    Nothing is ever easy

    My '62 had a crack in the paint in the middle of the hood where the PO closed it on the oil fill cap which was sitting on the air cleaner a few years ago. There was also a flaw in the trunk lid. I had talked to a local body shop about getting both reshot. He called me a week or so ago and told...

    These make me happy.

    Doing some sanding and varnishing on a chest. Have gone in and out of the garage for tools and supplies several times. Each time I do, I get a warm feeling glancing at the cars. They are usually covered up. When they are not, it’s like I am looking at the “chicks” thread - only these I can fondle.

    Tallest radial tire?

    You could go with a Coker American Classic which looks like a bias but is a radial construction. I have the whitewalls but they make blackwalls and you can get them over 29" high in 15"...

    WELL..............

    Patience and continued soaking with a penatrant such as PB blast or Deep Creep and whacking on the back of your tire with your sledge. I never hit the rim as it will ruin it. If there are any holes in the wheel that will allow you to get the penetrant down along the face of the drum use those...

    1965 Impala SS 409 Convertible Evening Orchid

    Welcome! Beautiful car and a great history. Love the evening orchid color. I have a friend with a '65 hardtop (small block) sitting in his garage for many years in evening orchid. Hasn't been touched since at least 2008.

    New rear gear recommendations

    I have 3.73's in my '62. I cruise around at 55 mph or so and the tach is at 2750. My '61 Corvette has 3.70 with a TKO600 My '70. GTO had 3.55 and my '65 had 323. The 3.23 was best obviously, at cruising at about 60 mph ( about 2500 rpms). All cars were muncie 4 speeds except the Corvette. I...

    Virus and HI-WAY Speed

    It has really been noticeable. I think people believe that they won't get pulled over as there has been much less enforcement in my area. I drive 60 mph on the 55 mph state highway I live on and people fly by me. My son lives in NC and everyone seems to drive much faster than the posted limit...
