The Jalopy Journal
PM me the details.
I had one in a 1980 Corolla. Those things are bulletproof. I had a friend who had one run for 300,000 (and still going) miles with nothing more...
All chopped Model A coupes look terrible.
I remember that from when I collected them. Very weird.
Coming from a time when customs were becoming increasingly gaudy and ridiculous, that one really stands out as clean, understated, well...
Isn't the 850 a 261 head? Look for the "captain's bars".
Looks like the Tri-State Mall.
People screw with them because different people have different aesthetic senses. If I had a '49 or a '50, the first thing I'd do is ditch that...
Is that the one that was stolen right after it was finished and wound up in a ravine?
Expatriate, not ex-patriot. You still love America, right?
Castrol Super Clean. It's murder on latex, and it doesn't affect plastic.
I think the story was that it had electric fans that had to be turned on by the driver, and Bobby Darin forgot to turn them on when he was stuck...
I remember when rodders used to bag on new cars for looking like used bars of soap. These sort of "Ol Skool" chops aren't any better.
If the one I have is any indication, it was a thin sheet of what looks like basswood.
Flagstaff averages over 100 inches a year.

No it can't. The world's coolest 4-door will never be as cool as the world's coolest 2-door.
Is it already time for another bash California thread?
My favorite part of these is how Mazooma1 always gets so tetchy. I thought we native...
Doors and trunk lid should interchange with those from a regular coupe.
I think the roof would need to be shortened too. Compare some pictures of sectioned shoebox coupes vs. tudors, and I think you'll find that the...
Note to tattoo-bedecked, parasol-toting orcabetties: this is what a pinup should look like.
I used to eat at the Cheese Shop (sandwiches), Giuseppe's (Italian) and Pierce's Pitt (BBQ) quite a bit when I lived there. Good luck figuring...
Are you sure that was a Spanish class? "No va" doesn't mean "old", it means "doesn't go". And "noventa" is "ninety", not "new".
All that car needs is new shoes, lowering and a warmed-over straight six.
What about it? It's a Caddy flathead.
