  1. Hi Everyone, My name’s Erik and I am new to the forum. I figured, what better way to introduce myself than to start an informative, open discussion on the impact and destruction Ethanol has on classic car engines. Unfortunately, running vintage cars on contemporary gasoline containing ethanol can create problems. And, Thanks to regulations from the federal government and the economics of the farming and fuel industries, finding pure 100 percent gasoline is nearly impossible. Your engine can actually be destroyed if the ethanol content in the fuel you use is too high. Ethanol can cause several types of damage to the engine in your vehicle. Such as: Negative impact on gas mileage Fuel phase separation Shorter shelf life Fuel intake components can be damaged Ethanol can cause damage to the fuel pump Are there any other types of damage that can occur in classic cars that’s related to ethanol fuel? Do you know their solutions? Let’s discuss!
  2. Up for sale is a beautifully restored 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood 60S. Numbers matching former show car 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty-Special The Sixty Special was very distinctive and rich-looking this year. Broad ribbed stainless steel fairings decorated the entire rear quarter panel, below the conical flare. Even the fender skirts featured this type of trim, which extended fully forward along the body sills. Sixty Special scripts appeared on the sides of the tailfins and a Fleetwood script nameplate adorned the rear deck lid. Standard equipment included Hydra-Matic, power brakes, power steering, power windows, and fore-and-aft power front seat. PAINT The paint is slick and deep, a show finish. The car was restored in the mid-90's and has been a show car so there is some normal ware. INTERIOR The interior is a combination of original and restored it looks just as it . All of the interior chrome is virtually pit-free and shines like new. The radio has been restored and does work, the power antenna goes up and down like new. Power windows operate like new with all switches. The headliner is in very nice condition and is original, a rare find. Horn works fine, and is loud! Power seat works.

Runs very nice. Transmission works well, with a recent servicing. The engine compartment has all of its original components, with the exception of hoses and belts. It appears to have been painted at some point in the past, but looks correct. Power steering works effortlessly and is quiet. There is a small bit of play in the steering, which seems fairly normal...doesn't effect drivability.
