  1. From my resources it appears as thought serial number 99T-604417 is a true 1944. The 1944 production started at 99T-583001 and went up. The 1945 production started at either 99C-623330 or 99T-623330 so based upon that it would appear that you have a true 1944. Also in these years the Fords motor/engine number matched the frame number originally. If your truck has an engine the number will be located back on the top of the bellhousing ... if it matches then you have the original engine!
  2. Not sure how you can get much larger that that log truck. Maybe a Challenger but since most of those are in BC and Australia I don't think we will see one of those at Hershey!
  3. What a great show. The folks couldn't have been nicer. It was awesome to have had the opportunity to enjoy this show. Hats off to the organizers!! Well done!
  4. On the way from Penna! Bringing a '56 190SL, class 25A. I'll be in Hershey in 36b with my '67 Camaro (yellow on yellow) that I just finished.
  5. This is a scam. I had the same message sent to me earlier this year when I was selling a race car. They wanted a vehicle history report. I responded that the car was a race car and the vehicle history report would be useless ... they continued to insist. Then I looked it up and noticed it was a scam.
  6. To the best of my knowledge turn signals were not federally mandated until January 1, 1968 with the passage of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. They were however, as many of us know standard equipment long before that. With respect to Pennsylvania. 67 Pa. Code § 175.66(m) (as authorized by 75 Pa. C.S.A. §4303) specifically states that "Antique vehicle lighting exemption. An antique vehicle, if operated exclusively between the hours of sunrise to sunset and not during periods of reduced visibility or insufficient illumination, is exempt from requirements of this section (relating to lighting and electrical systems) except requirements pertaining to stop lamps." So in Pennsylvania if you have a vehicle registered as an antique and you do not drive it at night, you do not have to comply with any lighting requirements (including headlights and turn signals).
  7. It looks somewhat like a Thomas 60hp, however the body isn't quite the same although the chassis design seems similiar. The hoodsides on a 60hp Thomas were louvered where these are flat. The front coil springs seem to be an afterthought and probably aren't factory original. The steering column seems to be at too much of an angle for a Thomas, but nonetheless what an interesting photo!
  8. I would highly recommend not going with a "title company" to assist you with this problem. Colorado is one of the few states that require that a Certificate of Title exchange hands when a car is purchased. See 42-6-109. If no title goes with the car, then the purchaser has very reduced legal rights in the car and it could be a misdemeanor. See 42-6-110. I know this may be contrary to custom and practice, but it is the law in some states. Title situations are not to be taken lightly. With this said, your best bet may be to apply for a bonded title under the following section. 42-6-115. Furnishing bond for certificates (1) (a) If the applicant for a certificate of title to a motor vehicle is unable to provide the director or the authorized agent with a certificate of title duly transferred to the applicant or other evidence of ownership satisfactory to the director as specified in rules established pursuant to section 42-6-104, the director or the authorized agent may file a certificate of title for the vehicle if the applicant furnishes the director or the authorized agent with a statement, in a form specified by the director, that contains: (I) A recital of the facts and circumstances by which the applicant acquired the ownership and possession of the vehicle; (II) The source of the title to the vehicle; and (III) Other information as the director may require to determine: (A) Whether any liens are attached to the motor vehicle; ( The date of the liens; © The amount secured by the vehicle; (D) Where the liens are of public record; and (E) The right of the applicant to have a certificate of title filed on behalf of the applicant. ( The statement specified in paragraph (a) of this subsection (1) must contain or be accompanied by a written declaration that it is made under penalty of perjury in the second degree, as defined in section 18-8-503, C.R.S., and must accompany the application for the certificate as required in section 42-6-116. © The director or the authorized agent may maintain any evidence submitted to the director or the authorized agent in a paper or electronic version. (2) If the director or the authorized agent finds that the applicant is the same person to whom a certificate of title for the vehicle has previously been issued or filed and to whom a license was issued for the year during which the application for the certificate of title is made and that a certificate of title should be filed on behalf of the applicant, the director or authorized agent may file the certificate. (3) (a) Except as provided by paragraph ( of