  1. Very nice, I can't remember the last time I saw one.

    1948 Davis

    Seeing a car like that, would make my da. That is awesome.
  3. I mostly collect 1/25 scale model cars, dealer promos and kits. I have over 550 on display in two rooms. I also have other scale models, along with badges, license plates and other auto related items.
  4. My father was a commercial sign painter. Every so often, four or five cars would show up at the house to have names painted on them. I was in my early teens, and the guys always treated me to a great personal tour of the custom, semi custom cars. My first nice car, 1963 Impala convertible, my father added gold leaf Playboy Bunny's, to the lower front fenders. I wish I had pictures.
  5. January 1966, I took my drivers test in my fathers 1963 Falcon Futura, 2 door sedan.
  6. I put DOT 5 in my 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in 1989. The pedal is firm, not spongy, and the fluid is still as clear as water. I drive the car about 20 miles a week.
  7. It was built several years ago, for the Houston, Texas art car parade.

    1953 Desoto

    Congratulations, that is a great looking Desoto.
  9. I did this set of 1965 Texas plates.
  10. I've only had it in one show. It was an Oldsmobile Club of America zone show. My car received Chairmans Choice, and class awards. Most of the shows here in Houston are 1979 and earlier, or it is put in with newer Mustang's, Corvette's and Camaro's. I don't bother showing it. Very few people seem to have an interest in it, it's not a muscle car. The car is all original, except the two outside mirrors have been repainted, and I know have different wheels on it. The 205 70 R13's are hard to find, and they are expensive. For driving, I have American Racing wheels, and 14" tires on it.
  11. It's really nothing special, but it is mine, and I bought it new in June 1985. My Oldsmobile Calais has a 5 speed manual transmission, HD suspension, and some other odd options.
  12. Looking at page #8, of the dealer brochure, radial tires were standard. http://www.lov2xlr8.no/brochures/mercury/78mq/78mq.html
  13. I thought I was the only one that had one of the little Pinto's. I actually have two of them.
  14. I like my oddball 1985 Oldsmobile Calais with a 5 speed manual transmission.
  15. Great find. Do post more pictures when you get them home, and cleaned up.
