  1. Not the new ones. Electronics are a nightmare...much of it doesn't work the way it's supposed to and the dealerships can't repair it. I've been putting up with the same electronic problems now for over 2 years. No to mention that it takes 2 people to operate...one to drive and another to manage the touch screen. Something as simple as changing the AC settings can't safely be done by the driver.
  2. This is precisely why several months ago I stopped posting images here and on the 'Period Images...' thread.
  3. A little over a year ago I purchased my 1920 Cole touring car through a HMN listing. The seller didn't advertise it anywhere else. Thank you HMN. I'll keep renewing my technophobia paper subscription.
  4. Just showing respect and acknowledgement for your responding to my thread. My apologies if you felt that was offensive.
  5. I just added some more info and additional pictures. Agree that the owner is extremely optimistic.
  6. Saw this at the Daytona Turkey Run on Saturday, 27 March. The car was still there today, Sunday. Owner wasn't there, but a friend of his was watching it for him. He said the owner/car resides in Edgewater, FL. He said the car was in Palm Beach for a few years prior to the present owner buying it.
  7. I have a very nice set of 23 inch rims. I'm not sure about the detachable rings. Picture attached. Is this what you're looking for? If so, I can send pictures of the other 3. Right now the other 3 have tires mounted on them, which I need to remove and put on Firestone rims. Regards, George
  8. Malcolm and I have been in touch, even though he's halfway around the world. The engine overheated with resulting damage. inspection revealed cracked connecting rods, among other problems. He's having new ones machined.
  9. Sadly, they are all now most likely in their 80s or close to it. I'll bet they didn't retain their looks as well as the 9 remaining cars did.
  10. A little over 30 minutes to go and still only $5500.
  11. Bidding only $5200. Closes in 6 hours. 1917 Hupmobile Model N Touring Car for sale on BaT Auctions - ending March 19 (Lot #44,820) | Bring a Trailer
  12. You watch too much Chicken Little news...."The sky is falling....The sky is falling.: Lived here for 34 years and have never had a direct hurricane hit. Several brushed by with minimal damage, but no flooding or houses washed away.
  13. Thank you. I had never seen them before. Is that really a problem with the axle dropping too far?
