Re: Ok, I've got a question for the Northerners....long.

Could be good could be bad. If you live near the ocean you are exposed to salt 24/7 like it or not. Add to that the super humid Florida climate and ya got trouble.

Re: Ok, I've got a question for the Northerners....long.

Thank you. I thought I was one of the few I also gave up watching that over hyped nonsense because of that. Gives me more time in the garage.

Re: insurance

My observations also.

Continental Western Ins. used to advertise in Old Cars Weekly, they cover Midwest cars. Seem pretty reliable.

Re: Model "A" Cars vs. Their Successors

Good topic.

Our '36 Ford is easier to get in and out of than the '30 Roadster. You don't bump your head and it's far far easier to get your feet and legs in and out. The doors shut tighter. It is...

Re: bmw woes

BMW and Mercedes are nice cars when new, but they are over-engineered.

They are a maintenance nightmare. Parts and labor. I know of a guy that spent $2200 having the two front shocks replaced on a...

Re: Brake Light Switch
