  1. I put one up recently that I purchased from Harbor freight. It was ( with the cupon ) $199.99 and it's a 10 x 17. The brand name is Cover Pro. I did a couple of extra things when I put it up that may not be required at all. I added an extra tarp between the frame and the top and slid some of that extremely light foam insulating board in between the tarp and the top. I also opted for some of the screw anchors from the pet section that are meant to tie and stake off a dog. It came with anchors but these worked better. I put this up to store a body in out of the weather. This week we had very strong winds, it's done fine. Pretty happy with it, I would buy another. For no more than I gave for it if it lasted 6months I would be happy, I think it will last much longer than that though.

    Junkyard Photos

    I took my son often to many junkyards off the beaten path when he was growing up. He told me recently that was the coolest thing he remembers as a kid and was so fortunate to have been able to see all the old stuff. He's a gearhead now himself, loves vintage autos and is a pretty darn good mechanic. Which is unusual for this generation. We had fun, it was always like a treasure hunt.

    I enjoyed Bob and Coopers adventures over the years. I will include him and his family in my prayers.

    `I talked to him back in May, he was really focused on a neat BSA Gold Star. I think he was leaning tword the wheeled hobby.

    I never participated in or Facebook till I changed jobs in April. I had an account for about a year before that I only used for the market place. When I left my old job my buddies wanted to keep in touch and it seemed like a good tool for that. I guess it has been, but my biggest use is still the market place.

    Gone but not forgotten

    I sure have learned a lot from that car! Of course I mean from the step by step pics that were recorded through the build. Like mentioned above, glad a forum member has purchased it.

    I have vented over this often. I have scored some awesome deals on craigslist and some I've wondered WTH happened? I guess more often than not it's worked out well. I have discussed several times in the past how on Craigslist if it's listed with an Email only they will never respond. The only time I had a response was when I bought 2 welders and a shrinker/stretcher last fall. The guy outright lied, it was pretty obvious when I was asking about the machines but I was still pretty sure I could come out. I was able to repair both for less than $150 bucks. The machines are probably worth $1500 a piece. I have done well on Facebook market place. I rarely ever see any Plymouth parts our era there but I have seen several cars for sale at reasonable deals. Bought lots of AMC Jeep parts there. Vintage tools and machinery galore!

    I really don't see this happening...ever. Some things just take time and are worth the wait.

    How about pretending to steal their car or impounding it over simething stupid? I could see me doing hard time over something like this.

    clutch fork return spring

    Mine was intact when I was working on this area of the car but it was almost worn in two. I took it to NAPA that had a shadow board their that matched up common springs. I guess I should have posted my info or made note but I didn't. Anyway hope this helps.
