Man you guys are depressing me here... Cry A couple of us have sons and or grandsons were doing our part to get tools in their hands or cars (hot wheels) on their brains. My daughters also play the car game of pointing out classics when were on the road, and luckily by the time I am deemed to old to drive my vehicles I can then have all of my "student" drivers who will be in their 30's or 40's take me around in my old cars, and hopefully some of their own classics. I figure I am just getting started on building a fleet for them to learn on, or learn from. I have no problems giving kids rides in my vehicles, but until all of mine are potty trained, I don't have a lot of extra time to bring a car to a car show.

They have finished their homework and are all playing right now, so I got enough time to type this out... Smiley

On their website it says you have to heat to 210 degrees, are you placing the container on the stove, and then dipping? what was your process and can you post a pic of your results Charley?

those are interesting pics did the passenger side ever come with screws? I noticed JohnZ has screws on his passenger side shields is why I ask. Maybe his got replaced at one point?

very informative link. It looks like the results can vary a bit, and it takes playing with it a bit to get the amount of sheen you want on your end product. Have you tried this little phosphate experiment yet Darrell?

well, if we are including future Classic car enthusiasts I have to throw my son into the mix. This pic was taken when he was 4, (he is now 6). He loves calling out old cars as we are driving down the road or at a car show, and has taken it to the next level and is able to point out the year of certain makes and models. (he knows the differences with the tri fives and how to tell them apart). I never had power wheels growing up, just a couple of hand me down pedal cars, so when the time came I got him a nice one off of ebay for cheap.. Cheesy.

interesting poll.

1slow64, what does your 19yr old drive to the cruise-ins?

when you say manual with a brake, I assume you are talking about a manual valve body, & transmission brake? sounds like fun. So if you get the 56 that will shut your dad up for a bit and you'll get redemption I hope... Cool

As soon as i dial in the 327 in  my 64 C-10, my 55 2 door hardtop is getting the full court press. This time I am going in a different direction, so the 55 is getting a LS1 block, and a 6 speed. I had a 55 2 door post (210) that I bought for $2500 back in 1995. It was very clean no rust, had a 350 powerglide, and a 12 bolt posi with 3.73 gears. I was still a teenager and that was a good price back then for a clean runner. I think it might have had disc brakes as well. I ended up trading it for a paint job on my 66 Chevelle SS. I vowed the only way I was going to let it go is if I promised myself to get another one down the road and preferably a hardtop this time. Well as luck would have it my friend bought a hardtop with memories of doing donuts in mind. it only took me 4 years to talk him out of it. I will be pumped to get that ride on the road!

oh yea, don't mind that cable in the pic, the original owner was so worried about the motor mounts he had a cable installed on the passenger side as well as the factory recommended driver side. That motor isn't going anywhere....

I wasn't sure if mine were correct without the screws on the passenger side. I knew they were original, but I thought maybe the hex screws broke off at first glance,
thanks for that bit of info Chick !

not a great pic, but here is mine:

Dave I would think the judges are basing there judgements after looking at original cars with it positioned parallel to the frame? would be nice if Jerry M would weigh in on this....

You have a diamond" bill of ohio"   well put Jano.

While I have a some personal stock in 60's muscle cars, I wouldn't mind if Muscle cars took a hit in the market. I am perfectly happy having these cars coming down about 50% at least and be affordable to more of the masses. I think if the cars did become more affordable the buyers would tend to have more of a mindset of driving these and maintaing these beauties. The way things are going now, it seems these cars are just getting traded into collections, and not falling into new hands. As a younger guy I was able to attain these cars for the most part because they were affordable. I have since been fortunate enough to turn a profit on a couple of cars I cleaned up to be able to purchase my Z as well as another original owner car recently.
I am not charitable enough to sell them for pennies on the dollar just to get new blood into the hobby, but possibly to the right family member or good friend I might give a decent discount.

Ride of the month is just based on who submits a pic of their car right?
