Adjusted the brakes on the 300F and ordered a rebuild kit for the leaky fuel pump. Also spent several hours cleaning out sand, gravel and critter nests from the frame rails and other nooks and crannies. What a mess. Even had a dead critter in the rear box section behind the spring perch. Some furry thing with stripes. Had to fish it out and the nest with a wire. YUCK! My car is probably 5 pounds lighter now.

It's what happens when you revive a car that's been sitting for a long time, especially when it's been in a barn or stored outside.

Got the fuel pump kit today from http://then-now-auto.com/fuel-pumps/ today and redid the pump. Very quick shipping. You can see where it was leaking from the edge of the diaphragm. Fortunately just to the outside and not into the engine although it wouldn't have been long before it got there. Hardest part was getting the aluminum plug out of the pivot shaft hole. I think it was time for a rebuild.

At the monthly US-car summer meeting in my town I snapped a pic of the grille of my '57 Windsor, with its exact 'stock' '57 Windsor-brother driving up in the background...

Drove my '56 Savoy to work today and had an older gentleman in a 2dr hardtop '57 Savoy driving behind me from Santa Paula to Oxnard. I also passed a '54 Cadillac ragtop in Santa Barbara. Sorry no pictures. I'm not coordinated enough to mess with my phone while driving.

Seats in my 56 Windsor needed repairs.
I emailed to SMS and they sent me seat material samples.
It was exactly what I needed. I ordered.
About two weeks from order to shipment.
I am very satisfied. The seat material is excellent. Soon seats will go to a local upholsterer.

I just got done driving my 57 Chrysler through a pretty big storm. It started raining pretty hard out of nowhere. So no big deal, just put on the windshield wipers and cruised on home like nothing! Did really well too.

Made a super lucky find yesterday at a local junkyard: got this OEM rubber trunk mat out of a 1958 Belvedere sedan.
Installed it in my car and cleaned it up today, and I couldn't be happier with the results!

Looks amazingly nice - don't forget to check under it once and a while, those rubber mats was speeding up rust issues if moist and/or water collected under them.

Sanded and painted the bay behind the grill. Sandblasted the brackets that go in side of it and tomorrow I'm going to paint them.

I finally gave my other 60 project a quick once over. The body has little rust but trunk and drop panels do. Seats are rock hard, need complete redo, but covers are complete for patterns. Hosed an inch of dust off engine and it appears complete and not siezed but starter dragged as I turned the fan. The car is missing the ignition switch. Are factory style still available?. I am going to attempt to start it soon as my other project has stalled due to a lack of welding skill. It is improving though.

Yes, OEM Ignition switches with cylinders are still available. Gary Goers carries them Download a catalog here http://chryslerclub.org/PDF%20files/GOERS.pdf
Also on Ebay, both switches and lock cylinders.

Took Horrie out for a road trip today. Maintaining him, yeah, somebody has got to do it ...

Received a lot of thumbs-up here, totally different from The Netherlands, where most people really try hard to pretend they do not see you when passing ... Envy, I guess. But not here, refreshing to receive all this positive comments driving up and down Main St, during Memorial Day weekend and locally Bishop Mule Days.

Doing very well, and we decided to go for the mountains. The ones on FaceBook will have seen my photos there.
At some point, Horrie began to sputter and eventually just gave up. Nothing, in the middle of the scorching hot desert. Hell, no!

Amazingly how many people stop to offer you help, so different here in the US of A than in The Netherlands ...

The way he stopped, made me think it was fuel. Having fueled up and only done some 27 miles, it could be the fuel pump or worse, the filter in the tank.

Lucky Horrie has his OEM glass bowl filter. This showed there was not enough - or no - fuel flowing.

With the few tools I found in the trunk, I could take off the glass bowl and confirmed there was no fuel coming. Either fuel, fuel pump or clogged filter.

Happily, there was a spare fuel pump in the trunk. Replaced it, and of we went!

You see, always carry a spare fuel pump in your trunk! Saves you a lot of money not having to be towed.

And a glass bowl fuel filter really helps you to quickly diagnose the problem too.

Only doubt I have now, is that the replacement fuel pump has a longer arm, going inside the block. But it works.
Question: looking at the photos, which do you think is correct?

Took a club tour about 120 mile round trip to a nice lunch spot, the Crow and Gate English style pub. Visited the home of a new member after lunch, who owns a 1970 AAR Cuda 340 six pak that he bought new, with ONLY 8315 miles on it. All totally original down to the Goodyear Polyglas tires. It was last licensed in 1977, and is insured for a large sum!!

