Action report: there is NO governor installed. There's a huge screw in plug where the governor would be, on top of the right side. That means the switch activating the solenoid will work at all time,...

Re: Original distributor body and cap

I once read a sign at a coffee shop reading: we serve French Toast anytime. So I ordered mine during the French Revolution!

Re: Seat Covers to cover Upholstery

Just a couple weeks ago, at the last Pomona Swap meet, I met a guy who had a van full of NOS seat covers in various colors and fabrics. He explained that they would fit a front and a rear seat bench...

Re: Why Fiber Timing Gears

Re: Fat Guy's Only!!! Roadster

Not sure what your problem is. I'm 6'6", 250lbs, shoe size 13. I step into my car, upright, then bend a bit down, have my right hand on the folded convertible top, turn 90 degrees to the left, and...

Re: What do you make of this car?

This car is as far away from "mint" condition as Earth from the nearest galaxy. I do like the leather and the wood floors though . . .

Re: 1929 Special Coupe leg room

If the Special Coupe is anything like the Roadster, you can get about 2-1/2 inches on top of the back seat just by removing the package shelf. More importantly would be to get more room on the bottom...

Re: 1930 California YOM Plates

That would be tempering with an official document, and if a D.A. really feels like it, he'd call it document fraud. Probably not such a good idea, totally ignoring that it would destroy a set of...
