  1. Well Bob I guarantee at the present it is not going to Europe. I have to thank you all for your comments, support and information helping me out o a decision. I guess I will be the only guy around my area with a US made three door touring. Restored years ago and all the sheet metal looks original and wood is excellent as well as the door fits. Was inherited by the grandson who sold it to me I believe. Tired from the drive yesterday but well worth the drive seeing he was negotiable. Hope to have it home within a couple of weeks and take the grand kids for a ride. Thanks Again ....... Joe
  2. Terry he is asking $12,000. and I do not think he is out of line on his price. We are having freezing rain and tonight and tomorrow so I will have more time to think about it. I prefer to have a correct car than being questioned about it.
  3. He sent me a better pictures this time. Thanks again for the help
  4. He sent me this. Would have been nice if he would have sanded it first to bring it out.
  5. The car is actually in the US going on a road trip leaving Sun. morning to have a look see 14 Hr round trip. Then if I buy it a second trip four days later to haul it home. I sent him an email asking for the engine serial number and casting number. I would prefer a 12 to 14 with a wood firewall.
  6. Can anyone help me out on a question. How can you tell a 1915 Ford Model T touring body from a 1916? I owned an early T for over 20 years and the wife would never get in it for the lack of doors. So I sold it one day and have regretted it ever since. A 15 has come up but I am told they switch the 16 title to a 15 being more desirable. Every thing looks correct with the motor stamp indicates Oct. 15. but not sure of the body. It is an older restoration. Yes it is a made in USA 3 door and not Canadian 4 door. Thanks Joe

  8. There is as fellow about two hours from your place that could do the metal work for you in his garage at home. Some of his work took awards at Pebble Beach and other shows over the past few years so I know he can do it. No more dreaming then.
  9. Here is a 1931 Ford Model A being my first antique car I had. I did a ground up restoration on it after being told by my father to never call him if I break down and to either sell it or donate it to a museum. It was a great car putting thousands of miles on tours never letting me down over the years. Sold it to a fellow in 1989 that left it outside until last year when he gave it to his son. We were in the area two years ago looking at an early REO for sale so we dropped in to see if it was still sitting outside and it was as you can see. The only time the car moved when he owned it was when he drove it on and off the trailer getting it to were it sat for 25 years. Engine was seized and tires all flat. The drivers window was down a few of inches the first couple of years for the heat was his explanation. The interior was covered in cat hair and used as a scratching post in places The trunk on it was NOS I bought at Hershey back then now covered in rust. He had a two car garage but it was full of junk. For some reason he could never find time or the stuff ( mainly scrap metal) in the garage was more valuable than to put the car inside. You can see the different layers of snow on over the winter it like tree rings. He also still has a 37 Dodge that he did the same to earlier but finally dragged it out back into the woods where it still sits. A very nice fellow in his 80s now but has a different outlook on possessions I guess. This was posted in Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.... and was asked to start a new topic on this subject as to why you are seeing it twice.
  10. Will the USPS deliver an engine???????????????? I would thing not as in the past they would not handle a dash trim surround as being to large.
  11. Here is the first car I ever restored. Sold it to a fellow in 1989 that left it outside until last year when he sold it. The only time the car moved is when he drove it on and off the trailer.

Anyway I am saying from my last post on this tread we do get snow here and not like my last picture I posted. Maybe I should have started a new thread called USED AND ABUSED. By the way the garage was full of junk as the fellow was a bit of a hoarder.
  12. AACA Lindsay Automotive Swap Meet this year is May 6 & 7 with setup on 4 & 5 2017. Hosted by AACA Ontario Region that was formed in 1955 and hosting an automotive swap meet for the 46th year in Lindsay Ont. Canada. Remember that the Canadian dollar went down the toilet lately and it is only worth 65% so everything you spend from gas to motels to cars or parts is 37% off. Link to a past 2016 video site. Still wating for the new video with the proper date. Anyone recognise that good looking guy on the Gater from last years Glidden or Sentimental tours ?
  13. I have to thank you guys for posting the pictures. I take it where were very few pre 16 cars for sale this year.
  14. Is this the one. I had his name but do not know were I put it.
  15. Did Flint use a Buick body on some of their models?
