    Heartily agreed. You hit the nail square on the head.

    And I'll add that the Subject titles could often use better description. I've seen titles like "What do you think?" Or, "I don't know." It...

    I'm about 165 miles mostly south, slightly west of Ridgecrest (Ventura County). We only felt a slight rolling motion. My son who was lying on the couch had to tell me there was an earthquake. While...

    The film has a significant resemblance to a Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. Obviously they are selling the brand and history. There is a lot of production value there. Your "chance" is well taken....

    Not an expert fabricator (but thank you for the compliment :)), no brother in law with shop access, but I did find a decent, rebuilt 700R4 (looked under HUNDREDS of cars during many, many trips) at a...

    Social Media is like billboards posted down roads not many people travel. Or, if they do travel the road, they don't bother to see. The sadder side of social media is that many participate with the...

    Not to insult 1960 lark 4 door owners but for what reason would this car have been in a Harrah's Collection (especially in 1984)? Likely it came with a package deal or was donated and promptly sold....

    Being a "car guy" before I even had a licence (early 60's now) I've never taken a car to a shop for work. At least for me that would negate the reason I'm a "car guy." I realize that perspective is...

    A very well done video! My wife's family has been in SF since 1850. Her uncle was among a select group when he drove his period correct car across the bridge during the 50th anniversary observance.

    One of my all time unimpressive Craigslist ads was some kid posted a horrible night time picture of his car outside a 7-11.. The text read, "Think-in of sell-in my car. Hit me up." That was it.

    From what I have seen on You Tube China USE to take all the plastic we could give them. And now they have little need. So, as someone already said it might end up in the land fill anyway. As it is...

    I drive what might be the equivalent of 60's-70's Rat Rods - less the flat black paint. Mechanically I get them running "decent." Internally I'll put in the indoor/outdoor black carpet and maybe swap...

    I'm curious, is it typical when an auto manufacture stops making cars to have such a significant surplus of parts? And, if not, why was it the case that Studebaker did? Their numbers were smaller...
