  1. Gonna toss this out into the fray,,, Way back during Millwright schooling,I was told the normal operating range on gauges should point up so-as to see from a distance and middle of mechanical gauge's range gives the most accurate reading. So what spins at 30 ???? paper making machinery turns slow,,,,, you say the gauge face-plate has a covered up ratio speed which add to the mystery,,,, A use where rpm's would be unknown to operator but number 30 would???
  2. Picture of a roadster I found,,,,Betcha it was a girl's car
  3. got a better pic I think.... I'm guessing by the clothing the guys are wearing the this truck was already a old oddity when this picture was taken. When did people start wearing baseball caps when not on a baseball field?
  4. Found this pic at a rummage with many items from WW2 note rifle scabbard and baseball caps on the guys Thinking a truck the yanks came across during the second war to end all wars
  5. Gray & Davis model 106 anyone know what that it fits by the brackets or ???? also a presto-light tank came with it. Saw online that Cadillac used them but where there's is stamped mine has no marks.
  6. I've been watching Foyle's War and have noticed something about English cars of the pre-WW2 I remember seeing in the All Creatures Great and Small series years ago and then had no-one to ask but Thanks to the Web I can. I noticed the enclosed cars of that era have an upper strip of glass (vent?) that overlaps the window when rolled up. How bad does that leak air/water and do they rattle and break easy? Just wondering Foyle drives a Wolseley ?
  7. Found this postcard lately of a car flopped on her side. I bet like the pipe smoking guy dressed mostly in black with the watch fob was the driver . Looks half in the bag to me.
