  1. It's all yours, Mike. Just send me a private message with your mailing address.
  2. A great shot of the Cliff House in San Francisco! Note the black Caddy limo picking up or dropping off some bigwig.
  3. I think that's what you just said! 😁 As you can tell from my earlier post, I'm not surprised.
  4. '39-'40 Horn Center Clear Lens Bob's Automobilia sent me a very wrong part this week -- I had ordered a lower radiator hose for my '41, and they sent me this little plastic lens that apparently fits in the center of a '39 or '40 horn button. As I said, very wrong! 😁 I called and they said they would send me the hose, and when I offered to return the lens, they said don't bother. So I will happily mail this item at no charge to any '39 or '40 owners out there who want it.
  5. In Hemmings -- looks like a lot of car for the price:
  6. Wow, how could so many cars be assembled with nary a Buick in sight! I'm not sure my eyes are any younger than yours, but I see a few non-Ford products (several Oldsmobiles, a few Chevys, assorted MoPars, a Hudson), but no Buicks! Is this photo from the parking lot of a Ford plant?
  7. I don't want to derail your thread -- although you seem to be doing it by yourself without any help from me! <grin> I understand completely what you're saying about the pros and cons of glow power versus electrics. I started with electrics and have never flown any gas or glow planes, so I probably have a bias in that direction. But I hate forums where people go on for pages arguing about which is better. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you're having fun, that's the whole idea. Another reason I'm probably happier with electrics is that I'm really not a builder -- I did it when I had to back in the days when ARF's were terrible -- but nowadays with CAD laser cut (and even foamie) ARF's that fly great and require very little assembly, I'm a very happy camper. I have tremendous admiration for people like you who are true craftsmen and spend hours on their planes and then have the guts to go out and fly them! Thanks for posting more pics of the Dauntless -- it's very impressive.
  8. Matt, I am rarely called upon to make corrections to your very knowledgeable posts. However, it was not Attorney General Edwin Meese who made that comment, but Justice Potter Stewart of the United States Supreme Court. Here's the full quote: I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description [hard-core pornography]; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that. From his concurring opinion in Jacobellis v. Ohio, 378 U.S. 184 (1964). 😄
  9. Your Dauntless is beautiful! This is probably a terrible thing for you to hear, but have you considered electric power for your RC planes? Brushless motors and Lithium Polymer batteries have transformed the hobby -- you can build lighter and end up with much lower wing loading. And you don't have to wipe your model down after flying. Just a thought. I have been enjoying this thread on your beautiful Olds, and wish you the best of luck. Neil
  10. GM styling hit it out of the park all across the board in '61. This looks like a winner in every category. Good luck with the sale, Matt!
  11. I don't know whether to laugh or cry! Is that a boat tail, do you think? I was kind of with him until I saw the "side mount."
  12. Yikes! That sounds like a huge drag. Talk about "thrown wrenches!" I don't have a full history on my car, but I know a lot of work was done on it in the 80's or 90's, and I'm pretty sure the water pump has been off. We shall see.
  13. Okay, thanks everyone for the help. I will consult with my "assistant" 😉 Mr. Micheletti, and we will figure out which way we want to go. I like the way you summed it up, Matt!
  14. Thanks, Matt. I will definitely keep you posted. That's interesting about that bolt that goes through the water jacket because that seems to be the general area where my pump is leaking. I can't tell until I get in there, but I have a slow leak somewhere at the bottom of the pump. I figured that the gasket may have failed there, but it may be that it's leaking from that bolt hole. Having reviewed Dave's recommended procedure and having taken a look at the clearance between the fan and the radiator (barely an inch, I would say), I now want to ask the opposite question: Is it possibly easier on the '41 just to take the radiator out? Once the hood is removed, it looks like it's actually pretty simple -- just unbolt it and pull it straight up. I did it on my '48 Chrysler and it was very easy. Getting it out of the way sure would make it easier to tackle the pump removal.
