  1. I would perform voltage drop test from battery to starter. If you have good circuit how about carbon build up raising compression. If car was run on choke a lot carbon could be issue.
  2. Here in New Jersey we call them traffic circles, not roundabouts. I read that they were invented in NJ. We have no trouble with them.
  3. just a note on get smart, sunbeam tiger was later replaced by vw Carmen Ghia when vw became their sponsor.
  4. How about 70 corvette with 350 engine & 4sp. A/c & p/s. In blue. Nice top down cruiser. Other choice 39 plymouth convertible. Maybe both if available at original price!
  5. Suggestion for next year. Saturday handicapped parking is too far from show field. 1 1/2 miles. Also no place to charge scooters by show field, had to push my wife’s scooter back to giant center. Great show as always!
  6. I will check with my agent but getting down to the wire now. Is it suggested or required? We are always very careful around the cars but things happen & then you have to man up & pay up.
  7. We are bringing a scooter we rented and were told we had to register it. Nothing was said about insurance. We have a placard from the state for our car. Hopefully we are ok.
  8. Last year they were recharging scooters by giant center. My wife is renting one here in nj for $100 for the week. Comes apart & fits in back of my Jetta wagon. I just can’t buy as many parts, no room left!
  9. I remember reading Tom Macahils roadtest of first a/c cobra w260 v8. 140mph! I was in love. I also remember him rolling over testing a Renault! He impressed me that a car had to corner well &not just go fast. My other favorite was Gus Wilson’s model garage. Part detective part mechanic. I diagnosed my bosses truck at age 16 with help from Gus. Like to think what I learned then helped me through my 40+ years working in the car business
  10. You should try a voltage drop test. Attach digital volt meter, pos to engine bock, neg to battery post. Crank engine & watch reading. Should be less than tenth of volt. You can move leads around to plan point where drop ls. Same for pos side. Battery post (positive) to starter post. We used this method my vow shop for years. Old bugs would burn throttle &heater cables if engine ground was bad. We had trouble with sciroccos losing spark when cranking in cold weather also. Resitance between trans mount & trans case(ground cable @ mount) caused back feed to stop spark but starter stil
  11. My wife wants me to add her favorites. Brickers fries, ice cream from those guys with the hit & miss engine churn & dinner at the Crossroads diner, My sons always want Penn dutch chicken soup at Chocolate world. The soup however has gotten expensive & portions smaller. I got very very sick one year eating at the wrong stand so now I am very careful.
  12. nice beetle! I noticed different wheels onthis picture from last.
  13. I have been following the posting of Hershey pictures & they are great. I took over 100 myself, but I have a small problem. I forgot to snap my own car! We were in hpof front row 2 cars down from the Mora & next to a 40 ford coupe. We have a 65 blue ford galaxie 4door hartop. If you have anything showing our car or even part of our car please post it or send to my email. ajmd@juno.com Thanx.
  14. my 1948 motors repair manual lists 153624 for plymouth 6cyl
