Re: Mart's Update 2021 Episode 19 Part 1&2: The 32 Sedan body goes on!

Re: Do you think there will be another V-8 National meet?

Robert,


The roads are in pretty good shape these days and Auburn does not have a hotel big enough with the required on-site facilities for the size of the GNM. The latter rules out Auburn...

Re: 33 Cowl Vent

Re: Do you think there will be another V-8 National meet?

Re: 1933 Speedometer Gear Case

The correct number of teeth in the speedometer gear case is dependent on the ratio of your rear axle (4.11, 3.78, etc.). If you have larger than original rear tires, that will affect the accuracy of...

Re: 35 Coupe front floor mat

At one time the '35 front mat was accurately reproduced. The color was also different from the '36 mat (taupe for '35 versus Benton Gray for '36).
