  7. Apperson jack rabbit chassis

    19?? Apperson jack rabbit chassis. I purchased this off a member here a few months ago. In the mean time I have changed directions and will not be utilizing it. Would like to see it moved on to someone who could use it. Would like to get back my investment. $850. Open to offers or trades for something I could use. I,e. Brass era speedster parts.

  10. Speedster Builds.............

    Al, the 24 lafrance is cast aluminum floorboards and cowl. It is chain drive and complete with all the linkages. The 29 lafrance is a steel cowl with aluminum floorboards. It is left hand drive, center shift, chain drive. The seagrave are both right hand drive, outboard shifters, shaft drive. They both have really neat looking rounded cast aluminum cowls with aluminum floorboards. marc

  14. Speedster Builds.............

    Al, Terry, Joe, It is very sad to me to see the lack of quality, craftsmanship and pride in all aspects of things today. We own/operate several new pieces of equipment in our business. Mostly tractors and loaders. $200,000 new tractor with leaking window seals and a pinched fuel line at 25 hours run time. Then a bad flare on the steel main hydraulic feed line at 40 hours. Dealer mechanic said he sees these issues time and time again on new tractors. 3 days ago about 9:30 at night all the fields lights went out. Ended up being a melted down relay. Mechanic said this is common also. All this has made my appreciation for the equipment from the brass era and the men who built and designed them that much greater. The demand for welders, carpenters, pipe fitters and so on in my area is great. The journeymen are retiring out and the youth of this country don't want to work let alone get dirty. I have a good friend in our town that is in quality control at an automotive parts vending plant. He tells me all the time of parts that are not up to spec being shipped hoping the assembly plant will go ahead and use them. This country has become a disposable society in many ways I feel. Well. I will get off my soap box now but I bet most of you know exactly where I am coming from. Marc
  15. Seagrave t head

    Al, both corn and soybeans. We had a good start to spring planting then it turned cold and very wet. A lot of replant had to be done so part of the crop harvest was pushed back somewhat. We hope to be wrapped up by late next week. Can't come soon enough. I am more than ready to clean up equipment and put it to bed for the winter and turn my attention to the shop. marc
