Bill Napoli of the Motion Unlimited Museum in Rapid City, S.D., asked the OCW staff to identify the early touring in this vintage photo. Unfortunately, this one has us stumped. Someone with more knowledge of late-1910s and 1920s cars should … More
Patrick Hopkins had been around his grandfather’s spectacular 1912 Buick his entire life. The car was, as the cliché goes, just another member of the family. He had even been warned that the car would be his when his grandfather finally decided he had owned it long enough.
Still, when the day came for the car to officially become his, Hopkins had a hard time processing it all. “I just kept running myself repeatedly into the wall,” he recalls. “It was just such a shock to end up with this car. Even when he told me it was mine, I still didn’t believe it."
The term “cross-over” is a relatively new moniker that has been slapped on many new vehicles in recent years. You see them everywhere, in all shapes and sizes — modern, high-tech, operator-friendly “tweener” rigs that are part car, part station wagon and part sports utility vehicle.
Steve and Dixie McNeely, of Grand Valley, Ariz., figure they’ve got a vehicle that was a little ahead of its time as a multi-purpose machine. Sure, it’s plenty primitive and might not work that great for hauling the brood to a soccer game, but the McNeelys’ splendid 1910 International Harvest Co. (IHC) Auto Wagon high-wheeler was clearly a truck capable of performing more than one duty back in its day. More
When it comes to Buicks, Judd Houser’s unrestored 1911 Model 33 touring car is certainly among the most desirable, if for no other reason than its interesting past.
Bob Benz isn’t in a hurry to get the 1908 Black Model 112 Runabout in perfect running order because he has a bunch of other old vehicles that need his attention, including a Maxwell, a couple of Kaiser Darrins, a 1954 Kaiser Manhattan he’s had since 1962 that he’d like to get back in running condition, an Isetta with a similar story, and a 1933 Harley-Davidson that he’s restoring. His garage is also home to a 1972 Monte Carlo and a 1987 Oldsmobile GT four-door sedan. “There aren’t many of those around!” he says of the Olds.
But the 1908 Black high-wheeler is a unique machine even by Benz’s standards.
It’s only really been about three years since Larry Jarvis stuck his toe in the old car hobby waters and mustered up the courage to buy his first collector car. And even though he’s still a bit of a rookie these days, Jarvis has to laugh at just how naive and green he was when he broke the ice and took delivery on his 1928 Essex sedan.
A Packard was one of several autos to make the first coast-to-coast trek in 1903. More
A 1923 Stutz seven-passenger touring, the only known surviving example and found in exceptional original condition, is headed back to its origins – Indianapolis. Like many rarities in the A.K. Miller collection, it was hidden away for decades. More
The Ford Model T was an immensely popular and beloved car. Rugged, adaptable and straightforward, it was useful as everything from a delivery vehicle to a station wagon to a pickup, not to mention a touring, a roadster and a coupe. The Model A was a better match to contemporary roads and the demands then being made on cars, but many Model T owners were very loyal. More
