  1. Not the greatest quality, but this was taken during the 2009 Pierce Arrow Society Annual Meet held in Temecula, Calif.
  2. Cost of living varies greatly from state to state, city to city. If you make in the low 6 figures in So Cal you can barely afford a decent neighborhood and one collector car. But move that income to somewhere like Kentucky and you're rolling in the dough.
  3. That must have been heartbreaking to witness.
  4. Those are some fine looking cars. And his new Studie even has the correct YOM plates.
  5. Pic of concrete building decoration. Definitely a cool piece of history.
  6. I'm not sure about overall numbers for the PAS, but I was not a member 20 years ago even though my Pierce has been in the family for over 50 years. The Rickenbacker Car Club was very active back before the internet, then it waned quite a bit but has picked up membership in the last few years.
  7. I don't claim to be a TR6 expert, but that looks more like a Spitfire than a TR6. And the car is loaded too far forward, too much tongue weight and not enough weight over the axles. Turn the car around with the engine more over the axles and it would be better.
  8. Thanks for the glorious pic, Ed. I just wish I could be out there with my PAS family enjoying the friendship, the cars, the tours and food.
  9. It really depends on the car. I do drive the Rickenbacker to run errands but I don't go in anywhere for any length of time. Too many things made of unobtanium for me to let either the Pierce or the Rick sit anywhere unattended. And that is why I have been leaning towards picking up a driver Ford Model A. You can build one out of a catalog so I wouldn't have to worry so much about someone swiping a radiator cap or gas cap.
  10. What about running Evaporust through the system as others have recommended and then just use a good anti-corrosion additive?
  11. For material I would talk to Hartz. They are experts in the field of top materials. I would also wait to hear what Trimacar has to say, he has forgotten more about pre-war top and upholstery materials than most of us will every know.
  12. L & L does not seem to have a website but they do have a Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/LL-Antique-and-Custom-Auto-Trim-1507174832693144/
  13. I think the worst trend with wraps is when they take something like a Lamborghini and wrap it in flat black. Zero shine, just flat black.
  14. At first glance I thought it was a manufacturer road testing a soon to be released model. They camouflage cars that have not been released so no one can grab pics and plaster them all over the internet. But that one has custom wheels and other mods. Makes zero sense to wrap your car like that.
  15. Band of Brothers is a great series. We can never truly repay these brave men for what they did for this country.
