Whenever a speedster comes up there seems to be interest in discussing and I know a number of forum members own or are interested in these cars. A fantastic 1913 Buick Speedster is currently for sale in the "Buy/Sell" section of the forum, albeit a bit much for me! That said, I am seeing these surface based on models other than the typical "A" or "T".
So my suggestion is a section dedicated to these cars. Ground rules would be simple - this would not be a hot rod forum or anything like that, but be specifically for speedsters based on running gear no later than say, 1931? (This to allow inclusion of A based speedsters, but the date is only a suggestion.) What I have in mind is really the stuff dating prior to 1920. Granted this is a little different than our other forums, however can anyone think of a better place to house such a forum? Would be great to follow a couple builders or have someone like the builder of the Buick post a bit about their project. Also would be nice to know where some of these folks source parts like the gas tanks, seats, etc.
A friend built a nice T speedster a couple years ago and had the cowl fabbed locally, which I thought was interesting, and it came out great.
Not looking for another controversial topic (hopiing this isn't), and of course would defer the great folks who run our site on any groundrules, but I thought I would see if anyone else likes this idea.
Selfish reason is I want to learn more about these as I have been thinking about diving in. I am confident I could build a decent T based speedster but wonder if something a little more exotic would be possible..
