Demonstrating my BendPak QuickJack BL-5000EXT

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Demonstrating my BendPak QuickJack BL-5000EXT
I bought this last year and have been asked a few times about it so decided to do a few videos of the operation. I’m happy with it, I would have preferred a four-post lift but my detached garage was built by the previous owner for three smaller cars. This is the best I can do for my existing garage.

Woodruff Carburetor

I wanted to thank @Dana for his exceptional service and skill. I've never had much success rebuilding carbs for some reason. I don't really know why but I just am not good at it. I guess you have to know your limitations.

I've tried a few other people and companies and have been consistently disappointed until I had @Dana rebuild the carb for my 1972 John Deere 1020. It wasn't running bad but the chock cable was seized so starting in cold weather was...

How to make vinyl stickers, ie. registration, county

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on How to make vinyl stickers, ie. registration, county
Ok, so a couple years ago, after I got my plate restored, I bought an aftermarket reproduction Pennsylvania 70 registration sticker for my 69 Fury. Now, when I retire, we plan to move to Tennessee but I can't find anyone that makes the registration stickers or county stickers for Tennessee. I was thinking about trying it myself but all the videos I've come across on the internet seem to be lacking in details. Has anyone tried this?

Haven't posted a car for sale in a while but this one looks to nice to be a parts car or a derby car. Posting in hope someone will save it. Looks to be a great entry level c-body. I love the color.

Looks like it might be rough but I think they're tough to find an the price seems right, 35 plus 15 shipping.

Ionia Mfg. Co. Story

I scroll through Pinterest occasionally for all car pics mostly and came across this.

I thought it was a pretty cool pic but couldn't figure out why Dodge would have been shipping bodies to the Ionia Mfg Co. I did a quick google search and found this article. I thought it was interesting and worth the read. Hope someone else finds it interesting as well. I didn't realize most "Woodies" of all brands were manufactured by the same company....
