Re: MARC ballot and Constitution change

The national and regional meets are more of a convention than a car show. that may explain why visitors are not welcome. When I was involved in putting on meets, we would let visitors in to see the...

A while ago I asked about improving brakes on my 40. I installed the Bendix kit from Boling Brothers, and just finished rebuilding the Lockheeds on the rear. I had soft linings bonded on at the...

Re: rear hub grease seals

Mine have one snap ring, and it is right at the bearing, not at the seal. You may have done many of these, but not this one.

My father wore a hat when I was a kid, as all gentlemen did, until Kennedy was elected president, who did not wear a hat, and so followed the general public. I dont think you can find a hat in a...

Re: 31 Deluxe Roadster Cowl Lights?

Another clue is the seats. If they are original (probably not) the standard has wider pleats than the deluxe.
Very common in the 70's and 80's to make a standard roadster into a fake deluxe. That...

Re: rear hub grease seals

Well that is confusing, since the snap ring is against the bearing, and the seal goes in after.

Look in the judging standards. It has to do with the year of the car.
