Here's the cover from the "HERE WE GO WINNING MORE HEARTS AGAIN' 6 Page mailer included in our Sept 2019 newsletter.

Another excellent newsletter Boss.

For being so good, feel free to take an extra 15 minutes at lunch time. (we'll deduct the correct amount from your wages) LOL :-)

This was definitely a fun one to do. Meeting Mr Payette and hearing his stories as a Sale Rep at Cadillac in 1963/64 was a thrill! I knew we had to feature his story. The thing of it is he is 80, sharp as a tack, and was there ... you just don't find that many people that were around during that time frame to tell us the ins and outs. If I knew then what I know I would be a Chuck Jordan groupie camped out at his door step.  For that that might not know he was the lead designer for the 1963/64 Cadillac and worked with Bill Mitchell and Harley Earl in the design of those late 50's and early 60's Cadillacs.  He died in 2010 and with him a vast amount of info on our cars.

Rear brake lock up when cold

Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed.  Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
