Re: locomobile surrey

You might try the Stanley Museum. They have some information on Stanley/Locomobiles.

2013 New England Brass and Gas Tour

The tour was run last week, very successfully and to great acclaim. The base was Rutland, VT, at a Holiday Inn directly across the highway from a huge shopping mall where we parked trailers. We were able to get out of town and onto back roads quite quickly, but some of the return trips had a lot of ...

Re: 2013 Grizzly Tour

WOW! I don't know whether to be envious that you had such an exciting tour and could capture its essence so eloquently, or grateful as hell that I didn't have to endure it myself. Bees! Rain! Snow! Ice! Mountain driving with all of the above! WOW! Since you were last heard from checking into a mount...

Re: Brass in Berks 2013 Begins

I'm attaching three pictures taken by Tracy Lesher at the coffee stop where we gave rides to kids in a Montessori school. I believe the Overland driver is her husband, Jeff. The red Stanley at the Montessori school is Auburn Heights Preserve’s 1912 Model 87, driven by Bill Schwoebel, who told the ki...

Re: Clueless Department - Automotive Division

You might be right, Pat! We had a steam car giving rides. I'm trying to get a picture posted.

One of these days I might even get my own Stanley back on the road.

Seeking Divine Guidance - A Work In Progress!

The Brass in Bucks/Berks County tour rarely gets away without some significant rain sometime during the event, much to tourmeister Clay Green’s chagrin. On the other hand, Bob Ladd seems to come up with wonderful conditions for the Susquehanna Valley RG’s day trips. Clay, having taken note of this p...

Clueless Department - Automotive Division

On Tuesday of the Brass in Berks County tour, we visited a Montessori school, where a number of us gave rides to excited kids. On one ride, I had space in the front seat, and a cute young mother asked if she could come. Silly question – of course she could come! We pulled out of the driveway into th...

Re: 1903 Rambler Model E Colours

I can't count! There are only 5 Model Es listed. I sent the list of owners to the museum at its e-mail address, rather than publishing the list here for all to see and phish from. Hope it's useful!

Re: 1909 Washington Research Help Needed!

I e-mailed Sharon Sahl, the widow of Bob Sahl, the prior owner of a 1909 Washington. She's touring in Australia, will be home at the end of April, and says she'll be glad to look for pictures, or whatever, to help you with your thesis. She said it was OK to give you her e-mail address, but I'm reluc...

Re: "Hot Tube Rally" Videos Pre-1900 Cars

This is a fascinating set of videos of cars of an age we never see on the road here. If anyone has something really primitive that runs reasonably dependably and would like to tour in it, here's an early alert. The joint AACA/HCCA Reliability tour is going to be run in Lancaster, PA in the summer of...

Re: 1903 Rambler Model E Colours

There aren't a lot of early Ramblers. The HCCA roster shows 8 1903 model Es. Their owners might have researched the colors. If you don't have access to the roster, PM me and I'll send you who they are. Otherwise, I can only suggest the Horseless Carriage Foundation library and the AACA library, whic...

Newsletter and Website Awards

Congratulations to the award winners! I clicked on several of the clickable addresses in Carl Pate's list of winners, and was impressed by the number of well-done publications, both paper and electronic. Not only are there good websites, but several Regional Groups and Registers have put their print...

The Moore that used the GB&S engine, according to the Standard Catalog, was built from 1916 to 1920. No indication of chain drive, and later than I assume the car in Brent's pictures must be. Also, the StdCat pictures of that later Moore don't show a tie rod in front of the axle. Gil Fitzhugh the El...

Besides good food, great routes and wonderful destinations, what made the inaugural 2012 Hershey Hangover world-class was the presence of brass car enthusiasts from all over the world.

Calling All E-M-Fs!

A bunch of folks were lounging around Clay Green’s Hershey spot, and someone wondered aloud how many E-M-Fs it might be possible to put on next year’s Hershey show field. Ten seemed easy. Twenty seemed doable. Steve Heald volunteered to coordinate an E-M-F rally and to get the cars parked together. ...
