    Identify car from picture

    The trim on the side of the car is basic so Customline is probably correct, I’m a Chevrolet guy so I’m not up on all the Ford models 😀

    Saw these Model A Fords today....

    Seems like every model A Ford ever made is still on the road! Great photos.

    Commrades a good Communist Motorcycle for Sale

    Miller’s Bultaco in Valley View PA had their small but well stocked shop out behind their main business which was....a funeral home! They had lots of notoriety about that combo. Other popular euro bike was Maico, also known as Maico-breako. Fast but not always reliable. One of my friends rode Ossa, another good Spanish bike. Eventually I went from Husky to Honda but my Husky 390WR is still one of my favorite all time rides. Terry

    Commrades a good Communist Motorcycle for Sale

    The CZ motocross motorcycles were decent and sold in the USA. I think they were from Czech Republic. I had a Husqvarna at the time and the CZ bikes were very competitive with them. Jawa showed up in mostly enduro events. All the small euro brands suffered from parts availability. My Husky dealer often scavenged parts from new bikes to keep customers happy.

    Commrades a good Communist Motorcycle for Sale

    BMW inspired motorcycles with WW2 heritage. This version is not stellar for speed or reliability. Ural brand is somewhat better but still not in the class of today’s motorcycles. Terry

    Hydra-Matic won't shift

    Would this book be of help? It covers hydra-matics from 1946 to 1956. Written for repair garage use.

    That can turn into a mighty expensive accessory!

    1961 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 4 door Holiday Hardtop

    I’m going to stick my neck out here and say I like your car. I may be subject to the wrath of the Gods of Originality for saying that but I does seem to be a neat example of a four door car that got some extra style to it. My only nit pick is the wheels, they just don’t work for me in that red color. It’s a bit like trying to tell your GF or wife that her new shoes don’t go well with the rest of her outfit. You like them so that’s fine and all that counts until you decide to sell. Hopefully you still have the original wheels should the next buyer want to try some other wheel scheme. Good luck with the sale! Terry

    To pay or not to pay?...

    Everyone knows people who own old cars are filthy rich so taking some of their money won’t hurt them a bit😀. For me it was the beneficiary of the show that made the choice easier. I agree charging the public seems correct to some degree for most charity shows. Perhaps they hope the free admission will allow those attending to buy other items like food or drink that has a higher profit margin and will help the overall fundraising effort.
