    1933 Cadillac LaSalle 345C Town Coupe - $39500 (sonoma)

    I am seriously looking for something like this but it is well above my pay grade... A real beautiful car, Thank You for posting it!

    Film rental

    I got nailed once in a UAW plant.. My company at the time sold custom equipment, I was there to supervise the installation of a manufacturing line and the union did the installing. One day an electrician asked me to hand him a screwdriver and another guy wrote it up. I should have known better but I’m pretty sure it was like a fraternity hazing thing. It’s actually sad to know their BS (like that day) followed by striking caused them all to be unemployed, and we wonder why all these manufacturing jobs are moving to Asia???

    What have I got? Brass lamp info needed

    I was thinking that it could be for a very fancy oversized pedal car. I have a smaller scale brass headlight from a very early one but it’s not as detailed as your lamp is. Very nice lamp!

    Tex has it above, but if you want to, hear’s the best looking Cadillac emblem IMHO... it’s the 1915 era V8 badge with too many dots in its crown and white swans instead of black ducks.

    P.E. Erickson & Son, NY c.1915 Leaf Spring Lubricator

    It is, I mentioned that I changed it to a zerk a few posts earlier, that way I could use a modern grease gun which is a lot quicker than using a cup...

    Here’s mine, along with a tool you can pack with grease, an then use a hammer to force it into a plugged fitting, that way you can force the dirt and rust in as well... I don’t use it for that reason.

    Deep down in a box of Model A & T tools I have the exact same tool. Until now it was the only one I knew of... I put a modern zerk in when I use it and it does work well.

    Steering wheel and column

    I think VintageBen nailed it... I was thinking Chevrolet and the lock looks like what he describes

    Car on old shipwreck

    Thank you, and a warning for everyone else that once you try the link above you might just keep reading other related stories for quite some time... I know I did but enjoyed every minute

    Terry is dead on... I put a similar trunk into an Automobillia auction where it sold for $65.00 and I was pleased with that! Good luck, but without having a major automaker badge like Packard, Pierce Arrow, or Rolls Royce, I would not expect much.

    Maybe he meant 95% to go...

    The 29 seems like a good value in the low teens if it runs well, the other will sit for a long time at that price.

    Recognize this dash panel w/gauges? Automotive?

    Having a tachometer and hour meter I would guess some form of equipment or maybe a boat?? Either way a non road type of vehicle.

    help identify windshield frame teens? 20's?

    A dead on side view of the mounting will be helpful.

    Amusing vehicle advertisement

    It’s only amusing until you get excited about a purchase price... Trying to get buyers into a bidding war seems to be the new thing, but after feeling totally screwed by a frequent seller here I guarantee that I won’t ever look at another of his vehicles again, worse still is I tell everyone I know in the hobby about the experience and steer them away from such actions.
