    Cooper Duesenberg at auction

    Makes you wonder how a custom coachwork shop ran in the 1920's,1930's, there had to be custom wood framework guys, panel rollers and final fit people. Wonder if it got specialized to the point there was a left rear door expert etc.? Bob

    Cooper Duesenberg at auction

    ^^^^^^^ We'll never know but that may have one of the two J's that came out of the basement storage area of the Branchville Shell station after WWII. Jim Hoe paid $750.00 for the pair, the seller told me that story back when I was in High School. Bob

    Cooper Duesenberg at auction

    Some time in the late 1970's Dad and I got to sit at an AACA Annual Awards dinner table with Al Fererrara and his wife, what a great guy. When we told him we were from Ridgefield he said he had a Duesenberg that belonged to Bill Oexle at one time, and showed me a photo. It was back in the late 1970's but I remember it looking some what like the Nethercutt 20 Grand. Bill Oexle traded it even on a new Cadillac in 1949 or 1950, guess that was a good deal at the time. If this description sounds familiar to anyone please post a photo and history on the car. Bob

    You never know what you will see.

    Is that on front of Bill Smith's Speedway Collection? Bob
  8. Back in January my daughter and I toured the Mullin Collection in Oxnard, Ca. most of the Bugatti collection was replaced with a interesting collection of Renault products. As luck would have it Peter Mullin is the featured collector at this years Lime Rock Fall Festival. A half dozen cars from the Bugatti collection I hoped to see in California will be brought cross country and just an hour up the road from me. They plan on having the largest Bugatti gathering in America on Labor Day weekend 50+ cars, and a Bugatti Race on Monday,see you there.

    Loyd Young auction

    Interesting to think what the selling prices are on 1932 Ford 3Window Coupes compared to prices on the cars in this auction. Wonder how many went to dealers and will be in tents at Hershey or upcoming auctions? Bob

    HERSHEY FALL MEET!!!!!

    I guess it comes down to liking the cars I own, reading about their history and sharing time with like minded people. I accept the fact the "Late Models" won and won't quit until every one thinks they are the greatest things on four wheels. You'll never remove my memories of happy times in the hobby. Bob

    Loyd Young auction

    Fine collection of cars. I wonder if that 1921 Templar would run the highway at 60MPH, looks like it could. The '22 Marmon. '19 Peerless & 22 Pierce Arrow are good looking "Dark Ear" cars. The '05 Cadillac looks fine also. Bob
  13. I'm happy with the food people across from us. They start to pour coffee as soon as me arrive in out spot. Bob

    Is this car worth something.

    That is sad to see, I may have been at that Mahwah, N.J. show in 1978, one of the better meets at the time. Bob

    HERSHEY FALL MEET!!!!!

    Ah, the Good Old Days of Hershey remember the blue white red and green fields and the mud, it really was special. Guys would stay open late under the light of Coleman lanterns. Today the lights NEVER GO OFF on the black toped "fields" but almost everyone is off to a motel or inside their camper by 5:00. I swear I'll NEVER get that old. Bob
