  1. You will be cruising in that sweet Lincoln before you know it!!!! Good job!!
  2. We are all waiting patiently for the sweet sounds from the V12!!!
  3. Try again tomorrow to get nothing done???? Good Job 👌👍
  4. Another wonderful Crosley Nationals in the books. Good weather, good cars, good food and great people! Fun times for all. The FOR did well getting first place. And the best part is it was the picture vehicle for the FOR trophies.
  5. My FOR is having fun at the Crosley National Meet meeting other FORs!
  6. These week is the National Crosley Meet in Wauseon Ohio. Today was the day to load the FOR and some spare parts so I can head out tonight. Hopefully the weather will hold out and we will have a great time.
  7. Sounds like you have the wrong key. As far as the steering turned, I don't think a '40 vehicle has a locking steering column.
  8. Yes, you must first obtain the 1st Junior to compete for a Senior Award.
  9. I'm thinking more like '70's Mopar????
  10. Was a good day to paint. The Mark III was calling my name saying paint me, so I did. The humidity was about 80 percent, but everything went well. This is a single stage acrylic enamel paint. Has been a while since I have painted with single stage 🤣😆.
  11. Got the proper color for the Lincoln. Valspars paint formula is wrong and the paint man at the auto parts said they don't care, he has called before and they never answered his questions. Got the passenger side painted and now on the driver's side. Also did some stripe work on the wife's car, plum crazy.
  12. Everything is a go for the 2021 Crosley National Meet in Wauseon Ohio on July 8-10. "Homecoming 2021, Together Again". You will see everything Crosley at this meet, and make friends as we are a very friendly bunch. If you would like a ride in a Crosley just ask an owner, you may even get lucky enough to drive one. A few years ago I was talking to a couple that was interested in buying a Crosley roadster and I had my Hotshot there. He asked if they could sit in it and I said sure, when they were in it I told them take it for a drive around the fairgrounds. They were thoroughly shocked but off they went. They were very grateful for the drive and family atmosphere. Activities will start on Monday and continue all week long, but the official days are Thursday, Friday and the show on Saturday.
  13. Thank you!, to all that help, to make these forums the success they are! Here is to another 24+++!!!
  14. You have a $1000.00 in lumber in that stand! LOL Looking good Matt.
  15. I have all the paint codes for everything from Valspar, R/M, DuPont, PPG etc., but when we mixed those codes with the Valspar formula it was the dark purple blue you see on the lower front quarter. OK, I think I got everything worked out. I went to API paint store and they have PPG paints, I told them what I have, I even drove the Lincoln down just in case, and he got out the paint chip book! So much easier with a actual paint chip, compared it to the car and was spot on. He said he would mix up 4oz. and see how close it was and it was good. So instead of running out of paint I got 1/2 gallon and all the necessary additives and now I should be able to mask it off again and paint it the right color. We both feel that the Valspar paint formula was wrong. They were very nice to deal with and he said if I had any problems let him know and he will figure it out. So, we shall see next week after Memorial Day.
  16. Looks like a loose wrist pin. Bad news!
  17. The paint codes for all the years are the same, which means the formulas are the same.
