I feel the guys that run this auction are not car guys. They are more like used car salespeople, just concerned about commissions.

I bought a Plexiglas rear window for my V8 6 months ago. It is contoured at the top to create an opening and a low pressure area. Got up the guts today to trim it to size and start the install. Might hinge it. Next I need to finish up the '68 Convertible and sell it (too many cars for me). Jeff

I got an old unused Stinger Motorsports front disc brake conversion. Several MC's were recommended and the one I used is a 1975 GM 1/2 ton truck non power assisted. It stops OK but requires a lot more pedal pressure vs stock. I did adjust the rod to give more pedal travel but it still takes a lot of effort. If someone has this setup and wants to change the brake pads; the ones listed are not corr

Check out this company. Life time warranty. I remember a number of car shows promoting this product.

Sorry for the misunderstanding; I can get it open with the aid of my other hand but I would like it to pop open once I push the lock in.

Any tips on getting the glove box door to open when the latch is pushed in. I see a spring on the hinge, is that replaceable or is there an easier way to correct. Jeff

Looks like a beautiful car. Too bad it is not a turbo. Prices going up. Jeff

One thing you might consider; add a switch with 12 volts and tap into the + wire coming off the fuel pump. If your relay fails you have a backup to get you home. Jeff

These front springs were on my 65 convertible and the car sat low to the point it took out my spoiler over any bump. Bought springs for the convertible from Clarks and thought the old springs would be perfect in my 65 hardtop. Well it now sits higher then I like. I will take a look to make sure they are seated properly on the upper control arm.

I need to cut the new front springs on my Corsa to lower the front end by about 1-1.5 inches. I assume the cut should be at the top of the spring but I thought I would check first. Thank you Jeff

I think directing the intake air filter snorkels toward the incoming fresh air would be beneficial. I am sure someone has done this; maybe even adding small electric fans.

I think Rick was suggesting adding the MMO to the gas tank at each fill up. Except for Chevron, he was not impressed with the current gas offerings especially in Ca. Jeff

I took my 390cfm 4 barrel to Rick in San Diego (crusty old guy that knows carbs) and he strongly recommended using 4 oz of the Marvel on each fill up. He said it helps clean the rings,pistons,valves and "keeps the carb happy". Anyone have experience with this old product. Jeff
