That is EXACTLY what I was going to say. We have garbage 91 locally, no 93 left in the area. I could go to Sears Point ... WHOOPS I mean SONOMA Raceway and get several different octanes but they are 10 BUCKS a gallon. I can even get 116! BUT I run AVGAS in both cars. It is 100 octane low lead and cost is $4.75 a gallon. Why pay $4 a gallon for 91 junk, another few bucks a tank full, and you are golden!  ;D  Plus it is blue dyed, so if you have a leak it stands out like a sore thumb. I assume it is for the mechanics to see any issues during engine inspections? See the front bottom bowl bolt on attached picture showing a slight leak. Had two or three of them after carb rebuild and tightened slightly, cleaned with a rag and some carb cleaner and BINGO.. Bob's your Uncle!! Danny

Kelley, that is hilarious. I assume you me a guitar.
 I actually had a white '66 Mustang convertible with a 4-speed and deluxe interior. That was a cool smooth car. It had a 200 6cyl in it. Bought it for $400 and sold it for $900 2 weeks later. Thought I was super smart. Little did I or anybody know if I had it today it would be 25 or 30K or MORE!! I bought a 440 dodge cop car with the money and took it to the slews. A giant swamp area locally. We beat it to death and shot it with our guns hundreds of times. I put it in gear and jammed a stick on the gas pedal real quick watched it jump the berm into the water and sink. We shot it some more while it was sinking. I almost got dragged with it reaching in to jam the stick. Good Times!!.. Danny

Ha ha.. Yes I am a chrome guy. I don't hate them. But the chrome breaks up all that paint and gives some separation. When I was in HS from '76 to '79 I don't think I ever seen it. I was into Mustangs. I had 5 '65-'66 fastbacks at the same time all strewn down my parents driveway! Then no cars for MANY years. And picked up a '67 RS Butternut Yellow for 5K, kept it a while and sold it. Then on, hooked on Camaro.. Danny

I am looking always. But my want list is extensive like everyone else. I like to look and learn. I have to finish paying for the one I just got. My real want is a '69 LeMans Blue Z22 Z/28 X33 ZL2 M22 D80 G80 N34 with Black Z87 U17, Z21, Z23, A01, B93, C50, D33, D34, U57, T60, ZJ9, ZK3... NOT kidding. I actually found one a couple years ago with JUST about everything on my list. It was 170K!! Danny

Looking at BOTH of my cars and some other pic's.... It looks like the 4 is to close to the one?   Danny

« on: August 02, 2018, 04:24:31 AM »
This really is convincing. What helps it is the tops of all the numbers and letters are a little light in stamping. Just like some originals I have seen. Broaching doesn't seem to be there as there are small horizontal lines. Looks pretty darn real... Danny

Thanx Ed.. Seems pretty tight, not a lot of shaft play and I think could be used as is... Any value? Danny

I thought I asked about this distributor years ago, but was unable to find it in a search. Going to sell this and would like to know what it fits. It is a Chevy unit that was converted to a electronic box ignition. Thanx... Danny

Take a look at this car. I have a friend looking at it to possibly purchase. It's up the road a piece from me. But before I go look, would like opinions on cowl tag, stamp etc.  Danny

That's what I was just saying to myself. The edge of the pad area looks smooth like it has been cut. Numbers all up/down and sideways. Would like to see the paint gone and close-up of that area. I am still learning, but I would stay away. Danny

5 or 6 lines down to the middle/right = Interior is perfect or very close to it in black standard ;)  I am guessing what PG stands for... power glide? If so, yes it is a "slip & slide" power Glide. I am intrigued by this car. I will try to get pictures in the coming days. I have "right of first refusal" on this car. So I need to kick it into gear if I want it.  Danny
