home bodywork/paint/rust protection question by Nate Nagel
This is going to sound like an obscure problem, but it's *my* problem, so I'm going to give it a shot. I'm 99% certain that I'm going to be buying another old car in the near future. It's a '64 Studebaker, which are notorious for front fender rust-out. Now I would like to actually *drive* this...

Incredibly hard-to-remove lugnuts by James P. H. Fuller
Just lugnuts on a farm trailer wheel, but I can't get them off. They've been on for years, probably put on with an air wrench, certainly good'n'rusted. I've tried socket wrench, cross wrench, electric impact wrench, they won't budge. I've used a gallon of Liquid Wrench, no joy. I took the trailer...

Plymouth Fury by Harry K
Saw this one in 1985 inside a closed garage, also saw it still there last week. AFAIK it has not been moved since 1985. Owned by old farmer who was using a truck for tranportation, he died recently. I have only seen this one from the rear end through the garage door. Covered with decades of...

Brake experts? by G.R. Patterson III
This summer, I finished a rebuild job of the brakes on my '40 Ford. I replaced the shoes, drums, lines, and hoses. I rebuilt the wheel cylinders and the master. I put in silicon brake fluid.

Opinions wanted! Best first car for beginner by Eric Martin

A purist's rant by Shooting Shark
On Hemmings' website today, I saw someone purporting to sell a "completely restored" 1938 LaSalle. The site is he http://www.hemmings.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/classifieds.cardetail/id/2121606 First of all, it's silver, which I question was a factory color in 1938. Second, even the most...

Are classic cars discriminated against? by Rustler
I keep running into more and more problems getting service on things I can't do myself. It would be interesting to know if others run into this too.

help identifying the year of a photo by [email protected]
I am trying to date a photo. I know the boat was built in the late 1930's but the person who gave me the photo said it was taken in 1949. I don't believe the boat was in the area during the late 1940's but I could be wrong. Unfortunately I don't know a lot about antique cars. Can...
