The question


This may have been ask before, oh well.

What was the first car to have a replaceable cartridge oil filter? Car and year.

I think it was a 1929 Ford V8.

They were known as Ford Brewster's. Brewster & Co. bought 135 Ford chassis's during the depression to more or less to fill a need for the continuous Rich car owner to set aside their more "shove it in the face I'm still rich and your not" chauffeur driven luxury cars and have something more plebeian to ride in. That and the fact that RR's weren't selling as hot as they were before the depression. Only one was fitted with a standard 1934 Ford grill and that was the very first one built for Edsel Ford. Fourteen others had 1935 grills and the rest had the heart shaped Brewster grill.

Go for it.

It's a Brewster. I cannot pinpoint the exact year because they looked quite a bit alike for several years. Mid 30's though. Possibly a 1934, 35 or 36. Convertible coupe.

As Maxwell Smart would have said "Ah, yes - the ol' "Renault Dauphine" trick!"

Advertised as being capable of 70 mph (downhill, with a strong tailwind, I suspect)

In Time Magazine's list of the 50 worst cars of all time, it came in at number 9 and they said THIS about it:

"The most ineffective bit of French engineering since the Maginot Line, the Renault Dauphine was originally to be named the Corvette, tres ironie. It was, in fact, a rickety, paper-thin scandal of a car that, if you stood beside it, you could actually hear rusting. Its most salient feature was its slowness, a rate of acceleration you could measure with a calendar. It took the drivers at Road and Track 32 seconds to reach 60 mph, which would put the Dauphine at a severe disadvantage in any drag race involving farm equipment. The fact that the ultra-cheap, super-sketchy Dauphine sold over 2 million copies around the world is an index of how desperately people wanted cars. Any cars."

How about these? !929 Buick

They started manufacturing their own parts in 1930. Prier to that parts were imported from the USA. They have their own foundry's and engine plants. Brazil is the second largest market and manufacturing entity that GM has. Just judging from the rear fenders on the truck we have been looking at I'd say the have their own stamping dies. If you look at their product line there are differences from U.S. autos.

Back in the mid 60s the small English ,French and itilian cars were popular here with the Teens ,,Cheap to buy great on gas seems every kid had one for a while ,the only problem was there were No dealerships and local parts stoe didn't carry parts,,we only had 1 parts store and it is 65 miles to Atlanta lus the drive around the loop ,so they kinda faded out. I had a Renault Simca metropolitan and a Vahhuall Victor LOL ,,Hnnn Back in the day
