  1. I realize not everyone using this forum is comfortable "surfing" the web, but, if you use a browser like Google, or Yahoo, or your favorite... enter this search string "worldwide investment cars .com" with spaces as shown. You should find more than one complaint or poor review ... the theme being "18 months later, still no sale"... David, you are very smart to ask for advice BEFORE plunking down any fee !!
  2. I see the resemblance in the doors of a 1923 Chandler Model 32... But the Chandler flow of fenders into running board doesn't appear right? I also see resemblance in the doors of the 1923/24 Hupmobile Model R touring...
  3. From a pic on the web of a 1924 Maxwell, I see the resemblance... Although the seam behind the engine cowl and the door configuration do not appear to match the Maxwell pic I found - maybe there is more than one body configuration? The antlers must have been an after-market addition. Thanks for chiming in!!
  4. A question came into the REO forum from Norway asking for help identifying the car in the attached old picture. Specifically the post-er wanted to know if it was an REO. Since no one has replied, I'm guessing it may not be an REO, so this forum can probably identify it pretty quickly. Anybody recognize this vehicle? Thanks, Jim Kelley California
  5. Does this latest Mopar qualify as a "woodie"? Gotta love the door panels - lol - yes, looks like dry tinder....
  6. OK... if Patina is a thing... I think you found the motherlode!!!!
  7. Not mine - and not quite sure this meets the criteria for this thread - but putting it here for comments... $4000 obo... https://classiccars.com/listings/view/1300143/1949-plymouth-deluxe-for-sale-in-chalmette-louisiana-70043

  10. So, what have we learned?? Most of us joined this forum for the love of cars - and most of us would not intentionally set out to take advantage of or burden a fellow enthusiast - however, evidently, some of us (maybe most?) have had a bad experience or two - this appears to make many of us hyper-sensitive to what is said - or in this case, what is not said. I'm pretty sure we all would prefer to look at any potential purchase in person. I'm also pretty sure most of us understand the phrase "penny-wise but pound foolish." Some of us find it easy to ask for help while some of us struggle to reach out for any sort of help. I know an enthusiast whose spouse has a medical condition that makes it a challenge to go across town to get parts from the auto store, let alone travel more than an hour to check out a vehicle in person. And this enthusiast would never admit, let alone post, the details of the reason for the request, as it might appear to be a manipulative ploy. So, without a private follow-up exchange its gonna be really hard to know whether or not you want to help. [A public follow-up unfortunately just draws out more banter - lol] Not wanting to end this post on a somber note... when I was a teen with meager funds to acquire my first car, my dad spoke to my uncle (a 'car guy'), a used car salesman three hours away in Chicago - and he said I have the perfect car for him - drive on over. When we arrived, there it sat, the back windshield had leaked water for a long time, trashing the interior and causing a bad smell. Plus, the car had been backed into some object, opening the fender like a can opener. My dad was livid. My uncle said, listen to the engine, it runs like new, the whole drivetrain is excellent, this other stuff can be fixed. You should have seen my dad's face when I told my uncle I would take it - for $250. I got it home and proceeded to look for a parts car. In two weeks, I located the perfect car and got all the parts and the full interior for $100. Of course, there was a lot of sweat-equity - but I ended up with a mechanically excellent car and learned a tremendous amount about body work and cosmetic restoration. My dad was angry with his brother for a long time. I was very happy with how things turned out. So, did my uncle do the right thing? Good luck with finding a good 'car guy'
  11. A big thank you to all vets who served and all active military that are serving right now!! Including my dad, a Korean War veteran who is an active member of his local military vehicle preservation club This is his pride and joy!!
  12. I know you didn't want a "project" - but I just saw this today... ...never know whats out there! https://sacramento.craigslist.org/cto/d/penryn-1930-franklin-model-145/6998377825.html
  13. Beautiful car - good luck with the sale! ...meanwhile, while we appear to have drifted into the proper etiquette on the Cars For Sale forum... ...has anyone seen this post on the General Discussion Board... We could expand the replies to that post to include the etiquette around what is appropriate in a reply or comment to a Cars For Sale post.... and not clutter this post with any more "rabbit trails" ...just a suggestion
  14. Let's avoid stereotypes... There are good dealers and bad dealers... There are good brokers and bad brokers... There are good private sellers and bad private sellers... There are good buyers and bad buyers... May your counterparty always surprise you in a good way!!!
