    Thanks Larry. The main thing we wrestle with is when is the right time to make that call in regards to putting them to rest. If the animal's quality of life is such that it is just an existence to merely keep it alive because sentimental value, or because the decision is just too hard to make, it may not be fair to the pet. It almost sounds like the 17 year old's quality of life is approaching (or past) that point maybe? Certainly if they're in pain, it's the correct call, no matter how difficult it may seem. That's where I found myself the other night. As hard as it was, & certainly
  3. My wife Glendia is going to have to do something with my late in-laws dog. She is 17 yrs old and we have had her for 11 years now. I did not want them, she had sister who died 5 yrs ago, because whenever we go to any of our Eastern meets we have to board her and she is now peeing in the floor almost daily, cannot hear, is almost blind and has a very hard time getting up after sleeping all night. If my father in-law had lived longer the dog would have been dead a long time ago. He gave the dogs each a half can of dog food every morning, dry food in another bowl all day, treats all day long and
  4. I can't speak for the 295s but here is a pic of my 70 with 15x8, 4.5b.s. with 275/60r15's-28" and 15x6 with 215/70r15's- 26.8" hope this helps a little. I would also recommend a 5" b.s. especially if you go with the 295.
  5. I remember having new vents in my new dash but could not remember who got the new replacements for my old dash
  6. I pointed out all of these items (except the washer hoses) to the club member a that was there as he was looking at it. rob
  7. Glad to see it legally on the road again. She’s(barnfind) got to be happy. 👍👍👍
  8. Thanks. Every month I pay off the credit card and that tells me I’m winning the battle. But I know it will at go another month and another and another and...
  9. Of corse the first stop is for gas lol, it only got up to about 15 here today and got about 6 inches of new snow last night, about a foot a few miles north of us. I had the garage door open to get snowblower out
  10. LS5 was the rub your tires had on the outside at the seam for the quarter panel and trim? Ive got a 70 im doing a gear change, as well as 15x8s (4.75 or 5 inch backspacing) and i cant decide on 295/60/15s or 275/60/15s. It has 255/70/15s on now and i have what seems like an inch to the quarter panel seem and 2 inches to the frame rail with 15x7s 3.75 backspacing.
  11. Hello all! Well after alot of back n forth with the NY DMV I finally got "Barn Find" on the road. Her first "legal" trip was for a nice fresh tank of super! Didn't keep her out long, found out the heat/blowers were not working and it was cold out to say the least. Lol Put her back in the garage and did some checking. Found the 4 seasons relay, the one on top of the a/c box near the vacuum pod no good. Jumped it out and all works. Have a new one on its way. And yes, I do have a few of these "in stock" but for 15 bucks, new it is. Lol
  12. Note that the squirter hoses only go through the firewall for 1970. They do not go through the firewall in 71/72 as the nozzle is mounted in a different location on the hood. Most of those other items are easily changed for not a lot of money. As far as if it is a real SS is the biggest issue for sure. Has some components that certainly suggest it could be an SS (rear bumper, SS rear trim, shock protectors, dash knob with symbol). I have not seen anything that suggests it is not an SS so it would need more investigating for me to buy it.
  13. We’ve all seen some cars get a lot of money. Chevelles, Corvettes, Mustangs, Hemis... but these cars usually have every tiny detail perfect. While I’m glad to finally see our car getting some decent sell values like this car did, it certainly has a lot of details wrong. Is this even a real SS? As ALL the lift components are missing except the shock shields and no engine block numbers provided, I’m highly suspicious. Aside what Rob said, it has a glass fuel filter, master cylinder without bleeders, chrome valve covers, HEI distributor, blue plug wires, squirter hoses not poked th

  15. These projects are an accumulation of small victories. Looks like you're winning! Good job!
  16. One of our members from Ohio flew down there to bid on that car. While he was inspecting it he was talking to me on the phone and with help from Thomas F, I was pointing some things to him based upon the pictures.... advertised as remote mirror but even though the remote lever on the driver interior panel the exterior mirror is not remote. Burlwood insert on the console is the wrong pattern. Wrong air cleaner, wrong exhaust tips. Owner admits it is not a factory manual trany. He could not verify engine number matches. None of the auto level system parts were there but it did have the shoc
  17. That is now 3 first gens that have sold for over $80k at auction in less than a year.
  18. Pretty Darn Rare 71 SS! It's got a 4 speed manual in it. Doug
  19. Check your heater core for leaks. Not sure if with A/C is easy or hard but worth checking IMO.

    SS454 Info Page

    I spent some time on the page again today and added a few photos.
  22. Started gauge upgrade,lots of broken tabs on gauge bucket. Think somebody else has been in it. Different bolts around it. I now have the dash out of car, going to clean, change out A/C vents (leghome) . Anyone know where I can find a gauge bucket in good condition? also kick panels. I should have removed them before dropping dash. Now scratched. Learning curve I guess.

    I’ll look into adding more photos. Maybe 1970 and a 1971 full engine bay photos. Yes that’s my copper 1971 SS.
