  1. Mercedes 500k special roadster. In the background behind the houses, is the factory where they manufactured the Tucker.

  3. The number of 558 153 makes it a coupe, unless the top was chopped off. A roadster would start with 559.
  4. The most recent Jay Leno’s garage video features a “new” 1931 Duesenberg LaGrande Coupe. What are the thoughts on this one? I have no problem with it and think the world is better off with it, especially since Jay is not trying to conceal anything. I think a lot of collectors would be surprised on the number of cars that have checkered pasts that are considered authentic, and even more people would be surprised on how many Classic era cars are still being created at this time from scratch.
  5. I was reading recently that the average new car sales prices exceeded $40,000 for the first time in 2020. If you use the same multiple of 60, a modern Rolls Royce would have to cost approximately $2,400,000 to have the same price differential.
  6. Andy Wise from Andy’s garage rebuilt my Gabriel snubbers. Excellent work. I would recommend him.
  7. Some prewar Packard pics. Two 900’s and a Twin Six
  8. What would the original price of the diamond studded Pierce have been? Are we talking jewelry grade diamonds or industrial use grade? That car must have been a show stopper in the depression. Do any show pictures survive? Hard to believe a car like that is long lost. Thanks for the info.
  9. Are the diamonds real on the dash and gear shift handle?
  10. The World Fair car is currently located in a Chicago collection. It is pretty impressive to see it in person. Did it originally have Blackwall tires on it? Was the twenty grand displayed at the same show also? If so it would be a hard choice between the Caddy, Packard, Pierce and Duesy... I guess I would have to have the chauffeur choose the car at that point!
  11. The year is 1933 and you are visiting the World Fair in Chicago. Which car would you be looking to put the down payment on??.
  12. Pierce arrow. Interesting use of a sweep panel on a town car.
  13. Cadillac V16. Interesting how the rear wind wings follow the top curve.
  14. Duesenberg. I like the long hoods and low windshields on these cars.
  15. 1955 Chrysler Falcon. Check out the license plate.
  16. Third series Packard Twin Six roadster with those aftermarket type wheels. This roadster model first made an appearance in the 1920 model year and was the first production body Packard with the 2 seat rumble seat. 424 cubic inch 12 cylinder engine, 3 speed transmission, 136 inch wheel base impractical rocket ship for the era.
