    Shipping/Postage costs

    Auburnseeker Thanks for the tip on international shipping. I've been importing Long Range fuel tank for 4x4 from Australia and the tanks are expensive, even with seafreight. Fedex was another $500 for two fuel tanks. Delivery was great. Freight forward set it up in Australia.

    Shipping/Postage costs

    yes, shipping figure need to be check on big item before quoting. I purchase a Class 3 trailer hitch in the Large Box for $150 including shipping, then sold a rear bottom seat for 1940 packard for $100 plus $100 shipping on ebay. I use the class 3 trailer hitch box, little stretch on the girth bottom seat, SHipping only $180, fedEx seem to the cheaps, UPS was $280 plus. Freight forwarders about the same plus a long drive to drop off.

    Using Dynacorn reproduction bodies

    even bad original car might make a great parts car for all the odds and ends you need to make it right. I just check it out and they have 1967/68 Mustang fastback I loves and drove from 1970-1979. less hood scoop. Look like a 67 Shelby style scoop to me. Sure make be wonder about building one.

    Tupelo Museum Closing, Selling Off Cars

    I love touring museums around the country. there's always a museum or few in the area at the AACA national Meet, not always a car museum, but something worth seeing. I alway plan an extra day to see the local site at these locations. I think it sad when any close. It is great seeing cars at car shows and tours. I believe museums car get seen more than we realize, unless their private.
  12. Pomeroy4144 Great to see you our driving for Christmas Eve. We light dusting of snow on the lower near mountain top say 10 miles away . The skiers should be happy, Mt Hood, Oregon, 90 minutes drive, is open with the Timberland Lodge at 7800 feet base camp . Timberland and interesting visit, it was build during the height of the depression by the civilian conservation corp, and dicated by President Franklin D Roosevelt. Here a virtual tour. this would be a great place to spend Christmas. My old College Room Mate, Allan. later a Porsche fan Love to ski on CHristmas Day. https://www.timberlinelodge.com/weddings#virtual-tour

    1948 AACA Magazine and bulletins

    Dynaflash8 Yes, I enjoy these old AACA magazine too. I am glad your enjoying yours as well. I especially love the stories from the 50's; where people are working on their earlier era car in their garage or driveway and with help of local blacksmith to make parts, often for free. The touring stories from 50's along with others from the past, such as, the great New York to paris Race in 1905 or thereabouts. BBC has done a great recreation of this tour on DVD. There is a good chance I may have a near complete duplicate set from 50's [possible even a one or two from 1949 should someone want to trade or is interested. Joe
  14.
