  • Ultimate Restorations

    I just turned on public TV and see a program called "Ultimate Restorations", which I'd never heard of. I'm going to have to tune in every time it's on because they restore everything from vintage aircraft to Pullman cars, and it's none of that fake drama crap like on other channels.

    I'll have to watch for it. Sounds interesting.
    was so disappointed with the show American Restoration. Seems the only thing that I learned there was to have some kids disassemble something, then they shipped the parts out, to be restored somewhere else, then they re-assemble before taking the customers money. One of their programs did show how to make a plastic tail light lense for a scooter. Oh well. Jeff

      Magnetic flashing light

      For those like me who don't have fancy LEDs or like an original car, I bought one of these a while back. I put it on the my trunk I have tried it on the bumper too (so the paint doesn't get damaged). It is super bright and battery powered. I put it on at night and stow it during the day, I will some times if in heavy traffic use it in the day time. Works Great.

      Is This The Largest Weekly, Unorganized, Uncommercialized Car Show?
      by Ayyy

      Every Saturday. Starts at sunrise. Ends an hour or two later.
      No vendors, no fees, no sign ups, no trophies.

      Here are some photos from this morning. There were two late 1931 CCPU trucks, one 1930 CCPU (mine), and a few other A's.

      Chapter 7 notice
      by Mike V. Florida
      Got my LB chapter notice in the mail today. Not sure what I need to do in anything as I assume since they sent the notice to me they know they have my money. Anyone ever deal with this before?

      Bad Chinese Thermostats vs Good made in Israel thermostat
      by sphanna
      i went to NAPA and purchased a Stant 180* thermostat. Got home and tested it before installation. It would not open even in boiling water. Took it back and noticed it was made in China. Got my money back and said I wanted one made in US and was told that no-one made them in us anymore. All from China. I said, I'll check somewhere else. I went to OReilly's and found a (Murray Plus + # 3838 ) 180* Thermostat...

      How much life was expected from a Model A, I was wondering to myself , did them people think that 90 years later there purchase was still going to be around , Personally I find it amazing . rough times back then , money to maintain there car must have been hard to come by. I have a 29 and found some coins in front door bottom from 1932.. just wondering a few coins probably made a difference, 90 years...

      OEM Ford radios
      by toshik
      I could not find any information on when Ford started installing OEM radios? I'm pretty sure it was a very expensive option back then, I guess none were available for model A at all?
      The reason being is that I have good experience with restoring both tube and transistor vintage radios. I'd imagine they were AM only, sadly there is almost no broadcasting there today.

      Model A farming plant - is there anything like this?
      by Hoogah
      Over the past couple of weeks, I've been involved in preparations for a clearing sale on a farm that belonged to two bachelor brothers. The last of the brothers passed away about 18 months ago. Both were well into their 80s when they died. What is unique about these blokes is that they farmed in some kind of time warp for almost all of their lives.

      It IS nicer to watch live on the Internet vs. NBCHD TV. On TV they sell three cars and then cut to 8 minutes of commercials. Redundant ever repeating commercials. Not so with Watch Live. Commercial free.Plus there isn't all the bidder drama that the TV shows you, they don't have them displayed on TV. And the auctioneer is more pro-active on Watch Live. It's more about the car. Makes it more interesting....
