Your own project/driver/show car.

Recommended Posts

I am sure everyone knows what I have but I wanted to share.

Here is my daily driver : Tiffany

My 'show' car (laughing) is the 1947 Cadillac. Actually it is also a driver.

The Flying Dutchman

And my current project for which The Dutchman must be sold, the 1956 Cadillac 6219 sedan :

Vida Boheme

She looks a little (?) rough but believe me, all her parts are there and EVERYTHING works...electrical and mechanical. I was very pleasantly pleased. <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Thank you, Susan. Good to see you online again. I would love to see your cars!!

Sorry to hear about Cotton. All my animals are neutered or spayed starting back when I was a child. Our family has taken animal health very seriously.

Do set up a gallery! It is easy and fun to look at occasionally. I keep adding to mine. The white '72 Eldorado is my sons. That 1969 Oldsmobile Holiday coupe was mine until a drunk teen totalled it July 4th two years ago. That is why I got Tiffany. I still miss that unrestricted 455!!

The '69 and Tiffany are all original 'survivors' in near pristine condition. Got both for a song too. Just to let you know there are great cars still out there.

Bob,

Now THERE'S a REAL truck! cool.gif

(Not like these "fluffy four-wheel-drives" that pollute the highways! )

There's a family-run truck body company in Wilkes-Barre that has a 1919 Indiana in their shop, gathering dust since before I was born...

I love pictures of these pre-Depression dump trucks - especially the so-called "road-builder" models that had no cab, and no dump canopy over the driver...wonder how many drivers got "headaches" while being loaded... tongue.gif

Thanks Steve,

My mom is having some very severe problems with the cornea on her left eye in additon to rising pressures in that eye due to glaucoma. I have been going to doctor appts. with her and my dad to make sure they catch everything.

All the photos we currently have of the "Sprint" will have to be scanned in as they are not digial. frown.gif To get new ones I would have to go to the garage and the basement and take photos of all the "pieces" then we could have a contest to put the photos together to see the whole car. grin.gif

Frank,

Thanks for the tip on the 1919. That guy contacted me about 2 months ago acting like he wanted to sell the truck but thinks it is worth 25k! That truck might be worth half that if it were restored to better than new condition but I would love to have it in the condition it is in now and get it running. Maybe you can go tell him what it is realy worth and to call Bob back so I can go get it!

Bob
