MEMBERS Project Cars in Progress / TC's T/C...update..Aug 2012

Wow, you made that look easy! I also FINALLY read your posts on the grille upgrade.  I thought I'd really like the look, but after I saw it I'm not as revved up about it.  Stock is better, unless you replace the entire front clip. 

Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / Current Tires for Vintage Cars
« on: January 16, 2010, 03:45:58 AM »
Some of this tire stuff is beginning to concern me.  The manufacturers are discontinuing sizes like crazy.  I am investigating having a 15" wheel made to accept the 14" deep dish hubcap.  Even some of the 15" sizes are being dropped.  Let's hope they don't go the way of the 225 75R 14.

That's really strange. My Newport had the same thing when I bought it. It was aftermarket.  I removed it from the car.

Pic with the cat made my day! I needed a laugh. Both my cats would drive if they could.

I'm leaving at 6 AM thismorning, hope to get there around 1 PM this afternoon, staying at the Best Western like last year. I'll be in the Fury convertible!

Forgot about this post-I may actually get to this this Summer! It needs it.

Tech- -BODY / Discovery for '67-'68 fasttop

Great! No more searching for NOS for my '68 300 on that part.

Finally an update! As of May 8th, it's on the road and legal.  I had a complete 2 1/2" dual exhaust system with an H pipe and Magnaflow mufflers installed for a screaming deal.  I've put about 600 miles on it since then. I'm still installing underhood accessories, etc. 

Best news is it runs great and uses no oil. Not bad for a 90K '69 440 that I only lightly freshened (valve stem seals, timing chain, added windage tray, new pan seal, oil pump, water pump.)

I took it to Musclepalooza at Lebanon Valley on Sunday, but that's another story for another post.

I did the one in the Newport Custom at 100K. It was ready, but it could have gone longer. The convertible one is done as well. I'll freshen the engine in the New Yorker when I do it. 300 is a long term project but I think it needs one as the timing is a PITA.

Tech- - FUEL / Edelbrock or Holley

Good call, I'm very anti Holley. We'll see how the TQ on the convertible runs after sitting more or less the last 3 years.

General BS and Laughs / Your first car....
« on: February 19, 2009, 02:19:07 PM »
'77 Ford Maverick 4 door. Since it was free, I don't think I ever really owned it. It was a 302 V8 car and was pretty fast, but it was tired.

It's so refreshing to see that so many of us have the train interest as well as cars.  I recently contributed to a book on the town of 7 railroads, Palmer, MA.

The New Yorker needs one of those limiters. I can't get the gas guage to read right and that's the last item that needs to be changed. Why can't the '68 Chrysler dash be like the '68 Plymouth dash?

I'm starting a countdown. I figure in a month or so I will be ready to take it to have the exhaust done. I shoveled more snow today and removed another ice dam from the front roof.  Almost time for a roof on the house. Ho Hum.
