  1. Great Classic Sedans

    I suppose I have to agree with you, but it goes without saying I wouldn't kick either car out of my garage for leaking oil!
  2. Hopefully someone here can help me: According to production records, my 1938 Lincoln LeBaron roadster was delivered to Alexandria, VA with black paint and medium brown leather interior. There were only two special request: 1) to add a radio, and 2) to delete the passenger side armrest. In talking with the Benson Ford Research Center, I learned that FDR's Brunn convertible sedan "Sunshine Special" was also delivered to Alexandria, VA, and also had the medium brown interior and armrest deletes in the back. Long story short, I suspect my car may have some connection to the U.S. Federal government, given its delivery location and configuration, but the Benson Ford has no records. I've seen pics of convertible coupes used as chase vehicles in presidential motorcades, but none of a car like mine. Does anyone know of any records of Full Classics purchased by the government? Thanks in advance.

    Great example of a beautiful formal car.

    K8096 got me thinking about Stutz. Another beautiful close-coupled sedan (I think that is the correct terminology?)

    I dunno, bring the Packard and the Duesenberg to my garage and let me stew over it for a few years ...
  6. Comparing 1931 Cadillacs -- V8 vs. V12

    I'm not surprised that the V-12 with its more complex overhead valve arrangement might be difficult to deal with, but I wouldn't have thought the L-head V-8 would be problematic. Or was it some other part of the mechanicals?

    Edinmass -- Wow, that car embraces the length of the sedan beautifully. With regard to being a Pierce-Arrow guy, no one is required to be monogamous when it comes to cars

    I'll play another card: The 1933 Silver Arrow

    I don't think this car is underappreciated (and rightly so): 1936 V-16 Cadillac sedan, still in the original family. I had a chance to be a passenger a few weeks back. Just an extraordinary car.

    I know I'm not the only one that feels Classic four-door cars don't get anywhere near the respect in the marketplace that they should. What are your favorites? I wave the flag for Lincoln, so here is one of mine, the 1938 Sport Sedan by Willoughby (photo from a Lincoln book of models and suggested color / interior schemes):
  11. Sad News for LZOC...

    Dave Cole was definitely a wonderful ambassador for our cars and the hobby. He will be missed.

    Standard was to have the matching paint color. The others were factory authorized options available from the dealer.
  13. Need additive?

    I agree with what 19tom40 said.
  14. Need additive?

    Today's regular gasoline is better than anything they had when that car was new, with the one exception being the ethanol that has been added. If you haven't already done it, I would replace your old rubber fuel lines or gaskets in the fuel pump and carburetor with new ones capable of withstanding the corrosive effects of ethanol, otherwise the ethanol will eat through them. You do not need a lead additive, but if you let the car sit for long periods of time, you might consider a fuel stabilizer. Hope this helps, and hopefully some other folks will chime in.
  15. I'm not to that point yet -- they made enough of these that there should be a good set out there somewhere.
