Both factory. The first is a convertible sedan and the second is a cabriolet. They also made a 4 door phaeton that did not have side windows, a roadster like mine and a club cabriolet that had side windows and a back seat. Actually offered 5 open car models.

No. They have curtains. I have made lexan windows for mine but the factory were canvas and convertible window plastic. Same with the phaeton.

That is why the roadster is so rare. By 1936 people would not accept a car that did not have roll up windows. They only made 3862 of them.

Obviously your computer is very selective. Must have good taste in cars.

I was invited to a friends for a Barbeque picnic today. He had I think 79 people and about 40 cars, most of which were hot rods.

It was a perfect day. 83 degrees with no wind, clear sky and lots of big shade trees. I don't know how it could be any better.

John













A big thank you to our friend and host along with his wife for their hard work and hospitality.

Looks great, John. We had 54, overcast with occasional drizzle and wind...

Getting up at 2:30 am to get in line for a swap meet in the morning. Overnight temp of 36 forecast. Gonna be "chilly" setting up at 6:00 am in the dark...

Some of the components in my computer are most likely from China, but it is a "kit" of components I selected out of the Tiger Direct catalog and assembled. Not bad for a non-techie gear head, eh ??

I love a good swap meet but think maybe an afternoon on Ebay might beat a 36 degree morning in the fog. Hope you have a good day

I am really blessed to have some good friends. The picnic was by invitation. Last year I had a commitment to be in Nashville at my daughters and could not attend. This year Stacey asked me before he scheduled it if this weekend would work for me. That really meant a lot to me.

Barb and I don't skip church very often but we are going to get the bike out and ride to the mountains today. We have not ridden much this year. There is nothing like the mountains to make you appreciate God's beauty.

I have said before, only rode a little, I had a bike for a year or so. But when I did I went up to Lake Tahoe and Reno (to the Reno Air races) and when I was going thru the red woods up there it hit me, it hit me, THIS is why people ride motorcycles! It's a lot like riding a bike or taking a walk, you smell the trees, you are a PART of them not just passing them in a box.

Very well said and oh so true. You become part of the environment. I don't know why the bike is sooo relaxing but it is.

We just got back. Probably rode 175 miles or so. Went through Elijay, Ga and looked for David Perry. He must have seen us coming and hid behind a tree.

The leaves are beginning to turn but far from their peak. Another good day.

John
