Lastly what's a POWER ANTONIA??? One of the Jersey boys? A high colonic? An ocean liner? A locomotive?
  3. nothing yet frosty except for a local GTO group xD and my car decided to kill itself so i have it on life support slowly rehabbing it
  4. Any takers that you know of yet? I'm hoping you have a lot of success. Good luck!
  5. Harvdog - I am still looking. However I am not having a lot of success (but I think you already know that) when it comes to finding interior door panels for a '72 B-car. While there are some re-pop parts for the '72 Cat that I can find, this (so far) is not one of them. I suspect calling old classic car wrecking yards and refurbishing any promising interior panels might be your only bet at this time unless you willing to go the custom upholstery route with a reputable automotive upholstery shop in your area.
  6. Everything was fabricated except for the hardware we used to attach the flags to the poles. The pins were also purchased.
  7. Ford is recalling its brand-new midsize Ranger pickup for a potential fire hazard, the company announced Monday. The risk stems from the climate control system's blower motor, which may have been built without enough clearance between its base plate (which is conductive) and an electrical terminal. The two can make contact, resulting in a short...View the full article
  8. Okay SPRINT 6 - care to guess what the motor is in this GTO? I happen to know. HINT: It ain't a Pontiac.
  9. Quick question Last Indian - two really.... 1. Your high end premium gas - does it have one or two detergents in it? Most have only one - a handful have two - depending on the brand. 2. How often do you add your PEA fuel cleaner?
  10. Most powder coat shops in my area don't carry a "chrome" powder coat because it is not close enough to the real thing, it's too expensive, or there is no demand (locally) for it. I guess I haven't seen (or know I've seen) a PVD wheel or part to see the difference.
  11. I'm guessing that the receiver hitches were used to make use of the commercially available hitch flag poles. I don't mind bolting and unbolting the pole mounts when I need them. Thanks for taking photos of your mounts. It is quite an ingenious and easy way to go for sure.
  12. Everything on mine is bolted and frame mounted. I might rework some of it so it's all one piece. I've got a little more to work with considering it's a wagon. Idk that I'd want receivers on a car like yours either?
  13. At least there is some light at the end of the tunnel! Hope that works out
  14. I brought Lucy home last night. She drove well. I thought I was out of the woods. When I put her away, I looked at the passenger side floor board, it looked a tad wet. I can't be sure right now since it was so dark but I suspect I may have heater core damage. I will try to confirm that this weekend when I have time and daylight. If that's true, replacing it that will really suck. It also will mean I have to trash the carpet. Uggh. Sounds like a near interior and dash tear down. Also, I will have to (at a minimum) remove the inner passenger fender to access a pair of bolts to get the heater core out. Some say it is easier to remove the whole fender. Uggh again. I will keep you posted on what I find out this weekend. The good news is I am going to look a possible garage/work shop space tonight after work. It's a 30x50, so I could store a few cars in that sucker! I am excited this could be what I've been looking for.
  15. Thanks. I've seen commercially available flag poles that attach to a regular trailer receiver hitch. I just don't have a receiver hitch on the Lemans and I really don't want to mount one just for this. I figured that I would have to someday fab up my own set.
  16. Idk what they even cost because a friend covered the expense. I can tell you that the hitch was also custom made and cost $240. I don't think flag mounts would be as expensive?
  17. Thanks for responding. I was afraid you’d say that.
  18. If you can buy repops as JustA says that’s the best. There is a chrome power coat, but it’s not nearly as good a PVD! If you have to redo what you have I would recommend the PVD, most chrome wheels today are the PVD process.
  19. Yesterday
  20. Welcome to the sight...Really dig the wagons....
  21. The mounts were made in a custom weld shop. Idk that there is anything available commercially?
  22. Agreed. So I have a question. I notice you have flag poles mounted on the rear of the white '65 Catalina wagon. Is that something you or someone fab'd up or is it something you bought commercially? I'd like to get a set of flag poles for my '72 Lemans for parade duty too. I'd just like to buy something rather than having to fab it up.
