Re: NOS parts I will never use but keep .

I never get rid of a usable part for a car I own. I Do have lots of A parts and do occasionally help out a fellow hobbyist if they need a part.

Re: Victoria interior progress

Re: Rear Panhard Bar ?

I wouldn't think it would make any difference if you ran tube shocks, stock shocks or even friction shocks as long as there wasn't any clearance issues. Was the clearance issue the reason why? I like...
