  1. I've known Don Babb for quite sometime, he seemed intelligent, gentle, soft spoken knowledgeable man amongst other things. I live here in Palmdale CA, he also used to live here. and still has a yard or two filled of parts and cars. Yes most of the cars and parts did come from this area dry desert and he was stamping plenty ford parts from time to time. ford model A and pickups and so fourth. I've seen hundreds of parts laying around his yards both repo and originals. most of the cars were taken up to Oregon from California over the years. so they are in pretty good shape. cars and parts very solid. but in order to get any was like pulling teeth with him for a while. I think he thought he was going to live forever. never the less he was always friendly and direct from my personal experience of him. thanks, Ed
  2. Hello, extinct species of scooter?. but first! allow me to explain. I've been a fan of Cushman for some years as most of us, so i would discuss and stumble on one or two from time to time with my friends and brothers. Recently I acquired a Cushman 1955 to 59 truckster or what was left of one, in an old gentlemen's yard. for the pricey sum of $50. i said cool ill pick up a part here and there and have fun piecing it back together, "cool rite?". well the other day i was at an old farm estate sale and even here in CA they still pop up know and then. there was a strange lil 3 wheeled cart sitting in the middle of a hoarders heaven. no one could say what it was. "maybe an old farmer slapped something together from leftover parts and created his own yard machine. hmmm?? we all kinda scratched our heads. so i said its pretty unique maybe ill take a chance. but! at $45 dollars it seamed a lil risky. so i said ill see if hell haggle a lil bit could we do $35 if i buy that old 69 trail 90 from you. "sure!" he says. "sold!" i said. i did a bit of research and come to find out, its an old Firebaugh truckette or special from 45 47 ish. i don't know much more than that but would like to put out some and whatever i learned about it since there is not but 3 or 4 pieces of literature on it and nothing on the old interweb. here are a couple pics enjoy! thanks, Ed
