  1. Well I guess you learn something new every day. I should pay more attention. Here are LED replacements for florescent fixtures. https://www.grainger.com/product/246N12
  2. I didn’t know that. Could you post a link?
  3. There are a number of 1 in a thousand sorts of issues that could be the problem. The wrong head gasket isn't a bad guess. I've heard of stupid things too, like a water pump impeller being backwards or being turned the wrong way - I have no idea how you can do that. I like the idea of using a heat gun to see what is getting hot.
  4. My issues may have been specific to my car, but I had 3 separate incidents where the car had to be towed. One was ignition, I forget the other 2. The thing is, the car looked like a cream puff. I only drove it for about 6 months.
  5. Eddy, the reason they don’t show up at PAS meets is fear of heading back towards their car and seeing you standing on the fenders urinating on the hood!!!
  6. Was that 2018 that they were all at Pebble? Not my cup of tea either.
  7. Ed, It still has the 366. Isn't a Packard 120 still a Packard? Isn't a 20/25 Rolls still a Rolls? If the car sells for under 10k and it runs and drives I don't have a problem with it. Hopefully the buyer doesn't have dreams of "restoring" it.

  9. Ed, you are saying they frown on newbies asking obscure questions with little information provided and then disappearing when questioned? Sounds like we need some of their culture here.
  10. Silly me didn't pick up on the paint either. Running/driving open 12 cylinder Packard should still bring somewhere near 100k.
  11. Keith, You are not going to offend any of the guys I see posting on this thread. For the most part, Ed scared off the sensitive guys a long time ago.
  12. Steve, that car was the biggest disparity between the way it looked and the way it ran I have ever seen in my life. What a POS.
  13. Cool body. Comments? Since the seller is Peter Kumar, he would probably know more than me. But I do not believe he is getting anywhere near the 90k. https://www.ebay.com/itm/274878069840 Highly Original 1929 Cadillac 1183 Dual Cowl Phaeton with Body by Fisher: Out of 40 Year Ownership and Never Restored This 1929 Cadillac 1183 Dual Cowl Phaeton with Body by Fisher is just out of 40 year ownership. Two-town grey with black interior and red wire wheels. Among the most elegant of the Cadillac s many available body styles was the Fisher Body-built dual-cowl phaeton that gave rear passengers their own cowl and windshield. The previous owner purchased this car in 1981 and drove it up until 2007 when he parked it in dry storage. An extremely original car that's nothing but straight and honest. It's never been restored and is very solid with a great body and undercarriage. The doors open and close nicely as well. The car is solid and comes complete. The car was last running in 2007 and wears older paint showing its patina. Get it running again and drive as-is, or consider it the ideal restoration candidate. Collectible and Desirable Dual Cowl Phaeton Out of 40 Year Ownership Body by Fisher Excellent Body and Very Solid Highly Original, Never Restored $89,500 Firm
