Re: 97/48

Did some research on this car and it topped 250 mph in 1952( with only two flatheads), and was retired in 1957 when it reached a top speed of 270 mph.

Re: Swap Meet, Alameda, CA October 24th

Man, I sure do miss going to swap meets. There aren't any here, and not enough old Ford folks to have one. And I just can't see spending $$$$ in air fare just to go to one. I love seeing the pictures...

Re: lower radiator hose

Carquest 21236 radiator hose, it is a moulded hose, and it has a spot in it that has the right jog. Just cut off the part you need. Worked great for my AV8.

Re: I've changed my evil ways after watching this

That was really good! Loved seeing all the cars, and a movie without all the modern acceptable content.
Kinda reminded me of Leave it to Beaver, he always learned a lesson.
