While I defer to the restoration specialists in our group, this seems like a good candidate. Given time (and money)we could see a nice early 50's save.

Wait, if you tape a duck to a carp, does that make it a flying fish?

Ed, I do the best I can to figure you out most times, but this has me beat.

Now in Ed's defense, "Duck Tape" is a legitimate brand of "duct tape".

no but it does help them fly united..

lets try this again. while I'm still alert. the least you would think a person would do is cover the carburetor even if it was only with duct tape. all that junk filling the engine room and no air cleaner on it spills bad news to me. water get into the intake and it tends to freeze and brake the side out.. I do have a spare one here though.

tell me why is it the only thing duct tape won't stick to is ducts?

Red Green would be proud !

I can't understand why so many cars have the air cleaner removed and left unattended for years with it open like that !

Duct tape is used for more things than ducts these days anyways.
Wallets is a big one. Ladies dresses even !

Now there are 50 different colors and many different patterns too !
