    I am close to GWB on the other side of NJ :-)

    I used to go to Phila very often, but that was before my kids were born. If you are ever going to travel to NYC via GWB, shoot me a PM and if you have some spare time, we could meet. I am right of Rt80/Turnpike about 2 miles south of the bridge.

As of 09/01/2011 - I sold my '63 to a kid who knocked on the door and said he was 'in love with it' ... 2 weeks and $4500. later - it was gone.

Fair thee well, Madame Garrett!

( i wonder what P.o.Crap I can find NEXT to diddle with?? )

Cheers, ya'll.

Howdy, all. It's been a long, bleary cold winter and I haven't spent much time doing anything to the Impala other than running her through the annual state inspection which came due 01/31.

You gotta love these old cars... my friends and my mechanic always scratch their heads ... "Needed nothing" .. "just adjusted her carb again, and perhaps a new tailpipe is on the schedule - but otherwise, needed nothing" my mechanic said. LOL.

No 'modules'...

Wow. who knew? Last weekend I replaced the intake/exhaust manifold gaskets (which were original, believe it or not and crumbling apart) and while we had it off, re-built the carburetor.


This whiney, tickety-tick miserable little 6-cylinder actually purrs like a kitten now, and I can't beleive how quiet it is.

It seems to have smoothed out the idle a lot, too. Not perfect - but it's TONS better. At least I can stand driving it now!

.. all i can say is: God, I hate this P.O.S.

LOL. I seriously need to find an engine. This car's like my 1st wife.. i WANT to love her.. I'm spending a FORTUNE trying to love her.. I just don't. And she's driving me nuts.


Well - she made a 200+ mile trip up to and back from the mountains, now without groaning and complaining and spewing oil constantly. This 6 has GOT to go.

What a chattery piece of crap. ~ M.

Here's a pic of the beast, after a decent (cheap) paint job.

I didn't do 100% on the body work, and it shows in a few places - but remember, this is a 2nd car / beater - and was bound for a crusher had I not saved it.

Lesson learned - I'd do more prep work next time, but for now - all the neighbors as "ooh-ing and "ahh-ing" over the 'new' car in the driveway.

Some people can't believe it's the same car. (lol). Amazing what a coat of paint...
