"I installed new roof rail seals on my 64 four window, and still had a little wind noise on the front driver door. If you take a dollar bill and put it on top of the window, and do it in different locations along the top of the glass, when you shut…"

"It was great designing by Bill Mitchell. And in spite of the obvious benefits of the trim and its placement which were known to the designers, a conscious decision was made NOT to add the trim to the sides of the Fleetwood 60S (and 64 and…"
"In central Florida USA the speed limits ( signs ) are 55- 60 so i will do 60-65 to push the limits a bit The police seem to allow for a 5 MPH adjustment without a problem Those are the speed on most roads here unless you are coming into a town…"
"Dino cruises nice at about 70 mph, but plenty of get up and go if I punch it. I think with the 3.21 gear 80 mph seems a bit more rpm than I prefer although it glides along fine. I think if I were more into interstate cruise, the 2.94 gear would make…"
"In addition to making sure you have good rubber seals, you need to make sure the fitment of the windows against the weather strip at top, and divider seals between windows is good. If the window is not adjusted correctly and has a slight lean out…"
"The inner fender at the door should have a seal at the firewall. That may or may not help with wind noise. New door seals, roof line seals and the vent window seal should stop any roar, but I assume the ride will never be like todays…"
That's about the same speed I'm usually cruising at. The wind noise however is pretty bad. At 70 mph it's more like a roar than a whistle. Do you have any idea what can cause this? I don't see anything strange and…"
"Hi Mark, I get a little bit of wind noise around the drivers door, but not too bad.
I generally cruise around the 65 to 70 mph. Our roads down under, have limits of 100 kph and 110 kph. I haven't copped a fine yet, so allowing for a bit…"
What is your preferred cruising speed on highways with your classic Cadillac? What I mean is the speed that allows for relatively quiet and comfortable cruising without slowing down other traffic. The speed limit in my country is 130 km/h (80 mph) but many people are driving faster than that.And related to the above, do you experience any excessive wind noise? My vent windows are still rather noisy despite new rubber seals.See More

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?
Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.
The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…
