    1931 Cadillac map Light

    Hi, Wayne Elsworth here. I do have one of those light covers. My current number is 413-758-4417. My email is yachtflame@yahoo.com
  8. Hello, I realize this isn’t about cars but I’m figuring that along with antique autos, many of us have various other interests. A friend and I are contemplating using the excess heat from keeping our shop warm to help generate electricity. We have the electrical end of a 30kw generator and are being offered a steam engine. We are reasonably intelligent fellows that only know the basics of steam power. I was wondering if any one here can suggest a book that might help us turn our separate pieces of metal into one that can help run a shop. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Wayne Elsworth Amherst MA

    Staunton Virginia antique car dealer/collector

    There’s a great restoration shop in downtown Stauton. Age has taken its toll and I can’t remember the name of the shop or owner but it probably can be found on the net. Really friendly guy that was restoring cars for museums.

    1931 Cadillac Rolling Chassis with Engine and Trans.

    Wayne here chiming in also. I restore cars. I still have my first ever car, a 1954 Olds Rocket 88 all original. My next vehicle is a 1946 Chevy pickup that I did the 350/350 twenty five years ago as my tow truck for antique speedboats. The next car is a 1930 Lasalle sedan that took me 19 years to restore to the point where I took first in class at the 2014, Lake George Grand National meet where I drove it 185 miles to the show. I also have a 1931 Lasalle ccp that I’m resto- rodding with a S10 drive train that is in year 9 of the rodding/restoration with a few more years to go. And last September I purchased an original nice running 1948 Jag MK V. I support my addiction by making and selling parts for these old Cadillacs and Lasalles. I hate the prospect of a decent survivor being chopped up but if any of this car can be preserved in any way, I feel that’s better then it being scrapped like the thousands were in the 1940’s. My feeling is that I like old cars in many forms...original, restored or created into someone’s vision. If a car is altered, then I try to purchase what is left behind to have saved for another person that is trying to get his “new project” back to original. If people like Pete Sanders, Dick Shappy and me weren’t collecting and saving these parts, most all of us wouldn’t be able to restore and maintain these wonderful old cars. That’s my 2 cents! I am always interested and wanting to purchase any parts I can for these old cars so that future restorers have a source of parts. Wayne Elsworth

    Trico Vision All wiper assembly

    I bought and installed one of the rebuild units. Didn't seem to work as well as I had hoped. I contacted an 85 year old Cadillac guy who told me to put the original parts back in after soaking the leather parts in oil for a day. Works great now! Wayne Elsworth
