    Oddball set of 1930s wheels

    First set has no lug nuts so have to assume it was a slow-moving something... farm trailer. Thanks for the lead on the Ford wire wheels. The wheels are at an auction and depending on condition I'll see if they go home with me.

    Oddball set of 1930s wheels

    The set without lug nuts might be from a farm trailer??? It has farm rubber tires on them right now. Second wire wheel set has generic center caps. Any clues???
  3. Should I pack up my prewar parts and vend at Luray this week ? I'm only 2 hours away. Just bought a foot tall stack of prewar head gaskets that need new homes. I vended the first two years and was happy with the buyers. Missed last year. Who is going ???
  4. Buying a box of autoparts at local auctions has been fun because I usually have been able to identify them quickly and easily. I've been known to brag that I have enough parts books to fill a bass boat. Crazy thing is I have too many hobbies and never have time to use the bass boat so some of my hobbies have to go...! Am selling off my collection of auto parts ID nooks. I'm not leaving the hobby just regrouping. Most of the books are on eBay ending tonight and Tuesday night. Here's a link for more info...

    Floyd Va - Three Day Show

    Here is the number one reason why I drove 4 hours.... the view...! Mini vacation all the way. Good crowd of buyers on Saturday no complaints. And yes the 67 Mustang is still for sale.

    Floyd Va - Three Day Show

    Some photos from a swap that is growing every year, over 300 spaces sold.... and a view that just can't be beat. World class faciility, showers that are heated yes...! Live music on the stage with the car show as back-drop. Local BBQ vendor and a local church dishing out the food stuffs. I ALWAYS spend too much on treasures. Best thing about the show ( other than that view... did I mention it's 360 degrees of mountain tops ) is that the small staff is friendly and ever eager to listen to their vendors.

    FS: 1939 Buick Front Emblem - NICE

    Hello Bob.... I still have it. it's a nice piece. Send me a IM with your payment preference. -RR
  9. From my brief research looks like Philco was factotry issue, and this Motorola is aftermarket. It has a matching faceplate so for aftermarket Motorola stepped it up. I'll get photos maybe later tonight prob tomorrow. Thanks for the info on availability back in the day...!
  10. Picked up a Motorola radio and speaker for a 1949 Studebaker... has nice knobs and faceplate. Did many of these cars come with the factory radio... just wondering if there's demand. Photo to come.
  11. Landlord gave me and my piles of stuff an eviction notice... I'm work'n hard to rid up and clean up around here. Bringing a ton of stuff selling it ALL. Am returning with a empty truck. LOTS of stuff in the dollar pile. Located at the start of the car corral on edge of the Greenfield GCE-42 thru 45. I usually have themed manequins and hay bales to rest on, but this time around it's all business and will be brings boxes and boxes of NOS and good quality parts. $60 for the big micrometer it's about 3 feet long...! If I sell enough maybe he'll take pity on me and renew the lease... PLEASE TAKE HOME MY STUFF THIS WEEKEND. I owe him some money that might be an issue too.......
  12. Giant Center had free wifi last year.

    Trending - Pre-War swap meets!

    Have not been back to see the lady but stopped in Monday. Since I was hauling my 1962 Shasta Compact Camper ( with wings ) I figured I could stop in and keep my name fresh in her mind. She remembered my name, I pointed to my love of old trailers with my Shasta in tow...... and hope'n for the best the lady starts tell'n me it's not for sale. Says "A Million Dollars" and I won't sell it. The one bartering chip I didn't have was cash in hand. I'm gonna be patient and give it another try later this summer with cash next try. I did let her know that cutting the feet and wheels off the antique trailer was not a good idea. Bumped into another lady who has a stainless trailer sitting in the woods on one of her properties. She doesn't know if it's round or flat on front.... I'll be chasing after that lead next week.
