  2. Thanks Steve. We are all devastated with the loss of Jack. "Larger than Life" does not begin to describe him. He was a True Classic. Additional information concerning Jack can be found here: John W. Rich Sr. Obituary: View John Rich's Obituary by Republican & Herald Thanks again for all the kind words of support from the car community. This is what this hobby is all about- camaraderie. Mark Lizewskie, Curator JWR Automobile Museum December 30, 2011 John W. Rich Sr., "Jack," "Boss," 86, of Key Largo, Fla., and formerly of Pottsville, passed away Friday evening at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia, surrounded by his family. Born in Minersville, July 3, 1925, he was a son of the late John B. and Helen S. Rich. Jack attended Stanton Military Academy, Stanton, Va., as well as Penn State University. He proudly served his country in the Army Air Corps. Jack will be remembered as CEO of the Reading Anthracite Company, Gilberton Coal Company, Jack Rich Inc., and as the founder of numerous other corporations. He was also former director of Keystone Financial as well as other public corporations. He was a longtime member of the Schuylkill Country Club, Ocean Reef Club, Pelican Bay and St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church, Pottsville. Jack loved vintage automobiles, boating and most of all, his large family. Jack was a cherished husband, father, grandfather, boss, colleague and friend. He will be deeply missed. In addition to his parents, Jack was preceded in death by his wife, Rose Teresa Rich, to whom he was married for more than 50 years, and two sisters, Gloria Rich and Bonnie Ryan. Jack is survived by his children, Judy Rich, Philadelphia, John Rich, Auburn, Betsy Rich, Shelburne, Vt., Brian and Valerie Rich, Orwigsburg, Jane and Scott Munro, Basalt, Colo., and Michael and Joannie Rich, Orwigsburg; grandchildren, Maura, Peter, Andrew, James, John Jr., Lia, Olivia, Isabel, Michael, Lauren, Brian Jr., Elle, William, Tessa, Lexi, Michael Jr. and Kyle; stepgrandchildren, Lauren and Jack; great-grandchildren, Levi and Peter Jr.; a very special friend of the family, Anna Butcavage. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at noon Wednesday in St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church, Pottsville, with the Monsignor Edward J. O'Connor as celebrant. A viewing will also be held from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in the church. Interment will follow in Our Lady of Calvary Cemetery, Pottsville. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter, 225 City Ave., Suite 104, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004. Lord-Bixler Funeral Home Inc., Pottsville, is in charge of arrangements.
  3. Looking for a rear axle hubcap for a 1927 Pierce-Arrow Series 80. Also looking for the rear hood hinge pivot for the same car. This is an original unrestored auto so condition does not need to be perfect. Thanks, Mark
  4. Thanks for that bit of information. Do you have any contact information for him?
  5. A friend needs an oil pump for a 1926 International with a four-cylinder Lycoming engine. The engine number is CT36259, the IHC part #23228V, and the Lycoming/Manufacturer's number is C-7440-B. The old housing literally just fell apart! Thanks, Mark
  6. Alpha Romeo...If you can't spell it, you're not a fan, and you probably don't even own it.
  7. This is our car: JWR Automobile Museum | 2 Eleanor Ave. Frackville, PA 17931 | Phone: 570-874-2822 | Fax: 570-874-2026
  8. I have no connection to these people, but have had super results! I buy the concentrated jugs, then mix it myself. Pour in in the block, and just let it sit for a few days or even a week or two, depending on the severity. For great rust removal Safest Rust Remover
  9. The car in the picture is in a N.J. collection.
  10. I'm going with Spohn as well. What they did to a Veritas was criminal! Most of these customs were created for U.S. Armed servicemen stationed in Germany.
  11. Bob, I stand corrected. Our car was imported into NY by the USA branch. There is an additional chassis plate (with Renault Freres on it) for the "USA, Colonies, and Cuba" cars on our car, hence my confusion.
  12. Bob, I'm not sure about your statement. Our 1914 is clearly using Freres on the chassis plate. I'll have to wait when I'm back in the shop the see about the hubcaps and also the literature...
  13. Nice find! It looks too dainty for Brass Era, so maybe 20s or 30s? I have some literature for our 1914 Renault, but not a tool list.
  14. Most parts are relatively easy to get; prices are relative. Defintely a worth-while car!
