Unfortunately, with my move to the south, the building couldn't come with me That's probably a good thing in the long run. Like starting in addiction therapy.

One of the best cars I ever owned was a '61 Triumph TR3. I got it just after I got my '57 MG. It was so much better. I beat on it for years and it soldiered on until my brother-in-law wrecked it. I wish I still had it.

Mike, I finally met you in person on Sunday when I was on my family roadtrip..... 'Impressive?' I think you wrote the book on that. 'Nough said. As far as this thread topic, every time I come up with an off brand, it only sticks around less than a year. My '47 stude left last month, chevies only a memory around Jailbar ranch. Yes I dabble, but I always come back. And Happy New Year to all you 'Barners

O&T if I had the room a Franklin would be on the list, my favorite display bldg @ the Gilmore museum.

There is a plaque displayed there from the Portland dealership from 1929.

Before I had the 53' Merc there was the 87' Porsche Carrera. My wife and I also did a ground up restoration on a 1970 Cougar XR-7 for her, that she drives to shows and cruses all summer. She drove one all through college and always wanted another one.

So many nice cars pictured I had to post this.
1951 Ferguson TO-30, it was the 10th one produced S/N 60010.
Maybe, someday, I can restore it.....with a Ford Flathead V8????

Thanks Yes often said but not quite in the same league as Bentley.They were an English middle class to richer mans "sporting saloon". The 100 designation refers to 100bhp/ 100mph. Engine is 3L straight six. These things looked better if they had the wire wheel option. Beautiful car but I missed my previous flathead coupe...I think I'd bought above my station in life haha.

That is a great tip, I checked out the website for the Northeast classic car museum and that may be on the short list of stops this summer when checking out the micro beer locations Hoppy New Year

Been a Ford guy since forever always 32's
2 Years ago I bought a decent 65 GTO 2dr hardtop
Real deal 4 spd. GTO, not a clone.
Slowly but surely I'm fixing all the little things that were neglected.
I remember the GTOs when I was a teenager they were always faster then my Mustang
It was an easy decision to buy it when I found this one.
