Has any one manufactured a home made Flower Vase Holder? I want to make a couple of holders for my
1927 Fordor.

I would like to find something a little cheaper and nicer. Maybe homemade design and simple. Does your car have bud vases?
Thank you. Dan

Buy or make your own just look at the ones in the online catalogs for ideas. I would add a strip of felt or such on the inside to prevent scratches to the glass. Google bud vase and see what comes up.

I hammered out a scrap of 1/16 inch thick aluminum to give it shape, filed it nice oval about an inch long and 1/2 inch wide for the part that screws onto the door post.
For the square bracket, the size and look was perfect, so I cut the non-screw-slots part off of a large stainless steel hose clamp and flattened it out, then carefully bent the corners to fit the vase I had. I used two small rivets and set them by small hammer to hold the parts together (after drilling appropriate holes in both parts).
Looks very nice in my coupe. Took about two hours, and didn't cost me a nickel.

I made mine, mostly because I couldn't find the correct ones for the square shaped vases.

Mr Booth,

They look great.
