  1. 99 percent of the things you worry about never happen............. Get busy living........ ...........Cars, Women, Booz............is there anything else? Drive it like you stole it................. When in doubt.........give it gas............. I spent all my money on booze, women, and cars........never wasted a penny! I like to spend time talking to myself.........I like dealing with a better class of people. He who has the most toys when he dies wins! I sure have a neat pile of junk in the garage............ Its time to drive my Ossa.......Cadillac, Pierce Arrow, Model T, Packard, Auburn, ect.............😀
  2. The Henley Roadster that was there for fifty years on display is gone.............its sitting right behind be in the garage. The Doble is gone(If I am not mistaken).........can't say where.
  3. It went from a top ten museum in the world thirty years ago, to something I no longer care to visit. Remember when all the good stuff was there, and it was five bucks to get in? Sad but true, the people running it are intrested in paychecks and politics, not the original purpose. Henry is rolling over in his grave.
  4. Send me a PM with your phone number and a good time to call. This is the third request today I have had on Cad-Jonson carbs. Ed
  5. Why own hundreds of junkers.......buy two or three decent high rollers.......
  6. I have restored much worse.......but today you can buy an identical car, restored, for less than he is asking for his project. While I like all Lincolns if I am going to make an effort to do a project Lincoln, it would be a KB. I like the early Leyland cars, but they are much less drivable than the later cars.
  7. It would take too long and too many pages here to explain. They are a good compromise for many people....."open and closed" all in one. They just are not for me. After 1931 not too many companies made four door open cars( phaeton, 7 pass touring, DC, ect.) , so in many cases, you don't have the option if you want a four door open car. Putting the top up and down can be a challange on many of them.
  8. If you want a trophy....you can just buy one.
  9. I have owned virtually every body style pre war CCCA car but one. Interestingly Limos are a favorite of mine. Also Dual Cowl Phaeton’s. The only body style I will NEVER own? Convertible Sedan
  10. It’s the least expensive three window that will scratch that itch you have had for years. I have had three of them in the time you have been talking about buying one, 1931 Cadillac 355A Sport Coupe 1932 Pierce Arrow Series 54 Sport Coupe 1929 Pierce Arrow Series 133 Leather Top Coupe AJ- It’s your turn!
  11. While I only attend one Hershey Concours, I very much enjoyed myself and showing a car. We had a conflict the past three years, and intended to bring a car next year. Thanks for all the work and effort to the committee, the show was always spoken of very highly by many big time collectors.
  12. Buy your rebuild kit here........I have used him several times, good guy, and you can call him for help.
  13. Also, it’s possible to have a fuel line in the tank with a rust hole above the fuel level, causing the system not to draw. Guess how I found that one out...........
  14. Yes......It means your looking at buying it! 😎
  15. If it makes anyone feel any better, whenever I am in California with a car that has a Bijur oiling system, I always lube the chassis and dump the oil on the ground. I love explaining it's stock, and thus perfectly legal. I like to leave a large carbon foot print.......😎
  16. Why buy a T? Let’s see........I have owned and driven all of the BEST pre war stuff on the planet.........ALL OF IT, in the parking spaces behind me are ALL the automotive legends from the American continent ......all of them. I have a 15 T that’s all original, unrestored, and I enjoy it just as much as the Model J I took to lunch on Saturday morning. If you don’t understand and appreciate a T, you just don’t understand the old car hobby.
  17. What ever happened to Darwin? The nanny state is asinine.
  18. That’s a great automobile at a very reasonable price............I usually only look at CCCA or HCCA cars. I would own this little Chevy, and that’s about the highest compliment I can give to any car. I’m going to stop looking at it now.......I don’t want to call Matt and buy it.
  19. Half tracks are not that hard to find. I had several farming implements for them sold after the war to the farmers. I still have the plow for the fields. Prices on a decent half track needing nothing are less than he is asking, and reproduction armor today is a 75 percent hit on value. I am told the new reproduction armor is water jet manufactured and as good as new. They are lots of fun, and ride like a tank.....I mean half track.
  20. I already knew the answer...........look at the positive side.......it’s just about the only chrome on the car. Us guys who like big closed cars really take the pipe...........car looks great.
  21. All I can offer is cars with palm trees.............😎
  22. That is a very good looking parts car........sad but true.
  23. It's amazing what twenty five dollars of chrome plating will do to transfer a grill shell.............just saying.......🤑 Looks great, just like the rest of the build. 👍
  24. Ron...It's ironic that I have a 15 T and have arranged for a T mechanic to service it.........I'm so busy with the big stuff I never get to it. I'm at least ten years out from my next move.
