I can only tell you that I use Valvoline V1 high zinc racing oil 20-50 wt (not the synthetic version). I was told by a modern classics shop to only use high zinc oil.,For years I ran straight 30 wt, ordinary motor oil. For a long time I ran 15-40 wt. i think the most important piece of info is change the oil regularly, which I do every 2000 miles, about 3 times a year.

Not great, but you 'll get the idea from this video. My gas gauge quit, and despite asking 2 other people to remind me to get gas before the tour, we all forgot. As it turned out, we only used 5.5 gal driving from Potomac, plus we drove to a waterfront estate for a soire close by. Still, at the mid-point of the motoring tour, at the Oxford Boatyard, the tour organizers carried gas and a means to tow cars that couldn't make it. We didn't know how much gas we had, so they provided 3 gallons. It took 4 people to do and oversee that task. We actually had 10 gal left, but every passenger felt more relaxed after the addition.
We had a crab cake lunch at the Robert Morris Inn. Morris was a founding father, signer of all the important documents, and worked with Hamilton to create the finance system. He rolled over a couple of times last weekend

Having a police escort was fun. There were police cars and officers at every intersection, so we ran all the stops and signals. I’ll post a little video later.

2022 St Michaels Motoring Tour

Some elegant Packards accompanied the Duchess on a police-escorted tour of the waterfront estates of St Michael's, Easton and Oxford MD.

Many significant cars including this Cord and a 1939 Lea-France (only 3 made before the Nazi occupation).

NAPA is still telling me they cannot get them. Optimas website says Coming Soon if you try to put one in your cart. If you purchased an Optima red top 6v in the last 2 months, please post a link.

If anyone know the correct carpet for your car and has it, it will be SMS. Call them. Have your trim information ready. As Don wrote, maybe it isn’t pink, it just turned pink.

Possibly Bill Hirsch

Then rock it left and right to slide out. The bottom of the glass is notched to fit the bezel, so they should come out together, not separately. When you pull it out, you’ll see how the bezel back twists into the light socket holder.

Officially this is an Orphan Car show in the museum parking lot, but Packards predominated. Hosted by Virginia Packards with renegade Old Dominion Packards playing a key role. Perfect weather. Fun day.
