Twice over the past 3 years I've posted a video link to see Alan Travis' 1913 Bugatti. The first time was an 8 minute drive through the wooded Flagstaff AZ region (all action and engine sounds....no talking). The last time was nearly two years ago when Jay Leno and Alan drove the Bugatti around Sou...

As a maker of leather license plates for horseless carriage owners to use and display on their automobiles, I was excited to see what definitely appears to be a well preserved "original", of the era meaning over 100 years old, leather lic...

Re: Drain antifreeze and replace with distilled water for summer?

.......and NEVER use just distilled water. Distilled water is very corrosive, the natural chemicals are stripped away when the water is distilled and it becomes very corrosive, trying to pull in nearly any metal it can, hence it's very corrosive.

Re: Bakersfield swap meet

I don't have time to double check this (heading out to Chickasha in a few hours), but in my mind, the parking lot Bell Terrace entrance is on the NORTH side of the fairgrounds, not the south side, Ming Ave is on the south side. Can anyone confirm this?
Thanks.
