  1. https://nixonauctioneers.proxibid.com/Farm-Machinery-Implements/Antique-Farm-Machinery-Implements/Metz-22-Huckster/lotInformation/56892279#topoflot
  2. Really nice video. It is really great how you took the time to show all of the mechanicals and provided explanation where needed. It is really nice getting both the ride footage and the detailed chassis overview in the same video. Some of us really want to see everything to understand it better and you provided that. Looking forward to your next one.
  3. There are at least 50 Cartercars still around (not all in running condition though). The three cars above are all really nice examples. It must be a big year for Cartercars - at least 6 have already been sold this year and at least 2 others will be offered for sale/auction later this year.
  4. It would be great to see some more photos from the trip and the Metz Gathering.
  5. The friction drive patents are interesting. In another example of how government works, the Patent Office issued a friction drive transmission patent to both Carter and Lambert on the same day in 1904: https://patents.google.com/patent/US761384A/en https://patents.google.com/patent/US761146A/en Not surprisingly, lawsuits and counter suits ensued between Cartercar and Lambert. The Lambert patent primarily focused on the friction disc and wheel surfaces, in particular the use of aluminum on the friction disc, while the Carter patent focused more on the complete drive setup.
  6. Thanks for posting it. The 1909-1911 Metz Plan Car had a two cylinder motor.
  7. I'd like to know more about the Canadian fender differences. Are there any other pictures? When did the unique fenders start - at the beginning of Canadian serial numbers in 1913? (were they really making their own fenders then?)
  8. The letter has this quote: "Therefore, the Museum cannot agree to allowing the Club to advertise its displays and attempt to divert customers away from the Museum. " I really hope that there is no agreement in place that limits the real AACA from having its own museum if it wants to! If the Museum wants to be the AACA's museum it should have merged back in instead of declaring its independence.
  9. Yes, I'd be interested in cataloging them (and also have a 1924 T). I'll send you an email.
