PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you don’t want to talk No Problem  - But Please - List those Parts for Sale or Parts Needed!

As you all know locating any parts for these early GM vehicles is tough, the goal of this forum is to bring the restorers, lowriders, street & rat rodders together. 

There are plenty of forums out there and it's a pain trying to locate Chevy/GM parts tucked in all of those Ford, Dodge, Plymouth etc ads. Some forums don't like mixing restored cars with custom cars, we'll focus on the early BOWTIE's....but mix it up some. To be clear we love all vintage vehicles regardless of make..it's just tough locating the Govt Motors stuff!

To assist in your projects advertising is encouraged & will be FREE for both PRIVATE and COMMERCIAL sellers. 
Don't be a Bowtie Parts Hoarder!


Unlike many other forums you are encouraged to mention other websites and/or forums in your posts or signatures. We even have a list of other forums at the bottom of the page….this is a reference site.

Registration is open......SUGGESTIONS FOR FORMAT ARE WELCOME -and- PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT! ........... It's OK to just sign up ONLY to buy/sell parts!

Getting ready to weld on new steel deck on my newer 18' tilt car hauler. The old one used D rings up front and I used 3/8" chain with double hook up front. That trailer has the built in 4" ratchet strap setup on the rear (which I like).

This newer trailer had (4) flush mount anchors at each corner, Going to weld in the "D" ring style up front and use the same existing flush mounts on the rear. Plan to use 5/16" grade 70 chains up front this time.  I'll just use the 2" ratchet straps I already have on the rear.

Been using the straps wrapped around the rear axle and chains around the control arms (or whatever) up front on the old trailer with no problems.

Just wondering how you guys haul...do you prefer anchoring to the frame to limit body hop or go for the axle and front control arms or tire straps. I know in some situations you don't have a choice.

My granddaughter and I took the 33 Chevy over to the Aviation Museum of NH Car show today.  It's located at the Manchester Airport.  Beautiful day for a show.  Her favorite part was playing in the cockpit they had set up so kids could go in and hit the switches, dials and buttons.

Darn, I'm in a prime location for Monday's eclipse and I have no glasses.  Waited too late and now can't find anywhere that I can get on time.

Bummer... :-[

A battery technician with the Idaho Power Company was on lunch break when he noticed smoke coming from beneath the center console of his truck. The culprit, he was surprised to learn, was a bottle of water. "I looked over and noticed light was being refracted through a water bottle and starting to catch the seat on fire," said Dioni Amuchastegui in a video shared on the company's Facebook page on July 13.

The evidence shows how dangerous leaving a plastic bottle in one's car on a sunny day can be: two burn marks were left on the seat of Dioni's vehicle.

Firefighters are warning drivers about the hazard, too. In a test conducted by Oklahoma's Midwest City Fire Department, sunlight magnified by a water bottle reached 250 degrees, news channel KFOR reports. "The sunlight will come through, when it's filled with liquid, and act as a magnifying glass as you would with regular optics," said MCFD's David Richardson.

If you tote the same plastic water bottle day in and day out, you've probably noticed that after a day or two, your water starts to smell, and taste, like dirty socks. With the CamelBak Eddy Glass Water Bottle, you can ensure your fluids taste mountain-stream fresh from first sip to last. A silicon wrapping helps protect the bottle from impacts, and the comfy bite valve provides easy sipping.
 
"It uses the liquid and the clear material to develop a focused beam and sure enough, it can actually cause a fire, a combustion," Richardson explained.

The risk of such a disaster occurring is low, but officials say taking your water bottle with you when exiting the car is the best way to prevent this type of car fire.
