  1. Ron....from the size of your pile of extra parts, you can build a Kissel tow truck.......very neat toy. Just planting a seed for the next project........can't start too soon!
  2. I was up.........fixing a car.
  3. Not only is the fan a deduction, the cooling system isn’t functioning as it should........in some clubs you would get hit in mechanical as well as authenticity..
  4. No, I don’t, but AJ and a few other regulars here are out there this weekend. The great stuff is selling for all the money, the very good stuff is somewhere between soft and blah, and the run of the mill interesting and fun stuff is flat on its face. And it seems to be that way across the board. There are occasional machines that break the patterns, but the ones that do probably won’t hold up in the long run.
  5. Well, the VW.........I mean Porsche and the Car of the Star were both built in the same place. I don’t understand how a VW would bring that kind of money.............what do I know......I’ve been at this over forty years and still can’t figure out pricing,
  6. No, it was an attempt to prevent points burning out if you left your key on...........or to prevent them pitting over time.
  7. A fantastic V-16 at Arizona, all original, needs nothing. Jump in and tour. Drive it home.......65k.
  8. To be fair, B & S modified many, many more cars than they actually built from scratch. If I’m not mistaken, they only built less than five total bodies. Many of the cars they did modify were already masterpieces........and thus establishing good results were problematic at best. Slight updates to modernize the car were more successful than the major do overs. Over time, some of their designs and modifications have grown on me...............I’m getting soft in my old age.
  9. Five percent of their cars were very well done, and the other ninty five percent were a crime. As David said....an assault on your senses............I believe the actual charge was “intent to blind”............but only if you were lucky!
  10. Interesting on the water and freeze treatment. Undamaged flat head gaskets can often be used over several times. I changed out a 35 Auburn head gaskets last month.........took about three hours start to finished on a supercharged car.
  11. Not sure what is worse....a Davis....or The Flying Wombat! To each his own.............lots of other snide off color comments and jokes withheld as not to offend people.
  12. Yup........I like the snobby, elitist junk from the pre war era.........glad no one else likes them!
  13. Cutting back the amperage will effect coil recharge speed.........especially if it’s a single point unit, and you would feel it at higher rpm’s. And as temperatures increase under hood, amperage would drop further. Basically by installing it, your cutting down your coil KV’s and making your spark weaker........something I try not to do.
  14. Slick car.........hope it stays in it's home country.......great driver even by todays standards.
