Re: dumb questions

I love talking about my cars, but not many people I see ever ask any. I just get “nice car”. I always smile and say “Thank You, it’s a lot of fun”. The one I did get is “ Is that a Studebaker”?........

Re: drum puller

I opened mine last nite while my son was visiting. He’s a Tool and Die Maker at the ship yard in Kittery. He looked it over good and thought it was a real well made tool. Rugged, good quality...

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

I have a ‘32 motor and I’m sure I could never afford the rest of a car, but I’m fascinated at the many minor changes and how much you guys know about them. Great reading! Thanks!

Re: 1950 Rearend Disassembly
