I always liked the dashboard of Miss Elegance. Saw it first in Popular Mechanics, April 1953
I run a 455 Oldsmobile, .030" over. 461 cu. in.
My 50 is at the upholstery shop.
Stupid auto correct. I meant taildragger.
I have always liked Nick Matranga's 40 Merc. But, I saw a tail drag her 34 Ford that looked really cool.
I am going with my sons. 58 Impala, and a 63 Riviera.
My uncle used to say, this car can stop on a dime with nine cents change.
I have the one my dad taught me to use when I was just a little kid. Also taught my two boys how to use it.
455 Olds, .030 over, 10:1 Forged TRW pistons.
I saw a Pierce Arrow at French Lake Auto Parts quite a few years ago.
Yes, I am going. Been there every year since about 1984. I will have the 4 door '50 Merc. My 2 door custom Merc isn't ready yet. Been helping...
Yes, got a 1963 Oldsmobile with a 394 and roto hydramatic,(slim jim, I think they called them. It had 136,000 miles on it, put 200 miles on it...
I'm definitely going next year.
I have my Dad's old manual bead breaker and tire irons. He taught me how to use it when I was a kid. But, an air powered machine would sure be nice.
