  1. Dave, Thanks for the info........since, I made the original post in '08 ,I've done extensive research on the Piedmont Motor Car Co. located here in Lynchburg. They were like so many car manufacturers at the turn of the century. They were enthusiastic, energetic and most of all............underfunded. The company was chartered in March 1916 by the Va SCC and amazingly, the first car was rolled off in March a year later. I'll be glad to send a copy of a presentation that gave to the historical society a while back. As far as remaining cars, I know of three. One in Lynchburg, the s

  5. Sorry guys, This is the car that has been sitting since 1954. It runs great, so I'm in the process of re-wiring the car. Unfortunately, the previous owner removed all of the wiring including the relay. I'm n ot sure what happened to it so, I'm looking for one I can use or maybe mount a fuse under the dash. As always , Thanks
  6. I'm looking for a replacement source for the current limiter relay for our 29 Buick. I'm also interested to hear if anyone has rewired a car and replaced the relay with a conventional fuse block. Thanks,
  7. Ryan, You've gotten a lot of input on this subject, so I'll throw in my two cents............Mine was pretty simple ....mounted the frame on two engine stands (with a few modifications) . Rolled into the blast area, then sprayed with a two part epoxy. Results were great..........

  14. It's with mixed emotions that I've decided to sell my Packard. I'm the fourth owner of a beautiful '37' 120C. The car was delivered to Wash DC purportedly purchased by a gentleman who was chauffeur to William Bankhead. Speaker of the House. Most of our generation will recognize his daughter, the actress Tulula Bankhead. The restoration was completed about five years ago with a"body off" restoration. A copy of the photos during the restoration will be provided. For additional photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/RyHD3AL4PC9qrreT6 Asking $78,500 . For additional in

  17. Gents, Thank you so much for the info.............You have confirmed my thoughts that they are indeed measuring 20". I had some previous misinformation that was creating doubt . As an FYI, this is an original car , last driven on the highway in 1954
  18. Gentlemen, Thanks for all the comments..............Al is my Dad and the car is in my garage. We are still looking for a set of rollers. A gentlemen reached out with a set of 19" tires, but I've struggled with trying to determine the size of the tire. If I measured the rim correctly, they are indeed a 20" tire. My concern was I couldn't find any specs that called for a 20" tire in 1929. Any help would be greatly appreciated.......
  19. Still Looking .............................Thanks,
  20. Good Morning Dale, Thank you for looking! Happy Thanksgiving............
