  • How your Stude hurts you?

    ok, I’ve got loose window channel, and window down on a bumpy road, elbow out...OUCH. A pinch from the door glass! Tightening up bolts on a PB booster OUCH. Hood pivot bracket sharp corner right into the scalp! Waxing the bottom back of rear fenders OUCH catch the sharp edge of the bumper!

      After 9 years with Josephine only phsycological hurts one after another...
      Maby she'a a witch? Hmmm... Her way of telling me that we aint ment to roam the roads for enternity?
      Had a car like that before; an ungratefull -64 SAAB, good in high speeds at small gravel roads but kept on breaking small stuff all the time, but Josephine hardly even let me drive her much until some awfull vibrations comes along & she goes back in the barn...

        Ok. Would you rather your wife, or girl friend, stand around while your working on it, whacking you with a Peach tree switch every time she thought you were going to be injured by the car????? Hmmmmmm? Seems to me that some of you might actually prefer this...............

          The last time I replaced the bushings of the A-Arm of my 1955 President, the jack slipped away just in the moment I want to install the bolt of the A-Arm and the A-Arm tried to brake my forearm. It hurt really much, but fortunately my arm was ok.

                  The "Tooth" of the hood and the corners of the trunk lid. On the positive side, I'm taller now due to the bumps.

                    I hope the jack stands were not the recalled Harbor Freight items........hummm, still have not checked my various stands to see if any are on the list......another darned winter job to do before the hobby auto working season is upon me! Sherm / Green Bay / 63R089

                      I am embarrassed to admit this, it was so stupid, but my car tried to kill me and nearly succeeded. A 55 K up on blocks, no way it could fall off, except it did with me under it. Eventually my wife found me and I was able to explain to her how to use a jack and get the car off me. Nothing broken but I was sore for a month.
