  1. Yes, the symbol of the buffalo was because K/F had intended to produce a front wheel drive car early on. The shape of the buffalo signifies that it has all "muscle" in the front I guess.This information is in the book, "The Last On Slot On Detroit"
  2. This pair of bezels were in with some Kaiser / Frazer parts. Arm lengths are 21" and 22" Can anyone tell if they fit either a K or F?

  5. Can anyone identify this electric wiper from the pictures as to what it may have been used on. Stamped on it are 'BOSCH Electric windshield wiper" 6V. Thanks for any help.
  6. My guess for this car would be either a 1947 / 1948 Frazer.
  7. Hi Ken, I have heard how good it looks from others. In the pictures it is very nice, I hope to meet you someday to get a look. You always seem to have the very nice stuff. John.
  8. I have a Western Auto spring shackle set with the part number S-4704. Can anyone identity? Thank you, John.
  9. Paul, I want to thank you once again for the helpful information. John
  10. Can anyone tell me what it does and what does it fit as to year and make? The hose fittings are for 5/8 hoses. Thank you.
  11. The part is 7 inches on one side 9 inches the other, 3/4 inch wide and the part number is 1378300. What is it for?:confused:
  12. My friend told me of the time years ago when he and his wife were traveling in and around Pitts. in a hard rain storm and their wipers broke. He had to stop the car and with some string he tied it to the wiper blade. One end of the string was fed through the drivers door window and the other end of the string through the passenger door window. So Ed would give the string a tug and Renee would relax and so forth. Ed only recalled having to continually keep saying, "Pull Renee, Pull Renee" all the way home.
  13. I like your story as I had gone through the same experience myself. At 74 years old I was given the remains of a 1918 Buick and I did not want to scrap it. I did have woodworking tools and a pile of dried walnut lumber and decoded to make a pickup. I live on a fixed income so there isn't a lot offunds to play with. Since the rear end gearing was gone I adapted a 1959 Ford 9 inch rear end to the 1918 Buick with open drive shaft and hydraulic brakes. I fabricated a seat and my wife upholstered it in red leather. After repairing the motor, installed new tires, got it to run we have enjoyed it the past 4 to 5 years. As for your fender clearance, with the rear axle in place measure the distance from the top of the rubber snubber that is on the axle up to the bottom of the frame and this will be when the tire will hit the fender. Knowing the diameter of the tire add few inches for clearance. Sorry, I think I should have said meters.
  14. Bleach. You are correct on the Avastin injections. At the time that my problem started they were conducting a test of the two medications and I got selected to be on the study program for 2 years. My left eye was my problem eye and I haven't had a shot in it for about 2 years now. The right eye has gotten over 30 shot . My schedule had been every 4 weeks but with the improvement I go every 6 to 7 weeks now. My close friend was getting treatment for his eyes because of his diabetes about 15 to 20 years ago and at that time they used lazier treatment and he almost went blind. How do you know about these injections, do you have someone in the family with this problem? When I first was getting started with treatment I meet a fellow from Australia and he mentioned that his Father -in-law was getting the same thing over there. Thank you for your message. John
  15. Well at 77 years old I had 2 favorite hobbies which I have enjoyed for years, then I discovered that I had developed macular degeneration. The worst part of that being double vision. I was afraid to try woodworking, which line do I cut on? Could not weld, sand or paint. Being quite bored I decided since I had this 1959 Ford Sedan which I had driven to work till my retirement and it being a very plain car and I had always wanted a woody so I said to myself make it into the woody you had always wanted. I found pictures of Station Wagons so I gave it a try. I even learned to steam bend wood and this is what I came up with in about 6 months working with one eye closed. I don't know if this qualifies for this forum. About my eyes through the years I have been getting injection, a total of 52, and my eyes have improved over 90%. In one of the photos there is my faithful dog"Woodie".
  16. Now if the bolt is broken a thread or 2 into the hole you will need to drill. First punch a mark as close to the center of the broken bolt as possible. Then take a small drill bit , about 1/8 and with a hand held electric drill start drilling. Keep in mind that you may need to angle the drilling to help keep it in the center. You might try to drill through the broken stud but it is not necessary. Now the hard part, you need to have some left hand drill bit in your collection of drill bit. I usually find these at yard sales or even flea markets. You might even try at a hardware store, good luck. You should start with a bit slightly larger than the 1/8 starter bit. After each time you slowly drill increase the size of you left hand drill bit and if luck is on your side a some point the bit will grab and actually screw the remains of the broken stud out. In any case don't run your drills at high speed, some bolts are grade 8 and will work harden making it difficult to penetrate the surface. The same thing will happen after a stud has a welded surface. I have been involved with these kind of things all my working life
  17. Check and make sure that the gas tank is vented. There has to be air going into the tank as you travel.
  18. I have no idea as to the car, but I will say that the camouflage paint job look real.
  19. Bob Call You were very close , but no cigar. This town is Brownsville, Pa. which is located 30 miles East of Washington on the famed Route 40. A new high level bridge for Route 40 was built in the 60s over the Monongahela River thus by passing Brownsville and the results of that can be seen, and this scene has happened in many other towns across these United States.
  20. The first photo was probably in the 30s. Can someone I.D. these cars? The second photo is like 65 years later, the same town, same street and same intersection. Can anyone guess this town in S.W. Penna.? That is the busy US Route 40 going through down town. About 1960 a bigger bridge was added and traffic was diverted from going through the now "ghost town" with empty stores.
  21. I have an 0ld poster that came from a Frazer dealership. It measures 34" x 43" and I've had it going on 40 years. The colors are bright and it appears to have never been displayed. Is there a market for something like this?:confused:
  22. Lets see, has a soft top and a large center of the dash instruments cluster so my guess is maybe a 1935 Dodge or Plymouth.
  23. Hi Dave, I am sorry but I have such difficulty whenever I try to look for certain pictures that I know are on this computer some where. In the mean time go on "Girls on Buicks" and look for the date 2/28/2010 on the post. There should be some earlier photos there. John
  24. Here is my wife's sister Joan behind the wheel of my 1918 Buick. Although she has no desire to drive it she has ridden many time with me. This Buick was in such a bad condition that the fellow I had known gave it to me rather then junk it. It took a lot of work, first I had to make a wooden body using walnut wood. I didn't have a rear axle so I adapted a 9 inch Ford from a 1959 Ford for the Buick. So now I have hydraulic brakes on it. I guess I can say that the rest of the drive line is all 1918 Buick. It is fun to drive but hard to steer, love it.
