    My first car (1968): 1929 Ford Standard Coupe. Now restoring 1921 Peugeot Quadrilette 161, 1913 Metz "22", 1911 Hupmobile "20".
  1. Beware

    I have no cell phone and no gun, but I still like cars.
  2. 2018 Philly General Meeting Questions!

    I agree the Sheraton is a nice hotel, and the room prices are quite reasonable considering its location in center-city Philadelphia. I also thought the banquet meal was very good, but I'm not a vegetarian. Phil
  3. Selling Classic Cars on E Bay ?

    Just to correct one error: eBay does not own PayPal (or vice versa). They split in 2015. Read about it here. Phil
  4. That thing is really geared down.
  5. 2018 Annual Meeting Registration & Seminar Schedule

    I'm from the Philadelphia area. I don't anticipate any real rowdiness like after the game since this is a daytime event ending near the Museum of Art. Philly does a lot of big events there and they know how to handle things. Plus, everybody is in such a good mood they'll probably be holding hands (well, maybe). On another subject, the Simeone Museum has a Brass Car Event on Saturday. They're bringing out some of their oldest machines and running them. Looks like a lot of fun. Phil
  6. Who Owns A Metz?

    The only VIN on the Metz is stamped on the engine. If the engine is original to the car, you can look up the year. A few photos will probably get an I.D. on your car, Metzman. Phil
  7. Metz Memories

    Someone posted a comment on my YouTube Metz video which is interesting: "As a kid I remember a relative , Clayton Holden, telling me he remembered Metz cars being test-driven, as part of their assembly process, across Waltham. When he was a kid he'd see Metz car chassis (no bodies yet) being driven across town, including up a hill. Besides being test driven, the Metzes were on their way to have bodies added." Phil
  8. A car guy in Vajenya's Governor's Mansion!

    Virginia has the best Antique Automobile plates. I wish our state had one like it.
  9. 2018 Annual Meeting Registration & Seminar Schedule

    There is a lot to see within 5 blocks of the hotel. I bring my thermal underwear. Phil
  10. I definitely like the small French cars. I'm currently working on a 1924 Citroen 5HP. I also restored a 1921 Quadrilette plus I have yet to restore a couple little Mochets! Phil
  11. Model 20 Differential

    Are you using that Corn Head Grease, David? I have some, but haven't figured out how to use it in the differential. That is, how much I should put in. Phil
  12. Forum Guys at Annual Meeting

    The computer on the pin really dates it!
  13. Did Maxwell Have their own tools? if so....

    Search eBay and you'll see quite a few Maxwell wrenches.
  14. How much longer will gasoline be in general use? Will that determine the real end of the (internal combustion) antique car hobby? Phil
  15. 1906 Model L Universal Joint

    I saw that Les Warren has reproduced a Maxwell univeral for the 2-cylinder models, but I'm not sure if it would fit my 1906 Model L. Since I've not yet started restoring it, I'm wondering if this is a part I should acquire. Often, these repro parts are offered for only a limited time. Phil
