    Why is it true?

    Was walking thru the swap meet area last summer at the Street Rod Nationals in Louisville early Saturday morning and when they played the National Anthem everyone stopped, removed their hats, turned to face the distant flag, put their right hand over their heart and was total silence. I paid...

    Question, what would you do?

    They initially sent the correct part that their ad on ebay said would fit. The part did not fit even though their ad said it would. After checking and measuring other tanks in their warehouse they found the hole size was wrong and gave me another number to order. That is why I felt the tank...

    It is one of their affiliate companies.

    Question, what would you do?

    Finally after a bunch of phone calls, few emails and a post on their Facebook page I finally got a prepaid mailing label for free return shipping of the gas tank. Initially they said they'd pay for the shipping label but have to deduct $25.00 for the call tag. ?????? I just wanted it over and...

    1962 409 Biscayne

    Seems any plate with 409 on it is hard to find or really expensive when you do find one. Nobody seemed to want these on eBay a while back but they are close enough for me. Dennis

    Question, what would you do?

    Just seems like the way to do things, old school upbringing maybe. Dennis

    Question, what would you do?

    Thanks for all the replys, I'd gladly split the shipping to be fair. EBay has made it hard for a small seller to sell and make anything and realize it's difficult to make sure every part is an exact replacement part. I'll call again today and see if they will split their shipping cost to get it...

    Question, what would you do?

    Really would like to work it out fairly for both of us, I'd still like to be able to possibly get parts for the Impala from them and hate to be labeled a bad customer. Dennis

    Question, what would you do?

    My original tank had the larger opening, I thought initially I was going to use my original tank and got new lines and the pump locally. When I dropped my tank down to get to the lines behind it a small leak appeared so I ordered the new tank separately. I thought initially the local dealer...

    Question, what would you do?

    Got a question about an eBay purchase. Wish it concerned my 62 Impala restoration but that is progressing fine although slowly. I am redoing my 98 Z71 short bed Chevy pickup and put new fuel lines, pump and tank on it. Have the bed off it so everything was easy to get to. Looked at a lot of...

    STREET ROD NATIONALS

    Yup, that was them. They didn't look like a matched set. They were the pewter color but it looked like I saw some red paint near an edge where it was scratched. He said he'd had them for 40 years and was only selling since he had other sets. They didn't have any dents and asking price was...

    STREET ROD NATIONALS

    We were there Thurs, Fri and Sat. Got to see a lot of early 60's Chevy's. Got lots of pics and will try to get them uploaded. Met the fella parked along the road with the 409 64 Impala. Said he also has a few 62 409 cars and also either owns or did own the Zintmaster (maybe not correct spelling)...

    62 Impala sail panel repair

    I checked and the sail panels look pretty good on my parts car. You mentioned a roof? The roof on this car is pretty good. Not sure what all your needing. This is a two door Impala. Dennis

    62 Impala sail panel repair

    I can check my parts car and see how both of those areas look. I don't think I'll be needing anything from those areas and can cut them out for ya. I'll get pictures tomorrow if you want. NDennis

    Metal pieces under door trim

    Are the metal pieces that are under the interior front door trim that we need to save when having new door panels made the same on 62 and 64 Impalas? A few days ago a fella pulled in the driveway asking about my 62 Impala parts car sitting beside my shop and was looking for parts. He said he...

    Thompson 2014

    Would really like to join in the fun but we have already made plans again for the Street Rod Nationals. Hate to miss this once in a lifetime gathering of 348/409 cars but can't swing both trips in one year. Will really look forward to the next get together closer next year. If I get really busy...

    Thompson 2014

    We just got back a bit ago. Saw one red 62, no one around but ended up being a small block with a tunnel ram, nice looking car but notfa 409. Did see a 55 with 348 written on the front fender but never saw the hood up. Talked to quite a few others and after mentioning we mainly went to watch the...

    Parts from my HAMB haul

    Thanks, I'll try that on the motors. Does look like there is a lot to bite ya when moving. Mine is a two door Impala, the two doors I mentioned are for a four door. I do have a lead on a 62 and a 64 possibly SS at a local old junkyard. I'll be sure to get the interior panels for the metal if...
