I took a car to a local shop that swore their alignment guy knew how to set up old cars. I told him I wanted as much caster as possible. I got...
I do a drop of oil on the terminal with every oil change.
I wasn't born until 1961 and surely they were past tar-top batteries by then, but I...
I ruptured a hemorrhoid lifting a tire up to a car on a lift. Had surgery the next day and was barely out of high school. No recurrence since.
"You never did learn how to do paint and bodywork, did you?"
Bud and his wife were the sharpest dressed and happiest couple you would meet at any show they attended.
I got a bright idea to use a similar method using air pressure to find a vacuum leak on a 440. I plumbed a plate with a bung, bolted it in place...
That looks like the Mosher car that's for sale on e-bay.
I have a copy of a scanned magazine article detailing how they built the Golden Lancer.
ETA - well that was easier to find than I thought it...
I'm re-learning to use the socket rails you carry around to the worksite with you. At some point I started using those stand up tool box socket...
That's the same way we did them at Sears here, early 80s. We didn't have time to waste, and once you figure out how to do it, it's as quick as...

I set my timing to be 35* all in by 3000 RPM. But yeah.
When I read your post about having a no-start condition, I thought of that new cam and...
Sure. Now pull the other one. :D
Some have better lines than others
Not allowed? By who? I need to know who's in charge of wheel sizes around here.
Here is a Mallory YL-578HP dual point distributor for a Mopar RB or B with an adapter. All parts shown are included. Came with a car so I know...
I trained for a week at Hunter in Stowe. Man I'd like to be that young again.

A neighbor of mine has a 63 split window that's been back-halved. I would take a photo and post it but don't want to be responsible for someone...
Most if not all of the time.
Maybe the cut was to make room for a proper fix and flaring of the wheel openings.
If I understand what you're describing there, I did something similar on an OT car, but only in a couple of places where it doesn't matter. I...
That's familiar ... I need to get into my crawl space to fix something and keep thinking how it would be easier to install a trap door instead of...
Not enough power to spin the drum o_O
