Appeals / Car Transport from Brooklyn NY to SF Bay Area
« on: May 26, 2022, 10:13:38 PM »
Our daughter and family will be relocating from Brooklyn, NY back to the SF bay area (Petaluma, CA) within about a month.  I'm looking for a recommendation for a reputable (and reasonable} car transport company to help get their SUV back to the bay area.  An open carrier is preferred to keep the costs down.  Any leads would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much!

Here's a 1968 Shelby ad that I came across from Nagle Ford in Rochester, NY.  It appears to be on a page from a Spencer Speedway (Williamson, NY) program from 1967.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / 1958 Hertz Rental Car Wall Clock
« on: May 02, 2022, 08:27:31 PM »
I saw this on eBay and placed a late bid in hopes of adding it to my garage wall.  I won the auction right before leaving on a 9 day vacation to visit our grandkids.  This was waiting for me upon our arrival back home.  It's from 1958 and is complete with the outer glass cover.  There is a partial crack on the inner glass HERTZ plate which is only noticeable at certain angles.  It utilizes a Pam clock that keeps perfect time!  All I did was remove the outer stainless ring to clean and polish.  I bought a couple of socket adapters to enable use of the smaller night lite style bulbs.  I wound up using 2 x 10watt LED bulbs which run super cool and provide plenty of light.  I was very happy to find one of these clocks.

Vintage Shelby Related Literature and Collectibles / FoMoCo Metal Sign Find
« on: February 21, 2022, 10:29:18 PM »
I generally visit the swap meets or flea market on the weekends always looking for something that I don't really need.  I'm usually on the lookout for vintage tube radios and vintage automotive related items.  I love the element of surprise and not knowing just what I'll come across.  Our flea market is pretty small now as we lost our previous venue which was a very large parking lot.  This makes the pickins even slimmer!  I went there yesterday and was on my last run when I noticed several metal signs leaning up against the legs of one of the tables.  They were all, except for one, the $9.99 type of tin sign that's made to look vintage with the typical "rust" around the edges.  But one caught my eye.  It was a FoMoCo sign that was larger than the rest (18" x 13-1/2"), was 2-sided, heavier than most (2 lbs), and had eyelets in the upper 2 holes.  I already have a repo that's the same style and size but is lighter (1lb 10oz), one-sided, has no eyelets, and the method of painting is different.  The one I just purchased has a very nice shine to it.  It was painted red first then the white was done over that.  It does have some scratches and dings but no rust.  I was able to buy it for the price of a cheap tin sign. One can't have too many Ford signs (contrary to what my wife thinks!).  I did some internet research and I'm pretty sure that the one I purchased is an original.  Are there any vintage sign experts here that can provide some input?  Much appreciated!    Craig R.

Thought this might be of interest to some.  Sad to see just how strong mother nature can be.

I came across this while going through some of my parent's old paperwork.  It appears to be perforated top and bottom.  Looks as if they were a little behind in getting their '78 Granada serviced!

Here's a vintage photo that I picked up showing a black '66 Hertz GT350H Shelby at a rental facility.  Notice the signs in the upper right portion of the photo.  The first white one reads "Hertz Car Club of America Champion Class B" (not sure about the Class B part).  Second sign starts with "Rally Stripes" but I can't read the rest.  The third sign reads "Cobra-ized Engine, 4 Barrel Carb, Kelsey-Hayes Discs, Goodyear Bluestreaks".  The last red sign reads "Like Lemans".  These would look great hanging from a wall in my garage!  I also like the front license plate.  It's fun to dissect the details of these vintage photos.  Enjoy!

I came across this postcard on the Bay and I don't remember ever seeing one like it before.  Has anyone ever come across this one?
