  1. The one i saw at Hershey in 2015 was truly SPECTACULAR it was a Darrin-bodied towncar.
  2. i was wondering if there is any car club specifically for Belgium's premier make of car Minerva. I saw one at Hershey (It was the first one I ever saw} and was truly impressed.
  3. You know its funny; my mother worked for Philco in the 1950s and early 60s (until she married my dad had me and became a stay at home mother-you remember those. Anyway I was able to find Arts phone number and left him a message. Apparently he is still active.
  4. Can someone explain to me why Carlisle was held and Hershey was canceled?
  5. I own a 1940 Packard 180; as with most cars this age the radio does not work. Can any member recommend someone in southeastern Pennsylvania (or the three adjoining states )who could restore this radio to operation.
  6. I recently went on vacation to a location in an oceanside community. While there I noticed the air conditioning units (which had only been installed a few years ago) had a very heavy coating of surface rust undoubtedly caused by a salt air environment. I wondered if there was any machine that could remove the salt from the air while old cars are in storage in such an area (since I have allways wanted to move to a beach community.
  7. When I bought the car it already had an 8 volt battery in it, when I buy a car I always replace the battery first so I put a brand new interstate 8 volt battery.
  8. Well like I said I do not really drive the car on a regular basis so it sits from time to time. The previous owner had installed a 8-volt battery and set up the voltage regulator to support it but I find I usually have to charge the battery up the day before I start it up and take it out on the road; and that is even after installing a disconnect switch on the battery which resembles a knife switch which I almost always throw to the off position before leaving the car in the garage.
  9. Recently I purchased a 1940 Packard 180. It is a very original car and as befits a car of its status it has many accessories including radio, foglights, heater and defroster backup lights and numerous lights in the dashboard and courtesy lights. It runs like a champ most of the time, but the charging system seems to have a hard time charging up the battery; admittedly I have not driven it a long distance (over 100 miles) yet. At some point a previous owner had the voltage regulator tuned to accept a 8 volt battery instead of the original six-apparently he was having an issue with it as well. I
  10. When I was a young lad over 50 years ago I used to watch TV among my favorite shops were The Untouchables with Robert Stack, Star Trek, My Mother the Car, the Munsters and the Adams Family. I was always intrigued by the vintage autos that would show up in these shows. I wonder if anyone ever made a book about these cars and where they are now. I distinctly member a chase scene on the untouchables using of all things a Duesenberg J!
  11. I am looking to add an air conditioner to my 1955 Packard since it is a driver I plan to go with an aftermarket unit I saw this one made by Classic auto air does anyone out there have this unit and if so are you satisfied with it?
  12. One question I have always had when mounting a trunk on the trunk rack of a 30's car how is it held in place?
  13. I was looking to have some chrome mouldings replated for my car. There is a plater in my hometown called Frankford plating; depending on which reviews you read they are either the best chrome platers in the business or the worst I wanted to get some opinions before I take the parts to them.
