The HCM Special V12 We go for a ride in a Teague designed Marmon
In 1932 Howard C. Marmon tried to save is automobile company with this car. It wasn't enough. This car was part of the Schoenthaler collection when we took this ride.
This car was designed by Walter Dorwin Teague. When the Schoenthalers brought this car to Pebble Beach they invited Mr. Teague. It was the first time he had seen the car in 70 years.
Unrestored Diamond T pickup truck
For years I'd make a trip to North Portland to run a once a week errand. On
the way back, I'd always drive by this house to see this truck parked out
front. It's been here for years ! Ten at least. Today I made a point to
drive down this street and video this awesome old Diamond T pickup just to
record a glimpse of the coolest truck in the neighborhood. I'm speaking
softly, as I've never met the owner and would hate to meet on bad terms.

Marmon Automobile Company Documentary Demo
This is a demo or test for an upcoming film about the Marmon Automobile
Company and its founders. This presentation is being used to market the
project in order for us to obtain producers for this project.
Marmon Motor Car Company was an automobile manufacturer founded by Howard
Marmon and owned by Nordyke Marmon & Company of Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
It was established in 1902 and was merged and renamed in 1933. They
produced cars under the Marmon brand. It was succeeded by Marmon-Herrington
and later the Marmon Motor Company of Denton, Texas. The name currently
survives through the Marmon Group of Chicago, Illinois.
The Model 32 of 1909 spawned the Wasp, winner of the first Indianapolis 500
motor race. This car featured the world's first rear-view mirror.
1947 Timbs Special
an engineer/mechanic named Norman Timbs made this interesting car based
very loosly on the Auto Union record streamliner cars of the late 1930s.
It has a buick straight 8 (most likely because that was the highest powered
engine any normal person could get) which is in the middle, in front of the
rear wheels, ford and packard parts, gas tank behind the engine and a spare
