  1. I suppose quite a bit has been written about the Hydramatic Plant Fire of 1953.  http://www.autotran.us/TheGreatHydraMaticFire.html

    Most reports I have read state that some Cadillacs and Oldsmobiles were equipped with Dynaflow transmissions, and Pontiacs with Powerglides, until the new plant could be built and up to speed. 

    Has anyone ever seen a Cadillac or Oldsmobile with a Dynaflow?

     I wonder how many were built, and how many may survived.    Thanks!

    The mangled piece from the front brakes in the last picture is a static eliminator for the radio. You can go without it. 


    Not too old to learn something new.  Please explain how that piece in the wheel hub can work as a radio static eliminator.  Thanks.

  3. Welcome Young Kid.  53 Specials are my favorite Buicks, as my family had one when I was a boy.   I hope to get one someday.  

    Also I lived in Central IL (Sullivan and Bethany) for 18 years.  Been to Springfield many times.

    Nice smattering of mid-50’s American cars.  I see 3, maybe 4 Buicks.  1 Packard, 1 Dodge, a Plymouth or two, 1 or 2 Olds, a couple of Chevy pickups and a bunch of Fords.

    What about a 302 GMC?  I have an NOS short block in stock.  




    Thanks.   That’s a popular swap in old Chevy trucks to replace a tired 216 or 235.  They are getting harder and harder to find though.  

  6. Thanks!

     I went to the seller’s website (Sweden).  17 pictures and I translated the description into English.  It identifies it as a Special.  It’s a custom car with a 430-4 V8 and Automatic from a 67 Wildcat.  A/C, PS, PB, stereo, etc.  Sold.  

    There seems to be a lot of American cars and trucks in Europe. 

  7. Thanks for all responses.  

    I saw this video on YouTube of a beautiful black 1950 Jetback 4-door somewhere in Europe. 

    Is that a Roadmaster or Super? I wish they showed the engine.
