Re: Trailer hitch

I don't need much of an excuse to re-examine these photos of the overloaded farm vehicles from the dustbowl migration (although I think the Hudson ones are recreated for the Grapes of Wrath movie). ...

Re: Trailer hitch

I think the Keely trailer has been discussed here before. Great pair!!

That coupe is set up for heavy duty towing, isn't it?

Re: Shock absorber parts

Looking at the patent for the Buciak shocks, I was interested to note that the only country external to USA where these were patented was Australia. I wonder why?

Re: Model A motor tear down Covid lockdown

Brendan, if you're up for a drive, Norm McCullagh does all the babbit work around this part of the world (Warrnambool). They're getting harder to find.
