Re: Comments on wanted to buy section

I always find that people are a lot more liable to be insincere online rather than on the phone.On the phone it can be,too much money,not exactly what I want,any of a dozen reasons.That's fine,but it...

Re: Comments on wanted to buy section

I'm the other way around.If they are too lazy or stupid to use a telephone then they don't need to be dealing with me.I sell lots of old junk,tractors,trucks,parts,a little bit of everything.I find...

Re: Odd Failure

Re: Anyone Know About This Car?

The only thing that has saved me from going after that car is the fact that it is a puffy top.My favorite car is a Victoria,but a steel back.In a rare car the only thing important to me is solid...

Re: Anyone Know About This Car?

i know the car exists,and is not a scam.I was going to go up and look at it,but I have to stop the habit of selling two to thin out,and then buying three.

Re: Anyone Know About This Car?

I had serious thoughts of buying that car.I sold my Roadster and my Tudor,and I bought a 35 3 window coupe I've been looking at for 40 years.I thought about buying it anyway,but I am trying to thin...

Re: Zenith Carb leak

Split the carb halves,and look at the bowl vent,where it vents to the atmosphere.It will be in the top half,to one side and just below the float bracket.It is a tiny hole,and if it gets plugged the...

Re: Schwalms

I had a Chevy six that did exactly what yours is doing.The owner pulled it out of a 55 Chevy in 1967 and had it rebuilt.He put it back in,ran it around the yard for an hour or so,he said probably 5...

Re: LED head lights

Badpuppy,the lights in that link are for signals,parking,etc.They are to be seen,not to see with.It says that in the rap sheet,so focus is not an issue with those.Those aren't the headlight...

Re: I think my exhaust valves are burnt

Re: Prices Up ?
