    1910 Stanley 10HP Model 60

    There was no access to the rear yard where that car was, it had to be carried piece by piece through the house to the front drive. Was rumored to have raced a Pomona, late teens early twenties. Still have the bucket seats and tanks from that time.

    1908 REO hub caps

    Dave, equally nice work on those hub cap wrenches. I'm sorry I don't know what years are the same. I was selling these for a friend that had a 1908 2 cylinder car several years ago. My knowledge of REO is very limited. I know some of the REO people see this site so perhaps one of them can help you. John Kelso

    Raymond Loewy design....

    Thank you, although just a boy then I remember the time well. JFK, Jackie and Air Force 1 were a class act
  8. Great job, thank you for providing us with water. I like the magnetic dash plaque.
  9. Good suggestion Charlier spoke to Registration Chairman this morning and its taken care of.
  10. I hope someone can answer this , I have a 1910 car registered for the meet and planed to arrive Saturday morning, I didn't choose "trailer parking" when I registered because I thought it was for the folks who had planned on being there for the week or for RV's. I always thought there was show car trailer parking at every National Meet. If the AACA wants to encourage the participation of brass era cars then they need to state in the registration that if you are trailering you need to pay the extra fee. I hope that the AACA has considered those of us who couldn't or don't want to drive our freshly restored vintage car to an event to be told that there is no parking available.
  11. I am repairing the wood in a 1936 Lincoln Lebaron body and have come across some issues. The first picture shows the right side with glove box door wood removed. Looking closely you will notice at the front of the horizontal piece the rod for the rumble seat latch passing through, the hole cut through this area took about three quarters of the strength of the wood. There is also a piece of wood passing left to right on the body supporting the wood that supports the top of the frame for the body but does not attach to any wood at the sides. The second picture shows reinforcement plates added to the deck, the one in front is under the upholstery and also under the flat board supporting the seat back.It has been observed that these plates were hand drilled and only countersunk where screwed were placed. There were three screws located under this plate, as shown in picture three. The fourth picture shows the left side with the same added pieces. In the fifth picture, showing the left side, the horizontal piece is sagging somewhat but when in place its bottom lines up with the top of the vertical piece. There is no evidence they were ever attached and to further complicate things from the saw marks it appears there was a cutout in the horizon piece where they should have met. looking to the right side of this picture you will also notice the left side of the piece going left to right that I mentioned earlier. I am no stranger to wood bodies but this is the first Lebaron and the newest I've worked on. This body is #11 so it is midway in the production. I expect to make some alterations to the wood such as making sure its all tied together and structurally sound, at this point it is fairly easy and I think will make a better job in the end. Thoughts? Thanks John Kelso

    Cecil Bozarth's Passing

    A few months ago Cecil contacted me because I had purchased a 1936 Lincoln LeBaron Convertible Coupe, A car just a year older than his. We exchanged some pictures and information. One day he sent me a note saying he had some dash trim he was removing from his car (not correct he said for his but the same as mine) and would send it to me. Unbeknown to him I was missing a few pieces. Being very grateful I offered to send whatever he felt fair including shipping. The answer was "they are a gift". Today I am sad. My kindest regards to his family. John Kelso
  19. Came across this correspondence while sorting through some Auburn books I've had for 40 years. This should answer that often ask question ,when did they change to the new Tenite steering wheel, can I upgrade my car and how much will it cost?
  20. I have an 31 to 33 8 cylinder head and distributor if that will help as I recall the casting is a GU number on the head. John Kelso McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania
  21. Have 2 pieces of 31 Buick series 50, one color foldout and one larhge color book approximately 40 pages. Also some early Stanley

    1967 Jaguar XKE Roadster

    Funny thing Keiser31 I had the same dream about the same time I saw a 1962, got my first E Type in 1970. Never understood the negative publicity, if you can read a manual and own some tools(manual tells you how to make the special ones) it behaves like a proper motor car, or maybe I'm still in that dream world my wife says I retreat to.
  23. Looking for a 1924 to 34 Lincoln Roadster or Conv. Coupe. any condition. Thanks

    1924 to 1934 Lincoln

    Hi Linus, Your right I really didn't want another L since I have one that I really like. But I haven't had much luck finding a K Convertible Coupe or Roadster. There are some very pretty L roadsters out there as well as the Lebaron Convertible Coupe so I thought I'd give that a try as well. I could sum it up by saying the placement of the top when down is most important to me. I really like the 31 and thought perhaps a 29 or 30 L was close. I'm looking pretty much for my last project and ideal it would be a K. Have had chances at Packards and some Cadillac but they don't interest me. Perhaps I need to offer a finders fee, any help would be greatly appreciated, could you post something of the Lincoln Page. Thanks, John
