Re: Why would anybody buy a car and not ask for the key?

Looks like he wasn't planning to make use of the original engine or drivetrain:

Re: Assembly line photo

Thank you for posting!
Like Licensed to kill, I also browsed through all of the photos in the collection (https://www.facebook.com/imbuedwithhues/photos/) - very nice work on display.

Re: Interesting Newspaper Advertisement - March 18, 1931

Thanks for posting - it's interesting to see the relative price differences between the different models.
I also find it amusing that their phone number is listed, "37".
I guess not too many people...

Re: Question ????

Thank you - I hadn't heard of these before; I particularly like the "no expiration date" aspect of them

Re: Checklist for startup after 10-month unplanned hiatus

When my car was sitting for an extended period (without running the carburetor dry beforehand), it was not a pretty sight afterwards.

Re: stay signed in on the barn

I've had that happen before on both this and other websites.
Most of the time, it is due to a corrupted "cookie" - deleting it almost always fixes things.

Re: Types of 6 volt sealed beam headlights

Got them today - and WOW, what a difference!
Much brighter, and about 1/4 the current draw.

Re: Types of 6 volt sealed beam headlights

Thank you - just took a look at your thread - it's nice to have other choices, and it looks like the bulbs you chose have MUCH lower current draw than what Octane Lighting sells. I think I'm sold!

Re: Need to replace Sediment Bulb assembly - paint it?
