Hot Car Show

Thought I would share a pic of our cars at a local car show last month. Since both cars are driver quality, I'm not much of a car show guy and the wife definitely isn't. But, I talked her into driving Ol Blue while I drove my 48 Chrysler Windsor. The temp was approaching 100 that day which made the beer taste real good. Both made the trip without issues. Some days life does not suck. Both cars drew a lot of interest as only 2 other Caddies and zero Chryslers out of about 500 cars.See More

A Sad Day in Mudville

Posted on July 20, 2015 at 11:48am 15 Comments

Saturday was a bad day.

The wife and I was returning home from a local cruise when ol Blue started reving up going down the interstate. Yep, something gave out on the old tranny. The underside of the car is soaked with tranny fluid along with the rear of the car. It lost it fast, by the time I got to the exit, there was no movement. Pulled the dipstick, empty.

I thought maybe one of the rubber hoses in the cooling lines gave out but I can't see anything wrong with them.  Of…

A Test

Posted on February 26, 2015 at 4:47pm 7 Comments

Well, we woke up to a beautiful, warm day for this time of year here in NE Ks. yesterday. The wife said it would be " a good day to test the Caddie".

This is  in prep for a little adventure we're planning to take the end of March first part of April. We're going to drive the Ks, Ok. and maybe Texas stretch of Route 66. What better way of doing it than in a '63 Sedan DeVille.

 I said what the h..., temp in the 40's-50's, sunshine, threw a few tools in the trunk and headed…

63 SDV Rear Seat Belts

Posted on February 22, 2015 at 1:27pm 3 Comments

Well, the wife say we gotta have'em so I'm on the hunt for seat belts for the back seat of my SDV 4 window.

My question is, are the rears the same length as the front?. Near as I can tell, fronts are about 70+ inches or so.

I've been looking at after market, chrome latch belts that are pretty reasonable. Seat Belt Planet and Andoauto are a couple. Although not exact match to the fronts that are installed, they'll be fine for my driver. 

Haven't looked around at it yet to…
