Oudste tankstation van Nederland

Oudste tankstation van Nederland

Tankstation Keulsepoort is het oudste tankstation van Nederland en dateert uit 1933. Het werd gebouwd als Servicestation voor The American Petroleum Company. De bouw was indertijd revolutionair en hypermodern te noemen. Het is een voorbeeld van het Nieuwe Bouwen uit de tijd tussen 1920 en 1940 en herinnerd aan Amerikaanse roadmovies. Het tankstation speelde voor Venlo een hoofdrol in de Rally van Monte Carlo vóór 1940, toen daar een tussenstop was.

Mystery Pallas carburettor

Mystery Pallas carburettor

Recently I purchased this nice brass carburettor.
The Pallas carbs I saw before had ring shaped floats. This has a normal float.
It seems that one can use this carb vertical or horizontal depending on the assembly.
It is marked J3 no. J1753.
Can anybody tell me more concerning the Pallas?

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have a question regarding a find that I made a few days ago...

I go metal detecting in the Oxfordshire area. A couple of days ago I found (usually I find coins - medieval, roman- and buttons and scrap metal) a folded peace of metal. I cleaned it up and left it in my flat...until my landlord (an retired antique dealer) saw that peace and asked me if he should straighten it. We took some pictures...and look what came out.

Do you have any idea what that is....obviously a car plaque but what for and which time. I guess pre war!?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Kind regards
Michael Waldher

1939 Dodge D-11 Deluxe 4dr Sedan

I picked the car up about ayear ago. When purchased it was 99% original with 75,000 miles. I have since had to do some minor repairs (water pump, clutch etc). I need to do some interior work as the headliner and front seat are in need of replacement. The Seller had wanted to chop the car into a street rod but changed his mind, so I ended up with it for a song. I plan on replacing the bumpers after getting them rechromed and doing a new paint job on it once I get the build card to find out what the original color was.

Mystery Air Cooled Cylinders, Franklin ?

Mystery Air Cooled Cylinders
Hello, A friend who is not computer literate sent me the attached images of three new old stock cylinders which he would like to have identified.  He says that the bores are 3.375" in diameter & as can be seen in the images one cylinder has the word 'Frankland' written in chalk.  Perhaps it is from an air cooled 'Franklin' car?  I am sure that one of your website visitors will be able to identify these items.
