Yes advanced plating in Tennessee. They did most of the plating on my convertible, do great work. Most of mine was die cast which is difficult in...
Yes opinions are like ass holes every one has one
I don’t want to try any more magazines if they aren’t on the stands. I took speed and kulture and am very disappointed with that one so won’t try...
Hang in there, good friends are hard to find. He is in a better place. RIP Joe T
This was never true, Douglas county (Omaha) and Dakota county were all higher than Hall county (Grand Island)
This will be interesting to see if Vern Walker comes to his senses and cancels the NSRA Nationals
No the transmission is too long to permit not splitting the wishbone
Keep this all Olds, get a 455 V-8 and a 400 turbo trans, that’s what I have in my 48 98 convertible
This is a neat thread, seeing old photos of family and cars is the best. As for me I don’t know how I got this passion for old cars, as no one in...
And NSRA Street rod Nationals still a go?
I love the Buick wagon!!
Guaranteed it is not the way the body is mounted!! It is the rear axle move it to center the wheels in the fender opening. My 39 Deluxe was the...
I agree with the big grinder thoughts. Mine has been in a cabinet for years now, and I have no intention of using it again. My 4 1/2 inch Dewalt...

Nice pictures, thanks!
That sounds hokey to me, I would never try it.

I caught that episode the other night on ME TV.
I didn’t know that it was ever on Green Acres
Danny that is a great picture of you and Brenda.
Happy birthday Ed, and many more for you
Yes a subframe would have been the way to go. They aren’t that bad to install, it also gives you a much better suspension as well. I have one in...
IMO the 40 door and vent look great. In my 39 deluxe coupe that I had , I used 40 doors to get the vent windows. Just find 39 pieces and use them...
I was under the impression that all Olds heads had the holes, just not in the valve cover
Like I said get a valve cover gasket for a 1973 year engine and use it as a pattern to drill the holes in the later valve cover. That will get you...
NAPA gold is a wix filter, I don’t think we have a parts store in town that sells wix, so I use the NAPA gold filters.
IMHO I would use a valve cover gasket as a pattern and drill the remaining holes into the valve cover. That should correct your leakage problems....
It’s been a few years since I was at the nationals but I never paid $338 a night for a room. That’s highway robbery
