  1. Links to the PackardInfo Blogs of the two Packards Ross has sectioned. Panamericana Trevoux Replica The "After Eight" Roadster
  2. Al, I thought the term "New Beauty" referred to Model A's not T's, specifically the 30/31's compared to the 28/29's.
  3. The blacksmith said "it will either break in the first five miles or last 100 years. There is no way to tell which". Wonder if the car and bracket survived a 100 years!
  4. About 2 years ago during the Australian Packard Club's National Rally we visited a private collection where among the cars was a Mustang(I know, not the type of car being considered) which suffered a broken rear axle during the course of one of these Rallies. They weren't carrying a spare, how many different spares can you carry? But he was able to get it "re-welded" by a Mongolian blacksmith, in the middle of nowhere, after it broke. And re-welded, in this instance, means heating up the two pieces of axle then forging them together on an anvil. Was able to finish the Rally then, sometime later, replaced the still functioning re-welded axle with a spare. And, DavidAU, I saw "Penny" on a trailer in the yard of another Vauxhall owner in November 2012 before it was shipped off to the Great South American Challenge 2013.
  5. Images for 1928 Marmon - https://www.google.com.au/search?q=1928+marmon&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjl1eX5y-HSAhVEW5QKHVfGD_MQsAQIGg&biw=1339&bih=610#imgrc=9bU7pp2_d5olNM:
  6. More bubbletops, some by Ed Roth, in this link - http://www.kustomrama.com/index.php?title=Bubble_Top_Cars
  7. One of Ed Roth's "bubbletops"was the Beatnik Bandit - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beatnik_Bandit
  8. Have a look at the first post in this thread - http://forums.aaca.org/topic/268851-the-brush-runabout-everymans-car-1907-to-1913/ The author says he has a 2 cyl Brush!
  9. John, Bob Lamond might still have some copies left of the Brush book he published last year, that is if you're interested? http://forums.aaca.org/topic/268851-the-brush-runabout-everymans-car-1907-to-1913/
  10. Reminds me of an aftermarket Cragar Steering Wheel. From the '60's? EDIT - Link to thread on the HAMB http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/official-metal-flake-steering-wheel-pic-and-id-thread.438873/
  11. Yes, saw one of those in Don Garlits' Museum!
  12. Being "DOWNUNDER" didn't know what CONELRAD was, so with the help of Google found this - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CONELRAD Now I know!
  13. Presuming the engine is in the car, the Eight has a monobloc cylinder block, ie one piece cast iron. While the Super Eight has a separate Aluminium(= Aluminum in the US) crankcase which bolts to the cast iron block. Or have a look at this for '38's from the PackardInfo Website - http://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/modelinfo/index.php?mode=series&id=16th&ButtonSeries=Go
  14. If by 8 you mean "Eight"(120) then none, apart from 2 strips(non structural) the front seat mounts through. If it's a Super Eight then there likely will be more.
  15. Back in 2012 a group in 1 & 2 cylinder pre 1912 cars and motorbikes recreated the first West -> East crossing of Australia by car. The 1912 crossing was accomplished by a Brush and a number of Brushes were among the cars which did the 2012 recreation. But enough of the history lesson, what I really want to share are pic's of one of the Brushes, including the suspension, taken when the cars arrived in Sydney after their trip from Perth.
