A FREE forum with -member photo gallery- for the vintage Chevy, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and any GM builders.

PLEASE Sign Up & Post in the Classified Section  - If you dont 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!
If you have any problems with registration, account login, posting or uploading
Please contact me via: borderdrop@yahoo.com

Anyone put a V-8 in a S-10?? I have a clean S-10 body but motor is bad...thinking of doing a S-10 swap,  I am aware that there is a kit for these , motor mounts , headers, and radiator update, wanting to go 350 with 350 transmission  with a carburetor set up...looking for a running vehicle so I can do the swap..still have a lot of information gathering to do....any thoughts?...have priced a Vin 5 s-10 rebuilt motor, and feel that the price is outrageous, and I think I would get more fun with the V-8 set up

Blessed are those that can give without remembering and take without forgetting.
One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he
asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money
from you, I'm doing community service this week The florist was
pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his
bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm
doing community service this week. The cop was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a politician came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his
bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm
doing community service this week. The politician was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen politicians lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between
the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

As Ronald Reagan said: "Both politicians and diapers need to be
changed often and for the same reason.

If you don't forward this, you have no sense of humor. Nothing bad
will happen, however, you must live with yourself knowing that
laughter is not in your future. . . . .

I love Stephen Wright
 
Steven Wright is the famous comic scientist who once said, "I woke up one morning, and all of my stuff had been stolen and replaced by exact duplicates." His mind sees things differently than most of us do - here are some of his gems:

- I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.

- Borrow money from pessimists - they don't expect it back.

- Half the people you know are below average.

- 99% of lawyers give the rest a bad name.

- 82.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

- A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.

- A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

- If you want the rainbow, you got to put up with the rain.

- All those who believe in psycho kinesis, raise my hand.

- The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

- I almost had a psychic girlfriend, but she left me before we met.

- Okay, so what's the speed of dark?

- How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?

- If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

- Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

- When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

- Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.

- Hard work pays off in the future - laziness pays off now.

- I intend to live forever - so far, so good.

- If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

- Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

- What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

- My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."

- Why do psychics have to ask you for your name.

- If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

- A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

- Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

- The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread.

- To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism - to steal from many is research.

- The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

- The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.

- The colder the x-ray table, the more of your body is required to be on it.

- Everyone has a photographic memory - some just don't have film.

- If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

- If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights work?

Period Correct Restoration Project?

What is the value of this project?


Neighbor is the 2nd owner of this 1951 Ford 2DR ShoeBox.  It was stored outside covered with a tarp for years.  The 1954 Olds engine is stuck (been lubricating the pistons etc).

The body is pretty solid, stock Ford rear end, and stock suspension with drum brakes.

Here are the notes from the owner:

1951 Ford 2 Door Coupe
1954 Olds Engine

Bored/Balanced
5 Jahns pistons
Extra supported crankshaft
Engle camshaft
Iskenderian springs and rockers
Dual point ignition
4 barrel carb
1956 rebuilt Olds heads
Headers
New radiator (OEM type)
Balanced drive shaft
1953 Cadillac Hydrostick transmission (rebuilt)

Engine only had a few hours running time.  Engine rebuilt years ago in NJ in the 1960s.

Xtras:  1953 Desosto Grill (mint condition), two large chrome front arrow shaped lights, cannot recal their provenance,  extra 1954 Old heads, extra carb and distributor.

FYI Only: Found this article related to the 1951 Ford ShoeBox:

https://www.hagerty.com/media/magazine-features/the-shoebox-that-saved-ford-remains-affordable-today/


I can get more info and pictures if needed.
