    Interesting 56/57

    Just thought I'd share these photos for whaqt they're worth. "Bob Coe's answer to the T-Bird/Mustang. He said later that it never ran like they hopes as they could not get it to keep tracktion coming out of the turns well enough. This car also ran in the mid 60's at Baerfield.in fort Wayne."

    Bad Shock

    Went to Cars and Coffee a couple weeks ago and haven't really looked at the '81 close since then. I wiped it down before the show and everything was clean. Yesterday I noticed a hazy oil film on the left rear wheel. The caliper looks dry so I stuck my phone under the front of the wheel and shot...

    Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2017 Coverage

    I went over for preview day today and took a few pictures. Here's one of my favorites just to get things started. I have been a fan of Mickey Thompson since the '60s. He was an amazing racer and innovator. This is one of 5 Z06s that Chevrolet sent him to prepare and race. More...

    News: re: John Hinckley JohnZ

    re: John Hinckley JohnZ I just read on the NCRS board that John has been ill for some time now. That would explain why we haven't heard from him lately in the C1/C2 Forum. I understand that he doesn't have access to a pc or phone. His address is listed in the below copied text from the NCRS...

    Dual 4s in a Bucket

    A friend asked me a while back if I wanted some dual 4bbl parts he had left over from a car I restored a long time ago. Of course I said yes. He had sold the car to another friend and then I was asked to finish the restoration. Part of that deal was to assemble a set of carbs from the 2 intakes...

    1981 St. Louis 2-tone

    In this video labeled as taken during 1981 production in St. Louis there is clearly a 2-tone shown on the line at 17 seconds into the video. We've always believed that the 2-tone combos were a Bowling green thing and only done in the new base/clear enamel finishes; all St Louis cars being...

    Chrome Air Cleaner Lid Comments

    A question on the NCRS Tech Forum about the air cleaner lid has me curious. An owner has an original car with a black painted lid. The guy that sold it to him said he never changed it and why would he? Some early magazine articles show a black lid. Of course these were probably pre-production...

    New Tires and Alignment

    Got the '81 out for the first time this year. We haven't been driving it much since the tires were way too old. The tread was 70% and there was only minor cracking along the beads. Once off they looked like new inside. Still smooth and shiny after about 20 years but it was the 20 years that I...
