  1. Because The HAMB has standards and OT vehicles and talk of them are quickly deleted by the mods
  2. Chassis made of old bedframes. When I worked at Warner Bros. in Burbank, a guy used to ride one to work often. It was a very cool bike, a modern antique
  3. Description 1931 Buick Bentley limousine in great condition needs finishing. New seats new canvas roof.engine was running 2 years ago when I parked it .body is mint no holes and no bondo all wood including the wheels is perfect . $10 500 O.B.O. call willis @519 716 2600 Reminds me of the 80s when a bunch of early 50s Bentleys found their way here. One, a real rust bucket, ended up at our shop. It needed serious engine work and major rot repairs. Thw owner annopunced that he wanted us to do "THE CONVERSION"?????? Soon a box shows up from a noted RR guy in SoCal a buddy of Jay Leno and builder of odd ball giant cars. I'll call him GW. In he box is a cheezy looking RR radiator shell and a batch of shitty stickers with the RR logo to cover the B on the hubcaps and the Bentley script on the rocker cover. When installed it looked just like a Rolls from a distance.............................. of a mile!?!?! GW was kind enough to stop by, in person, to pick up the flawless original shell, big Lucas driving lamp badge bar with assorted badges, all of which were "cores" for "THE CONVERSION" I don't know if RR filed action though they should have put out a contract
  4. I have to return to my first love. when I became interested in old cars at 12 years of age I loved them all but it's always been big and brass for me .probably a 6 60 Thomas Flyer.
  5. Still living in the house. he is famous for his invention and for being over200 years old. His patents were purchased by Ebeneezer Screwdriver. Much later R&B singer Piercy Sledge boughtE. Screwdriver Inc. With the fortune that he accumulated from the sales of his eponymous hammer
  6. I guess I am living in a different world than so many vets. it's been over 50 years since I stepped onto the tarmac at El Toro. Not one time since have I felt even the slightest bit of disrespect from anyone regarding my service. I have always received the finest treatment from the VA. Never been spit on or called a name and this was mostly in liberal SoCal, no less
  7. Every year,it's the same old rant from the Vietnam vets. ,we didn't get our parade ".guess what? There was no VJ Day andJohnny didn't come marching home. We came back a plane load at a time. of course there was no fanfare. my folks drove from north Hollywood to El Toro MCAS and picked me up and drove me home. Pretty good parade I think. My GF and now my wife of 50 years waited at the homecoming ever. Doc 1st Battalion 1st Marines RVN 67 68 Still glad to be back in the world
  8. Rotary tables are typically used on mills and drill presses not sure how or why you would set one up on a lathe
  9. Do you mean the gear position indicator?
  10. Not sure what your ultimate goal is. What is wrong with the 42 frame? Is it rotted out or bent or butchered,?
  11. Sell!!! Old wagons are very hot right now
  12. I hate to be overly pedantic but Ford built "tudors". That Chevy is a two door
  13. Bad enough to walk past my bike every day, Kills me😭. Seeing a Doozie parked in the garage would be much worse
