HELP!!! LOST!! AT LURAY!!!

Post by Jonah D'Avella » Sun May 16, 2021 8:19 pm

So, I had a fantastic time at luray and got a bunch of stuff! Among my finds were 4 toolboxes, radiator caps. Spedomoters, and much more! When I unloaded my stuff today, I found I had left behind a box of parts and stuff I bought. There were about 40 model t magazines, a battery charger, 4 champion spark plugs, and a Stewart or other brand speedometer in the box. I was wondering if anyone had found them. Thank you for your help!

Excitement of energy sometimes has a reaction! LOL!

I have done this twice or more.

The good news is that people in this hobby are probably the most honest people I have dealt with.
Give it some time, as people are still unpacking their vehicles. You will be getting a call or email that your treasures were found.

I left I big bag of what I bought in the restroom at the Hershey ice rink year before last.
I knocked on the door and the fellow opens it and hands me my bag. It was a funny situation but he knew why I was knocking 😳

Jonah , would these be yours?

There was a pile left and I could not discard this. The magazines I gave to someone else and the Speedo was not much good as it was the pot metal gears and was all swelled up. I think that went on the scrap wagon. I have a big box of Model T Times magazines that you can have. I don’t recall seeing any spark plugs. We just thought someone did not want these things and left them behind. I will hold onto this if it is yours.
Sorry for the things I did not save.

We had left this for Jonah at our space, C 5. He was aware it was there and was supposed to come back and get it after we left. Sorry it got left behind. Seems like the box it was sitting next to had magazines in it but I’m not for sure.
