  1. Try looking for a restoration shop with an "English Wheel", D & D are not close but they will do it correctly. They can build a new fender if needed. They have restored winning cars at Pebble Beach. D&D Classic 2300 Mote Dr. Covington, Ohio 45318 937.473.2229 http://www.ddclassic.com/index.html
  2. The Historical Society in Lebanon, Ohio moved the Shell station and restored it 10 or 15 years ago. They have it set up so you can pull off the street to take photos. When I took this photo, the local cop stopped to watch, waved, and drove on with a smile.
  3. MAC's Auto Parts, Model A Catalog sells the Bendix Starter Drive. You can purchase Spring for 7.95 or the whole starter drive (American) for 39.95, plus shipping. You should be able to pick up the parts at most Model A parts store.
  4. I have a 2 5/8 bell shaped wheel puller for $50.00 plus UPS shipping. If you are interested, I can get the shipping cost. If it doesn't work, send it back plus a stamped envelope & I will return the $50. You can also wait and return it to me at Hershey.
  5. Photo was taken in the late 70's or early 80's. I believe the photo as taken in New Hampshire for a 4th of July parade. Is it a factory built or a custom roadster?
  6. First, what ever anyone else or myself tell you, someone will break the rule with success. I pull a 3,000 pound 1931 sedan (driver) on a 2,000 pound open trailer with a 2006 1500 Chevrolet Extended Cab and a 5.3 engine. The 5.3 engine will pull the truck, trailer and car up interstate hills in 3rd gear when needed, normally I run in 4th gear. I use an equalizer hitch to reduce trailer bounce and better stability. I also use a cap on the bed reducing some headwind. I always tow with the "Trailer" button on the end of the shifter pushed in, Changes the shift points b
  7. I pull a 3,000 pound car on a 2,000 pound open trailer with an extended cab Chevrolet 1/2 ton (1500). It pulls acceptable but I would upgrade to a 3/4 ton with an enclosed trailer. I know someone who pulls a 24 ft enclosed trailer & a 3,000 pound car with a 1/2 ton F-150 Ford without problems. You will be more comfortable pulling a 24 ft closed trailer. A 20 foot will work but things will be tighter inside. Plan on buying Hold Down Straps. I run the straps from the floor loops to the axels. You can also use ones that go around the wheels.
  8. The video appears to show him putting it in 1st gear of a 4 speed trans. My assumption is it also has a limited slip rear end. This works well when one wheel has good traction. If you have ever tried to drive on snow, you will know to keep your foot out of the throttle. My guess is the driver wasn't experienced with driving a manual. At 16, my father required me to release the parking brake slowly and slide the clutch in 1st so the car didn't go forward or backward. It still hurts to watch the video.
  9. Go to Crags List, Nashville TN. As of Feb 5, there are two 1965 Monza Convertibles for sale The red one is a 4 speed.
  10. Don't bother with State Farm even with inside locked storage.. As I was finishing up a 67 Mustang, they would not provide Antique Insurance rate until it was drivable. To get comprehensive Ins, I had to purchase regular insurance.
  11. The Ohio Region consists of seven chapters. Each Chapter usually has a monthly tour from April through October with gatherings at a restaurant some of the other months. Three times a year, April/May, July, & October we have an OHIO Region weekend tour hoisted by a chapter. Attendance at the Region Tours are open to everyone. October of 2016 we met in Logan, OH in the Hocking Hills area. We will be having the May 2017 Region tour the weekend of May 5-7 at Painsville OH at the Quail Hollow Resort. Friday, we will have an early bird tour to Fairpo
  12. Find a local shop that relines brakes for fork lifts.
  13. I am 74 & I show a 85 year old car. I must look really old as I get the question "Did You buy it new?" At first I would say no then I would say "Think about it" and now I just smile and reply "Yes". Some people realize my condescending answer to a stock question. Yes, I get pushy people who want to know it's worth by asking what I want for it.. My answer is a value of 5 to 10 thousand above the price. Then I just ignore further inquires. The question of "How do you value an older car?" gets the following answer. The price is close whe
  14. It is unfortunate to have to deal with bureaucrats at the DMV, I wish you the best of luck. Is it possible you may have selected the wrong state to live? There are a few non paved roads in the SE corner but almost all of the state and county roads are paved. Many states assign license plates to a car and expect the owner to in effect, lease the plates from the state. I know of a state where modern plates must be rented each year or put in the DMV storage. If you don't put them in storage for say 4 years, you must pay the current year plus the back years registration
  15. I am bringing the jig and parts to make the door latches for a 1923 Paige touring. Not sure what other cars or years can use them. Location C4V # 22 close to pole # 33.
  16. We will be at C4V - 22 near light pole # 33 in the North Chocolate field with some Hupmobile Model S parts. Will also have a collection of other things to get out of the garage. Also bringing old copies of the Antique Automobile Magazine priced by the pound with very deep discounts for kids. We expect to arrive after 12 on Tuesday. We will have a chair or so to share but you must say you saw this web page.
  17. I will have it shipped as needed. If anyone is coming near Dayton or Cincinnati. let me know. I was guessing I had a better shot with Hershey.
  18. Is it possible for someone to pickup the dash in Fayetteville, Ga and meet me at the Hershey Swap Meet? It is a 4 foot Dash similar to the one below. Fayetteville is south of the Atlanta. It is 12 miles south of I-285 by pass and between I-75 & I-85. It is 5 miles east of I-85 and 15 miles west of I-75 I will be in the North Chocolate field near light pole 33. I will be more than happy to come to your location to pick it up. Jack 937 287-8466

  20. I have done weddings & receptions but only for friends. I have enjoyed every wedding and will do it again. The difficulty with your request is time and cost.

One hour of driving the car will also include: 30 minutes - Washing and cleaning the car inside and out 2 Hours - Driving to and from event & arriving during wedding 30 Minutes - time for photographer to take photos My car gets 10 MPG and a 75 mile trip will cost $17.00 in gas.

  22. Do an ebay search on "chair-lock". This is a product to cause wood to swell, it does work on wood spokes. The product was developed to use on wooden kitchen chairs when the wood fitting gets loose.
