Re: Last years body on this years car

I see no mystery here at all. The car is what it is. A talented builder can make anything his imagination desires, its only metal. Go over to the HAMB and see what some guys are putting together.

Re: Thanks Charlie NY....

Charlie did the carb for my 48. I bolted it on and it cranked and ran smooth as a baby's butt immediately. Can't be more pleased with his work.

Re: Who sells frame bolts that look like rivets

I would "assume"(we all know what that means) that most people with these old Fords do not build them for judging, we just build them to enjoy. I like a perfectly restored car as much as anyone but...

Re: 1932 Ford Pickup wood fasteners

I bought SS carriage bolts from Lowe's. Unless you are doing an actual restoration, they are close enough that the difference in head size isn't noticeable. They fit just like the rusty ones I...

Re: Risk of using old (over 10 years) tires

I don't drive my old cars over 45-50 mph. I avoid 4 lane highways and enjoy the back roads and local streets. I have only had one blowout in 55 years of driving and that was a recap so I will take...

Out of the 8 cars and trucks I have, only one has tires newer than 10 years. I will take my chances.

Re: Saving The 1939 Mercury Coupe From The Rust Lagoon
