Re: Previously Owned Cars From Collectors

Quite the opposite happened when i bought my 23 T from Kent Sumner, not only was he very clear on all the faults of the car, it had a lot of nice period goodies on it that i had not noticed myself from the pictures, plus it came with a complete toolset, new battery and two extra good rims. You can o...

Re: This B racer for sale raised some questions with me..

You are absolutely right there Chris, although the T is considered a light car with small capacity engine in the US, it was quite "Big" compared to most European light cars, that Bugatti 37 has a capacity of 1496cc compared to the 2878cc of a standard T. Reason for that is the way cars were taxed in...

What puzzles me in the picture of the road to Silver Plume is there are 50 wires going up the road but only 8 coming back, who or what is using up all that jizz ?
Maybe the members of the Venerable Institution can shine their light on this discrepancy...

Re: SHOW US YOUR LATHE

Bill the little South Bend is a great asset to our workshop, it could do with a scraping of the bed and the gears are a bit noisy at higher revs but we use it for the quick fixes and small jobs, we're sure happy to have it !

Very clarifying, thanks for that, the Depasse name is well known to me through my searches into the WW1 ambulance history, and the American Field Ambulance (later Am. Field Service) history in particular.

Our 10" South Bend from 1943, probably came out of a WW2 mobile workshop truck, hence the lightweight under cabinet, it was in a sorry state when we got it but luckily all parts are still available so we refurbished it and it works just dandy for us !
