  1. Here is a tool that I got from a buddy that was a body man for 40 years. On the one side of the handle is--ANZICK mfg Van Dyke Mich
  2. Here is a tool I picked up at a flea market----written on the handle is "Beechnut gum"---on the blade is " ship old stock first
  3. Crazy weather here in the southern tier of NY. It went from 40deg and raining to 3deg and blizzard like conditions in 2 hours.
  4. Some more pics of the bridge----I see it was built in 1853 not 1845
  5. This bridge is in Newfield NY, it was built in 1845. It is the oldest covered bridge in NY that is used for regular vehicle traffic everyday.
  6. No apples on the wild trees here in the southern tier of NY-----also I have several oak--walnut--and hickory nut trees on my property and there is not one nut on any of them------strange
  7. Some nice IH tractors at this auction Steve Stright estate auction----10-29-22 dannauctioneers.com
  8. They are even here in the eastern us. I live in the southern tier of New York[Elmira-Corning area] neighbours are reporting seeing them on their game cams. And this is a very populace part of the state.
  9. The small town of Avoca located in the southern tier of NY had there 1st annual agfest to raise money for their town park. It was unusual because there was a tractor show on one end of the town and a car show on the other--with a tram running between them every 1 min. This worked out very well with the ag people enjoying country music in there area and the car show people enjoying there type of music. Some tractor pics first
  10. You are spot on where the switch is. Should be a wire from a power source to the switch----wire from the switch to back up lights.
  11. This 1931 Pontiac is a true time capsule----the person in the pic is the 2nd owner. A history of the car---the original owner purchased it new in 1931, he drove it back and forth to work every day--a 30 mile trip. In 1970 he parked it in his barn and bought a new 1970 Plymouth. The new owner purchased it in 1975 for $200, he parked in his barn. In the early 80's his wife said do something with old truck or sell it. He put it on the road in 1985. He removed the spark plugs [check the condition of the plugs-- they were in it when he bought it] poured some AFT in the cylinders and used the hand crank to turn it over--every thing seem to be loose so he cleaned up the points and the carb hooked up a small gas tank, put in a battery and with a few turns over it started. The only thing he has done to the car is replace the tires[Coker] --the spark plug wires---the brakes needed to be relined --He found a local old time auto shop that still had a roll of the original material to repair the brake shoes, the brake operating system is all rods and levers. The only things missing from the day it was sold is a metal cap that goes over the voltage cut out on the generator and a piece broken off the rad cap. Word got out in the Pontiac club and people come from all over and spend hours taken pictures. These two vehicles are the reason I go to car shows. In the last pic notice that there is a gap between the cowl and the glass, that because the wind shield glass rolls up for ventilation !!!
