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

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
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
