  4. One of my friends was in the USA last year and told me (with some photos) that the Car Show, Chasing Classic cars guy Wayne Carini won a prize with his Stutz 1917/18 Does anyone have any more information and is there a link to view this show. I am in the UK and we haven't had the latest series shown here Thanks
  5. what age car / engine please?
  6. is Cadmium plating what you are looking for?
  7. You can obtain all the information about this plate if you contact penndot www.dmv.state.pa.us and pay a fee
  8. Does anyone have a picture of the type of windscreen wiper that would be fitted to my 1917 Roadster please? All I have right now is a hole through the top rail of the screen I guess you guys in sunnier climates don't need such things, but I am in the UK where it rains quite a lot! Thanks
  9. where are you based? I would walk into a good bearing shop and get them to match it up
  10. You are lucky, the cars that follow me home have a blue light on top!
  11. Dear All I am trying to carry out some research - any information would be useful please. Attached to the engine side of the wooden bulkhead on my 1917 Stutz Roadster is a metal plate It reads: SPECIAL NUMBER PLATE S 31833 PA. DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE PENNSYLVANIA Does anyone know what this plate is for please, or when it was issued? My car is now in the UK and came to the UK from Italy. I don't have very much history of the car before it went to Italy. However, from another plate (or to be precise, a rally plaque), attached this time to the drivers side of the bulkhead, I know the car was at some time in Dearborn. This plate says 'Greenfield Village, Dearborn, Michigan 1951, Veteran Motor Car Club of America'. Is this near the Henry Ford Foundation? Does anyone have a programme from this rally that might list a previous owner or some of the cars history please? Any information would be useful regarding either plate please Thank you, Regards Dave

  13. Thanks for all of the suggestions, I am thinking of using a template and then an airbrush to make sure there's only very little paint applied
  14. You are simply wrong, the oil available back then (1930's and 1940's and likely 1920's to 1950's) in the UK was that bad. Dealers sold replacement engines (just after the 2nd world war) for around £10 (held as stock items) - you could drop your car off on the way to work and drive home with a replacement engine fitted. This was (in the UK) as standard as having new brakes fitted today. I have first hand experiance of this. Oil was very poor quality back then and simply did not stay in grade, it was very thick when you poured it in (in cold weather you had to heat the can to get it out) a few 1000 miles later the oil was like water. Of course all oil available today is much better for your engine today than it was back then (assuming you put in the correct grade of oil), BUT some MODERN ADDITIVES eat phospher bronze bearings and will cause roller bearings to slide and damage the bearings As you say, you know little about England, I am really interested to hear if things were different in the USA
