Thumbs up Re: SoCal checkin' in

That looks like a nice one to refurbish and drive .

Those old Delco R-6AC compressors suck up a fair goodly bit of HP but , driving in The Mojave Desert with 62* F inside is always nice and easy to do with that setup .

The B.O.P. V-ates are much stronger than Chevy SBC's .

Re: SoCal checkin' in

I have a few pieces to take out of my doors but the doors themselves (empty shells and stripped glass) are free if anyone wants them.

The bottoms are rusted out so they need some love but I really don't want to put these in the dumpster.

Re: SoCal checkin' in

Hi guys,


I'm new here to the forums from So. Cal. Here's a pic of my '78 C10. I'm hoping to gain a lot of knowledge here and to learn a great deal on how to fix it up and make it a good reliable truck. I never learned nor was taught how to fix up cars so I really hope to get that jump started quickly. (See what I did there) Ha ha! So far from lurking everybody seem so cool and friendly so I'm excited to join the forum!

Post Re: SoCal checkin' in

Dangit ! .

Here you alls finally have a Meet & Greet right near me in La Crescenta and I'm 3,000 miles away =8-^ .

I hope it was fun , those guys meet there every weekend and are not always interested in old trucks .

InitialBoss , WELCOME ! that's a nice looking stepper you have there , first things first : it needs a HOT oil & filter change then it needs greasing , lots and lots of Zerk fittings under there to shoot full of grease , the wheels must be off the ground for proper greasing .

Post Re : Saturday Fun

I still don't have a new windshield ~ they called me and cancelled , apparently they refuse to work on " old cars " even though it's the same job as any Mercedes.....(they have rubber grommets too) .

In any case , I have to take SWMBO to Nevada early to - morrow morning .

The folks there never said anything , they just turned their noses up at my old '49 3100 that IMO looked pretty good .

Many of the Road Rallies I go on , use that parking lot as a jump off place becuase it's free and clean , bathrooms , coffee and even brekkie if you want it , all right there and a gas station there too .

Have a great time , please take and post some pictures .

-Nate

It was fun while it lasted But time for something alil newer so I can get to where I am going in life and when I am settled in somewhat I can buy another 60-66 c10. Thanks fellas for your hospitality.

Re: SoCal checkin' in

You can always spot the Japanese and the Swedes at almost every Pomona swap meet. They pay cash with a clean title ready to sign over. I've had a few ""very" attractive offers on my C10 and my 65 Vette.

Yes, they pay good real good money (I know), But, unfortunately once there gone they are not coming back, in a dozen years or so we might have to go overseas to see an american classic truck/car show.
