  1. The trailer was special ordered. The door is 80" tall. Everything I own will fit inside.
  2. 2017 Nissan Titan XD with a 5.0L Cummins Turbo Diesel pulling a 2017 Diamond Cargo 24' enclosed trailer. This truck tows effortlessly.
  3. The name Airman was first used in 1928, and was then used until the end of production in 1934. After 1932, it differentiated the full-size six-cylinder cars from the Olympic and V12.
  4. The registry shows only 16 1933 Airmans surviving, and 26 from 1934. Since there are only 42 cars to choose from, you might want to just start contacting owners through the roster and see what you can come up with.
  5. My dad once drove his 1910 Sears into a Sears auto center, and said, "I assume you have parts for this."
  6. I'm still in love with my 1932 Franklin.
  7. I have never seen a period photo of an Olympic convertible.
  8. I have heard of a heat riser failing on another Olympic. A very competent Franklin mechanic had his Olympic backfire, then not run at all. After pulling his hair out, he realized that the backfire had blown out the heat riser tube. Franklin may have changed this design in 1933, because I haven't heard of it happening on earlier cars.
  9. Judging by the wear on the brake pedal, this car probably has a few hundred thousand miles on it.
  10. I've been a life member for 40 years, and hope to get at least another 40 years. My uncle bought me the life membership when I was six years old.
  11. Usually they come apart from the base of the column, down by the steering box. The tube that runs down the column with the control rod (I think it's only throttle on a 130) will slide out, but it may hit the headliner, unless you have an open car. DO NOT BEND IT. NOT EVEN A LITTLE. If you bend the tube, every time you turn the wheel, the throttle will open. If the throttle control tube can not come out, you will have to lower the column to make room.
  12. As ACN Editor, you should glance through all the past issues. It will give you a great education on the cars and the club.
  13. I have one on Dad's Sears. It was very hard to find, and expensive. Pairs are almost impossible to find.
