Fitzy, I recommend mounting Last Indian's Indian Head through your grille, mate. You will note that there are provisions on the back to put threaded rod or bolts through it. So at a car show you can always point out you have a unique, hand made piece from your mate Last Indian in Ohio!

BTW - I am very familiar with the Hooters near my house. However, I much prefer the Hooters in Bay City - about 50 miles away, it's on the docks over looking the Saginaw Bay. Either one is fine - I like "wings" and beer mate! :cheers:

I might have to take you blokes to Vinsettas Garage for dinner if you show up. For two reasons, it's on legendary Woodward Avenue so it's an excuse to go cruise Woodward with you. Second Vinsettas was a working garage for 99 years before it was turned into a restaurant. I have pictures of Lucy in front of it before it was turned in the restaurant. So this will give us an excuse to perhaps catch up with Justa, Indyman Joe, and maybe even notallthere and his boss.

I like that - Frosty 'prefers' the other Hooters. How often is he there - every night by the sounds of it! Of course, the more FP members we meet (& others) the better. I can't possibly predict anyone's movements this year but here's hoping it will be this year. We are NOT coming in winter! And yes, I did take note of the threaded hole provision under that Indian head - I shall do you proud...once I sort the electrics and get the thing on the road. If it ever makes it to a car show (there's not many up here where I live) I will be sure to attach all relevant paraphernalia that you have sent me so that the car will be dripping with a tiger tail, various ornaments, stickers and I'll have to wear 3 hats.

I truly have create an Aussie monster, haven't I ?!?!!

I shall enjoy the wearing of the three hats the most. Pointing and ridiculing is what we do best mate! :cheers:

My point about Hooters was simply we have "choices" mate. We can sample different atmospheres! Ambiances! Yeah, that's the ticket!

Good point Ringo. Sadly the Tilted KIlt closed in 2018 here in Michigan.

Twin Peaks, however, is a possibility. In fact, one of them is near Toledo and Dix, where the old Detroit Dragway use to be. Unfortunately today the property is now a trucking warehouse.

Whatever happened to blade fuses with legacy fuse ends? They sold them for a very brief period of time back in the 80s or 90s, but they weren't popular and they've disappeared completely. I wish I recall who sold them. We could certain use them instead of these cheap glass POS or having to re-wire the whole car with a new harness justa to get modern blade fuses.

Here's a curly one: the other day I was bragging about how everything is working and life is great. Well, not EVERYTHING was working. I knew I had a problem with the feed that powers the tail lights & number plate light. I had everything working months ago but now, I've got headlights (both beams) but no tail lights nor instrument lights. I already have the wires that supply those 2 circuits connected but I cannot get power to them. So, I pull my brand new GM replacement light switch and it turns out it's faulty. I hot wired those 2 circuits to 12 volts and hey presto - it's all there. I mention this as a public service: don't ever assume that those nice new electrical components are always gonna work. I spent hours contorted under the dash, sweating & swearing because I couldn't figure out why there was no power to that feed. I have given up and ordered a generic light switch that I will discreetly mount under the dash and that'll be that.

mate its a slide switch... there is really nothing to them. pull your factory one apart , clean all the contacts . and i bet its like new !
