  1. This car is still for sale, price reduced to $10,900/negotiable.
  2. It was great to see the library staff at The Elegance last month, and thanks for bringing along some Browniekar literature for the spectators to peruse.
  3. Excellent running and driving touring car with very good cosmetics and interior. $13k/negotiable. Located in Sodus, New York. Contact Paul at 315-576-4609.
  4. Drove the 1905 Model C only about 6 miles last weekend to a local show and then ice cream (of course). Week before last we clocked 70 miles on a great one-day local tour with other brass-era friends.
  5. Thanks David. That Long-Turney radiator peaked my interest. And thank you Chris for attempting to zoom in on the picture.
  6. Chris- I think this is a newsprint piece and is hard to see deatils, but can you tell what kind of car this is from the embossing on the radiator? On another note, here's a picture of my '25 Ford/Tracford conversion: It's a project-in-waiting.
  7. Hi Mark- Thanks for the reply to my post. I was able to get a good pencil rubbing of the brass tag, photographs, and measurements of someone's Cartridge Coil and was able to make the box and switch, and have a tag made. That brand is pretty obscure and I wasn't able to see another "in the flesh" prior to having one made. I'd be interested in seeing photographs of yours to add to my files for possible future reference. Thanks again for posting. -Steve.
  8. Glad to see that marriage hasn't affected your sense of humor. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Novaman!
  9. Also, these covers were used with early single-tube tires (where the casing and the tube were one, in concept not unlike today's tube-less tires, but rather like a "tire-less tube"). They threaded over a concave-headed retaining bolt (which I've heard referred to as a "lug") that was vulcanized into the tube and protruded through holes drilled in the rim and felloe. Without a clincher formed in the rim, air pressure alone could not hold the tire on. Over-tightening of these covers would tend to pull the lug through the tube and cause it to go flat. This inherent problem caused the development and popularitiy of clincher rims. My Browniekar had two original tires on it when I acquired it that used this method of tire mounting. -Steve.
  10. Here's another for the list: "Racytype" this model designation was used by Mora, Velie, and perhaps others.
  11. Great exposure for AACA, the Fall Meet, our own Mr. Moskowitz, and the hobby! We need all of this kind of press we can get. Television worth watching.
  12. Greetings all- I can't resist jumping in here. My wife and I own the Browniekar and six-cylinder Mora Tourer discussed in this thread. The photo posted by Mr. Mellor is of a Light Four Mora of 1907 vintage. It is very similiar to the "World's Record Sealed Bonnet Hero" car that travelled well over 8,000 miles with the hood (bonnet) sealed. It won several contests and put Mora on the map briefly. I've provided a photo of that car below. West is correct, there are two known Mora cars, ours and the car on display at the Swigart Museum in Huntingdon, PA. Their car looks considerably different than the car in the original post and our car. It's a model 20, a 20 horsepower runabout with a Renault-style hood (bonnet). A photo of that car is included below. Also posted are photos of our Mora as it appeared in the Bridgewater Museum for about 40 years, and as it appeared at the 2010 AACA Eastern Division Spring Meet in Canandaigua. And finally, also a photo of our Browniekar.
