Default Photos of "the other love"

I'm always curious what other cars folks here have besides their beloved Model A. After many years and cars and trucks, I sold them all off and told the wife, I'm done. She just said "Sure......I'll believe it when I see it". 6 months later I bought this little gem. Then I figured.....hell, I have room left over in the garage for a 1920's car which I've never owned, Low and behold.......a buddy for the Metro!

Besides the Model A CCPU, we have a '25 T touring under refurbishment and a '61 Morris Minor that's redone.

It's too difficult to post pictuers here, otherwise I would but my other car is a 1929 Delage, model DM. Mine was about the second car made for the 1929 model year which starts on 1st October the year before so mine was made early in the first week of October, 1928.
Two weeks ago was its first outing after a 20 year restoration project. It took out two awards! I'm very pleased with it.

Besides the AA which has been in the family for 50 years (it was my dad's)
there is the '30 Tudor which my uncle and I restored when I was in high school in the 70's, and I eventually bought from him, there is the '79 Plymouth Road Runner, which I bought new and still have, and a '70 Chrysler Newport Convertible, which was also my dad's, but unfortunately have no picture to post. It is a 43k mile car which is still like new also.

Besides my wife's '30 standard coupe (deluxed and rumbled by a PO), I have a 1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK, amber red metallic, with less than 6000 miles on it. Bought from the dealer in West Virginia that originally sold it and did all the maintenance on it. Now that's my idea of "restoration"!

Unfortunately all the pics are on my old phone, which I need to resuscitate.

if you email a picture of your Delage to mercman he will enlarge it for you and post it on this thread.

Too many to list; trying to downsize but failing miserably: current stable includes the avatar; 4 WWII and Korean War vintage Willys Jeeps; another A; handful of Mustang Convertibles, plus the Truckstang (google it if you want pictures); couple Toyota 4x4 rigs for use around the ranch. Send a note to mellis@co.leake.ms.us if you desire pictures.

After I parked my Ford in Grandma's garage for its long sleep, I bought my brand new Rambler convertible. After 100k miles, I did the stupidest thing of my life--took $100 for it on a tradein for a '71 Dodge Dart. Not a day has gone by that I don't kick and berate myself.

Mine is a '28 Nash Standard Six sedan, purchased for $50 when I was just 16. It sits awaiting my retirement (which starts before Christmas!) in a thousand pieces. Yes, I did the unforgivable thing many moons ago.
That's my late dad (who stumped up the $50!) and me on the day we brought it home in Dec 1970.
