    Cars of course! I've owned approximately 200 cars over the last 42 years. Many vintage, lots of mid-century muscle, about 45 of them were Corvettes. I was one of the original Moderators on I do almost all my own work. Complete frame off restorations are my favorite hobby. Spent about 26 years as an ASE certified top flight tech (glorified term for mechanic), mostly with the General but also with Ford and Chrysler. Moved to sunny Palm Springs about 16 years ago and now own a bar/restaurant there.

    1938 O'drive C/L Wisconsin Dells $222

    I winder if this would fit my 1938 Plymouth coupe? Shipping would be a bear.

    ALSA Chrome Paint

    I'm sure many of you have seen this product already. Video here: It looks like it does a pretty amazing job. I was going to buy some and try it on my headlight reflectors. I visited their site and the stuff looks even more amazing and durable. I think it could have many good uses. Then I checked their pricing. Heavens to Murgatroid! It is priced in the stratosphere! 6 oz. for $300 1 quart for $1,500 1 gallon for $4,000 It is so cost prohibitive, I can't see anyone buying it. It rivals actual plating costs, which it seems to me was one of the reasons for inventing it in the first place. Maybe the only way to make it cost effective would be for 3 or 4 people to buy in on a quart or two and divvy it up Oh well.....

    Johnnie's Garage Tow Truck ???

    Great project CTCV! And I agree, nice detective work Mike! Another avenue I have had success with in the past is vintage phone directories. The Hazelton Historical Society will almost certainly have some from the era. Greg

    1938 Packard Deluxe Eight

    I agree, looks like some "touch up" has been done.

    Nice work.

    1938 Packard Deluxe Eight

    Other than the seller's endless run-on sentence for description, this looks like a pretty nice one if the money doesn't get too high. Great that it still has the original order form and surprisingly rust free for Illinois.

    Twelve Dilapitated Lincolns 1925 to 1938

    Probably some interesting history there. Too bad it's all lost to the sands of time.

    1967 Mercury Cougar

    The car pictured appears to be a 1968 Cougar with the front side marker lights and 1968 style steering wheel.

    How much wood is there in a 1936 120 sedan?

    1948 Tucker #1057 on ebay

    You crack me up. Perhaps their synapses were simply misfiring?

    34 Hup

    Looks like it's located in Missouri.

    From the look of that steering wheel and column, one would have to believe this was almost certainly a fatality.

    1936 Packard Packard

    Great car, wretched color. Looks like he had a trophy shop engrave that data plate rather than the hand held, single stamps with a hammer routine.
  14. You are correct. I completely missed the no speedo!
