  1. With the 20's & 30's cars usually drive with a reproduction cap verses a holy grail - also the cap tends to be hot as ... from driving when you park the car, so I give it some thought ahead of time as to which ornament is on the car as I do not want to wait for it to cool off. My RR Cap for driving - A Desmo Scotty
  2. I am forward thinking - we never go in reverse (most of the cars I have you cannot see a thing out of looking rearward). Otherwise, I really do not care what it is or how much it is worth, it is just a car and the only reason we have them is because I enjoy them (art goes on the walls and cars go on the street).
  3. I have had tops done by this company: That being said, this company has a kit top and Putt Georgi owns the business and and he knows his stuff (they may be wholesale though, but easy enough to find someone with an account if that is the case) : http://www.aro2000.com/ http://www.aro2000.com/203_installed.htm
  4. There is an hour long Chasing Classic Cars episode out there somewhere regarding the Minerva: Preview https://watch.motortrend.com/tv-shows/chasing-classic-cars/videos/hawkeyes-minerva Ralph is a good sport - he pushes cars on the London to Brighton and he was changing wheels on a Studebaker in this past weeks episode.
  5. Not much interchanges, but a few parts do via such as a 1930. What year car are you working on - there is a lot of very knowledgeable people here that are always willing to help ?
  6. Sidenote: I had probably the last NOS unit on the globe and then had Arthur Gould rebuild that - and put $400.00 into it in perhaps 2001.
  7. Did Ned Wright in Columbus, OH use to own this car - if so it was quite the performer on tours ?
  8. Perfect car for someone to get into antique car hobby ! Worst case scenario is upgrade it a little and then set it free for the next owner to enjoy.
  9. Always pleasurable reads ! I had a subscription for a while back in the 90's.
  10. That is perhaps a different story: Someone taped over the the filler neck or the fuel gauge sending unit and then someone on the "bad egg" side gave the cause a little help.
  11. A little too much Blah Blah Blah talking for the sake of having nothing to say matched to too many commercials. Also, some editing is poorly done (still photos flashing up that have absolutely nothing to do with the conversation - ex. watched the one on the 770 Mercedes and they were flashing nickle era Pierce Arrow dash photos) - may not be noticeable to average Joe on the street or when watching it live, but record it and watch. Interesting topics though.

  13. F&W is here in Cincinnati - not to offend anyone who owns one, though their reputation around these parts tends to be anyone with a good used 1965 Ford Mustang 6 Cylinder that perhaps goes to one car show a year was a "god" (or goddess) of antique car hobby (and I hear the same stereotype as to many of their other publications as well - and have heard it for years now) - true or not I have no idea, but that is what I hear. I do know that I have sitting on a shelf an October 1, 1971, Old Cars Weekly - their very first issue and it is 100 times better than the past 10 years combined.
  14. Call Hirsch. That being said, this company has a kit top and Putt Georgi owns the business and and he knows his stuff (they may be wholesale though, but easy enough to find someone with an account if that is the case) : http://www.aro2000.com/ http://www.aro2000.com/203_installed.htm Or call: www.acmeautoheadlining.com/ Somebody should make one driver quality and probably takes some detective work. Sidenote: You probably could have bought one via Lebanon Bonney had they not filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy this week.
