Re: Scum HAMB Hot Rodder Trying to Save a Truly Wasted Roadster...on YouTube!

Casey, I really did not see where your video was a 'commercial' as in advertisement for a video. When I did initially read the title, I must confess that it did seem like language that is generally...

Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

I actually witnessed something like that at Hershey one year where evidently the Buyer played some kind of song & dance to the Seller, and I guess the Seller agreed to it. Then when the cash was...

Re: 31 Roadster pickup cab swap to Truck cab

I may know of a '31 CC P/U body and doors for sale. The body I know has been painted Vermilion Red, but not sure about the doors. I'm sure the gas tank has not been painted. Is this something you...

Re: Ford engines in rail vehicles

Bruce, my Fairmont A5 came with a 36hp engine and was rated to carry 260 men on 13 trailers. It was rated to pull 3000 pounds up a 2% grade. The limiting factor for mine is wheel traction. The...

Re: Changes in vendors offering distributor rebuilds

Frank, Russ' comment in post #8 hits the nail on the head for most commercial rebuilders. As for why not weld into the groove? You can surely do that however that is a lot of work being that it is...

Re: Changes in vendors offering distributor rebuilds

Don, you are spot-on in saying that. It used to be that hobbyists were 'restorers' on at least some level. Today, even parts replacement on a Model-A challenges the skillset of some hobbyists. It...

Re: Model A coupe value

To some folks, the paint won't be an issue. To others, that is a red flag.

Lacquer paint is not the issue. I can show you many original cars that were painted with lacquer at the factory and...

Re: Model A coupe value

I guess I don't understand. How can a car be in "good condition" yet need Paint and Upholstery?

If you break down the value of a car by 3 major areas (Mechanical, Paint, & Trim) it would seem...

Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

Maybe post what parts you are looking for with the hope that someone sees it and brings that item to the swap meet.

Re: Engle's A & T Parts

Thanks Jeff, and kinda interesting. None of those fixtures would likely help anyone else without those dies. I too lost some items that I had loaned to Dale & Steve that were never returned to me.

Reading between the lines Colin, are you going with the intention of buying a Phaeton, or just some random parts?

Re: Swap meet etiquette / Luray

I think this Cash vs. checks/e-pay/etc. part is ignorant, -at least from my vantage point as a vendor.

Re: Cleaning a gas tank

Take a sample of the brown sediment by rubbing your finger. Then determine if the sediment is organic or rust. If rust, my prediction is this is one of many areas that has rust forming. If so, the...
