    Identify vintage clock

    What make model and year for this clock? Borg Model BY. Maybe '58 Pontiac?
  3. yep--that's me trip east-bound was hot---air con on/doors open return was cooler--doors closed this car has won a wall of trophies--best in shows plus one from Concours d'Elegance it is on the road all the time--what is was made for thanks
  4. My longest cruise was on Route 66, Chicago to LA, 9 days, 2448 miles in an unrestored '51 Henry J. I always took the oldest version of the "mother road" when available--lots of gravel and dirt along the way Second longest was an 8 hour fall color-tour in Michigan in my '54 Kaiser Darrin. Next, and the most fun, was 6 hours, to and from, and on the Tail of the Dragon in Tennessee in my Darrin. Killboy took 64 pictures of me driving it and put them on their website. No "trailer queens" for me--I drive 'em!

    EYE ON DESIGN 17, A FEW PICS

    There are reproduction parts currently available for almost every thing on the Kaiser Darrin. If you haven't found something, look in other places. I have been driving mine for 9 years and haven't put a week of work into it, other than an engine rebuild after a blown timing gear. I was invited to the EOD and had a lovely time. Only complaint was the fact that they played loud oldies all day long, much like at a cruise night--cheapened the aura of the event. I have since learned that enough people complained, it will be corrected next year.
  6. True wire wheels were not an option on the Kaiser Darrin. Wire wheel hubcaps were a factory authorized, dealer installed, option.
  7. For many years I have taken a very simple approach for my engine powered :stuff" which includes: '51 and '54 Kaisers, '52 Ford tractor, '72 and '90 Wheel Horse tractors, 2 chain saws, leaf blower and a power washer. I put clean oil in all and a Battery Tender for the batteries. All are stored indoors. Everything starts in the spring!

    Car Show Damage

    Quite the opposite. They sent an adjuster the next day. After I picked up my car,I questioned their payment thinking that it was excessive. They asked if the shop did a good job--yes. Do I like the results--yes. Asked if it cost me anything--no. So...what's the problem? End of conversation. The whole experience could not have been easier Point Blank Period!

    Car Show Damage

    I got a stone chip on my Kaiser Darrin--basically one big piece of "plastic"--no body panel breaks. It is finished in base/clear. Hagerty did an estimate, picked the body shop and cut them a check for $5K. They spot finished the color(perfect match) and needed to clear coat the complete front end, from door edge to front bumper. That is exactly why one buys great insurance.
