The Jalopy Journal
If it's an original V-8 car, it should be easy. If you're converting a six-cylinder car, you should do some reinforcing to the chassis and upgrade...
I found one of the expired advertisements for that black '57 with the cutouts. It has Stewart-Warner gauges, but is apparently "just" a D-code...
That is TOUGH. What's it got going on under the hood?
I was thinking the same. That or the Stout Scarab. Very cool!
I did not expect the awnings to be solid like that! That's way cool.
Strip-down/cut-down seems to have been a very prevalent term when these cars were being built the first time. To the modern user, though, I've...
That looks awesome as it sits, but baby moons wouldn't hurt too much. My ideal would probably be spider caps.
I think the big thing is not to sweat it. Putting together a collection of pre-war parts into something drivable is cool and it's got to please...
I hadn't noticed the question about what's going over Rajo Jack's radiator. I'll bet it's cord to stabilize the radiator during hard road driving...
I took that photo. Looking over the Wilcox car, I had the feeling it had been together for quite a while by 1940 but, of course, there was no...
It's because I went direct to the source. Lots of good photos on Shorpy of early dealerships and parts stores.
That car is incredible. Are those 19-inch Model A wheels?
I didn't realize Ed's name hadn't come up here, but you're absolutely correct. Ed and his younger brother Bud are giants in racing and rodding...
That's cool, @rusty1 !
If you've been on the HAMB a while, you probably have seen these before. Looks like they date back 18 years or so. Does anyone know who...
Where can we learn more about said chassis? Sounds neat. You don't see enough column shifters in hot rods.
@mctim64 I've been meaning to ask. What's the overall plan for this new roadster? Or is it a surprise?
Big news for me this month is that my straight-through Holley NH, high-volume intake, and Z head get delivered today!
Came by the HAMB to put up a want ad and realized I should probably ask here too. I'm looking for a set of "Rocky Mountain" brakes for a Ford...
Pretty nifty Cragar posted by AHRF today.
That's a good way to lose via holeshot.
Ah, I forgot, @David Mazza posted a couple pictures from our trip.
I think you're right, practice is what I'm really lacking. If I just sat down once a week and spent an evening soldering together junk pieces of...
I just saw it a few months ago at Lang's. They're picking away at it. I believe the engine was at the machine shop when I was there.
Well, color me intrigued. I can read a wiring diagram just great, but I SUCK at soldering. What are the tools you use?
An exhaust-pressurized fuel tank was original equipment on the 1912 Oldsmobile Autocrat.
I agree, that is a handsome-looking top.
This photo just came up on Hemmings.
