  1. I recognize Mr. Michael Hoegl in the 1913 Benz WB. Wonderful gentleman. Amazing car. Tom
  2. He was a truly gentle person. A really knowledgeable guy on technology and well-grounded in physics. I always looked for - and liked seeing - his byline. Please pass along to all our Digger friends that his Yank friends are grieving.
  3. Sheri and I look forward to seeing you and Lynn.
  4. My youngest daughter - when she was small - called it the 'bunker seat'. Taking her and her friends to the ice cream stand in the bunker seat on a hot summer evening with the lightning bugs putting on their show and smell of freshly mown grass is sublime. Them waving at all passers - the passing drivers mostly waving back. Good memories - good times.
  5. Can you send picture of the 32 horn and trumpets? 31-32 Radiator Cap , 32 Instrument Panel Decals ,’32 Special Sedan Body No. Tag ,31-32 Tail Light Assemblies and 32 bezel. Tom
  6. Edinmass, You made me smile about the LV luggage! I apologize for perpetuating gossip - I repeated what I was told - gossip. It's interesting how 'legends' start! It is making me think.... Do I like the bar lights? because they are more common? Maybe. The PAs are SO distinctive. I really liked that Cord though,and generally like Cords of the mid 30s - they look so clean but those big buckets... WOWZA! in the same vein, I just don't care for Bugattis. There is something about that grill that just doesn't 'zing' me. I like the Cadillacs a little more than Packards - a good friend pointed out that in his estimation, the Cadillac rear axle and wells are 'too far back but not so on the Packards'. I see what he means. Still. Your car is exceedingly lovely. I'm curious? what is the road illumination like compared to say a same year with 'conventional' lights? Seems to me that it may be a little lower illumination due to the increased width - but maybe too little to tell. That's too bad about the mascot. Tom
  7. While taking a fast stroll through car coral, I saw a Pierce Arrow ----- that had the headlamps not mounted in the fenders. Factory original. I've heard and read that was a very rare feature and only delivered to NY customers. It's simply a personal preference but I thought it was much 'prettier' than the fender install. Certainly the fender-installed lamps are absolutely distinctive but just not something I 'like'. That's OK. It occurred to me that it's a great thing - I'm glad not everyone likes what I do and appreciate that others like things I don't. I saw the car and looked it over carefully, amazed and thinking... " My goodness, they really do exist." Three PA experts mentioned that the 'legend' was that NY said it could be confused as two motorcycles running side-by-side and the oncoming driver might want to 'split the difference'. Regardless, a really handsome car. Not to far away - A Marmon 16.
  8. I think someone said it is a 420. The 'C' would have meant crawler which it is not. Looks re-painted as it should be mostly green with some yellow highlight. I see rear wheel weights. See if is in Texas. They sell farm equipment. They are out of KY but big here in the NE. Also try to reach out to the texas farm bureau - a local member might be able to steer you to the right folks. Good Luck and Best Wishes. Tom
  9. Tim, saw your car in Hemmings Classic car. Good looking.Tom
  10. Can someone point me to location to get a kingpin set for a 1929 series 75 Chrysler? also, can someone ( who has a parts catalog) tell me what other years/models may work? TIA, Tom
  11. Its the 1929 Chrysler. This only happens very rarely. When both tires hit a hard raised ridge, it occurs, like a railroad crossing perpendicular. Tire pressure is right on. Wheels are balanced. Tire wear proper - I have not yet checked caster. Wedges look OK - not cracked. King pin play seems reasonable. It is a straight axle, with leaf springs. Do most of you do your own caster measurement? I've never done it but it looks not too difficult.
  12. What are the causes of, and what are the inspection areas for 'death wobble'? Is there an order? of most likely to least? TIA, Tom
  13. Joe, Sounds great! mark us down! Tom and Sheri Roberts
  14. Is there a secret or at least an easy way to add a heavy oil ( say 140-160wt) to the transmission fill plug? located on the side of case ( same applies to differential hub) Thanks in advance
