    Score: New car -1, Plymouth +1

    Well, Tod, the Prius in the enclosed video probably does not get that sort of mileage. https://interestingengineering.com/video/this-modified-prius-easily-outdoes-a-dodge-challenger-srt-demon-in-a-drag-race

    Put My Dog Down Today...Been A Rough Day

    Did you or your vet discuss the possibility of a bowel obstruction?
  4. I've got a disassembled '54 C1, That part does not ring a bell with me. I don't know the history of your build but did it come in a pile of boxes? The reason I ask is that I bought a "kit" '37 Chevy coupe once and it came with extra parts that were not for the coupe.

    Odd plate?

    Maybe denoting gasoline rather than D for diesel? Only a guess from far right field.

    6 Volt Positive Ground

    I used to fool with British cars years ago. About 98% of electrical problems could be traced to bad grounds. Oh, yes, they might look good but corrosion has a way of creeping into the fastener and reducing the effectiveness. Since that learning experience I've come to check the grounds whenever there are problems. I am rarely disappointed with that philosophy. The 98% rate stands with old American cars, too.

    what are the rules cruise in/ car shows

    And you experienced the new philosophy at car shows. Not all, of course, but a lot of them. And it one of the big reasons that these shows participation is getting less and less. If they are too snobby to take your $15 then you made the correct choice. You were a lot nicer than I would have been and my parting suggestion would have been way more explicit than yours.

    '50 Dodge B-2 Series Stepside Truck Repairs

    First you need to adjust them up tight to center everything. Then back off the adjuster just enough to barely hear it drag as you rotate the tire. This is also a good way to check for out of round situations as you listen to the drag.

    front brake lines

    This is an excellent example of when to use safety glasses.

    Leave the drums as they are. Smooth is good.

    Exhaust manifold nut issue

    I would question the strength of the nut holding ability. If the diameter of the nut was correct but the thread pitch differed then running a tap through to correct the problem removed a lot of metal. For the price of the new nuts it would be a no brainer for me.

    Tractors

    That John Deere "D" model is a big tractor, all right. It appears this is a later styled tractor and probably made in the late 40's or early 50's. Deere made the "D" from 1923 to 1953 and it would weigh 7,500+ lbs. all propelled by a 501 cubic inch 2 cylinder engine.

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    I'd bet that if you took this car to the local car show it would not be 15 minutes before someone showed up and said that his brother-in-law had one of these in college--only that it was red.