Got my tailpipes and mufflers from Waldron's. The car already had new head pipes from the 300 club. Hopefully it all fits together. Not sure when I'll get to it though.

One of the most difficult materials to photograph, but I think you can get the idea. No longer stock looking but good enough until I can find repops.

I used 400, 800, 1200, 2000 grit wet/dry and final buffing compound with a small drill sized waffle pad

Top one is a Carter. Cross-reference pump number stamped on edge with what is correct for the 325 D500. If it matches, then rebuild that one. Actually, I would rebuild both of them to set them up for today's gas. Or second one may fail soon as well. Don't know what make the second one is, but if you send some photos to Then and Now, they may be able to help you out. BTW, you can buy the rebuild kits from them, or they will rebuild your pumps.

Hi Jim.
I'm glad you have had the chance to take Neil's Dodge out for a run. Neil was always an advocate of keeping spares in the trunk.
I have noticed the same as what you mention. When driving rare finned tanks in USA, people are so friendly and will ALWAYS come up to you and say something positive, even if it's something goofy. In New Zealand, people also pretend you're invisible.... Except little kids. Little kids always notice our cartoon like cars.

Hi
I've been getting some nice comments lately when even driving our Fifth Avenue let alone the FL stuff ....me thinks people have had it with the new stuff and have become apathetic with it ...I mean when I get comments regarding a mid eighties Chrysler?? What does that tell you.....
Now of all things we have these wacko scientists coming up with self driving cars????? We have to protect what we got....I'm gonna go hug my FL cars now....

No matter what people think of the Big Three's styling in the 1980's, they do stand out today. They look different from each other and 180 degrees opposite from the cars of today. No worn down bars of soap back then. Also, the cars were painted in different colours - no choices restricted only to infinite shades of grey / silver.

My daily driver is a 1988 Plymouth Caravelle Salon (M body - sold as Gran Fury Salon in the US) painted a dark blue. The clear coat is all but gone - just a little bit left on the tip of the left front fender. But people smile and even wave when I drive by. And those that know what I am driving usually comment on their experiences with Diplomats and Caravelles - fondly. Most are amazed there is no rust on the car and it runs so quiet. If I don't mention gas mileage, they don't either.

What did I do with my FL car today? Let me tell you, I caused an accident - I didn't, my DeSoto did (I'm sure it wasn't me). Anyway, I was waiting to pull out of a parking lot onto the main drag of beautiful Branson, MO and a dude in a bright red Chevy pickup was rubber-necking looking at my DeSoto when BAM! - smack into the car in front of him. It wasn't bad because of very slow speed but I wonder if he still loves my DeSoto now? I don't even care.

I've been super busy lately, but today I took time out to add some fresh gas, fire up the Desoto, pull her out, and clean her up.


Realy nice Adventure. Like it. : :inlove:


Thanks ViperGuy and Joakim, this Desoto started life as a FireDome, was rescued from a Nevada junkyard, and built into an "Adventurer" using original parts . I bought the car this way.

Father's Day - 2016

I participated in a small but wonderful car show at the College of the Ozarks in Hollister, MO. It was put on by the college students and was free and they did an incredible job. Because of this free event, there were only three awards: Most Original, Peoples Choice, and Best of Show.

Of about 50 cars, there were only three MoPars - two '67 Dodge Chargers and my '59 DeSoto. The best thing turned out to be the owner of the Chargers works for Presley's Jubilee show place in Branson and is willing to work with me and the NDC in hosting a future national.

Getting back to the College of the Ozarks Father's Day show, unfortunately it was a participant and spectator voting event and the AACA of Kansas City showed up in force and through their scheme of "selected" voting, walked off with two of the three awards. Not illegal, and probably is done on a regular basis, but I just thought a club of this stature would have more class.

If you don't have time for that Desoto Dave, I'd love to take it off your hands and give it a good home....

Gave my wife the wheels and tires off of my 60 Belvedere so she could get her Survivor 64 Belvedere on the road after its 32 year sleep.

Just in time for fathers day almost as if i planned it this way .

Got the correct antennas installed on my car, replacing the "police car" style aftermarket antenna that was there.

Those wide whites look really good on there. Amazing what tires & wheels can do for a car... And the dual antennae always look great.

I took my wife out for a burger. It was chilly, and getting ready to rain, so she wore my jacket.

Neat jacket. I like it. How did you get it made?

I drove my family to church in the DeSoto today and had a nice conversation with an older lady about my car. I told her that I was impressed with how the car drove, and she replied, "Of course. We were really proud of our cars back then."

To get that jacket made, I took my design to the local embroidery shop, Initially Yours. They made a sample first, so I could approve it. I kept the sample and framed it.
