    Gasoline Recommendation

    Just a short note of thanks for everyone that has given their opinions. I was able to get lucky and have a small container with me while near the track when the guys were there working and had time to open the fuel pumps. So I have enough for the Lake George concours event for the 61 SS...

    Uuh that’s what they are loading. Only cars I know they did that with. I wonder if the current small cars whatever they are, are transported like that Robert

    Gasoline Recommendation

    I have a 61 SS with a correct 623 single 360 HP 409 and a 62 SS with a dual carb 409/409.(I am not certain if this engine has dual SS head gaskets) Also a 61 348 dual carb but is a lower compression engine. I have always used racing gas in them as they aren't driven just show only but in my...

    Traction issues also

    Great suggestions guys:hug I am going with trying spray bed liner but Bob’s suggestion sounds like fun. The issue is really bad if wet grass is behind the trailer then the car tends to go sideways at launch on the ramp. I probably ought to start up the ramp from farther away at speed but am...

    Traction issues also

    I have traction issues also I noticed today while loading some household items into the trailer. I believe the traction item is more noticeable when I load the 61 409 as it has the stock wheels The 62 SS red car has the optional GM 409 wheels thus spreading the tire a bit more. Robert

    Hydraulic lifters versus solid lifters

    6 Percent of Americans don't believe we landed on the moon.

    Yes he was and very principled! In his youth ran away from home to sail schooners and steam freighters. Was a real woodsman and horseman. But could walk up to the Governor to “give advice” as I have photos of a couple of those spontaneous events. Received accommodations from the Army but never...

    6 Percent of Americans don't believe we landed on the moon.

    My grandfather lived quite a few years after the moonwalk. Was an interesting person; was hijacked from the port of Baltimore as a young teenager to crew a ship to the orient. After returning was with Roosevelt’s rough riders and slightly wounded. Would not accept payment of services in...

    Before the Thunderbolt.

    What’s the significance of it as shouldn’t be on a restoration car Seems as the several recent restoration cars completed aren’t “restomodes” thus requiring a stock hood Robert
