Re: Yesterday's trash is today's treasure

Those old movies are a large part of why I became interested in old cars and particularly the Model T. I try to treat them better than shown in those clips but wonder if I would have caught the bug without them.

Great picture Herb. Rapid Motor Vehicle Company was founded in 1902. They were acquired by General Motors in 1909.

Re: Speedster or not ?

What fun it must have been. Two things I noticed, the front radius rod seems to go under the axle and the brake rod seems to be missing. Although the seat looks big to me the rear door post looks like a '09 or '10 T Touring.
The air pressure is probably just right for sand.
Cool Pic!

Re: Valley floor

They look very relaxed enjoying their vacation. I enjoy seeing the portable gramophone and what looks like a lady diving on the Touring radiator. Also the large wind wings look great. The coupe far in the background at left suggests to me it could be 1929 or '30.

That's a great photo. The pumps are cute.
I think that is a 1923 Touring with a low hood and cowl.

That is interesting Perry. Originally, the silo wasn't intended to launch but an accident. A surplus of hotcadutinary leaked under it and static electricity from the yard arm provoke an eruption.
Bobby Gantry wrote two songs about the event, one predated the actual mishap.

These are some more White Trucks. White Motor Co. sent it to me. It is taken in the northern part of the Park perhaps near Gardner.

These were used to take supplies to the hotels and other facilities. It was maybe 1918 plus or minus a year or two.

Yes, That is a White radiator. White sold primarily a chassis. Bodies were up to the user and several firms made them. This is a very unusual one. The mining must have been pretty good to afford a nice bus like that in 1924.

That's a great looking car. It must be a lot of fun. My Speedster is a February car too. 1920 though.
