  1. Thanks, if I have no responses through this forum, and I do not come up with a nice car through some of the fellow enthusiasts, I will try the Open Forum you mention. I am not familiar with it, but I will look into it. Thanks again for the input. Bill
  2. Hi guys, We are currently looking for a 1915-1927 era Franklin open four door Touring for the Eyes on Design Concours Show held this Fathers Day (June 18th) on the lawn of the beautiful Edsel & Eleanor Ford Estate in Grosse Pointe Mich (suburb of Detroit on the bank of Lake Saint Clair). The car must be a very well restored model, and will be in a special feature class of open Touring cars called Touring America. The show is one of the mid west's top Concours type events. It usually attracts some 250-300 hand picked cars for specific classes relating to vehicle design, and has a ton of spectators and media. It is a wonderful event, and the old historic mansion will even be open that day for tours. One note, the Air Cooled event is at the Gilmore Museum this weekend also, so a participant could actually hit both events in one weekend. If interested, forward me a pic or two of your car and I will get back to you. Thanks, Bill
  3. Hi guys, We are still looking for a well restored 1919-1927 Hudson Touring for the Eyes on Design Concours show. The one in the area can not attend due to another event, and I have not as of yet had any responses from owners of well restored Touring models. It most be a 4 door open Touring, not a coupe or sedan. Anyone have any leads? Drop me a note, thanks....Bill
  4. Hi Guys, We have a gorgeous 1905 REO for the early Touring America (1900-1915) class, but we would still like to find a Touring from the 1918 to about 1927 era for the later Touring America class (1915-1927). I have been contacted by a couple folks with different body styles, but it must be a very nice four door open Touring for this class. Please drop me a line if anyone knows of any. As a side NOTE, I will be looking for a 1920-1929 Roadster for a future class, perhaps 2018 show, if anyone is interested in letting me know in advance. Bill
  5. Does anyone know (or have contact info) for Bob Carter (Bucyrus OHIO)? He has a red '23 Durant Touring.
  6. Thanks Mike, I will do that this weekend if I do not hear from anyone this week.
  7. The HCCA and AACA Tours are really nice, a lot of very unique cars. How about the non-tour events, say 1-2 day shows or events in old historic towns or areas around the country which cater to the older cars from before the 1950's? Anyone been to any of these events that maybe are hidden gems, perhaps not well known but are must see events for old car enthusiasts? I am sure everyone would love the input from anyone who knows of some of these.
  8. For the last few years, we have been going to the Old Car Festival at Greenfield Village (pre 1932 cars only). Events like this allow car owners to display their older cars in a neat setting with similar cars, then drive your car around. In the Detroit area, we have a lot of actual Cruises, and millions of car shows (including Saint John's and Eyes on Design Concours events, and events at the Gilmore Museum), but nothing else in a nice or historic setting geared specifically towards older cars. Is anyone aware of any other shows around the mid west (or where ever) which focuses primarily on the early cars, perhaps in old or historic settings, towns, museum districts? Not specific to one brand, like a Studebaker meet or a Model A show. Everyone is aware of Hershey and Carlisle, but what other hometown neat events are out there for the older car crowd that may not be well advertised or widely known, but worth traveling to attend?? Bill
  9. CWC references the block casting company in Muskegon Michigan used to produce the early split head six engine blocks during this era. Bill
  10. Thanks Bill, I did contact a couple people in the WOKR, but never heard back from anyone. Bill

  15. Yes, I have e-mailed Mike in the Graham Club and a couple others, but they are not aware of any around our area. I also contacted the gentleman who restores Sharknose's down south, but he can't help either. I am very surprised. I will keep looking. Bill
