    1951 Plymouth/Dodge Gas Tank

    If anyone who has been here for a few years remembers Michael Warshaw, he is the owner of this company. If I remember correctly, he caused a lot of arguments with the members. Don't remember if he quit or was kicked out of the forum.

    Spring startup

    I parked my '37 Plymouth Coupe in my drive on October 18, 2017. Threw a cover over it. Last week I put a battery charger on it for a couple of hours. Then I cranked it over with the ignition off for about 30 seconds. Poured less than a spoonful of gas down the carb and waited a few seconds. Turned the ignition on, hit the starter pedal, and it sputter for a few seconds. Hit the starter again and it started right up. Took it for a 25 mile drive Saturday and it ran great. I live in Michigan.

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    I've looked at the photo and that's not ME and the Meadowbrook. Looks more like YOU and the Meadowbrook. Misleading title.

    Positive ground head lights

    I've purchased regular 6 volt seal beams at a local auto parts store. I've also bought 6 volt halogen bulbs from Rock Auto for half the price the local NAPA store wanted. They worked as well.

    It's Alive!!!!!

    It's alive!!!!! Started the '37 Plymouth today. Started on the 3rd crank. I parked the car in my driveway in the middle of October just threw a cover over the car. Left the battery in the car. So here is an 80 year old car that sat out all Fall and Winter in the weather with only a light weight cover over it, and it starts on y the third crank of the starter. All I did was pour a little gas down the carb. Didn't have to put the battery charger on. Now my 2005 Dodge Magnum with a Hemi motor, if if sits for 2 or 3 weeks without being started, won't start. Have to put a charger on it. I had only driven it 41 miles since the end of September.

    I'm Back

    Finally got out of the house today. It's been 2 weeks today since I got out of the hospital. Started speech and physical therapy today. Will be going 3 days a week. When I met with the speech therapist, She said she didn't see a need for me to continue seeing her. In her opinion, everything looks good. So now all I've got is physical therapy. Don't know for how long. Said they will do an evaluation after 10 weeks to see if I need more. Been having a lot of lower back pain when I was using my cane to get around inside the house. Today I used a walker and didn't seen to have as much pain. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning. will see how I do with the walker. If I'm feeling pretty good, and the weather is nice, Might try to start the Plymouth. Know I won't be able to drive it, but at least get it started.

    I'm Back

    On Dec 15th I went to hospital ER with a severe back pain. Had a serious spine infection. While there, they found a couple of other infections in my blood. Plus I got C-Diff. Since Dec 15th, I spent 116 days in the hospital (a few in IU). Plus I spent 22 days at a rehab facility. While at the rehab, the messed up my mediations, which sent me back to ER. So I had a total of 116 days in the hospital, and 22 days in rehab facility. With a total of 21 days at home. Spent Christmas, New Years, Valentines Day, St. Patricks Day in the hospital. Came home today. Pretty weak and not very mobile. won't be able to drive the Plymouth for a while. While in the hospital, I had 2 transfusions and they had to shock my heart once. Lost over 30 pounds and spent probable 99% of my time in bed. Just started to get a little mobile the last couple of weeks. Hopefully, now that I'm home, I'll start to get some of my strength back and get out and about. Plymouth hasn't been started since I parked it last October.

    The Importance of....

    When I got my '37, the previous owner had H70-15 wheels/tires on it. When I cranked the wheel all the way to the left, the inside of the drivers side tire would rub the drag link. When it was turned all the way to the right, the inside of the passenger side tire rubbed the rubber brake line. They had smeared grease on the inside of the tire where it rubbed. I replaced the wheels with stock 16" wheels and tires.

    51 Cranbrook gasser

    High and Mighty. I believe this is a clone of the one built by the original Ramchargers. It was brought to our 2008 Grand National Meet from the Chrysler Museum.

    59 Imperial roadster

    That is a local car owned by Murray Pfaff. A lot of the welding was done by Tom Langdon's son (whose wife Doni is editor of Throttle Gals Magazine). Murray is a designer who has done a lot of work for big name car builders. Doni has a nice custom '59 Chevy the she built. Did all the work herself (Body, welding, mechanical, etc.), except I think the painting. https://murraypfaff.wordpress.com/about/ http://throttlegals.com/

    Halloween Costume

    Mine was a hospital gown this morning. Had the 14mm kidney stone removed. They tried a few weeks ago by blasting it with sound, but it was too big to break up and only moved it. This time, they "went in" and got it (without cutting ). They had no problems getting it and I was home by noon. So far everything seems to be OK with no pain. Doctor wouldn't let me keep the stone. There goes the wife's new necklace.
