    Welding helmets, what's good?

    I recently bought an Iron Man helmet. Very nice helmet, but one drawback. There is no way to attach my 1.75 diopter magnification lens on the inside. That is important with old eyes.

    Anyone have a picture of the single Z11 shipped to Iowa?

    In 1964 a friend bought a new 64 Ford Galaxie 500 and it had a reverberator. It sounded good, kinda gave it a stereo effect. That was the first I had ever heard of one. I went to the Chevy dealer to get one for my 64 Impala. They had never heard of one. I ended up buying one from the Ford...

    How far above the crossed flags on my 63 fenders do I put my 409 emblems?

    I "think" my 64 Biscayne also has the emblem behind the tire, but I can't take a quick look, it is still in Wyoming at Jardine's.
