  1. I have bought from brokers, including at least one that often list cars on this website. I have always had good luck and have been pleased with my purchases. Real estate is typically sold by brokers and no one complains. Just because one is a licensed car dealer doesn't make them necessarily credible or legitimate. There are plenty of licensed and crooked car dealers out there. Remember, just because a "licensed dealer" has a fancy building and a stacked inventory of expensive cars, doesn't mean he actually owns the building or his inventory. Owning a car doesn't always mean owning a car. He could be completely upside down in credit lines, loan sharks and/or private, business and personal loans because he needs to keep his doors open and his inventory stocked. These situations never work out well. We have certainly seen the results of these situations in the antique car world over the years. Any of us who have been in the hobby for years can certainly name a few dealers who had bitter endings. Anyone can be a crook-a local car club member, a licensed dealer, even a family member. Know what you are buying and who you are buying it from and you don't need to worry. Be aware and be intelligent. Smart shoppers make smart buyers and typically own great cars.
  2. Although there are a lot of "1915" Model Ts out there, very few of them are real. This roadster/runabout looks like great original car. The price is extremely reasonable considering it is a legitimate HCCA eligible tour car. Great presentation showing all of the proper numbers, etc.
  3. So, how much is the car? It has been for sale at least once, so the price should not be a mystery.
  4. For this application, there are some sealed, gel cell batteries that will last forever. Go to a place like Batteries Plus and they have several options.
  5. What a great car. I love the sporty lines of this body design. It really screams "hot rod". In my opinion, the curved lower body or coach sill makes it look much sportier than the roadster. And its also a lot rarer. It seems that people are finally starting to realize that some of the best looking Full Classics are not necessarily the convertibles.
  6. While we are making comments…. Something I don't understand: People wait all year for Hershey. They anticipate it all year, they talk about it all year, look forward to it all year, make their travel plans a year in advance, they pay for their swap spaces, pay for gas, pay for lodging, they travel great distances with a big load of stuff to sell, and they take the time to unpack and display all the stuff that they hauled hundreds or thousands of miles. And then they set up for a few hours on one or two days, hurry up and pack and can't leave Hershey fast enough. I don't get it. After a year of anticipation, don't you want to enjoy the event to its fullest???? I understand this is not unique to Hershey. It happens at Prewar Chickasha and Bakersfield as well. Probably most other events too. Yes, it rained on Thursday. No where near the rains we have experienced in the past. Actually, it wasn't even a steady rain. In the old days, we would have thought this was one of the "better" Hersheys weather wise. Instead, people packed up at the first hint of rain and headed home. The amount of empty spaces today was astounding. Tuesday, Wednesday, THURSDAY and today were great days at Hershey. Had a great time walking around, bought some neat stuff and saw some great cars. The time spent in my booth, however, is the best part. Watching the entire antique automotive world walk by is priceless. It never gets boring. Just when you think you have seen it all……. Looking forward to the show tomorrow. Sometimes after the show, we just sit in our swap space in the middle of a near empty large parking lot and wish we could do this for just one more day. Thanks to the National AACA and the Hershey Region for making this happen again and again. See you next year.
  7. I looked at this auction car last year. This car had the wrong engine and a tired restoration that was in need of a redo. A significantly different type of car than the roadster being offered here. History is everything on a car like this. Authentic V-16 roadsters with bonafide histories are benchmark automobiles and are rarely offered for sale.
  8. I keep looking at this 1927 Peerless V-8 boat tail that is being offered at the RM/Auctions America Auction (they keep changing their names, not sure who they are now). https://www.rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/AS18/Auburn-Spring/lots/r0113-1927-peerless-boattail-speedster/660860 The car looks like it might be a coupe that has had the top cut off. The area where the door meets the rear quarter panel just looks strange, as does the top. It just doesn't look right I have always wanted a Peerless to add to the collection. Does anyone have any insight on this car? Any photos of another example to compare? Factory photos and/or ads? Just trying to determine what this is or isn't. Any history on this particular car? The estimated price seems very fair if it is a real car. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Wow, that is a super beautiful car. With the later and more common 1938-1940 LZ coupes selling at auction recently for nearly 200,000.00 recently, this rarer and more desirable 1937 seems to be priced very fair. These are great cars. Not only do they look good, but the have "sensible" Ford mechanical components which means they are reliable, easy to work on and mechanical parts are available-and affordable. The Columbia is an important bonus too. Good luck in the sale.
  10. If I was going to own a postwar car, this would certainly be one for consideration. It looks like a great car and is priced about the same as a 1955-57 Chevrolet convertible-maybe even a bit less. Lots of metal for the money and a prestigious marque as well.
  11. Great looking Packard at a reasonable price. It would be hard to find a comparable 1937 Ford or Chevy sedan for the same price!!!
  12. Wow, this is an amazing car. Truly a gentleman's sports car.
  13. What a fabulous car....and a lucky new owner!
