  1. Thank you so much for these great photos of the beautiful cars. I have a fairly good amount of original photos of 1929-mid 30s Auburns and Cords (with L-29s) from Cliff Henderson, who ran the National Air Races from 29-39. He used a great many Cords and Auburns, and some "look like' Duesenbergs? He was good friends with E.L. Cord.I admit it is pretty hard for me to tell them apart from certain angles. Any tips or tricks?
  2. Hi Dave: I sent you an email, with a Southern CA contact. And Thanks, Terry, for the kind words. Getting to know you, Hardman, and many of the other collectors, were some of the the most enjoyable memories of a lifetime of collecting.
  3. Been buying/selling antique aircraft & parts, all over the World, for 49 years. Look up memaerobilia.com for contact info. May be able to help you, once I know what you have there
  4. ID help would be appreciated..I am in process of trying to ID old family photos, to pass on family history to my adult son. This is my great uncle. and the license plate is possibly 1923 or 1928? Wow! no shortage of headroom in this vehicle... (I am guessing that he may be on the way to add air to the left front tire)
  5. Looking to buy QUANTITIES of Bethlehem spark plugs. Seeking the type that has approx 1" diameter black micarta top. Some have holes through micarta, or through bottom of metal body, at hex. Has a large circular electrode that almost fills entire bottom, except for small gap, all around, to rim

  7. Hi Bob; That answer and Dad's original old negs and photos would fill a book. His first love was any type of racing car, boat plane. He loved the lines of classic cars, and when they were just 15-20 year old "old cars" that few people wanted. He restyled and re-engined a fair amount of them, into exotic show cars. He also did some extraordinary rare and unusual hydroplane race boats in all classes. When I joined him in 1969, we were strongly into vintage aircraft, engines and parts and had the shop building, in the Bronx, piled to the ceiling with antique planes, engines and parts,, nearl
  8. Then there are so many pages with photos and specs of all the cars, with tables and photo groups for numerous different body styles and price ranges, with VERY detailed specs down to carbs and mags and much more, in the multi-page tables. It is a bit mind-boggling to see how long the chart for Cars that cost More than $3,000, in 1914!
  9. No ads in these, just many hundreds of photos, lists, charts and detail reports. Example, one reason i love these, are the many race reports. have you ever seen details and photos like these? practically lap by lap,minute by minute, details of tires, oil, mechanical problems, pit problems etc for each car and driver. here is a small part of multi-page report on the 1914 American Grand Prix, at Santa Monica, only a few days after the race. It featured Eddie Rickenbacker,Barney Oldfield, Ralph DePalma, and many others in Mercedes, Mercers, Sunbeam, Mason-Duesenberg, Isotta Fraschini,
  10. Hi Dave; Your question (and sharp observation) makes me smile It is one of a half dozen original negatives I have, of a beautiful Duesenberg, that came to my Dad's shop, Raceway Garage. on a side street, in The Bronx NY, in the early 1950s. Dad worked on restorations and even "hotrodding' of some of the old cars back then, and had many famous and wealthy customers. Everything from scratch-built midget and sprint racing cars, US and European exotic sports racing cars, and full customs. Early Ferraris, Bugatti, Auburns, Grand Prix cars, including pre-war Adler, Mercedes gull-wing, He e
  11. For the advanced collector and Connoisseur, and bibliophile. This Extremely rare collection of bound original weekly issues of “The Automobile” were jointly owned by Alec Ulmann and Austin Clarke, several decades ago. When Alec passed on, in 1986, I purshased them, from his wife, Mary, in a private sale. There are four bound volumes per year, covering all of 1914 through 1917, Each of the 16 bound volumes have approx 650-700 pages, Each two volume set includes some 1200-1300 lllus pages, and every six months has an enormous 8 page index. The indexes pages are three columns of some 120 li
  12. Body, frame, shell, set-up etc All Look VERY different between photos 1 and 2
  13. Does anyone know why the Auburn Cord Duesenberg webpage seems to be down? For past week, my link to it gets a (404 error message) saying the page does not exist.
