I started preparing my '59 Firesweep for the drive to Hutchinson to attend the National DeSoto Convention in July.  It'll be a 6 hour drive so I figure a good lube and inspection to all the joints, etc. should be done, a tire rotation, and an oil change.  For local cruising it's been fine but I don't think it will hurt to give it a once over for a distant run.  Cosmetically it's as good as it's going to get - might need a cleanup in Hutchinson though - I'll probably murder a few bugs along the way.

Hope to see many of you in Hutchinson!

I tried to put the prop shaft back in my 48 DeSoto business coupe, but I am missing the required C-clamps that the bolts and studs go through.  Unfortunately, C-clamps are not included in the U-joint rebuild kits.  Does anyone know where I can get the C-clamps?  Marc Capralis 951-331-1941  marcapra@msn.com
