    On Facebook?? Which page, I saw there was a guy selling a whole 48 Dodge, I sent him a message asking if he would sell the trim, but he never responded

    I thought someone stole my 39 Plymouth Business Coupe, I caught this one out of the corner of my eye at the show, almost the same color as my 39, but then when I got closer I saw the outside mounted headlights and tail lights and realized it was a 37

    Now I understand why lead East is 5 days long, there is no possible way you could look at all the cars in a single day, or even two days, there was somewhere around 4,000 cars there yesterday , hopefully there will be almost as many today

    well another 50 Flawless miles in the book, back and forth to lead East yesterday, and heading back there in about an hour this morning, not a lot of Our Generation Mopars at the show, but a whole lot of Mopars at the show this year, good to see, there was one really nice 1937 DeSoto with a 5.7 Hemi in it, I have pictures on my other phone I just have to upload them

    just doing a little routine maintenance on the on the Dodge before I go to the cruise night tonight, checking the oil making sure everything's tight, I decided to check the head bolts, it's amazing my car had any compression and no leaks, the torque on all the head bolts were between 30 and 35 foot pounds, and some even less

    anybody know what this whoosimawhatsit is ???

    I'm not sure, but it does have some Rust spots inside, not to mention it's over a hundred years old, I'm not sure I would want to be eating anything from it

    anybody know what this whoosimawhatsit is ???

    I don't know if I'd make any friends, it appears to be galvanized, and would probably just taste like old metal LOL

    No problem Tim, and thank you everyone I wouldn't have known what it was either if it wasn't for you guys, I looked up just about everything I could think of on the internet including a flour sifter, we got a great bunch of guys here, and I knew that one of you would know what it was, and then after you guys figured it out I did some research on the internet and found out exactly when it was made and everything, I might just throw it on the backseat of my car and take it to the cruise nights with the rest of the antique stuff that I have in the car

    anybody know what this whoosimawhatsit is ???

    yep, it was invented in 1887, and it's called a conical key scoop, and it was used mainly in ice cream parlors between 1887 and 1920, my stepmother found it with a bunch of antique auto parts, I guess they just threw it in there because it was an antique it's pretty much in perfect shape

    anybody know what this whoosimawhatsit is ???

    LOL, well I guess it's not for working on cars then, I wonder what the heck it was doing with a bunch of antique car parts, maybe they were working on cars and making ice cream LOL
  12. My stepmother found it in the basement, along with a whole bunch of car parts, the little knob on the end spins the two arms that are inside the funnel, and I have no idea what it is, not even sure if it's for anything to do with cars lol

    there has to be another passenger side cowl molding somewhere, there were almost 700,000 d24's made between 46 - 48, I found four left sides so far LOL

    well another 40 mile round trip in the books yesterday without any issues, except running one red light LOL, tried my best to stop just couldn't do it, the light went green yellow red all in one movement, and I was doing 45 miles an hour, there shouldn't be a traffic light on a highway anyway LOL

    anyone running Lake pipes on their P 15 or d24

    I'm not putting the lake pipes on for sound, they would not even be hooked up, and as far as the sun visor goes, it is mounted the way it's supposed to be mounted, it is uniform all the way across if I pulled the middle down it would be squished looking in the middle and sticking up on the ends, it is a sun visor off an Old Hudson commodore, it is not adjustable, and it's open in the rear so it is very aerodynamic the wind just passes right under it
