Re: What is this attached to the carb on 1936 Ford

Re: Anybody else quit Ebay because of fees and tax?

I'm not on FB but a number of my friends, are.

They all buy and sell via that today, none of them do E-Bay for the reasons mentioned. They all have said that they had had enough.

Re: 31 tires

Only problem I would have would be, they are too nice to get dirtied up I'd display them in an old time Ford Parts Dept. display !

Those guys did a really nice job on the car! They started out with a pretty rough one. Skilled indeed.
