  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

  3. 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.

  4. 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😉
