My '13 Speedster didn't quite make it. We got it running yesterday, but didn't have enough time to sort it out for the trip to Pasadena. Here's a link to photos from the send off this morning. Many Model T's in attendance.

Bill-
Thanks for sharing. Who owns the red brass speedster with the snake horn?

What Jay Leno there? What did he bring?

I didn't get any names. Sorry. That speedster is very close to what I want mine to look like when completed.
No, Jay Leno wasn't there. I've been attending this event for over 15 years & this is the first time I didn't see Mr. Leno.

Watch for the post about the Red White Steam.

Jay was in a red "White" steam car, very nice car, I had never seen anything like that before, the motor leaked oil out of the cylinder top (open top) I hate to be the guy that has to clean the garage floor, but other than that, a very nice car.

Towncar

Dessert was at Loren Burch's, as the usual providers, the Hunters, have their Pope Hartford hauling the Mayor of Pasadena in the parade Friday.

All this is hidden from the street. Loren has a lifetime of projects for several people.

More of the Burch place. That's a RR station, and the track goes around part of the property.

Thanks Ralph for posting pics, did your wife enjoy the outing? For me going to the HME is on my bucket list. Someday.... J

Wife didn't go; she was into holiday recovery. Pete picked the nicest route for the tour this year, so I saved the course directions, and will take her on the tour on Friday, along with viewing the floats after the parade. We probably won't take the T, so won't be able to look around as much.

The weather is always good on New Year Day here - it never rains on the parade. The flatlanders see that, and come pouring in.

Rear trunk of a 1941 Tatra.

On the outside, the Tatra looks just like this Zephyr, only different. The original Zephyr design had a rear engine V8, too. Both Porsche and Tjaarda, designer of the Zephyr, copied Tatra.

Ralph is that a 1911 Cadillac roadster? What year is the town car? Is it an original?

Thanks

Herb

Herb, I would guess the Cad is a little later than 1911, as it appears to have a self-commencer. I didn't look closer, as there was just too much to see.

The 1915 appearing Towncar belongs to Wayne Erickson of Gilbert Metal Products fame in El Monte. It has 1918 engine and other later parts. He bought it out of 50 year storage in the last couple of years. The garage door had sunk so much they had to drag it out on the hubs.

I had guessed the blue Towncar to be 1911, due to the firewall height. Gorgeous piece, huh?

ALL: you can copy any pic to your computer by right clicking on it, then "save picture as". If you have need for higher resolution, I might accommodate, but the emails get big fast.

The Cadillac Roadster is a 1912. The big lip on the front fenders & wood cowl rule out a '13.

Here's a side view of a 1912 Caddy.

I was surfing craigslist and found this on the St. Louis site.

2 cadillac wood wheels.

I don't know anything else, but maybe someone knows someone who would be interested.

Lessee, I have a sidelamp from a 1912 Cad, and must have some parts left from our '79 Seville. Maybe I could build a Johnny Cash 1912, '28, '54, '79 .. Cadillac. :-)
