  1. My 52 has metal stems and moving does the hub cap no good whatsoever
  2. I too much prefer to drive my older cars(1952 and 1980). More enjoyable and comfortable plus I can still fix most things that go wrong(which is rarely). My 2016 Traverse rarely gets used in the warm weather.
  3. i have never had a dealer ask about maintenance records on trade in. And as far as personal sale, I just offer to give the person my hand written record of what I have had done or did do. Usually no one cares much I guess. I do keep receipts as long as I own the car.
  4. I had a similar issue with an 83 Plymouth Reliant K clutch that they would not take care of. I have never bought a newer Chrysler vehicle again.
  5. Well I had the same problem with one side on the rear on my 52 Plymouth. I looked at it and thought, what the hell. I took my torch(all I have) and carefully and gently welded the cam to the bolt. I let it cool and it worked fine. That was probably 10 years ago.
  6. Try to avoid splitting the manifold if you can. A PIA to get them back together correctly.
  7. I as well hope you heal fast. Things like that seem to be one of the most aggravating issues of getting older.
  8. I would call Then and Now and ask them. In my dealings with them they were always helpful.
  9. I suspect the number of folks working on their own cars who actually replace the brake lines themselves is small and getting smaller. The main lines on our 2012 Kia Soul rusted out last year and rather than fix it myself I let the dealer do it. Cost wise not too bad and having done that kind if work several times in my life I did not miss the opportunity at all. I imagine not enough people doing it means the high turnover folks running today’s franchises don’t think it’s worth the space that they can used for more profitable flashy items.
  10. Mine is crushed down as well, I used this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CVYOAUY?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details
  11. I am a big slant six fan so as expected I really liked the Dart convertible.
  12. Beautiful car. We are glad to have you here. Of course, now you will get to answer questions as well.
