Re: 1935 Floor Mats

More than likely, Dennis C. is producing the mats that most others are selling.
I recently bought a new mat for the forty from Jo's in Uxbridge and it is from Dennis. I guess the V8 club asked him...

Re: Where to start ?

Just regular "Junk" gas with no additives as long as I've owned it. I have a newly rebuilt "Bubbas" dist. in the trunk but did not want to go to the bother of changing it yet if not needed. Seemed to...

Where to start ?

Went to a show a short ways from home on Thursday evening, (about four or five miles) and while on the way back home developed a skip from time to time. Drove about three or four miles this AM and it...

Re: 37 pickup horns

Lawson, didn't the 36 deluxe have a chrome radiator shell and maybe a sliding rear window as well as a few other treats ? Just a curious old guy !

Great Race

Anybody here get to Maine to watch the start of the "Great Race" from Ogunquit beach ? Sure gives lots of comfort to think all the flat heads I saw expect to make it all 2300 miles to the "Villages"...

Re: Progress pics - 36 1/2 ton pickup

Scott, I'm curious, did you have to remove the head board to slide the old boards out ? I did on mine and the ones I took out were maple, and I believe 3/4 " thick. I could have cheated and only put...

Re: Gas Tank Assembly at the Rouge 1937

Would those tanks be possibly for pickups to stand behind the seat ? As kids we used to break thermometers open to get the contents to rub on coins to make them shiny. In later years, my partner...

Re: multiple cars

40cpe sounds like me, I have an 05 Tundra with I guess maybe 37,000 so far but her 06 RAV4 is another story altogether, 117,712 and counting. Twice the MPG than my truck, so I let it set except for...

Re: My brother and I picked up a couple 1934 Ford pickups parked in 1956 over the wee

Surprised Bob, "the Duck" or Dennis has not started tooling up for those years of rear fenders. Should be a snap compared to other shapes that get pressed. Seems like a few $$ could be made ?

Re: My brother and I picked up a couple 1934 Ford pickups parked in 1956 over the wee

Man, I'm bleeding to death here through my eye balls. How many times has anybody ever seen 32-34 rear fenders in "cherry" or close to it condition like that ? What a neat pr. of goodies those trucks...

Re: 1934, five window coupe. $?

You might get an idea of how much not to pay if you look at the 5 window body with rust on E Pay for a mere $25.000

Re: Gas Tank

Re: Gas Tank
