Sat, 16 Jul 2011 02:59:39 +0000Surfer Blood147751@/forum/discussions
I'm looking for something that I am afraid might be gone forever. But I hope someone here can tell me where I can find it, if it still exists.
I'm looking for a body shop, or a guy who works out of his garage - that can do some solid bodywork on a pre 1960's car, and who I can pay for the work in bits over the course of 6 months or so.
I don't want to take it to a big modern body shop where the employees would be lost without a computer program to give an estimate or order parts.
And I don't want to take it the kind of place where they restore classics to immaculate condition at astronomical prices.
I've got an old Chevy that needs the better part of an entire floor welded into it, and probably the bottom couple inches of the doors.
A few years ago I knew five guys that could do it, but they've all retired.
The car runs and drives, and I can easily get it anywhere from Bakersfield to San Diego - that's about the geographical range I'm looking in.
Thanks in advance for any info you can share.]]>steering column

Tue, 26 Jul 2011 21:05:36 +0000TOM-WA-148243@/forum/discussions
Very strange when the car is first started I get a steady reading of about 6 PSI from the pump.. BUT WHEN THE CAR REACHES OPERATING TEMP THE PRESSURE DROPS OFF DRASTICALLY TO 0 PSI?
Any thoughts on this and could it be a reason why the car will NOT RUN and shuts down when I get to operating temp?
DON'T RUSH TO JUDGEMENT
Sometimes Less is better... I described the problem I was having and got LOTS AND LOTS of input...Obviously I considered all the options and based on what I read I thought that I had had figured out from the input that I was experiencing an strange case of VAPOR LOCK that just came out of the blue.
I was all set to install an electrical fuel pump and just figured that for whatever reason VAPOR LOCK was the problem and I would live with it..
Don't know why but I decided for some reason today to pull the fuel pump and put back on the old one that I had sitting around for years.
Wellllllllllll.. LOOKS like that solved the problem..no loss of fuel pressure, no VAPOR LOCK and so far it's back to running like it had in the past.
Sometimes we we create bigger problems when the issue is minor and was probably the very FIRST thing that we should have done.
Thanks for all the assistance..

Fri, 29 Jul 2011 20:35:29 +0000dannyo148430@/forum/discussions
My grandma is wanting to restore an old chevy that has been in storage and inoperable for decades. There is no AC in the car and GMA doesn't think we should add it. I like the idea of having wings on a car and it seems to be a pretty good alternative to AC. Except here is the problem: The car doesnt have wings and adding them as a permanent feature is not an option. I haven't been able to find any place that sells non-permanent wings that you can just fit into the window frame[while the window is down]. So I have designed a wing that you can fit into the window....but first I have a couple questions before I do that.
Do you know of any place that sells temporary wings that you can just place into the window frame, to get more breeze in the car?
If I do go forward and submit my design to a manufacturer do you think that other people in the classic car community would be interested in this option breezy option to AC?
Any things that you can think of that I need to include in my design of this AC alternative?

Kim]]>Advice needed (trying to fulfill fiance's dream)
Wed, 31 Aug 2011 03:00:16 +0000fzzychicken149896@/forum/discussions
My fiance would really love to have a classic car to drive as we depart our wedding next summer. We are trying to keep things practical on the $ front, and rentals from traditional companies are out of our reach. So I have a couple questions and would appreciate any advice you have to offer!
Do any have any suggestions on companies, dealer or even private owners that lend cars?
Hypothetically is there any chance any of you would consider letting complete strangers borrow your car for a brief drive? (I would assume there would be some sort of agreement about insurance/ liability to protect you and your vehicle)
Thanks so much!]]>Auction of Italia

Wed, 14 Sep 2011 01:41:24 +0000Jon B150537@/forum/discussions
It's easy to get lost when trying to navigate around the Classiccar Forums, in this one respect the layout is not user-friendly. So you can think you're in one place when in fact your in another. There's no "guide" to look at, showing the whole picture, with a "you are here" sticker on it!
To make sure you get where you want to go, BOOKMARK the correct forum when you get there (or make it one of your "favorites").
The Hudson Forum is one of many forums. You can see them all by hitting the INDEX tab toward the left side, near the top of this page. If you ever get lost, hit INDEX. Then you can look down, spot the Hudson forum, and go directly there.
Once you're in the Hudson Forum, you can simply make your post, or could go to the Hudson sub-forums: "DISCUSSIONS" or "STREET RODS". "Street Rods" is for Hudsons that have been significantly hopped up (Brand-X drive train, chopped, channeled, etc. etc.)-- photos, tips, interchanges, etc. "Discussions" is for non-Hudson automotive comments, rants, or anything that might be controversial. The "regular" Hudson forum is for topics having to do with technical, historic, or restoration aspects of (more-or-less) original Hudsons, or with activities having to do with enjoying your Hudson. Not a "clean" division, of course, but it helps to sort things out.
I'm posting this because some of our newer participants or visitors may not have quite gotten the hang of this thing yet, and maybe some of our old participants might have missed a point or two about the operation of the forum.]]>Labor Day Car Show, Henderson, NV
