  1. I am researching the Rollin Motors Company of Cleveland, OH, ca: 1922 - 1926. Apparently, Rolls Royce sued Rollin for trademark infringement about 1923 - 1924. This is a story I've been told, but I cannot document it. Do any of the Rolls Royce experts out there know about this? The image of Rollin's logo comes from a 1923 trade catalogue. This is part of the book I am writing about the White Steam Car. Rollin White invented the flash steam generator used in the White Steam Car, then in later life created the Rollin. Thank you very much.
  2. For Sale: Weed Bumper. Excellent original condition. Weighs about 35 pounds, 5' long, with mounting brackets. $450.00 FOB Dallas, TX
  3. Does anyone have an original of this image? Ormond / Daytona Beach, Third International World Championships January 23 - 28, 1905. The photo credits "The Museum of Speed," but this organization no longer exists. Any help greatly appreciated. I am writing a book on the White Steam Car. Thanks very much!

  4. Vintage Steam Products did not get the surveys. Please send again. Thank you. I strongly believe Hershey 2020 should proceed this fall. If some people decide not to come, I respect their decisions. But by by October, we'll know so much more about COVID 19 and how to deal with it. There should be no problem keeping a "social distance" from people.
  5. For Sale: Two Double Row Ball Bearings. Measurements: OD 98 MM = 3.842" ID 50 MM = 1.965" Wide 30 MM = 1.180" Excellent Condition. I put them in the rear end of my 1925 Stanley Steam Car, not realizing I needed sealed bearings! They have less than 20 miles on them. They fit easily into the Stanley rear end, no pressing!

  6. I need to have a closed trailer with a car in it moved from Chambersburg, PA to Dallas, TX, sometime in mid to late August. The Trailer is a 30' Tommy's Aluminum trailer, and will require a 3/4 ton pickup truck. There is no room in the trailer for anything else. Distance: About 1,350 miles. All interstate. Roughly 20 hours of driving. Thanks very much.
  7. Desperately Need Five Yards of Olive Green Mohair. Same as Hirsch 144-G to finish 1925 Stanley Restoration. The first upholsterer wasted . . . NEVER MIND! If you have as much as a yard, It would be a tremendous help. Thank you. I've attached the old Hirsch Mohiar sample card. He no longer carries the 144-G. Call Don Hoke or contact through VIntage Steam Products or the Virtual Steam Car Museum.
  8. Good Morning. This car sold about 18 months ago. Thanks for inquiring. I am looking for a White Steam Car.
  9. Good Morning, Larry! I have indeed contacted the AACA Library. Chris Ritter and his staff do an exceptional job. I've used the library on numerous occasions. Chris has things meticulously organized, highly professional. I cannot wait for the new facility to open in a few years.
  10. Good Afternoon, Auto Literature Collectors and Libraries! I am finishing a booklet about a lady sitting in a Locomobile in front of a Syracuse, NY, fountain in 1900. See attached image. A very good friend and Locomobile expert sent me a photocopy of a 1900 Locomobile trade catalogue that was distributed by the Syracuse Automobile Company, which sold this locomobile. See attached images. Does anyone know where the original brochure is located? Is it in a library or private collection? I don't want to buy it, but just get high quality scans of the original brochure. Thanks very much! Best wishes! Don Hoke

  12. Thank you! I knew there were Cadillac Experts who would know. Best wishes! Don Hoke The Virtual Steam Car Museum, Inc.
  13. Thank you all so very much for your help. Wonderful information. Who knew about Canada shifting to right side driving in 1921! OK, now the tough question: What is the name of this horse? Just kidding! Very best wishes! Don Hoke The Virtual Steam Car Museum, Inc. horses_04_front_1909_08_august_24.tif
  14. Thank you very much! I knew there were Cadillac experts such as you out there who would know. I'll mention your help in a footnote when the book comes out in five years.
  15. Thank You! So Canadian license plates are searchable. Wonderful!
  16. Good Morning, Automobile Researchers! Can you help The Virtual Steam Car Museum identify these internal combustion cars illustrated on these postcards? They are all posed in the huge tree at Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC. Thank you very much!

  17. Good Morning, Cadillac Experts! Can anyone identify the year and model of the car in this postcard? These are four variations of the same card, including a reproduction card. The wording reads "CADILLAC EIGHT" and identifies the giant tree at Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC. Thanks very much! Best wishes!

  18. The biography of New Zealand steam car engineer, Hector Halhead "Steam" Stewart is now in print and availabe on the Vintage Steam Products web page. Stewart was born in the New Zealand bush, built his first steam car from a burned up Locomobile, and made a lot of money in Featherston during World War I. He traveled to America to secure the Stanley Steam Car distributorship for New Zealand, imported Stanleys, went back to America to help design the 1925 SV Stanley. Stewart returned to America in 1927 to work with Abner Doble in Detroit on steam buses and then brought Doble to New Zealand to build steam buses in Auckland. He made brass hand grenade parts during World War II. The book is published by the Virtual Steam Car Museum, a non-profit virtual museum. It is 638 pages long, includes 500+ illustrations, and weighs 8 pounds. Retail price is $80.00 USD plus postage. Order today!
  19. Good Evening Steam Enthusiasts! The fuel pressure tank on The BettyAnne, our 1925 Stanley SV252G, is showing its age. It held pressure for a while, but has sprung a leak. The leak is now repaired with silver solder and a drain plug, but I suspect this is not a permanent repair. 1. Who has a Stanley Model 740 or 750 fuel pressure tank for sale? 2. Vintage Steam Products would consider making these tanks if we had enough orders to cover the set up cost. How many folks would be interested in one of these tanks. They are about 14" long and 6" in diameter. Each would have a drain plug, a fuel inlet/outlet fitting, and an air inlet fitting. I suspect we would make them from copper just as we do the existing pressure tanks for non-condensing Stanleys. They would be pressure tested to about 350 psi. 3. The Stewart Biography is at the printer. I will have a proof copy at the Stanley Museum Seminar in a few weeks. Thanks very much to the folks who helped sponsor it! $80.00 plus postage and handling. 125 copies in the initial press run. Thank heaven for Print On Demand! 4. If you need something from Vintage Steam Products, I can deliver to Vermont, but Carolyn must know by July 27th at the very latest. Very best wishes! Don Hoke The Virtual Steam Car Museum and Vintage Steam Products.
  20. Good Morning! Would you like to create a page on the Virtual Steam Car Museum for Stanley Allred? Best wishes! Don Hoke

  24. Good Morning, Chrysler Brake Experts! My 1925 Stanley has early Lockheed Hydraulic Brakes and I desperately need three wheel cylinder pistons as shown on the right of the attached photos. The diameter is 1.500" and it is 1" tall/high. Call me at (972) 661-9672 if you can help. Thank you very much. Don Hoke
