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,

Jeff Deringer

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...

Re: TV show casting restorations and custom jobs!

Amy, Apologies to you for some of the curmudgeons on this board. I'm sure there will be more than just Joseph. Certainly they are entitled to their opinion, but they don't speak for everyone. I like Danny and the show. I've seen him look at and drive authentic antique cars on Pawn Stars, and he seem...

Re: 1913 Overland Rear End Question

Ian, I regrettably haven't finished the project. I have towed it to try to start it for some distance however! No leaks as of yet. The seals I used are 21058 Chicago Rawhide. They fit nicely into the same spot the felt seal occupies. I will report back when I get the dang thing going. Thanks, Jeff

Re: Need help ID'ing this body

I don't know if they made bodies from wood in the earlier days, but from the shape of it, the top brackets, the details, it looks like an Overland body to me. My 14 is metal body over wood frame however. The shape of the back and how it curves in looks exactly like my 14.

1913 Overland Rear End Question

There is a grooved area toward the inside ends of the axle that gets clamped down by a grooved "collar" that is held in place by 2 screws. I have always just centered the grooves evenly and it has worked fine. The rear end assembly should be held in place by these collars, and the two "guides" on th...