this subsection (3) or section 42-12-402, the department or an authorized agent shall not file a certificate of title under this section until the applicant furnishes evidence of a savings account, deposit, or certificate of deposit meeting the requirements of section 11-35-101, C.R.S., or a good and sufficient bond with a corporate surety, to the state, in an amount fixed by the director, not less than twice the reasonable value of the vehicle determined as of the time of application. The applicant and the applicant's surety shall hold harmless any person who suffers loss or damage by reason of the filing of a certificate under this section. ( If the vehicle for which the certificate is filed is twenty-five years old or older, the applicant has had a certified vehicle identification number inspection performed on the vehicle, and the applicant presents a notarized bill of sale within twenty-four months after the sale with the title application, the applicant need not furnish surety under this subsection (3). To be excepted from the surety requirement, an applicant shall submit an affidavit to the department that is sworn to under penalty of perjury that states that the required documents submitted are true and correct. (4) If any person suffers loss or damage by reason of the filing of the certificate of title as provided in this section, the person has a right of action against the applicant and the surety on the applicant's bond against either of whom the person damaged may proceed independently of the other. C.R.S. 42-6-115 In closing, I would hightly recommend you contact an attorney, in Colorado, who is familiar with Colorado motor vehicle law to assist you with this issue, anything less may result in a messing legal situation.
  9. Good morning! I’m working on a research project concerning Pennsylvania title numbers. I’m trying to assemble a spreadsheet containing the Pennsylvania title number and the date it was issued so that we can better understand how and when Pennsylvania issued certain title numbers and in what format they were issued. I have a pretty good list so far and am beginning to see some patterns but need assistance with the older cars the most. If you have an old car titled in Pennsylvania or an old Pennsylvania Certificate of Title you can help. I am in need of: The "Title Number" date the title shows that the vehicle was originally PA Titled (if shown), the year and make of the vehicle; and VIN if you feel comfortable. Please email this information to bshook@dplglaw.com if you do not feel comfortable posting it. I’m hoping that this information, once assembled, will assist us in determining how Penndot keeps its records on our old cars and how long cars have been in Pennsylvania. The more data I can assemble the more reliable of a research tool it will be. The older the better! Your assitance is greatly appreciated!
  10. My first guesses where an '04 Thomas or Packard, but the hoods are different. The radiators all have that basic bell out at the frame, but that is where the similarities stop.
  11. What exactly are you looking to learn about the car? They didn't make many and are desirable as this was the first year Camaro convertibles were factory produced by Chevrolet since the 1969 model year.
  12. The use of the legal system naturally requires some legal skill, knowledge and ability, not unlike the restoration of an automobile. It is possible that lay person could get through the legal system, but someone trained in the law will make that trip much easier (albeit at an expense that person). I don't believe that the question of whether or not the declaration of ownership of an automobile is within the jurisdiction of a district justice has been settled yet. This is a question which seems unsettled by my reading of the law. Accordingly, anyone who takes this route should take it with caution until such time as this jurisdictional question has been resolved. Another reason to stay away from the district justice route is that, in Pennsylvania, the district justices are not "Courts of Record" meaning that there is no transcript of the proceedings of the cases heard before the district justice. If the petition is brought in the Court of Common Pleas, there will forever be a record of the proceeding and a transcript can be made of any proceeding or hearing held before the Court which will forever preserve the moment. There is no automatic "mechanic's lien". Even insofar as mechanic's liens are applicable to improvements to real estate, there still must be a judicial determination prior to any action being commenced for the sale of the property liened. Common law repairman's liens in Pennsylvania are rare and unfortunately somewhat archaic. Finally, contracts are only as good as (1) the intentions of the parties and (2) the actions of the parties. Even with a written contract, if the intention of one party is the cheat another it can and unfortunately does happen. But in any event having a CLEAR and SIGNED (by both parties) written contract, which is amended from time to time as the scope of the project grows or shrinks is still your best bet.
