  1. Forgive me, but what is a "1950 b2 wheel stud?"
  2. Remember that greener grass on the other side? Probably because of the lack of oil spills...
  3. Very sorry to hear. This should not be part of the struggle of restoring a car! Heal yourself first and we'll await your return with wishes and prayers.
  4. Great to hear from you again. I've always loved this car and the stories you have shared.
  5. Fantastic! Congratulations! We're all looking forward to the continued progress. Thank you for sharing your adventure!
  6. I would guess that top wrench especially could really fly if it slipped off!
  7. State Route 23 in my area is horrible between Columbus, Ohio and Delaware, Ohio. I followed a car down it the other day whose license plate read: IH8 RT23.
  8. I hate it when I get behind the manure spreaders around here.
  9. Looks like a Disney sequal to "Cars" based on "Romeo and Juliette."
  10. I was let down by the self-help book "Double your IQ or no money back."* But seriously, I have purchased a book or two that ended up only being good for levelling tables. *Tip of the hat to Gary Larson.
  11. Remember, it gets confusing when multiple parts with pictures are included in a single thread. Much easier to follow if broken into separate threads per forum suggestion.
  12. As with the replies you received about going from 6V to 12V, there really isn't any need to change the brakes either. They were engineered for this car and work great. I owned a 1950 Chrysler and a 1951 DeSoto and never had a bit of trouble or anxiety with the brakes. Save your money for that perfect paint job or interior!
  13. My driver's ed class was in a Cutlass Supreme (mid '70s) and I took my test in my 1956 Olds 88. I don't think the patrolman paid any attention to my driving as he was busy looking around the car.
  14. Neat car, but "as vintage as possible" with the projected new driveline? Love watching projects unfold.
  15. It seems like one of those get-you-home donut spares. Not for highway speeds...
