  1. OK back on topic. I'm wondering if people have seen a Round Door Rolls Royce, very rare.
  2. Just imagine how many hours went into that interior. There is this sort of joke about Rolls Royce. An interviewer was asking the head of production how fast the line moves at Rolls Royce, saying that at Ford the line moves so that a car is made once a minute. The Rolls head of production said, Let's see, I think the line moved last Thursday.
  3. Here is from a Rolls Royce tour through England. They don't make them like they used to.
  4. Mark Wetherbee, I thought I would clear up your photo a bit. I could not get it much better than that.
  5. This pretty well covers this car. I will turn to another car for your entertainment. Stay tuned to this channel for more exciting episodes of Ice Road Trucker, wait that's not right, Gas monkey Garage, no that's not it, Michael-Restomod's Frugal Repairs. To finish this car, some paint. Some house carpet. Degreasing and painting the engine. And another old car is back onto the road, It's Alive! I hope you have enjoyed this series. Stay tuned for our up and coming episodes. I am not an Animal, I am a human being! (Ok I watched too many old movies when I was younger. It's Alive, is of course Frankenstein.)
  6. Jack M, I totally agree with you, but right now I am trying to scrape up $3200 for a sewer tap if they finally agree to allow one. And being able to poop is higher on my list.
  7. As best as I could find this would be a walk through a Futurliner. .
  8. Just in case there are those that do not know what a Futurliner is, here is a picture. The only problem with a Futurliner is there are no windows for the passengers. .
  9. Jeff Perkins, I'm pretty sure you have seen my BBQ high temp gauge (thermometer) on my Rolls Royce for my horn button (I had to put something there for now to pass inspection, and I really can't afford the $350 original horn button). A clock on the steering wheel makes for a much more acceptable item, and no doubt something originally there. Although the temp gauge starts at 100 degrees I'm sure it will at times down here in Texas show the true temp in the summer (where it is 100+ degrees the whole summer), especially with the windows rolled up and parked in the sun. 1956 Desoto Fireflite
  10. Success (kind of). So the good news is I got the pieces of the pin out, the bad news is if these are pot metal not sure they are good anymore, to weld back into place. The moral of this story is if all else fails get violent (with a grinder, hammer and a punch).
  11. Robert Street: Ella must have learned from a truck driver, their motto is clutches are only for starting and stopping. Good motto for those with short legs too.
  12. Matt Harwood I feel if you give someone a big enough parking lot they are bound to learn to drive. (No clutch?) And if Riley is only 9 years old I'm betting he is destined to be a football player. STEVE POLLARD it looks like your son has found his bliss behind the wheel driving in his dream, as I did so long ago.
  13. Most rearview mirrors do not stand the test of time, the silver coating (as all silver does) becomes tarnished. Because this mirror cannot be opened to replace the mirror, I made one to fit. Then if you paint a black rim around the mirror and the sides, and use urethane or silicon to attach it to the old mirror, most people will not notice. First I put paper on the mirror and traced the outline with a pin an cut that out. And cut some bathroom mirror to the same width and height. Then cut the curved pieces by carefully scribing straight lines around the curves and break with flat wide pliers. Then I carefully used the grinder to shape it, then used sandpaper to fine shape it and smooth it. (One mirror broke during this process and I had to start over.) Here is the Thunderbird mirror I made by the same method, with the black paint rim it is hard to notice (and no scribbly edge). .
  14. What wonderful pictures so far keep them coming ! (If I did not click the like button on your picture, it is only because I have to stop myself or I would click them all.)
