  1. And hard to deal with too. Have you ever tried buying parts from him? He'll nickel and dime you to death.
  2. Boiling water might help. However, "simply" is definitely not part of the equation on this, as it has to be done from the top side (that is, unless, anyone can tell me how to do it from the bottom side).
  3. Yes... but there are still some people in this hobby who would do it as a hobby. Especially to one as good looking as this one.
  4. There is a 1929 Twenty #GLN-9 with a Barker Sedanca DeVille body near me that is for sale. It was fitted with a 20/25 engine from chassis GHA15. It is in nice driver condition. Estimated range of value seems to be as low as $25k to $50k, all depending on its mechanical condition.
  5. Should I remove the sway bar from the wheel side of the front end?
  6. What is the process of replacing the lower radiator hose. I just spent 3 hours removing one, and it doesn't seem possible to replace it without taking something apart. Does the suspension piece that runs from one side to the next need to be removed?
  7. I also had a similar problem this past year locating a plug for a back-up light switch. A friend is a machinist, so I gave him my crumbled parts. He easily made a new one for me, along with an extra.
  8. This ebay seller also has a bunch of that type of stuff. https://www.ebay.com/itm/133781843463?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  9. Also try Gaslight Auto Parts in Urbana, Ohio. I was in one of their sheds a couple of weeks ago, and saw boxes and boxes of NOS connectors. 800-242-6491. It might not be worth their time to hunt, though, unless you can show them exactly what you need.
  10. Looks like part of a dealer badge to me.
  11. This could be said for just about any project out there, Paul. Kind of goes without saying. Fortunately, this is a hobby, and restoring cars isn't about making money. When the project is finished, it has value. Maybe not as much value as what is in it, but at least there's value, and the person who did it got the enjoyment out of doing it. Ask a golfer how much money he can sell his score card for... or his clubs for that matter. How much can he sell his club membership for? Now there's a hobby that's a real money loser. But, obviously, people don't play golf to make money.
  12. Sure Vintage Motorcar Company 304-821-1326 VintageMotorcarCo.com
  13. I have personal experience with them. They repaired one of my cars and it is absolutely perfect.
  14. Is it metal or fiberglass?
  15. I'm resurrecting a three-year-old thread, but I am very happy to announce that an AACA member in Texas has restored his 1929 Auburn Speedster in the same way as the car in the OP. We will be featuring it in Antique Automobile very shortly.
  16. Vintage Motorcars in West Virginia is close. And very good at what they do.
  17. I have the ash trays themselves, but I don't think I have the complete framed unit in which the ash trays fit into.
  18. Excellent information. Thank you, all.
  19. Any ideas on this one. Obviously homemade body. Can anyone identify wheels and/or grille? The wheels appear to me to be wooden artillery, with some sort of full wheelcover... based on the inside passenger-side wheel.
  20. It is my understanding that the top casting is not supposed to be painted. Should be natural.
  21. Do you know if it's a cut-out before the muffler, or incorporated within the muffler?
  22. Exhaust cut-out was standard equipment on 1930 Packard 7-34.
