  1. Am I missing something? It’s a new tank. Don’t you want what you paid for? A repaired gas tank is a sub standard service/repair. Welding or brazing on that tank makes zero sense..............it’s new, under warranty, they already will take it back, and any repair will be half assed. Makes NO sense.

    How about something else......and a Cord🤗

    Both very high maintenance propositions, that will surly tax you bank account. On the positive side, both will offer an above average ride.......... as it says on the case of Jack Daniels whiskey........”all goods worth price charged!” 😇

    According to the ad, “She deserves a Cord!” Personally, if it were up to me, I would give her something else.......🤔

  5. Pull the tank......it’s a fuel leak. Fix it right, or better yet, replace it. Send photos to them ASAP. They won’t cover the labor.........it’s actually no big deal to R & R the tank.........you just did it. Is a fire and burning the car or your garage to thr ground worth it?

    Thanks Gary, the bearing needed is in the steering box.


    Steering box bearings are different than general industrial type bearings, and generally are not available. Most of those boxes also used bushings extensively, which is not a good idea either. Why do you need a bearing? Rust? Worn? Dents? Most often they can be saved if not rusty. You most likely going to need a good used box if what you have isn’t serviceable.

    Here's a better look at that 1933 Packard Twelve Dietrich Sport Phaeton:

    The first CCCA Grand Classic I ever attended while still a teenager, I was looking at the Dick Dewey 1932 Dietrich that is now in the Bahre collection in Maine. While admiring the rear flip up wind wing........,a gentleman came over to me and showed me how it worked, and explained he designed it in 1930 at the university of Michigan in the automotive engineering program as part of his graduation requirement. I was too young to get his name or take a picture.........thus a small piece of history is lost to time.

    It's a 1912 Pierce Arrow, model 48.  I'm with Bob, I'd find garage space for it as is.


    I know where an IDENTICAL car is parked, in the origional carriage house. It hasn't run since the war. I have been trying to buy it since the 80's. It's the last great car I have been trying to land most of my life.
