Re: 5th annual Mid-Atlantic Prewar Swap Meet in Luray, Virginia May 17th and 18th

I am contemplating making the trip to Luray from Iowa. I think I saw somewhere that there is a KOA or Yogi Bear campground nearby that I can bring my teardrop camper to. I would need electrical hookup. Thanks, Mike

OT but T folks might be able to assist

If you are like me you may also have a Model A or two in your stable. I am searching for a good restorable 1930-31 Model A roadster pickup body. I have all of the rest of the parts but the body is toast. Please send a PM if you have something. Thanks, Mike

Re: U & J carburetor and manifold

For what it is worth. I have made several deals with Stan Howe. In each and every instance Stan was right up front with me and told/warned me that it would take time as I was not at the head of the line. In all of these cases he had a carb for sale and if I wanted it I needed to "take it off the mar...

Re: August 1910. Ford re-enters track racing.

This thread is awesome and history is revealing itself through intense curiosity and a genuine desire to investigate and validate the facts. Doesn’t get any better with any hobby. Rob, when can we have another little peak at your racer and the progress, the suspense is killing some us?

J. Brown carbide generator brass tags

I will have a few of these very very rare brass tags for the early brass carbide generators. They are difficult to produce so I do not part with them unless I am building carbide generators. I have a few extra and I have had folks request them. This will probably be one of the only times I will sell...

Re: What are these holes in the cylinder wall of a Ford Special motor?

Hmmmm, a compression release could be a logical explanation. I have had 4 stroke motorcycles with large bores, high compression and no electric start. You simply could not kick start one of these without the compression release. That said it would need to seal completely or you would have compressio...
