    How to hunt for an older car?

    Doesn't look like there are any good registries, just attempts that never got off the ground. https://www.camaros.net/forums/15-tag-team/182224-how-many-members-have-68-z-28-a-16.html 10C Dale68Z orangeZZ/Blk std LOS07779 Dana Demo Cowl P.

    How to hunt for an older car?

    In the video this owner says, "It has never been a road car. The original owner brought it home and made a race car out of it." I thought that was an interesting coincidence, almost exactly what you said.

    L29 CORD CRASH == Frank Lloyd Wright?

    This is a really funny quote, from the New York Times no less. http://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2009/08/09/automobiles/0809-wright_2.html In the early 1920s, Wright bought a 1929 Cord L-29, which he praised for its front-wheel-drive. Besides, "It looked becoming to my houses," he wrote in his book "An Autobiography." He seemed to have a special bond with the Cord. "The feeling comes to me that the Cord should be heroic in this autobiography somewhere," he wrote.

    L29 CORD CRASH == Frank Lloyd Wright?

    Steve Brown Frank Lloyd Wright's 1929 Cord L-29 Return visit to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn, Indiana, March 11, 2011. Wright purchased this Cord in the 1950's, not long before his death in 1959. He had the car painted in this color, which he called "Taliesin Orange". It was the second Cord that he had owned. He bought his first, a 1929 Cord Phaeton, new.

    L29 CORD CRASH == Frank Lloyd Wright?

    Frank Lloyd Wright, who owned a Mercedes 300 SL, was commissioned to design the Max Hoffman Mercedes dealership showroom on Park Avenue in New York City. Photo courtesy Cooper Weeks. Wright, who owned an L29, described his interest and ownership experience as follows: “I believe the principle of the front drive to be logical and scientific, therefore, inevitable for all cars. The proportion and lines of the Cord come nearer to expressing the beauty of both science and logic than any car I have ever seen.” Photo courtesy Nancy Friday. http://www.hemmings.com/blog/2010/08/04/salisbury-concours-to-feature-the-cars-of-frank-lloyd-wright/

    Need help with British tire date code.

    I watched this video, maybe some others might find interesting. Fort Dunlop closed only recently. It has been converted into a Travelodge. Fort Dunlop Fort Dunlop was a motorsport manufacturing operation located in a corner of the original Dunlop factory in Erdington, Birmingham, established in 1891 until May 2014. This factory produced specialised vintage, motorcycle and touring car tyres, and produced about 300,000 specialised racing tyres per year. On 30 May 2014, the Birmingham factory ceased tyre production, ending Dunlop tyre production in the UK.

    Ebay Sellers on This Site

    I've seen that on other forums. It is some software that inserts advertisements into the text of some random person's post. For example if i posted something about a question on disc brakes, one of the words becomes a link that takes you to an online autoparts retailer selling brake pads.

    This is the shape of things to come. I've seen a couple of them around town recently. They do not need a long hood because they don't have a V-12 under it. It's a Chevy bolt EV.
