Re: Model A truck tailgate hinges Macs was no help.

Just had to comment about the "West coast dock strike" excuse. That was settled two months ago and all the backlog freight has been shipped.

That was just someone's BS excuse.

Re: NY Times on the demise of the automotive cult

I can't say I like the idea, but 100 years from now there will probably be as many cars at the house as there are horses now. 100 years ago I expect no one could envision a world without horses.

Re: manifold washers

So what's all this about manifold washers? Will my manifold get dirty without one? Is it a dry cleaning process, or is there a jug of soap and water included?

Vacum or electric?:D
