  1. Thank you Bob for those links, Over here in Australia we are also very concerned about the proper management and future of our automotive history. I have forwarded those links on to colleagues and friends here who will be most interested as we are commencing discussions about how to assist and guide collectors, researchers and curators here. We had hoped to set-up a more formal discussion of the topic later this year at our Automotive Historians Australia gathering but Covid has put play to that for now. Jenny
  2. Ply33 and Owen, Have just spoken with the engine rebuilder and passed on all your comments which he and I are very grateful for, appreciate you both taking the time to respond to my query. Can't help thinking how much easier sharing information and ideas is in our hobby now, when we got the Nash in 1968 we had to wait anxiously for air mail letters and parts parcels for 3-6 weeks from fellow Nash restorers and antique car enthusiasts, now it's a matter of hours!

  3. Thanks Owen, The engine rebuilder we are using is very cautious, hence my query on the Forum. He has not done many engines like our Straight 8 Nash before though he is widely respected for his skills with post WW2 engines.

Will see him today and discuss your comment. cheers Old28

  5. The Vintage Motor Club in Australia added a 1928 Oldsmobile tourer to its online featured cars gallery this week, I thought Olds enthusiasts might like to see it as this car is quite well know in New South Wales vintage car circles having been a multi-award winning 1970s restoration and for the last 40 years a successful vintage rally and family touring car: 1928 Oldsmobile F-28 Tourer - Vintage Motor Club, NSW, Australia Old28
  6. There's a period photo online from one of our public libraries showing an nice tourer. The notes say it is a Woman with her new Maxwell car and dog, Shoalhaven, ca. 1920 / photographer Cyrus S. Moss Woman with her new Maxwell car and dog, Shoalhaven, ca. 1920 / photographer Cyrus S. Moss | Flickr - Photo Sharing! I have been trying to identify the year and model of the vehicle and would appreciate help with this one as I am perplexed by it - the slanted bonnet louvres - do not appear on the photos of Maxwells I've looked at the nickel radiator surround - again most of the period ph

  10. HI, I've posted this over on the Oldmosbile Forum but then noticed this discussion and hoped you guys wouldn't mind me running it here too. Because I have a vintage Oldsmobile a fellow restorer gave me this older car badge some years ago. See attached image. The badge is red enamel on brass, the shield part is 2-1/2 x 3-1/4 ins. , the words "The Oldsmobile Club are on a white enamel stripe. On the back is stamped the number '16' I would like to know where, when and what was "The Oldsmobile Club" that it was for. Anybody know more about it? Regards Old28 from Australia
