  2. Sublet (Rent) 1-6 GREAT spaces (for a VERY REASONABLE COST - NO premium), right in the middle of this week's Fall Carlisle Flea Market on CORVETTE (I) ROW - the "main street" for the whole Fall Carlisle Flea Market.

  4. And, of course, Sears sold Automobiles - high wheelers - in the pre teens era and of course also sold Henry J's and european motorcycles in the postwar (WW2) era under the Allstate brand name.
  5. Hello Steve - Sears never made ANYTHING, except perhaps money, at least they USED TO MAKE MONEY!!!.........LOL... As for the motorcycles they sold in the teens and preteens era, these were "badge engineered" versions of other manufacturers bikes, often times "leftovers" or year old machines built but unsold by motorcycle manufacturers. I believe most Sears bikes had Spaacke motors which were quite large displacement motors (for the time) - i.e. 1200cc - 1.2 liter - 75 cu. in. twins and purportedly VERY, VERY fast for the era - 80 mph machines in an era of single wheel drum or coaster brakes.
  6. My friend, an experienced old car hobbyist/restorer/transporter can (enclosed) transport 1 car (or 2 Model T’s or small cars) from the East Coast (Northeast) WESTBOUND to the Midwest, Southwest or West Coast THIS WEEK leaving Tues/Wed 3/31-4/1. He'll do a GREAT JOB & is VERY REASONABLY PRICED. He moves my cars & this is the return trip. Herb Singe 908-868-4006 olcarherb@juno.com
  7. I hope you'll write about the REAL winner of the 1911 500, Ralph Mulford driving a LOZIER, despite the heroic efforts of Ray Harroun driving the hometown MARMON (Wasp) who became the pollically correct and economically wise choice of the Indianapolis stewards and judges.
  8. Hi guys - I was there - great show as usual - one of the VERY BEST in the country. Some (about 12-15) GREAT brass era cars - both American and quite a few early Ghosts - due undoubtedly to the Millenium RR tour starting immediately after the concours, 3 Mercer Raceabouts - 2 T heads and an early '20's L head, also about a dozen ('50's - early '60's Watson, Kurtis etc.) Indy Roadsters, some kool looking '60's - 2000's concept cars - the Orbitron, the Chip Foose designed Hemisphere etc. and the typical high class European and American iron that always graces the Ritz Carlton golf course each ye
  9. Hi Bill - I have some ideas and experience in this area. We (my Dad & I) converted a 5200 s.f. brick commercial building into our private "museum" about 8-10 years ago. And I've visited scores of private collections over the past 2 decades. I'd be happy to share my thoughts with you privately over the phone. Please email me your phone # to olcarherb@juno.com so we can talk as I HATE typing......................aghhhhhhhhh!!!.......Herb Singe (Jr.)
  10. My friend, an experienced old car hobbyist/restorer and transporter can transport in his enclosed trailer 1 large car (or 2 Model T’s or small cars) from the east coast / northeast to the midwest or west coast in April at your convenience. He does a great job, and is very reasonably priced (much less than the 18 wheelers). He moves my cars and this is the return trip. Herb Singe, 973-786-7200 olcarherb@juno.com
  11. Another friend, also an experienced old car hobbyist/restorer can (enclosed) transport 1 car from the Chickasha Oklahoma swap meet or nearby area to the Southeast USA or from the Chickasha area or the Southeast USA to the West Coast. He also does a great job & is reasonably priced. This the rest of his trip after bringing my car to Chickasha. Herb Singe, 973-786-7200 olcarherb@juno.com
  12. A 3rd friend, also an experienced old car hobbyist/restorer can transport 1 or 2 cars from the East Coast (Northeast) to the Midwest or West Coast in March, April or May at your convenience. He’ll do a great job and is also reasonably priced. He’s moving my cars and this is the return trip. Herb Singe, 973-786-7200 olcarherb@juno.com
  13. Hello - If you're still looking to move the car west, perhaps my friend could help within the next month or two. Herb Singe 973-786-7200

  16. Yes that's typical Bob. I believe every one of his customers has a similar (GOOD) experience. I know we have recently. Herb

  18. Hello - Does anyone know someone who might be interested in transporting a medium sized, unrestored but clean 1907 touring car from the Chickasha OK. meet in March to the Northeast (Conn. would be ideal but we'll settle for N.J., N.Y., Penna. or ???). Please contact me at olcarherb(NO SPAM)@juno.com Thanks guys Herb

  21. My guess is that this machine represents some "inventor's" (perhaps the man in front???) idea of the "next best thing" circa 1908-1914 or so, that never got off the ground(ie became commercially viable), probably due to lowering of the price for the Model T Ford during the early - mid teens, an event that spelled doom not only for many such "ideas", but also for most of the remaining motorcycle firms and a number of car companies as well. The machine, which appears "used", in fact, "well used" was just the sort that a financially challenged, yet mechanically innovative young man (nowadays I'd
  22. Just called up a fellow who placed a classified ad in this issue for some memorabilia and a motorcycle part I would have liked to have had. Both were sold to others responding to the ad a couple of days ago, BEFORE I got my Antique Automobile.
  23. Just checked with the Hampton Inn you listed as the $44 rate seemed too good to be true(I've never seen ANY Hampton lower than the mid to high $50's in the last few years, and they're usually A LOT higher - typically $89-109 with AAA or AARP and WITHOUT a major event in the area. $144 would sound more like it, but I never found out as that Hampton in Camp Hill on the west shore of the Susquehanna had no availability for the Tuesday through Friday nights of Hershey. Didn't try any of the others as we're all set, but that $44 rate intrigued me!!! BTW, how much is a double queen room (suite???
  24. All of the above is well said and EXACTLY right to the point. Staying in Hershey will cost about $200- $250 per room a night (typically with a three or four night minimum), 10-20 miles away (Harrisburg/Grantville/Lebanon, etc.) $100-150 a night and over 20 miles away (west shore of Harrisburg/Mechanicsburg/Carlisle/York/Lancaster etc.) will typically run from $40-100 a night - the farther away the cheaper the room. Rooms can be had in Carlisle, about 30 miles west and 45-60 minutes away (depending upon traffic) in the $50-70 range during Hershey week. In fact, I know some "bargain hunters"
