Re: Gas Backsplash When Filling Tank

I've had the same problem over the years, ever since they went to the vapor recovery nozzles. Same with my '63 Falcon, '68 Cougar, and '70 Mustang. The best thing I've found to do is first, pull up on the right-hand side of the pump. Put the nozzle in such that it and the hose are parallel to the bu...

Re: I had to work on that door anyway...

Ask the adjuster about having the whole car painted. Hagerty specializes in classic cars, so they might understand better than a regular insurance company how with a custom paint job, there is no place to stop and have the paint really match. Even if it matches at first, the new paint will fade diff...

Re: I had to work on that door anyway...

That is sickening. That should have been, "Dude! I'm so sorry! I completely effed up your car!"
Hope Daddy has some dough to help out. That's going to be way more expensive
than she can imagine. Good luck and kudos for staying calm. Do you have uninsured motorist
coverage on your policy?

Over-restored? Think factory recall.

Thank you for offering to make two runs. Please do, if it isn't too much trouble. :wall:

Re: 1968 XR7G 36x48" Mercury Dealer Showroom poster reprints for sale

May I register a request to fix the typo? With all of your effort to mitigate the ravages of time, why not correct the oversight of some copy editor from years ago? How incredibly stupid is it to have the name of the car misspelled? Anyone with even a hint of OCD will shudder and vibrate every time ...

Impressive work.

A poster just of the car would be cool, too.

Re: XR7S and XR7S Inspired Taillight Bars

Just to note if it hasn't been already, but the vertical grill bars on the XR7S are chrome. I'm not sure which would look better, polished rears to match the front horizontal bars or black ones to match the black GT-E taillight covers. Steven - If you go ahead and make these, which would be great, i...

Re: The August 2018 Ride of the Month is Ted Taylor's (68gurney) 429 powered '70 Standard

Congrats to Ted and Bill! For once, the photos do not do this car justice. I don't think the late evening lighting, which usually makes any photo better, works with the Augusta Green color. And somehow the car looks more menacing in person.
Anyway, a very cool cat and a great writeup!
