  1. My uncle was given this key chain when he purchased his new Buick back in 1953 from Flint Michigan. Celebrating 50 years
  2. Hi Jeff the movie was a 1990 Canadian production called Lantern Hill. The first 2 to 3 minutes features the Peerless driving through luxurious neighborhoods in Toronto. Some scenes have Trippe lights mounted while the rest have none. The balance of the movie switches to Prince Edward Island. John
  3. Thank You ScarredKnightfan. Here is a more recent photo as shown in Old Autos a Canadian newspaper dedicated to car enthusiasts
  4. The car belongs to me now and it is a 1929 Model 8125 7 passenger. The picture was taken when previous owner had the car. John

  6. The owner must contact Classic Car Club Of America to have the car recognized as a Classic. Only the 1930-1931 Peerless Custom models are recognized and not the Master models. The 1929 8-125 model was put on the list only after my request about 6 years ago.
  7. Hello Doug 30 Peerless I am from Ontario and own a 1929 8125. Several interior pieces have been reproduced for me by Mike Butters out of Cobourg. He also did the work for Dan Johnsons 1929 8125 which was completed this year. Call me for his number at 416-786-2654 John Knight
  8. I own a 1929 Peerless 8125 and I just checked my oil filter and it is a SA2. I buy my filters # 1006 at NAPA and they fit just great. Good Luck John
  9. The building on the south side of the tracks is part of Peerless. When jumping the fence to get in for a brick myself a local stopped me to ask where I was going. This man had no idea that automobiles were once manufactured on this site.
  10. Hello Jeff It was certainly a pleasure to meet all the Peerless owners and see all the beautiful cars. The green 1929 coupe you asked about was restored by the Pistorius's and belongs to a chap from the Bahamas. Not sure who the owner of the 1911 speedster is but it was most impressive. I have a copy of "Looking For Miracles" and another video called "Lantern Hill". The first 5 minutes of the movie have my car driving through high end neighborhoods in Toronto. John
  11. Had a great time in Cleveland this past weekend celebrating all makes manufactured there. My wife and I were guided around town and even visited what is left of the old Peerless factory. Peerless was very well represented at the show with a roadster,speedster, 7 passenger touring, sport coupes and sedans. There were several of us owners that were not able to bring our vehicles but it was still great to get together.There was some talk about a meet in Florida next winter or spring for any interested Peerless people.

  15. Hi Jeff Yes my friend George is the Graham Paige collector and he has a spare continental 6 from a Graham Paige 621. He also has a spare 8 cylinder but it has a marine configuration. Surprised the chap from Australia never got back to me but for curiosity I will go and check that motor when I get a chance. Winter is upon us now 20 degrees and 5 inches of snow = no more cruises. Take care Jeff John
