General BS and Laughs / LEAD EAST 2008
« on: August 31, 2008, 04:28:57 PM »
The annual 50's party in Joisey had some nice cars. Almost all of the Mopars that were in my previous posts were in attendance.  Here are the new Mopars I saw Saturday :









Check out the 5.7 Hemi in the Cuda!



There was a clone of George Barris' Kopper Kart...









This was a cool sign on an Anglia Gasser:



Hey...I didn't know Steve went .....he got too much sun I guess.....

Joseph Patrick Neilon (first name for my Dad and bro-in-law's middle name) weighed 8lbs, 1oz (Lea - do the metric conversions fer me pleeze) and is healthy. Dad and Mom are thrilled to be first time grandparents

The car-related baby items are about to be deployed in full force......gotta get  Mopar  toys so he doesn't turn into a Chebby baby

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / 73 Imperial Ignition Meltdown!
« on: August 14, 2008, 09:13:38 PM »

This is why my 1973 Imperial would occasionally not start.....melted epoxy in the ignition computer tells me it got a little hot under the collar.....







So I heated it up with a heat gun set on 1000 degrees F to show you what makes that little black box tick....



Not much there....maybe Steve or Bill can back-engineer this thing and build us some hotter set-ups

BTW, I swapped on one that Steve gave me and it started right up....

General BS and Laughs / Where I have been...
« on: August 10, 2008, 12:49:58 PM »





...for the last few weeks I have been on here sporadically because as ususal, the resto shop was late in getting their entry for the Pebble Beach Concours ready for upholstery.
Three of us put in some hectic time on this 1930 Cad-ill-ac V16 convertible coupe (with unusual "Pennsylvannia" vee windshield) while the rest of the shop's employees got in our way finishing the paintwork and assembly.

But it is done and on it's way now







The grey leather was custom dyed and grained in the original style, and the wool carpeting and headliner were a good match to it. There was a lot of stuff missing on this car that had to be made before the upholstery went on, and there were some major hurdles in the car's design that hampered putting trim items on (like brackets that stuck out or minimal room to tack stuff to) but it all worked out in the end.

General BS and Laughs / Look What Wandered Into My Shop
« on: July 23, 2008, 04:46:25 PM »
One of my all time dream cars











A supercharged 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk! Needs some new seat padding before it leaves for Florida. Hope my Silver Hawk looks like this someday



Even though the Studes look small, the Imperial looks lower next to it.
Steve's freshly repaired Saratoga is in the back there.

We are going to have to circle the wagons, men......this idiot "67 Madness" has ruined the DryDock with his political postings and now has some VERY harsh critics yelling for Scott to do something....won't be long before he shows up here.

We'll be ready for him and his ilk, right guys?

Moderators man yer posts please

General Mopar Discussions / Mopar Racing History Thread
« on: July 07, 2008, 08:48:03 PM »


This will be an ongoing thread for any historical footage of famous Mopar racing machines, so the young'ins can learn why our cars have ruled racing for so long

The Original Little Red Wagon was a racer, not a wheelstander. It turned out to be a real evil handling Factory Experimental racer, until Bill "Maverick" Golden was hired to drive it. He developed  wheelstanding into an art form.

Note the flag man starter and the simple open car trailers of the old days....
