  1. It truly is good news. I'm sure everyone on this forum shares in your excitement. You have some really good friends there.
  2. Thanks everyone. I'm going to try and check everything everyone said. I'll keep you updated. I love this forum ! Thanks again.
  3. Thanks, guys. I will replace the condenser while checking the points gap. I really appreciate everyone's help.
  4. Thanks, MikeC5 I will check the gap. It could very well be the problem since I was inside the distributor.
  5. Need help please ! Hello everybody. Hope everyone is safe from all that is going on in the world. I need some help. I finally got my 29 sorted out (or so I thought). I've got a newly rebuilt Zenith 1 carb on my car and every so often at 1/2 throttle or so, it backfires thru the carb. Not always but enough for concern. I feel like I've got the timing dead on and I've followed the carb tuning that I found on another site. No change however. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

  7. 29Chandler, first and formost, we are praying for you. I truly understand what you're going thru. I worked with the North Carolina Forest Service for about 5 years. So, Yes I do know. I've made several trips out west to help with wildfires it's doesn't usually turn out good for all involved but, let me say this. Don't give up . Always have a plan but don't give up. There are plenty of great men and women out there doing their best. Maybe with enough prayers and some better weather everything will be O.K. I believe we would all be thinking about our classic cars and trucks but, everything can
  8. Although the glove box door looks like it has a chrome finish, the lines on the door line up perfectly with the lines on the rest of the dash. These ole pics seemed to bring up lots of good memories with quite a few members. Thanks again.
  9. Tony, I have no answer to your question as I live in NC. I do however love your truck. I don't know the year but, I learned to drive @ 13 y/o on a 1953 5 window. I will never forget how that old truck drove. I've looked for one for the past 20 years or so. Again, beautiful truck.
  10. Ben Bruce aka First born, that was back in May. Today it's 1.83 for regular unleaded ,1.89 for Diesel, and 3.01 for premium. LOL
  11. I have one of the "reproduction" window stickers for my Corvette Stingray for when I show it. I don't have it to try and deceive anyone. As a matter of fact, the guys that do the window stickers for the Corvette are so meticulous about reproducing these that you must send them proof of the Vin number so nothing can be added that didn't come with the car. Anyway, I have the document to let people remember what you got back in the day for $5600. I must be different than most because, I would have never thought of using one to deceive anyone.
  12. Padgett, sorry for the misunderstanding. I meant the replaced parts would have to be recalibrated. Not just by the dealer but as you know, most mechanics don't have the kind of software/tool to do this. (At least not in the area I'm from). I was just saying the parts weren't just plug and play type of parts. Cars are way too sophisticated people always seem to want the vehicle with everything.
  13. I work in the auto industry. Sorry but purposes that should be reasonably understood, I won't say what we build/produce. The parts we make are often changed out by the dealership after only 20-25 thousand miles. Mind you, most everyone reading this should be fully capable to change out these parts yourself but, they are designed in such a way after replacing on the automobile, they HAVE to be recalibrated by the dealer. Just another way to get your money. Saying this, anyone could change out our parts yourself and they would work fine except without the recalibration, you will always have a
  14. If I ever post anything that's not supposed to be posted, by all means delete it. Would not offend me in the least. We all need some type of policing in our everyday life. otherwise, things would really get sideways FAST !
  15. OH, AND FUTHERMORE, THE '66 AND 67 CHEVELLE SS ARE BRINGING A BOAT LOAD OF TODAY MONEY ! AROUND HERE AT LEAST.
