    Wow, $8 to $10k for a custom body, about 3 times what I thought was typical. One really paid for all that craftsmanship to be sure!!

    Would be nice but a good friend once said you can have as much fun with a Model A as a Model J so I guess I will pass. I will say I still enjoy the clean lines of my 30 roadster in the garage while admiring the J from a distance. That said, the Duesy SWB is definately high on my top 5 best in the world list! 😊

    We always let kids sit in our cars, but asking first is key, and going into idiot mode at the mere sight of an interested toddler is ridicules.

    1947 Super Clipper

    Unreal. I think I saw this car in green or orange @ Hershey last year, and it looked really nice...

    Bob, do know anything about the green berline type sedan that was at a lot of CT shows, Southbury and such maybe 20 years ago? Another driven Duesenberg. Somewhere I have pics of it in a restaurant lot on rte 1, always assumed it was local, and likely your part of the state. Mentioned earlier, but seeing if that jogs your memory any...

    A local guy had a Tourster as well as a Lebaron bodied barrel side (AJ correct me if I am wrong about second car body style). The Lebaron was super attractive and driven fairly often a few years ago. He kind of dropped of the show scene recently though, the Tourster sold, not sure of the status of the Lebaron. That would be a contender, though, for a favorite bodystyle for me. Clyne car is equipped with a way to de-stress after a tough day in the board room...

    Bob, yes I believe the Shappy car was both raced and did tow duty at one time. Here is another shot of a local event where that car & a Judkins coupe showed up. That year, Ed was trying to bring Melvin down but had scheduling issues. Note the low windshield profile and slant, sporty! Cool for a smaller local show!

    Friday funnies Xander. Now you need to come up with a legit Duesy story. Best thread of the summer, we cannot let it wither now.. 😊

    Time to move this back to the top. Here is Dick Shappy's covertible sedan. I know phaetons are generally more desirable but I do have an affinity for these cars, as a blend of elegant lines yet sporty. While known as they say, over the years, revival after 50 years in a garage makes for a neat story, no? What is everyone's favorite coachwork on these cars?

    Here is a local example I saw a couple months back, really nice looking cars.

    Are the hobby members getting that old?

    3 dogs in the cabinet over my garage workbench. I told my family I would be fine with sharing space with them when the time comes... Ed, I think that is really cool... I think any business willing to sponsor an event is a friend to the hobby, all good. 🙂

    Yes, 34 Packard and Stutz Bearcat butt. Very inexpensive to run these! Apologies for the mess, I think it's time to dust. Oh wait, they are "barnfinds"... 😉
