The Jalopy Journal
@mctim64 I've been meaning to ask. What's the overall plan for this new roadster? Or is it a surprise?
Big news for me this month is that my straight-through Holley NH, high-volume intake, and Z head get delivered today!
Came by the HAMB to put up a want ad and realized I should probably ask here too. I'm looking for a set of "Rocky Mountain" brakes for a Ford...
Pretty nifty Cragar posted by AHRF today.
That's a good way to lose via holeshot.
Ah, I forgot, @David Mazza posted a couple pictures from our trip.
I think you're right, practice is what I'm really lacking. If I just sat down once a week and spent an evening soldering together junk pieces of...
I just saw it a few months ago at Lang's. They're picking away at it. I believe the engine was at the machine shop when I was there.
Well, color me intrigued. I can read a wiring diagram just great, but I SUCK at soldering. What are the tools you use?
An exhaust-pressurized fuel tank was original equipment on the 1912 Oldsmobile Autocrat.
I agree, that is a handsome-looking top.
This photo just came up on Hemmings.
This is the fella. I talked to him for quite a while. The whole thing was a blast! Sorry I missed meeting you @hillbilly4008 !
What history do you have on those photos, hillbilly? I'd love to have some context!
Awesome! Thanks again, @Blownfuel
Can you describe or illustrate how you plan to do that?
Every time I see that one I think it's Buster Keaton, then I remember it's an actual race.
The story goes, as related by Dean Batchelor, that Estes was arrested and the judge ordered the car sold.
It's probably in a deep basement...
Can you point out where you are seeing that? Looking closely at the photo, I see a cylinder above the head that I don't recognize, but I kinda...
The Schjeldahl book discusses direct-mounting a two-barrel carburetor to the log intake. I'm sure you could block off the original carburetor hole...
Hey man, apologize to Gabby Garrison and Bob Wilcox, not me! ;)
More like 1934, though certainly plenty of examples were found past that date...
I agree with @guitarguy
Gow was a term that generally meant "hot rod" in the pre-war era, but most people today are using it to cover cars built...
You might try the GM Heritage Center. They have Vehicle Information Kits for the 1925 Chevrolet and 1926 Chevrolet and while I haven't dug deep...
It's a Fronty Model T (for Touring) head. Read all about it here. The car ran 87 mph at a dry lake in 1940 with the top down but the fenders still...
Indeed, but it's not really a gow in the sense of this thread. More like hot iron with that V-8 and steel wheels.
What are you asking? I'm doing a T but a lot of my friends up around here are working on A/B stuff.
Notice both "Speedy Aunt Molly" and the Texaco truck have similar Sky Chief signs on the door. Seems to have been The Thing...
The Flivver Races at Walla Walla, Washington, 1940.
A couple of ridiculously small stills from Dancing Lady, a 1933 film featuring everybody and their brother (including Joan...
