  2. Disregard the distance estimate above ---had wrong state- was looking at Mo.. Still may be worth a call and the trip.
  3. Tom, I don't know where you are located in Kansas, but the Renu website shows a location in Knoxville, Iowa, about 50 miles north of the Kansas border. I would start over, and give that location a call and investigate the warranty, as it implies to me that it is a lifetime warranty on the tank. The situation may be like state license plate bureaus- it depends upon your luck of the draw as to the cooperation of the person waiting on you. Be nice and don't relate the previous conversations
  4. John, I have two British cars which use the metal straps. The capillary, or brake line or whatever, actually goes inside the 'butterfly" part of the strap. It is placed on top of the strap, then the strap makes a wrap around the pipe and places the butterfly on top, then another warp, and then through the slots in the ears and under the butterfly, and then folds back onto itself. Harder to explain than do. Looks neat when done. I assume they would be similar on your Buick. Attached are a couple of photos- disregard the color change of the strap due to the flash.
  5. John, good story !, but you left us hanging-what happened to "Rover" ? :confused:
  6. August, there is a restored 1918 Rauch and Lang Brougham BX-7 in the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Salisbury, NC, USA. John, I do not see your photos, and do not know how much difference there is in the 1918 and your 1912, or if this would be of help to you.

  9. If you have a driver and are like Bamford's Garage and don't mind people touching your car, put a Wet Paint sign on it and have a little fun watching people.
  10. You may be correct about the grill being a lamp. This car appears to be a special display for Cibie ( painted on the rear fender) which is a French lighting company.

  12. Even a color blind electrician can work on this Model T as the wires are all the same color :^)
  13. It seems that you have made a hybrid as "you would want it"- now you can have the pleasure of figuring out your creation. Coming to a site of "purists" for answers to a standard setup will not help, especially if you don't want to change anything. ;^)

  15. Ask at the board meeting if the moderators are supposed to be Nannies ;^)
  16. "I cringed when I read Scotch pad and paint in the same paragraph." heh heh How about Amphicar Buyer's sharp putty knife ?
  17. Regular Windex with "Ammonia D " works, but may still need a little help after soaking if the bugs have really dried and baked on. The bounce sheets have enough texture to help with the Windex without really scratching the paint. I have an old worn out piece of scotch pad that I use.
  18. I entered a AACA local show in a neighboring town recently and observed a good idea practised by many of the members. They, like many of us, have a shelf full of plastic trophies and a wall full of mounted wood plaques so they have developed a "Patron" class. These members do not get judged, and do not take trophies, instead they donate what the trophies would have cost to the Community college automobile program. They do have trophies for members that still want them, and for visitors. This program helps in the number of cars to be judged; helps in the club member internal competition department; and helps the college program. I plan to ask to be entered as a "Patron" next year. Our local club has had it's trials and tribulations with judging, especially "Best of Show", which normally is expected to be the last club member which had a paint job. I think they have adopted the best practice- just buy 95% first class trophies, and only give a 2nd to a real dog of a car :^)

  22. I do not have any plans but here are two views of a nice one that someone posted in the past.

  24. This may just be the depth of field of the lens in the camera giving a distorted depth perception. The rear of the utility truck parked in front of the Woody and the overhang of the building both show this rapidly tapering effect. Also note the parking space lines directly behind the Woody, as to how short they appear.
