Re: Carlisle 2019!

Finally, the banner arrived. But, I'm disappointed. The hem stitching is too obvious - and, they did not account for the dimensions, before they hemmed. They subtracted the hem from the dimensions I had supplied. I will get this addressed, before I recommend anyone buy banners. But, so close! The n...

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

Well, I don't know if my pieces can be saved, John - but the company claims they are going to refund my money! We'll see. Meanwhile, I'll check out these other companies and try again. At this point, I have nothing to lose.

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

I received this note from the company: Years ago we use to do some auto trim parts, but that changed in 2013 when we were bought out. You will need to get these parts stripped, then buffed to help bring some of the luster back, and then brite dip clear anodized. You might try the following companies...

Re: Martha!

A fun video snippet from a DVD I recently bought... Yeah, it's a '53 Suburban, but the '54 is virtually unchanged except for the badging (Cambridge and Cranbrook Savoy Suburban for '53, vs. Belvedere and Plaza Suburban for '54). Martha is a Plaza Suburban:

Re: Faulkner gets a Redo

Disaster strikes. I've been so upset about this, I waited a day before posting. Yesterday, I went and picked up the aluminum from the reanodizer (Industrial Metal Plating, Reading PA). The inserts came out well enough, but you can still see the marks of where the stainless held it in place. I suppos...

Re: PAINFUL BUT GOTTA DO IT.

Great! Once Denny introduces himself with a little bit about himself, I'll put a page in the Showcase for him - and move your Greenie Showcase thread there, as the previous owner. Along with the previous eBay content, because I throw nothing away! The history of these cars must be respected. Hey, we...

Re: PAINFUL BUT GOTTA DO IT.

Ah... That car event I cited was held at one of his radio stations - a different address. Yeah, I just Googled this address and found it:

Dick, I Googled "Dennyland", and the only reference I could find to it was a car event Denny had once held at his radio station (or does he own more than one?)...

Post ‘em here! I’ll shrink them for you.
Seriously, Ed, if you upload them here, I will reduce their size and replace them in the post. Then you can download them for posting on ForwardLook.net.

Re: PAINFUL BUT GOTTA DO IT.

Wow, Dick. Greenie's gone - but, your gentleman is quite the entrepreneur, as I read about him (I won't reveal his name without his permission). But you've told him about the site, perhaps he will turn up here - and we will continue to see and hear about Greenie.

Congratulations!

Re: PAINFUL BUT GOTTA DO IT.

Off to the auction today... (*sniff*). Shamelessly ripped off of Facebook. Kinda a sad day, I'm taking one of my cars to the Dave Rupp Auction in Ft. Lauderdale to see if l can find a buyer. It's painful but working part time doesn't give me much time to take proper care of all four cars. It going o...
