Carter's Cut and Cover Shop, Beardstown, Illinois

I think they may have closed up shop in the last few years, but they used to be a good source of pretty decent Model A Ford interiors.

My father-in-law bought one of their interior kits for his...

Re: Ford Steering gear box

I like to see people rebuild and restore original steering boxes. To me the much vaunted F-100 'conversion' is another band aid fix that doesn't address the problem.

In the '70's the big fix was...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Maybe because 'Clara' sounded too 'slow'???:p

Yes and to think they did a lot of it under cover in the old Greenfield Village shops, that project was kept pretty secret away from prying eyes.

Ford turned the automotive world on it's ear and...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Doesn't sound like a very good idea. I don't think I'd want to be involved with that technique.

Usually the old tried and true...

Terry you are spot -on that plus the EPA got a bit out of control. By design. Part of 'the Plan.' But that's another story.............

Re: letting go

Sorry to hear of your health issues.

It is real hard to let go of a car like this one, that you have owned for so long and made a lot of good memories with.

Re: Collector Car Insurance

Two claims in a short period of time puts up a big red flag with the insurance company. You may have screwed yourself.

This puts you on their watch list as a liability. And they all share info...

Re: Dearborn Hotel Update!

That's a great place to stay especially if you are a Ford devotee! Fun to walk the building and see the big matted prints of the early Fords T's-A's-V/8's-Lincolns plus the history of the place.
