  1. 1928 Chevrolet coupe, for sure. But it never looked as good as the one Keiser pictured with the tan highlights and white walls. Originally it would have looked more like this. Don
  2. Hood looks too long for a Chevy. I'd opine a medium-priced GM brand. Don
  3. Looks like a nice one. 1961 chevy corvair for sale by owner - Myrtle Beach, SC - craigslist 1961 corvair Automatic 23,000 original miles One family owned Garage queen Interior looks as no one has ever been inside it Undercarriage is perfect Chrome is spotless It's that car old lady owned only driven on Sundays Car has barely seen rain Car is about as nice as you'll find Drive ready Myrtle Beach sc Don
  4. Many of us have photos we took years ago of interesting vehicles, and I often wonder if they're still around. I recently heard from the owner of a coach-built early classic which was purchased as several truckloads of parts, and has now been totally and beautifully restored. I happened to have photographed the car probably 60 years ago, and mine was the only photo the owner had seen of the car before it was disassembled. It made me wonder if I or other forum members had similar photos. PLEASE DO NOT OFFER OWNER'S NAMES UNLESS IT'S YOUR CAR -- Many people don't want their name on the internet. If they want to be identified, they can do it themself. As an initial entry I'll offer a set of two cars -- a 1908 Rauch and Lang and a 1913 Buick (Model years as stated by the owner are likely incorrect). Photographed around 1963 in a warehouse in Chattanooga, TN. The company manufactured snow chains and that is what we see stacked around the cars. The owner had kept his old cars as he replaced them, and also had a 1929 Plymouth, a 1939 Plymouth and a 1949 Plymouth which, at the time, were not old enough to arouse my interest. I'm betting both of these are still with us. Don Do you own one of these?
  5. This forum is a good starting point. Ads are free. Everyone on it is interested in old cars and, consequently is a possible buyer. Start a new thread for each vehicle. Otherwise things get confused as far as which one they're looking at. Give the location. We have members from all over the world, and a nearby car is much more attractive than one half a continent away. And yes, photos.. not just photos, but Good photos. Be sure to show interior as well as exterior pictures, and also photos of the engine. The more information you can include, the better. Good luck with selling the cars. Don
  6. Leif in Calif said "It seems like these turn up with surprising regularity...I wonder why that is. " A Packard was more than a car. It was a trophy, a testament to your success in the world. Packard owners tended to take good care of their cars and kept them longer than most other makes. If you bought a new "Big Three" product after the war, you would have been ready to trade it on a new one when the dramatically updated models came out in 1949. The Packard owner might have waited for the new Packard style which didn't come out until two years later, and then many people preferred the old style over the new. The class of people that were accustomed to driving Packards often had room in the garage to keep the old one that they had become attached to. Like my brother-in-law who drives only BMW's and has his '76 model, the first BMW he bought new, sitting under a cloth cover in the corner of his garage where it has been for years. It's my observation that Franklins also survived in numbers not reflected in their original production. It's the same reasoning. Franklins, with their air-cooling, were unique when they were new. Franklin owners saw themselves as discriminating individuals and drove their cars long past the normal lifetime of their contemporary vehicles. Don
  7. 63RedBrier, Thanks for posting the photos and thanks particularly for taking the extra effort to identify and tell us something about the vehicles -- few members do that. It's frustrating for me to see a photo of a beautiful, rare car and not know what it is. Don
  8. Maybe a little ambitious on the price? 1953 plymouth for sale by owner - Hinesville, GA - craigslist
  9. I go for the AACA car meet. I usually go Saturday to look at the AACA cars, and by the time 2 or 3 o'clock rolls around my aging body is too exhausted to visit the swap meet. And don't forget the Grand National meet Friday -- I guess I'll have to stay overnight this year. The AACA shows are outside the speedway and are free. Little or no food at the car meets, but plenty of choices inside the gates. There is a charge to get into the flea market. Definitely worth the trip for me. Don
  10. Thousands of lives in the Chattanooga area, particularly children have been enriched by the several medical and mental facilities of the Siskin Foundation -- founded by brothers Mose and Garrison Siskin, who made their fortune in the scrap metal business. Our History and Founding | Siskin Children's Institute Siskin Children's Institute Siskin Early Learning Center Siskin Hospital for Physical Therapy Siskin Behavioral Health Siskin Hospital for Physical Rehabilitation Siskin Hospital for Lymphedema Several other facilities including other Tennessee and Geogia locations.

  11. The unknown roadster bears a lot of similarity to this 1918 Roamer. Whatever it is, it's a very interesting example that is worth taking a look at.
  12. The first is a 1929 or 190 Chevrolet. What country was the photo taken in? The fender mounted parking lights look European. The landau irons and long door opening with no visible door post make me think convertible victoria which was not a factory offering. My guess is a custom bodied car which was common in Europe. Don
  13. Ebay, but you can't afford it -- well, I can't anyway. In the 1950's there was an abandoned mansion near my home, and some friends and I decided to explore it. That magazine was among many scattered around, and as a car nut even at that age of 12 or so years, I "liberated" it. I wouldn't recommend trying that these days. Don
  14. Pierce Arrow 1931 Waterhouse Convertible Coupe from magazine coverage of the New York Automobile Salon at the Commodore - "Town and Country" magazine if my memory is correct. Maybe someone can rotate it for me. Don
  15. Chrysler 1931 Le Baron Phaeton from magazine coverage of the New York Automobile Show at the Commodore - "Town and Country" magazine if my memory is correct. Maybe someone can rotate it for me. Don
  16. Is the rumble seat original? If so, it is rare. I've never seen one on a '38 coupe, and this one looks like it doesn't fit up very well -- like it could be a later addition. Don
  17. Check with the North Charleston Fire Museum . northcharlestonfiremuseum.org When ALF went under, the city of North Charleston, SC took over the ALF museum. I looked through photos I took at the museum and the only clear picture of a bell was this Model T. The bells I remember were the moving clapper type. Don
  18. I was contacted by the new owner of a car I sold more than 50 years ago. And it was through this forum. The new owner did a Google search and found an 18-year old post in this forum. The clincher was that the car is still wearing the same license tag it had in a 1961 photo when I owned it. I guess it's still registered to me.
  19. I don't know about the cars (could the second be a White?), but are those solar panels on the roof? Don
  20. A man gets home from Hershey and his wife comments that he looks worn out. He says “I was with Joe and two other friends looking for parts. Unfortunately, Joe had a heart attack and died about an hour after we started.” “That's terrible” she said. He responded “Tell me about it! The rest of the day it was look at parts, drag Joe, look at parts, drag Joe, look at parts, drag Joe..” Don
