Re: Could someone help ID car?

My guess would be a 1928 +/- Willys Overland.

Re: How Late Use of Chain Drive And Friction Drive Transmiss

There are most likely several people that know the answer but won't post it! Frustrating! However, CarterCar was a friction drive car. We actually had 3 of them at one time in our club. A 1907, and I think a 1912, and a 1915! My friend Frank owned the 07 and 15. The 07 is a good looking, good runnin...

Re: water pump / wood spokes

Hello, A nice man on this very board turned me on to an epoxy type product called "Git Rot". I found it to work very well on the gaps in my spokes because it flows (sometimes to much and too fast!) Get the syringes to apply it with. My advice would be to mix it in very small batches, because a littl...

Any way to delete all the scammers and hackers here?

I'm sure you've all noticed the phony attempts to get us to click on their hidden link. Don't do it! It would be nice to have them gone. romanze7 thirstytwo johnwick88 etc. They're all the same. Beware.

Re: Need help removing new wood spokes so I can powder coat

Those who made suggestions to you are wise. Mask and paint. Trust me. My 14 Overland was done this way in the early 90's and it still looks great. Don't invite problems!

Re: Who builds wood wheels, west coast or other

Try Jim Kahne (Connie), in West Linn, Oregon. Unless you're in a hurry. He does a quality job, in my opinion.

Re: 19th Annual Skagit/Snohomish Fall Tour

Too bad great tours like this take place after school has started. I would recommend this one. I know there are many reasons to have tours after Labor Day. We attended many of these before our kids entered school, but now it's just not feasible unless we were to leave the kids home, and the stars al...

Re: 1929 Chevrolet International odometer

Does the speedometer work and the odometer not work? Or do they both not work? If you're handy, it wouldn't hurt to take it out and see if it turns with a drill motor, maybe look inside for obvious issues. I've had work done at Bob's Speedometer, and it is good quality. Just bring your wallet, becau...

Re: Automobubbling in Brandywine

Great looking cars! What is the red touring (probably the photographers) that is partially shown in a couple shots, and then with the two ladies in front of it? Looks beautiful.

I'm not a Cadillac guy, but didn't they introduce the V8 in 1914?

Gravel Road Discussion

Regarding Gil's comment about the gravel road "country lane" touring. I think if it's advertised up front in the tour description then people can decide if they want to participate or not. What rankles many folks is when there is little or no mention of it, even in the morning drivers meeting, when ...

Thank you! Awesome report!

In my opinion we need more posts like this. Even for short tours. Love seeing cars from across the country and hearing about tours. Good stuff.

Portland Regional Group 50th Anniversary Tour

Frank and Laura Hurley hosted the PRG with a tour celebrating the 50th year of the club on Sunday. The well attended function was a fantastic tribute to the past, as well as looking ahead to the future. Several founding members or founding members families were there, making it an even more special ...

Swell.

I'm sure most people can take 3 weeks off, just not me. Good luck.

And FYI, tours aren't parades and picnics. I hate parades. But I do love cold fried chicken fwiw.

Good topic to bring up.

Ever since I was a little kid touring with my parents, I can remember people in the various clubs saying "we need to get more young members". As a member of a local HCCA club with an aging membership, this topic comes up from time to time as well. Although I'm 50, I'm still called one of the "kids" ...

Sorry Charlie.

Seems to me that you are in a way over your head. I've followed this thread, and there are all kinds of necessary questions brought up, like bolt diameter, grade, stretch, etc. You've got a great car. Take this in the best way possible. Perhaps you should look for an experienced antique car engine b...
