Nothing you're considering doing can't be undone but even if it were, so what? Make the car what you want and enjoy it, that's why you own it...right?

Wow, that brings back an old memory. Back when I was drafted into the U.S. Army, I drove a '62 tri-power 406 Ford that I hide in a nearby town in Georgia while in basic. One weekend I drove home to...

An important detail that I suspect is often overlooked and I can't say for sure decades later that the few conversions done in my vehicles included this.

Clearly I don't have the experience that you have but I've done a few, GM mostly and have had a couple done for me (Chryslers). Complaints about poor cooling after a conversion are pretty widespread...

Your experience is not typical and when you see what the automotive engineers did to provide adequate cooling performance with R134, you'll understand why many systems designed for R12 don't cool...

I'd love to stop by Tom's place someday, he was a great source of encouragement and information when I build my 406.

I'll never again put R134 in a system designed for R12, you'll never be satisfied with the performance. If you want to be environmentally responsible, changeover to a hydrocarbon refrigerant rather...

Air conditioned mine a couple of years ago and I love it! Did a large mini split but no heat pump. I do have a 220V space heater that will quickly take the chill out if need be. My garage is still...

Considering I've owned this car for over 40 years, I've done pretty well on avoiding going overboard...at least until that thermostat gasket leaked!

Here we go again - project creep!

We've all been there and it looks like I'm heading there again although it's unlikely it will be anything like the last time. Last time I blew out a thermostat O-ring and ended up replacing the...

Interesting, I remember finding a couple of the bolts were loose some time back and thought it was because I failed to add lock-tite, unlikely tho. Now I think it wasn't so much that they were loose...

Antenna...or not?

While I'm replacing my gas tank I thought I might as well replace the non-working, aftermarket electric antenna I installed decades ago. It only worked for a few years and I don't really use the...

63 Gasser

I know this makes purists crazy but I think it's a beautiful example of a vette gasser.

FWIW, I had this tank cleaned out and coated 20 years ago. In the end it wasn't worth it, not that it was expensive but I've been plagued with debris from the tank for years now. If it's rusty,...

How thick are they? I assume there are two of them, both equal in size and thickness?
