  1. They may be a 1929 Buick with the optional wooden artillery wheels ?? What do you think ?? They seem to be very similar in proportion ?
  2. I didn't realize that there were Tent Trailers this early ... I had always thought they were a post war invention ... late 40's - early 50's ... :eek: From a current Ebay listing ... Might be just the thing for someone touring with a Model T or A ... or something similar small car or those times ... Not necessarily this particular 'camper' ... but looks like it would be a fairly easy to create a similar camper using a spare axel and styling to match your antique car ... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_rdc=1&item=300397688617&ru=http%3A%2F%2Fshop.ebay.com%3A80%2F%3F_from%3DR40%26_trksid%3Dp3907.m38.l1313%26_nkw%3D300397688617%26_sacat%3DSee-All-Categories%26_fvi%3D1&viewitem=
  3. I've been looking at an ad for " 1925 Buick Wood Spoke Wheels " in my area, and wonder if anyone has seen any 'Buick' wheels that look like these ??? First Pic - claims to be two 1925 Buick Wood Spoke Wheels ?? Second Pic - is a download online of the correct 1925 Buick Wood Spoke Wheels ... They must have a Buick Logo on the cap ... but they're 15" balloon style tires ... so they would have to be 1925 or later ... if they are even from a Buick :confused: Much too heavy for a car, but did Buick have a comercial chassis that would of used these heavy wooden wheels ? I was wondering what they are, or if they were worth anything, as they would probably look good as wall art if I can pick them up cheap enough ...
  4. I can't understand why it wouldn't ... I've tried it several times ... before / during and after posting ... and now ... ?? Works just fine for me ... It may work easier for you opening up on the homepage first ... This url I've checked several times before posting as well ... http://www.lbvcr.com/
  5. 1000's of pictures of the 2004 - 2005 - 2006 - 2007 - 2008 - 2009 Car entries for the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run Even some of the most knowledgeable here will probably see a few of the entries that they are not familiar with ... I was amazed at some of the variety that are driven on this run ... gas / steam / electric http://www.lbvcr.com/cars.cfm
  6. WoW again ... Actually ... not all that far ... I'm just north of Toronto ... I'll have to update my profile ... That would be a great opportunity for anyone interested in antique electric cars! Since these are so rare ... hopefully you'll be able to post a few pictures for everyone to admire your car ... I've always wanted to find an electric vehicle to restore ... but the few that do come up are always so far away from what I could consider financially & geographically ... :mad: Hope you'll share your good fortune with a few pics for everybody to see ...
  7. I have updated the origional Krieger Electric picture by providing the url for looking at this directly now ... click picture on url once to see full size ... Beautiful photography ... obviously professionally done ... well worth viewing in its origional format ... This is actually a FWD car ... with large motors mounted behind the wheels / axels ... Some of the Krieger Electrics, mainly the commercial trucks, had an additional electric motor to assist with steering ... PS ?? http://www.theblogofrecord.com/wp-co...-landaulet.jpg<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
  8. This is a picture of a Krieger Electric Car taken in 1906 with then Senator George P Wetmore from Rhode Island ... One of the most impressive electrics I've seen so far !!! Unbelievable ... I want one ... but impossible ... if any actually remain ... but certainly not in this condition ... Origional Victorian Elegance ... Running a close 2nd ... would be the origional 1900 Porsche Electric ... How times have changed ... :mad: Please check the origional location for a very high quality picture !!! (click for for full page / full screen picture) http://www.theblogofrecord.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/senator-george-p-wetmore-rhode-island-in-a-krieger-electric-landaulet.jpg
  9. If only this was true ... Some of us may even be willing to pay DOUBLE that amount for a NEW original Model T from the factory ...
  10. Love It or Hate It ... there doesn't seem to be any neutral opinions ... I put one in my 1954 Cadillac a couple of years ago, and haven't had to think of it again ... Some of the negative comments in other threads state that at some time in the future it may fail suddenly, and that you should keep your origional points & condensor ... just in case ... I LOVE IT ... and haven't had a problem myself ...
  11. I agree with the above poster, it is BIG! You can spend all day walking around trying to see everything ... so wear something comfortable and see how far your legs can carry you ... A lot of vendors, but very mixed ... Can be difficult to find what your looking for if its not the mainstream 50's - 60's - 70's Chev/Ford or muscle cars ... Too much sneaks in as far as the T-shirts, antiques, jewellery, unrelated items ... IMHO I'm only 30 minutes away, but have only bothered to go twice in the last 10 years (including last year) ... as I'm mainly looking for 50's Cadillac parts and usually do better on Ebay ... http://www.burlscreek.com/
  12. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Roger Walling</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> (Todays laugh, the e-bay ad said "engin turns over, may start") </div></div> I think I saw that car on ebay ... "running when parked" 40 years ago ...
  13. What an opportunity for a car guy!! A chance to pick up a new home at a distress sale price ... afterall, who else would want it? Increase the foundation under the garage for a level driveway and use the extra height for a custom garage, with plenty of height for multi level car storage or car lift to service your cars
  14. Until last year ... if I was in a similar situation ... I would of bought the car of my dreams and want to buried in it ... Then we saw the results of the 1957 Belvedere buried in Tulsa ... NO WAY
  15. Barry ... if your still considering doing an electric conversion on your boat ... you may want to check out an EV site dealing with electric conversions ... most are ones that the owners have done themselves ... for cars, trucks, boats ect ... Many do it yourself conversions at a fraction of the price ... http://www.evalbum.com/type/BOAT Theres about a dozen different conversions ... with varying sizes and components ... but especially a large wooden boat that was converted here ... "1928 Blanchard 36 Cruiser" http://www.evalbum.com/820
