Author: andy westbeach Tuesday, 30 April 2013I'am a small time collector in India I wish there was a place for us to sell cars since we are not permitted to take them out of the country india has so much cars and bikes not only would we be able to sell but the rest of the wourld would have a chance to see what we have would be nice to have a place like FOR SALE IN INDIA ONLY
Thanks for the best vintage car and bike site on the net!
Editor: currently there are no cars offered in India at this website. However you can do so. And I preomise you that as soon you and friends bring a minimum of 10 pre-war and/or 10 post-war cars foprm India to the website, that we will create a banner "For Sale in India Only" bringing you there.
Author: Siegfried Otto Hepp Monday, 29 April 2013It happened again a classic car burned down, because one Owner put an electric pump in the old AUTOVAC tank.
If you want to do similar, you should use a push switch ( which only gives contact when you push the bottom), so you can´t forget to stop the pump.
I alone know from 3 Veteran Cars who burned in a similar way !!!
I used the AUTOVAC on two Cars for more than 70,000 Kilometers without problems and without an electric pump. It works well and you save electric power.

Editor: one more argument to keep cars original. Engineers were not stupid back then...
Author: Joris Bergsma Monday, 15 April 2013The above car was discovered in 1950, on a tomato farm in Adelaide South Australia, in pieces. It appeared in "Stop press" in The flying Lady No 56-5 October 1956 and later was in a fully illustrated article in No 56-6. It was exported back to the UK in 1958. It suffered further damage, bent chassis, during the voyage because they loaded tonnes of bagged rice on top of it. This is the only surviving vehicle of four produced.
The then owner Stanley Sealy fully restored the car. Reg Eames, now 83, was one of the three or four people employed by S.Sealy who worked on its restoration. Reg now resides in Lusaka, Zambia. We are wondering if there is anyone who might know where this vintage car is now.
Author: James Palmer Wednesday, 03 April 2013Sir,
I am pleased to report that partly owing to the efforts of Prewar Car members, the man (who called himself 'Fredrick' but who was in fact one Robin Butler) who defrauded me of £650 last year was found by police hiding beneath his bed on the 2nd of February. He admitted not only the fraud against me but also 18 other offences of fraud and asked for 56 further offences to be taken into consideration at sentencing.
He was expected to appear for sentencing on the 14th March, and, as he was on parole from a 21 month prison sentence when he committed many of these offences, a lengthy sentence is anticipated.
Thank you to all those who assisted in the sleuthing,
Dr James Palmer
Author: bob cordon champ Tuesday, 12 March 2013Noticeable lately is the proliferation of cycles and motorcycles where we expect to see cars. I am also a collector of bicycles and a writer on motorcycles, but prefer a car site to be about cars.
From another viewpoint, may we soon expect a 'Pre-war Two-Wheeler' site?

The borderline definition between cars and motorcycles is a thin grey line. Especially when you take a retrospective look. How do you define the exact differences between a monocycle, bicyclce, tricycle, quadricycle, cyclecar and car? In other words how are you going to judge who is in and who is out? More interesting it is to see that obviously the afficonados of old cars also have a strong appetite for other vintage vehicles. Over the past twelve years - not only recently - we have seen listed for sale: trucks, vans, cars, caravans, horsedrawn carriages, motorcycles, bicyclces, boats, aeroplanes and sleds! And yes at rare occasions even houses. These were exceptions as we don't see houses as vehicles, yet it must be said that of the two houses involved, one was strongly connected to Rolls Royce history, the other one to the history of Amilcar. And for what it's worth, any barnfound Zeppelin would be equally welcome.
to Bob: we would highly value your contributioons as a motorcycle correspondent, would you like to do something like a blog within these pages?
