    It was a public holiday and these pic's were taken after a parade. Saying that, it was only a couple of weeks ago that I saw it out on the open road!

    John, Thanks for the clarification.

    Yup, late model, don't know enough to be able to identify it specifically. But they aren't making anymore 'cause the Holden plant closed last year. ALL our vehicles are now imported. Link to more images of Holden Utes - https://www.google.com.au/search?q=holden+ute&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBAU753AU753&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjqzZ2_ovfZAhUCWrwKHeP0CKsQsAQIOg&biw=2049&bih=919

    John, Thanks for the identification. But.....I notice the pic you posted has round rumbleseat lid corners while the ones I posted are square. Could be because its an Aussie built body? Also notice the mudguard(fender) step in your pic is further forward than the one in my pic, putting aside the obvious difference that mine is on the left side while yours is on the right. But, in your pic, I love the swoopy looking step plate just forward of the rear bumper

    Parked across the street from my house this morning, was this. Know it's well on it's way to becoming a Rod, but it is what it is.
  7. Someone needs an auto ID

    Can anyone make out what's written on the pennant thing on the radiator cap?
  8. E & B headlamp

    That's what I thought too, however with the deterioration on the tag just wasn't sure, therefore the (?). Haven't had a chance yet to put your tips into practice.

    Greg, Thanks.

    Sorry, used the wrong word. Of course I meant vacuum. But too late to protest my innocence now!
  11. E & B headlamp

    Thanks, Spinney, for identifying the manufacturer. I'll try your suggestions re: cleaning, lighting and photographing. Googled Howes & Burley with results coming up for brass era lamps. But will continue the search. Greg, I know very little about motorcycles, but that thought had crossed the wifes mind. Was such a light, with the mounts it has, common on motorcycles of any era? And I can't believe it, but my wife likes it! Wonder of wonders, she even said she'd have it as an ornament! Of course it'll need to be cleaned up with a new glass. Calling it glass rather than a lens because I'd just replace the lens with a round piece of glass cut by the local glaziers.

    Maybe it's that hoses and/or fittings may not be holding pressure after 90 years and/or could be gummed up?
  13. E & B headlamp

    Found this headlamp at a moving sale today. Photos are "as found." Has a tag. but with my feeble eyesight and the deterioration on the tag, I can't make out much more than' the following: Top line - Best English(?) xxxx Middle - H & B Lower middle - Head(?) Lamp No 81(?) Bottom line - xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx(??) About 8+'' across the lens face, about 6-1/2" deep, about 7-1/2" between mount centers. Wondering, what years and cars this may fit? If it is indeed from a car.
  14. Earheart car found

    Another Amelia Earhart car is the '35 Packard Super Eight Coupe in this link. http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2018/02/amelia-earhart-s-custom-built-final-car-on-show-in-auckland.html Worked on this car when it came to Australia. When I say "worked on", I cleaned parts!

  15. 1913 Buick model 25

    Simon, Before today hadn't realised you are an Aussie, so G'day! This looks to be the car you are interested in - http://prestigeclassiccars.com.au/index.php/classic-cars-for-sale/279-1913-buick-model-38-tourer If it is, then it's probably from the estate of a well known NSW Southern Highlands collector who passed away the year before last. Adam has been brokering the sale of many of his vehicles. I went and looked at about 20 Packards that were in the collectors main warehouse in the Southern Highlands last year and felt that most were overpriced, some grossly so. The main drawback to these cars is that they just sat, some for many, many years, because I believe he had something like 700 cars and a similar number of motorcycles. Hope the Buick saw some time on the road. Is the car at Pambula or Mittagong?
