    EASTERN DIVISION NAT'L SPRING MEET JULY 11-14

    What a great meet! I never cease to marvel at the amount of organization and work it takes to put on one of these events. Among many things that were well-done I was pleased and impressed when on this wickedly hot day volunteers were going around giving out bottles of ice-cold water in the afternoon. This is also a great venue for the meet. Congratulations Chesapeake region I really enjoyed it.

    1930 Sedan Tire Pressure

    My car uses 700x18 "6 ply" tires. These are basically truck tires and correct for the car and unfortunately balancing is always an issue. I'd like to know what you think of the balance beads, how they are installed when using a tube and if you can recommend a brand or say where you got them. Thanks, Steve
  4. Thanks, it's very helpful and I'll share it with several people who are interested.
  5. Thanks, he was very helpful.
  6. Can anyone suggest a source for the correct color engine enamel for the 1929 Chrysler Imperial L80? In a much earlier post a color was suggested for the 1930 Imperial that looks close. Does anyone know if the 1929 and 1930 engines were the same color? Thanks

    Need photo of 1929 Chrysler generator

    Pete, if you are still looking for a generator for your model 65 Jay Astheimer has been a good source of parts and information. His number is 610 462 3631.

    differential cover cross reference

    Hi Tom, I haven't been on for a while so I apologize for the late response. If you are still looking for the differential cover and haven't talked to Jay Astheimer, I suggest you give him a call. He specializes in in early Chryslers and has helped me with many parts for my 1929 model 75 roadster. His number is 610 863 6955. Steve

    Gibson Auto Co.

    Look at the accessories mounted on the board behind the Ford that I assume are for sale by the dealer. I couldn’t tell what some of the things are but I see a bumper, acetylene tanks, two speedometers (both Stewart?), what I believe may be a roll-back brake, rear foot rest, tire pump, acetylene light perhaps for mounting on the running board, and something I think may be an oiler.

    Duesenberg roadster

    I agree!! As Seldenguy points out, he is well dressed and these may just be expensive custom made shoes.

    Mid 20's 2 door Sedan

    The engine looks a lot like a 1924 Studebaker.

    Offer Insults Seller

    What great advice on how to approach the problem seller. It seems to me that old car owners, especially those not involved in the hobby, are often dreamers who think their car is worth much more than it is, and that it is like the restored one sold at auction, shills and all, or its value is the #1condition price for a #4 car. But it may simply be that this is someone who may not really want to sell a car, only want to find out what he might get for it if he did want to sell it. Kind of like what did Dad really leave me, maybe I'll restore it someday.
