Re: New car in the garage

I would NOT have my car parked so close to those items you have stored up on the side wall cross beam!! Unless you have them secured with cables, even though, too close for comfort.

Re: Why are there so many more 1930 grill shells than 1931s?

Early '28 shells had bigger holes for the hood welting. It weaved in and out of the holes like the Model T.

All others had the welting rivetted to the shell.
