    "I also bought myself a 1966 Mercury Comet convertible."

    My plans are to buy a 1966 GTO. Blue convertable. Now we're talkin!!!

    I don't want to restore one. I just want to drive it and look at it. That was my dream car when I was a teenager. I swore to myself that one day I would buy one.
    Location: The Black Forest in Germany

    How to become a millionaire: Start out with 10 million and take up machining as a hobby!

        I got a selection of these threading tools via ebay. Not really a Christmas thing, just they turned up on Christmas eve:-

        A mixture of Whit and UN thread forms.
        I didn't get any holder with them, it won't be hard to devise one but if anyone can offer a pic of the real thing I'd like to see it. The internal tools will probably be the more useful to me.

        Most of them have had the cutting edge of the second 'tooth' ground back, as per this pic:-

          Anybody know a good classic car forum.

          It's for 1964 and earlier.. and they mean it. But there is a lot of good information.

          I'm working on a 66 merc convertible myself.. but it's a full size monterey

          My interest in machining is simply an extension of my car interest
