  1. 48 Lincoln Cropped.jpg What's with all the 1948's?
    Here is my 1948 Lincoln Continental. Apart right now but finishing up the install of a 390 FE with 3X2 intake and a 9" rear axle (4bar).
    When I bought it in 1998 (we were both 50) it had a 1957 Caddy and a conversion BH to the OD Lincoln trans. In OD it would just coast so brakes were very important, BUT, the under the floor brake cylinder was right next to the exhaust pipe so the brake fluid would expand and lock the brakes up. As low as it is I'd have to jack up one of the wheels and crack a bleeder to get it rolling again. All will remedied with the rebuild.

    My 55 is a year younger than I am, but it was assembled one week before my wife was born. The wife says she is not old, she is a classic.

    When you were born in 1945 the choices are slim.

    My 57 chevy is the same year as I am and bought this in 19 Vic (2).jpg 77 and still have it. This picture was taken in 1985. The car still looks the same but I can not say that for myself.

    I have 3 different ages, one being my actual age, 2 being how old my body feels at times, and 3 how young and childish I behave.

    I've got a '46 and a '48 Ford's. I was born in '47. Close but no cigar.

    In 1996 I traded a '54 Cadillac Coupe DeVille on my '38 Buick. When I found the original purchase paperwork in the car I found that Captain Irving B. Bush took delivery of his new car a week before I was born.

    "I was this close"!
    My 57 so three years too new. 20160627_105056.jpg

    I thought I wanted my grandmothers' 54 Chevy when she died but my cousin (girl) beat me to it, in a short time she messed it up. I guess she did me a favor because the 54 was never my favorite model of Chevy anyway.

  29. Nope, never owned a '48. I did own a '57 that was built on my birthday, just 9 years later!
