  1. I had a brand new 1977 Olds Cutlass Salon it cost $8,000 new . After 6 months all the silver paint fell off from the back of the front doors where the door handles are across the complete trunk and rear fenders . The front fenders , doors and hood were like brand new . I had to go see the GM claims adjuster . He told me it was normal wear and tear from stone chips from driving along the highway . I responded that is fine but I do not drive along the highway backwards . They ended up painting the car for free . About 4 years later I had the whole car repainted and the body man said to me . I can see you had the hood , doors and front fenders replaced as they are like brand new . He said the rear fenders and trunk metal were completely perforated . I told him the story and he said GM had tremendous quality control problems with the cars made in their Sainte Therese , Quebec assembly plant . The plant is now closed down but the poor work ethic effected GM sales .

  4. I worked at the AMC plant in Brampton , Ontario in 1972 - 1974 assembling the Gremlin , etc . All they would do is run the car through a car wash at the end before it left the factory . I do not know if there was wax in the wash ? ?

  20. I was reading a book about Charlie Chaplin and his car was a Locomobile 1917 ? I tried looking for a picture but cannot seem to find one . Could someone post a picture of the car for me ? Where did the Locomobile stand as far as prestige in cars manufactured ? Did it have more of an English design as Chaplin was for England ? I understand he was the highest paid person in America in 1916 . $10,000 per week or in 2017 dollars about $12,000,000 per year . Eggs were 25 cents per dozen if the puts things in perspective . Thanks
  21. Thanks very much Carl and everyone else for all the effort . I believe Chaplin had a 7 passenger touring ? These pictures give a very good look at what the car looked like and also how expensive it was . It is too bad the survival rate of these cars is so low . Thanks Mark

  25. A friend of mine says when they catch the thief . You should be allowed to go into his home and browse through his possessions. Then take his possessions equal to the dollar value they took from you .
