They may have increased in price some, but they are still more affordable than the older coupes or even a lot of the newer ones. I had to have...
Wow, a build thread! You don't see many of those anymore it seems.
I like it. But I think you need to move the rear of the top closer to the...
Yeah, unless you have a belly like mine. On my Model A truck, the wheel to door was fine, but the wheel to belly had a definite clearance...
Yep, just bought this one last year because it was the year I was born. I had to have a car to put my 1948 Alabama tag on!
Not much help, but I remember seeing early Vette steering wheels used in hot rods back in the 1960s Hot Rod magazines. So they were used, but just...
Not sure what you are asking but 5 on 4 1/2 are common Ford wheels. 1950s-60s Chevy (GM) is 5 on 4 3/4 bolt circle.
I just saw this on the hamb facebook page:
Yeah, I have run into that too. Sometimes I wonder if people are really that dumb or are they just messin' with you. Remember, if average...
I think I bought some from Mac's Antique parts if memory serves me right.

Old Moon valve covers on a W block Chevy.
I used to do that a lot in the military. Lost a stripe too.
I would use Safeway Dried Tar Remover.
This may have been mentioned before, but eyeglasses will NOT keep chips and trash out of your eyes. In fact, I think they attract them. After...
Offer to cover it up for him. At least it will be in better condition when the estate sale happens.
I think I have learned that if I don't get them running in over 30 years that I probably will never do it, so I sell them.
I think we need a poll.......OK, who here has NOT done what is in their mind a stupid thing when working on their car?
I can't count the number of times I have had to ream stuff out with Emory paper. Takes time but sure is a lot cheaper than a reamer, especially...
