  3. I named my 46 Plymouth coupe "ol paint". During the initial restoration we tried taking it down to bare metal. Underneath 3 coats of paint was what I believe was the original primer, a dull red thick coat of paint. It resembled the paint they used to use on I beams and what not in construction years ago. After 3 of us spent 40 hours each (120 man hours) trying every trick we knew we finally gave up. The name, like the paint, stuck. Haven't named my 26 Chevy yet. Active word being yet.
  4. In 1970 just a few weeks before I turned 20 (so I was still a teen) I got lost one day coming home from work. We passed a 46 Plymouth business coupe that was for sale. $50 later I drove it away. I drove it right up til the summer of 2003 when I went to Iraq. The car disappeared in my absence. Thirtyfive years of memories went into that ol car. It took me over alot of the USA. It watched me raise three children. It watched me go from a pup to an old dog. Definitely my favorite. I used to tell my kids if it could talk I would shoot it in the carborator. I tried posting a picture but for some reason it wouldn't work.
  5. The local law enforcement hasn't been much help either. He can run, but he can't hide. I'll find him eventually. Not sure about my car though. 15 1/2 months is plenty of time to strip the car and part it out on ebay or simply sell it as scrap metal.
  6. My guess is a front seal is bad. At a standstill the oil is more level than when going down the road, thus the difference in am't of oil lost at an idle as opposed to driving.
  7. My 26 Chevy came with alemite fittings. Those are the ones with the pins on each side. All the original books I have refer to them as alemite fittings. The gun that was used is called an alemite grease gun, IIRC.
  8. Been lurking here for awhile, I guess it's time I said something. May 29, 1970 I bought a '46 Plymouth Business coupe. I still had it October of '03 when I left for Iraq. I paid some one to store it for me in my absence. I continued to pay him the entire 15 months I was gone. I even talked to him by phone from Baghdad several times. I came home Dec '04. Neither he nor my car can be located. My kids earliest memories involve that car. I want it back. Just before I returned I also bought a '26 Chevy Roadster. But thats only about 7 months so I don't have bragging rights there.
