Re: 1934 Roadster For The Early Ford V-8 Foundation Museum

Bill & Jo Ann Fox are great V-8ers! And truly vintage is right about that car, it's a museum worthy one!

Re: Temperature gauge assembly

Hi, I have '35 and '36 cars, but my hint is if the dash is in the car, remove the speedometer to improve access to the gauges mounted beside it.

Re: 1936 Overheating Problem

Hi Everyone. Jon, I like the suggestion of just driving the car a while. Keep some coolant of your choice with you and check it and top off each time you stop for a few months of driving. You'll...

Re: Water pump repair

They'll want painting, but then straight on the car, or truck, in this case.

Re: Water pump repair

Many V-8'ers have Mr. Haney's handiwork on their cars, many. He might be the only guy doing coils to keep our cars running tip top. And he's a distributor guy. Oh yes, the 3# radiator check valve...

Hey old Tom and Pete, thanks fellas for bringing this to my attention. A good read, and BONUS, the largest batch of "flathead" pornography I've seen this summer.

Thumbs up Re: for those with sharp eyes ID these vehicles.

Good thread, I'll play.

I'm not the first to identify Pic #3 is a 1935.

It's a convertible. Do I see a rumble seat or a laid-in-place trunk lid, but in any case a Cabriolet or Roadster, not a...

Re: 1936 Ford Roadster - Grant Fleming, Canada

Some of us love our cars, like Grant does.

This owner didn't really love his car. I think he hated it and was way beyond ready to get an award to advertise his car's quality and get it sent down...

Re: 1936 Ford Roadster - Grant Fleming, Canada

Difficult choice, but the backseat in this model offers significant advantages. Wet and cold weather can be a challenge, but that's why you bring someone to snuggle with!

Re: Elgin road race

Sex-ay! And kicks butt! And a one-of-one with the actual provenance. Some heavy hitters have owned this dreamboat.

Re: Pat McFarlane RIP

Pat/Ohio, did you have some history with his Model B?

It looks like his road-buddy Mark might be assisting in sending it down the road. He's a good-un' too!

Re: Pat McFarlane RIP

I also remember Pat as a huge figure in our hobby.
