    Citroen...Welcome to the Hamb and thanks for sharing these works of art that add a forward finishing touch to the many unique vintages of Hotrod/Race presented here. I see your in the Antique Business or perhaps just enjoy them. I always enjoy snooping in these places when I have some spare time. Automotive pieces are not generally the main focus of Antique Stores but some manage to include such things in their offerings...I recently acquired some Tachs at a good price and have helped a Hamber with his build in passing it on at cost as I enjoy helping out others.

    When you post your pics use full image don't be shy...By the way if you don't already know you can edit your post and choose Full Image instead of thumbnail and repost and they will be more visible.

    I earlier in this thread have posted some Google Patents and some you have posted look to have been amongst the images I posted...Truly incredible designs much like the cars themselves.

    Glad you are enjoying this Tim and thanks for your appreciation...Many times in the simplicity of Hotrods these are discarded but many embrace and compliment the builds with them and the variety was incredible over the period.


    Thanks also to all the others who continue to enjoy and support the thread as well...;)

    Did you notice the original design patent for the 33 Chev I just posted matching your cap...I really enjoy the artwork that the original parts were created from...with the Artists name and other details...

    Would be afraid to put any of these on a car and walk away......pretty sure someone would think they need it.

    Dana that's pretty darn special...I mean when you look/drive this Hotrod you are enveloped in your youth...not that you aren't still youthful but it's something not all of us experience. The cap has a charm all it's own as well.
