Hi, Graham fans. My name is Todd Ruel, and I collect films by and about orphan car films. I run a web site called Gone Autos. In his first book on Graham, author Michael Keller mentions a number of movies that Graham-Paige produced in its early years, but how many of us have actually seen one? Now you can. Last night, I uploaded a 1928 G-P training film called . Keller mentions it in The Graham Legacy: Graham-Paige to 1932 on page 162. Click to check it out. I hope you like it.Then tell me one thing: what G-P model is pictured at the beginning and end of the movie? All 1920's cars look alike to me, so it's very difficult for me to figure it out. I'm definitely not a Graham-Paige expert. Enjoy! ----Todd Ruel Owner/Driver, Gone Autos
Guest posted a topic in Studebaker, Erskine & RockneStudebaker fans, Gone Autos, a web site devoted entirely to orphan cars, has published a new podcast featuring Studebaker uber-historian Richard Quinn. You can listen to it here: GA-007: Lew Minkel + Richard Quinn. I asked Richard for an interview, because I have a metal-acetate recording of Marketing Vice-President Lew Minkel talking to Los Angeles-area Studebaker dealers about the 1962 model year. I always wanted to learn more about this time in Studebaker's history, so I asked Richard to give me some context and background. He was great, and...well, listen for yourself: GA-007: Lew Minkel + Richard Quinn If you have an iPod, you can download the podcast through the Gone Autos iTunes Channel. It's available right now. There's something in this podcast for everyone. For diehards, you get to hear the rich mellifluous tones of Richard Quinn calmly explaining what Studebaker was up to in '62. For new fans, this podcast is a great way to get a snapshot of Studebaker at one particular point in its history. Richard knows the whole story, and he doesn't disappoint. For everyone else, I spent a crazy amount of hours digitally restoring two 1962 Studebaker radio commercials. You'd have to be a total Luddite not to check out this podcast. Enjoy it, Studey fans! And then tell me what you think! I'm ALWAYS interested in your feedback!! ----Todd Ruel Top Wrench, Gone Autos: Tools for Living the Orphan Car Life Gone Autos: Tools for Living the Orphan Car Life

Guest posted a topic in Automobiles and Parts - Buy/SellOrphan Car Fans, Hi, my name is Todd Ruel, and I run a web site devoted exclusively to orphan cars. I've been producing podcasts devoted to orphan cars. My latest podcast features an interview with Geoff Hacker of Forgotten Fiberglass.com. Geoff and his pal Rick D'Louhy are on a mission to restore and preserve America's fiberglass-bodied sports car heritage. They want to make sure that people know as much about Glasspar, Victress, and LaDawri as they do about Corvette and Avanti. It's an epic story about America's do-it-yourself fiberglass pioneers told by an amazing do-it-yourself historian. Check out this podcast (and my others) on the Gone Autos Podcast Page.
