Once again the problem was, someone looking for a problem when there isn't one. This all started with a clean plug. Once again the start the damn...
Peel out. (burn rubber)
Peel off. (leave, go off on your own.)
My 36 Chev wouldn't peel out, but there was the smell of burning rubber in the...
You are going to have a great ride. A razor blade will take off a lot of paint with no damage to anything else. No scuff marks on the metal etc.
Well, you're dead on your back, your tits up. I've known this saying for near 70 years.
The slopes seemed to be found tits up most of the time.
Or "balls on."
Some one earlier referred to a straight trans. We always said "straight stick."
Has "I got my foot in the carb" for " I got it...
When you talked of needing lead, I thought you had too much advance and needed some tetra-ethel to cure the knock.
How about; "that engine is...
New rings and a valve job can make all the difference.
No problem. But you already have a thread on your chop: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/34-ford-sedan-build.1030205/#post-11662012...
Small parts are what I seem to collect. Disk brake conversions etc. Selling stuff is too much of a hassel. I give it away or throw it away. It...
Thank you for posting your chop, but you should have created a build thread and posted a link. I am sure everyone who sees your build will agree...
We called it doing the Chicken. What ever you call it, no one could do it but Chuck. When ever I saw him, on stage a few times and in the movies,...
I just assumed he had a VW engine and trans axle in it. My VW looked like that when I filled it with kids and beat the loop. [ hope I don't have...
Here's a 51 Buick chop. Lot's of work.
The top picture seems to show it is well used. Ignition keys are the only ones I can think of that show a lot of use.
I do not like quad head lights on older vehicles. It has seldom been done in good taste. But I like them on this truck. A first for me.
That picture is before the Beatles. Note the pointy tits. Girls didn't have pointy tits in the 60's.
I'm thinking that is a booster. I think I have one laying around someplace.
Often, replacement seats do not feel as "right" as the originals as far as orientation to the steering wheel, etc. I always tried to use stock seats.
I just had my girl friend hold the battery on her lap. I miss her.
Just found this thread and went through the whole thing in one sitting.
I can't believe it.
I read it, I looked at the pictures,
Looks great. You should name it "From Russia With Love" That's the title of an old James Bond agent 007 film/
Great thread! Just found it. Was hoping for some pictures of how you went about modifing the 17 inch wheels.
I hated the Maverick my dad bought. Not so bad now. If I had a pacer, I'd drive it. Not because there is anything nice about it. Just a quircky car.
31 Olds 5 window
Here is a 48 Cad fast back chop with a massive build thread
That headlight treatment is the most distracting thing about this car. I think changing them back would be major. There was a lot of work done to...
I must add that you should not count that much on the Sears warrenty. I remember that years ago my then wife bought 3 or 4 sets of sheets from...
