The real bonus for me in traveling the country are the places & people I get to meet along the way ... happy.gif 

Sunday I was fortunate to visit Skip Seaton in New Salem, PA at his restoration shop & take some pictures. 

Skip is a lifetime member of the AACA along with: 

The  MTFCA & MTFCI
The Studebaker Driver's Club 
The Horseless Carriage Club 
The Nash Car Club of America 
The Hudson-Essex Terraplane Club 
The Veteran Motor Car Club of America 
The Model A Restorer's Club 

He had (4) Model T cars undergoing restoration when I visited ... 


Enjoy !

My favorite vehicle in Skip's personal collection is this 1915 Apperson Jack Rabbit ...

Skip followed this car for years before he was able to buy it.

It is an original un restored survivor - perhaps the only complete surviving example of this model.

 

Enjoy!

I had lunch with Skip yesterday in Uniontown, PA at Mark C's Diner.

 

He is helping me research The Crow & Crow-Elkhart Motor Companies in Elkhart, Indiana.

 

 

These are images of a 1942 Lincoln Zypher Convertible Skip restored. 
There are 7 believed to exist according to the Lincoln Zypher owners club.
Some of the 7 are parts cars.
This is the 3rd one to be restored.
It took 5 years to complete including 2 years at the trim shop.
When it came to Skip it was all apart and incomplete.
He over saw Paint and Body work & had all the plating done,
He did all stainless repair and polishing - all assembly and adjustments.
First showing was at 2017 AACA Fall meet in Hershey PA where it won a 1st Junior award.
It was selected for consideration for a National Award at the AACA Annual Meeting in Feb. at Philadelphia, PA.
It won the Ford Lincoln Mercury Award.
The next showing will be at Gettsyburg, PA in July.
