1913 Hood

Recommended Posts

Is there anybody in the Sacramento area that could pick up this hood for me.

In America it's a hood. A bonnet is what girls wear when their messy hair is uncontrollable.

 

In the UK it's a bonnet, to hide the messy engine when it's uncontrollable.

 

Australia, take your pick.

Being a Canadian who lives an hour drive from the USA I sometimes forget things.  When I read the colours for my 1915 McLaughlin touring car was a dark blue body and black bonnet, I thought blue car with a black top.  Then my English came back.

 

Rod, do you have a '13 Buick?  I'm going to a meet today where there will be two.

 

Regards, Gary

Gary,

     Yes, I do...  One of those on your tour will be Larry Schramm's (A 1913 Model 31 just like yours and mine).

Garry,  Unfortunately in Aust,  complete unrestored brass cars are unobtainable. If  you  pick up a trailer load of parts you consider yourself lucky, and then look for missing parts and parts that can be used for patterns.   My engine number is 6011  which makes it a 1912.  I would have prefered to buy a complete or older restoration.  This one was recently for sale for US $36,500  but with the low Aust $ it put it out of my reach.  You have a beautiful car.  Hopefully when I get over to the US,   I,ll get to go for a ride in your,s and Marks  cars.
