  2. I see the manufacturer also makes a 4 door Special Sedan and wagon. I'm not sure if my local distributor will have or get them forme but i'm going to check it out. Look here... http://sylvanscalemodels.com/ there may be a distributor near you. The guy on evil bay is cheaper that the web site, it may be Canadian dollars....

    not sure, if I approved you should be able to see me... But there is another Facebook page that was already here before I started this one. I didn't see it when I created it... Either way, my avatar is the same as here and I'm Jerry Larson, what is the name you joined under?
  6. Towing with your 54?

    there was a piece of 1/4 inch plate steel strapped across my frame that had a 1/2 inch chunk of plate steel bolted to it that protruded out the rear of my more door super when I tore it down. I can see a little twist in the frame where it used to be attached. its not going back on if I ever get this thing done...

  10. Hi, It looks like you haven't posted in a while, I was just wondering if you bought the EZ Wiring Harness and how it worked for you? Which one did you buy?

  12. WTB: Brake line Splitter etc

    this may be a silly question, but... what are sergeant stripes? I know what they are in the military, I just haven't heard of them on a Buick. Also, what is wrong with theblocks you have? I just cleaned mine up with a wire wheel and they look like new. Maybe you don't have them, just askin, good luck!
  13. On this day in 1954.....

    December 21, 1954 is the 355th day of the year 1954 in the Gregorian calendar. There are 10 days remaining until the end of this year. The day of the week is Tuesday. Under the Julian calendar, this day is December 8, 1954 – a Tuesday. Both day of the week are the same but did you notice the difference with the Gregorian calendar? Strange as it may, if we name this day after a polygon then it will be called ‘trihectapentacontapentagon’ day. If a person born on this day saved a Cent every day starting at age 7, then by now that person has accumulated $204.54. (Assuming this person is still alive today.) Sagittarius is the zodiac sign of a person born on this day. Turquoise is the modern birthstone for this month. Onyx is the mystical birthstone from Tibetan origin that dates back over a thousand years. Horse is the mythical animal and Wood is the element for this person if we consider the very old art of Chinese astrology Born 12/21/1954 – Chris Evert, American tennis player
  14. What do you guys run to get fuel to your engines that are not plumbed all they way back to the tank? Maybe no one does this, I just want to give my 322 nailhead a start up and break in the cam before moving on to the body work. I don't really want to fill the gas tank and then have to empty it while I do other things... it may sit for another year.
