  1. Don Peterson was definitely an icon in the classic car world. I was always impressed by the fact that he believed in driving his cars, not having them sit in a garage somewhere only to be hauled around in an enclosed trailer. He seemed like someone who was friendly, down to earth, and liked to have fun. He certainly lead a full and interesting life, and the antique and classic car world will miss him. My condolences to West and the rest of the Peterson family.
  2. Mike, I saw your post about looking for rims for your fire truck. I can remember fixing many of these decades ago when I worked in a truck stop while I was in high school (always inflated them in a cage). I don't know where you're located, but there is a place near me that's been doing truck tire service for many, many years. They might have some of the old style rims you need, although shipping would probably hurt if you're far away, but just thought I would pass this along in case you want to give them a try. Weaver's Tire Service 1124 Division Hwy, Ephrata, PA 17522 (717) 733-8775
  3. In case anyone wants to do something different next year to celebrate the 4th of July, here's something different: Old Cars Launched Off Cliff in Alaska Town's Unusual July Fourth Tradition (msn.com)
  4. Yes, the original copies are selling for a lot more, as they sold out years ago. His daughter is selling the reprinted copy.
  5. I didn't want this to get lost in the topic "Automotive Learning Resources", so I started this new one. Both Wayne Sheldon and Restorer32 recommended Harold Sharon's book "Understanding Your Brass Car" so I tried to locate a copy, but had no luck with eBay or some other on line sources I checked, but I did manage to track down a source. It turns out the book was reprinted and is being sold by his daughter. If anyone would like a copy, his daughter sells them for 25.00 plus 4.00 for Media Mail postage in the U.S. To order a copy just send a check for the total to: Melanie Sharon 93 Curtis Road Glastonbury CT 06033 Hope this helps if anyone is looking for a copy. I thought since I did the legwork I would pass this along.
  6. Based on this obituary, sadly it looks like Mr. Yeska has passed away. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/mcall/obituary.aspx?n=henry-yeska&pid=171051944&fhid=9570
  7. Hello All, I stumbled across this Plymouth taillight lens at a flea market this weekend. If someone knows the year/model, please let me know. It was just too neat looking to pass up. Thanks !
  8. Thanks for taking the time to check your Olds. I appreciate it.
  9. While digging through more boxes of stuff accumulated over many years, I came upon another item that I bought at a flea market or yard sale years ago, not knowing what vehicle it belongs in, but figuring someone out there might need it. Does anyone know what year, make, model the ashtray in the attached photos belongs in. I want to move things along that I don't need and get them to someone who does. Thanks in advance for the help.
  10. In reading through this thread I noticed discussion of the old AACA meets prior to Hershey. I believe this plate was from the last annual meet held in Pottstown, PA, which, as you can see, was in 1954.
  11. Like I'm sure many of you are doing because of Covid and the winter weather, I've been digging through boxes in the basement trying to clean up and straighten up. I came across this oil filler that came off of some sort of engine. I bought it at a flea market a while back and just came across it in the basement today. I thought it was interesting because of the brass lid with instructions to use only Castrol F or Single Shell oil. If anyone can identify the engine it belongs on that would be great. Thanks
  12. Here's the link to the Craigslist post: 1971 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow - cars & trucks - by owner - vehicle... (craigslist.org)
  13. Great to see you were able to get the springs made. Please let us know the name of the company that was able to do this for you.
  14. Thanks TexRiv_63 and TerryB for posting the photos of the Monometers and the catalog pages. Learned quite a bit from the photos and reading the text in the catalog. I never knew they made a remote dash mounted model. I've never seen one and would imagine that they are pretty rare. I'm sure someone out there has seen one before, and maybe even owns a car with one installed in it.
  15. rjp, Your car would have had the winged radiator cap. A Motometer was an accessory that could be added to just about any car back then. You can find them on ebay just about any time, you just need to find the correct one for your car. Motometer did sell a set of "wings" that went with the Motometer if you wanted to add them, but they don't look like the wings on the original Chrysler radiator cap that would have been on your car.
