So if a CDO, 1cyl Cadillac or some big brass interests you then contact me off list

If my pocketbook matched my interest level, I'd be giving you a call. How about teasing us all with a few photos?

Yeah, Erik H, I resemble that remark. If my pocketbook matched my interest, I would have never sold half the cars I have over the years. I would LOVE to have a 1-cylinder Cadillac! But I would like either the CDO or Stanley even MORE! I don't know what all Les S has for "big brass", but I like almost all of them.

At the risk of being accused of blasphemy, Les S, I wonder if you could tell why you would want to lose the high-level brass cars in favor of the Ts? I love model Ts, and decided a long time ago that I never ever again wanted to not have at least one good tourable T. I do understand that things like one cylinder Cadillacs and CDOs or any steam car requires a lot of time maintaining per hour of touring. Many hobbyists begin to retire the high end horseless carriages in favor of touring with their Ts for that very reason.
Just curious.
Drive carefully, and do enjoy the cars! W2

What I enjoy most is making things, restoring cars, building radical T engines. The "other" cars are restored and just sit there. Most of them I haven't driven in 5-10 years. Someone else should be enjoying them!!
Hope this makes sense

Les, I look forward to pics of your great cars. Also, do you have specific Ts you'll look for if you sell your other brass.

Good luck. Sometimes, half the fun is the chase......

You could just bring me one down when you come next week. I could find something to do with it.

Uh huh

Les,
Having a friend with a mindset similar to yours, is what helped me to get pre-T car into my collection. My friend had a cute little Maxwell that had been sitting for a long time and he was too busy with other restoration projects to fix the carburetor and get it back on the road. So, he offered it to me for a fair price, knowing that I would care for it and drive it often. My wife calls it her anniversary present and seems to love it at least as much as I do.

Thanks, for all that you do for the antique car hobby. It's nice to hear that you want to see your cars going to people that will drive them.

Les,
I would drive the Stanley a LOT. I have some trades possible; 26 Barn-fresh tudor, '53 Dodge P/U, player piano, and all sorts of stuff. Money?? Uh, not much of that around here!

The 26 Tudor might get my attention. Unfortunately a '13 Stanley does not come cheap. My real point is I am trying to reduce life's burdens.
For those who have contacted me I have emailed some pictures

Sorry no Overland stuff. I guess I should confirm that I am not selling "junk piles"

Charlie, were the pictures I emailed you couple weeks ago an Overland.

Les, I understood that, so my posting really was in some jest. I know Coffin-nosed Stanleys are a bit on the pricey side--but HEY, it was worth asking!! :-)
In case I run across anyone (might happen; I do know steam folks), how's the boiler & what kind of burner? My little steamcar had a slotted burner, but it could still howl like the drilled ones!
