1960 Merc-o-matic Question

OK, I drive my '60 quite regularly now here in Chicago. On an occasion when coming to a "near stop", like a yield, the trans slips into a neutral position before shifting into 1st. Does not do it all of the time. She shifts into drive well and solidly when selecting from park. Reverse selects fine t...

I am going to have to tackle the same thing. I'm going to approach it differently though. I do not care about the originality. I am going to weld the vent in front of the windshield completely up and run fresh air intake hoses from behind the headlites, through the fender wells, into the fire wall t...

Air bags, not the bad ones in the steering column either!

New Floor Pans

Just finished welding a completely new floor pan, front to rear using 16gauge galvanized steel and a Lincoln 110v gas MIG welder. It was a blast! Tons of fun. I'm not lying. But it was hard. The car had solid rockers, just suffered from water standing in the interior. I will get the pics sorted out ...
