  1. Once we forget history, we tend to repeat it. I'm U.S. Army retired and I've seen what this new generation is doing to our history. Thank you all who have lost Dads, Moms, Brothers Sisters, Aunts, Uncles, Grandfathers or Grandmothers to this . God bless you all.
  2. Mr. Wells, I did ask and I do value your opinion. I will remove the air cleaner tomorrow. Thank you for your advice.
  3. Yesterday I was told by an older gentleman that I needed to take the air cleaner off my model a. He said they weren't designed to have them. He explained the carb would run richer with the air cleaner in place. And, since there weren't that many dirt roads around here the filter wasn't really cleaning anything anyway. Comments ?
  4. SORRY but this is so wrong on so many levels ! LOL
  5. I bought a car one time sight unseen. But the seller did face-time me with several videos and even videoed several questions I had with the car. Also, the seller agreed to bring the car to me for the price of fuel 1 way . I told him I would put the fuel money into his pay-pal account on the condition the fuel money would be refunded if I bought the car. We both agreed if the car was not as he had described, he would leave with the car only getting the 1 way fuel money. The car was way better than I had thought. I've always been apprehensive of "inspections". Good luck!
  6. Hmmmm, beat the thug at his own game. Smart feller.
  7. There you go Oldcarfudd. Life was meant to be enjoyed. And, being able to drive an old car. WOW !
  8. There is not any restrictions on the inspection sticker. In NC if he had daylight driving restriction, the small white block would have been punched out. Our inspection stickers use to have the monthly dates down both sides of the sticker and the date it was inspected was punched out. In the mid 70's the state changed over to this example of inspection sticker so law enforcement could better see the date. That is a sweet ride tho...
  9. Here's a pic of me with my '29 Model A at a local weekly car show held at an old fashioned drive in restaurant where the owner is also into classic cars. He has hundreds of photos posted inside his restaurant.
  10. Funny, I saw this thing on here last night and today on the world wide interweb I read it was being taken to Florida to be restored ? The article had several pics of this car and it was cut into 4 different sections. I guess for transport. It does have a hot tub in the very end of it. My question, why in the heck would you ?......
  11. Regular unleaded here in Morganton, NC is $141.9 per gallon. Filled up the Stingray with (Premium) $262.9 per gallon !
  12. O.K. friends, we got it running. The float must have been stuck. I took the carb apart and cleaned it up ( even though it was newly rebuilt ). By WE I mean all of the help you guys offered. I couldn't have done it without all of your help. Thank you to everyone who offered constructive help.
  13. I will definitely be on the lookout for both in North Carolina. Sorry for your loss. Hope we get it back unhurt.
  14. 1929 Model A 1973 Corvette Stingray Here in N.C. we get a brand new regular plate just like every other Joe. You can put any plate on your car as long as the agency issued plate is somewhere in the car. It doesn't have to be displayed. Have never got stopped in either car.
