  1. I got the inverter to work (see previous thread) and I wanted to report the results: PROS: 1. Excellent performance/Excellent sound!! 2. Volume level is generous (there is a limit) 3. No longer need to charge and place battery pack in trunk 4. My original Mopar 802 still works great and it's fun to just listen to that on occasion when they're having a jazz/swing night on one of the few remaining AM stations. 5. It was only $59 6. It was simple to install in spite of my unique problem created by my setup. Most people would not have any issues at all. CONS: 1. Although volume level is generous, if I too push it really hard (hey, I get a little crazy now and then) it will cut out intermitantly (but that's cranking it pretty loud) 2. Cannot run laptop, cell phone, and I-Pod off power source. However, because I left the multi-plug setup intact, I can still throw a battery pack in the trunk and do any of those things. 3. I know there was a third con, but I just can't think of it right now. Must not have been that bad. LOL! Hope that helps anyone considering this type of setup. David
  2. Nick Desimone was nice enough to email awards pictures from the banquet following the Pacific Grove Summer National meet.
  3. Just received pic from awards banquet at POC meet

    Haha... Essentially, yes! My wife, Lydia, was with me with me at the event and all she could say was "Damn! We just got those things out of the living room!!!" LOL
  4. Opinions please

    I like the look of the red and as others have said, nothings going to make that butt look small. Be proud of the junk in the trunk!! It's what gives that Dodge its character! You don't want another Ford or Chevy!!! Love it!!!!!!!
  5. Some pics of an original P15 interior

    Great example of a correct interior for a Battalion Beige P15. The welting on the seat is the pinstriped wool, the hogs hair is brown and the solid wool is the correct taupe. There were variations, but this is the most common scheme for the beige car.
  6. Rims...Help

    Just a note: The stock rims for a P15 came in either 15 inch 1946, 1947 late year, 48 and 49 or 16 inch early 47 models.
  7. Golden State POC Meet, Pacific Grove CA

    Yes! I was grinning ear to ear with my 2nd place considering Mark was 1st. Of course, I knew from the get-go that Mark had it in the bag and deservedly so. Really hope I can make Kalamazoo. K-A-L-A-M-A-Z-OO.... I got a girl.... in Kalamazoo.... Actually I have one right here in Santa Maria, but I'll bring her with me
  8. Golden State POC Meet, Pacific Grove CA

    Thoroughly enjoyed the meet and it was great to see Mark's 41 take 1st Place! I remember when he brought just the chassis to Santa Maria. I was amazed then at the meticulous attention to detail. Seeing the final product was even more amazing. Great work on a great car and thanks for the videos! Entertaining and informative. Congratulations!

    ...and they provide excellent instructions. Was very easy to install. Just be sure and take lots of digital pics of the original before taking it out and it's a no-brainer putting the new one in since Y n Z uses all the same patterns and colors as the original. BTW, their wire has modern insulation which is then covered in their cloth braiding. Very nice product, but of course it is expensive so not for everyone. Best of luck whichever way you go!

    Purchased it several years ago thinking I was going to buy another P15. I didn't. The harness is for a 12 volt setup. If you're interested, contact me directly via email. fortyseven.plym@verizon.net David

    This Richfield gas station was restored by the city of Coalinga, CA

    ... where, I'm told, illicit activities take place lol. It's too bad because the day I shot this pic, a Studebaker Dictator that normally parks there was gone.

    This is Benjamin Foxen's home (about 5 miles from my home) where Foxen met with General Fremont and lead his troops over San Marcos Pass, thereby bypassing the Spanish forces at Gaviota Pass. The Americans were able to march into the Presidio in Santa Barbara (then capital of California) and defeat the Spanish army without a shot being fired.

  15. P15 Turn Signal Indicator

    Marty, everything was just placed on loosely in that picture for a test. As you can see, there are wires hanging loose and no flooring in yet and the steering wheel isn't even bolted on yet.

