    1912 Buick Model 35 Touring

    No mention of the price? I had one some years back and still have what I think is an original tail light somewhere...........

    14,000 Spark Plugs For Sale!!!!

    Do you still have the plugs? I have just found this advert and got in touch with my friend, Tom Green who has a plug business specialising for our hobby, he has tried calling you, but the number didn't seem to work. So, can you please email him on admin@gsparkplug.com and let him know if they are still for sale? All the best, Mike

    Alex Miller & his Stutz Cars

    It's a long while back, but I came over from Scotland and stayed with Alec and Imogene for a week, about 1987 while I bought a pile of junk from him. I too went to the sale, bought a $50 dollar VW for the hell of it, got it out of the top of the barn and put it back in the sale, result $5! Helped him move a safe, (very heavy) with logs as rollers across a dirt floor. The stories Ivan Saxton tells are much as I remember him telling me. He was a rogue and a crook, but I still relish having met him. At the sale I managed to get missing bits of my car from other vendors and eventually got it finished, a 1918 Bearcat.

    vauxhall parts need a home

    If they are from the 1920s, then I'm very interested, I have a 1922 Vauxhall. Mike

    Looking for a Bosch porcelain plug cap.

    I must apologise for the multiple images, somehow it seems to be impossible to delete the duplicate. The caps are Bosch.
  7. I have an early Vauxhall 23/60 bought a couple of years ago in Vancouver from an advert on this forum. After lots of work, it is nearly back on the road, but I am seeking to replace one of my plug lead caps which is beyond use. If anyone has one I will be delighted! Mike

    1918 chalmers touring 30 for sale

    The so called 'dark era' cars are much more appreciated in Britain, though doubtless the recent fall in the UK £pound sterling will not help!
  9. Back in July, I was lucky enough to buy this car and it is now shipped back to England, its birthplace. A wonderful find, the engine is now stripped down and a new block has been located. It should be up and running by Easter. Mike

    1913 36 model 17 in the UK

    The Blue Brasier, about three postings back is the car that I had put together about 10 years ago. V8 Hisso from the USA, chain drive gearbox from Switzerland, all the rest, proper Brasier bits from 1908, ie chassis front axle and steering, plus brake levers and all minor bits from Australia and original radiator and instruments from France. It is a recreation of the 1904/5 Gordon Bennett Race cars, but with a later aero engine. Real hooligan fun, 100mph at 2,300 revs and I have driven it that fast. At the VSCC Goodwood Sprint in 2010(?) the next fastest car was built in 1932, a very hot Frazer Nash. I think your Chalmers is a fine car too. Mike
