Had these guys recast my Crestliner wheel.

Took 'em a little while and was not cheap, but it turned out factory new!

Re: Hershey Crisis

If you took all those boxes of toy trains out of your car, you'd probably have room. Leave 'em on the side of the road. Pick 'em up on the way to York!

Re: How Many Years Have You Owned Your Car Or Truck?

Grandpop bought my Dad and Uncle the 1950 Ford Crestliner you see in 1953 at F. C. Adams Ford and Mercury, Elmer NJ. In 2004 Dad turned it over to me. In the family for 64 years.

Cool Re: Dilbert on Restoring Old Cars (and other garbage)

+1, I'm also an engineer. I've restored old cars, audio equipment, toy trains and even an original civil war cannon.

Re: Not everyone likes old Fords.......

Dittos on car dealers not being 'car' people. We had a pleasant experience at a local Ford dealership and ended up buying my daughter a used Mercury Milan, but when I tried to chat up the sales man...

Re: Am I the only one?

I try hard to put things back when I'm done a job. Tools need a home and when they're not back home with their family at the end of the job, they're considered 'orphans'. Orphans tend to get lost and...

Re: Inferiority Complex

There was once a post, I think here, which asked something like "Did you find your car or did your car find you?" and I answered clearly the latter. I had no desire to own a classic, but when Dad...

Re: Something To Ponder...

Same here. I'm usually one of only a few flatheads on display. Too many shoeboxes with SBC's. If I see a stock flathead, I usually try to find and compliment the owner.

Re: Is your car planned or Fate?

Fate for sure. My '50 Crestliner adventures started with Dad's attempt to just 'dump money' into his car which turned into a disaster. Once the 'professionals' had their turn in butchering the...

Re: My Grandfather And His Tools...

I've got three girls and I still have problems with them walking away with my tools.

When I find a tool lying around outside its designated area I call it an "orphan" tool.
