  1. Looks like tires are over inflated, running on the center. Maybe 4 wheel drive on paved roads??? Frank
  2. Well, I got back from Carlisle late last night. I've been vending at Hershey since about 82 and tried Carlisle for the first time. We set up on Tuesday PM and were treated like royalty by the Carlisle Events people. Very different from Hershey, where in the past 5 years or so, we have met a mixture of friendly and not so friendly officials. The crowds were steady Wed, Thurs, and Fri, but Saturday was very sparse in our area. We packed up early for the 6 hour drive home. Would I do it again, not sure, we have older stuff. It was different than Hershey, but fun just the same. Thanks to the Carlisle folks... Frank
  3. Yes, 1911, the last year for a wood firewall. (at least I think...) Frank
  4. 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
  5. I know you guys in Australia talk funny,🙂 but what is a 'scuttle'??? Frank
  6. As soon as I get it going, pop the clutch...
  7. Water table is high this year... Frank
  8. The one in the center looks like a 32 Chevy. Nicest pre-war chevy built... Frank
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Lincoln: 43 teeth Ford: 56 teeth Frank
  12. I know you are a better mechanic than I am, but do you need to bleed the injector lines??? Frank
  13. Not Model T from the Factory. Frank
  14. 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
  15. Possibly 2 cylinder Reo, around 1908 Frank
  16. 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
  17. looks like a mixture of Chevrolets 40's and early 50's Frank
  18. 1928 Auburn. Export models only had the fender marker lights... Frank

  20. It's a 1929 Essex, made by Hudson. Looks to be in decent shape... Frank
