Man....I know this.......darn it. It was in the seventies, I think it was an AMC. I remember working on some seventies car with vacuum wipers.

Oh, and by the way, I dig vacuum wipers. They are vintage, they remind you that you are driving an old car.

Good job, Pontiac "Eight lug" wheels. Ford also experimented with these as well. If you pick up a book that shows some styling exercises at Ford in the fifties you will see a clay mockup of a Continental with these same type wheels. The reason I know this is a friend of mine bought a 58 T-Bird with a set of them on it. They were Kelsey Hayes the company that made wheels for Ford for years. I thought I hit pay dirt and did a lot of research on them. I never found that they had ever went into production as an OE or in the aftermarket, they simply didn't exist. Seeing the EXACT wheels and brakes on this prototype in the book I figured these suckers were worth a mint on Ebay. I didn't get crap for them, four or five hundred as I remember for the set.

Man, if I was into Fords I would have paid thru the nose for these things, they were COOOOOOL.

Anyway, 1ownerT it's your floor.

Yep..

In the United States, the first license plates used on automobiles were seen in New York, in 1901. The N.Y. plates actually had no numbers - from 1901 through 1902, the plates were usually leather pads or flat metal plates, with attached letters indicating the initials of the car owner! New York didn't actually produce a state-issued license plate until 1910, when a cream on blue steel plate was made - undated, with riveted numbers. Plates in New York from 1901 through 1909 were owner-provided plates, usually referred to by plate collectors as "pre-states", because they were "pre-state issue".

What motor does a 1965 Buick Slylark Gran Sport have in it, and why did Buick Lie about it?

Did it have something to do with the wildcat 445 on the air cleaner? I know it confused me at first when I heard they put torque numbers instead of CID.
