My new acquisition as of yesterday. 1931 Chrysler CD-8  De Luxe Sedan from the Denver area.  25 year old restoration and I am sure I will be posting lots of questions.

 

Now I need to get it home to Tacoma WA.

Hey Marty

Here's a pic of my 12 Oakland 40 on tour about 10 years ago with my wife and I in it. We've been touring it since 1987 when I finally finished the 10 year restoration. Had it on tour last summer. It's been a great runner over the years. I've put over 25000 miles on it!

Ken, that 1912 Oakland Model 40 is a fine, and beautiful machine.

Hopefully we'll get to tour together.

 

The prior pic was taken the first month we had the ‘12. This shot is of my Oakland Model 30 after enhancements including paint and tires.

Wish I had been able to start with a car as good as yours. Here's a pic of it back when I got it. It was found in 1962 but wasn't touched until I bought it.  I bought a complete but all apart body from Ray Graber in California for it. We had to do all the wood and a lot of rust repair but I'm very happy with the finished product. Ray was restoring a model 40 too. He built a new body for his. He took his on a trans continental tour after it was done! Don't know where that car is today.

Since I mention my wife fairly often, we came across this picture and I scanned it. Give her an old truck, some fertilizer, and a little topsoil for a big smile.

I sold the truck and she doesn't do much topsoil, but something still makes her smile.

 

Just to add a picture to the words.

That's very reminiscent of the '48 WILLYS pickup my dad had.

It's the one in which I learned to drive....... 😊

With some warm weather hitting and cars coming out from a long winters rest, I thought this thread needed revived. 
 

Here we have me driving by as my dad took a video. As still as it looks, I was likely going about 25mph. After a few quick cranks with the ignition off to prime things up, the Hupmobile came to life on the first quarter turn.

Great thread, folks! Thanks for starting it @victorialynn2

 

This is me and Lauren on the Bonneville Salt Flats during a our transcontinental Lincoln Highway trip in May 2014.

 

My wife says she has rarely seen me as happy as I was during this somewhat fraught "Big Trip."

My wife and I at Pebble Beach with our 1915 Packard Special Roadster. The car was built and driven by Carl G. Fisher, the man who built the Indy 500, The Lincoln Highway, Miami Beach and more! He drove it as the Pace car in the 1915 Indy 500 race as well as the Fall Classics of the same year. He also used the car to survey parts of the Lincoln Highway. It is basically all original except for late 20's repaint by Eddie Rickenbacker when he owned the Speedway.

That's so cool! Carl G. Fisher must have been an absolute force of nature—I built up some familiarity with him when working on my Lincoln Highway 101 book.

I can't compete with Carl Fisher's Packard, but here's one to add to the four I posted on Page 1 of this thread.  I still think it's one of the best threads on the forum, and I'm really enjoying it.  Thank you, VL2, and all those who have participated.

Took this photo over the weekend, not the best car in my collection, but it is my favorite car. I am the third owner of this piece of Chevrolet history. Every time I drive it I feel like I am 20 years old again, until I have to get out of it..... 

 

This was at George Albright's Charity show in Ocala Florida. George is a contributor to this site and also the Tax Collector for Marion County FL and runs a great show where the money goes to charity! Great Job George thanks

It was on the July 4 1977 Car club tour and camping trip at Lake of the Woods, when this beautiful Packard 734 boat tail speedster arrived and parked near my dad's '31 Chevy. The owner, Julian Eccles, had driven over from his home in Klamath Falls for a visit. That kid in the goofy black hat staring at the car was me.  The story told around the campfire that night was Bill Harrah wanted one of these for his collection, and had borrowed this car so that his team of talented restorers could build a copy on a donor car chassis.

Julian was a wonderful man. I went over to Klamath Falls to check out his 1929 Chrysler 75 so I could get an idea of what mine could look like. He let me crawl all over that car.

Whoever owned it, must have been pride of ownership. Just look at how it has been skillfully "leaded".   -    CC

Me and my 1915 Buick C-36 Roadster. Acquired the car in 2006 from the estate of a very close friend. It has been written up in a few publications. July of 2008 Buick Bugle for one. It has been a lot of fun to show and tour with over the years.
