A Message from Our President


What a wonderful time we live in!  I remember when I first started working on cars and motorcycles.  Finding information about them was limited to parts and service manuals the dealer would let me have plus Chilton's at the library.

Now we have the Internet and in less than a minute I can access online service manuals plus forums where there are thousands of owners of the same car I have.

Car related news and entertainment is also widely available.  Here are some of the forums I use:, an auction/trading site for uncommon vehicles;, cars news and ancedotes;, not about cars but about where we keep them and work on them;, near and dear to my heart!;, another important one;, with morning and afternoon news videos;, everything GM. I'm sure you have your favorites too!  If you have a useful or fun webpage you visit, share it with the rest of us, send an email to '' and let us know about it.

Tech Tip


I was recently researching on the subject of antifreeze/coolant to determine the best to use in my new radiator on my 36 Ford. I was quite shocked to learn that the modern cars use an entirely different formula, and you should never use the new stuff in your antique car. The delineating factor is if you have a brass copper solder radiator you must use the old formulas. The new stuff will literally eat the solder from the radiator as well as pit your cast iron block. I checked with two antifreeze companies Prestone and Peak and received the exact same information from their technical people . All modern formulations are for aluminum radiators ,do not use them. Prestone does have an intermediary formula in the yellow jug than can be used if the car is driven at least once a month. It has a service live five years. But if you’re like most people and it sets all winter they don’t recommend it. Both companies recommend what is called prime conventional green, it is a very old formula and the only negative about it is high toxicity and two year service life . I couldn’t find the prestone brand at any of the stores, but the Peak brand is readily available. Peak bottles it for NAPA , part number RTU1GAL. that’s the pre mixed,ready to use. So check your car and see if it is green, if it’s not you probably should change it. As a sidenote Bob Burkhalter can tell you how to determine when you’re antifreeze is going bad (it becomes acidic). Maybe we could get him to post that information on this site for you?Happy motoring Jeff Findlay
