  1. I agree with all of the above. I believe Gilmore Museum has their famous Red Barns show the first weekend in August. If you can make it, it is a great car show and swap meet in addition to all that the museum has to offer. Either way, the Gilmore would be the first museum I would visit. In addition to what has been mentioned above: The Detroit Historical Museum is also a great and easy option as it is open seven days a week and is free. Unfortunately, they have very few of their great cars on display, but the museum and its exhibits are excellent and do deal with Detroit's automotive history as well as other important Detroit contributions such as music, art, architecture, culture etc. There is also a great 1880s full size village that is underneath the museum as well as a great operating and static toy train collection. It is a great place to take a family as it would appeal to everyone of all ages and interest. The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) is also a not to be missed attraction especially if you are into art. A drive through the Boston-Edison district will give you a glimpse into how the automotive barons lived during the early 1900s. The estates are amazing and many have been recently returned to their former glory. The Packard plant is certainly worth a drive by as well as some urban-archeological exploring if you get a chance. There are some great dining experiences to be had in Detroit including Sweetwaters for BBQ, Greektown for Greek food and, of course American Coney Island and National Coney Island-obviously known for their Coney Dogs. If you need any other suggestions, please feel free to email motoringicons@hotmail.com. I spend a lot of time in Detroit.
  2. Here is a good and proper steering column assembly which is correct for 1914 Model Ts but can be used on all years. I don't think this has ever been taken apart or messed with. it was repainted years ago and there is some very light pitting on the metal column itself, but it is really minimal and easily filled if desired. The quadrant has good teeth and the Dodge Brothers stamping is very clear on the bottom. It has the correct lower bracket with the large, embossed part number. The long, tapered spark and throttle rods are in good condition and both have their little connecting links. The pitman arm is included. The threads on the pinion top (where the steering wheel bolts to) has some damaged but still holds the steering wheel nut just fine and is usable. This column assembly could be used as-is on a driver quality car or easily refinished for a high point restoration. These are getting hard to find in this condition. Take a look at the photos, what you see is what you get. If you want more photos, just let me know. 300.00 plus 75.00 for shipping/insurance in the USA or local pickup near Detroit, MI. I accept PayPal for payment. Please email directly at: motoringicons@hotmail.com or call 734-730-4274. Thanks.

  7. I have had at least 10 overseas buyers use CFR Rinkens for cars they purchased from me. They have been absolutely professional to deal with from start to finish. Professional, efficient, well organized, prompt and courteous on all levels. They are a large company and the reps I have dealt with really seem to know what they are doing. My customers have said that they have also come in significantly cheaper than others in the industry. In some cases, they handled just the shipping and in other cases they handled the payment as well. All has been good from my end as a seller and my buyers have never had any problems that I am aware of. One of the most recent deals involved a 1921 American LaFrance Firetruck with "all the trimmings" and my customer said it quickly arrived to the Netherlands intact and well "packaged". This is just my experience. Your results may vary.
  8. I remember that "30" 1911 Cole Roadster. I think it was part of Harrah's collection? Lots of great cars here. Thank you for posting.
  9. FINAL PRICE REDUCTION: 24,500.00. If you have been looking for a good, honest car that is ready to use and enjoy, this is a heckuva deal. It is genuinely ready to drive and enjoy.
  10. 159 Model As on a tour. That's a lot of cars considering Model As were only built for four years and the last one was built 88 years ago. Yet prolific members of this forum think that interest in Model As is a thing of the past. I think not. I'm really looking forward to the MARC National Meet in Dearborn this year.
  11. Congratulations on your sale. You made someone a very happy, new "old" car owner. Hope to see this car on the road again.
