  1. I agree that the 32 v-16 convertible coupe headed to RM Ariz should price out about $325k to $400k, all in. The RM blog with the description, however suggests a value of $750k to $850k. Seems way over market for a short wheelbase (as were conv cpes) and the same standard Fisher body used by the 8s and 12s. 32's are great cars and they drive much better than the 30/31s with their Johnson carbs and more truck like suspension. However, many people love the big headlights, flat radiators, and stone guards on the earlier cars.
  2. I don't think that CCCA needs to add more marginal vehicles. It will add very few new members as many of these cars are owned by existing members. It will further dilute the club and the values for which it once stood. There are already plenty of clubs for mediocre cars. Trying to be all things for all people leaves you being nothing special for anyone. Reference the prior right on comments about the CLC. Sure Caravans cost money. But they don't cost any more than nice vacations. Who wants to ship their car across the country and back, take a week off from work

  4. Anyone willing to give me directions for tightening up loose steering box on 31 LaSalle? Thank you Johnny
  5. Well, here's a bit of an opposing view. Sometimes Clubs do place too much attention on expenses. But those that do not go out of operation. I don't like National Clubs "making money" off tours. However, these tours require considerable effort to put together and I deeply appreciate the energy volunteers put in. Tours have become more expensive than they were in the good old 60's, 70's or even 80's, but so has everything else. I bought my first home in the mid 60's for ten grand. When folks take time off from work and ship their cars across the country for a tour, they real
  6. John, Thank you very much. Do you know if the cowl and body parts were made during the restoration or were they original to this particular car? I appreciate your help. Johnny
  7. Was this an original configuration? Did this particular car come with this style body? Is the body original or remake? Are there restoration photos available? Thank you. Johnny

    34B oil pressure

    Thanks. Car performed quite well on a 1500 mile trip. Then parked for two years. Once I primed the pump, it has continued to do perfectly. Fun and dependable car. Recently obtained a pretty elaborate sales piece that had a factory price sheet inside. Surprised to see price at $5k.

    Is this a Mercer

    I am no expert on Mercer racing. I do have some Spencer Wishart trophies. I believe that he won in a Mercer car before he was hired by Mercer. Not sure what year car he drove in that first Ohio race. Maybe it was something other than the latest model.

    Looks a lot like Spencer Wishart who started driving for Mercer in 1912
  11. Wanted to buy, original radiator mascots in good condition. Prefer items from less well known or high quality vehicles. jcrow22006@aol.com Thank you....
  12. Yes, two sided whites. I have lots of earlier photos of various American automobiles when new, and many have two sided white walls.
  13. Just looking through my old photos. Thought someone may like this one. Prices are where the license plate goes. All around $11,000. A few Pierces in the background..... Johnny
