Re: Evans waterless coolant

Re: Interesting Article & Pictures....

Mhsprecher, The headlights do look a bit odd almost like the E&J type, but they would seem to be (from some older photos in the Tony Thacker, 32 Ford book) similar to the ones Edsel had installed.

My friend here in Scotland has got hold of a 1940 mercury coupe, it is missing a rear axle and torque tube.

Re: My 1935 Cabriolet in "HEMMINGS CLASSIC CAR"

Managed to pick up a copy of the magazine, your cabriolet is a really nice car , a good read as was the article on the Lincoln.
Thanks for directing me to this.
