I've spent time cleaning up edges in areas that will rarely if ever be seen. I'm sure it's on the list.

I like your Impala convertible too. It's rare to see one in nice condition.

John I agree it is rare. I especially like that Jay's garage is split with signage on the wals. One side Chevrolet sign and then the othe Ford sign

Default Jay Davidson's '59 Tbird

Jay Davidson has finally got his '59 Tbird up to par and ready to let it strut its stuff. Here is some of what he had to say today.

In the 27 months I have owned the 59 Tbird I only ran it around town and did not feel it was ready to get up on the Interstate. Well I felt toniite was the nite. I planned to go one exit, as I did not know what to expect. I entered the hiway and slowly accellerated up to 60 for the 3 mile trip.

You cannot believe the ride on the highway in this thing! Steady like a rock and I was amazed. The highway ride at 60 was smooth, no shakes, or shimmy out of the tires. This thing rides better than the 2 Retractables I owned. I was very pleasantly surprised. That Wixom plant produced great cars. The engine did not whine, the trans was smooth and the rear end was quiet, driveshaft no vibration.

It also drives better on the highway than my '66 Flairbird that I owned 10 years ago. It was all over the road and I did a lot to try to fix that, but ended up selling it.

I also think that the idler arm kit I put on my '59 is the best $ you can spend because it keeps the linkage tight and the car on track.

I also have to give credit to Diamond Back Classic Tire. They told me their radial WWW Tire was made bY TOYO and it rode like a TOYO.

Default Jay Davidson's '59 Tbird

Jay had his '59 out to the 44th Annual Bay State Antique Auto Show in Massachusetts today. Here is what he had to say and some pix.

"There were 9 Tbirds that showed up. I was in the class 1958 to 1989 Thunderbirds. I finished behind two gorgeous '60 Convertibles. A red one with a white top. A Black one with white top and conti kit. I won third place. It was hard to compete against 2 Convertibles....
