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!
Ok, I’ve been on here for almost a decade. I KNOW we covet our cars and have always tried selling them at premium prices. But the bottom line, our cars rarely fetched prices over a covair. The…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…

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.
