  1. What some of us got up to in England, today

    This year, we were at the National Museum of Computing, Bletchley Park. We're currently talking to suitable venues for 2018 and will announce details as soon as we can. Hope you'll be able to join us.
  2. What some of us got up to in England, today

    Graham was hoping to bring his DeSoto business coupe but didn't make it. Dave will also hopefully have his finished for next year's meet. There's a T&C that's local to our meet but the owner is usually away at this time of year. Don't know of any woody wagons in the UK, though.
  3. What some of us got up to in England, today

    You'll be guest of honor, Mark. Looking forward to it.
  4. What some of us got up to in England, today

    Yes, all left hand drive. There are a few right hand drive cars over here (originally supplied to Africa) We also say 'The States'... it's almost like we speak the same language!
  5. What some of us got up to in England, today

    Yes... 11 Plymouths, 3 Chryslers and a Dodge. Also a few owners whose cars couldn't make the trip. And some 'guest' classic cars, too.
  6. The 3rd Annual P-15 Picnic was a great success. We even welcomed our first overseas visitor... a P15 owner from Holland who is planning to bring his car next year. It was a good day out...

    When the vacuum system works, it's sweet. I shot this today...
  8. Chrysler 1941 parts needed!!"

    Someone in the UK has been advertising 1941 Chrysler parts from a car he's breaking. I will try to track down the advert. Edit: Found it. PM on its way.
  9. Hi Robin

    Do you have any photos of your Plymouth's vacuum system from the firewall forward?

    I am looking for the correct way to connect a vacuum booster fuel pump to the system

    Thanks

    Hope all is well with you

      Hi Ward,
      Good to hear from you.
      I hope this picture will help. It was taken a few years ago when I had a George Asche intake on the car.
      My car's at the shop at the moment, so I can't get another for you but, as you can see, there's just a vacuum pipe from the intake that goes straight to the top valve in the dash.
      The piece in the line is the factory non-return valve.
      Best of luck,
      Robin
      PS  Do you know that Mark Duggan and I have set up a facebook group for P15 Convertible Owners? It'd be great if you could join us on there...

  10. This Evening's Cruise...With Running Updates

    D25 gravel pans are smooth and the bumpers wrap around further than on the P15. The bumper irons are different too... If you look closely, you'll see an extra pair of bumper bolts visible at the front. As the blue car is in Canada, perhaps the bumpers were swapped at some time, using parts that were available locally? For reference, here are a couple of pictures of a D25 coupe, here in the UK...
  11. This Evening's Cruise...With Running Updates

    Thanks for sharing your adventures. It's interesting to see that the P15 is fitted with Dodge D25 bumpers and gravel pans. I wonder if those are original to the car?
  12. Canvass Visor?

    Alan, in the UK, just told me he found one of these in the trunk of his P15 Business Coupe when he got it. I haven't seen it, or any pictures, but it's clearly a period item. If I get more info I will post it on this thread.
  13. Miss Belvedere headed Illinois auto museum

    Great story about the license plates. A quick google search threw up this eBay listing... http://www.ebay.com/itm/1957-Visit-Oklahoma-Semi-Centennial-Front-License-Plate-Tag-MINT-/162530284719?hash=item25d78f54af:g:of4AAOSw53NZARsh

    Here's a DeSoto that was in a Swiss yard in 2013. And a couple of Plymouths in Ireland... The first is a picture from a The Seaflower trawler funeral in 1968. The second is a car that was for sale in 1983 but, sadly, does not seem to have survived.
