    Pure Hell and Pure Heaven are both still around and still racing! I watched them both make exhibition runs at Eagle Field a few years back. They run nostalgia events now.

    Not surprising in this age of electronic information. Most people don't even care about printed magazines anymore. I've had a subscription to Hot Rod for decades, and it's had good eras, and horrible...

    Thanks Lash! Makes sense to me. Mario suggested I run my twin halogen lamps directed at the surface and then turn them off while painting. My spray gun is a gravity feed and only has a 16 oz. pot, so...

    I have the smaller 9" rotors on my Austin, with 10.5" drums on the rear. No power assist, but they'll easily lock up all 4 wheels in a panic stop and bring my car to a quick stop if need be. But my...

    Who would let a car be impounded for running out of gas? Can't imagine the tow fee was maybe $250 at most?

    As I said previously, I'd dispute it with my credit card company. I wouldn't take anything less than all my money back. That's total crap.

    Nope, never seen anything like it? And I wonder if it ever ran, or if it ran well? Crazy price, but I guess anything for a SOHC is crazy priced.

    A 406 would be the 400 crank, but with a larger bore. So unless you bore your engine to .030" over it wont be a 406c.i.

    Well I had a 1971 Camaro with BBC and cast iron heads, and they ran even smaller front disc brakes, so a 12" would be more than enough in an even lighter car. You'd be fine even with the smaller...

    Sure her '39 was a "Continental" and not just a regular Lincoln? Since there were only two '39 Continentals built, and one prototype was destroyed, the one in my link is the only other one made.
