  1. If the diameter is the same as the V-8 it would be simple to machine it down.
  2. A collector moves his cars by starting and driving them. A hoarder moves is cars by digging them out from under the old wall paper rolls and packing crates and hooking a chain to them. A stockpiler is just trying to keep them away from the hoarders.
  3. That would undoubtedly be the most effective solution and I haven’t ruled it out, but it would involve irreparable modifications. Only people who take themselves too seriously.
  4. The one I remember most was the little old lady at the end of the street. Actually it was my brother who remembered and related it to me. She had a red car that she traded in on a 6th generation Riviera. My brother asked me, “Do you remember that red car Georgia had? That was a Hemi Cuda.”
  5. I mean other the the window units you see spray foamed into Suburbans in the Walmart parking lot. A quick search didn’t turn up anything recent, if there’s a recent thread about this if someone would kindly direct me to it. Otherwise, does anyone have a recommendation for a portable AC for our base model sedans ordered by some cheapskate who figured he could just roll down the windows? There are even cordless rechargeable versions available. Prices are $50 to $1000 in all shapes and sizes. Almost sounds too good to be true.
  6. Do I understand correctly that the a-arms from a ‘59 can be retrofitted to the ‘57, eliminating the unobtainable ball joints? Or did I dream that?
  7. I must agree with the above two posts. I did the same thing with an old truck, snapped an axle at an intersection and there I sat. Bought a complete used rear axle/differential from a wrecking yard and still drive it today. In another truck I stripped the differential ring gear, the symptoms sound closer to what you describe, but the fix was the same.
  8. Another bit of trivia, if I’m not mistaken, the crash occurred near the site of the picnic scene in To Catch a Thief.
  9. This garbage will continue for exactly as long as we allow it. Long over due for some pushback.
  10. My Dad always told me you had to dissolve the sugar in warm water.
