  1. I remember when I was 16 years old, my dad has a 50 Olds 88 coupe, He let me and a friend take it for a spin around town, it was pretty fast! it was one of my favorite driving memories, I also remember vividly when I was very young probably 6 or 7, a guy in our neighborhood driving around a 37 Chev coupe hot rod, it was metallic dark brown, mag wheels and black diamond tuck Naugahyde covered running boards, I wish I knew if it still exists.

  2. Can anyone identify this car Thanks!! Darren
  3. If you take a look at Tim Cotter's book "The Corvette in the Barn" it also has the story of these cars.
  4. I believe they are filled with a gel type acid, that is why you in place them in any position even upside down, I had a friend that told me a tip on optima batteries, if they act like they have a dead cell you can set then upside down for a few days then charge them, then they sometimes come back around, maybe it allows the gel to re coat the plates inside them?? I have one in my motor home that this was done to, give it a try!
  5. 10 year ago I bought two 32 for car grills at a local wrecking yard for 35 bucks, I wish that wrecking yard was still around!!
  6. just some food for thought, two and a half years ago my father an avid classic car collector/restorer and industrial plumber died from mesothelioma, asbestos is not something to be taken lightly. was it from his job or the exposure from his old cars?? it is unknown, but I can personally attest it is not an easy was to go, be careful, take reasonable precautions, not everyone who is exposed, will get mesothelioma, but why take the risk.
