Re: caveat emptor

I don't believe there is a National V-8 Club "Preservation" award. The 2013 Western Meet hosting club might have done something but it's not a National V-8 Club award. So it's a worthless...

Schram details you didn't know YouTube Video, aviation overtones

Hi Everyone, I didn't make this 5 minute video.

I have been peeking in on David's channel as he redid a C-172 and now is tackling a real basket case of a Cub.

Re: 1935-1936 Ford dash light HELP

Re: Max Musgrove sent me these

You simply can't go wrong with this vendor!

I too sent a box of garbage that looked like it was thrown in front of a snow plow.

Re: 1934 Ford Trouble Starting

Just thinking about your situation.

It would be easy to 'ohm out' each wire, yes? Is a possible weak plug wire something you want to continue to fight or check off the list?
