  1. We're going to be attending the meet in Auburn in May. This will be our first AACA meet, but not our first car meet by a long shot. I was just wondering what to expect.
  2. Matt, thanks for the good info.
  3. I just bought a ‘65 Chevy Biscayne. It’s been heavily modified - 454 engine, lowered, wider than stock tires. When I hit a dip in the road and the suspension compresses, it goes every way but straight on the rebound. It’s very squirrelly. I didn’t even get it on the highway to see how it tracks. I’m afraid to at this point. I know I need to try to find an old school alignment guy who can do more than align it t to specs, but I’m not well versed in alignment and suspension. Any thoughts on what to look for so I can not appear to be an idiot?
  4. I’m sure it wasn’t. It was built about 10 years ago and I bought it from a friend of the guy that built it.
  5. I just bought a '65 Biscayne, and one of the front park lamp bulbs is frozen in the socket. What's the best way to get it out?
  6. I bought a '96 Impala SS about 10 years ago, in the teal color. It was a great car to drive, but I quickly found out it was going to be a money pit and sold it.
  7. I was a deputy sheriff in the '70s and '80s, and of all the patrol cars I drove, the square body Caprice was my favorite. I recently ran across this 1988 Caprice cop car on eBay. It has never been in police service. It was sold new to a provider of police equipment who used it as a demo car. The subsequent owners used it in parades. The last owner was the police chief in a small town in Alabama, and he had it marked with a blue roof beacon and department decals. All the police equipment works. Since I was a former LEO, he agreed to sell it to me with all the police equipment intact. The lights
  8. I had a friend in high school who was firmly convinced that you could order any car of any year, and better yet, pay the price for it when it was new. For example, (this taking place in 1971), he believed you could order a ‘57 Chevy Bel Air to your liking and pay the price it was in 1957. Even though my dad was an Oldsmobile dealer and I knew better, I could not convince him otherwise. Under this scenario, what would you order? Ask me tomorrow and my answer might be different, but today it would be: 1971 Olds 442 coupe (1971 for the best combo of grille and taillights) V
  9. The full-width rubber floor mat in my Toronado is in excellent condition and I would like to keep it that way. What’s the best product to keep it supple without making it slick or slippery?
  10. Well, I guess you wouldn't like most of my cars. Wheels are a great way to personalize a car without doing any irreversible damage and are easily changed back to stock. You didn't have any interest in the car, so why even bring it up?
  11. Is it OK to put leads here? This is not my car, but it's a knockout. I'd own it in a heartbeat if I had a place for it. It sure would be nice to see it go to to a good home. Here's the link from one of the Oldsmobile forums: 1963 Starfire
  12. As happens in this hobby, I have more cars than I have storage space, so I need to sell my '74 LeSabre. It's a gorgeous car with only 13,000 actual miles. As you can see in the dealer bill of sale shown below, this is a 455 car with lots of options. It has had a high-quality repaint that is in excellent condition with no chips, scratches, rock chips or dings. The paint looks like it rolled off the assembly line yesterday. The lower rocker panel moldings look like new with only minimal wear. The top looks very nice, with no rips or tears, and has new cables. The hard parade boot (with stor
