Happy Father's Day to my dad, Sam Edge. He was there in the beginning with me when I started bringing in the 1963/64 Cadillac driver and parts cars. Here we are with Parts Car #1, from 1997. That was one of those days that will live with me forever. We towed the car from Zebulon,NC with a pipe and chain and the window was busted out, so it was cold for him sitting behind the wheel steering. When we got it to the driveway it came lose and had traffic blocked in each direction. We finally got it hooked back up, around to the back of the house, and after adding some oil, and gas got it fired up and running. He told me he would have drove it tot house if he knew it run! The last couple of pictures are with the doors and front clip off the car with my dad driving it around the yards. Fun times!
For the next 8 years we had a blast pulling in parts cars, taking them apart, working on my 64 Coupe deVille and other cars, and our 1912 fixer upper house. YOU READ ABOUT DADS THAT WERE NEVER THERE ... I WAS LUCKY... MY DAD SAM EDGE WAS ALWAYS THERE AND MISS HIM DEARLY!
Hello everyone. I had a perfectly good shifting Hydra-Matic transmission until I elected to fix the leak at the dip stick tube. I just did a quick seal with gasket maker since my current tube is…Continue
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
Good afternoon to all my fellow Cadillac owners! I have a question about the vacuum advance on my car. The car is a 64 without a/c and a Rochester carburetor. I noticed that I have vacuum at the port…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…
I was successful in getting a vehicle from the New York contact I talked about at the last club meeting. I am still trying to figure out how to post a picture of the vehicle that is tied with this comment so if you see a random picture of a black convertible in a yard, that's me haha. …
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.
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…
