Automotif XX...

Seen yesterday in Rochester, IN:

1930 Chrysler. Sign in the window says "$12,000 firm" if anybody's interested.

(I pointed out the NAPA store and told my wife), "I think you need to own one of those to own one of those".

A friend of a friend had one back in the 1970s. It was collectible in those days.

I think there are still a few old timers who have Dillinger flashbacks when it's parked at the bank...

My great grandmother had a coupe with a rumble seat, same year and make. I think we have a home movie of me (as a mere stripling) cranking the crank, or pretending to.

I'll have to look for some pictures now.

Good looking car. If was a T an A it would be worth a few thousand more. Not sure why, but the group that follows old cars wants them pristine.

Othen thought it would be interesting to take something like that and turn it into a hot rod, but since you can by NOS parts to complete the rod, these might be letter left alone.

Circa '64, dad towed a couple of old, well used cars home. A '25 and '29 Ford and Chevy. I recall examining the wood body construction and thinking they would make interesting toys, but couldn't imagine using them for daily transportation.

Now, I wonder what teenagers think when they encounter '65-'70's vintage cars.



BTW, I think dad paid about $500 ea for those cars. They didn't stay long, as they were just some wheeling and dealing he was involved in.

That price sounds reasonable. Not a bad price for history that drives down the road.

Skip said...

When a '57 Bel Air goes for 15, that is a good price.

Better left alone indeed, Paul. I am too old and feeble to hunt down and kill someone who would hot-rod a nice old piece like that one.
