The Jalopy Journal
Not an easy car to chop, well done.
Mine is in a battery box behind and below the seat in the roadster. It's a tight fit and I have to trim off the hold down tabs molded on the side...
Thanks Danny, 'preciate that.
I prefer mine with the hood on. I will take it off at shows and stuff if somebody wants to see the flathead but I really don't like it...
Let's see if this works. This is from a three year old thread, a brief video of me and my grandson on the way home from a local cruise in....
I found a '62 Falcon on Craig's list and paid too much for it. The longest drive I ever made it that car was the first one bringing it home from...
The 2005 L.A. Roadster Show. Growing up in New Jersey and reading about the LA Roadster Show in the pages of R&C since the '60's made it a show I...
. . . in front of my friend's '34 Dodge Humpback.
Several years ago I was working in the parts department of a large Ford dealership. All of our delivery trucks were no frills, base model F-150s....
Ah, I'm just a quiet kinda guy. :)
This post made me go look at my profile to see when I joined. I'm two years behind you. Glad to say that I have met you in person a couple of...
Yea, I think that's where I'm at. :)
So, you don't recommend any of the commercial "break in" oils like those from Joe Gibbs Driven or others?
That's where I'm at right now, leaving everything boxed up and waiting until the car is ready for it before I assemble anything. I'm just anxious...
It's a short block right now but it may need to wait awhile once it's a complete engine.
I'm going to build a 289 Ford for an OT project. Still in the parts gathering phase right now but have a couple of questions. How long will...
I bought my first issue of Hot Rod in 1961 and still have it and every issue since. My interests are broader than just traditional stuff so I...
It's that clean because it's just been completed. I haven't started working on anything in there yet. :D
You mean the '47? Sold it last spring, it now lives in Australia.
We finally got the opportunity to turn our no longer needed Mother-in-law apartment into additional garage space.
This is a scene I created for an HO model railroad I'm working on.
No, my preference would be completely polished with no color at all.
I'd like to polish them myself.
Not weird at all, lots of people like 'em. I would like 'em too on the right engine/engine compartment colors. I just see what I'm building as...
Factory finish, Danny.
These are the valve covers I'd like to polish.
That's why I'm thinking about doing this. I tried to find these in a polished finish but black wrinkle was the only way they were available. I'd...
Yep, watching a TV commercial for Dustless Blasting is what got me thinking about this. :)
Does anybody know if it's possible to remove black wrinkle finish from aluminum valve covers?
