    Occasionally, someone builds one of these where everything comes together in the right sort of flow. I don't believe this is one of those times. This is for sale on Facebook Marketplace.
  2. I'm not at all familiar with this make, but I'm guessing a 1960s time frame. Seems like a nice car, and it is driven regularly. I see it once or twice a week.

    What Is It? 2018-08-07 1230

    Sorry for the poor quality cellphone photo. I saw this in a local picture framing shop. Due to my apparent interest, the shop owner asked if I could identify the car. I cropped the photo to bring the car in closer, but you pay a price in clarity when you do so. The bumper made me wonder if it might be a 1920s Buick, but I'm just not that familiar with cars of this era. Thanks in advance for your responses.

    Make and year please

    That crack about being the name for stalls in the restroom tickled the whiz outta me. And, I could not agree more with what you said about new and exciting in the beginning, only to become anything but that.
  5. Sitting outside Sevierville, TN today 7/16/2018 - I texted the number on the for sale sign. Guy is asking $8500. Engine is a 289 V8, automatic tranny with supposedly 69,000 original miles. Car is pretty clean, dinged on the RF near the headlight. I took a bunch of photos, but could only post a couple due to file size. Don't know the seller, don't know a thing about the car. Price seems sorta high to me - I know this is not one of the more popular Fairlanes, but it is one of my favorites. I would imagine it could be bought for less than what was quoted in the text. I have a bunch of pics, should anyone be interested enough to see them. Interior looks original, worn, but reasonably clean. The top rear seat cushion has split open from sun exposure. Car was locked up, couldn't really see inside that well. Seller can be texted at 865-603-5177. Sign on the car says TEXT ONLY - MAKE OFFER
  6. Wow! That was undoubtedly a total beast before being neglected. I hope someone saves it. Keiser, old cars must hatch around you.

  8. Saw this ad whilst browsing Facebook, or Spacebook, as I call it, Marketplace this morning. The link to the ad on Facebook is directly below. The only info listed is on the Dodge pickup, though the seller does mention that all three vehicles are available at one price.
  9. Found the photos of this interesting vehicle on the 247 Autoholic site.

    Can Anyone Identify This Car?

    Well, I cheated and did a Google Image Search. If the search proved accurate, the car is a 1908 Maxwell Briscoe Model H. I have absolutely no idea if that is correct. I remember trying to ID this photo some time back. Apparently, I did not think to do a Google Image Search at that time.

    Hubcaps look sort of like the Chevrolet bow tie. Here is a 1930 Chevrolet for comparison.

    what is year, make, model?

    Think I'm gonna change my mind and go with the Oldsmobile, too. Hood trim seems to match it better than anything else. Sure thought the grille looked like a LaSalle or Caddy, though.....

    what is year, make, model?

    What about a 39 La Salle?

    1938 Oldsmobile pickup truck

    Quite an oddball, for sure. Family resemblance to the Chevy & GMC of that year, though the cab seems a little taller and the door windows are arched a bit more.

    So I guess I'm a Chrysler guy now

    Agreed, they stop very well, and you can lock them up easily - unless the master cylinder blows out. I blew out the MC on a 1954 T&C Station Wagon - every single thing had been rebuilt or replaced in the braking system, with the exception of the power booster. Traveling about 50 mph, I topped a hill, only to see traffic backed up at the bottom of the hill. I hit the brake firmly, to give enough time to bring that heavy beast to a stop. The pedal caught for a moment, then slammed to the floor. I'm very grateful that the car had a good-functioning emergency brake. That taught me a lesson I won't forget.
