  1. I believe the picture with the lady and the one with the two people could be the same car.
  2. The tractor would start easier on gas which is more volatile, but then switch to kerosene for more power and less wear on the engine. If you have not read about "pony motors" you might find them interesting also. The first diesel engines had such high compression that the electric starters if the day could not handle them. Catipillar, John Deere, and many others used a gasoline pony motor to start the diesel and then disengage the pony. Interesting to watch an engine being started by a pony.
  3. Here is a 38 Ford Transit
  4. Do not know how accurate this article is, but it is where the second picture seems to have come from. Made by Hess and Eisenhardt according to this.http://imcdb.org/vehicle_325893-Buick-LeSabre-Stretched-Limousine-1987.html
  5. I always liked the big ole boats, so I would take the Caddy in the background. Oh, and by the way, the first new car I ever bought was a 63 Dodge Dart.
  6. Just a few miles from me. Wish I had some inside parking and a few extra bucks. https://ocala.craigslist.org/cto/6020310393.html WELL, SORRY! That did not stay for sale long I guess. It was a 1971 International JOHNNY REB 1000 pickup. Less than 500 produced with that trim package. Very nice condition inside and out and ready to drive or show. Cross between orange and red paint with cream sides and good JR graphics on sides and hood. $8500.00
  7. Love those old flatheads. Nothing sounds so sweet. It can follow me home anytime.
  8. Great speed !!! Thank you for the hard work and $$$ spent to improve our forum.
  9. In many states only red or amber lights can be used on the rear of a car. The blue dots change the color of the light and is considered illegal.
  10. Great! Good thing you do not live close. My wife loves denim. She would be over every day looking at it.
  11. Looks good. I like that shade of blue. What type of material is it?
  12. Here is a 49 Chevy with the hood ornament.
  13. May be the letters on the hood. Also Mercury trucks used individual block letters.
  14. Hope you enjoyed your time in Ocala. The weather has been perfect for the car show. I am thinking the emblem is from 1954. It is the same as the centers on the 54 hubcaps.
  15. I can not say what this button came on, but that crest design in the center was common in the mid 50's. It may be for a lower priced car or truck as most of the buttons back then had chrome rings around the edge. Good luck on your search and let us know if you find the answer.
