    What was the Best Era?

    Good for us. Our parents thought the 50's were the best. The 30's and 40's were hot and cold depending on whether it was war time or not.

    New speedo cable. Lube needed? New question, SEE POST 14.

    I worked at a GM dealer for a decade and a half. Their preferred speedo cable lube was white lithium. I used powdered graphite but the core was new and dry.

    66 window washer reservoir

    From what I saw, 66 B body is it's own part number. The new white ones are too new looking the yellowish ones look like they have some age to them (like they are original to the car) Too bad you can't find a color picture of a original to know what the color was .
