      Growing up I remember a car having two keys. One key would fit the doors and ignition and the other the trunk and glovebox. This car has an ignition key, a door key that fits both cylinders and a...

      A message needed to be sent that Michigan, for all its faults, isn't Florida.

      He didn't have a land line. He said he couldn't find his phone because he didn't ant to turn any lights on.

      Yes, very sad, but he'll likely spend far less than 15 years in prison.

      It's often the easy way out, blaming the victim and all. The jury didn't buy it, either.
    5. I don't think performance was the issue. The...

      I don't think performance was the issue. The extra weight of the 4 cylinders wasn't even offset by horsepower gain. The drive was for a higher number of smaller cylinders doing a better job through...

      Not at all. He killed her when all he had to do was keep his door closed. The tiny little girl couldn't even get past his locked screen doors. He had no reason to open his solid core locked inner...

      I believe the center two each share an exhaust port.

      Since I restored the turn signal switch what better place to store it than in its final resting place? One of the wiring harness bags contained the new turn signal switch wires. I tinned the end of...

      I believe you are correct.

      The work begins.

      From the condition of the interior and the horrible condition of the old wiring harness this car was a wreck. A lot of the insulation had fallen off the wiring and much of it had...
    11. Exactly.

      Exactly.

      I have friends following the project on FB. It's a lot easier to post groups of pictures there.
    13. I don't know that I've found it yet. I have a...

      I don't know that I've found it yet. I have a whole pallet of engine parts to pick up yet.

      The Zeyphr trim is different than the Continental, but the gauges are the same. I think they have...

      The only deadline is self-imposed. I'd like it to be done by next August so I can show it alongside the Ruxton at the show in St. Joseph we're on the BOD of.

      Today's treasure comes in the form of paper. The files I got contain all of the material and labor bills for what's been done.

      The first thing I found was a 1942 color chart. While not an exact...

      It's painted to look like rosewood.

      I spent a good part of the day sorting parts. I unboxed everything. I touched all parts. I pretty much know what I'm missing.

      Motor mounts and transmission mount. Both are available as...

      He passed on with a 100 car collection to people that don't want it. They're asking some high prices on the other cars, but no one else was interested in this project.

      Still no rear bumper.

      The two rolling bodies, two V-12s and the red car's hood are the only parts remaining at the warehouse.

      All of the stainless trim has been beautifully polished. Only two of the hub caps are usable...
