RE: weco: "I wish I had all my old cars ..."
Nice list. A few I have to comment on. (I'd forgotten about motorcycles, since I usually only ended up with them as the result of a vehicle trade and never was a very good rider. I always figured if God had wanted man to ride on two wheels he wouldn't have given him four.)
RE: "1947 Royal Enfield 350cc single Motorcycle"
I had a late 50's Royal Enfield Twin. The engine/tranny castings were so beautiful I was tempted to display them alone.
RE: "1953 45 Cu In Harley"..."it was in a pile at a friend's ranch, what's left of it.."
I had a basket case 45 once and would love to find another. I think that unless you're a 6'7" 300 pounder, the big Harleys are grossly disportionate. A stripped Sportster is okay, but the 45 were scaled to the average human. There used to be something called a "Magnum", which was Sportster barrels on the 45 case, which I've always wanted to try. Of course, you can imagine how long the tranny lasted with that!
RE: "1953 Studebaker Commander (Metallic lavender)"
A beautiful car.
