    58 Nomad

    What trans does/did it have? Many '58's had the Turboglide. Also, is that a Quadrajet adapted to the OEM intake? My wife's grandfather when we were first married, had a 59 Nomad, six with a stick. Got sold to a good home. I went to Covina In N Out Burger on a Thursday night, the big parking lot...

    Bad news guys, but for only me...

    Best wishes as you and they both work to manage your condition.

    Reparations

    Fuzz has this thing exactly the way it is. It's a form of ownership. In the 30 years I worked for the City of Los Angeles fixing cars,trucks,and vans,I took the promotional exam and interviews half a dozen times or so. I read up on equal opportunities and affirmative action, came up with...

    Reparations

    You're absolutely right here. Would you be better off being a slave in Mississippi or a banker in Tehran? Here, you won't disappear in the middle of the night and be fed to the goats.

    Reparations

    It's not even a racial issue, although it's seen as one. Any time you take any group and make them a target for exploitation,politically,morally or socially, there comes a two standards system-lesser standards for the ones being exploited, and higher standards for the rest of us. Fact is, we're...

    Reparations

    Seems that all the great society entitlement give aways did was breed an entitlement mentality into those targeted to be the recipients. All that war on poverty talk from 50 years plus ago did was create a dependency class of persons who would not have to be responsible for themselves like the...

    Reparations

    I would like to add to what I wrote earlier today. Why would we be interested in reparations for the persons who don't or won't work for their living when our nation's great veterans have been disregarded by the same government that sent them overseas to take the ultimate chance with their life...

    Reparations

    Let's see- been little quiet lately. I'll try and be concise. Let's examine American history as it happened.not the leftist revisionist version. The Civil War was fought over slavey.500,000 fatalities. President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Slavery in the USA ended at that...

    National Athiest's Day

    Bob, you're right,as usual. With the growing effort by the left, a special day dedicated to fools would seem to lose it's significance,hence the lack of distinction. However, it's not just an American problem. Growing leftist liberal socialism is almost everywhere. We seem, however, to be the...

    National Athiest's Day

    I'm surprised more didn't get this. Psalm 14:1 was the observation that"The fool says in his heart, "there is no God.." I guess April Fool's day doesn't get much recognition any more. Put the two of them together, and it turns into National Atheist's Day. I think the first time I ran into this...

    Bee Hive valve springs

    A nice thing about beehive springs, like the ones sold by PAC, is that the smaller diameter spring retainer allows for more clearance between the retainer and spring and whatever rocker arm you choose to use. Constant evolution of technology.

    Vietnam Wall Memorial

    They used to use Agent Orange on the fire breaks on the front range of the San Gabriel Mountains above LA. We used to hike there frequently, some of the trails even followed and crossed the firebreaks at times. They quit that practice in the early '70's, now they are all grown in. Now, if they...

    Bee Hive valve springs

    Seems to me that the Pac valve spring part # for the small block is 1409X. The 817 head could probably use these as a drop in,but check your spring pressures at the proper installed height. Also,don't use that much spring pressure on a driver motor or even a bracket race motor. That much spring...
