    ID on these two

    Interesting observation. The long rear quarter window is very unusual. That and the radiator mascot should make for a positive ID once someone comes up with the answer. Don
  2. Steve, I had no idea the memory stick was available. It will definitely go on my Christmas list. You might want to start a new topic to let forum members know about it. Don

    1953 Chevrolet Panel truck F/S $750 SOLD

    Actually, these old panel delivery trucks are very popular with the street rodders (likely more desirable to them than a Suburban) and this looks like a pretty solid and straight body. It might well bring more than $750 on a site catering to that group. I wouldn't be too quick to crush it. As B Jake Moran said, tell your friend to keep at least the rear doors and hinges which are hard to find. Also the one-piece windshield is a short production item -- only 1953 and 1954, I believe.

    1931 Buick 97

    At least he didn't advertise it as a Bentley. Don

    1953 Chevrolet Panel truck F/S $750 SOLD

    Not a Suburban but a panel truck. The Suburban, like today's Suburban was a passenger vehicle with three seats and windows. The seats were removable for hauling and the rear doors were either "barn door" style as on the subject panel truck or two piece "Station wagon" style as on the Suburban pictured below. Don

    Protective mud

    That ain't mud, it's redneck undercoating. "Back in the day" many new car owners would go to the muddiest, stickiest road they could find to intentionally get a layer of protective mud on their car. They would repeat it every fall before the roads were salted. Don

    Buick truck in NE / OK?

    I don't know about a Buick, but the Iowa 80 Truckstop Museum is worth a stop if you're in the area. It's on I-80 at Walcott Iowa at the "world's largest truckstop" and has 50 to100 trucks on display. Don
  8. The ambulance in the center of the first photo is a 1942 Packard. The other is probably the same. Don

    Interesting car 1904? any guesses?

    This Model T on you tube does pretty well in the snow....well, it does have 4-wheel drive. For some reason this video seems to start in the middle. You can scroll back to the beginning. Don
  10. Craigslist Ad, not mine. https://charleston.craigslist.org/cto/d/1929-willys-knight/6716738816.html I haven't seen the car but did contact the owner. He really wants to see it restored with the original engine, but the street rodders want it. At the current $4500 price it won't be long before it has a GM 350 in it. Owner is open to offers from a prospective restorer. The phone number listed in the ad is 843-200-0553 and the car is near Charleston, SC. Don

    71Riviera questions

    Getting it checked by mechanic was the best thing you could do. A lot can go wrong when a car sits a long time and those things should be fixed before you worry about the sound. Pay special attention to the brakes which have rubber parts that deteriorate with time even (or maybe especially) if they are not used. Brakes are more important than a muffler. Congratulations with the Riviera. They are beautiful cars. I was lucky enough to have a dad who let me get my first car -- an antique needing lots of attention-- at age 15. Sixty years later I'm still into cars. Don

    1924 Cadillac Opera Coupe for sale

    Ed has said it a couple of times. Let me try to clarify. IT'S NOT ED'S CAR. He simply saw the ad on the internet and thought someone here might be interested. I do that myself sometimes as a service to other forum members. Contact information for the seller is in the ad. Don

    For sale

    Logical guess, Keiser. Now guess where it's located and whether it runs or not. Don

    Flat Head Straight 8 327

    Or, if someone was just a little devious he could put Chevrolet emblems on a Packard and fool 90% of the public. Not that anyone on this forum would do such a thing. Don
