Re: 1939 Mercury Convertible at auction today!

Like some, I didn't care for the wood graining on the dash or the Buick chrome spears on the skirts. However, would love to see it in my possession, beautiful car.

Re: My 36 Pickup

I have read lots of your posts but don't remember seeing a picture of your 36. I like it, neat looking truck.

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

Are any races like this happening in the PNW? I would love to see some of these live. Or any other events with flatheads?

clutch disc recommendations?

After losing most of the year to other things I'm finally going to replace the clutch on the 48. I have 2 clutch discs to choose from, one from Fort Wayne and then an NOS 48. Any advice on choices?
