    New Museum planned for Birdsboro, PA

    Hi, Charlie. Possibly the junk car ordinance however the expansion of the power transmission operation is currently where the cars were parked. I recall some sat there for years and suspected at the time he wanted the usual top dollar until the cars just rotted away. Peter J.

    Remember Fritz very well, Dave. He must have become grumpy in later years. Some guy stopped to wander through the car lot on a Sunday if I recall. Fritz showed up pointing a pistol asking what he was doing? After that his trouble was compounded when electric utility Met-Ed who either owned the land or took it by eminent domain thus putting Fritz out of business. Old cars are very popular in the Birdsboro area. I see the Mascaro Museum as a good fit for the area. Regards, Peter J.

    Hi, Charlie. Nice to hear from you. Agree. That is why I noted that "Not certain" in my original post as I have not heard anything lately myself. The museum would a lot better for Union Township in my opinion. What type of exotic cars they have remains to be seen. Looking at the race track and club house layout on the sign one had better have very deep pockets to belong. Regards, Peter J.

    Hi, Dave. (I think I hit send at the same time as you). You are correct. Just thought I would post the article to give people a heads up that this may be something nice for them to visit when in the area. Add it to all the other auto related venues such as the Boyertown Museum of Historical Vehicles (20 minutes North of Birdsboro), Simeone Museum (Philadelphia), etc.

    Hello, Phil. J. P. Mascaro is a huge trash hauling business in Eastern PA. They are also a huge supporter of various community projects and charitable organizations in the area. Not certain if plans are still in the making however they own around 600 acres in just outside Birdsboro where an auto race track is/was planned (there is an architects drawing on a sign along Route 724 showing the road course). A country club for race and sports car owners to have a blast on a road course track to include a clubhouse similar to a golf country club. Regards, Peter J.

    Saw this very nice 1969 Lincoln Mark III today....

    Thanks for the clarification, John. It was a bit confusing.

    Keiser, the area code on the for sale sign is 760 (southern California). Where did you see it? Looks like an interesting cruiser. With all the photos of details you take sometimes actually inside a workshop, interiors, up close items, etc., I would think sometimes the owner would offer some info. Certainly would add to your photos. Regards, Peter.

    Hi, Jeff. Hope someone comes forward to assist you. (In my 45 years of business travel prior to retiring I found most motels do not require elevators for a 2-floors. Beyond 2 floors they are required by law or building codes.) Peter J.

    Any Crosley gurus here?

    That is a tempting offer. Take care...

    Great, Dave. Thank you for responding to George's query. Hope you are enjoying the Florida move. Nothing new here in Mt. Penn. Regards, Peter J.

    John, you forgot to mention your friend had to have bought the car without even a 1/2 - 3 mile test drive at which time he would have noticed the under power issues. Add all these other issues quoted above confirms the guy bought the car with no testing. Also wonder why he would keep the car long enough for all the corrosion issues to come into play? Must be more to the story.
