Senior cars had resonators in '54 and pretty sure also in '53.

Remember back in leaded fuel days exhausts needed replacing ever two years or so depending on usage. Cheap used cars did not get resonators replaced.

Gee, I hope you aren't taking any unnecessary risks with these activities. Where I am it's wall to wall death. The two for profit hospitals are shutting down, the doctors and nurses are getting sick, the grocery workers are getting sick, and I haven't been out the front door since Sunday when I went for a 30 mile drive to charge the battery in my car.

If my employer saw me posting pictures like that they wouldn't let me back in the building. One infected person would cost the place millions of dollars.

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!

Interesting about the resonator! I had no idea and it makes me wonder if any of the replacement systems have it. I had two 1953s and still own two 1954s and they apparently all had it eliminated.

Surprising what one finds on Youtube, maybe a couple years ago but a tour of the outside of the Speedwell Garage.

A grey and drizzly Sunday afternoon and too antsy to continue in William Manchester's EXCELLENT biography of Churchill, I decided to embroil myself in a long procrastinated tail section for Roadster II. This is also made from the rear clip of a contour car as was Roadster I--but this time not as a boattail. So I narrowed a spare trunk lid by 28 inches and fitted it up to two rear quarters. The assembly is now just as wide as the rear portion of a contour frame. I have made some sketches of the finished car and this will help me work out other proportions more accurately.

Want to note one of the most important days in the most important years of our fore bearers with a period tribute. Hope to cruise around with this some till the rains start. Sorry, I don't have a prewar Packard to decorate!
