Re: Mark Kirby/MotorCity Flathead's

I had dealings with Mark a number years ago. He was truly a man of his word. You cannot ask for more than that from a person. RIP

Re: Mack hills bed for a 34

I had exactly the opposite experience from 32phil on the shorty '32 bed I bought from Mack. This was maybe ten years ago though if that may make a difference. But the shipping rate was reasonable,...

Re: '34 Pickup Windshield Rattle

Yes, I had a rattle in my '32 pickup that I thought was the windshield and, like you say, turned out to be a door rattling.

Re: Mart's Project Update 21/01. 32 Sedan Pt. 25. 59 Flatty Pt. 19.

Denny, the information I have is that the rear shoes are 10"X 1 3/4" whereas the fronts are 10" X 2". I had a '49 years ago but I'm afraid I can't remember now how close they were. I am trying to do...

Re: What Gasoline that has NO ethanol in it?

I don't know how it is in your area but I'm paying 25 to 30 cents more per gallon in my area for non-ethanol gas. How about you guys?

Re: Langhorne Sportsman Race circa 1951
