  1. Hello Everyone, My 1912 Twenty-two has finally made it to PA from Texas. Here are some pictures as promised. I was told by the widow selling this Metz that it had been in the same ownership for over 5 decades, and was obtained by trading for a shotgun. As far as I can tell it has been off the road for a very long time, but is surprisingly solid. The ancient Wards Riversides are even holding air (for now) Its pretty complete mechanically. I'd love to find a proper gas tank, headlight mounts, top, belly pan, horn, and lights all around for it. I have a few projects ahead of this one, and I am not really sure what my goals for it are, but I'm kind of excited for it. The engine turns well, and feels like it has decent compression. Please feel free to reach out with any info or parts availability. -Matt
  2. I would still be interested in selling the Franklin, It is mostly original but has had amateur repaint work done. The engine has been rebuilt. I have the pan off now checking all bearing clearances and so on. Interior totally original. There's a great club for franklins that is a wonderful resource for info, and parts. as far as the parts go, its original. No mechanical modifications.
  3. Hello, Matt here from Scranton PA. I recently purchased a 1912 Model 22 Metz Project and I will likely be hunting parts soon. It will be joining my garage with a few 1920s Franklins and a few later cars from the 50s and 60s. Its an ambitious project but at 25 years old I might be the youngest current Metz owner! I don't have the car home yet but I will post pictures when I can. Did the 1912 Metz 22s have a cooling fan and pulley in the front? I have seen lots of cars photographed without them. Also, is there any significance to the control lever for the friction drive being mounted in the center of the car vs. to the left of the driver? I have seen both configurations. Looking forward to connecting with some fellow Metz owners. Some things I know I will be hunting are as follows: Headlights Taillights Headlight and taillight stanchions Proper oval gas tank Rear seat/body Windscreen Proper Carburetor Hub caps Horn Top bows and brackets Steering arm Chain guards Belly pan Fan blade and pulley I am interested in any other misc. parts that would fit a 1912 model 22 -Matt
  4. I just purchased a 1912 that looks pretty untouched, when I get it home from TX I will let you know what it has on it.
  5. Are there still Metz parts available? I am in Scranton PA and interested. @scudaria_motorsport cell is 3306058511
  6. I have a 1922 Franklin Series 10A that I am interested in selling. It is a closed two door sedan, with a V-Shaped windshield. Franklins were produced in Syracuse NY from 1902-1934. It has an air cooled six cylinder engine, three speed transmission, and an all original interior. Franklins are great vehicles for touring, and the club is a massive resource for parts and technical information. We even have a majority of the Company's blue prints and drawings on our website, digitized and searchable for members. This car is 100% complete and it has a lot of original finishes showing. The engine was rebuilt and needs some bugs worked out, I am currently doing that now. I would sell this car for $13,900 or any reasonable offer. Located in NE Pennsylvania.
  7. I have been following this car, I will most likely attend the auction. Anyone looking to purchase should be prepared to spend a good amount of money for having proper rims/wheels made and tires purchased. The ones on it are far from correct. Coker is currently sourcing a new manufacturer for their wheelworks offerings. They said it could be anywhere from a year to two years before a new customer would be able to get wheels.
  8. It is disappointing to see the negative comments throughout this thread about 1990s eligible cars in AACA, and it is equally as disappointing to see the time and time again generalization of young people not caring about cars, new or old. It is this EXACT mentality that will drive away young individuals who stumble upon AACA and find a non accepting group of individuals who write them off from the start. Times are a changin'...get ready to see people with 1990s cars at our shows and be ready to welcome them with open arms. This has been a trend for decades in this club starting with opposition to model A's in the 50s. I was happy to be involved with presentations at the Annual Meeting regarding these same topics and can only hope that some of it sticks with this group. Signed, The 24 year old who loves his 1922 Franklin and his 1994 Ford Ranger, AND EVERYTHING IN-BETWEEN, because that what AACA is.
  9. It doesn't take up much space!! Would make a wonderful daily driver.
