  1. I recently bought a 1901 CDO replica made by rollsmobile and need to by some simple parts. The the headlamps and tail lights are cheap plated brass looking metal and in very poor condition so I wondered if any one knows where I can purchase inexpensive replacements. Thanks Steve Simmons.
  2. OK so I bought my McLean 1903 CDO replica and now comes thescary part. How on earth am I going to get this wonderful car registered? Theheadlights are kerosene lamps and there aren’t any tail lights or breaklights. I have a CA title but don’t know if it is any good here in MA. I wantto use the car in parades and an occasional Sunday ride with the wife on the back roads ofNew England.<o:p></o:p> Does anyone have experience with this? <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> My guess is the car would not be registered like a normalcar but would have some kind of antique plate limiting where and how the car wouldbe used.<o:p></o:p> Any help would be greatly appreciated.<o:p></o:p> Thanks again to everyone that has been so helpful in mysearch for this great car that I have wanted to own since I was 14. (50 yrs.ago)<o:p></o:p> Steve<o:p></o:p>
  3. Thanks for the input and info but I think I would ratherfind a club that recognizes my 1903 McLean and 1901 Rollsmobile. We all can't affort the real thing and not sure I would be able to enjoy a real CDO since I would be worried about damaginging or it breaking down. <o:p> </o:p> Steve<o:p></o:p>
  4. Thanks to all that replied and gave encouragement.<o:p></o:p> Steve
  5. I have posted many questions and spoken to a lot of peopleon this forum have received very few answers to my questions and have a verydistinct feeling that I am seen as a second class person because I aminterested in CDO replicas and not the real thing that is way beyond mydisability budget. Does anyone else get that feeling from this forum or from aCDO club? I have been told that a 1958 Bliss is not a CDO. Very disheartening. <o:p></o:p>
  6. Thanks for the info. I have sent my email out asking about how and if I can become a member since I own Replicas only.
  7. To a man of limited income as myself; these are CDOs and considereda precious item. I have since purchased a McLean and a Rollsmobile both in verygood to excellent condition. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Have not read about a new company making replica's and wouldlike very much like to hear more from you about this company.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Steve<o:p></o:p> ussms1@charter.net<o:p></o:p>
  8. I have purchased 2 CDOs since I did that post so I guess I need to find out how to get rid of it. Can you please tell me how to join the CDO club? Thanks Steve Simmons ussms1@charter.net
  9. It is on its' way VIA Stateway Trucking. Due in Millville, MA on 4 /19/13. I am realy looking forward to that day.
  10. Have bought two CDOs. First 1903 Mclean replica in perfect condition and all original. Second 1901 Rollsmobile rebuilt in very good condition. Wanted to know if there are any CDO clubs that I might want to belong to. Thnaks Steve
  11. Has anyone heard of a 1901 Rollsmobile replica of a CDO madein Ft Lauderdale, FL?<o:p></o:p> I have a copy of a post card showing them all lined up infront of a factory. Thanks again Steve
  12. This was for sale when the owner was living in CT and didn't know if he really wanted to pay for the car to be shipped all the way to CA.
