  4. 1926 Studebaker President front brake shoes

    G'day John, Not a Stude guy, but you could try the Studebaker Club of Australia - http://www.studebakercarclub.net/ Or there are also a number of regional(State) Studebaker clubs too, link to Qld club - http://www.studebakerqld.org.au/ And post on the Studebaker Forum here on the AACA Website. It's further down the page, but here's a link - http://forums.aaca.org/forum/21-studebaker-erskine-rockne/
  5. Couple of Graham pics

    Sunday saw the Shannons Sydney Classic event held at Sydney Motorsports Park, Eastern Creek, NSW, Australia with about 1800 vehicles in attendance. http://www.councilofmotorclubs.org.au/images/flyers/2017SSC.pdf Pictured are the 2 Grahams I saw in attendance one of which, the '34 Model 69 Supercharged Sedan, is owned by a friend.
  6. 1937 One Twenty woody - made in USA?

    Meanwhile, back to the question of whether it was a Packard body or not? Can''t say definitively but believe it is not a Packard body. Looking at the 470+ pictures of 1937 Packards on PackardInfo.com only found 2 '37 Woody's. one of which was a115C(Six cylinder) while the other was a Brooks Stevens body on a 120C(Eight). Also looking at Google images of "Packard Woodys" I know, not a great reference but possibly better than none, Packard Woody's of that era mostly appear to have a a large rear side window or one split in the middle not two distinct "windows" as shown in your photo. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=packard+woody&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBAU753AU753&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiZ45jhuNXVAhUBTrwKHb3GDegQsAQIJw&biw=1517&bih=735#imgrc=_ Accordingly I think its probably an aftermarket body, possibly by a UK coachbuilder. My two cents worth, for what that's worth!
  7. New Detroit Lubricator Carburetors

    David beat me to it! Even "down under" the re-pro carb proved its worth.

  9. MEMBER CLASSIFICATIONS

    Bob, There was a recent(2/3/4 or maybe more months ago?) thread on this topic. From my failing memory, turns out you can access that descriptive by editing your profile and change it to whatever you want. That's why mine is now PACA Member with PACA meaning Packard Automobile Club of Australia!
