    Halloween story

    So, it’s Halloween and I’m standing outside the house wearing my crossed flags Corvette cap (a close as I get to a costume…) handing out candy to the over 200 munchkins who come around.

    I hope that both of you and your cars were unscathed by the storm that came through Carlisle on Saturday evening. And what about the palm trees and pink flamingos at your Carlisle Caribbean Cabana? Please let us know. Regards, Jeff

    '66 radio - AM/FM indicator colors?

    I'm looking to replace the aftermarket radio in my '66 with a correct AM/FM. I've checked the archives here and on NCRS and the more I look into this radio stuff, the more confused I get.

    need a new radio

    Now that it's winter, I'm finally replacing my leaking radiator with the DeWitts I ordered at Carlisle and figured why not replace the heater core while I'm at it.
