  1. Newly Acquired 1947 Dodge Special Deluxe!

    With that car that is the right thing to do.
  2. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

    Cool scenario.
  3. The end of our hobby?

    Read the article by Bob Lutz former head of GM via the link. http://www.autonews.com/article/20171105/INDUSTRY_REDESIGNED/171109944/bob-lutz:-kiss-the-good-times-goodbye?X-IgnoreUserAgent=1 Is the end of our hobby on the horizon? According to him it probably is! I think not so, too much of the economy would be impacted in so many ways what do you think?
  4. A nice one at a show this weekend

    Thought the group would enjoy.
  5. Fan Belt Replacement on 1948 Windsor

    Need photos of your car! We like to see projects.
  6. Steering wheel removal tips please

    Great info. Thanks.
  7. I have been helping a friend with his '38 Plymouth truck. We need to remove the Steering wheel to restore it. Any tips on getting it removed would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Thoughts About Upgrading To Radial Tires...Photos?

    I have a set of the Coker on my '48. Only thing I have an issue with is that they are hard to keep bright white.
  9. 1941 Chrysler C28 Wiring Harness

    I have used RIW and they are great. Easy to contact, good follow-up and willing to help with variations from car to car. I originally bough just the transmission harness and was so please I bought the engine and interior.

  11. Plymouth Truck

    Yes a 38. One owner family that was used on the farm. Low miles and being restored to as close to original as possible.
  12. Car shows

    Most of the shows around here charge $25 to enter, 90% are some type of fundraising event. All have awards that are typically voted on by the entrants. Cruise in's are no charge and are just a gathering of like minded folks. My club puts on one formal show or year. It has grown to over 500 entries with about 20k people viewing. They get to enter for free. We have food vendors and product vendors of all types that purchase booth space. We do charge $25 per car. Proceeds go to two small local charities and over years we have donated over 10k each year. We have had many discussions about awards and how many to give in an effort to attract more attendees. Even surveyed entrants. What we found was that we need to have multiple categories. I.E. Best MOPAR, best Chevy, best Ford by pre-war, post-war and modern muscle, trucks etc. Cruising the Coast draws over 8,000 registered cars and charges $90 for the week long event that has 5 venues with live music. Attendance grows every year. If you haven't been it should be on your bucket list. Bottom line is people pay to enter their cars in shows and as long as they keep showing up ...... Now, if you want to talk about crazy entrance fees, don't get me started on the likes of Barrett-Jackson and Mecum charging to enter to bid on vehicals they are getting paid to sell! My son works in the auction business specializing in antique tractors and they do not charge bidders to enter the auction grounds.
  13. Plymouth Truck

    I was over at a friends shop and he was working on this.....
  14. Let's see your other rides

    1973 D100 Adventure Club Cab. Another first for Dodge was the introduction of the Club or extended Cab pick-up in 1973. This is the one that was used in their advertising campaigns.
