On this mellow quite Sunday morn ( gotta love SUNDAY---FUN DAY ) -- all i have to say is ------ " MY HEART IS IN HAVANA---nana --nana -nana "!!!!!!!!!!

Every day is SUNDAY when you retire -- smart -- with a Classic Antique CADILAC

They are one of the easier cars to keep for the long haul in my own opinion
The joy this car brings me is very close to that of ----an illegal substance ---PMSL !!!!!!!!!

Enjoy

Since we are into musings.... since I retired on Jan 1, 2015 at the ripe old age of 50, I pick at my wife and tell her that every day feels like a Saturday... a working Saturday that is. It means that I can stop and go do something else as I please. And... speaking of the Classic Cadillacs, might have to pull the 64 CDV out of the stable this afternoon and take the pooches for a cruise. Then it is back to my Working Saturday! LOL

I retired 6 weeks ago and I've worked harder in those 6 weeks than ever before.

This is the latest one, (1960 Ford Falcon)now all done and dusted and ready for a new home. It still needs a bit of a clean here and there, but no more than a 4 to 5 hour quick wipe over. OH, I have fixed the rear venetian that wasn't sitting in the rubber correctly too, just didn't see it until id done the pics.    DOH.... :-(

I've also done a very fast revamp on my old van (1988 Ford Falcon) I used for the lawn mowing gig. Bought it for $500 seven and half years ago. Should be good for another 7 years with any luck.

Very best on your new car selling adventures

There sure is a Big ajustment period when you first retire but after a while you should have a lot of your own time to do what and when you like
Good to have a side income always coming in
Looks to me the new adventure is just that - doing what you like
Enjoy the time not everyone makes it to retirement age
Both you and i have been our own bosses that allows us to have more control over how we spend our time always
That in itself allows a lot of personnal flexability regarding how you spend your lifes time
Leasure time is a gift from the gods

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…
