  1. Hey, Thanks for all the kind words guys, they mean a lot. From Nebraska, Andrew
  2. So if one were to want to put on a car show in Nebraska how would you go about doing this? I would like to try and organize one for a non-profit organization and also for the Boy Scout troop that I am associated with and maybe for my old high school. So....saying that all of these possible candidates would be interested in a car show are there things that I have to do legally to have one i.e. insurence and the such?? It would be a lot of fun to try and put one together and I do believe that they would be well attended with the right amount of advertising. It anyone has any thoughts they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!! From Nebraska, Andrew.
  3. I believe that "Custom Cab" refers to the special chrome looking trim inside the cab of your truck. Hope this helps. Also try 1961 - 1966 F-100 & Larger F-Series Trucks - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums for more information on old 1960s Fords. From Nebraska, Andrew.
  4. Just looking to see how many people on here are of the younger generation of the old car hobby like me. How did you get started in the hobby? (Dad, Grandpa, Friend) How old were you when you bought your first old car? What cars are of greatest interest to you? (Brass, Pre-war, Post-war, Classic, Muscle) What are the old cars that you own? Here is a little about myself. I am 19 years old and have been collecting cars for 2 years. The person that got me started in the car hobby is my great grandfather. His name was Richard (Dick) Hornung of Cheney, Nebraska. Maybe some of you older folks knew him. He had a collection of every Ford Model T and A, plus a Cord and an old 1909 Buick Model 10 and others. I am not old enough to remember his collection as it was all sold in the 1980s to a collector in Colorado but I always have heard about it and because of that I took a liking to old cars. Over the last two years I have collected all the old cars I could. I really like the prewar cars and my first classic car was a 1928 Dodge Victory 6 4 door sedan. This car runs but needs an overhaul of the engine and brakes. Because I am always looking for old cars at a good price, I am not very particular when it comes to make or model, just as long as its old. The next old car that I purchased was a 1958 Ford Custom 300 4 door. This car is a lot of fun to drive and is one that I take to shows. The next old car that I added to the collection was a 1965 Ford F-250, and it is yet another one that's taken to shows and driven on a regular basis. The fourth classic added was a 1964 Ford F-100 Flareside. This truck is not running, but it will be a good restoration candidate someday. The next old car is actually owned by both me and my 15-year-old brother. We purchased this one about a month ago so it hasn't gone to any shows. It is a 1959 Edsel Ranger 4 Door Sedan. This car runs and drives great! The last car that I added to the collection was a 1948 Plymouth Deluxe Coupe. This car does not run, but with a little love will be on the road again shortly. This car was also purchased by my brother and I. I also collect tractors and implements, too. With these collections I hope to one day open a Classic Car and Tractor Museum. That was my great grandfathers dream, to open a museum, but money talks and that's what happened and he sold his great collection. I haven't been around long on this forum, but I want to say that it is full of very knowledgeable people. Thanks for reading, from Nebraska, home of Husker Football, Andrew.
  5. This is a very interseting thread. Very nice topic. Here is my families cars (mostly mine) but a few my brother and I both went in on together and one of my uncles. 1928 Dodge Victory 6 4 Door Sedan (mine) 1936 Plymouth 4 Door Sedan (uncles) 1948 Plymouth Deluxe Coupe (mine and brothers) 1958 Ford Custom 300 4 Door Sedan (mine) 1959 Edsel Ranger 4 Door Sedan (mine and brothers) 1964 Ford F-100 stepside (mine) 1965 Ford F250 (mine)
  6. I posted a thread last night that I purchased the car from my uncle. I love the feeling of buying an old car!! It will be a fun car and a great addition to the collection. Thanks for everything from Nebraska, Andrew.
  7. Well, after negotiating with my uncle we were able to come to a price and I am the proud new owner of the 1948 Plymouth Deluxe Coupe. I know that it will take a lot of time and money to get it back on the road but it is worth it to save another old car. I cannot wait to go and pick it up. I feel that half the adventure in buying an old car is going to get it. I also feel that it will be a great addition to the collection and I cannot wait to get the car back on the road and also take it to shows. I know all you fine people on this site are full of knowledge and I plan to use this forum as a resource in getting the car road worthy again. Thanks for all the help and information as it was greatly appreciated. From Nebraska, Andrew.
  8. My great uncle has a 1948 Plymouth that he is wanting to sell. The people who sold it to him said that the timing belt was broken. It turns out that the valves were stuck in the engine. Now the engine is stuck and all torn apart and he wants to sell it. The body is all straight and original and there is no damage that I could see. There is no rust on the body but the floor pans would need to be replaced. The glass is all good that I can tell. Also it would need new tires. The one downside to the car is the engine as it would take a lot to rebuild. What do you guys think? And what do you think a fair price would be? Here are some photos, the car is sitting in a shed and all dirty. Also does anyone have any info on these kind of cars? Thanks for everything from Nebraska, Andrew.<!-- google_ad_section_end --> <FIELDSET class=fieldset><LEGEND>Attached Thumbnails</LEGEND> </FIELDSET>

  10. About 2 weeks ago i was on ebay looking at all the old cars as usual and stumbled upon a classified add for a 1959 Edsel Ranger. Seeing as it was close to me I messaged the guy who had it for sale to call me to talk about the car. He called that very night and I set up a time for my dad, brother and I to go out and look at it the next day. Now when I get car buying fever I always try to find as much info on the car that I am interested in and I love any old car and if its a good deal I will always take a look and inquire about it. We drove out to the little town of Mead, Nebraska from Lincoln and looked at the car. Upon arrival the car looked very good to my standards and after asking lots of questions and driving it around my dad, brother and I were on our way home with our latest old car purchase. The car is great and cruises very nice. I am very proud of the latest purchase as is anyone who buys a new old car. On the way home I received many waves and thumbs up and even when i stopped for gas a guy who I didnt know at all stopped and we had a nice conversation about old cars. It goes to show that the people in the old car hobby are some of the most friendly people out there. Even on the interstate the truckers were honking there horns. It always puts a smile on my face when I see a smile on someones elses face when they see an old car. I am 19 and I have puchased 5 old cars so far. My little brother who is 15 was looking for an old car so we went in on the 1959 Edsel Ranger together. He was so proud of his purchase, telling all his friends and I know he cant wait to drive it. But that wont happen until I feel confident in his ability to drive a stick because I must protect my investment too. The 1959 Edsel Ranger 4 door sedan has a 292 V8 and 3 speed on the tree. It has 74000 miles and brand new tires. I have been driving it around everywhere showing it off as one should do when you have an old car. I hope you have enjoyed my little story and if you have anything to say please comment.

  12. Thanks a lot for all the info. It is greatly appreciated.
  13. John1918 - What does RHD Model stand for??? 1930 - I will get you pictures of the trunk. Its is steel and it folds out to make a small truck like bed.
  14. Thanks for the compliment. It didnt come with any of the tools but someday I hope to get a set. Yes that is a trunk on the back, It really adds a lot to the look of the car. I do not have an owners manual. I thought someone said that there were no owners manuals that came out for the car. This car will need an engine overhaul, brakes redone and it needs to be rewired. But other than those LITTLE things this car is in great condition. I bought this off of ebay out of Lees Summit Missouri. It was running when I brought it home, but now it is sitting in the garage waiting its turn. Post some photos of your car. Thanks from Nebraska, Andrew.
  15. How many on this site own a Dodge Brothers Victory 6??? Just thought i would try and find out who else on this forum has one. Tell us all what you have. Here is a photo of my 1928 Dodge Victory 6 four door sedan. Lets see yours!!!!! Thanks for everything, Andrew.
