  1. When Cords were first displayed at the New York Auto show, people were standing on the Chevrolet next to it to view the Cord. If only they didn't have the transmission problems. Cord restorers today say, once you get by the transmission it is just a restoration.
  2. Is it still out of reach? Yes, particularly when she is there alone.
  3. A number of years ago I bought a 36 Auburn that had one installed on the drivers floor board. I removed it and brought in the house. My wife took a shine to it and built a small box for it in such a way that it could be rung at it's full decibel rating. Now the ladies in our small town Post Office have a small school bell like the teacher has on her desk. One of the ladies doesn't like the sound of the bell, so she places it a distance away out of reach of the customers. One morning I go in to the Post office with the Bermuda bell, she is not behind the counter and her small bell is out of range. I gave it three of four hard pushes. The look on her face as she came around the corner was spectacular This was really funny. I am snickering as I write this. I will admit I had the bell in my car for about a week before my window of opportunity presented it's self. Oh BTW we are still friends.
  4. Jack, if you live rural at all , the beam is not what you want. Too much wild life. You will get weary of it going off all the time. It is amazing how many critters are out there. What you really want to know is who is coming down your drive and what are their intentions.
  5. Our Drive way is 1/5 mile long. Next to the black top there is a sensor that detects a metal mass as it passes within a near proximity. Currently this is used to actuate a old time semaphore. This system can also be used to alert us in the house of any and all vehicles that come down the drive.
  6. Body work on my 31 Auburn coupe, I just got more done than usual. It is what I should be doing right NOW.
  7. That may be said of that ugly orange rendition above, but the 810-812 Cord never left that impression on me.
  8. This pair of door handles came to me in a purchase of Auburn parts. With the help of an AACA member on this site they have been ID'd as 32 Buick. I had a key made for the locking handle and it works perfect. $150 for both handles. located in Prescott Wisconsin.

  10. That is way cool ! Something similar to old highway signs but smaller. Do those four eyelets hold on the backing plate? Those can be removed, new eyelets can be purchased. Guys that refurbish old porcelain sighs use them.
  11. In 1970 I was looking for a new car . I went info Midway Ford on University ave in St Paul. There was a very attractive Maverick coupe with a six on the show room floor. I almost put money down on it, but then thought I would go across the street and check out a Plymouth Duster it had a 340 in it. The Duster wasn't quite as good looking in my mind at the time, but woooooh a lot more fun. I bought the Duster !
  12. Th eBay seller doesn't know what it is either.
  13. Was that Vern Monroe in California?
  14. Personally, I would not be in favor of customizing an L29
