  1. Update on the host hotel - the meet chairman spoke with the host hotel on Friday evening (4/9) and they are sold out for our meet. The other hotels, both very close to the host hotel have rooms available - Microtel Inn & Suites - 1-507-354-9800 and the Econolodge - 1-507-359-2400.
  2. The host hotel for the Grand National - the Best Western Plus - told us today that they are filling up very quickly. If you haven't yet made your reservations and want to be at the host hotel, you should probably make your reservation soon. The phone number for the host hotel is 1-507-359-2941. We are looking forward to welcoming you to New Ulm in July.
  3. I was told about a week ago that the letters would be mailed "soon".
  4. Lycoming DXU was used by a number of cars. In 1919 Lycoming came out with the Model K, with the the same CID and no center bearing. I'll guess the engines are very similar. The model K was used until 1922, I have a good 7 page article on my web site: Gardner Motor Cars From the home page select Tech Aid & Tips.
  5. Old buicks 2 is right. This was used from 1920 to 1922. If you're ready to part with it send me a PM and does he have any other Gardner parts?
  6. I like the old logo better, but I think their new one should be 通用汽車
  7. What make and year used this rear axle? The wheels used two different style of spokes.
  8. Contact this vendor www.classicandexotic.com/index.htm Good luck it is not an easy set up to build.
  9. I wonder what the repair bill was for this 1923 Gardner sedan. It appears they painted the lower body a different color.
  10. I saw this on facebook and I know it is not a Gardner by the radiator shell and windshield. Note the golf door on the driver's side. My guess is about a 1925.
  11. The car is a 1928 model 95 Gardner. Changes for 1929 were balcranck bumpers replaced with double bar bumpers. Vents added to the cowl, and a different griffin radiator cap and sun visor. . When painted in one of the 50 color combinations it's a good looking car. Thanks for the picture
  12. In 2001 I read a blog entry from Ed Jacobowitz where he said he couldn't find information about the 1931 Gardner car. As a history buff I thought we had a page missing on that St. Louis automobile (the one with my last name). It was that blog entry that started me on Gardner history and it continues to this day. Ed was the Gardner expert then and I was his student. Over the years we would meet at Hershey and each of us would take the role of teacher and student. I started a web site to promote the marque but Ed was cold about an internet site, but when I started to find cars he didn't kn
  13. Gardner used the Lycoming 2S engine in 1925, and the Lycoming 4S in 1926-1927. No member currently has an extra for sale. I do have an 8 page Lycoming Model S pamphlet on my web site. It does list some of the differences between 4SL & 4S. If you don't have one it has a fair amount of information. Direct link: http://gardnermotorcars.com/tech/Engines/Lycoming-S.pdf
