  1. Not sure if I'm a fan of tape or stencil, I guess it depends on the car. I'm an early car fan, so for me, it's hand striping. I bought a Bugler tool about 30 years ago in the old blue field from the blonde lady (I'm sure you all remember her). Never used it... Frank
  2. I know you guys in Australia talk funny,🙂 but what is a 'scuttle'??? Frank
  3. As soon as I get it going, pop the clutch...
  4. Water table is high this year... Frank
  5. The one in the center looks like a 32 Chevy. Nicest pre-war chevy built... Frank
  6. Dave, make sure you leave a clean spot for my AA in the next 2 weeks. It's coming over for that fender repair.... Frank
  7. As far as remembering, there was a particular year when the Gumbo was especially thick, not sure which year, but it could have been any one... I woke up one morning after a hard rain to find the roads in the Blue field were churned to goo by the late arivals. There was the rather attractive young lady wearing a white leather jacket with white leather pants and white shoes (really) inching her way through the mud. She walked up to this salty looking guy and asked, "Would you have any parts for a Jaguar?". He barked in response, "We don't mess with that sh$$%^!!" She just slowly moved on.... Frank
  8. Lincoln: 43 teeth Ford: 56 teeth Frank
  9. I know you are a better mechanic than I am, but do you need to bleed the injector lines??? Frank
  10. Not Model T from the Factory. Frank
  11. Ed, there is a guy in California making new water pumps for that Marmon. But you probably already know that. The last time I talked with him, he had two on the shelf. Nice car... If you ever need a starter for it, let me know... Frank
  12. Possibly 2 cylinder Reo, around 1908 Frank
  13. Not sure about it being a late 20's Stude. The cowl lamp on these cars was curved with a point in the front like that below. The one on the photo looks more drum shaped, like Buick. Frank
  14. looks like a mixture of Chevrolets 40's and early 50's Frank
  15. 1928 Auburn. Export models only had the fender marker lights... Frank
  16. 1910 EMF in very good running condition for sale: $40,000. Rear axle and engine rebuilt less than 5000 miles ago. Good solid runner. Once owned by Henry Austin Clark of Long Island Auto Museum fame. 5 near perfect Lester tires/tubes; decent leather interior. Has been on many New England Brass & Gas tours as well as other tours throughout the Northeast. Delivery possible. Frank Iaccino 518-755-0986
  17. It's a 1929 Essex, made by Hudson. Looks to be in decent shape... Frank
  18. Best guess: 17-21 Dodge Bros... Frank
  19. To Bill & Steve: If I came across as unsympathetic in the above post, I apologize. It is frustrating to see ALL events cancelled because of this virus. We have Governors who grab power to take our liberties without the consent of the legislature and are then supported by the courts. We can keep liquor stores open but we can't attend church. I know it is a herculean task to organize a tour of this size and your efforts are not missed by me, believe me, I have organized tours in the past, just not as large. What is most annoying is that i truly believe this entire episode was by design, not happenstance. Frank
  20. I just found out that the Glidden tour has just been cancelled, also. I think it's time for the organizers of these events to do what the Carlisle people did. Get your heads out of the sand for Pete's sake... Frank
  21. If you remove the rear hub cap (unscrew) you will most likely find a large castellated nut with a cotter pin. remove these and pull the wheel straight off. You may need a puller, the kind that screw onto the hub with a center bolt that presses against the axle shaft. Frank
