Re: Never rent your car to the studios

Personally I would do it. Certainly depends on what is asked. Easy to find out. I guarantee there is a contract.

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

I have them on all my vehicles I own. Caps are cheap, think the worst was the 50's atlas's for my 38 and 36. 50$ is cheap for peace of mind when you leave your car outside a public place for awhile....

Re: Wiring new horns

Js not for a 38 truck or at least with the little one horn setup, on a 35 no relay is needed. But can't hurt. This is a new set of horns, so no idea or suggestions.

Re: gasoline

Buy the eth and burn it up. Don't let it sit in your car forever. granted I only use non-ox as it's available. Lot of guys use only eth all the time.

Re: Looking for spark plug wires for my C69

Decent choice, if you have ends you can make them from bulk wire. Takes about 12ft if I remember for a v8 flathead. About 4$ per foot most places for bulk. So 43$ is not bad.
Looks like you got it...
