Folks Of Interest H.A.M.B.er mug shots.. Let's see yours!

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Deuces, Apr 19, 2011.

  1. Yes, the color was her choice, her car.
    It was a long (many years actually) discussion.
    We arm twisted over yellow, pale blue, light green,and even a brief discussion over copper.
    Finally she told me to paint it dark metallic blue.
    I brought home about 300 color chips from the body shop one spring afternoon and laid them all out in the sunshine in our back yard. All dark blue.
    Told her to pick one.
    She pondered the things for a minute or two then turned to me and said “Nope, I want it pearl white, the same white as my Solara Convertible”
    Didn’t see that coming. I was stunned!
    Ok, it’s her car. Gonna be white. IMG_3059.JPG View attachment 3913534

    No good putting my mug up as I look like most others. Grey beard, grey thinning hair with devon slice on top (slang term, Google it) and twinkle in the eye when mechanical things are mentioned.

  9. When I saw the photo the same thing went through my mind, it appears you actually CAN pick your friends nose but alcohol is the deciding factor. HRP

    That’s a nice shot. A dapper young man and his machine, or his fathers machine or whatever, it’s just nice to see young people interested in old cars. Pass the torch.

    I wonder if those cast iron headers fit a '66-67 Fairlane 500... Probably not!... :(

    No,afraid not. These fit the 1965 and up Ford Galaxies. (Look at the car in my avitor).They only came on the 427 powered cars. There are cast iron sets that fit the Fairlanes, but look different than the ones I holding. I been looking for a set for years, found them last month.

    Guy in Torrington, CT back in the late 70’s had an original “R” code fairlane, ‘67 I think. He ran headers but I recall talking about the manifolds that came on the car and he had them still. The right side looked worse than a truck manifold off of a 360 wrecker.

    Nothing like the big car 427 manifolds.
