  1. What would it take to do a "41 Ford Coupe ?

    Everybody's missing the 41 has running boards, got to swap them over too.
  2. 1964 Dodge engine colors

  3. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    Not in my or my daughters case, just trying to keep the things on the road. My son who was pressed into doing a lot of the work calls them Ja-Heaps.
  4. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    I work in an independent shop, we don't see too many new ones, they go to the dealerships. I'm in a VW club ( I do love the old air cooled stuff ) and many members drive the newer cars. They all seem to have check engine light horror stories. The diesel guys get picked on a lot! LOL
  5. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    I think her's is a 2016, 70 thousand miles. It's left her stranded several times.
  6. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    All German cars are over complicated for complexity sake, My Daughters VW New Beetle had the check engine light on more than it was off. I'll also say that her current Jeep Cherokee has been an electrical nightmare. And I'll add I'm an ex VW and Jeep owner myself. Lessons learned. JEEP = Just Emptied Every Pocket.
  7. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    I'm in the auto repair business and know what I see every day. VW parts prices are astronomical and check engine lights are a way of life. A friend of mine even has a "das normal" check engine light bumper sticker on his. Asian cars are far more more economical. Well, the name Ford speaks volumes here.
  8. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    It's not the down stroke, VW's are expensive to service, and unfortunately they require a lot of it.
  9. Mines on order, should have it Monday the 10'th.
  10. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    Sadly most people can't afford to keep a VW running. Maybe the color choice thing will turn around.
  11. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    Does anyone else find it funny that in the effort to make cars more crash worthy they made cars harder to drive without crashing them? There is a reason for all of the backup sensors, rear view cameras and lane change radar warnings on new cars, you can't see out of the darn things.
  12. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    50 shades of grey is more than a girl porn book title, it describes the new car dealers lots! I'm old enough to remember the 50's Easter egg colors, and miss them. Going to an old car show today is a visual treat styling and color wise.
  13. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    Yes! I really miss 2 door cars, if you want one today your choice is the Challenger, Mustang or Camaro. Way out of the price range of most buyers, and not the most practicable family cars, besides being to low for us old farts to get in and out of. And what ever happened to station wagons?
  14. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    Hardtops (true pillarless hardtops), bench seats, ROOM to stretch out in, being able to see out of the @#$%^ things, column shifters, doors that didn't lock themselves, a lack of unnecessary electronics, and good styling.
  15. Need info on Columbus Indiana show in September

    Yes It is!
