  1. Rumble seat/ rear glass question?

    wow thanks for pointing out the window drainage! I never would have thought of that on my own without driving through a rain storm at least..... My car is missing the tray/ drain hose.... If anybody has one in their parts pile I would be interested in purchasing... Many Thanks for the replies! Very helpful. ~d.b.o.l.t.
  2. Hello, I have a 1938 Chrysler with a rumble seat and roll down rear window. {going into the trunk area} The rear window regulator that rolls down the glass has a stop in it that leaves the glass sticking up about 3~4 inches above the bottom of the window channel when it's all the way down. So my question is does your rear roll down window do the same, or roll down out of sight? I took mine apart drilled out the stop and made a new one so it can roll down that extra few inches because it bugged me sticking up. Thanks For any replies ~d.b.o.l.t.

  9. Iola 2017

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone on this forum attended the Iola Car Show last summer? It is in Iola Wisconsin and is one of the best car show/swap meets that I have ever been to. That being said it was the first week in July and out of nowhere a brutal hail storm rained down quarter size hail on thousands of classic cars.... So I guess what I am wondering was anybody here caught in that storm with their classic car?
