  1. hi, its a trim option ,plaid seats and door cards ,highlander badging and a short lived optional Sparton horn that plays The Campbells are coming! Plaid was available in various colours with the red being the most popular .This is now remade by SMS but is roughly $100 a yard ,you will need about 6 yards.And a lot of patience

  3. Me and my 1941 Chrysler Windsor ,picking up the Christmas tree.
  4. I have owned my 48 new yorker in the uk for 11 years ,15mpg sounds about right ,but the loss of power is wrong i think as is the oil consumption ,maybe timing and switching to straight 30 will help ,am very envious of your trip to come!
  5. that's a 41 saratoga ,shame the straight 8 has gone!

  13. If you want fast take off buy a motorcycle,don't buy a car with fluid drive.I have two so I know!
  14. I had the one on the right in my 48 ,i was plagued by low oil pressure readings and i took that thing out about half a dozen times! Only when it was polished to a mirror shine did it work properly ,cleaning it REALLY well was the key.
