Re: (94,s 49 jets--4.5 power valves.

Mr Charlie Price is on the 'avoid' list, at least for a few of us. Not to be confused with the other Charlie on this forum, the good guy. (Just opinion)

On a related subject, have any of you 46-48 owners tried to use one of these jacks?

Re: Don't throw anything away

Re: flathead line bore

Re: How to tell if 12V or 6V bulb?

Re: 1934 5 Window Value ???

Re: 1934 5 Window Value ???

I think this is a pretty easy rule to work with. He could list it at $120,000, or best offer. The 120 would probably get attention, guys like me would notice it, and we could make our offer. Works...
