    Pontiac what?

    Right here on this forum would be a darn good place to start!
  2. I believe this one is aftermarket. Cool. Interesting too. But I think it was sold by an aftermarket supplier for use on any vehicle. Cheers!
  3. July 27, 1974. My wife Della and I in the back seat of the Kissel touring owned at that time by Joe Antrim in Dayton, Ohio. Today this same car is owned by AACA forum regular Ron Hausman. Our family's 23 Hupmobile touring lead this little parade to the reception, but since Dad didn't have any top saddles and couldn't therefor lower the top, it was decided that we should ride in Joe's Kissel. (He nearly always had that top down). So the brides maids rode in our Hupp. Also in the parade that day was Tom Phuel's Model T speedster (converted decades before), and Al Fisk's Rolls Royce
  4. Kanter Auto Products can probably supply everything. They're in HEMMINGS, etc.
  5. Wow, I just clicked on an episode on Youtube. Only watched a few minutes. But nearly every car featured was a Buick...all about 1956 models, including convertibles, etc. LOL
  6. Saddened by your loss. Brings back my own sad memories of the loss of my Dad, who was also an antique car guy in AACA for decades.
  7. Is the car located in the USA? If so, what part of the country?
  8. Wondering if that Plymouth roadster might have come from southern Ohio? There was a man here in the 60's-70's (when I was a kid in the AACA Southern Ohio Chapter) named Harold Eby who had a yellow Plymouth roadster. And Carl Pippenger in our club also had a 1931 Plymouth roadster, but it was red with black fenders. Ahh...the memories.
  9. At first I didn't notice the trailers under some of those cars....and wondered if those tires were bumpers for "bumper cars". It's hell to be old and blind!
  10. An interesting observation, I think, is my understanding that there are a number of states considering the creation of new taxes for electric vehicles, since taxes on gas and diesel are a primary method of funding road building and maintenance. I realize the necessity of this plan, yet I cannot help but appreciate the irony of it all. Government, civic leaders, environmentalists, activists, and others are working hard to convince us all to go to electric vehicles to save the environment. They have often spoken of tax breaks or other incentives to get folks to buy EV transportation
  11. Paul, I have just spent some hours reading that entire thread about that unrestored Franklin and it's history with its one-owner family. Marvelous story, and great reading pleasure. Offering my sincere thanks for you sharing that.
  12. Rusty is right. When you take a car to an event with an obvious part missing or damaged, helpful folks will start helping you to find one.
  13. What a cool trip. I cannot imagine having that much free time and budget when I was 30 years old, but good for Tebo! We can all do the journey vicariously with him. I used to drive a 30 Model A to work every day, year round, when I was about his age, come to think of it. It was an older restoration with incorrect upholstery and a roof which leaked, and 3rd rate paint job. But I loved it, and had a ball driving it in traffic, with people staring in wonder. I was a sheet metal worker at the time, and would sometimes put my hardhat on as I drove, so that people would not mistake me f
  14. Just call Coker. I've never had them balk at any customer service issues. Don't assume they won't help you. I will also say that I used to be a young service manager in a Goodyear tire store (decades ago), and replaced many, many tires under warranty. But the "banding" you referred to is really fairly common on radial tires. I wouldn't let that worry me. But I'll bet a dollar to a doughnut that Coker won't hesitate in replacing the tire with a bubble. What has happened is an inner layer of rubber has allowed air to seep through to the outer layer, where it was trapped and formed a
  15. Growing up as a kid in antique car clubs during the 50's, 60's, and early 70's, I was often called home from play just before dusk, to "go for a ride." Sometimes it was just my family in our antique car, sometimes with other car-loving families who lived nearby, or sometimes in our modern convertible cars (first a 1957 Bel Air convt, and later a 67 Impala convt). We cruised through the nearby rural countryside slowly, enjoying the scenery and waving at people we saw along the road. (I recall being amazed at how many lightening bugs I saw over farmer's fields). Inevitably we ended up at the roo
