Now I am back and want to get started again. is that a picture of your car with the PPG paint? it looks great ! I am also looking for a frame and running gear for a speedster project I want to do ( kinda like the yellow one on the DBC web links) I think it would be a neet project , and a way to get some parts back on the road.

  9. Hi, everyone, I am starting the restoration on my 17 touring car. I need some help, and a lot of parts. #1 problem is the wheels, The car now has disk wheels. I know they are not original but I am stuck with them. The hubs and maybe the entire rear end must be from a later car to go with the disks. two of the disks are no good. so what do I do ? find to disks to go on a car I know will not be original? or try to replace the drive train to except the correct wood spokes. What size should they be? any ideas? #2 I also need many other parts, to include Vacuum tank, top bows, top/seats (lether) My e-mail is oundawg@cox.net Can anyone Help? Thanks, Mark Ounan

  11. It will be about a 2 hour drive from Falls Church to Hershey. you will most likley take the beltway (495) around Washington. then 270 north. 270 will turn into 15 north when you hit PA. look for 581 east at Camp hill. take it. look for signs to Hershey. or do a Map Quest for the Hotel Hershey. that will get you close. call me if you need help.
