  1. Name written on the transmission!

    That worries me a bit to put someone else's contact information right out there for everyone. I know, it's public information, but nevertheless...
  2. Bock Auto Bar

    I'll guess Sanford Tousey (1883-1961) from a quick google search. No time at the moment to search further...
  3. gardner automobile

    Did someone wake up Ned Devine?
  4. Globe - Kokomo, IN

    Company picnic day? Testing day?
  5. Quoting myself here... As I drove by that station, it seems the old lifts had been replaced with 4 post units. Another bit of history gone...
  6. I had forgotton all about those lifts with the huge center post. There is still one in use around the corner in a small shop that was once a gas station, I believe.
  7. It's simply a demonstration of the new one-point automoble lift destined for a Harbor Freight store near you.

    "John Wick" was the title character in a couple of Keanu Reeves movies...
  9. Avanti R2, 1963, refresh

    You are a brave man!
  10. Funny car stories

    While pumping gas during my high school years, a gentleman from England who was teaching at the local college left his car for a small repair. When he returned, he paid his bill, went into the garage and promptly got in on the passenger side and held his hands up in front of the glove box. As we all smiled, he got out, said "Ah, the pleasures of motoring!", walked around and got in and drove away. A class act for sure.
  11. Buick??? or ?

    Go to the and search "Goodyear balloon" and a couple of feature stories will turn up with multiple pictures.
  12. Auto in old photo

    Could the "visor" in the photo be a lamp on the post running up the right edge of the photo?
  13. Ford agency in Washington DC 1920

    Can't see the pictures.
  14. Restore my buick electra 1969 :)

    Always great to watch your progress. Well thought out!
  15. Where to find exterior trim clips?

    Thanks filozof97. I was considering cleaning them up by some manner, but so many were either missing or beyond use that replacement seems the best option.
  16. The photo shows the type of trim clip that holds the exterior mouldings on my 1959 Fiat 1200. I've been to a few sites and haven't been able to find these - or something similar - to replace my rusty old ones. Suggestions? Thank you.
  17. Where to find exterior trim clips?

    I looked over a number of options at the local NAPA, but didn't see anything I felt would be easily altered. I'll find 'em though. As usual, I'm grateful for all the ideas.
  18. I'm admittedly one of the many in the silent majority who have marvelled at your talent. Your thread is one I always look for. Thank you for sharing this story.
  19. Define replica

    This is obviously the deluxe "Brinks" version for 1929. You know, with the market crash and all, one couldn't be careful enough.
  20. Where to find exterior trim clips?

    Thanks for all the input. I've checked some of these places already and I guess I'll have to contact each to verify the size. My local NAPA store had what looked like a match (like MrFiat's picture above) but it was twice the size of what I need. TONY has his name on the bolts on this car, but was negligent in marking the clips! Here's the size (cm scale of course...)
  21. AH! In my home growing up, it was the dreaded dishpan. Dad would need a nut, or bolt, or something and we'd be sent to the "dreaded dishpan" to search just like your movie illustrates! The experience has had me more than once make a trip to the hardware store only to find what I needed in my own junk box later -- just didn't want to search!
  22. Restore my buick electra 1969 :)

    Great watching you work. I still think you're an old guy with years of experience!
  23. Horn ring I.D.?

    Modern steering wheels with all their electronics and airbags just don't have much class -- safer , yes -- but ugly.
  24. Chrome questions

    I thank all for their opinions realizing all shops have their supporters and detractors. I'll follow up when I get my parts back. Thanks again!
