No problems for me either, and the roads here are like a minefield of potholes. It is tight getting them in the rear fenders as mentioned, but deflating and wrestling worked for me. I went with budget black wall tires (radial champiro or something) off Amazon and got a deal where a Pep boys installed them on the rims (brought to them off the car). Other than some questions about the tubes on the wheels, they had no issue getting the radials on and holding air and they havenít leaked. Been driving in all conditions for 7 months now.

Hello, quick check mid-project! I got this thermostat kit from one of the big two. Why am I remembering a post that said itís supposed to be a paper gasket? Is this incorrect?

I've taken a few drives around carefully avoiding people, posted mainly on the 22-23rd FB page also. One to Plum Island, took another two out to Parker's because I dropped off/picked up for a seat belt installation.

Also I'm in to work when needed to be and Penny's my daily, so she's around town those days as well, rain, snow, sun. Even in difficult times, she brings a smile to most, present company included.

Well he sure has a lot of friends there, and what looks like a 22nd series peeking out from under a cover.

Just curious about the cause behind the high-speed turnpike driving exception for my own knowledge, and if this means one might want to consider something different for the tank if one was planning a longer trip with more highway miles?

Re:leaded additives/fuel, this is still the #1 thing (in my experience) that men aged 50-70 ask me specifically about. Usually after making some comment about their opinion on the styling and/or putting a V8 and disc brakes in. My replies about the originality and it being fine on pump gas after the rubber/carb rebuild baffles every time! The ladies and younger or older folks always love the car as is.

Thanks!

I'm going to go for it, though it might take some time to get it pending how he wants to manage the actual sale vs outbreak risk. I'll report back about which variety it turned out to be!

Hello,

Can someone help me identify if this is an actual cormorant or a knock-off? To me, it looks like the later swept back wing versions rather than the one I need for my 49, but I'm not an expert on these. I'll take it if it's a legit Packard piece and not an aftermarket swan even if just to swap at a later time with someone who needs one. It's bunched with other obviously knock off pieces which is why I'm being careful.

Thanks!
