Looking forward to seeing Dwight Yoakam in concert tomorrow night for the first time. Of course Guitars, Cadillacs is one of my favorites ... and it doesn't hurt that he uses a 1963 Cadillac in his video for the song!

Well for someone like me that doesn't live in the U.S.A this sure sounds and looks like pure Americana to me. I wish i had a band playing like that when my car is on the car lift.

Have fun.
Dwight is one of the few country artists I like, I'm partial to " Long White Cadillac " myself!

He was also great in Sling blade.

Enjoy the show!

I have always loved his Buck Owens "Bakersfield" sound and it will tick off one more "gotta see" on my list.  The favorite song he ever did was a cover of Elvis' Mystery Train. His hiccup-py, twangy style was absolutely perfect for that song! I have a video of it from an Elvis Tribute show recorded at the Pyramid in Memphis in 1994 I will have to try and get uploaded to YT, and hope they just snag me with an advert and a slap on the wrist.

Saw Dwight last night on TV
I am a fan for a long time
He looks the same -wears the same Jeans Jacket ( very American ) jeans and cowbuy boots

He does this little dance thing while pushing that guitar alL over the place
The boy can sing country music real fine
Been a long while since i saw him last
Alway a treat

Enjoy

Enjoy

Brakes Went Out

Posted by Christopher Codd on August 8, 2018 at 8:25am 18 Comments

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…

Comfortron AC trouble shooting

Posted by Norman Silverman on July 23, 2018 at 8:54pm 5 Comments

OK, here we go.....

I got the book to troubleshoot the system. INDISPENSABLE to this effort. 

As I do a cursory exam, I see that the AC RECIRC SOLENOID is Cracked (the WHITE one in the engine compartment coming out of the HVAC body with two vacuum hoses on it). I tried to patch it up (cracked all around the base), but it does not look like it will hold. 

PLEASE TELL ME THAT REPLACING THIS PART IS NOT AS DIFFICULT AS I THINK IT IS, But I think it is a bear to…

A/C Issue / Stumped !

Posted by Dana G Cooper on July 23, 2018 at 6:29pm 37 Comments

My 63 CDV factory A/C was trash so I replaced every part in the system and converted to R134 . I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system.  I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…
