We decided we needed one more road trip before the Ks. weather turns to winter. Temp is in the 60's/70's so Ol Blue is begging to give it one more shot last Thursday.

There's a place in Burden Ks. that has the biggest Chicken Fries steak in Ks. Sounds like a destination to me so off we went. Had to stop in one local of the towns along Hwy 99 for a little snack. Two large rolls cost us a whopping 4 bucks.

We avoid 4 lane roads whenever possible. Touring the back roads of Ks is most enjoyable. Small towns, limestone fences, houses and barns are all welcome sites, withstanding the ravages of time. We probably drove a total of 9mi. on Interstate. We arrived at the café mid-afternoon. The chicken fried steak didn't disappoint!. It was huge, a great piece of beef, great gravy, mashed taters, corn, roll and salad bar, $20. Needless to say we ate on it a couple days.

Ol Blue rolled down the the road without a hitch. Drove right at 70...

My apologies for messing up the sequence of pics, etc. Haven't posted enough to know the in's and out's

Yeah Tony- I truly enjoy, just putting on miles on Ol Blue. thanks. Our round trip was about 700 miles, Easy to do when driving the Ks. hills and plains. Guess its time to refresh a few things over the winter to get ready for next season

Great way to wind up the season!  Beautiful car and I like the custom front plate.  Price aside, I think 700 miles round trip was a bargain for that meal.  Unfortunately, there's pretty much nothing on the plate I can eat anymore, but it brings back great memories.  Thanks for posting, Roy

Tom, Fantastic pictures and fantastic story! We almost have a newsletter cover feature here. Maybe a couple more pictures and a couple more paragraphs with a bit more detail on the Caddy and we can feature your car in an upcoming newsletter. Looking back you joined the Chapter back in Dec 2013, or almost 10 years ago, so it is about time we feature these Blue Beauty!   Regardless, thanks for sharing. Feel free to pop in any time and share more of your 63 SDV!

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…

Spark Plug Heat Range

I found a diagram that illustrates the main factor in determining a spark plug heat range that I was trying to describe to you during the chapter get together.

Here it is:

 

The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)  

The insulator…
