  1. Welcome Aboard Matey. This is a good place to hang out and a great place make new friends. Dandy Dave!
  2. 35 inch is rather hard to find a spreader that works as most are for Model T Fords and don't open that far. My 1915 Buick has 26 inch rims and the rim size on early cars can go as large as 27. So when looking at spreaders be sure you get one that opens far enough. The thing that works the best is one of these. It is a Weaver tire machine from the early years of autos. It is the only thing I found that makes the job easy. Dandy Dave!
  3. The Story of Uncle Sam. It all started in a City about 30 miles north of me. .
  4. Memorial Day. To all who serve, and to those who have served. I salute thee. Thank You for your service. Today is a day to remember the real Hero's. The ones that went forth in the face of danger and did not come home. The ones who laid down their lives whither on the battlefield, in the air, or on the sea. Today is a day to reflect on their sacrifice to keep the American Idea of Freedom alive and spread that idea throughout the world to free enslaved nations from tyrants where ever they may be. Remember, All gave some, and Some gave all. All so we could have this day, and this Great Nation we live in. Thank You.
  5. Glad to hear it has been recovered. Hopefully as it was before the incident. 😀
  6. Also, there is a Chevy parts truck not far from here that you can have for the taking if you want it. It is ruff but things like the carburetor and distributor are still on it. No radiator though. Parts is parts. I'll take a little ride and get some photos if you like. Dandy Dave!
  7. Wow. 🤪 🙃🤩 Agree. Leave it alone cosmetically. Do what you have to do to get it up and running and safe and just enjoy this time capsule from the Dirty Thirties. Very cool. My old unrestored model 15 White draws a crowd like flies to cow flop. People just past by all the shiny vehicles that thousand were spent on just to see it in it's working clothes. I've had crowds as large as 30 or 40 just watching it sit there and run, and it will just sit and idle for hours at a show and not over heat. Dandy Dave!
  8. I found out that there is a big Following of these old Reed Vises. And there is a month and year stamped in many. This one was stamped 347. Which is march of 1947. I put it on a piece of I beam this week and have been putting it to good use. Going to build some swinging and adjustable outriggers to stabilize it side to side so it will be movable and take up less space when not in use. Weighs 185 LBS. Dandy Dave!
  9. Yeah. Good advice above. I have an original for my 1915 C-36 Buick. Dandy Dave!
  10. Thieves of this magnitude should be hung by the neck until dead. Pisses me off to no end. Sorry to hear and will keep an eye open while looking around the web. Also by chance on the road even though I'm at the other side of NYS. Dandy Dave!
  11. Pete would have loved that Truck. It would have been right up his alley. I did mention it to him one time a few years before I bought it and his advice was to go get it.
  12. Actually I had it at the ATCA 50th anniversary National last year at Macungie PA. That was a fantastic show.
  13. I believe it would. However, I move it in my enclosed trailer as it is rather fragile and I believe it would take a beating with the wind against it.
  14. Nice Collectable. I had quite a toy collection at one time. I sold it and bought the 15 Buick. Would like to see the tractor that tows it.
  15. We have a local Hydraulic supply and repair place not far from here. Mooradian Hydraulics. Their waiting list on cylinder repair is rather long. They have quite a stack of them lined up. I have done enough business there to get to know Dick and Tom. It is a lot faster to get the rod and seals and just do the machining myself. The rod was around $225. They're good guys and the place has an amazing amount or stuff on the shelves. Here's a link. http://www.mooradianhydraulics.com/
