Nice write up from a fellow Streetrodder


Thomas Brewer

Nice write up from a fellow Streetrodder


I may have screwed up as a significant other, a Son, or as a friend, because I don't always say or do the "right things". I have a smart mouth, I have secrets, and I have scars, because I have a history. Some people love me, some like me, and some people don't. I have done good in my life. I have done bad in my life. I don't get dressed up half the time. I am random, and I am silly. I will not pretend to be someone I am not. I am ...

Put a price on it

Cruising the Coast 2019. We just got in from cruising the coast and what a great week we had. So many cars to see and great folks to visit with. This is the 3rd year we have attended this show and we will be back next year. I will have the photos up in a few days. As always there were many cars for sale. I would say that maybe 10% of the for sale signs I saw actually had a price listed. I just do not understand why someone would put a for sale sign on a car and not list the price. I have sold hu...

Buyer Beware

Buyer Beware. I have bought many cars online and site unseen. I buy just by looking at the photos and asking questions about the condition. For the most part gone are the days of truth and a hand shake deal. When buying a car in this manner ask a lot of questions and if someone tells you they do not know you can take it one of two ways. Either they do not know or they just do not want to say. I have seen it both ways. Get some great photos and look the photos over closely. Ask a lot of question...

CPP Power steering gear box

CPP Power steering gear box. Working on getting the power steering gear box hosed up on my 1955 Chevy. Here are a few things I have learned. There are two fillings on the gear box an inlet and a return. Neither are marked on the gear box. Both fittings where the hoses connect to the gear box are the same size. Unscrew the fittings and you will see one is larger than the other where it screws into the gear box. The larger one will be the pressure inlet and the smaller is the return line. A small ...

Red Diamond sweet Tea

Red Diamond sweet Tea. Wow can you believe the signs of the times. I saw gas yesterday for $1.18 here in Alvin Texas at a local dive gas station next to a local smoke shop. How long has it been since you have seen that price. I was in HEB yesterday picking up a few things and look Red Diamond sweet Tea a Texas main stay by many a folks description is at $2.38 a Gallon. Hard to believe that a gallon of sweet tea costs more than a gallon of Gas. Gotta Love Texas my friends. Willie Moore Streetrodd...

New Friend in Belgium

New Friend in Belgium. I recently sold a 37 Chevy coupe to a man overseas. I received a phone call today from a man in New Friend in Belgium who has been working to make some repairs on the Chevy coupe. The coupe looked very slick on the top, Nice paint, Decent interior, ran and drove like an old hot rod does. Usually when the car looks good and runs decent I do not spend a lot of time looking over the welds, Alignment, Bolt up on the chassis and such. I want to thank Wes at Cobble Stone Customs...

Crappy Craftsmanship

Crappy Craftsmanship

I pick up a 37 Chevy coupe a few months back that looked very good from the top but was pretty crappy on the bottom. I do not understand how a guy can put in so much work to make the top look good and take so many short cuts on the bottom of the car. I think most folks just do not realize how dangerous weak welds are on the chassis of your hot rod. I had a friend who built a model A and installed a LS motor into the A model. He was taking off from a dead stop, got the car...

Impact on Car Buying and Shipping

Impact on Car Buying and Shipping
• Looking to buy a car during the current state of our country?

• The ports are open, ships are still crossing the oceans, Most Companies continues to receive, load, and ship cars in all major ports around the United States.
• Encouragingly, while Chinese car factories are already back in business, most U.S. and European manufacturers have vowed to open back up in April. This keeps us hopeful that a return to normal for the world's economy is on the hor...

Lokar Shifter Install

Lokar Shifter Install
I just installed a new Lokar shifter on my 37 Chevy Coupe. I have installed several over the years that were a cradle type that straddled the transmission. The one I just installed on a 700R transmission mounted to the tail shaft with two molts was super easy and fast to install. If you are looking for a new shifter for your street rod I would recommend a LOKAR for all your shifter needs. Lokar Shifter Install Willie Moore Streetrodding...

Earls Electric Fuel Pump Repair

Earls Electric Fuel Pump Repair. My 51 Mercury had a very nice looking Earls electric fuel pump installed to supply the Fast Burn Fuel Injection system. I am not sure how long the pump has been on the car. The pump failed due to the gas turning bad. I pulled the pump and looked online for a replacement. The replacement pump was around $325 to replace the pump and the housing. I puled the pump from the housing and there were numbers on it. I went online and found the replacement pump. The cost wa...

Too much Horse Power for an old ride

So clean out the shop now and get rid of all that crap you have have been tripping over all winter. Willie Moore Streetrodding...

Power steering Cooler

“A power-steering cooler is always beneficial, as it eliminates heat. This is the main contributor to power-steering system problems, Anything you can do to make the system run cooler will make all of the components last longer and perform more consistently. In general, power-steering coolers significantly reduce the temperature of the fluid by both increasing the system’s fluid capacity as well as the amount of time it takes for the fluid to return to the pump where it is pressurized and heated...

Ford and Chevy

Ford and Chevy

I have had many Street Rods over the years and most Fords I have owned had Chevy drive trains. I personally think it is because the Chevy parts were cheaper and easier to locate than the Ford parts, What I did not understand was the fact so many folks take it so personal when you drop a great running Chevy motor into an old Ford. I received a phone call last week on a 35 Ford coupe with a Chevy motor and the guy was so pissed off. He could not believe what I had done. I did not...

1956 Chevy Wiring and Instrument Upgrade

Just completed the wiring and instrument upgrade on a 1956 Chevy Wagon. We bought the American auto wire direct fit harness, Dolphin gauges and a new billet insert for the dash. The job went really smooth and took close to 20 Hours to complete. The harness was labeled from end to end and the instructions were super easy to follow if there were any questions. Overall a nice clean and easy job to complete. If you are thinking or rewiring your old rod do not be afraid it is a simple job. Willie Moo...

Must have been at least 200 Mustangs from 1973 and back. You just never know what you will see when you take a minute and slow roll. Willie Moore Streetrodding...

Put a Price on it 2

Here are a few more fine examples of folks who must not know what they want for the car they are trying to sell. When you buy a house or just about anything else there is always a starting price listed. Why do these fools expect someone to walk up and make an acceptable offer when there is no starting price. These guys must think they will get an offer above what they really think it is worth. I just do not understand the thinking. Willie Moore Streetrodding...

The Work Continues 1933 Ford

The Work Continues 1933 Ford. I bought a 1933 Ford two door sedan a while back and have been working on completing a few repairs. I noticed the rear axle bearing was leaking so I pulled the axle. The housing was packed full of silicone on the outside of the bearing where the axle flange connects. When I examined the bearing there was no o ring or oil seal on the bearing. There was also no place in the housing for a seal. I called the previous owner and had told me he had had the rear end narrowe...
