  2. Opinions that are formed out of firsthand experience have merit. I tell stories from the road. I can upload long videos to Facebook at no cost and pay no storage fees to host them on my website. A few days ago I visited “ Battery Bob “ at The Lemay Family Collection at Marymount and posted several videos of my experience. Jim
  3. Here is a haul I did four years ago. Under the paint - #2 of 200 Transam Special Edition Black/Gold Built in 1978 I remember picking up this car. The new owner found it on Craigslist. I picked it up near Kingsburg, CA. You could almost see it from Hwy 99. It spent time at West Coast Dealerships. Then it disappeared. Jim
  4. If that question about the Buick Skylark is directed for me - I don’t know. I haven’t seen the car ... Jim
  5. Thank You Terry The OP emailed me but I am not available or interested in the haul. This morning I leave Tucumcari, New Mexico for Phoenix, Arizona to drop off this beautiful 1927 Model T Touring: Along the way I will be picking up this 1962 Buick Skylark that has been in the same family since 1964: That car is heading up I-5 after January 1st to Bellevue, Washington. I have room for a second vehicle from Phoenix, Arizona up to Bellevue, Washington & from Bellevue, Washington down to Auburn, California at this time. Then I have trips scheduled from California to Texas - Ohio - Wisconsin .... Jim
  6. Every vehicle I transport has a Story To Tell If I had to pick one image to sum up what I do - this would be it ... My friend Grant is behind the wheel of his newly acquired 1916 Stanley Mountain Steam Wagon. His friend Arthur is seated next to him - friends and neighbors help frame the moment. I had transported this vehicle down to Portland DMV from Anacortes, WA & back for inspection. In my trailer is a 1913 Stanley Mountain Steam Wagon that Grant just sold - it is headed to California. These would be my third and fourth Stanley Mountain Steam Wagons I was fortunate to transport. Grant would drive without lights to the Washington Ferry at Anacortes right after I took this shot. A bomb scare would delay their trip to Orcas Island where Grant owns & operates the only commercial tour service utilizing a Stanley Mountain Steam Wagon in North America. Grant & his wife Kathryn along with his Dad Kenny in Wichita, Kansas and Heather his caretaker are my friends now. <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> You can follow me on Facebook and Instagram I post information about stuff for sale I see all across the country along with interesting places I spot while driving ...

  7. Post a thread over on the MTFCA General Discussion Forum Looks like you have a Model T Speedster. @ Jim
  8. Arising Industries probably built your trailer - they use a full perimeter steel tube frame. I am on my (5th) trailer built by Arising Industries - all of which were built to my specs including “ full welds “. The last two have the ceiling - wall - floor joists on 12” centers. All of their trailers have had the sidewall framing break at the wheel well area. What I am pointing out to you about cutting into the sidewalk and making a hole is based on first hand experience. The roads in this country beat the hell out of trailers. Jim
  9. No trailer manufacturer would cut a floor to ceiling door without a header. You can’t order an enclosed trailer with a 76 inch door - they don’t make them that large because the opening comprises the structural integrity of the design. Jim
  10. Bad idea to cut a large hole in the side of your trailer. That is what you did by putting a side door in. Trailer manufacturers use framed flush doors for a reason. Height and width are limited so the trailer maintains structural integrity - there is a reason for a header support - just like a door in a structure. You destroyed the the sidewall integrity. That side gets the brunt of road vibration and hammering. Now it will start to flex - the crack the welds. Jim
  11. If you have a properly wired 7 way plug- there is a fused charge line. If the plug is correctly wired - you can extend that to inside your trailer to charge a 12VDC battery. Jim
  12. If you knew a farmer that raised soybeans for export or any other crop - if you took the time to have a conversation regarding tariffs with the grower or producer - you might actually get educated. Jim
