  1. Ohio regular auto plates are in vicinity of $48 a year while a pickup is about $55. Antique Plates A vehicle must be at least 25 years old to qualify for antique plates. In addition, the vehicle must only be used for antique exhibitions, parades, and related activities, not for routine transportation. Of course, the vehicle must be in sound enough condition to drive safely. To apply for the plates, complete the antique plate application form. Bring it to a license agency, or mail it to: Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Attn: Registration Section P.O. Box 16521 Columbus, OH 43216
  2. Please list the make and model of the car. Do have wire wheels or wood wheels Take a photo of hub and post it. If you have screw on hub caps, measure the size of the hub with a caliper. They will be 2 1/2 or 2 /3/8 or 2 5/8 etc. You can purchase a bell shaped wheel puller threaded inside. If you have bolts & wheel nuts, you will need a different kind of wheel puller.
  3. If you have the time, take the car and enjoy the trip. I drove my 1931 Hupmobile the 160 miles from Dayton to Louisville last year. Took all surface roads down and back the 4 hour trip. This year I drove the 95 miles to Columbus on interstate highways leaving at 7:00 am on a Sunday. Came back on surface highway 42, mostly 2 lane. I like to get out a stop about every hour or so for 10 minutes, maybe more. Depends on how many people descend on the car and ask questions. Be prepared for passing cars and semi-trucks to give you a quick beep beep and a thumbs up as they pass with big smiles.
  4. The tire is still available and it includes the tube in excellent condition. I will be at Hershey in October and can deliver it there.
  5. straight8pontiac, were you able to get the air cleaner on ebay? Are you still looking for one?
  6. Wow, I am surprised at the verity of DUMB questions posted that I have not been asked. I have a 1931 Hupmobile 6 cylinder that I take to local shows and some cruse ins. I am under 70 and am also asked if I purchased it new 80 years ago and I thought I was the only one. People see the "H" on the hubcap and ask me if it is a Hudson? When I say Hupmobile, thet then ask "A Hup what?". When new, the sales information stated it was capable of speeds of 70 MPH. When asked how fast it will go, I usually say I drive about 55 in the interstate and 50 in 2 lane highways. Then they ask "Will it really go
  7. Two years ago, I purchase a new aftermarket cruse control unit, installed, on a Ford Focus for $300.00. The desirability of your unit depends on the application. Is the buyer going to use it on a driver and not judge it, or as a trailer queen for show only, or something in between? You didn't say if the unit is operational or if the condition shows usage and age. Photos will be a great help in establishing the value.
  8. What is the outside diameter of your carb? There is an air cleaner on ebay with an inside diameter of 1 5/8 inch. He is located about 30 miles away in Voorheesville. Send him a message that you will pick it up and pay cash, see what he says. The ebay Item number is: 150637758137 & the link is: 1930 1928 1929 1920s Air Cleaner Ford Dodge Chevy NOS? | eBay
  9. Measure the wheel hub with a set of calipers. If the hub is 16 threads to the inch and the diameter is 2 1/2 inches, I have a wheel puller for you. http://forums.aaca.org/f119/wheel-puller-2-1-2-inch-304043.html
  10. I agree with everything posted to date. To cover Hershey, plan on about a 22 mile hike. My brother & I cover it in 3 1/2 days. Plan on about 7 miles daily from 8:00 am to 5:30. Hershey is approximately 1 1/2 miles long by 1/2 mile wide with 10,000 or so vendor spots. I brought my 21 year old nephew to Hershey in 2001 and all he could tell his dad was "I can't describe it, you have to go". RESTORER32 is correct, it is very addicting. The following link is for the swap meet information. Hershey Region AACA: Fall Meet Maps & Information Go to the following link to see an overview o
  11. My experience is people asking for price usually have no idea of the car's value. I will quote a price double what it will take to duplicate the vehicle. Sometimes I plead stupidity and tell them the fair price is when the seller thinks they are giving it away and the buyer thinks the seller is out of his mind. Then they chuckle and leave. The best answer I have heard for a looker was "A dollar $2.98".
  12. Under the Germans, the French converted trucks to burn wood as gas was in very short supply. This truck ran on wood fuel. I don't know how they converted the truck to run from gas to wood fuel. After Paris was liberated, he was stationed in Paris with the military post office. His actual duty was to drive a 6 by 6 mail truck from Paris to the front lines and back. I believe I have a photo of him with the truck.
