  1. Anyone have a good link to a page for modifying the blow off valve? I saw one but it was a fairly basic description...thanks for not blowing this off.
  2. And you are located in....? You may want to comparison shop the radios-they sell for 75-100 on ebay and rebuilt ones are about 175...
  3. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: cowancom</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Here are the 16". They are 13.5lbs each. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/16-Inch-Black-Wheels-Rims-motegi-traklite-5x100_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742Q2em153Q2el1262QQcategoryZ43956QQihZ003QQitemZ130174585348QQtcZphoto</div></div> Like unleaded gas: paying more to get less(weight)...
  4. As the title says, I want to downsize from 17's as the 45 series tires are disc bulgers on these NY roads. I'd like a light rim, both in weight and price. Any decent takeoffs from other cars that match up the 5x100 +35mm offsets?
  5. My pal in HS had a ratty 65 Stang with a 289 that I had the front wheels off the ground. Only found 1 GTO that could keep up with it back in the day. Your dad's caddy was a rare '42? I though they ended production in '41 for the war. And I was always tempted by a Jensen but had my fill of English machinery with odd Brit dirtbikes and the tr6. Here's your next electric car: http://www.aptera.com/
  6. Looks easier to just flip up the top and leave it unlatched if you're in a hurry. Although it saves wear and tear of dropping the top that many more times. I must open and close my top 2-3 times a day in the summer. I'd like to find one of the old tonneau covers that Karleen used to sell...
  7. Some of the critics were in the same line of work but I recall at least one of them admitted he himself was a reformed fraud. You can read about him on Wikipedia although they're not known to be 100%. Some people have a T1 line through the filmy veil and I think John's one of them now that I know you had the experience. And you think 16V parts are hard to find on this side??
  8. I recall seeing my 1st tvr on the local Brit repair lot in the 70s when I had a tr6. Nice ride but the top was hard! I always thought about dropping in a later 225hp V8 or 185hp V6 into a Dakota ragtop also. And in HS, a classmate had a new orange Stag when I had a 41 Caddy Fleetwood. Was the Jensen a hardtop?
  9. He has his critics-they say he 'cold reads' people and spends lots of time missing rather than hitting. I guess one would only know by a one on one experience like yours.
  10. Nice collection there Tom. all cars that held my interest at some point or other.
  11. I guess it pays to read every post in here. Here's some irony for you Tommy: we have an antiques shop about 2 miles form John Edward's office on L.I. We had tix to see him in November but got snowed out that night(the only snow of the year here). I'll have to drive by his office and show off a TC in the flesh.
  12. Holy spirits batman, John edward the medium read a guy who has a couple TC's! How clairvoyant.
  13. Glad to know I only had 2 of the cars on list....
  14. Some folks sell a pair of hardtops for that $$...
  15. Mine look like they were dipped in sh...t. At least they're winter rims only...
  16. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: cowancom</div><div class="ubbcode-body">If you watch the Barrett-Jackson auction this week you'll find people over paying for most of the cars. It's always better when at or in an auction to have a voice of reason with you. Mines my wife. 77 and cloudy in Orlando today. Tonight is going to be 40. Can't wait untill spring training. 30 days and counting. </div></div> Heya, did you make it to the Mecum auction this weekend? I stumbled on it from the guitar show in the other building. Now I know how they named it the company-when the seller saw the prices-"me come!"
  17. Wish thay would sell mine with the magic of B-J. They must pump lauging gas into those tents to get those $$$...$5mil for Shelby's Shelby?? I'm no socialist but maybe it's time to redistribute the wealth...
  18. Glad to see his is wrong and mine's correct..
  19. Bienvenue. I finally got a quote from Hagarty after hagelling but never took the policy. Do a search in here for brakes and you'll be quietly reading for hours.
  20. Eagle Alloy as in..? Weight is a BIG consideration in rims. Lots of tuners go big after hot rodding their motor and LOSE driveline HP.
