  1. I own the twin to it and love it. They're a smooth reliable tour car. Given the cost of restoring one, I think the price is a bit steep. A few years ago a restored one sold near here for $20,000 CDN. You'd have far more into it than what it's worth.Mine is an unrestored car as well, and we enjoy it as it is.
  2. I find that the pictured RH license plate helps some, plus the barrel of my (airsoft) tommy gun visible in the rear window !
  3. I don't really care if they play the Monkeys or Mozart ,just keep it in the background so that you can have a conversation without having to raise your voice ! Jim
  4. His curved dash is being fitted with a Briggs and Stratton engine, early Model T wheels,and a 490 Chevy rear end modified for chain drive. He and some neighbours are building several more replicas to tool around in. Downtown Morpeth may soon be full of them !
  5. The fellow that owns the '32 Pontiac pictured at the beginning of this post had the rare Indian head rad cap stolen at a show. He was driving it a year later and decided to look around at a pawn shop.As he was leaving , the pawn shop owner came running out saying he might have something for the car. It was the missing rad cap !
  6. Apparently there were seven built in 1920.This one was purchased at a Ford museum clearout.
  7. GRRRR ! Some years ago a friend was displaying his Model A at a fall fair. He observed from a distance a fellow park his nearly new car and proceed to sit in the Model A,looking all around. My friend then went and sat in the newer car, looking all around,in the glove box,etc. The guy came running over, yelling and screaming. My friend calmly looked up him and asked "Oh, isn't it open house ? You were in my car".
  8. I'm no fan of Rolls Royce cars and this example is one of the reasons why.
  9. There isn't a photo of the '36 Rolls and I didn't bother to climb in for a look.All I could see was that it has a slant back and that it's yellow !
  10. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/chatham-kent/barn-find-classic-cars/1431151302?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true Not mine, just a lead. This Hudson (picture 6) is complete but apart. An 84 year old gent in SW Ontario is clearing out his hoard.
  11. I was merely quoting the ad. He does have a 1936 Rolls Royce listed.
  12. Yes,it's Jim O'Connor's stuff. He has a complete '29 Whippet coupe,but it needs the works.He parked it years ago when the tranny went out in it.A spare trans is sitting behind it. I don't know if there are any other parts, but imagine he would like to sell all the Whippet parts as a package. I didn't ask him individual prices but I think he would be very fair to deal with. The fifth photo of the ad shows the 1916 Chevy 490 roadster on the right and the Whippet coupe on the left.
  13. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/chatham-kent/barn-find-classic-cars/1431151302?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true This hoard belongs to an 84 year old gent who has collected for years.He's near the Detroit border with Ontario. Literally tons of stuff. I was just down to see him on Monday. Jim
