  1. I agree with Keiser31, going back a bit further I grew up in the "its not for sale, I'm gonna restore it some day" era, 60's and 70's. Most of those cars have since rusted into the ground, friend called to offer me a 15 Ford in pieces said he had waited to long did I want it? I see people who have been hoarding for a long time and now reality has finally hit, trouble is no one wants project cars apart these days and we are loosing that part of our hobby willing to take something apart to see how it works. There are some really great project cars and lots of parts coming out of the old shed because the kids don't want it, yes I'm a bottom feeder and dumpster diver. John
  2. I would say 1925 or 1926 I'd be interested if you wish to sell.
  3. Thanks for the help John . I have found throughout the years this hobby requires patience and time. Plenty of the first, not so much the latter.
  4. Thank you all for the insight , they are 2 piece , attached is a picture of what I'm looking for.
  5. Thanks guys yes they are 18" and I've been told how scarce they are, but sometimes the blind dog does get the bone.
  6. Metal spare tire covers for a 1933 Lincoln wanted Thanks
  7. I have a pair that were originally intended for a 1947 Chrysler, plated by Lebrandy so you know they are first class if interested.
  8. Am looking for a set of metal tire covers for a 1933 Lincoln
  9. You might check with Jerome Hubert in Portland he fabricated quite a few high quality parts, also Ron Gosek of Vintage brass had carb parts. If you need phone numbers PM me. John Kelso
  10. Bernie as I read your post about the Prius group I had to chuckle. A friend of mine has a Prius parked between his 32 Lincoln and E Type Jaguar both V12's Says he has to drive the Prius to be able to afford to put gas in the other two, they average about 7 MPG. The sacrifices we make😀
  11. Two books I enjoyed were Vagabonds and Edsel the forgotten son of Henry Ford. None of us should be the same person we were in our past, we are all shaped by our past experiences. All history should be viewed taking into context the times
  12. Couldn't be any more difficult than this restoration, at least there are patterns.
  13. Post the question on the Lincoln section. There are several posts about the distributor and coils. Some knowledgeable Lincoln guys hang out there.
  14. If you looked closely he was moving the distributor cap as if a clip were loose. As we all know if the timing chain were broken it wouldn't have restarted. Gave me a chuckle too.
  15. Eclectic, I get bored after restoring a few of the same and need a new challenge. My two Grandfathers were like that with businesses, guess I was doomed.
  16. Toby Keith wrote a son for Clint Easwood's movie the Mule titled Don't Let The Old Man In. In it he asks "How old would you be if you didn't know when you were born" Some days I get awake and feel 16 again others I feel my age. I work in my shop accordingly.
  17. Yes I do. Send me an address and I'll send them. If not happy return them, if what you want send a check. Pm an address. Thanks John
  18. Looking for a Whizzer and any other motorized bicycle type for a restoration project for me and the granddaughter. Project or apart ok. Within a reasonable distance from south central Pennsylvania. Thank you John Kelso
