  1. Wanted: I am looking for a decent running Zephyr engine, prefer 38 or later. Thank you for listening, Phil Wimbish 38 Zephyr
  2. Hello, I found out Friday, after speaking with my machinist, that my block has some cylinders with thin walls. I do not know how many but definitely several. This is a block from 42-46 with the larger bore. He is reluctant to sleeve this engine at this stage of the game, perhaps because he knows I have another engine which is probably a '38. I do not know the condition of that block yet. I hate to just trash this block, I was wondering if I have any options so I can use this block. I am not opposed to having a large bore engine.The block was sonic tested and he says we are not far from going into the water jacket in some spots. It has already been bored .020 over previously. I would appreciate any other opinions. Thanks for listening! Phil W
  3. Hello to All, I am willing to make a donation, symbolic as I am not a wealthy guy,say $100.00, if that would help the club. Anyone else willing to "step up?" Phil '38 Coupe
  4. Hi Paul, Thanks for letting me know. I hope to see you at the show, your car too!Take care! Phil
  5. Hi Paul, Thanks for posting the note encouraging people to get out for the meet. I am hoping to come up for the day on Saturday. Is the car show at the Westminster hotel or at some other location? What time is the concours and when do the cars start assembling for the show? I ll look forward to seeing you at the show! Thank you and have a safe trip! Phil in Annapolis
  6. Hi Doug! Thanks for the offer of help, I do appreciate it. If I remember correctly your '38 was featured in the way of the Zephyr? If so I'll try to dig up that old issue to refresh my memory. My car is a barn find that has been sitting since 1956. I have done little to it since I purchased it, primarily because I have been sidetracked with two back surgeries since I bought it. Anyway, I want to get something going this year. I believe I have spoken to you about a spare engine that you have. Due to my health issues I don't have the funds to buy a running V12. I m thinking about putting in something else cheaper like an old flathead V8 so that I can drive this thing. I could be busy for quite awhile getting the brakes and everything else ready. I am thinking I will start a thread on finding a nearby machine shop that I can trust to evaluate one of the two V12 engines that I have that are not running. I'll look forward to future conversations! Happy New Year to you! Phil (fellow Hoosier!)
  7. Happy New Year to all! I am resolving to participate more on the Forum and get more involved in the LZOC. I wish I had more Zephyr experience to share, but I do know more now than I did eight years ago when I first joined and the five years since I got my first Lincoln, a '38 Coupe. I am planning on attending the swap meet coming up this month and look forward to meeting other members especially any that live in the Maryland area. As I see the membership declining and aging, I need to try harder to do more and do it in a positive manner. I hope everyone has a healthy, happy New Year. Prosperous would be nice as well!

  8. Hello and Happy New Year to all! Wow, I was surprised to see a post that I made seven years ago reappear! I apologized then for my choice of words for the subject line and do now, Seven Years later. If you read the entirety of my post it makes more sense. Phil
  9. Hello MSSR. I sent you a private message regarding the headlights. I have a couple of questions for you. Thank you! Phil Wimbish
  10. Greetings to all! I am hoping to attend the swap meet in Lancaster this weekend. I was wondering what to expect as far as any events that are going on during the event, besides the swap meet itself. Is it best to go on Fri., or Saturday or spend the night? I have never been to a LZOC event as something always seems to come up in my personal life when this meet takes place. I am hoping to get more involved in the club. My impression that the club could use some younger blood to help carry on the torch. Not that I am that young, my daughter (21) certainly doesnt think so! Last year I was planning on attending and my Dad was going to tag along. He loved to go on my car outings! When I called him the day before we were to go, to confirm our departure time, he sounded so bad I rushed up to his home and took him to the hospital. He never made it back home and passed away on February 21st at 77. I really miss him. I am bringing this up as I do want to get more involved in the club. Knowing now more than ever that....... Time stands still for none of us. Phil Wimbish (6 plus year lurking LZOC member) Annapolis Md 38 Coupe 3 window (found 2.5 years ago in its 50 year barn find glory!)
  11. Hello, I was wondering if the car is still available? If so I am interested and would like to see it. Thank You! Phil in Annapolis
  12. Hello, I was wondering if there is any LZOC participation going on tomorrow in Hershey at the AACA event? I saw on the website calendar that there is a Board meeting taking place. Is that open to the general membership and if so when is it? Will anyone have their Lincoln there or will there be any Lincon swap meets taking place? Thanks and I hope to see some members there on Saturday! Phil Wimbish Annapolils '38 Coupe '57 356 Porsche '82 928 Porsche
  13. Happy Birthday Rolf! I hope this finds you well! Your insight on the forum is missed! Take care! Phil Wimbish '38 Coupe
  14. Greetings! I saw posted in my local paper an ad for a 1948 Lincoln Zephyr Convertible Exc. cond. $32,000. Of course you never see one around here so I did call and the owner and his wife were very gracious. I did check it out and it is very nice. I didnt poke around too much but it is said to be rust free, restored around 15 years ago and runs very well. Med. blue with a blue leather interior, black top w/red piping. I wish I could buy it, but I would have to sell something and you know how that goes. The owners name is Charles and is located in Maryland.Phone number is:410-507-7372, they are nice people. Good luck! Call me if you want me input:410 440 3525 Still looking for a running V12!! !It's amazing how much prettier these cars are in person than in pictures!! Phil Wimbish Annapolis Md '38 LZ coupe PS I thought after the war they were no longer called Zephyrs???? PS I would like to know an idea of value in case I decide to buy it. Please Private message me on that if you have any real sense or recent experience. Also, I have some photos I could post, could someone refresh my memory on how to do that? Photo:
  15. Hello, I was wondering if there is anything Zephyr or auto related to do in Naples while I am here until the 23rd? I wish I could get into the Collier Museum, but I understand it is no longer open to the public. I am also into old Porsches and they have an incredible collection. If anyone has any tips I would appreciate it! Thanks and have a good one! Phil Wimbish '38 3-Window Coupe '57 Porsche 356 A Coupe '82 928 CP
