July 15, 2010 12:00 AM
Jay answers the questions you asked! Ever wonder whether you have to warm up a modern car before putting it in drive? Need to know more about vapor locking? Or maybe you're interested in future classics. Jay and Bernard answer your questions right here.
Amy Franco asks:
I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico and I'm having trouble with my 1964 Corvair vapor locking. I've been told the accepted fix for this is to install an electric fuel pump. Is this the best fix? Could you also give me a tutorial on vapor locking, where it occurs, and the quickest way to get the vehicle going again?
It is said that you do not need to let modern cars warm up before putting them in drive. Why is that?
Jay, from your experience what car or tuck has the best-matched engine, clutch and transmission?
Do you ever sell any of the vehicles in your collection? Maybe because you found a better version, or because the vehicle no longer meets the needs of your collection?
Sam Osborne asks:
I'm a typical teenager except that I just love old cars. I would like to know your opinion on what's going to be a good future classic?
Will any of your cars be at SEMA in Las Vegas this year?
