    1903 Ford A

    Thank you gentlemen for your candid and honest assessments. I have seen an original engine which was offered to me but then a '''friend" talked the seller out of letting it go. There is a very capable fellow manufacturing new engines in Canada and the work is in process. The figures would come in below the $100K mentioned value and a partially correct car sold in June in Nederland for $166K I am of the opinion that this Brennan engined car with almost twice the horsepower of the 1903 original 8hp engine would be a fine reliable performer and one should not base their entire automotive plans on a L to B run which to say the least can be expensive and stressful. I saw nothing of Hershey this year as I was totally engaged with the two machines I took for sale. I brought them both home and am somewhat surprised as it was not due to a lack of interest. My only other regret is that I was never even able to get away long enough to get a Sherri's crabcake.

    An incredibly discerning and sharp eyed sleuth at the Hershey AACA flea market has found the lightly stamped vestiges of a number in front of the 27. On closer examination after carefully scraping a little more paint a 5 was found every so lightly applied. This makes the body #527 probably thereby making the car worthless as teams of micrometer men and measuring squads descended upon it and held clandestine meetings about it. The word WRONG has been applied to the engine . I do not know what to say but that I apologize for wasting everyones' time.

    1930 7-45 sedan. Only one known?

    'Don't be a luddy-duddy! Don't be a mooncalf! Don't be a jabbernowl! You're not those, are you?' I have a Black seven passenger original 833, perhaps it is this one that the "ex perts" remember.
  11. The mounting base is a Packard design and the "right" colour.
  12. difficult to see how this automobile ended up in a pile before a modern road hog
  13. In "The Blot" Louis Calhern was driving a Daniels
