      I have an acre of heavily landscaped property, a house, two commercial buildings, 9 cars and a bazillion other hobbies. I'll not lack for things to do.

      Yeah, that Duesenberg is just jam-packed with electronics.:facepalm: Seems you've totally missed the point by a country mile.

      Personally, I don't think many of today's cars will be collectible due to the lack of electronic support. Too many computers and too much wiring will be the doom of them, not age.

      You would think...

      I have the limo to finish. To be honest, I doubt that I'd do another for someone else. Especially with a timeline like this. This has to be done by August. I'm 62 and really do not need to work. In...

      With the body work complete it was time to apply a coat of base. It was explained to me that the catalyzed coating seals the various substrates of self-etching primer, body filler, lead and steel....

      I just met Moray at the Lincoln design studio and discussed finding a Mark II for him. Truly a gear head. Ford seems to be in pretty good hands.

      Well, I heard the story a little differently. First, the chassis were all painted gloss black, as were all of the components and the inside of the fenders. In fact, it's likely that the whole car was...

      I haven't had much to do, but Jocko's been busy.

      He sprayed all my nice mechanical stuff with goopy soap to keep the base coat from sticking to all of the mechanical bits.

      Actually, what you've pictured is typically called a grease cap, but you can call it what you like.

      Your definition is correct. Hub caps came about as they used to cover the actual hub of the wheel. Wheel covers cover the whole wheel.

      A purist will tell you that only a few of those are technically hubcaps, the rest are wheel covers.

      Nice haul, nonetheless.

      From the looks of the site plan they certainly could have zig-zagged that road on the available land. Had my brakes been working correctly it might have been no big deal, but that was a very bad...

      These cars are judged by their originality. A dual MC would stick out like a sore thumb. I've heard people swear at duals and swear by them. Brake bias is often difficult to dial in. Many conversions...

      The Devaux/Continental was another 1-year car. It's very rare, but my plate is full. I'd like to know the serial number of the Mark II, though.

      The rusty Continental/DeVaux is actually how my car...

      This is a cautionary tale of maintenance gone bad. I made the ass-sumption that purging the water out of the cylinders every two or three years was enough. I was wrong.
