  1. Another better pic of 1915 Hudson 6-40
  2. 1915 Hudson did not have a removeable cylinder head
  3. I've had excellent success with COKER Bias-Look Radial whitewalls on my 1941 and 1954 Cadillacs. I've driven many, many thousands of miles on them. I understand that another member of the forum has had his issues, but not the case here. The time I had a concern, it was handled by Coker. They do have a Coker Classic Nostalgia Radial with Whitewall in size 550R-16 600R-16 650R-16 700R-16 and 700R-16 Whitewalls range in size from 2-3/4 to 4 inch I agree that "The "radials break wheels" thing is largely nonsense". I've had no problems with the rims on my '41 Cadillac. I did, some years ago, have a series of problems with D.......... honoring the Road Hazzard warranty I paid extra for, and it took several calls and extensive time before it was honored.
  4. So, 22.27% reduction in RPMs at the same MPH , or actually turning only 77.73% as many RPM at same MPH, So, if you had been running at 3,000 RPM Now only turning 2,332 RPM. Surely a more comfortable drive- But remember, your brakes are still 1940 vintage, so passing that exotic Maserati at 85 mph may still not be the best plan? Congrats
  5. Congrats- You'll love driving this Caddy. Sorry I let go of our '70 convertible, but still have the '41 and the '54 convertibles to drive and enjoy
  6. As Matt noted, I've also used Tractor Supply, both for 6V, and for 12V. NAPA here does keep fresh 12V in stock, as well
  7. They may have been deleted in an effort to reduce unnecessary weight, and per the hood ornament center "spike", maybe to impale fewer locals along the way
  8. My Citroen SM- 2.9 (3.0?) Litre Quad- Overhead Cam Maserati V-6 engine (from when Citroen owned Maserati) 5-speed stick and Front wheel drive, with one of the Most aerodynamic bodies ever in a 4-place Sport Touring machine, and then passed it along to "trimacar" in a swap I still believe we both enjoyed ! more disclosure, working on then, including all three of our DS-21 sedans and all three D-21 Station Wagons, parts availability was OK, and working on them wasn't all that difficult, but at times I wished that I were Triple-jointed, and with eyeballs in my fingertips. The SM was actually easier to work on than the DS
  9. I have a couple of older Robinair sniffers, electronic units used to detect freon leaks. The big hex wrenches are like the ones used for the screw-on/off caps over our Brass-Era axle nuts, basically a screw-on hub cap / dust cover
  10. Yes, and a very nice car- Thanks for the pic, as well as for the way you support the touring end of our hobby. See you on the Glidden Tour in Saratoga Springs !
  11. Our 1964 Citroen 2-CV with the smaller 435 cc opposed 2 cylinder engine. Top speed might have been 55 mph, but only downhill with a tailwind, and took all day to get up there, although my wife's 1967 Toyota Crown station wagon with the overhead "6" could never get over 60 mph, even in overdrive.
  12. Members of Lagniappe Chapter AACA caravanned 60 miles from Houma, Louisiana to Audubon Park, New Orleans to view Union Pacific's BIG BOY. Chapter President Whitney Richard furnished video of the train steaming eastward toward the Huey P. Long Bridge, one of the very few rail crossings of the Mississippi River. The BIG BOY was on stationary display today, Saturday, August 21st as part of a multi-city visit. Please click on this link to scroll through Whitney's attached photos per this link, before you look at my attached pics , below. His are much better: https://photos.app.goo.gl/m6Firnz9bGiMpk5C7 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Pacific_4014 I drove the red '88 Corvette, and it was really hot, but a very worthwhile time, having previously visited Steamtown on an AACA Founders Tour, many years ago.
  13. Some folks would do anything for a Buck - ... But alas, Charlie was only in it for the Dough (Doe?)
  14. I sometimes worry about the one on our 1941 Cadillac convertible. It always seems I have to apply too much effort to raise it when opening the hood. When I'm cautious, I'm sometimes accused of "fondling".
  15. Wonderful ! Now we can arrange a summertime visit.
  16. A little Dab-'ll Do Ya', You'll look so debonair, The gals will all pursue Ya' They'll love to run their fingers through your hair.
  17. ... and when he asks What's a Henway, the response is ; "About Two and a Half Pounds"?
  18. Saddly abused, and then ignored for what appears to be an extended time, but could be an interesting project to be saved
  19. Sorry for your car's damage, and for the additional problem caused by the inconsiderate uninsured girlfriend of the neighbor. (Hopefully she is considerate enough to take her other precautions - we don't need more like that around !). Your vintage car insurance (assuming you have J. C. Taylor, Hagerty, etc) likely includes Uninsured Motorist coverage, and depending on your Agreed Value ploicy limits, would compensate for your actual repair costs. It is then up to the insurer to go after the one who caused the damage. My thought is for you to let them handle the issue, and get it done right. We are aware that some folks buy an insurance policy in order to obtain the license plate, and then cancel the insurance - a sad commentary - which is why we keep Uninsured Motorist coverage on modern, as well as vintage and collectable vehicles.
  20. Oldie but goodie, Previously told on tour with a Cadillac towing a Model-A, thanx
  21. When Lloyd was still with us, he completely installed his Borg-Warner ODs in my 1912 Oakland, 1930 Packard, and 1934 Buick 50 Series. They made all the difference and were worth every penny. Driving at a comfortable speed with a 30% reduction in engine RPMs is especially comforting, and with deference to Matt, Ours gave no issues whatsoever in tens of thousands of miles of cross-country, and National Tour driving.
