  1. It's an aviation museum...no Chinese enameled furniture. The employee who toured me through it is a 20-year retired Air Force aircraft mechanic. No degree in antique car restoration, but from what I've seen on this site, there's not much faith in them either without decades of experience. As I said in the original post, there were only 3 cars in the hanger, and by the time I was looking at the Caddy closely, I had 2 employees taking down ropes, opening the hood, doors, etc., and asking me questions about it. They admitted cars weren't their specialty. I offered to help them out with info f
  2. Looking closer, it appears the horn button is cracked. No problem...I still want it.
  3. The dash and steering wheel looked to be in excellent original condition. As you can see in the pictures, it is parked inside a hanger and does get exposed to sunlight through the windows, and the open hanger doors. I should have checked the mileage, although it's obviously been repainted. I'll pass all the info on to them. It's a very beautiful car, and the wide whites really set it off. I already told them if the museum owner decides to downsize again (like he did a few years ago,) and the car's on the chopping block, to let me know. Don't know how I'd pay for it...maybe sell a kidney
  4. I will post the results here when they check it out...which they said they would.
  5. Somehow my 1938 Caddy thread posted twice. Moderators, could you please delete this one? Thanks. George
  6. Okay guys/gals, help me out here. Today I stopped in at the Fantasy of Flight aviation museum on I-4 between Tampa & Orlando. They've got 3 cars on display with the aircraft, including a 31 Model A roadster, a 32 Chevy coupe, and what they called a 1936 Cadillac. Not being 100% sure myself, I asked if they were sure. They said they were. I took the attached pictures to double check, and lo and behold, it's a 1938. It looks completely original, missing the air cleaner. Chrome looks in extremely nice shape. No damage that I could see other than a million tiny bubbles in the paint. W
  7. I looked 'Rats Nest' up in the dictionary, and this picture was there.
  8. In the early 1960s, I can remember several 57 & 58 Chevy sport coupe and convertible daily drivers running around upstate NY with wide whites, skirts, dual rear mounts, and continental kits. They're about the only cars that look good dolled up like that. On most other cars, I agree with Victoria Lynn....they look like a back porch. Or worse yet, a hemorrhoid.
  9. TOOLS AND HOW TO USE THEM SKILLSAW: A portable cutting tool used to make boards too short. BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs. WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerpr
