  1. I’ll look forward to your metric comments Mike. My take from a Canadian perspective is that complete conversion is neither desirable or possible. Metric will be used where it works better but should not be forced. Carry on bravely Joe. Cheers Ed
  2. Looks good Steve. I’m glad you’ve got the chrome valve covers. I think mine had a chrome air cleaner cover too.
  3. I really enjoy reading your narrative about the science and art of machining JV. I hope it will be preserved as a guidebook on how machining problems should be addressed. Without any real evidence I have a feeling that we have lost so much in the way of standards and benchmarks with the forced imposition of the metric. Your thread is a beacon for a better way.
  4. While posting I found the notifications button.
  5. Hi guys. Happy July 4 to my American friends. Not to make excuses for a long absence but I don’t seem to be getting notifications of replies to this thread. Thanks for a nice reply Ben P. I did inquire about an E-35 in Colorado a few weeks ago but at the time international road travel wasn’t allowed and it since has been sold to California. I never did hear from Buick18. So still looking. Really enjoy these forums. Cheers Ed C.
  6. Chris that would be an understatement. In my defence at age 6 I learned to drive in ‘51 International L-120 3/4 ton. 4 speed no synchro. If you didn’t double clutch you didn’t shift. There wasn’t any “sport” mode on that truck. I guess I got a little carried away when I graduated to vehicles that you could have fun with.
  7. Somehow I missed the replies to this thread. I’m still interested in purchasing a car buick18.
  8. I’m looking for a Buick touring car 1918 or earlier. Prefer a running car. No major projects. Thanks Ed.
  9. In search of a Buick touring car 1918 or earlier. Either restored or a survivor that is running or could run. 4 cyl okay. Thanks Ed
  10. Steve Pollard. I’d be a little older than you. My burnouts were with Dad’s ‘54 Ford V-8 around 1960. One day he said the rear end is making some noise. Whoops. A while later we had a new ‘62 Chev. Pertaining to this thread in 1975 I bought a ‘69 Impala SS 427 with a poor engine. I got the engine rebuilt at the local Chev-Olds dealer and they did it right. The rest of the car was nothing special but did that 427 like to let it out. I don’t think it even had a tach but if you kept your foot in it the shift to high was at 105 mph. Quite a car. Sadly I rolled it and parted it out.
  11. The car is in Alberta, Canada. We’re 3 hours from US border. I’m looking for $2000 US.
  12. A couple more pictures. I believe that the drive train and running gear are series 9 Franklin. Body and frame might be Essex.
