Bright Tail lights

Brighter Tail Lights When I was fixing up Colleen’s ‘56 Chevy, one of the things I wanted to do was make the stop/tail lights brighter. First, I washed the lens and cut out reflective rings for the housing. I used a 3m diamond grade sign reflective sheet scrap which really helped. (This is available at Highway Sign Shops). Second, I ordered #1157 “Brite Light” from one of the speed shops. These ‘babies’ are bright! (50/8 watt). Unfortunately, when all the lights were on and you hit the brakes, the thermo-breaker…

Oildale – The Movie

Saturday Night at the Movies – January 18: “OILDALE” From Mike H.: We had somewhere between 350 and 400 people. Ray Yedding and team pushed out about 300 bags of popcorn. Once again, we are so appreciative of the Roamin Angels members who joined us. I’ve been surprised once again in the last two weeks by members who also turn out to be Vets. You stand back and look at it and it’s logical. Hard workers, dedicated, honest, American. From Diane B.: What a wonderful movie! And to think that it…

A Real Steal

While Jim R. didn’t physically steal his 1958 Buick Special, he did get it as the result of a crime. The second owner, who had bought it in  1959, had been in prison for a long stretch when his mother got tired of storing it in her garage and had made him sell it in 1989.  Jim saw the ad and went to see it. It had a 364 CID “nailhead” V-8 engine with a two-barrel carb and a Dynaflow auto trans. For options it had power steering and brakes,…

Roamin’ Angels History

Do You Know Your Roamin’ Angels History? Roamin Angels began in the 1960s. Like so many teenagers in the early ’60s, the future Roamin’ Angels were into hopping up their cars and drag-racing in the Grass Valley area. Long before Hollywood came up with the phrase, they felt “the need, the need for speed.” The stories of near misses with death in souped-up cars could make a book. Spare time was spent changing the engines, transmissions or rear ends of the teenagers’ cars to eke out a few more mph…

Lift That Engine

Lift That Engine…Have you ever wondered? A point pondered and drawn by Lanny N., 2007 Some of us occasionally have the need to lift an engine, possibly with the transmission attached. How often have do we use a lifting plate that attaches to the intake manifold by four 5/16th bolts? How about if that manifold is made of aluminum? Have you ever thought about just how much weight is riding on those four little bolts screwed into aluminum. I know I think about it every time I do it.  Well,…
