  1. About 40 years ago, I imported to Scotland a 1913/14 Buick tourer with a big 4 cylinder engine. It was so long ago that I can’t find a photo or remember which model it was, but I do seem to think it was 1913.Anyway, to get to the point, to make it road legal I had to replace the original single rear light with a matched pair on non original lights that included brake lights.Here it is, with it's original bracket, available for someone to put back onto a touring car. I’m open to sensible offers and will post it, at cost, to anywhere world wide, from the United Kingdom..The glass is good and not broken and it is unrestored.
  2. I'm looking for a Brass radiator, something like this.......... https://content.invisioncic.com/r277599/monthly_2019_07/IMG_2929.jpg.99e106cb8b90cc6a9ebac0cb4be7b23d.jpg

  4. Wanted, Early Honeycomb Brass Vee Radiator, not Ford T. For a speedster project, unknown make is fine. What have you got in the back of your shed?
  5. The original stuff is shellac, the same as old 78 rpm records, for the life of me I can't remember the solvent, you'll need to google it, might be acetone? Just melt old records, paint it on and sand and polish.
  6. No mention of the price? I had one some years back and still have what I think is an original tail light somewhere...........
  7. Tom doesn't use this forum, his details are here, he is the 'go to' man for older spark plugs in England. Time difference is five hours behind Eastern Time. so if it is 5.30 pm with you, it is 11.30 pm over here.

  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. If they are from the 1920s, then I'm very interested, I have a 1922 Vauxhall. Mike
  11. I must apologise for the multiple images, somehow it seems to be impossible to delete the duplicate. The caps are Bosch.
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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
