KK1896 in Chicago
« on: November 23, 2019, 06:38:23 pm »
First and Foremost, this is one of the most beautiful cars I've ever seen in my life. Simply superb. I'd like to congratulate the owner on winning the Authenticity Award from the MCA this weekend. Check out this youtube video that showcases the car.

After reading some comments on the Video, I have a question for you B9 experts in regards to this car. Even though someone only shows a car and NEVER drives it, is it smart to allow an engine to remain dry? No oil. No Coolant. No gasoline. Wouldn't this wreck havoc on the internals? Wouldn't this ultimately hurt the value of the car?

Absolutely stunning !!
A work of art.
Or perhaps described as the best Car Porn ever.  You don't touch it , but you can look at it but you definitely cannot drive it .

Just to be clear.
I love what the owner of KK1896 has done to his car. It is finished the way he wanted it.
In retrospect, perhaps I should have done the same thing to KK1824. But at the end of the day we both did it the way we wanted it.
As Frank Sinatra sang " I did it my way"
A really big plus for KK1896 is it will never leak oil from those damn "O" rings

Nice piece.
Watched it on “mute” while at work.
Is the car “dry?”

Don’t believe in dry engines.

I can understand the dry engine part. With that level of restoration each time the engine goes through a heat cycle the paint shades change a little. After years of short runs from car trailer to show field or building the engine finishes weather each time. That 7 blade fan kicks up a dust storm also. The less maintenance the better. Its a static display and he has other cars he can pound on.

 Cars not running at Classification Inspection lose one (1) point mandatory. Thoroughbred class cars that start will receive one bonus point. There is no deduction for Thoroughbred cars that do not start.

  The motor, trans, rear axle are properly lubricated to factory specs. Gas and antifreeze serve no useful purpose if car is not driven. The car has silicone base DOT 5 brake fluid. KK1896 received the MCACN Pinnacle Div.1 Gold at this show. The MCA authenticity award was won at the MCA Grand National in Ashville N.C. 9 years ago. Add a little race gas and you could burn the tits off the NOS Polyglas if desired. This should answer your concerns.
