    If I know it right, they were patented in 1913 by Herbert M. Dawley.<P>------------------<BR>Thomas Borchers
  2. Mark,<BR>I think every car is welcome at the HCCA. Even people with no car. The main thing is that you are interested in horseless carriages (pre1916 cars). If you would like to tour with other members with a car then you need a pre1916 car because this is the supposition to participate a Horseless Carriage tour with an own car.<BR>All kinds of pre1916 are welcome at the tours. Small, big, us made, foreign made every make.<P>------------------<BR>Thomas Borchers<BR>

    Wood wheels

    Yes,<BR>a pice of glass works good also the bearing tool what Dave wrote. I saw some wood spokes which are refinished with a kind of oil. That looks good. We used in the past a transparent laquer like the laquer for ships and boats. We took a glossy one. That looks nice, too. We paint it, then we polished it with a fine sandpaper, again laquer and so on until it have an even finish. That protects the wood very good against bad weather.<P>------------------<BR>Thomas Borchers<BR>

  5. Last year I saw in Fresno/CA at Central Valley Classics an Oldsmobile. This Oldsmobile shall be an experimental car before the Curved Dash. But I am not sure if this car ist authentic or something built together from different cars.<BR>Have somebody seen this car and what is your opinion about it? <P>------------------<BR>Thomas Borchers<BR>

  7. Hello Lou,<BR>the De Vaux Motor Company came from USA. They were in Grand Rapids,Michigan and Oakland, California. They built cars from 1931 to 1932. Made cars with different bodies in 1931 with 6cyl. and 70HP 113" wheelbase and the next year tigethetr with the engine manufacture Continental with a 6cyl/80hp. But then Continental decided to build only enigines as they did before. There are some more information about the history of this company in the " Standard Catalog of American Automobiles" <BR><P>------------------<BR>Thomas Borchers<BR>
