Re: Hot August Nights 2021

I will be at the swap meet as a vendor, Reno is only a 3 hour drive for me. I'll probably have my Sport Fury there to go cruising in the evenings.

Re: Rich Zocchi - Walnut Creek, CA, USA (original builder)

Richard was a customer of mine before he passed away several years ago. The paint color was a pearl yellow-green, and would change in different lights. I recall seeing this car at its debut at Autorama, and a few later shows. Haven't seen it for several years now.

Re: chrome plating

He's in southern Ca. but is up here often.

He doesn't do anodizing, but will probably know someone that does. I had a hard time finding someone for the anodizing when I was doing my '59.

Re: Cannot get tranny out of neutral

Either the selector cable is frozen up from rust, or the manual valve in the trans is locked up. You'll need to disconnect the cable at the transmission to see which it is. Rusted up cables are somewhat common, but I've seen transmission fluid turn to varnish from setting many years, which will requ...

Re: Brake Line / Fluid

I've changed all my cars over to DOT 5 fluid, since it's non-hygroscopic it will not attract moisture into the system like conventional fluid. You'll need to replace any rubber part of the system to avoid contamination. I didn't use my '58 Dodge wagon for close to ten years, and when I pulled it out...
