen directly below the power reserve “fuel reserve” indicator.
  13. Welcome Jaybokay, Nice looking ’62 GT Hawk and great story. I owned several Studebakers back in the day including 2 Silver Hawks. Liked the refined looks of the GT Hawks. You are right about the Studebaker 289 cu. in. V8 being a robust and very reliable engine.
