  1. I recently missed going to my 55th high school reunion banquet by missing the 5 week cut off date by 3 weeks. Well, I will not miss the next one in 5 years. Actually, the AACA tour organizers always want as many attendees as possible. The organizers are limited by the ability to handle large crowds. Hotel rooms, restaurant availability, restrooms, banquet availability, and locations to visit parking lot size are limiting factors. If you over tax the ability to handle the touring members, it becomes a bad tour. Setting the cut off date always seems long before the tour starts. The cate
  2. August of 2008, I had the intake & exhaust manifolds coated using their power coating process called "Armor Coating". The exhaust has faded a little as shown in the the photo but the intake is as originally delivered. I have driven the car 8,500 miles in the last 7 years.

  3. I have a shut off valve very similar but with a different handle. Send me a PM if interested
  4. In the late 50's I had a high school friend with a 49 or 50 Ford flat head V8. When we went on a trip of over 100 miles, he would run a mixture of about 3 parts gas to 1 part kerosene. Gas was $.29 and kerosene was $.10. It seemed to run good on the highway but smoked a little and some times it was a little hard to start. I don't remember him ever having engine problems, he probably drove it 30 or 40 thousand miles in 2 years or so. I lost track of him after high school & he could have driven it through college.
  5. The American Sign Museum is a non profit organization in Cincinnati, OH. They are dedicated to restoring, preserving, & maintaining advertizing signs. I have been there on a local car tour. Try contacting them to see if they can display the sign. Check out their web page for additional information. http://www.americansignmuseum.org/
  6. You haven't indicated why you want a brass car. Is a $400,000 Rolls Royce really worth the money when a new Buick will drive you in similar comfort? The same answer applies to a 100 year old car. It is the desirability of a car model and condition that drives the price. I know of a gray 1913 Stevens Durea that drives very nice available for about $175,000. It is a big car and drives like one. You can also purchase a 1909-1914 Hupmobile Model 20 for $20,000 or so in restored condition. This is a small 2 passenger car that runs about 30 MPR. Keep in mind that most brass cars only have
  7. The Ohio Region, including the Canton Chapter plus 6 other chapters are having their quarterly tour May 1st, 2nd, & 3rd of May. We are staying at the Schoenbrunn Inn 1186 West High Ave New Philadelphia, OH 44663 There will over 30 cars and maybe 50 or so there. People will be arriving Friday afternoon & evening. There will be a gathering at the Breitenbach Winery just west of Dover in the afternoon. Saturday there will be an all day tour till around 3 or 4 PM and then back to the hotel for the evening event. It should be a good time to make a contact with someone from the Canton c
  8. If you have not drive the route, post your starting city, destination, and your estimated route. Someone here may know of a road to avoid or a better way around a problem. As example if you are traveling west on I-70 and switching to I-74 at Indianapolis, take I-69 north to the town of Labanon and west on RT 32 to I-74. It is a little longer but you avoid the Indi traffic. Take any cleaning supplies you don't want to purchase at the show. Check your lights before the day you leave. Take maps plus a GPS or iphone if you get off your route.
  9. Our house has the 2 car garage in the back of the house. This requires us to drive up the driveway, make an 180 degree turn to drive into the garage. When the 2nd garage was built, the door is 50 ft from the house at the end of the driveway. It is actually a pole barn design with 4 X 4 posts every 4 feet with outdoor paneling and a cement floor.. It was build 22 years ago and looks as good as new. New roof and repainted as needed. My suggestion is to move the garage at least 35 to 40 feet behind the house if you can.
  10. Unlike 12 volt batteries, stores usually only sell one 6 volt car battery. Measure the space for the battery just to make sure the new battery is not too large. I have the best luck using a battery from "TRACTOR SUPPLY", get one for a tractor. Make sure you get 6 volt battery cables, 12 volt cables are too small.
  11. Are you willing to ship across the country. If not, let us know what city you are near and how close do you want the shop to be.
  12. Go to ebay and do a search on the book "three men and a hupp". It is an interesting book and describes the capabilities of the Hupmobile. The model 32 came out as a 1911 and as a sales promotion, three men drove it around the world. The left Detroit driving west to San Francisco in November of 1910. The were on the road for 14 months making sales calls to promote the new model. Their car had no front doors, top or windshield. They arrived in New York in 13 months later for the NY car show. They drove the car to Detroit for their show a month later through a blizzard sometimes only covering 5
  13. Do a google search 'Teardrop Trailer' or 'Mullins trailer tent'. The teardrop trailer has been built since before WWII and you can find them for sale on ebay. They are a small trailer with a hatchback opening on the back with a complete setup for a kitchen. If you want to real primitive, buy an original Mullins Trailer with a tail gate. They are a little hard to find as there were only a total of 2,000 trailers made from 1936 to 1937. There is a member in the Mullins club that makes reproduction camping tents for them. In the club newsletter, there are usually one or two for sale alon
  14. If you modify the car to make a custom or personalized car, look what range a completed car will sell for. The following is currently advertized on Craigs List in Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus OH
  15. I live 240 miles from you, I am sure you will find some one local. Ten years ago my daughters best friend was married & I was requested to take them from the wedding to the reception. The photographer charged a flat fee to take all the photos and charged by each photo printed. He must have taken 25 photos of the car and another 250 or so of everyone he could get to stand still. I am including a couple of photos I took while he was working.
  16. Do you need a truck or do just want a pickup? If you just want a truck, ignore any advice you might glean from my comments. It's 2,000 plus miles to Seattle and about 70 hours round trip driving time. If you only need the truck to haul the Lincoln between posts, a good commercial hauler should be cheaper. The Lincolns were great road cars and they would run 60 miles an hour forever. Unless you wish to avoid putting miles on the car, you shouldn't need a trailer. My brother has a 2008 Dodge 2500 diesel and it will pull 5,000 pounds without effort in the mountains central of PA.
  17. What city are you near and how many magazines do you have?
  18. I don't remember where I copied the following but it is interesting reading. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:PunctuationKerning/> <w:ValidateAgainstSchemas/> <w:SaveIfXMLInvalid>false</w:SaveIfXMLInvalid> <w:IgnoreMixedContent>false</w:IgnoreMixedContent> <w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText>false</w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText> <w:Compatibility> <w:BreakWrap
  19. At Hershey in 2003, I saw a license plate sign that read, "Attention officer, the car has a speedometer". I lived in Iowa in the 50's & they did not have a speed limit until about 1959. Up until then the official wording was "Reasonable and Proper". If you were stopped by a cop, you got a ticket for reckless driving. Ohio sold the speed limit by putting a point system in place with 3 points for a speeding ticket and 10 pints for reckless driving. You lost your license for the first reckless driving but you had to get 4 speeding tickets in 12 months to loose your license. 70 MPH was
  20. If you want it, I have the formula for the green paint for your engine. In the restoration forum, several years ago a man documented his restoration of his 1929 Hupmobile. Check out efforts under "1929 Hupmobile" in the restoration forum. Use the following link to get there. http://forums.aaca.org/f190/1929-hupmobile-project-246532.html
