I'll be there selling and Looking with my son.
I'll be there with buddy Martin Vowell.
We went, we sold a moderate amount. I met some really nice folks. Worse thing about the day, A late 20's- early 30's Lincoln roadster caught fire in the show area. Lots of ready helpers headed over with extinguisher's and got it out. Never a good thing. I hope no one was hurt (didn't hear of any) and hope not too much damage.
We saw that Lincoln pull in and noticed right away that it was way bigger than a Model A. His sign said "1925 Lincoln Roadster"...very nice car, looked like you'd get a real workout changing tires on that beast.
Too bad it caught fire, he was real careful keeping foot prints off the running boards, had a black piece of thick paper taped where the doors are.
Some of the other cars we saw...
Brand X...1925 Chrysler
This real nice 1930 Model A Town Sedan
1930 Ford 2-Door Sedan
1915 Ford Touring rust bucket, which looked like it was pulled from a field nearby...the driver was dressed like a "Hillbilly"...but I think hillbillies cars would probably look nicer, than this one did
Although, that being said, it sure did sound nice...running a 26-27 engine.
Sadly, I didn't get a picture of a really nice car, I got pictures of the headlights, tail and side lights, but not the whole car...my camera ran out of room. Anyhoo, it's for sale. The car is a 1914 Runabout, fairly new tires, even though the restoration was older, it looks like new. The owner, is running a 12 Volt system, installed halogen headlights in such a why you would not notice, he encased them in high temp plastic and stain the plastic to look like soap stone.
The side and tail lights he installed LED's. He has it set up with white LED's for running lights and the orange one in the center is the turn signal.
What's really clever is how he hid the wiring...
He silver soldered a small diameter copper tube to the top of the mounting bracket and ran the wires through to the firewall.
He's looking to sell it, wants something with a few more speeds than 2. But this is really a nice car, with a lot of the modern amenities. His area code is 818, which is the San Fernando Valley.
Here's another shot, it got really pretty wheels
On that rustbucket Martin, it's only original once.
Geo n L.A.
Lol, maybe George, but I think a little restorative help here and there would be beneficial, not detrimental to it's "originalness".
