  1. I am going to look at a Model 81 Pierce. I have seen some references to the Model 80 and 81 on this forum . Can some of the very knowledgeable tell me the good, bad ,and ugly of these cars and what is important to look for. Ideally I would like to have the larger model Pierce but there are some budget limitations. Thank you
  2. I am looking for a 1920 to 1931 . Older restoration, neglected, partly restored, apart. Wish to use as driver. Prefer roadster but any open car considered. Not interested in show car. Any help appreciated. Please PM or call John Kelso seven one seven four eight five 4344.
  3. Looking for a complete jack assembly for a 1960 Ford. Thanks
  4. Sent a package to my son in Baltimore, 100 miles away, 2 weeks and he still doesn't have it. What has happened to our USPS?
  5. Funny thing I live in a rural area of Pennsylvania and we complain about the southerners moving in,guess we're all alike, Americans!
  6. I was there with my friend Carl Amsley of Stanley fame since there was a car and some parts in the sale. The car was bought by Geo. Staley and restored. I had made contact with him after the sale and subsequently did some work for him on the car. I had been there earlier and bought the remains of a 1927 Boattail . He had responded to an ad I had placed in Hemmings. On the advise of a few people I ignored the post card, I was told he'll lead you along and you will not be able to buy anything. After the second post card I responded, about a week later the phone rang at 4 AM and it was A K MIller, we talked for quite a while and came to an arrangement. A week later we were on the road, my wife and 3 kids in tow(truck bed was fitted for kids, our youngest was 1). We arrived late afternoon and met the Millers. AK suggested we disconnect the trailer and leave it, would be easier for us to get around. Next morning when we returned the trailer was stacked full of used roofing that we had to unload at another location,Mother(as he called his wife) my wife and me. After Mrs Miller fixed lunch AK then handed she and I shovels and be began moving dirt from in front of the shed where the chassis was stored. The story continued but to long for this forum, we later visited them several times at there home in New Jersey. This was late 70's. As a side note my wife and kids remind me sometimes how we never took a vacation unless there was a trailer following.
  7. Is there an extra seat on that plane, I'll bring the 2 day old shine !
  8. John you might get better results using the LZOC for this question. John
  9. There is a lot of "All time" before 1950 in the car world!
  10. That's me standing in the middle. Coming from a small town in the country we dreamed of a Soap Box Derby. The Lions Club started this but it never went as far as anything Alsancle was involved in. It was run on the steepest street in town and as I recall quite well attended. Must have been early 50's, Sure miss those two guys.
  11. If that is not him, I think George Gagle from Joplin, Mo. may have had something to do with it.
  12. When we left home yesterday in our 1924 Lincoln touring(side curtains installed) it was 35 degrees and the car loved it . What a beautiful drive this time of year through the mountains,only topped off by the show itself. One of the best I have ever attended with so many great cars and people. All the people involved deserve a "well done" Thank you! As a side note from a life long resident,don't ever try to guess what our weather might be this time of year😉
  13. Have done London to Brighton twice, both in steam. It is not a scam, the preparation and expense to make it happen is greater than Hershey. The thrill of it ,once you see and hear all those ancient machines makes the weather no matter how bad disappear. Oldcarfudd, go for it!
  14. George I knew Jeff and sold him the Keen he had, he also got about all the Brooks parts I had so some of yours may have passed through my hands. The Brooks I had went to Australia. Best of luck with yours, once you get that mix of kerosene,smoke and steam oil in your blood it never goes away
  15. Can anyone point me in the direction of Auto Red Bug people. Need a bit of information. Thanks
  16. I am in need of a steering column or parts for a 1924 Red Bug, Thanks
  17. Yes that was Jim, it was a 1911 Model 71 most likely I remember an old friend would ask someone who started to talk Stanley's with him " You got a running Stanley or a talking Stanley" Haven't heard that in a long time, still makes me smile
  18. If they are 20's they are condenser cars. IMO not as exciting as a non condensing car
  19. Have done London to Brighton twice in steam cars a 1904 Grout and a 1901 Locomobile. An early Stanley would handle it with no problem.
