  1. The title should have just been "Another Scam" without the question mark. There is no question that is a scam.
  2. I agree it should be in Class 22e. I also agree that you will want to bring factory documentation for the paint colors on those fenders and the use of chrome.
  3. If the original equipment belt was not a serrated belt, the use of a serrated belt should result in a deduction as an inauthentic part in AACA Judging.
  4. The 2020 schedule does not seem to be online yet but checking the latest Antique Automobile magazine, it shows it as April 2-5, 2020.
  5. The best source for 1936-1941 Buick parts such as that is Dave Tacheny. You can best reach him by calling him between 4 and 7 pm Central time at 763-427-3460 on weekdays.
  6. Glad you had a good time at Hershey. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend Hershey this year. I had faith you would have no problem obtaining your First Junior. I am happy to be able to say that I had a very tiny part in your restoration. Any chance you will be at Charlotte to compete for your Senior? If so, I will be happy to get a chance to meet you and see the car in person.
  7. And with a quick glance:!28401!US!-1 And some fake ones...
  8. I only needed 3 and bought 4 because one guy was selling 2 of them together. If someone needs one, I should be able to find the extra one that I bought.
  9. I purchased original used yellow caps for my battery on ebay.
  10. You will receive it in your registration packet. You take a few minutes to fill out the owner's section of the form and leave it for the HPOF team when they evaluate your car.
  11. If the starter spins but does not engage the flywheel, it would typically indicate the starter drive unless the flywheel ring gear is shot. I would pull the starter and take a peek at the flywheel ring gear. If it is OK, I would clean and lubricate or replace the starter drive. While you have the starter off of the car, you can apply 6 volts to the appropriate terminals and see if if it is spinning without the starter drive moving forward as needed to engage the ring gear.
  12. There appear to be a few on ebay. Here is one:
  13. We actually split most of the hard work, but it was easier taking photos when I was operating the winch. I really like my friend's winch. For the last few decades I have typically used a manual come-a-long to load cars on trailers. The electric winch is a LOT more fun to use.
  14. Not exactly driving but I have to share. Yesterday, I accompanied a friend to Winston Salem, NC where we extricated a 1966 Skylark from the basement garage where it was parked 40 years ago in 1979. The extrication was complicated by the garage being perpendicular to the driveway and the disabled Jaguar parked on the far side of the driveway in front of the garage. My friend will have his work cut out on bringing this car back. The moisture in the garage caused the worst mold/mildew in a car interior that I have ever seen. It is an interesting car, equipped with power steering, power windows, and electric windows. The wasps did not appreciate when we got near their nest on top of the left front tire of the Jaguar. It required some creative winching, some hand rolling on wheel dollys, but we got it out and onto the trailer for the four hour ride home.
  15. When the webmaster created the Parts For Sale category and the Cars for Sale category, he did not move all of the old ads into one category or the other. The original For Sale category became the Cars For Sale category. Due to that, whenever someone responds to an old parts for sale ad, that post gets bumped up to the top and appears to be in the wrong forum. There are also times when people simplly post in the wrong category, but the majority of those apparent errors are due to old posts being bumped to the top.
