    My first car (1968): 1929 Ford Standard Coupe. Now restoring 1921 Peugeot Quadrilette 161, 1913 Metz "22", 1911 Hupmobile "20".
  1. A brass car - this Pierce Arrow?

    There is an HCCA Atlanta Regional group plus another in Savannah. I'm sure they will welcome your car on their tours. Our HCCA chapter allows cars up to 1931. The HCCA National tours are for pre-1916 cars, but there are still plenty of tours you can attend with your Pierce. Phil
  2. Metz 22 spark plug

    Yes, your Metz takes the Champion 32 plugs which are quite l-o-n-g. This allows a larger coolant area in the cylinder head. These plugs were also used on hit-and-miss engines. They are interchangeable with a number of other plugs from various makers, also. Unfortunately, none are available new. You can find them occasionally on eBay and flea markets, however. That's where I got mine. They are 1/2" pipe-thread plugs, like the Ford Model T plugs you have now. In fact, the Champion 32 plugs will work in the Metz engine, but are not as efficient. Phil
  3. How to Remove Paint Spilled onto Car

    The oven cleaner trick works well provided the base paint isn't lacquer. I made some videos on how I used it to removed painted pin striping:
  4. Regards from Spain

    Si, start a new topic! At the bottom of the AACA Forum page, we have French, British, Italian, German, Japanese cars, but no Spanish. What cars were made in Spain other than Hispano? Phil
  5. Regards from Spain

    Show us some photos of vintage cars in Spain, Vicente. Phil
  6. Metz Model 22 Muffler

    For wooden spoke and a lot of other advice relating to Metz cars, go to the Model T Forum. Our cars are similar i many ways. Their forum is fairly easy to search. Go to Google and enter "spoke tightening mtfca", for example. The MTFCA has a DVD on wood wheel repairs, also. Phil
  7. Photos didn't appear for me.
  8. Sadly, word from the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain says that the driver, David Corry, has passed away.
  9. HCCA Library Access

    We're confusing the AACA LIbrary and the Horseless Carriage Foundation Research Library. The latter has internet access for their scanned documents. You have to be a member to get full access. Here is a link. I haven't been a member of the Research Library recently, so not sure of the problem. They don't list a phone number, just an email address. Phil
  10. I always thought the advantage of flea market sales was cash money. Internet sales usually involve PayPal or credit cards.
  11. Soldering Tips Needed

    Here's a tool that might work, and a handy one if you do any electronic stuff. It has a adjustable heat soldering iron plus a tiny hot-air gun that will precisely melt solder. You can find more by searching eBay under "Hot Air solder rework tool". Phil
  12. Outstanding Artwork

    Not an easy name to search. Here's what you get:
  13. US Trip

    If you're driving, stop at the Simeone Museum in Philadelphia. They're near the Airport. It's between D.C. and NYC, right off the main highway, I-95. Also near I-95 is the Independence Seaport Museum and several interesting ships you can tour, including the last of Admiral Perry's fleet from the Spanish-American War era. Phil
  14. Dodge Bros. March

    Here's a rarity: a piano roll of the "Dodge Brothers March" by Victor Herbert (currently on eBay).
  15. Ever hear of this stuff?

    I've seen a couple similar products, but never tried them
