  1. I saw this a while ago in an abbreviated form. It was taken a few days before the great San Francisco earthquake. It has quite a few shots of old cars in it. What is surprising how they were driving all over the place with disregard to any traffic laws. I assume there were few at that point in time. Also, I wonder what the cars are as I am certainly not an expert on them. I hope I am not repeating anything previously posted.
  2. Since the release of version 5.0, Gutenberg has been the default editor. If you want to use it for your editor as opposed to the one currently in use, "the classic editor", you have to choose it. To do so, go to settings and choose writings under this menu. There you will find Default editor for all users where you can choose: Classic Editor or Block Editor (Gutenberg). Gutenberg is the future of WordPress although the classic editor will be supported for the near future but not indefinitely from what I have read. It uses blocks, essentially paragraphs, as the default. In addition, there are many types of blocks predefined such as for tables, lists, etc. When you go to add a block, you will see a menu of many types. One advantage of the default block is that it will take a Word formatted document that is inserted into the block and retain the formatting which the classic editor used to do but has not for a while. You can also mix different types of blocks within one block. For example, you might have a block table within the block and include a list block below that might contain definitions of codes contained in the table. Also, if you use the same format for many pages, you an create a custom block, save it, and reuse it again as needed. An example might be where you use a page for a member's car where the only change is the picture and some wording. You can go back and forth between editors if you desire. The page you originally did in the classic editor will remain formatted as it was if you choose to change to the block editor. Thus the page can have mixed editor formats. If you are unfamiliar with Gutenberg, you can find many videos on it through YouTube and other areas of WordPress help. It is similar to Word in many aspects.
  3. This fire was in the Pittsburgh area. I hope none of the people all of you know had anything there. Links to a few stories are below. https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2019/05/08/etna-warehouse-fire-storage-unit-damage/ https://triblive.com/local/pittsburgh-allegheny/at-least-75-vehicles-inside-etna-storage-facility-that-caught-fire-owner-says/ https://www.post-gazette.com/local/north/2019/05/09/Warehouse-fire-Etna-destroyed-hundreds-antique-cars-and-motorcycles/stories/201905090095
  4. Pep Boys has one that is not too bad. Use part# 62680. It is on sale for 188.99. Not perfect but might meet your needs for that price.

  8. Wayne, I hope you bring it to Hershey. It will fit in nicely in the prototype class. You may want to add the correct period whitewalls.
  9. Terry, I bet you have mixed feelings about breaking your leg to get to see this series. Hope you heal soon.
  10. Also, post this on the Olds forums lower under the discussions.

  13. I had my 61 Olds radio fixed by a friend in my antique radio club. One problem was the one transistor was bad. A replacement was $100, but a member had one he gave me for nothing. It is an AC Delco one, but there are equivalents available to it. I use an FM converter for FM.
  14. British Standard Whitworth (BSW) is one of a number of imperial-unit-based screw thread standards which use the same hexagonal bolt head and nut sizes, the others being British Standard Fine thread (BSF) and British Standard Cycle. These three are collectively called Whitworth threads. Santa uses North Pole left twists if I remember correctly. He has to plug in thought as he runs at 330W.
  15. No smart phone but I added an app to my air compressor so I know which way to turn the wrench on when I plug it it.
