Leaf Spring Silicone

Have you ever put that silicone sheet stuff between your spring leaves?

If so, how do you like it?
I'm thinking of putting some between my leaves while they are apart. I don't want that messy graphite leaking all over.

As a side note to Lindbergh, my next door neighbor, Mr. Crockford, went to Cass Tech High School in Detroit. HIs teacher was Charles Lindberghs' mother. Mr. Crockford would tell me stories about how Mrs. Lindbergh would read to his class letters from Charles about his preparations for his trans-Atla...

Re: Clear coat my 1926 fordor body

Larry,

I see you're not that far from Hershey and the AACA museum.

If I were you, I'd contact a curator or preservationist at the museum and ask for advice. Some of these folks are experts at preservation and should be up to speed on the latest preservation methods.

Hope this helps.

Mize rebuilt coil

Nice, rarely used, like-new coil rebuilt by Brent Mize. On Ebay. It's mine. I should have put it on here first but didn't think of it.

Re: O.T. how did you get your sweetie to support your T addiction?

I am one lucky guy! My wife, Judi, of 42 years was into vintage cars before we were married. We dated in my 1926 Dodge Brothers Deluxe Sedan -- which I still have. (I bought it as a senior in high school.) I recall a time when we were dating and the Dodge was not running right. A friend and I were t...

Follow up add: I did NOT list it as a "buy it now". I checked the original listing. Something went wrong. The item is an Aermore horn that I started the bid at $20 on a ten day auction.

I listed an item as an auction but didn't know it showed up as a Buy it Now. I listed a low price as usual to encourage bidding. Someone bought it as a Buy It Now at a ridulously low price within minutes of the listing. Does ebay change listings to buy it now? I cannot let the item go for what it we...

To deny or get upset at historical fact that Henry Ford was an anti-Semite is to deny the Holocoast, other Nazi attrocities and, Hitler. We cannot deny or dismiss history, even the horrible. It is, indeed, unfortunate that a man as great as Henry Ford -- a man who literally changed this planet -- wa...

Re: OT-- Old Photograph- That famous guy from Boston!

Reminds me of the Laurel and Hardy film, "Our Wives" where Ollie and his rather large girlfriend try to squeeze into and an American Austin. Don't know if this will work, but watch it up to about 3:17. You may have to copy and paste in another window, but it's worth it. Marty https://youtu.be/3dcU4O...
