"Joe I went to the fabric store and found an almost exact match in pattern. It was a vinyl like material but not in the colour I needed. I sprayed mine the colour I wanted and it turned out fantastic. Used a rattle can to do it."

Metal inline fuel filters

I have a question... When I was a young boy and teenager working in full service gas stations in the late 1960's early 1970's, I know I saw several Cadillacs with an A/C brand metal fuel filter in the place where the glass bowl filter would be on our 63's & 64's. In addition, I was told ,and heard more than once, that these filters were a replacement for the " dangerous " glass bowl filters. Does anyone know about this and is there a metal filter replacement available today ? See More

Seeing less and less cars that are desirable to restore

Posted by Tony and Ginny 429 on June 11, 2017 at 12:30pm 6 Comments

I see Hemmings Motor News daily

I am seeing in the last 3-6 months that there are less and less cars available that would be insperational to restore

It seems like there are more daily driver type cars available only

Not the quality of cars or high performance power cars That were around and for sale for many years

Could it be we are running out the most desirable cars to restore we had in the past ( from the 60's and 70's)

The conditions that the cars they are choosing… Continue

Normal tune up interval with stock points

Posted by Tony and Ginny 429 on June 11, 2017 at 12:06am 1 Comment

I know the cars from these years needed more maintenance than the cars today

I think the tune up interval was 6000 miles and the oil change and grease was in the 3000 mile range when the cars were new

These cars need to be geased



The pertronics ignition does change the tune up specs to much longer but the other parts of the ignition like the cap and rotor plugs wires all will still need attension at certain intervals



Best to keep up with required maintenance to… Continue
