  1. I think the members of your organization will enjoy WHERE THEY RACED: Speed Demons in the City of Angels -- a documentary film about the early days of racing & automotive innovation. As an independent producer, I am reaching out to car clubs across the nation in an effort to share the fading history of early car and racing culture. My goal is to raise awareness of the film with as many fans who have had a life long love affair with the automobile and to preserve this history for future generations. We just won the "Best of 2013" award from the Motor Press Guild!
  2. I am looking for information regarding a 1931 Bentley 4.5L Supercharged that was a part of the Klein Collection in the mid to late 60s. I am specifically looking for a contact who might have photos of when the car was in the collection, how they acquired the car, and anything that might be helpful in documenting the history of the car. If anyone knows a good contact please be in touch. I know Ann was quite active in the car community so I imagine somebody would be able to help with this matter. Thanks so much in advance! Kalila
  3. I am reviewing the Register of Antique Automobiles Joint Listing AACA - VMCCA - HCCA, compiled and published by the AACA in 1957 as I research the provenance of some of our cars. In addition to the names of the pioneer collectors back then, several museums are listed. All the museums are familiar to me, save one... I keep finding a reference to the "T.P. Museum" ... Does any one know what museum this was? Appreciate any leads... Roberto at the Seal Cove Auto Museum
  4. Hi all! I am looking for any and all information relating to the Washington car built by the Carter Motor Car Co. in Hyattsville, MD from 1909 - 1912. As far as I am aware, there is only one left in existence, a 1909 Model A1 30hp Touring car. It is this car I am focusing my senior thesis on. I am a senior Historic Automotive Restoration Technology major at McPherson College. Below is an outline of what I have uncovered and what I would still like to find more information on: 1. I plan on establishing the history of the Washington car. I have tracked down the book written about Maryland automobile manufactures and a few articles that appeared in the journals and periodicals of the period. Does anybody out there have further information regarding the make? I read through the other thread on this forum but would like to rehash the question to see what else might be lurking in the shadows. Does anybody have any period photographs? I have been checking ebay and shorpy but haven't came up with much. How many Washington's were built? Who were their customers? Any accounts of the Washington factory? What is the exact location of the factory and is the building still there? 2. I am tracking down events Washington cars competed in. I have found evidence of 3 Washington's competing in the 1909 Frank A. Munsey Reliability Run as well as in the 1910 running of this event. Again, period photos are huge as well as records of the cars that were involved, accounts, etc. I am attempting to connect the remaining Washington to this event. Additionally, in 1913 a Women's suffrage motorcade left Hyattsville, MD, the Washington's home. I would be very interested to discover if a Washington was involved in this event. 3. Establish a record of ownership. Most of the following information was found in RM's Catalogue from the cars sale in 2012 and 2004. The Model A1 that I am focusing on was purchased in 1936 by Francis George DuPont and owned until 1980 by the DuPont family. George's father was the creator of the DuPont motor cars. The Washington was first? restored in the 1950s by George. Who owned the car from 1909 to 1936? Are there any records of DuPont with the Washington? Are there any photos from this period? Are there any records of the restoration? It seems the car was then purchased by Robert Sahl in 1980 who toured with the car until having it restored in the early 1990s by, I believe, Dragone restorations. There are accounts of the car under Sahl's ownership in the Horseless Carriage Club's magazine but they are mostly captions to photos. If someone knows of an article that appeared on the car I would love to see it! The index on their web site only seemed to point to the captions that I found and a couple of photos. Any records of the car under Sahl's ownership? Any photos from touring events Sahl entered? Any photos from shows the Washington attended? It was at Connecticut’s Greenwich Concours d’Elegance in 1997. Does anybody have photos from this event? The Washington was offered at the 2004 Amelia Island RM auction. I am unsure if the owner who sold it here was Sahl or someone else. In 2004 it was purchased by John O'Quinn and made its way into Bill Ruger's collection sometime after that. In 2012 it was sold at the St. John's RM auction to its current owner. 1909 Washington 30HP Five-Passenger Touring | St. John's 2012 | RM AUCTIONS Any help filling in the gaps would be fantastic! 4. Any other relevant photos, documents, or information! Best Regards, Casey Maxon
  5. Hello All! New to AAC I have a 1971 Pontiac Lemans that I bought back in 1987. The used car dealer I bought it from said it was driven up from a southern state. By the looks of it that's true but I would love to see for sure where it spent its first years. I recently applied for a title but the woman did not know if that's even possible. Thanks for any info or direction on this matter.
  6. Hi. Can anyone help with any history for my '63 please? She was imported to the UK from Texas in 2007. The title papers showed last owner was a Mr Conley in Corpus Christi. US tag number was FYW 94T. Chassis number is 7J1070513. Body is FB24661 build week 03B (March 63?) in Flint. Original colour was Desert sand. I'd be interested in any info if anyone knew the car whilst still in the States. If Jim's still collating data, she has deluxe interior, AC, remote mirror, cornering lights, spare wheel on trunk floor, power aerial, vacuum trunk release, tinted glass. Also, paint appears to be pearlescent. I'm guessing that Arctic White was a flat finish? Many thanks. Dave.
