Re: Accepting cash for car sale

Maybe I don't get it but shouldn't that read "buyer", in lieu of "seller'?

Re: Accepting cash for car sale

I believe you made the right decision. That amount of cash would raise my eyebrows under those circumstances. If the guy is legit he will arrange the transaction per your terms. After all, it's your...

Re: Buick woodie wagon

That's good to know Kube. Having been a Hemmings subscriber for many years I always regarded their integrity as impeccable. I suppose if I were going to try and sell a car I would certainly look at...

Re: Buick woodie wagon

Just another thought. If a value could be set that's comfortable for your friend there is always Hemmings online auction listings. You can set a reserve and if the reserve is met then the marketplace...

Re: No Thermostats

For what it's worth my Avatar '32 has a '33 engine which was rebuilt circa 1972. It has no thermostats and runs at about 160. In stop and go traffic and at prolonged stopped conditions it will rise...

Re: Buick woodie wagon

As a thought there must be a Buick Car Club that might be of help. Try looking in Hemmings or Google a Buick Car club. Surely there is info out there. As an aside I believe that hood ornament is...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Nice job! I'm living vicariously through you wishing I had the skills, tools and knowledge to take on a project like yours. Next step is if you could actually dump a real load out of that old bed,...

Re: New guy intro.

Where on earth did you find a '32 frame? I have '32 running gear just looking to find a frame that I don't have to take a second mortgage on and sell my firstborn for. LOL

Re: Interior heat

I can tell you when I drive my very stock Avatar '32 it can get quite hot inside. Granted it only gets driven on warm to hot days but it can get real uncomfortable inside. It's no surprise the...

Re: A few questions on a 8BA

We have a fold up cherry picker and it's great. In my opinion for what you're trying to do and on a budget I see them for sale frequently on Craigslist and Offerup for very reasonable prices or for...

Re: Theft Prevention Ideas??

I agree about the vandals. Whenever I drive either '32's I always am concerned some have not, shouldn't have to work, since I don't have it neither should you, Oh poor me, the government will give it...

Re: Don Everly Passed Away Yesterday

My late Uncle was a very talented singer and bass player in a C&W band. He is also responsible for acquiring the '32's in our family. A tough man with a soft voice and a Korean war vet. I fondly...

Re: One that came home today :)

Thanks Kube. Stunning! I could easily take a nap on that inviting sofa of a rear seat. It exudes comfort and luxury. They sure don't make'em like that anymore.

Re: One that came home today :)

Beautiful car! I agree that early 30's styling among the car companies of that era remains to this day unmatched. It's amazing these were created during the Great Depression. How about some more pics...

Re: I made a clock from the clutch out of my 50 Merc

Love it! A great way use parts and pieces and make art. Much better than scrapping and destroying a piece of history.

Re: Lincoln Bumper

Re: Should I?

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

I believe the previous owner(s) did the right thing in preserving a bit of history by putting this truck in your hands. If I weren't some 3000 miles away I'd like to shake their hands and pet that...
