  1. Olds headlights were mounted on a heavier stalk and were forward. Reos and Olds were completely different. I agree with it being a REO. 1915 Olds They also had aluminum running boards.
  2. Wasn't the Ford engine that was late a large overhead cam v-8? I think it was a real impressive looking engine that never panned ou.
  3. I have some tires for this fellow. He is in Quebec and I don't take paypal anymore. What is a good way to ship tires to him and what is a good way for me to get paid. David
  4. People are right that you are a little out of place here but I have enjoyed your posts. Keep them coming!
  5. That is a nice looking gauge. Don't let it rust away.
  6. headlights are mounted wrong for an Olds.
  7. It would probably be mid 60s Ford. Depending on size it could even be mustang.
  8. Post the size, what it is made of and some one may be able to help. I made some from leather and steel belt lacing.
  9. You might also think about adding a flex agent like they use when repainting bumper covers. Any auto body supply would have it.
  10. I am with Mercer 09. I guess we will have to fight for it unless there are two available.
  11. It looks like a combination hubcap wrench that can also be used to loosen or tighten lug nuts.
  12. Most likely model 46, has the correct hubcap on the front, seems to be missing on the rear. It has the right toolbox storage on the side above the running board.
  13. I have to agree with Tinindian on not badmouthing the competition. A very poor sales habit.
  14. Well this will be scam number 2 on selling a demountable rim. The first I posted about three weeks ago. This one looks to probably be Russian in origin. Bad grammar, strange words and asking to buy my merchandise with no questions or info about the kind of car they have. They want me to package it up and give it to "their shipper". They will send me a check and I am supposed to pay the shipper the excess that they will send me. No mention where it is going. They have no idea of how big or what the package weighs but they want all my information. Are thing s getting so desperate that these people have to do $100 scams. If I was doing a scam I think that I would have a minimum scam of at least $500. What would these people do if a person just repeatedly said they "haven't got their check ? I can't help it but I try to think of ways to screw with the scammers. Anybody got any good ideas? Nickelroadster
  15. Rumble seats don't seem too bad to me. The ones that I can't understand are the little slide out seats that will barely hold an average size person.
  16. It is worth whatever anyone will pay for it. Victor Page wrote many books on repairing automobiles. I would be a buyer at $100.
  17. I understand that your jug is cracked. Are you surer that the jug cannot be repaired? There are specialty welders that can weld and braze cast iron.
  18. It helps if you can enjoy the "hunt". The harder parts are to find, the more of a feeling of accomplishment when you find them. In the case of something like a Maxwell I would try to chase down and get to know as many early Maxwell owners as you can.
  19. I was actually selling two rims, one of which I am going to ship to the Czech Republic. I met a friend of the buyer at Hershey and he paid me with a North Carolina check which I am waiting to clear the bank before I ship to the buyer. He spoke very good English and talked about his car (old Buick). The "Nigerian" said he had a large collection of cars but couldn't tell me what kind of car he had. I still think that the scammer had limited scam skills. Nickelroadster
  20. He is claiming that I don't have to allow pickup until his check clears the bank. Maybe he hasn't graduated from scam school yet.
  21. I didn't have any doubt that this was a scam. I am just curious as to how it was supposed to work. Nickelroadster
  22. I am selling a rim online and have gotten a wild answer and have pretty well decided it is a scam but am not sure how it works. I wonder if the person doesn't fiddle around and send different instructions about the way to do things and then decide that he or she has sent too much money and then ask for a refund. I don't se a Nigerian prince involved. If anyone could explain how this might work I would like to know as I am not going to follow through to see how it works Hello David .. Hope in good condition .. How much will you let it go for ? $100 sounds good for it .. It looks clean and worth the offer .. I am willing to pay for it Ok .. I will be sending a carrier to come for the pick up at your location .. All expense paid by me .. i wont be able to pay cash for this sale but i can only issue a cashier's check and i can wait till the check is being cashed and clears before the carrier would come pick it up at your location ..I hope we can proceed with the payment ?Ok then text me the full name that will be written on the check and the full mailing address where it will be sent to ? i must be sincere with you that the only mode of payment which i can afford at the moment is a cashiers check .. I will wait for the funds to clear in your account before the carrier comes for the pick up ..Let me know if you will be willing to accept the check ? I need to inform you of other household items which is due to be picked up within the states plus the () which i am buying from you .... the shipping funds will be included on the payment sent ... So i will be adding a extra fifty for you to have it done in my favor and for your trust and reserving it for me I will give you further directives on how to communicate with carrier as regards the best time for pick up and remainder funds .... I hope i can trust and confident in you .. Nickelroadster
  23. I would suspect that there is more than one size hub used from 24 to 32.
