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 ...

By Robert Dean:
"I’m not a Texan. I don’t adore the Lone Star State. I’m a transplant who’s lived in Austin for the last four years. I can’t name the state fish, I don’t understand the thing with mums at Homecoming, and I think chicken fried steak sucks. I don’t care about Friday Night Lights.
But I married into a Texas family. A Texas family with crazy deep roots. My wife is a direct descendant from the...

Good advice on Vehicles after the Hurricane

As you begin the process of rebuilding, obviously making sure your family is safe and has a roof over their head is most important. However, your transportation needs will soon come into play and there will be challenges. Here are some key points to ponder.

At this point, it appears that there will be more cars that need to be replaced than there are cars for sale in the hurricane area. This is going to create car shortages of both new and used cars. Pickups and SUVs will be shortest in ...

Flooding down in Texas Continues

Flooding down in Texas Continues. As Harvey pushes east the trouble in Houston Texas continues. Several of the water shed are still at peak capacity and the banks which are made of dirt are showing signs of leakage. The engineers are letting the water out causing still more flooding in downstream areas. The Brazos river is out of the banks and more rescues are taking place today. Hopefully things top out in the near future. Willie Moore...

Classic cars feed the hungry


A guy looked at a Corvette the other day and said, "I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost."

I replied I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it, it fed the people who make the tires, it fed the people who made the components that went into it, it fed the people in the copper mine who mined the copper for the wires, it fed people in Decatur IL. at Caterpillar who make the trucks that haul the copper ore.

The Ford Edsel cost to Ford

Ford spent a year aggressively marketing the Edsel — named after Henry Ford’s son — ahead of its 1957 release. It was to be the “car of the future,” made available on dealership lots on what Ford dubbed “E-Day.” Despite the hype, the car was a commercial disaster. It was considerably overpriced, disappointingly not futuristic, and generally ugly. Ford ceased the car’s production after only two years, losing an estimated $350 million....
