    This is a bit of an old story, but I just recently stumbled onto it. http://www.streetlegaltv.com/news/video-police-errors-and-false-arrest-senior-citizens-humiliated/

    Finally found one!

    Well, it is home...finally. I've had the '63 in storage at my dad's for the past two years while I built a shop. The shop is semi-complete. I have some work to do inside over the winter and I still need to build a retaining wall and gravel the driveway if it ever dries up. But at least I can get...

    Shop lift opinions needed

    Concrete is very strong under compression loads, but it is relatively weak under tension loads. The largest concern IMO is the possibility of the anchor bolts pulling out or pulling up the concrete.

    Shop lift opinions needed

    "TORQUE" is your friend if you are talking about engines or wrenches. But with a lift bolted to thin concrete...not so much.

    New Toy

    LOL...not really. It is in need of some minor TLC, so I think I got decent deal. Pretty sure I can use it a year or two and turn around and make a buck or two off of it.

    New Toy

    I drug this home Saturday. Should be fun to play....ummm...work with around the place. I'm in the process of having a 40' x 40' shop built and will have driveway work to do as well as some other yard work and a retaining wall to build. This is my first tractor, so I can't wait to get started...

    Finally found one!

    After years and years of searching, I finally found it. This will be my next project...well...after building a shop. This truck fills all the "wants" that I had for an early sixties truck. It is a '63, so it's the last year for the wrap-around windshield and that sexy double humped dash, and...

    Four post lift

    Hello all, I've not posted in a while. Been really busy over the past year with life. Anyway, I am in the planning stages of building a new shop. I've been looking around on the internet at four post lifts, trying to work one into my budget. I'm just curious if anyone has any recommendations. I...

    2014 Chevrolet SS

    Looks just like every other cookie cutter sedan you see on the road these days. Like a friend if mine says...GM corporate needs to call in all the designers and ask the question, " Who all is responsible for the artistic design of this fine vehicle? Your FIRED!

    Culprit found?

    I hope to drive the car some this weekend. The temperature is only supposed to be in the 50's, so that won't be much of a heat-soak test, but it would flood regardless of temp. I will give an update.

    Culprit found?

    I installed a 1/2" thick phenolic spacer last summer and it did seem to help...a little. I would like to know more about the off road need and seat. How are they different from standard? Do they use the same float?

    Brake problem is driving me nuts! Help!

    Love the white '58...I would definitely want a black '55 Chevy sedan and a yellow '32 coupe to go with it.

    Culprit found?

    I have been fighting some hot start / flooding problems over the last few years. You know...drive the car thirty miles or so, stop for gas, get a Coke, and get back in to start after ten minutes of heat-soak and the engine acts flooded. Hold gas pedal to floor and it starts, puffing a little...

    Weatherstripping

    Hi Impala Steve, I am not 100% positive that I bought my windshield and back glass weatherstrip from the truckandcarshop. It's been several years back and my memory fails me...I bought from several of different companies. But they most always had the best prices. I am sure it was Steel Rubber...

    Old nasty exhaust manifolds

    I would also recommend six point sockets or wrenches only. Twelve points will likely only round the rusty old nuts/bolts.

    15 x 7 cragar rims. What tire size to run on our 61 belair 2dr. ???

    Hello there fellow '61 owner! When I bought my car it had a set of Eagle Alloys Torque Thrust knock-offs. They were 15 x 7's. It had 225/65r15 tires all around. They fit with room to spare, even after installing 2" dropped spindles in front and cutting the front coils for about another 1"...
