Re: Pricing advice

If you are going to get it running you will be investing some money to do it right, but if you do and you keep the receipts to prove you did it right it might pay you back. Drain the oil and any remaining coolant and refill. Top up the transmission and power steering. If the transmission fluid smel...

Re: Cougars on Barn Find Hunter

Someone sent me a link to that this morning. Very cool! I sent Alex a text inquiring about the Eliminator and he messaged back right away. Busy working building houses, so I'll have to hit him up another time.

Re: Pricing advice

I think it would sell higher than those figures(4-5K) on the east coast? All we have to chose from is rusty junk! If I had that car in Ohio ,running and driving. I would start at 7k! Probably right. If it were mine, I would put some elbow grease into it ~ do some detailing, wash / wax, general appe...

Re: WCCC Boss 302 Eliminator Video

All I can say is that it is on my "to do" list. So much want to watch it! Going to have to split it up into several sittings though :-(

Thanks Don, Andrew, Dave, and WCCC gang!

Re: Pricing advice

Wow, I think it looks great. I'd say $5k all day.

By the way, nice "personal protection devices" in the trunk! I'm reminded of Uncle Buck, and gnats, for some reason.

Eliminators on the Market (June 2018)

Dash is finally going back together, and the brakes are coming along ~ rebuilt the proportioning valve, changed out the brake hoses (they were all still the originals - yikes!), and the front brake lines. Still need to bleed bleed bleed them brakes, and get the export brace installed, then install m...

Re: WCCC LED taillight bulbs worth their weight in gold!

Unfortunately for the 1970 you have to buy all that is laid out in the chart, no go arounds... https://ebayimages-westcoastclassic.netdna-ssl.com/plasma/plasma_compatibility_0717.jpg It is a good investment for the safety factor alone but it does not take too many failed signal switches to make the...

Re: WCCC LED taillight bulbs worth their weight in gold!

Ok, lets say I want to start doing this conversion on my '70 a little bit at a time, as budget permits. Where should I start if my initial goal is to reduce current loading on my turnsignal switch, in order to preserve the life of that fragile little bugger? What would I expect to see / how would th...

Re: Couple "issues"...

Ok, so I got into it with my speedo cable this weekend. Pulled the end off the trans and gave the wire a little turn. I was able to get the cluster end of the cable to fully seat... but that little clip still just would not "catch" properly. Decided that it is going to have to be "good enough" for n...
