Re: The OneThat Got Away

Re: 4 Years, finished the '34 Three Window

A few people would not agree with skirts but to me it's out of the park for beauty with those. I can certainly relate to the amount of hrs. invested in a project like that. Wonderful job.

Re: 1940 Ford film 'While the City Sleeps"

Interesting about awards. I have before me, an AACA first prize winner for 1980 and also a Dearborn award winner, both came with my car. I keep them on a shelve inside and not on the car as many do....

Re: Old ford truck signage!

There used to be an electrical contractor in my area who had a sign on his truck that said, "call us to remove your shorts" ! I thought it was pretty neat.

Re: '35 / '36 restore

If that were mine and the cab was a 1935, (no radius at cowl, removable window frames etc) I would certainly do it up as a 35. Wire spoke wheels alone look sharp as opposed to the wide rims to me at...

Re: Running too warm

Duh ! Tom, I just went down and looked and it is a 6 blade. Senile I guess ? Also the coolant level is down just enough to allow for expansion without blowing off. Teflon tape ? see that, I told...

Re: Running too warm

OK, going down the list here, there are no thermostats in this engine. After a 6 mile run it is pretty warm when I return home but I usually don't check to see how hot it really is. There is only a...

Re: Running too warm
