Last night I found myself in a sort of radiator repair men's convention! My Tagalog is about as good as their English, so I can't explain this, but they were all in agreement that if you want a conventional radiator that will last a lifetime, go with copper. The aluminum ones are very hard to repair when they get dinged and (to use the one English word they all knew) "disposable".
Anyone feel the same way?

I would not have an aluminum radiator on a daily driver either.

Ah yes, remember, NOT FONDLY, the Harrison aluminum radiators on vintage Vettes. They DO NOT take a repair. My 68 has a 24" radiator. Taking it to a shop here and have THEM recore it! Can't beat the "been in the busines for 30 years" workmanship in copper!! All I have to do is say NO PAINT Y NO PINTURA! to cover English and Spanish! Radiator shops ALL have that sloppy sh*t! LOL!
