  1. You need to be highly skilled or wealthy to restore most cars. The nicest car you can afford will also be the cheapest car you can buy.
  2. Reo Royale

    An excuse for them to put some chrome on the engine? Reo was trying to dress the engine up and the finishes in that picture are pretty close to what they are supposed to be.
  3. Reo Royale

    Too late Eddy. You might have mentioned this a year or two ago.
  4. Whitewall overkill

    I think that 75% or more of the cars you see with metal tire covers have un-inflated tires in them. I'm going to guess that the whitewall and blackwall are dimensionally identical, but I don't know that for a fact.
  5. Famous Car

    If you have stopped reading Hemmings like me you probably missed it:
  6. Ford full classic?

    Any of the coachbuilt European bodied Ford chassis would be accepted. There are a few floating around.
  7. 1937 Graham for sale

    That is a VERY desirable car, unfortunately this one seems to have been messed with quite a bit. I think it might have been on eBay a few years ago too.
  8. Whitewall overkill

    Do you know how many Duesenbergs have had their fenders modified to except the wheels, let alone the wheels and tire covers?
  9. Auburn Speedster paint scheme

    Best of show from Amelia in the speedster class. I lobbied the owner for blackwalls (naturally) but it didn't seem to hurt the car with the judges. One of which is a notorious anti-whitewall guy.
  10. Reo Royale

    280k all in. Should make you Coupe owners happy. An older restoration that still looks great.

    How much bump can you get and how easy is it? Are the rods steel or aluminium from the factory? Duesenberg, Stutz, etc used duralite rods which don't react well to time, revs, or just looking at them.
  12. Whitewall overkill

    One of the issues with the tires of the last 40 years is that they are dimensionally different than original equipment prewar. The Lester balloon whitewall that you see on high end Classics restored in the 70s, 80s, and 90s are just not correct and look stupid. There are some much better tires these days (although still too wide) where I will admit the white walls don't look bad. With regard to your Lincoln, since it is on the build card, I might lean towards putting them back on, but VERY tough call for me.
  13. 1950 Dodge Wayfarer Project $1000 obo

    Actually, you see lots and lots of the 2 door and 4 doors, as well as the coupes, and a few roadsters but I would say you NEVER see this style.
  14. It Wins!! Amaxing Buick wins at Amelia Island!

    I saw your Buick at St Johns and thought it was pretty cool.
  15. 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta SS

    I'm not a tiny displacement sort of guy but that is a really nice car.
