  1. I am having this problem with my '76 Cutlass. It is the switch in my case, and the passenger side part rarely works right from the driver's side 'master' switch (works fine from the passenger side). I can find new 4 door driver's door switches (4 position switch) all day long, but nothing for the two door which is what I have. I have one switch that I found new years ago, but its now going bad. As of two years ago, the local dealership (used to sell Olds, now sells all other GM products) was able to get the window switch for the '79's & newer, so you may want to check with them if you can

The price of gasoline just went down from $4.029 to $3.969. </div></div> Its a shame to have to feel <span style="font-style: italic"><span style="font-weight: bold">good</span></span> about $3.969 a gallon. Cheapest here is $3.939, a whopping 3 cents difference. Keep the change, it all sucks. I only drive to town twice a week when possible - sick mother-in-law sometimes makes

  4. HOLY COW! My magazine arrived BEFORE Susan's?!? My mail lady musta traded her slow postal delivery yak in for something a little more speedy! I can't believe it - may take weeks for me to recover!! What can I say, another great looking issue. Before I even looked inside, I was spreading that cover out. Cool
  5. I just returned from a round trip from Marion, NC to Richmond, VA in my '76 Oldsmobile with the stock Olds 350/auto trans. Got on average 18.6/hwy. Most I had to pay on a 15 gal. fill up was $60. Our '70 Chrysler 300 with a 440 gets on average 20+/hwy, while the '71 300 with a detuned 440 (only difference in engine between 1970 & 1971) & that gets at best around 17. Both have around a 25 gal gas tank, but haven't recently filled either of the 300's.
  6. I've sold cars that I was completely upfront about as well, most times getting asking price or just barely less. Had one fella drive overnight from the upper peninsula of Michigan, & once he saw the car started throwing the money at me he was so excited - didn't bother to look under the hood, in the trunk or even start the car! If the old fella with the MG were as upfront about what he was selling, I wouldn't have bothered going to look. He probably thought that if I came all that way, I'd go home with what amounted to his parts car regardless of condition.
  7. Hey Susan We had a similar experience in Ohio - went to look at an MG convertible that was represented as 'like new'. There was more fiberglass in it than our 15' boat has, and to top it off he wouldn't let anyone drive the car! I'd seen parts cars that looked better. A real waste of a 20 hour round trip drive. What would Wayne need a stinkin' hood for? After all, you'd want to show off <span style="font-style: italic">all</span> of that chrome blower, wouldn't ya?? BTW, was really good meeting you & Bill in Charlotte. Glad we were able to hook up. Dawn
  8. Wayne- I'm sorely disappointed I didn't get to see you there on Saturday, even though you took a picture of the MG that was parked behind our yellow & black '70 300! YOU WERE THAT CLOSE TO BEING HASSLED!! I did get to meet Shop Rat & Novaman. That was great. Next time, Wayne, all I can say is next time. Dawn
  9. Glad to hear you'll be there Wayne. Shop Rat & I were planning on giving you a hard time there!!

  11. My '71 300 isn't getting driven as much as I'd like because the radiator has been out since the end of August. Got it fixed & back end of September, & it seems like it'll never get back in the car. Mother-in-law has been in hospital/rehab since October & just got home - with the amount of attention she requires now, don't know if it'll be on the road anytime soon. Normally it is my daily driver (won't take out if roads here have been salted - which is only on average twice a winter).
  12. I saw an interesting one (not car related) at a local BBQ place being used. It was shaped like a revolver...the 'smoking gun'
  13. If you can't find the book new, look for used copies of it on both ebay & Amazon
  14. Actually, that would be pretty cool to have a series of 'hints' for newsletter & website editors. Would have helped me tremendously when I first took over doing our newsletter, and scary thing is how much I'm still learning about the program I'm using. My husband thinks I've lost what little is left of my mind when I 'discover' an easier way to do something while working on the newsletter - says the laughing & babbling freaks him out! ( can't imagine why! He ought to be used to it by now)
