A Sad Day

Well it finally happened. After 8 years of enjoyment, over 20,000 miles, the wife and I were sitting at a stop sign in our small town, waiting for traffic to clear and an old farmer ran into the back of us. Bowed the rear bumper, got the deck lid, latch, air shock lines, trunk won't close and who knows what else.

A Sad Day in Mudville

Posted on July 20, 2015 at 11:48am 5 Comments

Saturday was a bad day.

The wife and I was returning home from a local cruise when ol Blue started reving up going down the interstate. Yep, something gave out on the old tranny. The underside of the car is soaked with tranny fluid along with the rear of the car. It lost it fast, by the time I got to the exit, there was no movement. Pulled the dipstick, empty.

I thought maybe one of the rubber hoses in the cooling lines gave out but I can't see anything wrong with them.  Of…

A Test

Posted on February 26, 2015 at 4:47pm 3 Comments

Well, we woke up to a beautiful, warm day for this time of year here in NE Ks. yesterday. The wife said it would be " a good day to test the Caddie".

This is  in prep for a little adventure we're planning to take the end of March first part of April. We're going to drive the Ks, Ok. and maybe Texas stretch of Route 66. What better way of doing it than in a '63 Sedan DeVille.

63 SDV Rear Seat Belts

Posted on February 22, 2015 at 1:27pm 3 Comments

Well, the wife say we gotta have'em so I'm on the hunt for seat belts for the back seat of my SDV 4 window.

My question is, are the rears the same length as the front?. Near as I can tell, fronts are about 70+ inches or so.

I've been looking at after market, chrome latch belts that are pretty reasonable. Seat Belt Planet and Andoauto are a couple. Although not exact match to the fronts that are installed, they'll be fine for my driver. 

Haven't looked around at it yet to…

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? I have been on Classic auto air in Tampa FL wait list for over a year ,  There is one on Old air products web site that looks very similar to the original # 21-4214A but states it fits 1962 Gm cars, The one recommended for a 1964 Cadillac is half the length 21-4215A    What  is everyone using ? I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'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…
