The Jalopy Journal
That coupe belonged to Dick Kelley of The Tyrods of Massachusetts. I think most of the pictures are from 1956. Pic 10003 is the same car.
That’s gotta be the most car parts I’ve seen at that swap in at least 15 years. Last time I went it was all beef jerky and women’s handbags.
I would say it's the people. If I was asked what I hated most about the hobby, I would also say it's the people.
Never had a problem in 25+ years, but go ahead and believe the charts someone could easily make in MS Powerpoint to say whatever they want.
Unless you're racing baja class every weekend, you're gonna be just fine with a few extra "particulates".
K&N air filters work great. I use them in everything. This is just more fake news from the big air filter fat cats.
People used to make a living at fixing wrecks, now the public turns their nose up at them. There was no Carfax back in the day, so you could be...
What do you have for a resistor?
I appreciate Brian and his craftsmanship, but that was a nice stock full fendered car that they cut up. It could have been made into a nice hot...

I'm 40 and I love hot rods and customs, but most people my age are lusting after square body Chevies,...
I’ve been down the same road as you. My 8BA is .125 over with a Schneider cam. I bought French military crank and rods from So-Cal speed and had...
Why buy on the way down?
Vinyl top. I'm not afraid of rust, but 90% of vinyl top cars out here are hiding a tragedy and I don't want to mess around with roof skins and crap.
I haven't read through all the answers, so I may be beating the poor dead horse, but here's my opinion:
Beautiful car, but-
1.) You're going...
Fair point, and the trouble with having an advertiser sponsored product is you don't really get to hear if it's junk or not because the publisher...
Yes, and if I recall correctly, SBC head bolts are perfect to use to hold the motor to the stand.
If you take a hard look at the magazines that were killed, there was A LOT of content overlap that they could have compressed into a few good...
Look up 'Ironthread'. https://www.ironthread.com/
They did our club jackets. Very nice work. You'd have to ship them the jackets.
Wild guess here, but that could be '68 Ford 'Presidential Blue'. I think Ford re-hashed it in the 80's as a truck color. Might be worth a look.
They just announced it went to the printers about a week ago...I'd give it a few more weeks before I got worried.
Heartbreaking. I've read his posts many times over the years and spoke to him on occasion. RIP Bruce.
Stock oil and temp sensors are fine with 12V. You'll just need to change the bulb that illuminates the dash.
GAUGES will need either a runtz...
Strange, but I guess not unbelievable considering the crap the aftermarket provides all too often.
Maybe I'm stupid, but I fail to see how an air filter can change a car's behavior THAT drastically unless the K&N was absolutely caked by a mouse...
Man, that Merc looks like an excellent deal at $18K
Old Car Owner : "f*ck you!"
Also Old Car Owner: "Why aren't people more interested in my hobby?!"
LOL, look at all the victim shaming.
I may be mistaken, but the '57 Ford in the first pic looks like it has an early Connecticut plate on it.
Cool pics, thanks for sharing.
I have an Autometer gauge in my cab that monitors the passenger side. I have a Mooneyes direct mount on the drivers side that I put there mostly...
