  1. Here is a 1958 Dodge Dealer give a way;
  2. That will not work on a 1966 Mustang. 1967 was the first year the Mustang had in dash air conditioning. The controls showing in the first picture above the dash vent, is for a 1968 Mustang.
  3. This is not a historic Buick Dealership, but I took this off my then new 1977 Buick Century. At the time, I was living in Melbourne Florida. I wanted a white with blue interior Century. Lane Pontiac, Buick did a dealer trade, and what came in was, Blue with White interior. Before I left the dealership, I pulled off the emblem. That's all I have left of my 77 Century.
  4. 211 are dealer promos. 391 That I built myself. With several in process. And, plenty still in boxes. I’ve been building and collecting model cars, since my Father gave me my first dealer promo in 1955. Yes, I do still have it. Many of the cereal box cars, I got out of the cereal boxes myself. In one way I’m lucky, my 23 year old granddaughter, wants all the models, and my 65 Corvette. She has a strong interest in cars, both big and small.
  5. One more, including Post Cereal Box Cars;
  6. Most, but not all;
  7. I've been building model cars for as long as I can remember. I presently have over 600, 1/25 scale model cars on display.
  8. I never said my Calais was a pace car. With 155,000 miles on the iron duke, it's not a piece of crap.
  9. Thank you for posting the great picture of the 1985 Indy Oldsmobile Calais. I have owned a 1985 Oldsmobile Calais, that I bought new, June 1985.
  10. I have had one claim with JC Taylor. I could not ask for better service.
  11. Try a restoration shop. I've installed 50's windshields, it's not that difficult. The hardest part is removing and reinstalling the trim.
  12. Last week, I bought a set of Toyo Extensa A/S white wall tires for my 65 Corvette. Discount had two brands of white wall tires, in the size I needed.
  13. I have an unopened gallon of PPG DDL9300 Black Lacquer, that I would be willing to sell.
  14. This site has 1963 Galaxie information that may help you; http://www.galaxie500site.com/models/1963/galaxie500sh.php
  15. My first date, in my own car was in July, 1966. I had graduated high school in June. My father cosigned for a car loan for a 1963 Chevrolet Impala convertible. It was Polomar Red, with black interior and top. On the way home from the dealership, a girl I went to school with was standing on the curb in front of her house. I stopped to show off my 'new' car. She was waiting for her 1959 Ford that she just bought, to be delivered. She like my car, and out of the blue, I asked her to a movie that night. We dated for about a year, then went our separate ways. We stayed in touch, until she passed away in March, 2016.
  16. I had been a subscriber of Old Cars Weekly, for well over 30 years. This past December, I dropped my subscription. Less content, and a higher subscription price was the reason.
  17. Back in the early 1980's, I owned a 1958 Edsel Ranger with a column shift, three speed manual transmission.
  18. This picture was taken with my 2 year old daughter, in January 1979, the day I bought home my new 1979 Turbo Mustang.
  19. They are pages out of the 1958 Edsel brochure. http://www.lov2xlr8.no/brochures/ford/58eds/58eds.html
  20. I worked for a Dodge dealer in 1966 thru 1968. I didn't see many Monaco station wagons even then. Great find, do enjoy.
  21. Since I sold my 1969 Plymouth, I have no need for the; 1969 Texas Inspection Sticker. It still has the protective film on the face side. $20.00 shipped.
