  1. I gave it a good washing under the hood and got rid of the critter nests. Have yet to put a battery in it and see if it even cranks. Thanks for the info on the Super charger Barney. I'll be sure to check it. My better other half fell and broke her hip joint and was in the hospital and rehab so that was taking up quite a bit of my time these last weeks. She is home now and getting around with a walker.
  2. OK. Was parked because the owners wife decided she needed a 4WD vehicle to go skiing up in the mountains with. Was driven for a while by an employee of the company that my friend owned. (Farm machinery sales and service.) Has been sitting since 2009. A decade dormant looking at the registration.
  3. What happened to Dexron and Dexron II??? Guess I is old enough to remember when.... Dandy Dave!
  4. At least another...
  5. Fix, or part out??? That is the question.
  6. They even ate the plug wires.
  7. Micky N Minny done do'ed it!
  8. Why here it comes, what everyone likes. Photographs…. Keep in mind that the price was really right!!!
  9. Oh it is on the trailer just outside the door as of today. Although I must say I found it has an awful bad case of mousitis.
  10. Oh this deal is getting better all the time. 😉
  11. Yeah, If nothing else the price is really right.
  12. Say folks, while working on an electric golf cart for a friend I ran across a 1998 Buick Riviera. I told him I'm partial to older Buicks and he said I could have that one free for the taking. It was his wife car and has been sitting for a while. He said it is a turbo model. I'll have to go get it and post some photos in a day or two. Wondering what you folks think about that model and year?
  13. 1915 was the last year for having an engine cast in pairs. It is not 1915. If memory serves me correctly Buick built only the 6 Cylinder around 16 and 17 and then started building a lighter 4 again around 1918 for several years. Those seats don't belong on it. Dandy Dave!
  14. Nice Wagon. Dandy Dave!
  15. Oh. Just south of Keene. In the town of Swanzey. The old gent that had it could get in it. But could not get out after he sat down in the big old low rider seat.
  16. Ohh Ohh… It is a Motorsorusus...Rare and before the days of the dinosorususes.
  17. What a Boat, a gas guzzling, over weight, yacht from the days before the energy embargo of 73. A piece of the Detroit Iron Mountain of yesteryear. I'm sure you Dad would love it being a Ford man himself.
  18. So, Could not help myself. Bought a 1971 Ford LTD Rag Top and have been working a few bugs out of it. Nothing is in full bloom here quite yet but it is not far away. There was still piles of snow over in New Hampshire where I picked up the car and then brought it back the Hudson Valley.
  19. And so it goes in the not so great north east.
  20. Larry, I had more fun with that White last year at car shows than I have had with anything else in a while. So many people said it was the most interesting thing they have see in a long time at a show. Picked up a couple of bushel baskets full of trophies with that rusty old truck. Vehicle that was the most fun, Show favorite, and so on. Got at least one at every show. Sometimes two for that rusty old Hillbilly truck that runs like a clock. Dandy Dave!
  21. Glad to hear that it is 0.2% better. That Pontiac is a lot harder to get pieces for. Model A parts are everywhere. I found leads to several different motors and the week isn't even up yet. Dandy Dave.
  22. LOL. Yeah, But nothing draws a crowd like that hillbilly White. Had it at Mills Mansion this past fall. Was a little on the cool side and the crowd was a little light. I let it sit and Idle for most of the day. A friend was kind enough to take a photo from a distance. All the shiny stuff not many were looking at, but around that early White truck there was a crowd of 20 to 40 all day. The 1930 Rolls Royce 20/25 that I finally got up and running is right in the lower center of the photo. It is easy to spot the White. Just look for the crowd. 😉 Like my pal Mike said when he sent this photo, Like flies on poop. 😜
