  1. Well, when you're dealing with cars like post war GM products you can get rid of a parts car and not have to worry about it. But when it comes to a Rickenbacker or a Kissel, the moment you let something go is the moment you'll find you need something. I'm curious as to how many people on this board have even seen a Rickenbacker in person or ridden in one? I've seen 4 Rickenbackers in person, not including the parts car. I know I've only seen a couple Kissels and they were in museums.
  2. That is a great looking car. Good luck with your project.
  3. I have only one parts car. It is a '26 Rickenbacker that was pulled out of a field back in the 70's. The parts car is pretty complete but the wood is pretty much gone. In addition to the parts car I have a spare engine, trans and rear end for my Rickenbacker as well. Oh, and about 6 spare OX2 carbs. With something like a Rickenbacker you can never have too many parts.
  4. I can vouch for the work done by The Flying Dutchman. I had them do the water pump on my Rickenbacker and it was done beautifully. I just wish I was closer so I didn't have to ship a water pump made from unobtanium and risk it getting lost.
  5. These two sites may be of some help. https://www.5speeds.com/muncie2.htm https://nastyz28.com/chevy-manual-transmission-identification.php According to the one site, your trans was made between 65 - 67 based on the main body casting number.
  6. On top of being great looking, don't those light up when the headlights are on?
  7. Whichever Mod merged the two threads, you the real MVP.
  8. Great looking car. I bet the trunk on that Fairlane is longer than the bed of that Ranger in the background.
  9. We had a thread about this very subject awhile back. https://forums.aaca.org/topic/324371-what-was-the-coolestoddest-antique-or-artifact-you-ever-found-in-an-old-car/?tab=comments#comment-1859004
  10. In the first picture, the hood line of the steamer is almost as high as the roof line of the modern hatchback in the background.
  11. The MAC address is tied to the hardware not the sim card. A faraday bag would be your best bet to prevent transmissions. As a side note: if your modern car has a push button start it would behoove you to put your remotes in a faraday bag when you're at home. This will prevent someone from scanning for signals and grabbing the signal your fobs are putting out. A thief may not be able to start your car with the signals they grab but they can open the car without setting off the alarm.
  12. AP Exclusive: Google tracks your movements, like it or not https://apnews.com/article/828aefab64d4411bac257a07c1af0ecb Google Data Collection https://digitalcontentnext.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/DCN-Google-Data-Collection-Paper.pdf
  13. You don't even need an app on your phone to have this information. Hint: your phone is actively listening and reporting ALL data back to various servers whether you know it or not.
  14. Good to see the car will be brought out and see daylight again. Orrin Henderson passed away quite awhile ago so I guess it wasn't one of his cars, but I bet he knew about it. He had a very well known Porsche shop in So Cal and moved to Arizona after retiring but he didn't get into motorcycles, so I guess that rules him out as being the owner as well.
  15. Because the govt and corporations are so well known for never snooping around in data that they are not allowed to, right?
