A Mechanics Dream

What would you think, or how would feel if you saw this in your oil pan.
Click the picture to make it bigger so you can see more clearly.

Here is shot of the bearing cap. Do YOU see a bearing or babbet?

How do you think your mechanic feels about your problem?

better than you I bet.

Does he look like he is going to be fair with you?
So much for tomfoolery(does any one remember that word). That is Martha's "1925" Hupmobile that Jack has been working on and it appears that the babbet is completely gone, but it does not appear that there was any damage dome to the crank. She should be back on the road soon.
Next topic. At our last breakfast we talked about going to Hepner Or, for the Irish Days Celebration. I didn't go the last time, but was told that the people that did go had a great time.
I'm going to try to go this time and drive my new old car. Sure hope it makes it.
Please try to come too, the more the merrier, Bring an old car, new car, or ride with someone.

Police brutality

It is a crying shame when you are not even safe,from police harrasment, in your own drive way.

Actually this a picture of Jack Yale and his 32 Chrysler, being harrased by freind and club member Dave Stands on his restored 1935 (I think) Harley Davidson.

I'm Back

Sorry I haven't been posting at all since the 14th, but now I am back.
Now as for that new car that I promised to show you, here it is

It is a 1941 Super Deluxe Ford 2 door sedan. The paint is in very bad shape, but the body is very straight and the interior is a brand new LeBaron Bonny interior. I didn't really buy it, I traded my Mercedes (1973 450sl roadster) for it. It came from the Boston area. By the way if you don't know who is writing this, It's me Denny Jackson.

If I had driven it back, I could have stopped at this gas station in Illinois.

I don't think I would have gotten the kind of service now that I would have back in the 1800's when Jack Yale owned it. Yes I meant 1800's but I think it was more like the early 1900's when Jack was running it. Ha-Ha-Ha
