  1. I have seen such offered on ebay from time-to-time.
  2. Here is some info: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/tucson/obituary.aspx?n=lawrence-a-balistreri&pid=147078052&fhid=2500 Dealership was at 6033 N. Teutonia Ave. in Milwaukee. WI
  3. I see those rectangular shaped steering wheels and always wonder what it is like to make a "hard left/right" turn?
  4. 1971 - 72 Ford Galaxie 15"
  5. Ah, need any reminders that we are indeed getting old?
  6. I believe the building where this took place still stands, and is still in use. Today Talgo refurbs rapid transit train cars there: 2725 West Hopkins Street, Milwaukee WI 53216 After spending millions of dollars to redevelop the former A.O. Smith Corp. complex on Milwaukee's north side, city officials are seeing the first signs of payback.
  7. Why does it look as tho I am seeing two different emblems here? The first does not appear to have the curved, pryamid shaped feature on the top? Agree aftermarket because of poor quality Indian head. Initial thought was fender skirt, but not with that peak. I now am thinking goes on rear fender, above tail lamp to give the car a "Cadillac style" peak?
  8. The "Rule of 78s" is prohibited in the U.S. for 61 mo or longer loans? Did not know that. In fact, only vaguely recall the rule at all and had to google it - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_78 Was going to make "tongue-in-cheek' remarks like even tho' 45s were the big seller, I preferred buying 33 1/3s myself!
  9. x3 on the learning something new!
  10. Agree. it beats the add-on spinner knob. Wonder why it never caught on? Also, just noticed what I shall call teeth on the inside of the steering wheel rim, at the bottom (easily seen in the ad, above).. What is that about, I wonder?
  11. That be Flo, the Progressive Ins. Lady.
  12. I have to say, I have never seen or heard of it. It may be now located at Bellingham Motors in MA? http://www.bellinghamautosales.com/
  13. A whole lot of iron and miscellania crossing the block here. So much it will take dayS to auction it all. http://www.sullivanauctioneers.com/auction/huge-collector-car-antique-tractor-collection-2/
