Re: Not to say it wont happen again tomorrow

I'm going through this same scenario. It sure takes the fun out of having an antique car, the junk Chinese crap coming in here.

Re: Vanderbrink Regehr Auction

Wow that guy had some neat stuff.

Judging by the pre-bidding, and some of the dollar amounts, I'd say the antique car hobby is alive and well and it 'tain't gonna go belly up' any time soon:o

Re: What is this attached to the carb on 1936 Ford

If I wanted a heater I think I would go the hot water route. Plus it would help cool that flathead a bit more. They need all the help they can get to stay cool.

Re: Anybody else quit Ebay because of fees and tax?

I'm not on FB but a number of my friends, are.

They all buy and sell via that today, none of them do E-Bay for the reasons mentioned. They all have said that they had had enough.

Re: 31 tires

Agree. That will be my next set. Plus they are a good looking tire to boot.

Others may be cheaper but the Goodyears just have 'the look'.

Those guys did a really nice job on the car! They started out with a pretty rough one. Skilled indeed.

Very true, we went through this years ago in Business Law classes at a local college I was attending and which was taught by an Attorney. He was very specific about what you just said. Thank you!
