    The H A M B is a strange place. When N S R A bumped up the year to 82. Everybody was gonna ban Walker Radiator. Then when he closed everybody was sad. Now with new owners, everybody is thrilled. The first(or the second) unhappy customer will then start a thread and complain to the whole world.
     
  2. I have had my Walker in my coupe for 15 years and before that, a Model A coupe with one and both have been perfect. Here in AZ, it can get really hot and no issues at all. I was already buying up old Walkers as a backup just in case of accident or something else and so glad Alan came on here with the straight story.

    Very few folks here knew the Walker/NSRA connection

    I put a Walker in my A because Mike and Jim Barrillaro said it was what I needed. It hurt a little to pay for it but my car never overheats even with the way I drive it. So it was worth every penny.
    Glad to hear that the legacy will continue.

    I do. I never had any problems with his radiator product...so I've used them for the past 35 years. But I did have a problem with his NSRA product....so 1992 was the last one of those I attended.

    The photo shows the sticker that @lurker mick had mentioned in the thread that I originally posted the above comment in. I have not attended a NSRA event in years, I have nothing against free enterprise but I did expect the National Street Rod Association to remain pre ‘49 especially after their Street Machine division folded.

    I recall a couple of slogans by our late departed scribe, Tom 'Stroker' Medley:

    Street is neat
    East is neat

    Finally, but not sure who coined the 'final one': West is best.
    (there were cast aluminum plaques, similar to the 'Moon Equipped' and 'No Club, Lone wolf')
