Oh geez, a few on here have numerous other classic cars and last weekend I bought a bit of hybrid one.

Its a 1961 Austin Lancer (looks near identical to a Morris Major Elite) which are a Pommy derived thing built here in the great land Down-Under. They are only little, but have fins and chrome.... so pretty cool.

I got it off a 70 year old guy and his wife for a song, as it does require a paint job and few odds and ends sorted, as it hasn't seen the blacktop in 14 years.

The crazy bastard has fitted the car with a 2 litre, single OHC twin plug engine, 5 speed manual, a Ford Cortina diff, Fiat disc brakes and the list goes on. Its got massive sway bars, lowered and was setup for hill climbs. 

The best bit, is its been Mod Plated by our Transport authority, so rego will be a doodle. I can't wait to get this thing on the road. This thing be slicker than a Teflon coated turd off a chrome plated shovel.

At least now, I have something else to play with..... apart from myself.

I always wondered why people would put a sticker on the bumper... Now I know.

So what did you sing to force the elders to part with the car? Theme from Godfather?

Geez mate, that's a bit harsh...... :-)

A few weeks back, I needed to remove the two front seats. Stuffed my big friggin melon under to see what was involved and there was a jar under the seat. Long story short, it looked like it was full of washers or something.

Got it out, 1 x $100 note, 2 x $50 notes and 3x $20 and four dollars in loose change.

Now, I was very, very tempted to keep it, but I knew when I bought the car, they didn't have much money and I didn't give them anymore than I had too either.

So, being a good little boy, I rang them, got their account details and returned the $264.00

They were very grateful...... but i'm still waiting to see any good karma yet, days later I was down with the flu and i'm still struggling...... good karma my arse.

Always took you for Ebenezer Scrooge

How wrong I was.

Regarding the karma. You where suitable rewarded. The plan was ebola but you only got the flue. And the only one struggling is your wife Astrid. She has been struggling since day she met you. So be thankful please.  ;-)

Geez, you're in good form this week Anders.... ha ha ha ha ha

Well once in a while the coin drops all the way.  :-)

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Introducing myself

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
