  2. Thanks John, I guess I missed the part about the engine getting changed in the '70s. Feel free to attach any label you choose: treasure, restomod, your call. Like I said earlier, it's only my opinion that this car is something special, if you feel otherwise you're welcome to do so.
  3. Just last week while I was at my local parts store to pick up a couple of brass fittings for the vacuum advance pipe on my '40 Lasalle there was another fellow in the store trying to find some parts for a 1954 Cadillac 331 engine. As usual, the guy behind the counter was asking him for the model of the car he was working on so he could go through the menu in his software.

  8. Good Catch, Broker-len. This particular scam has been around for a while now. Sometimes it's groceries, sometimes it's a FedEx package. Your friend's email was found somewhere and is being spoofed by the bad guys. This can happen when folks have their email addresses posted on a website for the whole world to see. Thanks for the warning. Wes in VT

  13. There's a discussion about this same website on HAMB. https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/car-sales-scams.740752/ General consensus is the site is a scam. As someone already said, nice work if you can get it. Wes in VT
