  1. No shit, mine usually pop off with something un-original like, "Fuck off", or something like that, I never really paid attention to what they say. Hell, I'd try to win that one back.
     
  2. a couple pages from a 1938 book from G.M.

    My guess is that is some sort of DoD communication device. What is on the reel, paper tape with holes in it? Gary

    The red pressure tank looks like an oil pressure leakdown test setup for rod & main bearing clearance. The tag might show the maker - McQuay-Norris, Federal Mogul, & Perfect Circle used to sell them.
     
  12. just one more photo,newspaper clipping, my girlfriends grandfather which was original owner of the house. The article says he made the plow out of a 1929 truck and used it to plow his neighbors driveways.

    I wonder if that mechanix illustrated was published before or after Barris dreamed up the batmobile?

    How about a homemade garden tractor to grade around the farm house after the new one was built. Rear end out of 50's car, angle iron frame, applebox seat, 30's steering box, hand operated throttle, steering wheel is a visegrip. Thats my sis next to dad... not me.:D
     
  23. On the wheel, I had a '37 Willys with the original wheels and they were plain, so if it's Willys I guess it would have to be '36 -

    gas powered bench grinder

    Are you sure that is a gas powered grinder?? Looks to me like an early work centre,the motor is electric and has a grinding wheel on it along with a drill chuck and possibly a cupped wire wheel on the other end,it then drives via the belt a small compressor,a nice littls work station and good use of just one electric motor.

    m/p
     
  28. You may be right,I was thinking the can on top was for fuel but couldn't figure out how you started it. All the features are correct that you listed, I thought the drill chuck was kinda neat on the side. The pully on the motor is an actual crank pully off something.

    I did find about 30 slides of vintage nudes, the slides are just like the road race ones.

  29. Now we're talking!!!!! Now keep digging in the treasure chest of goodies and find the damn slide projector!! >>>>.
     
  30. a couple of the slides I had made into pictures
    that road course, maybe Watkins Glen, it said Nelsons Ledger on the slides though
