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.

1938 DESOTO CONVERTIBLE, LAST YEAR OF THE RUMBLE SEAT
DESOTO SALES WERE WAY DOWN FOR THE MODEL YEAR OF 1938 WITH A DROP OF 53% AND ONLY 37,138 TOTAL PRODUCED OF ALL MODELS. I CANNOT FIND ANY PRODUCTION FIGURE FOR THIS CONVERTIBLE COUPE BUT ASSUME THAT THIS MODEL WAS NOT PRODUCED IN SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS. WHAT IS NEW FOR '38 WAS NEW ALUMINUM HEADS THAT INCREASED HP FROM 93 TO 100. THE ENGINE IS A L-HEAD 6 CYLINDER WITH A 3.38 X 4.25 BORE AND STROKE. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL CAR WITH A GREAT ART-DECO DASH WITH A WOOD GRAIN FINISH. FOG LIGHTS AND GRILLE DESIGN GRACE THE FRONT. ALL IN ALL A VERY PROFESSIONAL RESTORATION WAS PERFORMED ON THIS RARE DESOTO. Another rare car from 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.
Derby Bentley Barnfind 1934 Olympia Car show car
This is my Derby Bentley which was the car used for the Olympia Car show in 1934, she has a Park Ward body, I collected her on the 7th of July 2009, she had been stored in the barn for 40 years, she was seized due to standing. today is the 8th of july 2009, I let her stand overnight with the bores full of WD40, then we removed the inspection cover off the gearbox and gently levered the crank backwards after about 20 minutes we could get her to turn over on the handle. I fitted a new set of plugs, cleaned the original points and some fresh petrol in the float chambers, and away she went.

Craig's 1936 Ford Fordor Sedan Project Car - Update No. 1
We've been making progress. Slowly but surely my '36 Ford is coming together. Here's another quick update on how things are going. Right now we're working on patching-up the rear wheel wells where the fenders meet the body. They've rusted through on both sides of the car. We're also remanufacturing the rocker panels which have almost completely disintegrated. Please enjoy this video update and check back often for more.
