  1. I always liked the Quick Silver by Zimmer until I owned a Fiero GT. They are about 15K in that shape and will always look like a radical customized Riviera to me. The GT was fun to drive and felt like a Go Cart with A/C. Mine had a Ferrari look.
  2. We went 30 years in a row. but not restoring or building anything any more, so we're staying home. They had a good car corral and a awesome 5000 car show, but not buying or selling right now. When I was shopping, buying or selling we always went and enjoyed it and put a car in the show for the best parking. Black Friday the ladies went shopping across the street at the MALL. Everybody was happy/
  3. Yes, it counts! Now that you have driven it around the parking lot and soon, maybe today will be driving it on public roads. This 1917 White with it's own thread is a prime example of driving them in "original as found condition". We all applaud your efforts !
  4. My father had a 1958 Eldo Biaritz Conv. with emblems and wheels anodized in gold, A very pretty car. In late 67 and early 68 my brother an I came home to Florida after our overseas military tours and my brother traded his Porsche for Dad's Caddy and headed for the state of Washington for his next assignment. In Minneapolis the wheel bearings collapsed and were not available in dealerships or parts stores. My uncle who worked there at Honeywell went in on Saturday and made a new set. The Caddy weighed to much for those bearings, check yours.

Here it's spaced properly, but in the forum it had many two words lines an no structure. Posted just now I had a friend drive up from south Florida to NC in a Chevy Volt. Got horrible mileage because he had to drive with the gas generator running full time to charge the batteries. I had a chance to drive it, but not to the hospital. It d
  7. I had a friend drive up from south Florida to NC in a Chevy Volt. Got horrible mileage because he had to drive with the gas generator running full time to charge the batteries. I had a chance to drive it, but not to the hospital. It drove a lot nicer than the last 1917 electric I drove. It had a steering wheel instead of levers and a "gas pedal" on the floor. It was smooth and fast and now I understand why the drag racers want them banned from drag strips. With the 1917, I was more than happy to have the owner coaching me, but the Volt was easier than
  8. I think the sales of #1 & #2 vehicles are doing well, but the #3,#4,#5 & #6 and big projects are falling off. The problem is that many sellers see their vehicles as #1 & #2, when they are not.
  9. One man tops, was a great automotive . Ford didn't have that until much later.
  10. Thanks, I could always find it by going to "Home" when I can't find "Bookmarks" or "Favorites", Now I'll just add the new link to bookmarks. Last week when all this changed, we were off the grid camping, which i s sometimes necessary in today's world.
