  1. Check out The Right Stuff Detailing (getdiscbrakes.com) or contact Leo Konik who is a distributor for The Right Stuff.
  2. Nice to hear you back, Cort. Hope this year treats you a little better. To steal a line from Steve Earle's "Someday", "some day I'm gonna put her on the interstate & never look back".
  3. Nice job, Jack!! It's always nice to be surprised when you least expect it. You really have an oustanding ride.
  4. I am the 2nd owner for my '72 which was sold new at Jack Maxton Chevrolet in Worthington, Ohio (Columbus). Maxton is rated by Ward's Magazine (trade rag) as #71 of the top 500 in the country. Not really a plug for the dealer, but they even sell classic cars on the lot. Also, the dealership got into the restoration business a little over a year ago. I buy all my Chevys from there and have worked with the same salesman for a number of years. I have owned mine '72 since 1991 which was the first year Maxton Chevrolet started doing a monthly car show. The event is for Chevy powered Chevys o
  5. Rob, I've been off the board for a few days and just now seeing this post. I completely understand & support your decision. After reading all the other posts from everyone, mine would be a repeat. Thanks for all your enduring & loyal service to this club. You carried the position with a passion. But, one must take care of their person. I was really disappointed I had to miss the co-joined meet a few yrs ago in Greensburg due to my back going out just a couple of days before the meet. I did some life changes due to my back situation. After meeting you in Elyria at an NMCOA Conven
  6. I have not been on the boards for a few days and really concerned to see this thread. We pray for Rob's mend back to health and support for Pat and family.
  7. Kroil and a 12 pt socket should do the deed. After the soaking, use ever so gently increasing pressure with the 12 pt socket. Kroil is about the best stuff I have used. Good luck.
  8. dbreese is right, Paint Code #43 for 1972 was Gulf Green. '71 was close, but with a little more gold in it.
  9. Uh, Rob, are you at it again with an early April Fool's joke on this one. You did good on this one, Rob!! Oh, wait a sec, this person is actually serious. Sorry, I was going to give Rob credit for a good prank.
  10. I bought a pair GM pair from Paddock (when they were still in business) to replace the orginals after the re-paint. Like Jared said, tough fit to say the least. I had to "open" them up in places just to get them on. Reeaaally tight fit. Used rubber mallet, even protected with tape and still put a little knick in the paint on both sides. I should have let my paint guy do it, but I thought I could. Good luck!!
  11. My original still works, but I never use it. All it does is just blow air around. I think it must have been a "must have" option that served no practical function. It just blows cold air on low or high speed. Go figure.....
  12. Have not been on for a couple of days, and to read this is sad. I met Ronnie at Norwalk, and what a peach of a guy. My prayer is with him and his family.
  13. Cort, same back to you. Good to see you, but weekend, once again too short. Besides cars, I would have really liked to talk more of music with you. I know you have a wealth of tunes info.
  14. Great meeting you also Bob. Hope your trip home was good. Ours was really HOT w/o air. Whenever I come up that way for a show, I'll give you a shout.
  15. Was good to see fellow FGMCC members again this past weekend and also meet a couple of members for the first time. Sorry if I miss anyone, chime in to correct me. Class winners are as follows: 70-72 Mike Boyte '72 Summerfiled, NC Tim Funk '72 Westerville, OH Gold Class Jim Garrett '72 Pickerington, OH Peoples Choice Mark Patrone '70 McDonald, OH Next year's Nationals will be 6/24-6/26 in York, PA.
