Havenít heard it in years but did hear it probably ten times as a lad

Years ago there was a guy in Hemmings, Alex Takasian (sp?) he would advertise all these parts from cars he was obviously taking apart to sell in bits

I bought a trunk lid and a front fender. We are talking easily 30 years ago so you can imagine how pissed I was to remember his name to this day

The items arrived in deplorable/unusuable condition. Packing couldn't be less secure. I can't imagine for the life of me how they could be so damaged. I reported it (was so obvious anyway) to the driver and a refund was give. TO ALEX

I finally found out his father worked at a law firm and called there. I got my refund.

I feel for you. I was more angry that original decades old rust free parts were destroyed by sheer laziness. I hope you get sorted

I have always wondered what happens with a salvage title car when it is brought to a no title state.  Many states don't issue titles to older cars NY being one.  It gets a transferable registration.  Does the brand follow?

Ah. Thatís why so many cars have GA titles. Clean title state. Wipes the Brands

It is quite amazing how we are all being led down this garden path

The problems I have with even basic business interactions these days (read: banks) does not bode well for the future when there will be even fewer people to speak with (after an hour on hold) who can sort out the issues caused by their systems

Thank you Bob. Advice from you is as good as it gets

When I said screws: you donít want to see where they put them :-(

I will wet my new panels shortly :-)

Endemic in the darn things. I have 3 sets of brand new 65/66 deluxe panels in stock, two still in the plastic and in the box that are warped. One other set new but shop worn...same thing. I tried putting them on a rack with weight opposing the bend in the heat. It came out but came right back. Maybe thats why the vast majority of them on cars (non shelbys that I deal with) have a few screws holding them on. A friend just installed brand new panels on a build. He used screws. Another friend with an E car, Screws in his door panels. How the suppliers can't sort this issue out is beyond me.

I was outside that dealership about a month ago. Neat looking place

Maybe Bill Collins of Bill Collins collector cars?

You folks are amazing

I canít believe how tough this is to research when you donít have baseline knowledge in a subject. In this case big block toploaders

Okay. So now I know my threaded hole location on mine is fine for a big block application as it uses an adapter plate to relocate the shifter.

One last question. Is my trans to cross member mounting boss correct for a big block?  I.E. the wider ďfootĒ rather than the smaller oval I am used to?

Thank you folks.

Sorry. I should have said shifter assembly.

Iím this instance I was noticing the
Threaded holes in this tail shaft are at the midpoint of the
Tailshaft rather then the end where I am used to seeing them.
