The Jalopy Journal
If memory serves they should be gearing up to do their yearly run sometime relatively soon?
I picked up a running banger last week and started tearing it down to prepare for paint. Does this valve guide need to be replaced?[ATTACH]
Cool, being a poor man I like the idea of leaving it with the blasted finish. Still trying to figure out my exhaust manifold situation. Do I...
I scored this intake recently. I know it's a repop, but even those seem to be somewhat uncommon.
So my question to you is... Polish or paint?
Is there a significant performance difference between the split-Y style ex. manifolds and a 4 into 1?
Here's a question: am I able to drop these internals into an A case? I'd like to keep the synchros, but procuring a banger-to-V8 adaptor is going...
Heck... I can't even afford to read the WSJ... :confused:
That commercial grille looks killer! How many leaves are you running in the front spring?
Yep, you nailed it. I want to run the old stuff, but like you said re-chroming an old one is prohibitively expensive. @Boolajosh that looks great!
Anyone ever seen a car running an A grille shell, but painted? Would like some photos if anyone has any.
That is one of the coolest looking things I have seen here.
Which part of this car is non-traditional?
I was thinking of an otherwise stock A drivetrain.
Happy New Year and all that.
Anyone ever run a V8 trans without shortening the driveshaft? Curious if that's even possible.
Thanks! Have enjoyed this thread and the photos.
Hey, I have a question. With the stretch-drop axle did you have to modify any of your steering gear to clear the axle? Was thinking of going that...
Is there any benefit to going oversize on the exhaust valves as well as intake?
One more possibly dumb question for you... What lubricant do you use on all the zerks and tie rod ends? I can't find anything definitive that...
Awesome. I love this thing. Well worth the lack of trunk space!
Thanks! Maybe I'll have to wait for Hershey next year...
Question- If I want to run a Halibrand QC center and have a nice A banjo as a starting point, do the guts of the banjo just drop right in to the...
The one in Lawless was a cab, right?
What has been done to get the rear down on this car, frame Z'd?
Your photos are fantastic! Do you shoot with a white balance card?
Thanks. I'm fortunate enough to have a fantastic engine and machine shop 40 minutes from me, I'd like to have it repaired with metal. While I have...
Yep, that's the plan. Now that you mention it t could be JB weld. I thought it was lead or something similar. If that's the case, how are these...
Could have been shot over black as opposed to a white base.
I think this car would look even better with a California rake. But it already looks fantastic!
Is there any advantage to running no radiator? I assume it's just a weight reduction thing?
And to keep this on topic, I found this photo of it...
