  1. I used to have spaces at both spring and fall, but gave it up years ago. Was set up next to Pinky Randall and we always had a great time. Terry
  2. Thought this topic might deserve it's own thread to keep related posts together. I've long been a fan of "wall hangers." That's how I define early motoring related prints, lithographs and paintings that are framed and of course, hung on the wall for enjoyment. I've run out of wall space though, so have a number that periodically get rotated around the house. I've already posted a few of my favorites, but here are a couple of others that I think are really great. One area that I think is particularly interesting is "The lady and the automobile." Many great illustrations were done depicting ladies with automobiles. Lots of other categories of course, and the images are found not only in print form but on other objects - but here are a few my wall hangers that I'm fond of. Terry
  3. Amen! Also interesting to see the OP hasn't even looked at this since his first (and only) post on this forum. Another example of someone who posts then disappears. - it's a DISCUSSION forum so how bout participating!
  4. Great catalog. Is it available? Would love to have it in my collection and use for further research. The story needs to be written and I'm more than willing to do that and provide it to Antique Automobile Magazine. Terry
  5. Hopefully helpful hint here - Your subject line is "Pump Parts" but your looking for someone in Minnesota??? Why not tell us what kind of pump parts you are looking for-that might stir up some more specific interest in your question. Gas Pump parts?? Water Pump parts? Fuel Pump parts? Air-Pump, Well Pump???? Terry
  6. I've always liked that Moore thermometer. It's known as "The Semaphore" indicator. Like most all motometers though, they were considered aftermarket add'ons. Some dealers would also install them but I'm not sure if any manufacturers offered them as factory equipment. Does anybody know for sure if they were ever standard equipment? Terry
  7. Bingo. Exactly what I suggested way before everyone got off on side-roads. Terry
  8. If you do a Google search for Wilmot Breeden you'll be an expert. HMN had an article on the co. a few years ago. Terry
  9. The brass car is a 1912 Lambert. It's advertised on the HCCA website too. It was for sale at Hershey in 2019, has been on this discussion forum before, and was a no sale a while back on Bring A Trailer at $23.5. Nice brass car restored a few years ago but not really that usable for touring as it's a friction drive. Looks like it may gave been the earliest car at Carlisle. Terry
  10. British made Calometer brand made by Wilmot Breeden. This style is from the 30s. Terry
  11. In theory or reality? Lots more data needed, dyno testing, etc. Maybe a hot rod forum would be a better place for your discussion. Both cars are modified "tribute" cars. To most of us that means replica, reproduction or fake designed to resemble something it may not really be. Terry
  12. Sounds reasonable - I had a feeling it was around 1912. Appreciate the quick replies. Terry
  13. I've intended to take this catalog along to Hershey or another swap meet (Luray?) but can't determine exactly what year it is. I've found it common that early catalogs are not dated and it can be difficult to pin that down unless you can figure out when certain models were introduced, or what features were offered when. This catalog features the Chase motor trucks and shows what seems to be the full range of them. A clue might be on two pages early in the booklet that describe the "Model M" as the newest addition to their line-up. So, if I can figure out when that model was introduced it might help narrow things down a bit. Any thoughts? Thanks, Terry
  14. If I remember correctly, this is an antique car forum. The only electrics that interest me are pre-war. Terry
  15. Agree-just like evil-bay, some sellers have a completely warped idea of what something might be worth. In some cases, it amounts to pure greed and represents nothing more than asking a stupid amount and hoping someone will pay it. Still though, they need to sell to survive (or at least pay the rent) and I've often been surprised at what a little conversation and a realistic offer might produce. I have a few "favorite" shops that I'll stop at when traveling too. One in particular is a "real"antique shop owned by a young couple who buy privately from estates and occasionally at auction. They know what they are doing and for most items they offer, there is a simple percentage markup on the items. It's a pleasure to do business with them. For most mall vendors, they are merely opportunists who have yet to learn you can only sell your good stuff once. Terry
  16. Yes, that's the reason I posted this little discovery. There is hope for future treasure hunting. While we've been shut in limited to paying sometimes absurd prices (or gagging on them) on evil bay, traditional antique shops have quietly been trying to find stuff to sell. Weve given them an entire year to restock. Lets hit the trail again, American Pickers doesn't get everything!!! Terry
  17. There we were-in the biggest antique mall around while attending the recent AACA event in Charlotte NC. We had a few hours following the Friday judging school to wander around. We ran into Tom Cox who already had his arms full of stuff, and Jim Elliott and Donna, who were smiling like Cheshire cats while clutching their purchases tightly. Shortly after that, I must have rounded a corner they missed - in plain sight in a display case was this great Boyce Motometer on a dog-bone radiator cap. $45.00 with the price tag hanging in clear view. This is the second nice one I've purchased recently in an antique shop for what seems like 20 year old prices. It's the occasional discovery like that that keeps me going. Terry
  18. Here is another category we've not explored yet- pocket knives. These are a few of the small. pen-knives in my collection. Thesr are made in Germany and are marked on the blade near where it is hinged. Quite a variety, some with advertising on them. Terry
  19. Let your fingers do the walking. Plenty of info on the iternet. Try a simple Google search. The AACA Library and Research Center should also have info. You are a,member of AACA, righf? Terry
  20. I've been there several times for their steam events and enjoyed them tremendously. They used to also have a great flea market, but recent reports indicate that part of it has declined over the years. Terry
  21. What are your expectations? It could be as simple as parking then out front with a for sale sign in the window. Post a few pictures and the advice you get may be a little more tailored to your specific situation. Terry
  22. I've been reading through some info on this and it appears to be a part of a larger corporation of various history and art museums. What I've seen is pretty amazing. Found the below story of how they chose the name on their Facebook page and thought it was interesting. WHAT’S IN A NAME - Once the decision was made to build an automobile museum, a unique, meaningful name was needed. Initial surveys did not produce a clear winner; but as the process of clearing the land began there it was. Uncovered in the middle of the wooded 35-acre site were the rusty remains of a 1954 Plymouth Savoy. Taking this as an omen, Savoy Automobile Museum was born. The namesake Savoy has been preserved and will return to tell its story as part of the Museum's landscape. Every car has a story, and we intend to tell those stories beginning in the fall of 2021.
  23. I'm pretty sure this pic is Charles - had the chance to meet him many years ago at a car show I was involved with in Scotland at historic Glamis Castle where he was visiting. He helped pass out trophies there. He impressed me also as being a genuine old car enthusiast and was easy to talk with. I think it runs in the family. Of course we can't argue with his choice in cars - as it says on one of Susan's tea mugs here - "God save the MG, the Queen can handle herself." Terry
  24. common scam. A good clue is to look and see how long cortez has been on these forums.
  25. The Bliss was one of several "recreations" representing a sort-of CDO (or similar). They were largely assembled using simple hardware store bits and pieces, with perhaps a little added fabrication. If you have some literature on it, and the opportunity to look at some good photos of others, you might find it easier than you think to get any missing or damaged parts replaced. Perhaps some other owners will chime in with offers of assistance in sourcing items you need. Terry
