OK, We have not done trivia in a while and ran across this items yesterday working on a parts car and thought it would be a good trivia question.   See picture below and name that part! 

Two hints: It fits inside something and definitely not something you would find on every 1963/64 Cadillac.

Is it inserted into a hose to prevent collapsing ? Or is it used on a door panel like for a window crank ? Or is it put in the gas tank neck to prevent someone from siphoning gas ….

OK... 3 guesses and the 3rd is correct. It is rather large, and goes in the metal gas tank filler neck to prevent siphoning gas. I guess it would prevent anything from getting pushed into the tank.. but siphoning gas prevention would be the main use! 

SO, RAY.... HAVE A CIGAR!!!

Size matters. Even if wife says it doesn't... ;-)

Can I suggest using a reference like a BIC-lighter or a soda-can to get an idea about size for next trivia?

I intentionally didn't want to give a size reference! In fact I tried to take picture in a way that would not indicate size.  Makes it more fun not knowing the the size!

'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…

Here it is:

The insulator…
