  1. I agree with Ransom Eli: A very nice, elegant solution. Thanks for posting the photos and your comments. (I like the truck, by the way.) Phil
  2. I have had good success keeping mice out of cars stored over winter outside by placing mothballs ( lots of them) in car interior, trunk, engine compartment, and on the ground about the car's perimeter.
  3. I had a chance to buy one - and didn't. I'm still kicking myself. It was a fun truck to drive, very solid. Congratulations! Phil
  4. My 1935 Cadillac has vacuum assisted mechanical brakes. I'm sure other models/makes did, also. The brakes work very well. There is some fade on mountain roads, probably due to the lining material. Phil
  5. If I recall correctly, the Russian ZIL and ZIS automobiles were made using Packard designs, bought under license. It would be neat to see the various models available, their local cost, and any other information. P
  6. Jeff, That 1933 Cadillac is a handsome car. I'd love to see more pictures of it. Phil
  7. Years ago, there was a movie made in eastern Pennsylvania based on the book “Birch Interval”. My 1941 Dodge pickup was involved. It was paid $25/day and I was paid $19/day to drive it. The movie starred Rip Torn, Eddie Albert, others — including, of course — me. The movie bombed, and the movie careers of my truck and me were destroyed on the spot. I’m convinced the movie failed because both my truck and I were cut from the final version.
  8. Cadillac had two taillights in 1928. I was unable to find an image of a 1927 Cadillac that had more than one taillight. The images below are of 1928 Cadillacs from Mecum auctions.
  9. C Carl, The top was in the 3/4 position, since the air temp was brisk. After I posted this picture, I concluded I should have taken more pictures, especially showing views of the "scenic, winding mountain roads". A storm came through last night, and the leaves are mostly gone now. However, I will make an effort to get pictures of some of the roads and the scenery - maybe this weekend. Phil
  10. Here is another Smoky Mountain shot. The car is a 1966 Morgan drophead coupe. The shot was taken a few days ago, when a front had moved through and the weather was great: Crisp, cold air, lots of sunshine, no clouds, and lots of leaves. The road shown here is straight, but we spent the afternoon touring windy mountain roads, with lots of steep and lots of switchbacks. The only thing that could have made it better was other old cars and friends (not necessarily old) joining us. P
  11. Fall is about past here (Smoky Mountains, NW North Carolina). This morning, there was snow on the mountains above 3500'. Where the picture was taken, we had a 1/2' of snow, but it melted before I took the picture. However, the leaves are still pretty and this is a great time of year: Crisp mornings, warm afternoon sun, cold nights. Below is a picture of my car. In the background - barely visible - is Grandfather Mountain. Had I been faster with my camera, the photo would have included three turkeys - two hens and a Tom.They are very pretty birds, but look too scrawny to invite to my Thanksgiving table. Phil
  12. Hi Trickydicky43richard, Sorry you have not yet gotten any responses. However, I think good advice is available. Do a few searches on this site, and you will find more answers than you will ever need. The subject has been addressed lots of times, albeit probably not specifically for a 1939 Chrysler Royal. You will also probably get a number of different possibilities, as many car owners have personal preferences. When you get a chance, please post pictures of your car. Phil
  13. Good looking Mom, good looking kid, good looking car. Nice picture! How neat!
  14. Hi Carl, I hope that doesn't involve your beautiful 1924 Cadillac. P
