 We got a really nice email from one of our Classified ad sellers today about the sale of his car and we wanted to pass it along..

ad # 39589

It is with joy that I ask you to place my ad, #39589 1933 Ford in the sold area of the site. And I offer suggestions for others selling cars there. These thoughts come from the purchaser, as well as my experience. When I inquired after negotiations started why he chose my car out of the many listed he told me the description, as well as the many photos. So if I could offer suggestions to others it would be, purchase a featured ad with unlimited words for description, and post many photos. Sure it cost more up front but it paid off.

Also, and most importantly do not blow off potential purchasers from overseas. I like many others was leery of such contacts thinking yea right, scam! Well I learned my lesson. The man lives in France. Transaction went very smooth. Many emails, and made a video for him. He called me several times as well. While still being skeptical, I opened a small checking account at a bank other than my normal bank to wire funds. He did send the funds via wire transfer for full amount in USD. I went to that bank and got cashiers check payable to me and deposited in my regular bank. No chance of fraud. The man was genuinely professional, and transaction was pleasant. So do not blow off the Europeans, they like street rods as well.      Tom Sellers

Note:     from Hotrodhotline ...  While most of the sales on our site go to the US or Canada.... many go to Australia and New Zealand as well.  And this week we had two sales reported going to Europe .. One to England and one to France... so it looks like activity from Europe has picked up here on Hotrodhotline.  

New Article from the Hot Rod M.D.
 In recent Hot Rod MD articles I fabricated a bracket to mount a deck lid latch (Installing a Trunk Latch) and showed how to make a low-buck prop rod (Fabricating a Deck Lid Prop Rod) to hold the deck lid open.  Mechanisms to operate the latch were covered briefly in the deck lid latch article but it didn’t show how to install a release.  Installation of a solenoid to unlatch it is covered well in the instructions that come with most solenoid kits.  However, if you opt for a simpler release like a pull-cable you will have to fabricate much of it yourself...
