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.

Thanks for the confirmation.  Much appreciated!  It's now hanging from the garage ceiling.

1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: Rim Id

They look like factory Mopar rims from probably late 60's or early 70's.  Not 100% sure.

In the San Francisco area it was the Great Highway (adjacent to the beach) and Brotherhood Way on Friday nights.  When the cops would close off the Great Highway the racers would head to Brotherhood.  If they got hassled at Brotherhood they would head to A&W for a burger which was located by Westlake Shopping Center in Daly City.  Everyone stayed there until things cooled off.  I valued my driver's license too much to actually race but I was a willing passenger!  Those were the days!

Thanks to all who provided their input.  This info along with some further research leads me to believe the sign is an original.  Time to go out and do some further cleaning/polishing!
Thanks again!

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.

I actually have the negatives for these photos in my collection.  I purchased them off eBay back in 2017.  According to info provided by the seller the photographer was Steve Rollins and they were taken sometime in November 1965.  Unfortunately I don't see a date on the negatives to confirm.

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