The Jalopy Journal
Very cool. But weren’t you tempted to buy some of the model kits themselves?
My son is a freshman at Lehigh and he's doing one there.
He's not quite done with it but it's really cool.
I told him to do an Ardun conversion...
Maybe a re-visit to the sawmill?
My son and I visited you at the mill last fall when looking for an A chassis.
You gave us the grand tour. It's a cool old place.
Glad to see you...
I need a new air compressor. My old Sears (circa 1975) 2hp unit isn't up to the task anymore.
You're 36... and have a 2 post lift? I'm 61 and still lying on cardboard. Lol
Seriously, maybe just take a break for awhile. That might be...
I think the engines were black with gold valve covers and air cleaners up to and including 1965.
From '66 on they were blue.
The 352 in my...
Is that why rear radius rod kits, like Pete & Jakes, have a bracket that is to be welded completely around the housing?
And do you weld say, an...
I always enjoyed his posts and found him to be a wealth of information.
May he rest in peace.
What theHighlander said. True, true, true.
I tried the spacer rings on my '33 with mechanical brakes.
The studs were not long enough to engage all the threads in the lug nuts so I didn't...
It's interesting that some of you run them tubeless and some use tubes.
Could it be that some castings were just a little better than others?
These are definitely old and magnesium, kidney bean type. I've had the fronts on a car, with tubes, no problems. I had them for a long time.
I've had, and still have Halibrand wheels and always ran tires with tubes.
(Maybe I was listening to too many old wives tales about porous...
Banjorear... We have been spending some time in the garage. Mostly gathering the stuff for putting juice brakes and a dropped axle in the '33. I...
I'm thinking of ordering Vern Tardel's books. Maybe all of them.
Are they worth it? Any reviews?
Just want a little feedback from anyone...
Great looking truck!
Is there a build thread on it?
Not long after I bought my '39 Ford Woodie I noticed carpenter ants crawling from beneath the old vinyl roof covering. That got my attention! I...
I wondered where that car went. Lol. I saw it years ago at Englishtown. It's very cool....
I drive a '65 Country Squire pretty much daily, unless I'm driving my '65 Country Sedan beater.
(Okay, sometimes I borrow my wife's Camry, because...
Mark, no, I didn't shoot the video.
I found it online. I think I did a search for "Model A-V8".
I saved it in my favorites. It's perfect.
Years ago I saw a "T" Touring which I believe someone from the Philadelphia Modifiers owned.
It was brown, (I think), Flathead powered,...
I just read it (actually, skimmed through it) about 5 minutes ago.
I agree, not much traditional stuff, but I can always learn something too....
Are you building something new?
I wonder if they'll be any recycled Sportsman parts this year? :D
Get well soon.
Rest in Peace
