Anybody driving or own a vintage car?
I don't mean a 90's Subaru, or a Volvo or other such heaps, I mean real vintage, pre-1965,...
I personally am in the process of building a pre-war style 4 banger hot rod, 1929 Ford Model A Tudor sedan.
The only parts that aren't pre-1940 are the brake shoes, cylinders and essential suspension parts that non new would be a hazard, and the cylinder
head, which is an upgrade speed part made by the same company that built them back in the day to the same specs. The generator field coils, are also
an upgrade to early Ford Falcon so I can run 12 volt electronics, and the air cleaner is a 1956 ford F100 oil bath modified to hold modern air filter
elements. Even my carb is a vintage 1932 Stromberg 97, I got for a steal at $220 off of ebay...
Anybody else got some interesting wheels?
Like I said, nothing post 1965...In fact scratch that..
Nothing post 1955...
It drives me crazy when someone tries to convince me their 1990 CRX is a classic car (it was an ugly POS then, it's ugly now, and it will be ugly 80
years from now if it even survives that long)...just cause it's old, don't make it classic.
