    Music in a Pre-War Car??

    I wonder how much you'd be able to even hear in a 27, they're not exactly quiet cars

    What to material to use between a wood and metal joint?

    One of my books talks about 'anti-squeek' material which you should occasionally keep oiled to prevent noises.

    RM auction at Hershey

    The early steam stuff was expensive, but someone got a decent deal for a later stanley - maybe there is hope I can afford one in my lifetime

    What did you buy at Hershey this year?

    I've got one in my cad and it weighs a friggen tonne, basically you have an exhaust cut out that directs heat through it and then back out your tail pipe - can't do wonders for the exhaust efficiency Would love to get to Hershey to see if anyone has anything for my cad, but alas the tyranny of distance

    1926 Clutch

    Doesn’t the book tell you to plug the drain with a rag and run the car with gas on the clutch?

    My caddy has the same problem, I’m wondering also if anyone has managed to repair it

    Several million dollar collection for sale.

    Wonder if he’ll actually respond... he advertises in the caddy magazine and has never emailed me back

    Buying on ebay. Don't use your phone!!!!

    I've bought most of my literature on eBay for my Cad and have never had any problems - some of this stuff is 100 years old you're not going to get something perfect.... The worst quality stuff I've bought are the repro's, the scans are usually terrible

    Government vehicles (GOVs) - first ones?

    Our archives have lots of early photos of government cars coming into regional towns - there doesn’t seem to be any consistency with makes so I guess they just bought what was available. Mostly American/Canadian made stuff visiting regional towns and English cars/trucks in Melbourne
  13. What's the most unexpected thing you've come across when looking for parts? Mine happened recently, when I found (on ebay) a NOS Delco coil resistance unit that was specific to 2 years of Cadillac only (1921 and 1922)... Mine had been resolded at some point and someone just happened to be selling a NOS one, what are the chances!

    When they’re properly setup it doesn’t actually take that long to draw fuel through when the vac tank is bone dry. 10 seconds or so is enough on a 26 Buick to get it started
  15. I have a heater in the rear of my closed 5 passenger Cadillac coupe (how you supposedly got 5 people in it is also a mystery) It has excellent visibility because all of the windows are massive including the rear. All four passenger windows are roll up as well i suspect another reason for the popularity of touring will be the sheer amount of heat and fumes some of the engines produced. Even on a 30c day, it gets pretty hot in the 26 Buick tourer and one of Buick’s not so great designs has excess fuel drip on the hot exhaust pipe...
