Re: Can some identify the manufacturer of this wagon?

You may be able to build a horse-drawn carriage from that. IF (big IF) you can find a name or a manufacturer's plate of some kind, you may even be able to replicate it as a specific carriage. There were many hundreds of builders of horse-drawn carriages back in their day. However, as for horseless c...

Thank you GFtE, Phil J, and Brad B for the wonderful Tour reports! Gil, Congratulations on the successful first tour for the Buick! One of my HCCA mentors had a 1912 Buick touring (oh, so many) years ago. I well remember the rides he gave me when I was still in high school! He passed away about a do...

For future reference. The CDO link I use is now going to an "Under Construction" page indicating that it is being worked on and will return. (Soon, I hope)
Thanks all!

I am fairly certain that Gary Hoonsbeen is one of the principles of the CDO site. I don't personally know him, but could try the roster for contact info.

CDO website?

I am worried what is happening to the CDO website? I have had it bookmarked for some time and occasionally check it. I was looking up some information a few days ago and it seemed to be working fine. A couple days ago I went to look at something again and got a bare bones home page, and most of the ...

Re: Vancouver Regional Group Chasing Billy Miner Tour video

Thank you to all that shared pictures and tour reports for this! It looks like it was a wonderful tour and a great selection of cars. I could identify most of the cars by make, and get within a year or two for most of them also. Except for one. What is that big beautiful beige and black thing in the...

Re: Hupmobile Model 20, Real Tour Car or Just a Parade Car

I have never owned a Hupmobile, which somewhat limits my opinion. However, remember that in 1911, a Hupmobile 20 touring went on an around-the-world tour that lasted about a year. They may not be a fast car, even by 1910 standards. But based on several I have known about, they do seem to make decent...

Next year, I expect you to cover all days completely. No "fail to proceed" and missing part of the tour.
Just as long as you go and enjoy!

Re: Auto Polo

Autopolo was an interesting sport. And yes, they were crazy. It has been discussed at length on the MTFCA forum. First, it was a real sport. Played from the early '20s until about 1950. Copies of several advertisements and newspaper articles have been found and shared at various times. These have he...

Re: Oh, How We Crept and Crawled!

Thank you GFtE for the report! Someday? Maybe? I will have something driveable that may go on such an event. Safety is an issue. I much prefer to keep antiques as close to "as was" as is reasonable. Some early cars do have serious brake considerations however (first year CDOs for instance). I am ver...
