Last week I started up a 1921 Dodge Brothers screenside truck that had last run in 1933. After lots of careful prep work, oil change, new battery cables, and the like, I stepped on the starter button. That 12 volt starter/generator noiselessly cranked the engine up and it settled into a perfect idle. This kind of thing just never gets old. This old Dodge is one of the best sounding DB's I have heard, it only has 6800 miles on the clock. Sadly, I can't drive it because it has sat outside all of its life and the wheels are beyond use. The owner will have to find replacements or pony up a bunch of cash for respoking the wheels. It will probably be sold to someone else who will deal with that. Sure is fun to bring old machines back to life.
