The Jalopy Journal
My condolences to the Klessig family.
I don't think it's anything to do with fans or water wetters or air in the heater lines.
The 12º initial is ok.
The 34º doesn't mean much to me...
I'd be taking the starter apart to see if "remanufactured" meant anything other than making the outside clean.
Check the brushes, check inside the...
Here's a 98.
the roof is different the 98 used the same roof as a Coupe DeVille, and the trunk is an extra dead body longer.
I call my Blue truck "The Blue Truck." :rolleyes:
Is this group still active?
Triumph sports cars had them well into the '60's.
Virtually all post WW-II hotrods ran sealed beam headlights. King Bee, Dietz, or Guide buckets, but NO one used "old" big-ass headlights on a...
Has every custom that was ever featured in a car magazine been posted on this thread by people who just hate customs, yet?
They were so much easier to customize 50 years ago... :cool:
Hasn't changed much today! https://email@example.com,-102.331294,3a,75y,62.85h,72.32t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s9mmtVDHYXFxj4IjTBxx5WA!2e0
Back in '69 I bought a used '67 VW that would do 70 in third gear which I didn't expect since my '61 would barely do 63 mph with a tail wind,...
Are you going to put a '49 Mercury grill in it?
same idea but norm-made and I think chromed. memory is going....
That club plaque is hiding a huge lift block like used by off roaders with really long U bolts.
Looking at that intersection, actually the next one up the street makes one wonder how they ever managed two way traffic on them. they are one way...
If turning the idle mixture screws in or out has little or no effect you may have the idle speed screw screwed in way too high and it's trying to...
That was what is referred to as the "(New) Jersey Droop" and you ruined it! ;) B|
You guys do realize that even if they were a lot of work, some of these cars were built as a total joke in the first place?
Done by Brooks Stevens, who also did the Excalibur cars.
BigDrag, is that part of a '59 Pontiac hood used to fill the roof?
You should cut the finished flare off the bottom and move it up and reweld it higher. Real important to get them the same length and not tilted....
Is it getting Thunderbird seats like in the drawing?
If I met Smokey Yunick I'd at least verbally punch him in the mouth for starting what made NASCAR what it is today,
"kitcar racing." :(
I used metal cut from the roof of a parted out VW squareback.
Good German steel and it had just the right amount of crown to match the bottom 5"...
Looking great, too bad so many people throw on some Black primer and stop there...
But where do you hide those panels, because they sure as hell ain't traditional!
I have two of these screwed to the underside of the steering column support under my dash, one hot one switched. Easy to reach, cost less than a...
Hell, I already had some so I used them on my Blue GMC, Even though it was already a cliche over two decades ago.[ATTACH] truck, done before the...
