  1. That is a lovely steamer. Nice work there.
  2. I really liked the angular styling of these (P)Imperials since their debut. Here is the black beauty I bought for not much money in 2014. It"s a very nice driving, comfortable and quiet riding automobile.
  3. Here in Edmonton, Alberta "The Freeman Company" - Alberta distributors for Hudson and later Essex and Terraplane opened in 1912 and eventually ended up at this location 1933 until it's demise in 1939. In 1975 Bill Comrie's "Big Brick Warehouse" moved into this building, it's now called "The Brick" and has 135 stores across Canada. Pictures from back then and just a few hours ago.
  4. That looks like a great car at a nice price, not something you will see too often.
  5. We had this issue with our 1958 Olds 98, rebuilt the entire system and had good pedal but the car didn't stop well. We had the modern brake lining replaced with a softer material and it works fine now. It took u$ a long time to nail the problem down. All brake linings are not created equal.
  6. Excellent advice. Often, you can pull the dipstick and it will be clean oil, that doesn't tell the story of what lies below. I like to pull the pan and clean it every few years on the older cars without oil filters.
  7. Might want to contact the Kokomo Automotive Museum. Home to the Haynes.
  8. Here is our 1915 Ford and my friends' 1911 Cadillac out for a recent fall run, not many leaves left on the trees here in Alberta. The temperature was fine but heading into a very stiff breeze it took all 20 horses to keep the 'T' movin' , fortunately we had the tops down for aerodynamic purposes.
  9. It may not work for your application but one of my car buddies had billet aluminum rods for his 1932 Packard made by R & R Racing Products in Florida. They are a thing of beauty, too bad they are hidden inside the engine. (Photo is off their website)
  10. There were some really interesting cars in the sale, many in the multi-cylinder category. If I had more $$ I would be happy with this 1930 Lincoln Town sedan at $51,000.
  11. I didn't find too many actual parts, especially since we fly in and suitcase space is limited but made great contacts that should work out for me. There was an interesting teens/twenties exhaust heater but it was made largely of cast iron, probably would have prompted a closer look at customs I would think.
  12. View from behind the dash of my 1930 Hudson 8, testing out the new cork clutch this week. Smoooth.
  13. Just my opinion but it doesn't get much better than the '33 Auburn if you're talking attractive cars. Art with wheels.
  14. Dad and I are ready to go, last time we went in 2012 this 1950 Kaiser Vagabond followed us home to Alberta. This was my first trip to Hershey. Old car heaven folks.
