Re: Finally acquired my '31 AA!

I just noticed that old GE refrigerator next to the newer one with a sign on it. I have one just like it and it's still working. I keep my beer in it. The blue light still works when you open the door. Can't beat R-12 for coldness.

Re: Flathead V8 Installation

55 would be OHV not flathead just saying. That rear end is going to dictate your speed. A lot of work for very little improvement in my mind. You may want to upgrade that rear end while your at it. I have a FH V8 in my 31 Roadster with a 39 rear end. Makes a big difference. You need to give some tho...
