  1. So here I am still looking for that elusive 1929 Chrysler Model 75 roadster and a thought came to mind. What methods of search yield the best results? Car Wanted ad in Hemmings, online collector car for sale sites, Ebay, Craigslist or the enlistment of an "agent" of some sort who does the search work for a living? I'm interested in finding out how you fellow hobbyists have successfully found a not so common automobile, what has worked and what has not. Please advise.
  2. Xander, you are a hoot!
  3. Hi guys, thank you mike6024 for posting the youtube film. It is a beautiful car but it is completely restored to show condition , that is why I've posted the condition of the car I'm looking to find as a grade 3. Oh and Bob, just so you know I have not been sitting around doing nothing regarding the search. I always look to other hobbyists for tips on how to improve my style. It probably will be more difficult to find one in an anything less than restored condition.....
  4. Hey Xander, I called Ross but they have not returned my call, could be BS?
  5. Does anyone have some information about this horn? Restoration details or just maintenance tips would be most appreciated. Also, did these horns come standard on any automobile makes or were they replacement items?
  6. Thank you for your interest John but I'm going to hang tough on this. Again I do appreciate your input.
  7. Looking for one of these automobiles in grade 3 condition, serviceable unrestored or older restoration requiring maintenance. Leo

    1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster Wanted

    Steven 123, thank you but no.
  9. So I'm looking to find a 1929 Chrysler Model 75 roadster in acceptable condition (not show restored) and in the past few years....nothing. Meanwhile, the talking heads are saying that the pre war collector car market is dying because the owners (the baby boomers) are dying and the more youthful collectors have no interest in pre war automobiles. I've read quite a bit on this and I don't know if I buy it based on the prices I see being paid for pre war cars on the auction circuits. What say you?

    Collector Car Market for Pre War Dying???

    Why a 1929 Chrysler Model 75 roadster? That's an interesting question which has infinite answers. I own a 1930 Ford coupe which is the second Model A I've restored. My interest has always been in cars from the late 20's to early 30's. Amelia Earhart owned a Chrysler 75 roadster and the same car was featured prominently in the 1930 Our Gang comedy "Teachers Pet", with Miss Crabtree driving. The headlights have to be outside of the fenders next to the radiator. What else is there? Why do any of us look to buy a specific car?

    Collector Car Market for Pre War Dying???

    Back in the late 60's, yeah you know what they now call "mid-century" now I got my start in this great hobby and at that time I remember being labeled as eccentric or daft. How things have changed. I have to confess that I have contempt for those who have pursued this solely as an investment to make money, just a commodity that they have no love for. They have in some instances succeeded in driving up values to the point of excluding true affectionados from the hobby. Not a good thing.

    Collector Car Market for Pre War Dying???

    Hey guys, I know you are all well intentioned when you refer me to a site having some other car for sale but I'm not interested in anything other than what I'm looking for. Thank you just the same.......

    Collector Car Market for Pre War Dying???

    Hi Rusty, what color? Don't really care about that since as you said find one is hard enough without being fussy......

    Matt, I like your philosophy very much. Time is the most valuable and non-infinite thing that we have.
  17. Needing restoration, restoration in progress or basket cases considered. Information on this would be most appreciated. Thanks, Leo

    1929 CHRYSLER MODEL 75 ROADSTER

    Not what I'm looking for thank you. Just an aside, I doubt anyone could ever find all the parts needed to restore this vehicle.......

    1929 CHRYSLER MODEL 75 ROADSTER

    Well another year has gone by and I'm still looking for one of these nice automobiles. I know there is one in Hemmings this month, gorgeous car, I knew the owner, we spoke at Hershey several times, however that car is beyond my budget. What is in my budget would be a solid #3 car, unrestored or an older restoration. Please respond if you know of any....
  21. Please recommend someone reputable to appraise a car in this location.

    I Need an Appreser for Union City, Ohio

    Thank you for your answer. I'm looking at an automobile in an ebay auction. I'm not familiar with the particulars of the model and it's condition can be made to look better than it is by good photography. It is not an inexpensive car. That is why I want an appraisal. No longer an issue. Thanks to all.

    1929 CHRYSLER MODEL 75 ROADSTER

    Well here we are over 1 year later and I'm still looking for 1929 model 75 roadster. Have any come out into the light of day lately?
  24. Hey horn professionals, which auto ahooga horn was the largest and loudest? I realize that those two terms may be mutually exclusive. I have an E. A. Laboratories Mileaway Model S and it's quite loud.
  25. I'm in New Jersey and have State Farm insurance, had them for years with no issues. I'm currently driving a 1991 Ford Bronco (SA) which has only 22,000 original miles. I'm retired and do not drive a third as much as I did when I was working. So I'm talking to my agent about agreed value coverage for this truck and he seems to be unfamiliar with that term. Do any of you have an agreed value policy through State Farm for your daily driver vehicle (regular registration, not collector or historic)?
