Hello Everyone, other than putting batteries in a flashlight my electric background stinks. I have a 12v 45rpm record player I want to mount to the bottom of the dash above the transmission hump. I can do that . The speakers are not an issue since the player sends out a signal on 1600 am. I can attach the ground wire to the dash. The power wire is to be hooked to the postive side of the fuse box. It has a 5amp fuse on it. I figure I could stick the wire with connector into a clip holding a fuse like for the radio. What I don't know how to do safely is check the box for the postive side. I would appreciate any assistence..but  explain it to me like I'm 4 years old..and as if your looking at it while laying on your back looking up at the box so you can read the writing on it...Thanks again Tom

All the fuses are going to be hot, or positive.   Look on the side of the fuse box for a terminal, where you could plug in the hot wire to the record player.  There should be 2 terminals where you could plug in an accessory.

Just wondering where and how much a pair of front fenders and a trunk lid would be for my 63 CDV.

My Car Has Been Totalled

Posted by Lee Martin on October 7, 2016 at 9:07pm 23 Comments

Well, I have some bad news.  After investing $24,500 in my car, and spending all summer fixing everything I was able to fix myself, the car is gone -- totaled in an accident this evening.

Luckily, nobody was hurt.  While making my customary leisure drive through Hines Park, two teenaged girls in an SUV pulled out in front of me to make a left hand turn after I had already reached the intersection.  There was nothing to do.  I thought I was going through the windshield.

But the…


Drain Tubes

Posted by MARK SCHROER on September 28, 2016 at 2:41pm 46 Comments

My 1963 series 62 convertible is missing the drain tubes for the convertible top in the trunk. These tubes run from the trunk (under the rear of the top) to the interior and drain into the quarter panel next to the rear seat behind the trim panel. Mine is missing these tubes. Is anyone making them, or should I be looking for a used pair?

Thank you,

Hi I have a 63 Cadillac with a 390 and it sat for years before starting up and now the engine is giving signs of age, as well as the transmission slipping.. how much would a rebuild for each cost?