  13. I am not surprised the teenagers handled driving manual transmission cars. With a little incentive most can learn to drive a shift car very well. In 1990 I purchased a 1988 Hyundia with a manual 5 speed for my 17 year old daughter. I took Stacy out for 2 hours before super and a friend did 2 more hours in the evening. She drove to school the next day and did the bunny hop for a week or so but the car survived. Seven months later she was hit in an intersection and the car was totaled. Her replacement request was 4 doors, A/C, and a manual transmission. I actually found a 1990 year old Fo
  14. I maybe confused, is this being paid by your collision insurance or is this being covered by the other driver's liability insurance? I am not in California but in Ohio and here this would be covered by the other driver's liability insurance. As such, they do not have the right to tell you where it will be fixed of if they can total it. Does California have a type of no-fault insurance where your company reimburses you even if it is the other driver's fault? Can someone clarify this?
  15. Do I understand you, the other driver was at fault. It sounds like you were hit from behind and pushed into the car in front of you. If this is the case, you are liable for the damage to the car in front of you. The driver that hit you is liable for the damage to your car and the amount charged you to fix the car in front. If they don't pay, the person who hit you can have their license suspended until you sign a waiver stating you have received your money. Most states require financial responsibility to keep a drivers license after an accident. Am I correct the $30,000 covers your coll
  16. Your comment about: My wife wants to go back to see the bridges of Madison County. Winterset is the county seat of Madison County & 40 miles south west of Des Moines. Your wife should enjoy site seeing the area. http://www.madisoncounty.com/index.php?page=the-bridges July 1st - 3rd, at the fairgrounds on the east side of Des Moines, The Good Guys car show will be held with many antique but mostly hot rods on display. http://www.heartlandnats.com/ An interesting side trip is to Pella, just 40 miles east of Des Moines. Very important, do not go on Sunday or a holiday, everything i
  17. There is one on ebay, the number is 110705734440. Hershey in Oct will have restored ones and you can find them on ebay. I have one on my car for show but have gutted it. I use an electric fuel pump next to the gas tank.
  18. This is a "For Sale" sales pitch. I believe this is the kind of vehicle being described as a decent first car. It is a 1953 Willys Aero (ACE) automobile built by the company that also built the Willy Jeep. Willys built 102,000 between 1952 & 1955. Most mechanical parts are interchangeable with the jeep. This is a running car I have driven 3,500 miles in the last 3 years. It has 60,700 miles as of June 23rd and I will put another 100 miles this Sat on a club tour. I have taken it to one local car show, it received a 1st place in 1960 to 1959 class. I look at it as a touring car and d
  19. The original owner used this 1940 Ford 15 years to tow his fishing boat. The ball size 1 1/2 inch and showed signs of much use. It was purchased by the 2nd owner in 1967 with the trailer hitch already installed. The photos were taken in April 2008 when I removed it from his garage. I sold it in Aug of 2009 with new tires, new fuel system, complete brakes, other things to get it running. The current owner has installed a complete wiring system, new seals on windshield, including passenger side headlight and tail light assemblies. This car has the original paint and interior, a true survi
  20. Ed sells at Hershey in the fall. Try him at: Ed Baines 5528 Holmes Dr NW Canton OH 44718 330 494 9763
  21. Yes, I was on I-675 about 11:30 today, only take the trailer when I show the car. I-675 is a 6 lane and allows me keep right with lost of room to be passed. Surprisingly the local traffic really likes to see the car going 50 to 55. Heading to see a fellow about adding seat belts. Three in back and 2 in front.
  22. I have reduced the price to $20.00. I can ship it as required or deliver it to Hershey in October.
  23. The car is black with black fenders. The color options were Black, Dark Blue, Maroon, or Dark Green but all cars had black fenders.
  24. Tire is a CUSTOM CLASSIC 650 X 19 with a 6 ply rating. $20.00 Tire is currently sold new by Lucas Classic Tires for $185. I used it as a spare tire always covered. Flat tire required use once in 10 years for 50 miles. Tread depth is 100%. Tire will make a great spare tire. This has been my touring car and I wore the tread down in 16,000 miles. I changed to a different tread pattern this tire doesn't match the new ones. Located in Dayton, OH
