I thought I would share a picture of what we have been dealing with in the high desert of Utah. Most everything is put to bed for the winter. All of the early cars are in the garage. This poor Alvis gets to sleep in the snow.

White Automobile Questions

I have not found any information about a White Club for antique autos. Does one or even a registry exist? I have a few questions about White automobiles, gas not steam.

I had the thought that the frame member, built from typical angle iron would have the vert. leg longer that the orizontal leg. I agree, without any experience, 1/4" would probably be suitable.
