    image.jpeg I was scrapping today and saved this dial. Why you ask ! Because it goes to eleven when you need just one more!

    My 100 watt Marshall tube stack went to 10 once when the volume pot shorted out, I'm pretty sure it almost killed me, can't imagine 11.:eek::cool:

    I bought a small “bedroom” amp for my guitar a couple of years ago from monoprice.com, and the volume knob actually went to 11.

    That switch will go well with my 8.5 rpm tach. When I need a extra .500 image.jpeg

    And what kind of a car is that tach in? I don't recognize that dash...

    Here is a 61 in a convertible. They sure have the unique Vigil Exner look and a lot of trim:

    A few years back, I saw a 61 station wagon in a bone yard. I have not seen another since the 60s.

    Herb McCandless and one of his sons restored a 61 with a modern engine. Restored it looked great. For sure, most people do not like their looks.

    Ok, thanks for that; - that's the one thing that is so neat about those late 50s-early 60s Chrysler products; they're so damn ugly that they're beautiful.

    They have to grow on you kind of like a fungus—a little at a time.

    Have you ever seen one of those with a 361 or a 383 and sonoramic long rams? I have seen that set up on a Dodge Phoenix. As I recall you could never order a 61 Plymouth with a 413.

    The black fury ruff one above is a 383 originally. It had a max wedge motor in it when I found it. It has power swivel buckets ,PW and hurst 3spd Manuel shifter,HIFI record player. The 413 option was listed in the brochere only as a dealer install. You had to be somebody to get one. Richard Petty could get one,Ramchargers race team could get one.As far as I know there no know plymouths and 2 dodges made with 413. Since I don't have the original motor I'm putting a 61 413 in it. I have located most of the Xram parts
    The Xram inner fenders had these bolt on cut outs where you removed the wheel and then the cut outs to change the spark plugs.
