Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:

    http://donclink.com/deuce_75_1/images/dscn2950.jpg

    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

Al, regarding the width of the column when replying . . . thanks for the info! I'm glad this fix is working for people who see it! On my computer I can't seem to drag the window. It is fixed, but comes out "wide" when I reply.
NOTE: Let's please try to keep comments in this discussion to the "1932 Ford Book." Thanks so much! Margaret

All:

Thank You! I've enjoyed the discussion, and I believe some of the answers merit being pasted in
my new 38-39 Book when it arrives. I agree that Gary leaves some things to our interpretation.
What I respect is that he doesn't re-write history or speculate. I also want to specifically
thank Alan for giving me more column width to ramble in by bringing the little "dart" in the
lower right hand corner to my attention. Now I just need to find an appropriate aluminum
manifold. Thanks Again!

Margaret, I use a PowerMac, OS X 10.4.11. I asked the same question on the Welcome thread, and John replied that he'd ask
the webmaster.

Alan

P.S. ~ I just now figured it out! The window we type in is expandable both up and down and left to right. Drag the bottom of the window to
the right and it should print out correctly.

Kal, I'll be checking with the webmaster on this one. Don't know what this would be. If you scroll up in this topic, you'll see two others are printing out the same!!?? Margaret

To Rumblegutz. Sorry you are having problems ordering the '32 Ford Book Dan. I hear you have spoken to Dave Rasmussen on the phone and got your order through. You should not be having problems with the OnLine Store. We are following up with the Webmaster to investigate. Perhaps you hit an incorrect key. We are all volunteers,and we try to do our best. By the way, we take VISA and MasterCard through the online store. You must have been looking at the ad in the V-8 Times when you stated we only take money order or check. Hope you get your book by Christmas!
Margaret Connelly, Website Admin.

I just signed up for this site last night and was able to order the book too. I have looked at a friend's copy and can't wait until mine arrives.

Had no trouble ordering on line

I’d like to buy the book and have been trying but get an error message that says the webmaster has been notified and a correction will be made soon, try again. Several attempts have only resulted in frustration. Called the Minnesota number only to be referred to Dave Rasmussen. Called Dave only to reach an answering machine. Looking around the web site it looks like Dave only takes checks and money orders. So I have to hope the web site takes plastic and what ever the problem is they sort it out soon.

Getting frustrating as Christmas is coming and time is looking short.

I, too, bought the book, have been corresponding with Dave Rehor for many years and also met him at Hershey several years ago. He has been extremely helpful to me with my '32 and the great book just tops it all off.

Ronald,

I too stopped by Roy's tent on Friday. I said hi to Dave and had a few
questions. Both Dave and Roy have been a big help in the restoration
of my wagon. Dave and Roy were also gracious enough to spend some
(a lot) of time ay the Eastern meet answering my questions. I have to
get Dave's book so he can have some peace.

Scott

PS Thanks Ron with your input on the fuel and exhaust systems. I wish
we could have met at Hershey.
