  1. Its April 2 and sharing my only Duesy adventure, I got to sit in 4 or 5 of them and a Sliver Ghost when delivering a antique Chris Craft boat I sold Rick Carroll in the spring of 82. I was nervously shaking while walking from Duesy to Dusey. I didn't know who he was until i got there. I have the utmost respect to him, very courteous and down to earth to me. RIP Rick.
  2. inboard marine? may i use the photo 4 a antique marine engine whatisit website?
  3. Garage rent $3 or $13 a month? Those were the days!
  4. This is a 37 Plymouth I redid, It shows the ship horn button. I don't think it was stainless.
  5. if u find that panel anywhere with tach rpm numbers instead of mph numbers its from a postwar century wood speed boat up to 1949 i think.

  7. i picked this off ebay because it showed both modes of transportation. "Car" looks kinda odd to me, Is it a truck? thanks 4 looking.
  8. Bump about the "S & W" question which I found the answer to. S indicates the position of the thumb screw during summer operation, with the thumb screw in the W position indicates winter operation for a quicker battery recharge.

  9. Ransom Olds had ties to National Coil company starting in 1904. I wonder how old this contraption is? It weighs 46 lbs. and I believe its from a REO something, but could be aftermarket to other models. Note 3rd adjustable voltage brush lower left. Oil here 1/4 oz.! What does S W mean on the knobs? A thumbscrew makes the connection between one or the other. Lever advance / retard. thanks 4 looking.
