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...

Ok, who's garage is that?? Wow!

Quite a variety of cars.

Also, what is the white colored brass touring car shown in the parking lot early in the video? I can't quite figure it out.

Thanks,

Thank you both Gil and Herb!

Thank you both so much for the references. I appreciate you taking the time to help me out. I was able to get insured in time to take our "rustic" 29 Lincoln Fire Truck on our club's annual tour in The Dalles, Oregon. Happy kids, happy parents!

Thank you again.

Experience with Grundy Insurance

I thought I would pass along my experience with Grundy Auto Insurance that I had all my cars insured with. We have been a customer of Grundy for at least 20 years, as that is who my father had all our cars insured with upon his passing in 1994. I'm not sure how many years prior to that he was with t...

This is America

I'm glad you responded with your opinion of the vendor in question. I have no opinion either way, as I am not familiar with them. But I think it is only fair to point out that Mr Leonard has a right to his opinion, just like you and I. Perhaps the work he had done their wasn't their best effort. May...

Thanks for the reporting and posting of photos!

What a great time it looks like. Beautiful cars, scenery, and sun! Thanks again. This board needs more posting on tours like this. It's fun to see new cars, and see places one has never been. Also good to daydream about getting the old car fired up and on the road after the snow and slush have depar...
