I remember reading about those economy runs and some of the tricks the drivers used. Tires pumped up to be rock hard, accelerator pumps removed from the carb and coast (engine off) down to about 5 MPH then slowly speed up to about 35 and then coast again plus a few other things that I have forgotten

What I do is to put one jumper cable directly to the starter bypassing the solenoid turn on the key and then ground the other cable to ground-- you get a spark but that way you are only putting 12 V through the starter and not to the rest of the car.

I have a sealed beam headlight conversion kit for sale. Fits 37 jr. Chrome ring is perfect. I thought I could adapt it to my 38 but no go. $200 and it's yours.

I thought that Marvel mystery oil was the standard "go to" for stuck pistons. I have heard of running diesel in the crank case to clean out the innards.

I'm sure it's been covered before. I did a search but couldn't find anything. I'm trying to brighten up the headlights on my 38 coupe while retaining the original look. I have some 6V LED bulbs but I would have to cut up my reflectors to make them fit. Anyone have any ideas.

Rhode Island by law doesn't issue a title for a car over 10 years old. Other states will accept a certified copy of a registration and a copy of the no title law. Then of course if you know somebody from NH they can register an old car on a bill of sale and for a $100 more get a title
