    Interesting photos I have run across.

    It's a left hand drive so I doubt Scottish/Irish. I've lived in Scotland for years and never heard the police called :Polis.

    An Immodest Proposal (with apologies to Jonathan Swift)

    go for it. Just get a car that has been recently gone over. Rebuilt engine would be a big +. On your list I don't see a reason for electronic ignition or 12 volt conversion. Just me. The rest I have done to my coupe except for the shoulder belts and all my driving is on country roads.

    Happy Birthday Marines.

    Happy Birthday Marines! The photo below is of me in 1974. Doesn't seem like 44 years ago. I bought a T shirt last week that says "Only 2.3% of the American population has served in the armed forces. Less than 1% has served in the United States Marine Corps. The Few, the Proud the Marines."

    Wide-Whitewall Radial Tire Choices

    I have run Coker radials www on my coupe for a year now. I'm really happy with the way the car steers and tracks. No problems yet.

    steele rubber bushings

    I just copied one of the originals that was still mostly complete. I do believe that there was 3 per side. It's been 3 years or so. It took me awhile to realize how they went together as well. I finally found a drawing in the parts manual that did a good enough job of showing it.

    Disc brake convert 48 desoto

    Rusty Hope, Scarebird and AAJ are the 3 that I know. I used the last two on my 47 Dodge. Very happy with both and no problems with either.

    My First Car -- P15 1947 Plymouth Deluxe

    Here's a video of the final wrapped bumper. The guy that I had do it said the wrinkles are because the cheap wrap that I bought would not stretch. Look at the chrome bumper guards and the bumper and you see the contrast.
