For those of you who do not know much about 1949 Nash Ambassadors, a few pics so you know what Ross is driving through the countryside. As I recall, it is a two door with the rear seat option. Ross, feel free to correct me..

For those like me who do not know what Micarta is:
Micarta industrial laminates are established as the premium phenolic thermoset materials in the industry. Micarta Phenolic sheet is a hard, dense material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of paper or glass cloth impregnated with synthetic resin. These layers of laminations are usually of cellulose paper, cotton fabrics, synthetic yarn fabrics, glass fabrics or unwoven fabrics. When heat and pressure are applied to the layers, a chemical reaction (polymerization) transforms the layers into a high-pressure thermosetting industrial laminated plastic.

I guess it was used because of resistance to heat?

Hub cap attached but spins on wheel when driving.

The hubcaps on the 2106 are very sturdy and heavy. My right front hubcap is firmly attached but, I can rotate it with my hand when the car is at rest. It squeaks when the car is underway.
What is the best way to fix this? I thought about adjusting the "fingers" that hold it on but remember when the hubcap when spinning off into the forest and I saw $400 of hoardered gold evaporating into thin air! I did recover it but is has a greater share of "patina" now.

Any suggestions?

Arn't we just a little crazy? We have these beautiful rolling works of art and we go 12 miles "without incident" and we are elated!

Do we need intervention??

This year for the first time I have got my car to a reliable state where I can actually go on a hundred mile trip without fear. The car made it clear what it needed to be a reliable companion, and I listened!
It has been a long road! Thank you Ross and Howard, and the recommissioning angel, John!!!!

Ross's garage is in a very rural place. It is so pastoral,he can do his bathing in a squeaky clean river down the street!

Love the hand made hood but in my opinion, the hood ornament on the roadster is your finest piece of small art. You should post a pic for your fans with and without the high beam on and give a brief description of how you came up with the design.

You sound rested after your trip to Africa! Didn't you have anything to do???? 😂
