  1. Who Is Actually Driving Their Vintage Mopars?

    I alternate in the summer between my 52 Cranbrook and my 1980 Volare depending on where I am going and what I am doing when I get there. My 2001 Astro gets the summer off unless the weather is really crappy. I try to do any maintenance on the Astro and other family cars while I have the extras to drive. I take summers off so I usually am working on something.
  2. Sheriff just left, another mandatory evac tonight...

    Although not the same at all, my son lives near Boston and they are getting killed by snow. Three big storms this week alone. Supposed to be about 2 feet when this latest one is done. Weather is just nuts. Glad to hear you are all OK.
  3. Easy and Inexpensive Exhaust Flange Repairs

    i used something like this on my 2001 Astro: https://www.ebay.com/i/152879906941?chn=ps

  6. My truck at Cheatham Street Warehouse

    Obviously the band prices were from when you bought the truck new.
  7. 51 T&C Station Wagon Build Card~~ Boat?!

    Welcome to the Forum As an owner of a 52 4 door I really appreciate yours.
  9. 1954 Chrysler Trim Clips? Help!

    Try this guy. He had clips for my 52 Plymouth. http://www.fatfenderedrelics.com/welcome.html
  10. Kick panel resource

    I made mine out of masonite.
  11. Cold cold, John Keats.

    I hate you. +2 here in NE Illinois. High today will be about +8
  12. New Year Resolutions

    It took me three years to fix my heater and and two to finish the brakes. So i don't think my resolutions are unrealistic
  13. Starting my truck in cold weather

    I can remember my Father struggling to start his old Plymouths in bitter cold like today in Illinois. Took the battery in each night, ran light bulb out to the engine to try to keep the carb warm and often had to walk the 2 miles to work at 6 AM anyway. This was in the early to mid 60's. And the cars from the late forty's to early fifty's. Although admittedly he wasn't one for much in the way of maintenance.
  14. Out of the ordinary Christmas gifts.

    Nice travel tool box
  15. Cold start problem Weber conversion?

    When I push the throttle on my stock 52 the mechanical accelerator pump squirts gas right away. I think that Plymouthy is on target here. Make sure everything is up to spec. It took me a long time to get my Sission choke to work correctly.
