  3. Thanks, I'll give him a call !! I'll get back to you about power tour in a couple of days !!!
  4. Me too! As I’ve said before I really don’t do car shows, but one thought is the Nationals are in the beginning of August!?
  5. Yesterday
  6. A couple things as a little FYI. One other thing that works really well is Happich Simichrome and a very soft cloth, followed up with Meguiars Ultimate polish. But, since you have done some restoration to the lens one other thing you might consider is getting some Black Magic tire wet and apply this the the lens. This product is basically silicone. Apply a thin coat and just leave it to dry, which it really won’t dry very well. After a day wipe and buff and reapply. After 3 or 4 applications you may notice a decrease in any hazing that was still there. Then every few weeks always apply a wipe coat to both headlights, this will help kept them clear. It’s also great for door and trunk weatherstripping.
  7. I certainly hope he makes it out there too. He’s a wealth of information, for sure. Do you happen to have the Smole Signals article?
  8. Thanks Frosty, thought it could be his. We met him a number of years ago at a POCI convention. Been reading his articles in Smoke Signals.Dimitri wrote a feature article about his car for that newsletter and kindly mentioned our ‘59 as adding to his desire to find one for himself. Hoping to see him and his Bonneville at our POCI convention in Gettysburg in July.
  9. 31 - yes it does belong to Dimitri Toth. I was introduced to him later in the day. Dimitri is a writer and a supporter of the new Pontiac Transportation Museum. I have his business card too. i will post some pictures of his car a little later. It’s gorgeous!.
  10. Ford has issued an update to a previous recall for 123,000 2013 Ford F-150 pickups. The recall affects trucks that haven't undergone a transmission software update, and models that have already received the previous fix, Ford said Wednesday. The problem surrounds a powertrain control module for 2013 Ford F-150 pickups equipped with the 5.0-liter...View the full article

  12. Did I miss something ? What kind of car, year, engine, etc...?
  13. Not sure 31....Frosty had a discussion with the owner of the red vert. Sweet as ride, both of them.
  14. I have a ticking noise coming from the passenger side of the engine compartment about where the alternator is
  15. I rattled GE's cage for you. I told him he needs to contact you through Faceblob.
  16. Hi Tomy2tone. Welcome to FP. Power windows and seats would be driven off of the power/accessories fuse on the fuse block under the dash. This is either a 30 or 40 amp fuse. Check your owners manual. It should have a map of this fuse block and what amperage the fuse should be. Check your fuse, if it is bad replace it. If the fust is fine, then I suspect something else.... Now from what you described, being able to move the windows up and down and seats without the key in the ignition is a similar "problem" I had with Lucy, my '72 Lemans convertible for over 20 years. I could power down the windows and the power convertible top without the key. The car is not designed to do that - at least mine is not - and I suspect yours it not if you read the owners manual. The key is suppose to be in the run position in Lucy for the top or windows to work. So what happened to me and may have happened to you is a failed / partially failed power relay. For Lucy, the power relay for the power accessories is behind the driver's side kick panel. Mine partially failed over 20+ years ago to bypass the ignition circuit. I suspect yours did too and now the relay has failed completely. Mine failed completely 2 years ago and I could not raise/lower my windows or my top. A simple voltmeter will prove if it works. Check the body or chassis manual for the mention of a power relay that drives/supports the accessories. I knew the 'A' cars it should be behind the driver's side kick panel. This is what the power relay in Lucy looks like and probably what you may be looking for as well.
  17. Justa6, by any chance does that ‘59 belong to Dimitrie Toth?
  18. The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD will cost less than the truck it replaces with a starting price of $35,695. That price is $300 lower than last year's model and it includes a $1,595 destination charge, Chevrolet said Thursday.

  21. The 2020 Kia Cadenza has a new look for the new year. The automaker brand an updated version of big sedan in its home market of South Korea Wednesday. There, it's known as the K7, but we'll likely see the car keep the Cadenza name when it's shown for the U.S. market.

  23. We have owned our 1959 Bonneville since 1977. It has power steering, power brakes, automatic power antenna, power seat, power windows, and speed alarm. Most of the Bonnevilles (but not all) had power steering and power brakes. They definitely do not drive like a modern car, but back in the day, most cars were of similar size and weight and had drum brakes with no anti-lock feature. If you drive it on a regular basis you will get used to how it handles and brakes and it will become second nature to you. If you must have disc brakes, there are conversion kits available. Also, I do not trailer this car. We drive it to every event we attend.
