    Hi Bonesy - Thanks for your kind comment. You are obviously a man of uncommonly keen intellect and taste. Your roadster is a killer - don't change it!

    'Shorty' Fulton @ his Akron Airport circa. 1933. I believe he used this pic
    in his Christmas cards also.

    What is that body? It's a 2 door. Didn't know they made them.

    Looks like a Deluxe Phaeton. They made them as a two-door in '30-31.

    I'm more intrigued by those wheels and tires. I didn't realize they made wheels that small and tires that big in the early '30s.

    I've seen 14" wheels supposedly from the '33-'34 era called "General Jumbo" wheels. I've also seen period beach buggies fitted with large high-flotation tires like that in the '40s and '50s. I believe those were captioned as aircraft tires.

    "Shorty" worked for Firestone and Goodyear before starting the airport in the 20's and of course Goodyear built their Zeppelin airdock there too,so undoubtedly he had access to the latest and greatest...

  23. A little OT, but still a way-cool tub: Anyone have any photos of Al Schieb's '34 Phaeton with the killer flames and big slicks on the back? If I remember correctly, Al and his brother (sons of Earl Schieb) built the thing in the '50s and then rebuilt in the early '70s.

    I think this one is pretty much perfect. Now somebody just needs to build it. Its seems that the 30-31's are he rarest though.
