    Anybody here ever tried turbo chargers on your engines. I'm amazed at the power that can be created. Interested in your thoughts. A Gayle Banks twin turbo charged small block can get over a 1,000 horsepower and torque that will make your eyes bleed :) Would be awesome eye candy as well....

    Help!!!! Have bad squeak in rear of 32 Ford. I think it is the urethane bushings in the trianglated mounting bars or the bushings for the coil-overs. I saw a video for mounting dropped spindles and a arms and the installer used chassis grease on the thru bolts and the bushings. My question is there a special grease to use or would a anti-size compound work? What have you used to stop the squeak the frame is less than 1k miles old. Thanks Jim M 1karnut

    Does anybody make Urethane Bushings that hold the rank and pinion to the frame for the Mustang II suspensions? The rubber ones in my car are less than a year or so old and they are all split up on the front, Its possible they are overtightened but even so, still ruined really. I would think urethane would hold up best if they make them.

    If you are familiar with the headliner of a 37 Ford, you will remember there is a header panel in the front that covers the windshield hinges and wiper motor. Do most people just eliminate that panel and run the headliner behind the windshield window garnish? And after some good help in my post about "37 Glass", it occurs to me that I guess the headliner goes in before the glass and garnishes to hold the headliner around the back and quarter windows. Am I correct there????

     unning Route 66 this past weekend Stopped in Santa Rosa at the museum the Greybeards like to rest at. It seems Bubba from Bubba's garage up the street was told by his brother that he should get into heavy construction. Well, Bubba being Bubba knew the Museum had the perfect starting point for his "Heavy Construction" vehicle and the result only took a few hours. Or, in other words, what was he thinking?
