  1. Hello, my name is Harry Schneider and I'd like to let you all know about the new "Vancity Plating". I have worked in the chrome plating business for over 28 years and have loved every minute of it. But, I always found myself in conflict with other shops ideas of quality. Being that I wanted to do the absolute best quality chrome, it seemed everyone else just wanted to get it out the door and get paid for it! So, because of their lack of quality, I found myself moving from shop to shop in search of one that felt the same as me. Seems that there isn't one. Then I teamed up with 2 incredible craftsmen, and together, we've opened Vancity Plating. I can finally do it my way and to my ultra high standards! We will be catering to, high-end custom car/bike builders, restorers, and those backyard builders, that are looking for the best quality chrome plating or polishing for their cherished rides! We take our work very seriously and love what we do, and it shows in our final product, if your not happy, we're not happy!! Our welder holds 14 welding tickets and is an absolute master at what he does, plus we have the ability to fabricate things like a rotted out grill, replacing bad areas with new metal giving our customer back an unbelievable finished product! We will become an important part of the hotrod, custom, restoration culture, not just another vendor there to just take your money. We are all dedicated to the same thing, the best product possible, anywhere,period!! All we are asking at first, is to just give us one chance to prove to you that we are the only chrome plating shop you will ever use again, this I truly believe we will do for you. We are using the latest, state of the art, environmentally friendly plating system and are ready to meet the future standards which will have many other shops struggling when new environmental regulations are enforced. At Vancity Plating, we believe in hard work, so we can offer a quick turn around time along with Vancity's standard of quality. Vancity Plating will stand out amongst all it's competitors due to hard work, attention to detail, caring, the passion we have for the auto/bike industry and most of all, making our customers happy. Thank you, if you have any comments or questions, please contact the numbers below or feel free to contact me personally, or drop by the shop, and lets discuss your next project and see how Vancity Plating can help you get it to that next level! Thanks Again, hope to see or hear from you soon! Harry Schneider Vancity Plating #105-2544 Douglas Road Burnaby B.C.

  3. Quick Back Story: My friend Noah (1967 Ford Mustang, 289, 3SPD Auto) and I (1978 Datsun 280Z, L28 straight 6, 5 SPD Manual) ; both bought our cars at age 15. These are our first cars . They are both pretty much original in every aspect. The Mustang still has: original 289 and 3SPD trans, seats, head liner, body. The Datsun still has: origianl l28 and 5SPD trans, seats, head liner, paint, whole road side kit & body. (Thoughs are just the importaint things to me). Now what's the main differences? Well for starters the Datsun is of course foreign. Made in Japan and modern day Nissan. The Mustang is carbuerated, Datsun is EFI. Mustang has drums all the way around, Datsun has disc in front and drums in back. Other than that I can only think of subtle differences, because they are 11 years apart; It would be easier to compare a 240z to a Mustang. So what's the problem? Car rascism. Car rascism is the problem. It sounds funny (which to me it is), but I love all old cars. I think it would just be amazing if all car lovers wether you have a foreign car (to the USA) or a USA made car, can just get along! It was kind of sucky bringing my Datsun to a company where the guy said he works on any classic car; And having him said he won't look at it because it's foreign. What's more ironic is I called the day before and said it was a Datsun and the guy said "Oh sure bring it on up here and we will work on it!" Then when I called the next day a different guy answered and said they won't work on foreign classic cars. As I said before I feel as though the classic car community would be much larger and more creative if everyone accepted eachothers own unique taste in their classic car. Let's be honest if you are reading this you probably have a thing for classic cars; You would'nt want anyone to dis your beauty and your pride and joy! Everyone has a different opinion understandable. But everyone can agree on one thing here. We love classic cars and the history behind them! With all of that said I'm curious what you guys think the about the situation. Here's a video of the Mustang & Datsun reving along with some pictures

Own the rarest of the famous “3 P’s- Packard, Pierce Arrow & Peerless” Looks and Runs Great! Ready to Tour and Show! Peerless is the rarest in the famous “3 P’s” Packard, Pierce-Arrow and Peerless of the late 20”s –early 30’s. Peerless was manufactured from 1900-1931 in Cleveland Ohio. Peerless did not go out of business with the looming Great Depression, instead the Board of Directors chose to stop manufacturing cars, and changed the manufacturing plant from building cars to brewing beer as an American franchise for Carling Black Label Beer. With the recent repeal of Prohibition, it was considered a wise business decision at the time. The Peerless motorcars sold in 1932 were actually inventory manufactured in 1931. The only true production car of 1932 was the one V16 aluminum bodied Peerless now on display in Crawford Aviation and Auto Museum, Ohio.

  7. This car is way cooler than the Batmobile every was. This is the coolest looking car I've ever seen in my opinion!
  8. This car has been sold. Unfortunately I don't see a way to delete the posting. http://youtu.be/y2lErLBvM3g This 22,000 mile original mile car has won six (6) national awards, 4 from the AACA & 2 from the BCA. The car is flawless and would probably show up the new cars if it were in a showroom. It's been stored in a climate controlled garage since new and was featured in a December, 2012 article in the Buick Bugle. There is nothing wrong with this car, not even a single leak. I'm selling it to thin the herd. This is an exceptional opportunity for the collector interested in the 70's. The photo with trophies below is 2 years old; there are now about 50 trophies and everyone is for 1st place, even when judged with other national winners. This car never got 2nd or 3rd place. $12,000. It's hardly ever driven yet runs like new because it's very well taken care of. /Carlo & Joanne 315-469-6515 carlobasta@yahoo.com

