Re: 1968 Std Sold at Mecum

For me part of the enjoyment is wrenching it on just as much as driving but not everyone sees it that way and would rather just buy it and drive it. I think everyone is right if you factor in parts and labor into taking a $2,000 project car and turning it into that clean of a car your spending at le...

Re: Factory tie down brackets on rear of car

As a technician at a couple dealerships throughout my career I have done tons and tons of PDI inspections which is when items like these would be pulled off and tossed. I sometimes wondered if those parts would be worth something 30,40,50 years from now. If only we could see into the future to know ...

Re: Free LED headlights for three lucky people.

Are there any requirements for the car besides year? As in overall condition etc. How wide of a shot are they looking for? For example my car has all the paint work and trim done but roller wheels and tires along with no glass in the car. I could get a great front end shot with the head lights but i...

Re: Lost 2 cougars today

Lets face it to us gear heads our cars are just as much of a memory as anything else you hang on too. Hopefully you have enough insurance to he...

Re: Old actuators worth anything?

Good to know. I will probably send mine in for some core credit at some point. I wont need them and likewise on not having anything special about my car to worry about holding on the the original parts. I dont have the space to kick them around for the rare chance the next owner might want them but ...

Re: 68 front marker light lenses

Thanks bill, I’ll have to give them a call next week to inquire about them. With the way the inside of the lense is molded it’s pretty much impossible to polish like the smooth outside. It’s funny what parts you think will be fine until there is fresh paint on the car! Quickly makes those “good enou...

68 front marker light lenses

Anyone making reproductions of the front marker lenses in the fenders? I have not been able to track down anything but used down in my searches. Most of the used ones are not much better then what I have. Mine are pretty cooked but and Ive polished the lenses to make them look half way decent but th...

I need to start making plans now to make it out there at least once in my life, next year...and shoot the shi# with everyone.
agreed. I would love to actually roadtrip my car up there for the event, or at the very least trailer it and cruise around locally.

Re: Hat trick (in a good way!)

Dont think the issue was the shock comment, It was the dig with the critter creek comment which didnt have much place in the conversation. I do appreciate the shock numbers. I will need these one day and I had no idea they where different until seeing all the threads here. Its nice to know we have o...
