Mark, you have an interesting car.

Because this forum reaches beyond North America,

you should tell where the car is located:  England?

New England?  British Columbia?  British Guiana?


Also, a phone number--some way to contact you--

would be helpful.  Sometimes, newcomers to the forum

post ads or questions but never return to see the responses!

Thanks for providing your contact information.

From your e-mail address, I could look at your

interesting website.  


Not only are you well-versed in the early cars,

I see you're a steam-car expert.  You probably know

a couple of people that I know (though I'm not involved

in steam cars myself).