  11. I am from Bettendorf High school and I am doing a project which requires me to speak with a delorean owner about some basic information on the car. P.s. I didn't see a delorean thread
  12. I have a 1970 C10 Longbed Fleetside pickup truck that used to belong to my grandfather. I need to sell it because I need some cash and I am trying to determine how much it is worth. I have done some searches online and found prices from $8,000 to $50,000. This truck needs a lot of work so I know I am on the very low end but I do want to get as much as I can for it without being unrealistic in my expectations. I used to drive it once or twice a month but about 2 years ago I just parked it and I have not driven it since. It ran fine the last time I did drive it. It has a straight 6 engine with three speed shifter in the steering column. There is also significant rust in the body which would have to be repaired to get it into great shape. Everything on the truck is actually original equipment, including the drum brakes all around. (not sure if that is good or not). Considering the fact that I have not run it in almost 2 years, I am sure that the gas in the tank is bad and who knows how much work would be needed on the engine to get it in top running condition. Based on all of this, can someone give me a ballpark on what you think I should use as a staring point when setting an asking price? Thanks Frank

The top three in price and status where called the three P’s: Packard, Pierce Arrow and Peerless. Peerless Motor Cars (Cleveland, Ohio 1900-1931) was the first company to adopt what would become the standard of automobile design, a front mounted engine driving the rear wheels through a solid drive shaft. Barney Oldfield shattered world speed records with the Peerless “Green Dragon” Many collectors believe the Peerless motorcars to be some of the finest automobiles built in the USA in the 1920’s renowned for their high performance and stylish luxury. However, Peerless is the rarest and hardest to find of the “three P’s” as it ceased production in 1932. In 1933, ownership and management of Peerless organized the Carling Brewing Co. USA, just after Congress repealed Prohibition, and began production of the famous Carling Black Label Beer in the old Peerless factory. Other Peerless “Firsts” - Peerless was the first company to successfully use a flyball governor to maintain speeds. - They set a 1,000-mile endurance record and the fastest time ever in the Mt. Washington hill climb in New Hampshire. - Peerless was the first to use of aluminum in their side-entrance tonneau along with being the first closed formal body in American production. - Peerless was one of the first companies to use electric lighting. They used a Gray & Davis system as early as 1910 and then upgrading in 1913 to a single voltage Gray & Davis system which now included an electric starter.

  20. Hey fellow Buick lovers, Im proud to say I own a 1955 special with 80k on her and im the 3rd owner now. It has been a load of fun learning and working on it. In 1 day I got her running after 25 plus years of being stored in the garage. I did some research on non detergent oil also lead additive for the gas, put a new battery in after fresh fluids and she fired right up. Now after a few times around the block the clutch is slipping really bad. Do they make clutch kits for the 3 speed manual. I find kits but I have no clue the size or exactly what I need. And please feel free to give tips, advance or any thing I should check into to make this car right again. I plan to restore her and try to keep almost everything original. May add a radio but other than that I love it the way it is. Thanks for the help.
  21. Dear Buick fans or any classic car lover, I am new to the classic's but knew id own one soon after seeing the special in movies like this boys life and dont tell mom the babysitter is dead. I finally just bought a 1955 Buick special 3 speed on the column with 80k miles on it. Since im in my 20s this older technology on this car is like my grandparents with my ipod, definitely takes reading and just getting under the hood. After not running for 25yrs I changed the battery, drained all fluids, bought new non detergent oil and an oil canister filter, put lead addictive in the gas & she fired right up. Issue 1.) Now I can feel the clutch is slipping badly and needs to be replaced. The issue im having is the correct parts and how to do it. I cant find a clutch kit for sale ( I can but not sure what size ) nor do I know the best way to change it. Ive seen pull the motor or some tube and rear end forum. Issue 2.) Now it wont start. Which I think im going to buy a new starter and solenoid so that takes 2 of the maybes gone. I heard the relay or switch by the carb and manifold can go bad but rare. The motor wont even turn over with a new battery but everything comes on so I think its one of those I listed but any info is much appreciated. Thanks for your time & help : )
  22. What do you see as the greatest threat to the continuation to the vintage car hobby? Everyone has thought at one time or another about the future of collecting, restoring, and driving vintage cars and I would like to open a discussion about this. My opinion is the lack of interest among people my age (25) along with the cost to get into the hobby being the biggest problems. This is why. I have been into the vintage car hobby since I was 16. I am considered a eccentric by my friends for it to. I went to McPherson college for auto restoration only to find out I couldn't afford it, Yet I still spend all my money just trying to restore 1 car myself (1959 Buick 2 door). I have owned mostly GM 1954-1959 vintage and take great pride in driving my classics daily and showing my friends WHY post war cars kick a##. I see alot of my buddies interested but not willing to shell out the same amount of money for a car they can buy a house for. I still have about 25 to 30 grand to go before its finished plus all the time I have to put into it. The hobby has gotten so picky over the years that a good restoration 30 years ago would be mediocre at best now. Having owned 'restored' cars before to save money I found out people cut to many corners. That is why I am doing a nut and bolt restoration on my B59 (so I know it was done right). I noticed also that most car clubs I am a member of (BCA and 59 Division included) that I am the only or one of the only 'young' guys in it. So I have to 'prove' myself to be considered more then just a fan even though I have worked on, repaired, and partially restored cars from a 1954 Chevrolet with the Babbitt L6 to the 1959 Buicks. In that regard it seems that this hobby is centered around the older, wealthier generations thus making it uninviting to people my age to get involved. Is There a solution? This hobby has attracted many people from all walks of life but few young guys. It seems this hobby is in cruise control with nobody at the wheel to direct this hobby to address problems and threats to it. For example. When was the last time you saw an ad on TV promoting the restoration of vintage cars (not specific cars like mustangs but vintage in general) or trying to recruit new members? That alone can bring this hobby to the public mind and allow a influx of new membership not seen in decades.
