  1. From the album: Other Makes

    This may belong somehwere other than the Other Makes category, but it's here because I can't tell just what this might be. 1920's era, I'd reckon.
  2. From the album: Horseless Carriages

    The legend on the door of this brass-era tourer reads "Yosemite Mariposa Big Tree" - there's also a pennant visible with only the first three letters "WAR" being legible. Calif. license #95664, year unknown.

    Speed Wagon

    I've posted a photo of what I believe is a REO Speed Wagon in the "Other Makes" category of the gallery. Comments welcome....
  4. From the album: Other Makes

    What I believe to be a REO Speed Wagon apparently being used as a milk hauler. Why the dressed up youths are posing in front of it is lost to history....
  5. From the album: Chevrolet

    Here's a fun period image. Apparently the dealership is Moriarty Chevrolet located in Watsonville, Calif. The year is evidently 1937. The lovely lady posing behind the wheel is as yet unidentified....
  6. I just posted a period image in the Horseless Carriage Gallery of a large, expensive looking tourer. I'm not certain that it's in fact not an early 20's car, but this seemed to be the group in which I might find someone who might recognize & identify it....
  7. From the album: Horseless Carriages

    Here's a picture of a brass-era tourer. Does anyone recognize it?
  8. From the album: Chrysler's TC by Maserati

    Held in April, 2008, on the far east side of Tucson, Ariz. My TC was awarded a 2nd place trophy, having lost out in its class to a 2007 Scion "tuner" (kind of an odd comparison, really, but that's how the class was defined).
  9. From the album: Chrysler's TC by Maserati

    Taken at an event held June, 2007, in Sierra Vista, Ariz. I won a first place in class trophy here, beating out a pretty nice Rolls-Royce. My neighbor's T-bucket is parked alongside. He also topped his class, & took "Best of Show" honors as well.
  10. From the album: Chrysler's TC by Maserati

    My #1 TC at the car show held during the 2007 Memorial Day weekend in Dragoon, Ariz.
  11. From the album: Buick Reatta

    My 1988 Reatta back in 2006 at one of the weekly Saturday morning "Donut Derelict" gatherings in Pismo Beach, Calif.
  12. From the album: Chrysler's TC by Maserati

    Plus the odd Reatta....
  13. Jeff - I don't have any info on the photo at all, I have just picked up some interesting old prints in the past. I was looking some of them over this week for the first time in years & decided to scan & share a few here. I posted three to the gallery this week, this one under Horseless Carriages, one to Maxwell, & one to Model A. The Maxwell photo is remarkable for a number of reasons. Go check it out if you have the time. Stephen
  14. So far as posting the image here, don't mind at all, Chris - I certainly wanted it shared & enjoyed. I actually hadn't noticed the right hand drivers position, not that such was particularly uncommon in the brass era, even for cars meant for the American market. Nonetheless, that did get me to get out my magnifying glass to make sure that the print was not in reverse (I have run into that with many old photos - a famous example is the widely distributed reverse print of Billy the Kid that wrongly led many to assert that he was left handed). Great eyes on that plate, Chris. I now see th
  15. A couple days back I posted a photo of a large brass era car in the gallery section. Chris Paulsen believes it is a Peerless. Perhaps someone here could take a look at it?
  16. Hello, folks - I don't speak up too often nowadays, but I wanted to note that we are as a group about to mark a milestone. Although we have been going here for a lot less time than many of the other forums, this on-line TC bunch is poised to pass every other Chrysler category in sheer number of posts (unless the Dodge guys get really active all of a sudden). So I just wanted to express my appreciation to all for making this forum such a valuable resource for TC enthusiasts, & also for generally being so civil in the process, which in turn has made being your moderator a pretty easy propos
  17. From the album: Model A

    Nothing special here, just a period photograph (the license plate is a 1929 Oregon issue) of a Model A that seems to suit the lady behind the wheel just fine.
  18. I've posted an old picture of a brass era car in the photo gallery section. I can't identify the make, but I'm certain there is someone out there who can....
  19. I've posted an old picture of what I believe to be a Maxwell in the photo gallery section. It's actually a very intriguing photograph for a number of reasons. I'd be interested in anyone's opinion about the car.
  20. I certainly enjoyed myself. The one downer was on my way home from the banquet Tuesday night, I got as far as the Craycroft overpass on I-10 before running over something that punctured my right front tire on the inside sidewall (about a nickel-sized hole), & of course at 75mph, the tire shredded immediately. The Ariz. Highway Patrol was nice enough to give me a lift back to the hotel, & Larry Carlson graciously pulled a tire & wheel off one of his trailered TC's & took me back out there where we put it on the car. Too bad about that flat, too, as it was one of the original
  21. From the album: Maxwell

    I'm pretty sure this is a Maxwell, & it looks to be relatively new when the photograph was taken, but unfortunately there is no documentation accompanying it. An interesting image on several levels. Can anyone shed some more light on the car?
  22. From the album: Horseless Carriages

    An old photo of a large open car, but I cannpt identify the make. Would someone like to take a stab at it?
  23. From the album: Chrysler's TC by Maserati

    A few of the participant's cars from the just concluded Nat'l Meet in Tucson, Ariz. Events included rallies to Tubac & Tombstone.
  24. From the album: Chrysler's TC by Maserati

    Event held this past weekend. My car is between a beautifully restored early 1960's sprint car & a reproduction of GM's 1954 Motorama Nomad.
  25. Wonderful collage, thanks for submitting.
