Oh yeah, he & his father also scored this one as well
hey! how'd I miss a redhead on a motorcycle?
picture her perched, up ON THE HANDLE BARS, hair blowing over his shoulder, with a big smile on her face, as she tried to keep her balance.
wonder if she's single? I'm lookin' you know.
The Champion spark plugs, new in the boxes of racing plugs from Cotton Owens race shop. $25 for a box of 10.
I was a first time Hershey goer. It's kinda like Bonneville, descriptions and explanations and pictures don't convey the experience. You have to go see it yourself.
YOU AND ME BOTH
Lotsa good shit there. Larry needs one of those 340hp intakes at the back!
that guy always has cool stuff. last year he had a two four, wcfb set up for a caddy.
I wouldn't mind the '65 L-79 intake with the septum milled out, and I would grab about 3 sets of valve covers I can see there, looks like a WCFB at the back there as well. Too bad Hershey is so damned far away for me, I bet I'd go nuts if I went there. Probably have to rent a shipping container!
Oops, carbs a 4gc. Still lots there to lust after.
YOU KNOW I AM A VALVE COVER FREAK
IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT LOOK AT THE THREAD IN MY SIGNATURE
too far? worth the effort. this year i sold parts to guys from; Argentina, New Zealand, Spain, England, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and even a couple guys from Camada. i sold a trunk latch to a guy from B.C.
WHAT DOES A SPACE COST TO SET UP THERE?
I know some guys from here go to hershey. I could probably find my #12 thumb screw style Wittek clamps there, then I'd just have to pay for them! At least they would fit in my carry-on.
i wonder how much stuff you could take back on a train?
You know I have thought of taking the train across Canada DOZENS of times, but I never thought of taking it to Hershey! THAT is a HELL of a good idea!!
I went on Thursday....beautiful weather. Here are some of my glimpses. As usual, I walked 6 hours straight & could hardly get out of bed the next day.
I did buy some gauges & gauge panels...only stuff I could fit in my backpack. It was very difficult to discipline myself.... last year I knuckled under & bought a set of '32 Chrysler headlights that I lugged around & barely made it back to the car.
I got this speedo, which is a MYSTERY to me. It appears to be early 60's graphics, but the bezel is attached the way S/W did it back in the 30's/40's. Also, the case is odd, with a hammer finish paint job and a strange hook up for the cable. Is this for a motorcycle or ? If you twirl the stem counterclockwise, the needle responds way faster than a regular speedo or tach.
Greatly appreciate all the pictures. Could only make Friday. Spent early day in the car corral & only got to see a fraction of the swap areas before the storm rolled in. Here are a few select images. Thought it was interesting they partially disassembled the Faultless Runabout barn find before covering it.
Thanks for all of the pics
this was my hershey and carlisle swap meet scores, found alot of good stuff at both.
highlight at Carlisle was the stewart warner strait five panel with a full set of twin blue gauges including the 160mph speed! hot damn!
ty for the pics. was the blue 34 dodge for sale n how much?
let's get back to the redhead.
that's what I'm talkin' about. thanks
she actually looked a lot like the girl on the left, except giggling.
when did Olive Oil dye her hair red?
Love them Redheads!
Man, Titus, What a score on those Twin Blues....Tim has been looking for ages for a Speedometer...
