  1. Same as the 1960 Pontiac Berkshire Green. GM used the same green for a lot of the lines with different names.
  2. I’m a bit strange in that I actually listen to the old radio shows on XM. Channel 148. I do listen to music (20’s-early 90’s) but mostly the radio shows. Fibber McGee & Molly, Suspense, Yours Truly Johnny Dollar, etc.
  3. Working on a few Ford flathead fuel pumps I purchased from a fellow member. 4 were used pumps and one was a partial NOS new pump. I cleaned the glass bowls up, 3 OEM AC glass and one that I presume to be aftermarket. Original AC bowl Aftermarket
  4. Done. I should have done more research first, that what I get for jumping the gun. Another lesson learned, but zero cost this time. That’s rare.
  5. Isn't the Brooks pretty rare too?
  6. Thanks for the photo! I divested myself of all social media except LinkedIn, and that's about to go as well. I got to the point where I opened up Facebook and after 10 minutes, I was checking the JPL Near Earth Object website to see if there was any hope that an asteroid was on its way to produce an extinction-level event.
  7. They weren't advertised as Champion, they were advertised as Autolite. Not sure how I left the impression that they were. My concerns were that they were selling them at a cheap price compared to the others on eBay and the order was cancelled. It was stated there were issues with the brass nut on top on the Autolite. I will check with Bratton's for parts certainly. I just tend to wander through eBay like a kid in the hobby store.
  8. Thank you for the review! I have been leaning towards this one a bit because of the significantly reduced noise level but always floated back to the Quincy for the cost. I see it has come down $100 from the original $1999 when it came out.
  9. Yep, the Pontiac will never leave, it’s an heirloom. I’m planning on two Model A’s, one I can daily drive and one I can do a proper restoration. I think there is a Model A club in Montgomery or Birmingham, I’m in Auburn, AL.
  10. Thanks for the info! I’m just getting into the Model A scene, I haven’t bought one yet but I do my best to know what I need to know before I dive in. They were advertised as Autolite, so no problems there. I’ve already received all of the judging standards books and info and joined MAFCA and have their info. I just have to complete my 57 Chevy and sell it so I have the cash/space to get a Model A. Since the Champion are better /more accurate, I will wait to find some of those.
  11. Ok, I’m wondering if he just realized he sold them to me for a really cheap price and gave me an excuse to cancel the sale. They are running ~$30 each on eBay and I bought these for $37.95 for 4 plus shipping/tax put them at just under $50 for all 4.
  12. That was some insane animation! It didn’t get much better until the 1980’s, maybe even later.
  13. That’s the other compressor I’ve been looking at, it’s just double the price of the Quincy.
  14. This was the photo associated with the initial eBay ad that I purchased. I’m assuming these are Champion plugs just reboxed, correct? Thanks for the info on the plugs! I am beginning the Model A path soon.
