  1. Too bad you weren't there. I wouldn't have minded meeting you and seeing your beautiful car. As it was, there was only one Zephyr this year, a nice gentleman from Belleville MI who I have had an opportunity to speak with in the past who has been there the last three years. Unfortunately, we didn't cross paths this year. I think the rainy weather may have deterred some Zephyrists. It was overly warm last year and I think two showed up. The year before was nice - 3 Zephyrs including a very fine looking red '37 (I think). I was hoping to take my car this year but she's not road ready yet. Next year though...
  2. I have to figure out how to resize the photos. My phone takes hi-rez pics so I had to import the above pic from FB. For a child of the seventies, I am not as tech-savvy as I would like to be.
  3. As some of you are aware, the Henry Ford/Greenfield Village hosts a great classic car event each year on Father's Day weekend. Anyone coming up for the weekend?
  4. Still needs a lot of work. Pretty gritty under the hood. Needs to be re-upholstered and missing some knobs. Are you sure you wanna see?
  5. After three seemingly long and challenging years, I was finally able to bring my grandfather's Zephyr home. My able-bodied mechanic and I have traveled back and forth to my place of business where I have been fortunate enough to be able to store and to work on my car about 25 miles from my house. By another stroke of good luck, my mechanic lives relatively close to me in case the old girl needs some extra TLC. The mechanics of the vehicle are well in hand. Now on to the cosmetics. The body and the interior need quite a bit of work. The road ahead is still long but the way is clear. It was an overwhelmingly euphoric moment to back my 1938 Lincoln Zephyr in to my own garage and it is not one that I am likely to forget. I cannot help but feel a deep debt of gratitude to my humble mechanic for his perseverance and his exceptional skill. I have learned quite a bit from him. Thank you, John Morgan for making this dream of mine, this homecoming possible.
  6. Just curious-does the 41 have a reservoir? I ran into this while finally getting to drive my 38. There is no reservoir so the overflow comes out a tube that runs down the side of the radiator.
  7. Are you working on both cars? What's your timeline for completion?
  8. My son got to go for a "test drive" finally.
  9. Already looking ahead to the next project?
  10. I was very happy to receive my rebuilt water pumps in about a week's time. Now, to install them and see how they work!
  11. Just pulled it put again. I have a drawing of the gear camshaft. It was in a manila envelope that was passed down to me postmarked 1969. There is a lot of discoloration. I don't think it would scan well, however. Sorry.

  13. I have a factory blueprint of at least part of the engine. Not sure how well it would show up in a picture.
