Re: Hello

you would be smokey too if someone fired you up after resting 55 or so years, give the car a break :)

I will be done with the Mini soon, so anytime you want to come help with my LM will be fine with me.

Re: 1952 Singer 4AD after 5 1/2 years!

I have towed cars cross country on open trailers which would be less expensive to rent and you may have something that can haul that. For me the only scary part of the open trailer is night time when i am sound asleep in the hotel and the car is out there in the parking on the trailer, but I have ne...

Re: 4AD gearbox sticking to first gear

I have never seen a solution to this problem. My 4AD had the same issue and I thought I was the only with it, didn't know others had it. I drove it that way for 30 years, I just had to remember to always get out of first quickly. One time when I didn't get out of first in time, I had to drive home a...

Re: Vendor/Service Provider Contact List

we had something similar on the old version of the website 10+ years ago, but it got badly out of date and I didn't move it when the site was updated. I have no problem with something like that but keeping it up to date is the issue. Best example is the home page, its 2 years out of date but I have ...

Re: Hello

Had to look up where Aix les Bains - Savoie is...Darn, a bit out of the way it might be too much of a detour as I drive from Lyon to Cannes.

brakes are over-rated, there is always a tree stump somewhere to slow you down

Re: spammers

again, we are really getting hit by spammers. I just deleted 546 forum membership requests for the month of January. I found a few people that tried to register that I missed (sorry, I missed your request in a timely manner, but you are now registered). The other 540ish, that I deleted were I think ...

When you get some spare time, my Le Mans is waiting in the garage. You have done a great job in record time.

Re: SAVE A SINGER!

I agree, it looks like a easy project. I actually considered it for a brief second, but with 2 pre-wars waiting patiently and my silly promise to my wife that the Mini would be the last car I work on until after the Le Mans is finished, I had to stop thinking it. I do think this car is easily worth ...

Re: Side mirrors

There are no great detailed pictures on the site that I can find, but pictures in the Singer Gallery ( which needs MANY more pictures by the way, hint, hint ) 6, 10, 12, 13, 27 show original side mirrors. Picture 27 is the most detailed, remember that you can click on the pictures to increase their ...

Re: Hello

Awesome, pretty soon you will have to do the same with my car here in Calif.
Warning we have lots of body (wood) work to do first :)

I am not going to be working on my car for a while...Paris is calling me for the holidays and I always answer when Paris calls.
