  1. I am assuming your car has been running fine with the air cleaner. Why remove it? Are you fouling plugs? Running a little rich is not going to hurt anything like running lean could. If it ain't broke don't fix based on someone's opinion. The mesh air cleaners are not seriously restricting air flow either. I have one on mine.
  2. Suck, They wont even know what to do with the car. Hope you eventually get it back. Rare cars, I have a 1919 Chandler.
  3. May not count as a wreck but first accident was driving an Olds Delta 88 into the river in front of two police cars. I was in a full leg cast and on crutches. Water ruined the cast. Was not totally sober at the time. My girlfriend made it to the police first as she wasn't hindered by a leg cast. I don't know what she may have told them but I avoided arrest somehow. In mere moments the car was completely flooded by a passing barge entering the locks. Maybe they thought that was enough punishment.
  4. Some of those photos are from Old Car City in White Georgia. Cool place to visit but 90% or more of the cars are beyond repair and not for sale.
  5. Yes welders, air compressors-you name it as some of the serious off roaders have everything they need for all kinds of repairs
  6. Beautiful car I bet it is fun to drive.
  7. Man I used to LOVE building models as a kid. Now my hands or eyesight would never cooperate, Can't even set points anymore without a magnifying glass.
  8. Read the subject line and figured the post would be about engine oil. THAT ALWAYS STARTS HEATED DEBATES
  9. After realizing how bad he'd been screwed he's probably in jail for threatening the shop owner. Of course we didn't see the car before but $51K just to get to that point?
  10. I did my wood wheels which were also yellow a year or so ago. I used citrus strip, applied liberally and then wrapped each wheel with saran wrap and left it do it trick for a day. Worked pretty good, buy by no means removed everything. It seems there was a red primer underneath the paint and while some of it came up not all did. Then I refinished with multiple coats of spar varnish using steel wool between coats. There is no getting around its a lot of work to strip wood wheels to bare wood.
  11. Don't know if in your budget but there are a few places throughout the country where you could rent this car. Maybe make a long weekend to fly somewhere, rent the car for a weekend, and fly back home. Good luck, and I hope you can make it work out. Eric
  12. Beautiful car that's for sure.
  13. Looking good. These old motors are works of art in my opinion.
