  1.  I go to a small radiator locally and he never seems to have any business. I commented on it one time about how he could make a living on the little business that he has.

     His comment floored me, he said that he only does it as a side line, his real job is flying 747"s for a living!

  2.  The safest way I think, is to go to your bank and hand the teller a deposit slip for the money and have the buyer hand it to the teller.

     The bank will then count it and verify that it is not counterfeit (the counting machine does that).

     You will then sign and hand him the title.


      The only other safe way for both party's is for the buyer to open an account in your bank and he wires the funds into it. Then both of you go to the bank and withdraw the cash or check and deposit into your account. It will require two trips but it could be worth it for both party's.

  3.  My uncle gave me a gold plated Tucker model that he found in the dump after the Tucker crash. There was a whole box of them.

     I played with it ruffly in the 50's and finally destroyed it.

     I sure wish that I had not been such a thoughtless child and that I had it now. (Who knew?)

  4.  I watched a video of a man putting air into a split ring wheel.

     He used a lock on air nozzle and a long hose.

     He connected the hose to a tire infiltrator with a gauge on it.

     He was 30' away from the tire as he inflated it.

     He also had chains around the tire.



    I have seen tire split rings so badly rusted, that I would not even be sure they would be considered scrap iron!

    It's a floor pan. Sand blast and brush on 2 wets coats of POR 15 ..............Bob


    POR will only have a mechanical bond if not applied over rust.

     If you want to sand blast, spray water on it to allow it to rust and then apply POR

    take a look at who is sponsoring the show, and possibly contact them in advance.  It's normally pretty obvious if it's going to be a "rods and used corvettes" show

     The problem that I have is at the local Corvette show is very few C1's and the rest are new Corvette's practically right off the show room floor.

    So, you're saying that I'm being too provocative by bringing this car to the attention of likeminded folks? You know this isn't the H.A.M.B., correct?


     My post was not in reply to your original post but to comments made or inferred by others.

  8.  To put that car on this web site is sure to rouse a few (or more) feathers.

     I had a similar car that was beyond restoration (money and labor wise) that I replaced the chassis under it and then sold it for above the price listed.

     The appearance was similar, and was a real attention getter. When I showed up at many shows, they wanted me to put it in the antique class.

     Because I like to weld and manufacture different things, it was just what I wanted and also just what the new owner wanted. he has taken many trophy's with it and loves to drive it.

     I only sold it because I wanted to build another car and I have too many others to store it.

     So to condemn a car because you don't like it, is like telling others that if you don't do it my way, it is no good, because I am the supreme authority on all cars.

  9.  After reading all of the replies here , and because the person that sent me the email has not responded, even though he sent me a PM through this site,  I now believe that it is some kind of scam.
