  1. Wall base mount with cover, $55, chrome trim, used except for the new small upper part, $35, or all for $80. {Lease pm me, thanks, Dave
  2. I worked for a sign company in the late '50's, the construction is not typical of how we custom made neons in the day. It almost looks to me to have been made using the bottom portion of a 5 gallon can. I'm not troubled by the cord, round black rubber cords existed then, but pop rivets weren't around then, we used regular flat head brass rivets, set by hand using a riveting hammer and a dolly. Regarding its cleanliness, it may have been intended to be an inside sign as evidenced by the single hanging hole in the back, perhaps for mounting up high on a wall, in which case it would not becom
  3. Aw c'mon guys, you know we love to be bs'd.
  4. I recall seeing this picture in a '30's Life magazine. The purpose was to create a draft in order for the rider to set a bicycle sped record. I think that about 107 mph was attained if memory serves. The car is a sc '37 Cord 812, capable of doing that speed.
  5. Regarding 30 Dodge Panel's question above asking if the picture was of Arlington, Va., I grew up in Arlington, presently own property there, and have Arlington recollections dating back to the mid 30's when presumably some or possibly all of these buildings would have still existed. I don't recognize any of them. "Childs" (If I am interpreting it right) was a restaurant or cafeteria in Baltimore I believe. West End Laundry doesn't ring a bell, nor was any Arlington area that I know of referred to as "West End". It is divided into north and south. I'm not able to make out the far right b
  6. Thank you. Amazing, although I recently received my 50 year ACD Club pin I have no recollection of ever having seen the car in person or even in the newsletter!
  7. I came across a 1935 movie titled After Office Hours, featuring Clark Gable and Constance Bennet. In it there is a chase scene with C. B. driving a somewhat Alfa Romeo-ish looking sporty roadster with Woodlite headlights. What is the car?
  8. Last known to be in the Netherlands (Nederlands), some may not realize the significance of this rare but dilapidated car, built by Stabilimenti Farina, Turin. I recall that when purchased years ago by my late friend at a junkyard he paid $35 for it! To follow its progression, google Joop Stolze Classic Cars/Siata Daina Coupe.
  9. This aluminum bodied Siata Berlinetta was entombed in my late friend's garage for 35+ years. It was known to his family and me but likely no one else.
  10. How about pictures from the first sighting of your barn find?
  11. A thick accumulation of dust on a car extracted from long storage lends a mystique to it and stimulates one's imagination. Don't we all like to be bs'd?

  13. It was 1950, I was a first year college kid, living in old wooden barracks left over from the WWII Navy V12 program at UVa. I'd just sold my '35 Ford and had $150 jingling in my pocket, and a yen for some new upgraded wheels. I spotted the wrecked '40 Roadmaster sedan at the Buick place and inquired about it. They were happy to unload it for $75. It was said that it had rear-ended a '39 Ford so hard that it drove it up a bank. Luck came my way quicker than expected when another '40 RM came my way for $50. It actually ran, but had rolled over, was a rust bucket, and was missing its passen
  14. Upon close examination it doesn't look quite right to me, a knockoff perhaps. Where's Kaiser?
