  1. some Darrin parts can be very expensive, especially if you buy them from some guy on eBay, namesake "jake", ironically same root name as your email address..what a strange coincidence!!!
  2. "cost of parts"..what do you expect to replace as you drive it down the road?
  3. I do not understand your "not cheap to own"..in the past 13 years and 15, 000 miles, a few oil changes do not cost that much!!...I drive mine all the time, including on THE TAIL OF THE DRAGON
  4. grille=Darrin's artistic image of a heart--common in his designs
  5. that "kiss-pucker" grille is merely one of Darrin's design signatures as any artist frequently puts in their work.. Dutch incorporates an "image" of a heart in his designs, e.g., windshield of full size Kaisers. rear window of the Henry J, grille and turn signal lights on the Kaiser Darrin. I'll excuse your naivety.
  6. this is correct New Goodmark Windshield Washer Bag Mounting Bracket Fits Mustang GMK3020242643 | eBay

  8. at 2009 MEADOWBROOK CONCOURS d' ELEGANCE
  9. barn to Concours in 5years
  10. I have been to M1 several times--more supercars than Kaiser Darrins, but everything with wheels is there
  11. I totally agree with the rural life. 30 years ago, I moved on 8 acres, 15 minutes out of town, dirt road, now paved. Definitely not for everyone. Well water, septic field, gotta get 8N tractor, chainsaws, learn fence work. But on the plus side, every tree is an urinal and able to build my dream garage and fill it with "stuff". On the other hand, live in a tent and get the ultimate garage...M1 Concourse.
  12. what do you mean by mojo? not directing traffic, giving an additional contact means
  13. from my drag racing days in the 60's an original by "Mouse", back when he ran around with "Big Daddy Roth", before he became the "Rat Fink"
  14. please help me identify this rim and tire tire size is 4.50x21 thanks
  15. Those stingers were talked about during my visit, especially about out-running the cops.
  16. Frank Yenko opened his second dealership in Canonsburg in 1949
  17. Help me identify usage for this plate--marked with #38 used on various wire wheel type hubcaps 2 3/4" offset/height thanks in advance
  18. haven't been here in a long time, but... waiting for spring--still had frost last nite projects galore!!
  19. I was there with my Kaiser Darrin a few years ago. It was a high honor to be invited and a great experience to be in the presence of other great cars. It is too bad that this show is on one of the 2 day Ford Motor Muster in Dearborn. Anybody within a reasonable drive of the Detroit area that weekend can enjoy 2 great car shows!!
  20. both interior and roof vinyl material is available from KAISER FRAZER OWNER'S CLUB INTERNATIONAL you do not need to be a member to order, but you will pay an additional 15% goto kfclub.com and skip to Manufacturing Fund paint code is PPG DDL-81606, Acrylic Lacquer
  21. I have a few simple rules to determine which shows, not cruises, to go to: (my cruise choice depends on what I want to eat that nite) no drive longer than an hour--hour to...hour fro and 6+ hours in the field, makes for a long day for a retired old guy no big paved parking lots--too hot in the sun prefer small town with shade available, local park, or golf course venue...small towns often have local hot spots for food and drink rather than eating out of a cooler usually don't go to the same show 2 years in a row, especially if I won a trophy..exception once when I took Best in Show and they put my car on the poster for the next year--had to show up! I try to go to as many different shows as possible--having a rare eye catching car, KAISER DARRIN, I like to introduce the car and KAISER FRAZER to as many new people as possible--plight of the Independents..not enough exposure to the public much unlike Nick8086, my prep for a show is 20 minutes--check tire pressure, oil, gas and get the bugs off of the front end and windshield from the run the nite before my car is not a trailer queen--I drive it--even to the MEADOWBROOK CONCOURS d'ELEGANCE...drove it there, got my blue ribbon, and drove it home!! ...I have run out of wall space...
  22. MAY I SUGGEST THAT YOU CORRECT YOUR POSTING BECAUSE THE MOLDS FOR THESE PARTS ARE SITTING IN MY SHOP. I JUST LOOKED INCASE YOU SNUCK INTO MY SHOP WHILE I WAS SLEEPING.
