  1. Good luck. Mine leaks around the windshield and the cowl. My Cord is even worse. My 34 Auburn just drips (as opposed to pouring like the Cord and LZ).
  2. You are so right. I love the whisper-quiet of a V-12. I will try your fix tomorrow.
  3. Found them. Gave them a good oiling, now I am thinking I might just need to tighten the belt. I will give that a shot tomorrow.
  4. Thanks. That is what I thought. My shed is too dark for me to examine without a flashlight. I will pull it out tomorrow and take a look. What type of oil do you all suggest?
  5. I can't remember, help me out here, is there a spot where you oil or lube the water pump? I have one that is making some noise, but not leaking. On my Auburn there is a place for oiling.
  6. As I remember, having seen the serial fifteen or more years ago, the front skirts did move when the wheel turned.
  7. I remember seeing the serial on TCM many years ago. The original Batmobile in the early 40s serial was also a Lincoln.
  8. How are this old gal has come. Super job. What a car this is going to be. Sadly, with the economy going like it is, I might just have to sell my LZ in 2009.
  9. I used to drive all three of my pre-WWII cars at least once a week to the post office, bank and/or church. That's changed a bit. As gas has gone up and I office at home, I now ride my bike to the five mile round trip to the post office and bank each day and just take the cars out on Saturdays or to shows. So the 37 LZ goes out every third Saturday for my weekend errands, then gets to rest while I use the 34 Auburn the next weekend and the 36 Cord the following. We had a local show over the 4th and had all of them there. When I got home took a photo of the three parked in the backyard along with our 65 Mustang Fastback. It was the first time I've ever shot the four of them together. Kind of fun to look at four really unique and timeless designs side by side.
  10. Looks super. You have come so far with a car many would not have even attempted. By the way, I did drive my 37 today, but is is a poor to a 3 window coupe. Just can't get much cooler than that!!! And I sincerely mean that!
  11. I broke a glass one and bought two new plastic ones from Rolf and they are super!
  12. I restored a 57 Ranchero a few years back and found the build sheet in the door. Have not been that lucky with any of my other cars.
  13. What I need is an inside door handle. Mine broke the other day. My outsides are fine. Thanks Cecil.
  14. I went to a Wal-Mart in the hobby department and found some thin wire I used to keep them on. It has worked well for over a year. Super buy on the light. Anyone know where I find a rear door handle for my 37?