    Here is the email I received from the General Manager: Dear Mr. Maxwell, I have created a block of rooms for your group titled Golden State Region Plymouth Owners Club. Please have your guests call in and identify themselves with this group in order to get the group room rate. With regards to your reservations you listed on your e-mail I have entered each of these for the dates indicated. The corresponding confirmation numbers are Amos 498297, Coady 498299, Desimore 498296, Wilson 498300, and Jordan 498298. All reservations are set as indicated on your list. Please call me with changes or cancellations. Email me directly at fortyseven.plym@verizon.net if you have a problem.
  17. OT: California P15-D24 Owners/Members

    I spoke with the General Manager. Turns out he owns a 1969 Plymouth!! He has offered us a discounted rate for Sept 17th and/or 18th of $109 per night. If you would like a room reserved, please contact the Santa Maria Inn at (805) 928-7777 and let them know you are with the Golden State Region Plymouth Owners Club. We will have our meeting Saturday following a cruise up to Pismo Beach. You can book a room for Friday, Saturday or both at that rate. Hope to see you there! David
  18. P15 Turn Signal Indicator

    ...factory original options. Yours is correct, however, the Plymouth would have been painted brown to match the steering column and center of dash.
  19. OT: California P15-D24 Owners/Members

    ...and we're still trying to get a better estimate on the number of rooms needed and how many nights. I'm trying to get a block of rooms reserved for Fri and Sat night Sept 17th and 18th. I live here and don't need a hotel, but I'm actually considering staying in one of the historic rooms. So far, excluding myself, I only have 4 rooms committed for Fri and 2 or 3 for Sat. Several people have indicated they are driving in and out Saturday and won't need a room, but many haven't responded or are waiting to hear about others responses. If everyone waits for the next person, it's gonna be real difficult to get the prices down. Please, if you're planning on attending and staying at the SM Inn Fri/Sat or both, let me know ASAP. You can email me at fortyseven.plym@verizon.net Thanks and hope to see you there! David
  20. My 2nd 1947 Special Deluxe

    Did the baseball bat come with it? lol:)
  21. is this only a dodge part or is it plymouth aswell?

    I have one of these. The Dodge is larger, has the wrong angle stem and will not sit flat on the surface of a Plymouth dash.
  22. OT: California P15-D24 Owners/Members

    I will be talking to the SM Inn tomorrow about room rates for Sept 17th and 18th for those planning on joining us for our annual meeting and cruise. It would help a lot if you let me know your are planning on attending as the room rate should get better the more rooms I ask them to reserve. Thanks! David

    OK... I got feedback from the Golden State Region members and from several here on the forum. Here's the tentative plan pending contact with the hotel: 1. Meet headquarters will be the Historic Santa Maria Inn, in... you guessed it...Santa Maria, CA. Pismo Beach is approx 19 miles north. I called a few places in Pismo and, as you can guess, they're already booked for that weekend. This is OK because.... 2. The cruise from Santa Maria to Pismo via Guadalupe, Oceano, AG is scenic and pretty quick. 3. We should be able to secure a nice meeting area at the Santa Maria Inn. A. Meet at the Inn Saturday B. Caravan to Pismo via route above C. Enjoy sites and bikes... vintage and new D. Cruise back to Inn for club meeting E. Sunday Breakfast at the Inn or optional site to be determined F. Optional Sunday activities to be determined. More info to follow as details get worked out.
  24. OT: California P15-D24 Owners/Members

    Hi Tod. I was looking for a little feedback first. I think the Pismo area is probably already booked pretty solid. I think the Santa Maria Inn may be the place to stay and then take the back way into Pismo. The drive is scenic and pretty short. About 14 minutes. Even Santa Maria will fill up fairly soon so we do need to make a decision on this pretty quick.
  25. OT: California P15-D24 Owners/Members

    Hi everyone! Haven't been around for awhile, but heard there was interest in meeting in CA. We in the Golden State Region POC are setting the date for our annual September meeting. As always, some will have conflicts with just about any date we pick, but I'm thinking that Sept 18-19 would be great for a couple of reasons: 1. It seems to be a date most can meet and 2. It's the date for the annual Pismo Beach Motorcycle Classic! This event commemorates the 1929 rally in Pismo from the famous photo by W.E.M Rolly. I plan on driving my P15 up for the club meeting and riding my Harley there for the reenactment photo on the 19th. How many would be interested in this event and/or date?
