  1. My Maxwell turns 111 this year and I intend to throw it a party, assuming I have it in running condition this summer... I wonder which of us will drink more that day?
  2. I really liked that movie, but thought them calling the mineral unobtanium was a little tacky, only because we had been using the word to describe car parts for so long before it came out.
  3. I think the most smiles per dollar you can get in this hobby happens behind the wheel of a model T or Model A. If speed is a need, Model A. I am also 6’4” and fitting in either can be an issue. On the A, look at Tudor sedans and the slant windshields, they offer pretty good space. You will be able to fit and drive any A... but the Tudor will be easiest. For me the issue on most model A body styles is the lack of room for my leg between the shifter and steering wheel when in reverse or first gear.... taking a few inches off the shifter is a couple hour project that fixes the issue an
  4. my teen daughter drives a 2006 Hyundai Tucson that I gave the paltry sum of $1,500 for.... It is an appliance more than an automobile and I hate driving it.... but... somehow it has become the most reliable car in our fleet.... I would give the square body burb to the tank!
  5. Likely a wise decision. The 56 4 door hardtop is my favorite of the tri five bowties, but what that car needs compared to what a good driver cost... you would have to enjoy the work as much as the driving... and I do not.
  6. Nah, I was with a non car guy the first time he saw one... called it a back to the future car.
  7. Generally speaking, yes they are and should be. From my youth I recall the term “good faith money” often times a small amount in comparison to the deal at hand, in other words, a deposit. I have seen the money returned when a deal didn’t complete, but only under circumstances where “good faith” was still present. Everybody has a story and it would be up to the guy holding the cash to decide how he feels about that. If a guy handed me money on a Sunday with the promise to show up next Saturday with a trailer and the agreed balance but lost his job or even just lost the transmission on his truc
  8. You could buy it and let Ed know he can’t play with it until you get the Stearns back.
  9. For me it was my first set of brass era tires. All of my drug knowledge comes from Willie Nelson cameos in movies, so I don’t know how much of anything you can get for $3,000... but I assume it is a lot.
  10. December of 1915 was a huge production month for all auto manufacturers, they needed to get the 16 models ready.... or so I have told myself every time I look at anything built in 1916.
  11. The 1922 pikes peak racing claim is interesting. If the vintage racing history is verifiable beyond the photos provided, the bidding was a little low, if it claims don’t hold up (and it sure does not look like the same car to me), all the money in the world and then some was bid.
