  1. That sunroof cord is "smoking" hot. The paint job does not appear stock but very attractive.
  2. I spoke to the owner 2+ years past, a fellow about 84+ now assuming he is still shaking the trees at his age. He had it at auction but the high BID did not make the "reserve". I think he still owns this car. The color is correct as I have an Ambassador Sedan Model 1297 LWB at 144 inch that is the same color. A littler more than two years ago at the auction I did not see a problem with the springs. The restoration was by the owner himself. The car was in great shape and drove well. A very rare car but not concourse. Sometimes it is very difficult to let a car go when you have so many hours and
  3. The STING had plenty of 1930s cars. The "Bad Guys" rode in a blue 1934 Pierce Arrow.
  4. Stop kicking yourself. There is still a 1934 Coupe for sale I think in Loomis California.
  5. The good old days when walking down a crowded NY City street meant that you smelled or choked on exhaust fumes from hundreds of cars and trucks. Wait! That would be the good current days.
  6. Not know why but is the wheelbase the same as a correct 1936 CORD? Appears to me to have a shorter wheelbase. Am I mistaken?
  7. I really like Dave's image of the 1950s convertible with the young ladies talking to five much older men who all would like to think of themselves as being age 35 when they are all in their late 50s and early 60s. The girls are likely discussing how dirty the shoes are on the old man with the white hat.
  8. I looked at the movie (NY City). Observed clearly 4 (four) 1938 Lincoln K cars. Two were factory 145 Inch LWB "K" cars (of which only 78 were produced in 1938 base price $5,100) while 2 were 145 inch LWB Limousines (of which only 46 were produced in 1938 base price $6,200). Truly amazing how many of these vehicles were in this short movie. Also it appears that almost every 3rd par is a Packard. The neighborhood is fancy however. No poor souls living in that neighborhood back in 1938 and almost all wealthy residents in this same area now.
  9. Where is the price list located where one can find what prices charged by various States over the years for a chauffeur's license? What States did not charge for a chauffeur's license?
  10. My Dad was too old to be called a "Vagabond". His taste in music was 1940s Big Bands. However, my brother in Greenville SC years ago had a band called "Hillbilly Gift-basket".
  11. I have the exact same 1934 LWB that was sold by Bonhams. Same long 142 inch wheelbase and two side windows instead of three windows. Only difference is that my vehicle has wire wheels instead of the artillery wheels and my car has dual sidemounts. Long beautiful vehicle F.O.B. from Kenosha factory at $1,850 per unit which price was more than a Buick, less than a Cadillac, and "streamline" styling by the famous Alexis de Sakhoffsky. One of the magazine ads at the time in 1934 has a little girl (after seeing that "Dad" purchased the car) asking her father the following question: "Daddy, are we
