Nothing lasts forever

Nothing lasts forever and with Erin Moran and Tom Bosley gone, this ’29 pickup will end up outliving the cast.
And now you have a chance to own it. It will cross the block in at Mecum’s Auction in Kissimmee, Florida this weekend. It is estimated to bring $150,000.00.
According to Mecum, “Donny Most, better known perhaps as Ralph Malph in the hit TV series “Happy Days,” was the comedian on the show, always looking to make someone smile or forget their problems.

The show was initially call...

Things to do in a Nuclear Attack

Here are steps you can take in the event of a nuclear strike:

1. Get underground. A basement offers more protection from nuclear fallout particles than a building's first floor. Close windows and fireplace dampers. Turn off heating and cooling units. And the thicker the walls, the better. Dense materials - even books - provide more protection. This helps explain why some people in Hawaii apparently decided to lift manhole covers and climb into the sewers in anticipation of a missile attack.

Things happen in Texas

Things happen in Texas

I feel bad for Cynthia Ruiz. In addition to being a widow, she has now had to bury her son. It’s a horrible thing to lose one of your children, but she did.

However, I can only feel so bad for her. After all, her son brought this on himself.

Ruiz’s son, Andrew Herrera, was shot and killed when he tried to rob a Popeye’s Chicken in Texas. That’s when he came face-to-face with the state’s self-defense laws.

Now, Ruiz has questions.

“Did my son deserve to be...

You should buy one

I picked up one of these a few months back and figured I would pass on some information.

I use this impact for just about everything in the shop. IT is a great drill and screw driver. I bought a property with an old tin covered building on it. I used the impact to remove the ol,d metal and install new. A very good tool to have in your box.

A bad day on the road

Have you ever had one of those days when nothing seems to go right? I know I have. The one thing that I have learned with age is that you may not be able to control the event but you can control your response to the event. Many times my response to the event has been poor to say the least. Next time take a minute and evaluate your response. Willie Moore StreetRodding...

Take it for a spin Today

IN my opinion the number one issues with owning a classic car for most folks is the lack of use. So many things get in the way of enjoying our classic on a regular basis. Work, School Family and one million things.

While you might be inclined to safeguard your vintage auto by keeping it locked up in the garage, what’s the fun in that? Getting out on the road and showing off your ride isn’t only a thrill, but it also keeps it running well! Allowing a car to sit around for prolonged periods of...

Take a few minutes and detail it

A detail clean is the cornerstone of good car maintenance. By regularly getting down and dirty and cleaning every nook and cranny of your vehicle you can avoid the damaging buildup of dirt and grime. A dirty car can lead to poor performance, rusted parts, and chipping paint. Make sure to rinse and dry your car thoroughly after washing to remove residual soap scum. You also might want to consider adding a coat of wax to protect it from the elements and keep it looking classy. This will also help ...

Tip for keeping your classic in super shape

Even the most talented and knowledgeable professionals in any field need a second opinion now and then. If you perform your own car maintenance, you should still have your car checked regularly by a qualified mechanic. It’s easy to overlook simple adjustments or repairs that could result in larger problems down the road. Additionally, a professional mechanic may be able to find parts that might be difficult to track down and can often get them at a discounted price....

Tip for keeping your classic looking sharp

Tip for keeping your classic looking sharp.

Keep your ride covered when not in use.

Rain, wind, and sun are the enemies of classic cars. Prolonged exposure to water promotes the development of rust. Rust will eat away at your car, requiring you to hunt down hard-to-find replacement parts. Wind can blow objects into your car, resulting in scratches and dents. Direct sunlight can cause excessive heat, which can negatively impact various aspects of your vehicle. The simple act of covering you...

Smaller electric bead roller for any size shop

Smaller electric bead roller for any size shop

By virtue of its smaller size, the miniature bead roller also comes with some fringe benefits. “Instead of having a large, 24- or 36-inch throat machine, the user has a 6-inch throat machine,” said Mittler. “The user can save room in his shop, maybe even have two bead rollers, and do multiple jobs quickly with no change over time.”
Billet aluminum makes up the frame, and there are over 100 bead roll profiles one could work with. The depth of b...

Cool New Tool

Have you ever wished you could just magically lay your tools and parts anywhere you may be — on the fender of your car, on the roof, atop the engine or scoop, or in the case of GRYPMAT founder Tom Burden, right on the rounded nose of an F-16 military aircraft you’re working on? Best case scenario, if you’re under the hood you can lay a tool tray across the radiator or in the slant of the valve cover and hope it doesn’t fall — and forget laying parts on your paint, much less at an angle where th...

Happy Veterans Day

The military men and women who serve and protect the U.S. come from all walks of life; they are parents, children, grandparents, friends, neighbors and coworkers, and are an important part of their communities. Here are some facts about the veteran population of the United States:

16.1 million living veterans served during at least one war.
5.2 million veterans served in peacetime.
2 million veterans are women.
7 million veterans served during the Vietnam War.

Another great project for today

Another great project for today, Working on a 1937 Chevy coupe. The coupe has an Edelbrock carb on it and the idles a little rough. I removed the two air mixture screws and blew out the carb with compressed air. Readjusted and ran for a while. No real change in the motor. So now I am going to pull it apart and see what is inside. And here is also a photo of break time. ...

Tips if you are selling a vehicle Beware

Not every transaction is a potential scam, But you will need to use caution when dealing with an unknown buyer.
Common scams you should be aware of when selling your car include:
Offers to buy sight-unseen.
A buyer offering to buy your car without looking at it first should be considered a warning sign.
Often, this is part of a larger scam. The buyer will send a bad check or promise to wire money and have a different person pick up the vehicle.
Paying with checks or money orders.

Why not put the price on the For Sale Sign

Why not put the price on the For Sale Sign. I am at Cruising the coast this week in Biloxi. I have seen many cars for sale but only one out of the 100 I have seen have a price on the sign. I have sold many cars at local shows and I always put the price on the car. Why do people not put the price on the car? I just do not understand. What are your thoughts on this? Maybe if you have to ask you cannot afford it. I know we have all heard this. Just my two cents put a price on the damn sign so that ...

Road Trip 2017 Willie Moore

Road Trip 2017 Willie Moore Went to Kentucky this past summer to visit the Bourbon country and also made a deal on a 1965 Cobra. Picked up the cobra and then spent a few days taking all the beautiful country KY has to offer. The plan was to head back to Nashville and check in at the grand old opry. I have a 2013 Dodge 3500 as my tow vehicle. The water pump failed out side of Nashville with only 54K miles. Good think I had the cobra in the trailer. I unloaded the cobra on I65 and made it on over ...

Dyson Vacuum to build electric car

Looks like everyone is getting in on the electric car craze. I do not think I will ever own one.

It's official... Dyson, the privately held maker of the world's most powerful vacuum cleaners and hand dryers, is going to have an electric car on the market by the year 2020.

It's like the scenario of an over-budget ’80s action movie: billionaire mogul Sir James Dyson against billionaire mogul Elon Musk.

Dyson doesn't plan to tiptoe into the new venture, either.

According to Sir James ...

More Cuban Chrome

More Cuban Chrome. Here is a collection of photos recently taken by my friend the Swede while on location in Cuba. As you can tell by the photos the old classic rides are a alive and well in Cuba. So many are used as daily drivers and taxis. While talking with the swede about his trip he said he would not be going back. A very poor country at best and very run down. ...

What a mess we have here in Texas. So many folks who have been pushed out of their home and so much water damage. Some folks are still not able to get back in their home.
