  14. I have used powder coating on wire wheels - they sandblasted them and powder coated for $75 per wheel and a couple day turn around. also had a big frame done- $400. complete. I think it's great clean quick and fairly inexpensive
  15. I purchased a 1914 Locomobile and I am trying to find the original purchaser of the car. I have got back to 1920. it was purchased by a wealth family in NYC , in 1920 it was given to the chauffeur as a wedding present. I have found the chauffeurs name , but I am figuring that if you needed a license it may have an owner on the info. I have tried the ny city dmv , and they don't seem to have any info pre 1980 thanks- Mike
