Nice work. It was always my understanding that the reason most cars had external service brakes was that they couldn't get as much advantage from the internal brakes.

What lining did you use?

Re: 1914 argo

Pretty tough to say when there are almost no other Argos around. You should keep in mind that most rare does not necessarily mean most valuable. To many it means "no parts available" or "no technical support" when something goes wrong. (The opposite of a Model T). To have a good value there must be ...

6th Biennial Reno Tour - 1960

Does anyone know if the 16mm film of the 1960 HCCA Reno Tour still exists? I've recently acquired the car that won "Most Desirable Car" at that event I'd I'd love to see it back then.

Vancouver Regional Group goes "Beyond Hope"

The tour was billed as being both historic and fun and that's what we got. We called it "Beyond Hope." 010-Beyond Hope.JPG The first day we st...

Re: Vancouver Regional Group Chasing Billy Miner Tour video

What is that big beautiful beige and black thing in the second and third photos? (not counting the video) Just curious, it looks quite impressive. The car you refer to is a 1913 Peerless and it is a very impressive car with a great history. Just tonight I (finally) uploaded a 1965 movie of this car...

Re: Did You Drive Your Pre-'16 Today?

Well, I'm a long ways from Florida, but I had my '11 Cadillac out on Boxing Day, December 26. The Vintage Car club of Canada has a tradition of getting the cars out for a drive around Stanley Park (Vancouver, British Columbia) each year. This year it was mild, 6 degrees Celcius (approx. 43 degrees F...
