After we get some gas let's stop by the Fairgrounds and watch them practice for tonight's show.

After the Fairgrounds let's go look at a Chevy coupe the Wally Campbell called me about. He said it only has 12,000 miles on it and it's clean and loaded, it might be a good winter car. I get tired of these drafty convertibles.

Maybe Wally Campbell will let us that Chevy Coupe downtown for a test drive and then we can go shopping.

On the way back from downtown I want to go over to Retreads shop and pick up the tires he did for the old truck. Then we can go next door to Speedy Sam's to get a new cable and call it an afternoon.

Submitted for your approval are two views of a brand new 1910 Breeze Motorbuggy. Built only one year in Carthage, Ohio by the Jewel Carriage Co., only two of these are known to exist. These photos were found on eBay a few years back; it's one of my favorite eBay stories.

Here are a few with kids...

First a well-used 1903 Curved Dash Oldsmobile (with 1910 Pennsylvania license plate).

Next another CDO, this time a 1904.

Lastly a 1907-ish Reo.

Great thread.

This photo shows the examining crew looking over this car entered in a Glidden Tour. I don't know what year but from judging by the large size of the tire I would guess it is early.

From what I have read in the past they checked cars over to make sure the entrants were playing by the rules. Let us know if you can identify the automobile.

The city picture that was posted today... did anyone notice the 2 very rare mid 30s Checkers waiting at the light by the drugstore? I have never seen any mention that any survive. I say mid 30's or a little newer due to the abbreviated front fenders. The earlier Checkers had normal fronts.

I did get to see in person, a maybe "only one left" 1931 Checker at a local show. I was blown away by the quality, design, and deco features..as well as the large size. It looks like a formal limo. I was telling the driver that it reminded me of a mix between an Auburn and a Cord. He said the car belongs to his boss who owns a cab company, and his boss said these Checkers were designed by E.L. Cord ??

One of the most impressive cars I have seen around here, for sure.
