The Jalopy Journal
Not a fan of the no bumper look. My cars always have all the chrome and stainless they left the factory with. No bumper to me looks unfinished. My...
The good news is every car looks better black. Bad news is most cars don't have a straight enough body to be painted black.
I wouldn't trust my or my familys safety by attaching a seat belt anchor to fiberglass.
It was Kaisers version of a sports car.
If you want to talk about wind noise, try riding in a 41 Willys pick up at highway speed. With that totally flat windshield theres no way you...
Not a car namer. My wife and daughter named my 62 Impala wagon La Bamba.
Don't forget the HAMB secret handshake. If you think someone is a member, come up behind him and grab him by the ass.
Seeems to me 62-67 Chevy Novas may become the next 32 Fords.
My last 327 had a Comp Cams XE262H with no complaints. Had a great sounding idle and like posted pulled all the way up.
This thread contains more Bull Shit then in a Christmas Turkey. Amazing how many posters don't have a clue about cooling systems.
Reminds me of the time I went to a yard sale where there was an incredibly nice stock 34 Ford 5 window in the garage. I asked the man running the...
Sounds like too much in the way of carburetion and not enough motor. I'd slap a 4 barrel on it and I'll bet your problems will be over.
You bet I have an extinguisher handy. Just noticed the one we've had in our pantry for the last 10 years was pointing to empty without ever being...
My 60 Pontiac has a 400 engine and a 2004R transmission out of a Buick Grand National. Super highway cruiser with the TC locked up. [ATTACH][ATTACH]
That Eagle One wax as you dry is good stuff. One time at a car show, Eagle One was giving away small bottles of it. Can't tell you how many...
I use red oxide on the floor pan bottoms just like GM did. Undercoat is the last thing I'd use. Looks nasty and traps moisture.
Anyone remember Crown stations? We used to use their high test all the time.
Too bad you didn't leave a bag of dog shit in the bed along with the drive shaft.
Back in the day a friends mom had a black and white 55 Ford Fairlane four door sedan with blackwall tires that was kind of ratty. He removed the...
Looking good Enloe.
A better title for this thread should be don't buy a foreign anything.
Super nice car that has "the look" just the way it is.. Wheel and tire combo looks good as well. Glad your hanging on to it.
Why use an aluminum radiator when a copper/brass radiator has a better cooling coefficient?
Learned along time ago that when it comes to steering, brakes and cooling to always buy the best.
This thread reminds me of the "Old Wives Tale" of coolant not being in the radiator long enough to be cooled.
So glad to hear about the good news on your lab report.
Thoughts and prayers sent from Kentucky.
Flat black and flake on the roof will look like Shit for sure especially on a 63 Chevy.
Al, I believe you'll be OK at the Quality Inn. Is it on Crittenden Drive?
No longer the LaQuinta. Its now the Best Western Sure Stay. Same hotel, same location with a different name. Not that big of a deal hotels change...
