  1. At the McPherson College car show, the only music we have is the college jazz band, and the high school jazz band. Each plays a set lasting about 45 minutes. Otherwise the PA system is used for the occasional announcement. Without any other music throughout the day, the jazz bands really stand out, and everyone loves it. They are young talent, playing jazz, it is not all day, and the sound system is adequate enough that it doesn't have to be blasted. It's just one of the things that make our show different. I've had some people tell me they come back each year because we don't blast music all day.
  2. If you're in the area, I'd invite you to attend the annual McPherson College CARS Club swap meet, in McPherson, Kansas on Saturday April 13. It is entirely student-run. It is small, but vendor spaces are indoors, just $25 and we have a lot of fun. It is at the 4H grounds (401 W. Woodside), not McPherson College. I'm having trouble posting the flyer, but pm me for more information.
  3. Definitely a 2-cylinder Maxwell. I believe it is a transition model between 1911 and 1912. The radiator and hood are 1912, but the body, fenders, etc are 1911. The shifter is signature Maxwell.
  4. It's a 1943 Missouri strip, made to go on the bottom of the 1942 full-sized plates as a renewal. The number 67-354 would have matched the 1942 plate. I hope this helps.
  5. Here's our 1913 Little Giant-same photo shoot as the latest cover of the HCCA Gazette, but without the people blocking the truck😀. The Little Giant is so slow, that I'm not sure it rides any different than if it had pneumatic tires.
  6. I'm sure this tow vehicle is well known today. In 1964 when this photo was taken, B.C. Hartline owned this Duesenberg. What does it look like today?
  7. It's a Peerless, probably 1909 that's been updated with the addition of front doors, and electric lights. The running board tool box with horizontal beads, louvers on the hood, handle placement on the hood and straight front fender are the give-aways.
  8. As you can see one is much better than the other. The better one is of the earlier cars (1922-24?), the bad one is of the later cars (1925-28?). The good poster measures 25"x38". I imagine the other was originally that size, too. Definitely original. The backs are blank. Asking $275 for the pair, US shipping included. International shipping at cost. Feel free to make an offer, trades entertained. Kid's fingers not included.
  9. This photo (taken in Maine) appeared in books and magazines as an example of how to find cars in the late 1940's. I believe the cars are a Hudson and Oldsmobile. Where are they now?
  10. Great thread! What does this Thomas look like now?
  11. That article you found is about the 1911 P-D I own. The lower spring mounts directly to the rear axle housing. They used a more conventional rear suspension in 1913.
  12. I was at the auction. I don't remember anything specifically marked "Maytag", but there was so much stuff, it may have been there. I did buy a lot of the windshields and windshield parts, and none that I got were marked Maytag.
