Re: Mecum Today

Pinch welds are blacked out in the center but not on the lower rear quarters as I have underside shots of the car at MCACN when Mecum had it on display there. They never had the hood up when I was there though. But what wasn't mentioned in the Mecum write up is the dent / ding in the left fender and...

Re: Texas storms

I'd be trying to winch my Cougar on the roof... Cats don't like water. That's why I keep the Cyclone and Cougars separate. Don't need the wet cat smell in the garage. Cats stayed dry so far, we fared much better than many in the area or even our neighborhood. Rains has stopped or tapered off signif...

Re: Salt & Pepper’s Excellent Adventure (long)

Dave,

It's awesome that you could undertake such an adventure. Glad you were able to accomplish it with such a great pair of cars. Great to see you again in Tulsa and thanks for the pix of the SS car in Williamsburg.

Re: Eliminators on the Market (May 2017)

That 69 Boss E Cat at Mecum probably sold in the right range. Looking at it in detail lots of little things so-so on execution and multiple high $$ parts not there. Cloudy clock lens, wrong snorkle, 70 air cleaner, and non Ford distributor, that's what we can see. Also poor presentation in the pix d...

Re: 1970 Eliminator BOSS 302 4-Speed - Comp. Orange

I have struggled with commenting on this one as it is very well executed in many areas but there are details which miss and I was afraid commenting would distract from what is there.
