  • Washed and waxed the car in preparation for the Sarnia stree machines car show Sunday, then we took it to town to get bridge fries!



    Can you tell where we tested The jax wax haha




    Sitting on four new shoes, we might buy two more white walls for the back, we found somewhere local that them since we bought the other two plain black for a few dollars cheaper!



    We are much more confident going for a drive now that we have all new rubber

            • Cody she is certainly coming along nicely. It is good to see 350 cars on the grass as a turn out for this event

              • x2 on the "way out" Bird - a little too "way out" for me but - still nice. Do think they did a good job on the gauges. Say - they copied your steering wheel idea.

                Your car is looking great too.
                I do think the white walls look good on your car with the white top - JMHO

                On the value - I always tell anyone that asks if my car is for sale - "Yes".
                Next question is "How much".
                So I tell them - "I think it's worth about 16 but I'll take 32".

                • i took the old girl into the shop yesterday to get the carb and timing adjusted ( she was hesitant when i started accelerating but ran great at speed ).

                  they pulled the mixture screws and it idled better, then vacuum lines it idled better still ( instead of starving and dyeing ). they said to check what was going on they would have to remove the top plate with would likely destroy the seal. they think the floats or needle are stuck open.

                  long story short I'm having them get a rebuild kit and do the carb so we know when it was done and its done and done right.

                  car sounded terrible on the way home after they played with it haha, ill be taking it back once they have the parts and their carb guy lined up again, glad the shop is only a mile away. downside i dont want to take it for any short cruises in the meantime

                      Yep, Rockauto prices are good, really good- it's the freight to here that's the killer, it can double or more the purchase price for us that are a long way from anywhere.

                      • It was 50 Canadian to the door! Still a pretty decent price I thought

                        • There is one item I cannot understand regarding price:
                          Fuel tanks are made by Spectra Premium in Boucherville, Québec, Canada. Then they are shipped to Rock Auto (in the USA) and the price is still cheaper through RA, than Canadians can get from sources at home. What's up with that?

                          I understand border crossings require extra security but these tanks don't need to cross the border. I wonder if Spectra has a Canadian distributor with more reasonable prices for domestic sales. - Dave

                            I just emailed Spectra and asked them for that information regarding Canadian distributors, if any. I will let you know what they say. Unfortunately, they are closed over the weekend. Spectra markets a lot of different parts other than just gas tanks. Check out their Marketing information.
