  1. Without doubt this is the best thread ever, thanks everyone participating!
  2. The challenge is the second one. "46 Chevy maybe? But the grille bars appear to be vertical.
  3. A very poor copy of a copy of a picture taken in the yard of the Blake Brothers, Barry and Bob, of Arlington, Va. The white chain drive midget was said to be powered by a 4 cylinder Henderson motorcycle engine. Note the model T front axle and the tow bar used for flat-towing to the track.
  4. It's a dash plaque given to attendees showing their vehicles at the meet. The tank is probably on it because of the proximity of the Aberdeen Proving Grounds.
  5. The snow is plied a bit higher on the hood and roof than on the fender because of their flatter shapes. The headlight is quite high up in relation to the top of the grille, and it bulges out. The '37's had its headlights IN the fender, positioned lower, and they didn't bulge out as much. It may be a '35 based on the apparent concave slope of the rear of the front fender. Just thoughts from the peanut gallery...
  6. Golly, I thought that back side looked familiar. Strangely though, it says the same thing but the wording is laid out differently.
  7. Another fabric accessory often seen hanging on front bumpers while traveling in the day. This example does not appear to be a period item but rather of more recent origin.
  8. My only recollection from back in the day was one that advertised 7UP on the rear of a Model A roadster.
  9. A drawing of the one-off L29 sedan that I received from Franklin Hershey who designed it. He told me that an error occurred in laying out the top, which caused the height at the windshield to come out 1 inch lower than planned.
  10. More down to earth uses for old hubcaps; an Early V8 cap to repair a vintage calling card receiver with its base missing, and a Peugeot 403 hubcap providing a replacement foundation for tiles
  11. Two one-off L29 Cords. These photo copies were made during visits by the late Jack Willis and I in the '70's to Mrs. Agnes Leamy, wife of acclaimed ACD designer Al Leamy, from originals in her late husband's files, which she had lovingly cared for over the decades since his passing. In the late '70's I received a thank you letter from John Martin Smith in behalf of the ACD Museum thanking me for helping to get Mrs. Leamy to donate all of Al's material to the Museum. I had persuaded her to not give it to the Smithsonian.
  12. Even with a helper, standing there shaking it is a tough chore. Using an old tire with the right size opening, inserting the tank in it and rolling it around would take off some of the strain. Gloves required.
