  1. Wanted, complete pair of park lights.

    1954 Plymouth. Dr’s appointment today, back-in the shop tomorrow. A new kit in the carburetor and I’m mechanically on the road. Work now is cosmetic so I can get it legal via CHP/DMV. Since my truck has a bad rod, we need a 2nd car. 

  2. I find it interesting how closely how closely The grills and auto body designs are so similar going back decades. My 53 Plymouth has the “teeth” so does the ‘53 chevrolet, etc. I can recall few break out of the box designs. I think the 49 Ford was one, the 56 Pontiac “Wide track”, American Motors unibody, and curved side windows, More recently the Mack Truck Dodge grills to name a few. What others occurred?

  3. Required parts to finish the Sportster back ordered until July 9, so with better knees, back on the Suburban and now will remain so until it is licensed to drive every day. It’s “ drivable “ as is, what remains is safety and cosmetically related. Sportster  is close also. Will tow the Sportster behind the suburban when I go to CHP and DMV. 

    Enjoy July 4!  




  4. Started to install the engine today. Late in the day, discovered the front engine mount was installed backwards and upside down. That raised the transmission nose by nearly two inches which made it impossible to fit in. Will resolve that and “bobs your uncle” it may go together.


  5. Update: most of the work has been on the harness. Since, a project, one off, car the harness had to be constructed in the car. That really pushed my limited knowledge but it’s done. Engine installation this weekend. Weather here now is 100+ through this entire week, 107 next three days!
