  1. Ok, technically I didn’t say never, Pete 😜 I think I have one in the garage, but being Xmas eve, I’m kinda busy. PM me 195354
  2. You’re going to have to make the rubber piece no matter what. They have universal exhaust hangers at most auto parts stores that have six inch strips of rubber that you can cut to length and then bolt to the old metal pieces you already have. I have done this many times and I use a socket head stainless bolt to somewhat simulate a rivet.
  3. Al, My 55 Century convertible had the stencil upside down as well. I assume they were painted that way. Mine also had a 46C designation. The number on the frame is the part number, btw, not a serial number. Painting the underside is considered “over-restoration” and is not gigged on BCA judging.
  4. George, Check your private message. I have some of those parts.
  5. Thanks Lance It is rusty, NOT rusted. Rubber is still good and the stainless can of course be polished.
  6. Got this from Wheatbelt when Ken was closing shop. It was in his miscellaneous 54-59 pile. it’s not 54-55. Looks like passenger side that attaches to the bumper bracket and hugs the bottom side of the bumper. $25plus shipping If somebody tells me it’s really rare $$225 😁
  7. (Sold) Hi guys, I am clearing some items out of my home and garage. I am posting here before going to the Bugle and then eBay. Please don’t make me go to eBay... These are just quick pics. I will PM you other pics if you want. You pay shipping, obviously. 1962 Buick Features and Facts book. Good shape Cover is a little worn. No water stains or funky smells $100 1962 Buick Color-Trim book good shape. Everything is there. Some of the fabrics have moldy spots on them which could be cleaned, but I’m not going to do that. Paint chips are a little worn on the ears. Smells more like an old car than an old book 😜 $225 (Deuce and a quarter, if you prefer) Thanks Mike
  8. Not disagreeing, but in my opinion this disaster has brought out the best in people. Houston neighbors are helping neighbors. Real people in Austin are donating blood, goods, services and money at an extraordinary rate. I've seen it first hand. When I worked at the food bank. Today my wife donated money and her company doubled it. Be optimistic and stop looking for the bad side dammit. Now wanna get angry at somebody? Our senator who voted against money for you Yankees in Superstorm Sandy wants money for us. Hypocrite. Oh, and I wish everybody would just sell one cigarette for when you have been drinking and you need to turn green without buying a whole pack.
  9. We're alright. From Snopes: Trolls are creating fake tweets about looting There are a bunch of social media posts of varying virality claiming to show evidence of widespread looting in Houston after Harvey. At least some of these tweets are obvious trolls — particularly those using the hashtag #HarveyLootCrew. As Motherboard explained, trolls have previously used #BaltimoreLootCrew and #SandyLootCrew to try and make fake posts about looting go viral during major news events.
  10. That's the deluxe wheel, Mud. Can't help ya, Bill I have an NOS emblem from a standard wheel, but have never even seen one up close.
  11. Willie is closer to the mess than I am. The wind is relatively calm here, but it has been steadily raining for almost 24 hours. I have spoken with some friends in Houston who are more concerned. I bet that building could be bought for a song. I know a song...
  12. I may have to look at this old garage in Galveston if it is still standing next week
  13. There is a big part of your problem. Old bias ply tires ride rough and wander even more than new ones.
  14. How old are the Remington tires? I'm guessing not recent vintage.
  15. There is zero reason to tow an ugly trailer behind an old car.
  16. Another very important difference that I noticed between European and American drivers is that Europeans know what lane you are supposed to DRIVE in and which lane you are supposed to PASS in. Driving with patience, civility and courtesy is rare to see.
  17. Have you called Steele Rubber? They might be who Russ sends em to.
  18. Wow, it's about time somebody put the black knob on those.
