  1. I've got a '64 'cuda and I can't imagine trying to turn my '41 at low speed into a tight spot with a wheel that small - I need all the leverage I can get.
  2. The Gathering of the Faithfull in Middleboro MA is a "celebration of vintage speed" and where you have vintage speed, of course you have flathead MoPars! It was a beautiful day today (not only because the P12 didn't break down on the way like it did the last time) and attached are pics of the vintage speedsters in attendance this group should like.
  3. Hope you have a speedy recovery, Paul.
  4. Great job - looking forward to another year of progress!
  5. I think the K would make a great long distance hauler - rock solid, dependable drivetrain and the weird dual cylinder front brakes were a memory in ‘64. There was a silver K in the back row of the neighborhood Chrysler Plymouth store when I was in high school- we thought “what a great demo derby car “ (forgive me, it was ‘71 and I didn’t act on that thought). I am sorry I didn’t pick up a nice buildable silver special ‘64 sport 300 I could have had for for scrap prices five years ago. Unfortunately I drive by that guys house one a week and rue that decision…
  6. Good to hear from you Nick - been wondering how it's been going for you. The flattie will only go so fast...crushing the go pedal won't wring any more out of it!
  7. During college breaks in the ‘70’s I worked as a draftsman in the facilities department for a manufacturing company. I worked out of one of the plant buildings and would joke around with a couple of the younger full time guys. One of them flipped used cars as a side gig, and he was driving a snazzy Lincoln Mark II at the time. He had a habit of parking as close to the building entrance as he could and making a bee line to his car at lunch time. One day I filled up the Mark’s clamshell door handle with machinist’s lay out bluing, and at noon we gathered in the shop and watched out the window as he opened the car door…..the look on his face as the gooey bluing oozed through his fingers was priceless!
  8. Glad to see you are posting and making progress, Paul. I am waiting with bated breath to see your attention turn to the Suburban after the buggy is done. Carry on, sir!
  9. So you're saying "Dog is my co-pilot." I'll go to the corner, now.
  10. Think you mean "tool Pooch"!
  11. Shorter and longer, you say...
  12. Airtemp's roots date back to the 1930's - ol' Walter P. wanted his new Chrysler Building to be air conditioned, so he put his engineers on it.
  13. If he gets one, Young Ed just scored a parts book for them!
  14. Just searched - 117 posts (now 118) containing the word “potato” - this is the only thread referencing a P15 (or any other car) as a “potato”
  15. You and your family experienced quite a rollercoaster with the little one; glad to hear of the positive outcome, and that you again have the opportunity to share once and awhile with us again. All the best to you all.
  16. I also share your taste in YouTube channels - I thought of Scotts "Will it Start" episode as well!
  17. This is as good a place as any to give a shout out to the creators/administrators of the P15-D24 /Pilot House Forum - I've had A and B body and Forward Look cars for decades and came late to the flathead MoPar party - this is the best, most searchable, most helpful forum of all, in my humble opinion!
  18. Well, having owned my '57 New Yorker since '78, I say go for it!
  19. Will do - I can say for certain that I intend to be back for the Syracuse National in July.
  20. Back when the National 55 began I was driving home from college late one night on the NYS Thruway- to protest The Man impinging on my rights I decided to double the “double nickel” - 110 mph induced serious valve float in the 318 of my ‘67 Coronet; backed off before I caught the attention of a Trooper in a Fury I. Last night my wife and I did the Boston to Syracuse run to her folks again - NY and MA pretty much give you 75 mph without earning a light show.
  21. Good to hear from you, Moose, I was wondering how far you'd gotten on the '54. Lookin' good - cool that your son is driving it!
  22. Hi Radar - glad to see you’re alive and kicking and still improving! “Road race” ready Pilot House, eh? Unsolicited aesthetic opinion to be taken well salted: leave the hardwood in the bed and the black plastic base on the shifter. It works with the the black and red interior color scheme. Now go cut some curves!
