Re: 51 merc needs a little speed up

I feel like you're floating a golden raft in a sea of turds. If you got your car up to 70 then someone doing 80 would be pissed. People trying to cut 5 minutes off a twenty minute trip will never be...

Re: picked up a 1935 pickup project

Restored window regulator is awesome! That's digging deep and coming up gold right there- no such thing as "free time". Great whole car build thread, love the blurry line between "repaired" and...

Re: The finished package

Re: NY Times on the demise of the automotive cult

Re: two carb setup

Re: 1934 5 Window Value ???

Hate to say it but I imagine most folks who could/would afford the cost of one of those would prefer to drop the bod and fenders on new, modern running gear. It may be slower but more profitable to...

Re: Looking for a cariature ~~
