  1. This is a 1909 Durocar which was another automobile that was manufactured in Los Angeles between 1907 and 1911. This car had a two cylinder engine and a two speed planetary transmission and in 1910 they also made a four. This photo was taken in San Diego during 1909.

  2. And our last garage of the day...... a very professional Packard Dealer shop doing a valve job on a 1930-31 model. One man is working on the valve seats, the other is grinding the valves on a valve grinder. The workbench behind them has a cylinder boring bar on it which makes it a very well equipped shop. This could possibly be a factory service photo.

  3. Today I am going to do some garages. Let's start with Thompson Motor Service, who in addition to general repairing also were blacksmiths and did welding. This is generally where the first mechanical repairs were preformed early on, at the village blacksmith shop.

  4. Hey T-Head, how about a contest for the most people in a car? Here's a load of folks in a Great Arrow, Saurer truck and White Steamer. The first two were taken in Fairbanks and the third one in Valdez.

    Nancy.... They are wonderful, thanks for sending them and please send more.

  5. This photograph is another racer I would like to identify. The photo was taken in the San Diego area and I believe that it maybe a twenties desert racer. It looks like a production car turned into a racer but I cannot place it. It could have also been run at Pikes Peak.

    You may know what it is based on the lettering on the hood which appears to read ...... 6-66 special.

  6. If you are of that mind it might be the time for a beer. At the left is a refrigerated semi, possibly pulled by a mid 30's IHC. The center truck I believe is also an IHC and it is from Labatt's Winnipeg Branch. The last truck according to Fotofan is a huge Sterling, it was loaded with two tanks that were going to a brewery in Wisconsin.
