  1. In the pic of the front seat you can clearly see the power window button on the passenger door....
  2. That's one of the great advantages of the AACA forum. A guy buys a '52 Plymouth Cranbrook that he doesn't know much about so he comes here asking questions and he gets a lot of useful info from other guys including one who owns the exact same car that he has. That's pretty cool. How about a pic of yours?
  3. They're great cars. I bought one several years ago which was also in Mass. and had it shipped here. I had it painted the same bronze color and eventually traded it straight across for a newly restored '30 Model A with a rumble seat....
  4. Welcome to the site but just to let you know that most of the guys here are into original cars and not restomods. You might want to check out JalopyJournal.com and then click on the HAMB (Hokey A$$ Message Board) to connect with some of those guys. Good luck with your Buick....
  5. Why don't you go to a Lexus site and ask them?
  6. At least there aren't any empty beer cans lying around....
  7. He looks like a cool guy. MY condolences on your loss. May he rest in peace....
  8. "I hope we beat the St. Louis Cardinals tonight at Three Rivers Stadium" said the Pittsburgh Pirate. (I know, that stunk.)
  9. Courtesy of The Old Motor.... We are looking at what may be the only good images that have survived of John E. Meyer’s attractive and unique J.E.M. “Special” “Camping Phaeton.” Meyer, whose address is on the back of these photos, apparently lived or worked at 42 West 39th St in Midtown Manhattan in New York City. The “Standard Catalog of American Cars” lists the J.E.M. Model “A” without a photo as being “built in 1922” and included in the 1923 “Automobile Reference Manual.” That publication lists it as having a “128 w.b.” chassis powered by a “six-cylinder Continental model 7R engine” and was a “two/four passenger” car with a selling price of “$2500.” After a brief search for other photos, a patent, or additional information about this vehicle, nothing more was found. However, a 1902 patent was uncovered granted to a John E. Meyer of NYC for a wine cooler. We assume this was a one-of-one Meyer might have had built to his specifications and then tried to patent its features with hopes cashing in on his ideas and producing and selling more of these “Camping Phaetons.” With the “Good Roads Movement”going on simultaneously as this car was constructed, auto camping and touring was a very popular activity at the time.
  10. I asked my surgeon about that and she said that this newest type of mesh never needs to be replaced. In case anyone is interested it's called Ventralex and it has polypropylene on one side and gore on the other. My brother lives in the Orlando area and he said there's a lot of TV commercials there from lawyers who are looking for clients who have had to have the mesh removed. Hopefully I won't have any problems with mine. Here's some more info on it including a short video.... https://www.crbard.com/Davol/en-US/products/Ventralex-ST-Hernia-Patch
  11. Thanks for the kind words and warnings. On the container it says to take one pill every 4 hours for 5 days but I'll be damned if I'm going to get up in the middle of the night to take one because if I'm sound asleep I'm obviously not going to be feeling any pain. I promised my wife that I wouldn't drive at all this week including one extra day after the pills are gone so I should be back on the road next Tuesday. As far as becoming addicted, when they're gone they're gone and I know that the doctor won't give me any refills so I'm not worried about it. In November 1981 when I was 29 I quit smoking and drinking cold turkey on the same day after a good friend of mine killed a 21 year old woman while driving drunk so I'm not concerned with freaking out or climbing the walls when I'm out of them. Thanks again for your concern....
  12. I'm recovering nicely from the hernia surgery that I had last Friday and the doctor gave me a prescription for 30 Oxycodone pills so I'm not feeling any pain right now....
