Re: Buying a car site unseen.

Whew ! Some horror stories for sure. I bought a 34 five window sight unseen except for photos at Hershey. I had chased the owner trying to catch up with him and finally gave up. Came home and...

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"

You sure have to be some kind of impressed with those loads of logs ! Can you imagine meeting one of those suckers on the highway knowing what he had for stopping ability ?

Re: Totally Rouge '51 Custom??

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: Dec 7, 1941 Let us never forget

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

41ford1, this was one of my first thoughts. I recently installed a newly rebuilt distributor and it was set just a tad different than when I sent it down. I did just a slight advance thinking that...

Re: Running too warm

OK. There seems to be a general consensus that installing a fan shroud would be helpful. That being said, could anyone please give me an explaination as to how this works ? I guess what you are...

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

Running too warm

I know this issue has been talked about almost to death on here but I am disturbed by how warm my car is getting recently. I stuck a meat thermometer in the flow and saw over 200 and feel that is way...

I'll tell you they are pretty darned heavy when your walking backwards helping a fellow with one and you trip on a rock and the rear cross member comes down on your legs !
