  1. I have a picture somewhere, but I took my drivers license test in 1996, driving my 1925 Dodge touring, which I still own.
  2. Paul Dobbin, we were going to stay at the campground, but it is 9 miles from the hotel! Now it turns out we can stay in the trailer parking lot, which is where I will be (with the '11 Locomobile) and my parents (with the White Yellowstone bus) , both of us camping in our buses.
  3. I think I take the oldest car prize so far, my 1925 Dodge touring that my Grandfather bought in the early 70's. I have a picture somewhere of me and the dot man on the big day.
  4. I have looked at them, but what are peoples thoughts of Featherlite vs. ATC vs. InTech???
  5. I'm looking for a new trailer, 20' long, with 8' door for my big brass. Brands are all over the place, but you can get a NICE in tech for around $17,000. Somebody must have some thoughts??
  6. I personally can't disagree more with the not wanting to use "reproduction parts". You don't find original tires, and you don't find original cans of paint, some parts just are better to use new. I have had large brass cars with nice original tops, everything is good, right? Well as soon as you go to put new material on, you decide you should clean up the sockets and repaint them. As soon as you clean them you will find rust holes and slightly bent sockets. Why spend the money to put a new top on old sockets? They have a big job holding up a heavy top as the car rolls down the highway, g
  7. I have a set of 25" wheels I took off my 1911 White when I made the correct 27". They are a matched set of 4 wheels complete with split rims and good tires. Adam Awalkuphcca@hotmail.com
  8. Has anybody heard if Dave's business, specifically the distributor production, will continue? Would love to see somebody take that over and bring back the units the way Dave used to make them.

  10. What is another interesting topic that was mentioned early in this thread is what happens several owners down the road, specifically at auctions. My family has collected Stanley Steamers for years. Many of them were "put together" in the 60's -90's, and are now passed off as original cars. I sat at the Hershey auction a few years ago where a known "sweepings" car sold, and there was no mention of it being a fake. I was sitting next to an avid Stanley guy, and he could not believe what was being said (and not being said). Many of these cars have engine and other major components from much
  11. I'm sure it will be used a lot at our house. We have been touring in our 1911 White 40 hp which we have put over 5000 miles on in the last 2 years. We even drove it to the top of Pikes Peak last summer with our 3 year old son in the back seat. We bought the Locomobile so we can start doing some of the longer progressive tours. My only concern is how to preserve the condition of the car, especially the original interior while still using the car. Any suggestions??
  12. Does this lock in the open position, or do you have to hold it down? I am also looking for a quality cut out pedal that will lock open.
  13. In the "steam world" many of the cars that are currently in circulation are total reproductions. I have seen many Stanleys that do not have one piece of original anything, totally built out of either parts, or sometimes today they are built from total reporoductions parts. This was a real car, that was restored in the 1950's, then restored again in the 80's with a new wood body, as the originals start to "sag."
