no OLNOLAN had the answer with the 52 straight, I had said 57 special, you came back with it wasn't 57, did they even put a four barrel on a 57 special. and I just answered, or let you know yes they did. 2bbl was standard 250hp, and 4bbl was extra gave you 300 hp.

OLNOLON has the floor not me.

I'm confused I didn't have the right answer until after it was posted, I thought OLNOLON had it and while I'm writing a post Rich is telling me to go ahead. How did I get the floor with the wrong answer? Or are we playing a new game.

Rich I don't know which answer you are looking for but I have, three.

The 1913 Caddy pressure

The 1914 Studbaker with mechanical

and the 1925 Rickenbacker had electric, it would run the battery down in one week, so they put a button on it to check the gas.

Oh, never mind, I see he listed an earlier one than you new about, wait that was Rich?
This is where it gets into a gray area. I have known it to be 1952. And you were the winner. However, Bob had a link to where it was saying that the straight 8's and the Nailhead were available at the same time in 1953. So I gave it to him being he provided believable info that I was originally wrong.

Brian OLNOLON got it right with 52, I was just trying to tell you they still used the straight 8s in part of 53.
Rich asked what year did they put gas gauges in the dash. My first answer was 1913 Caddy. He said I was close in the year, I went back and found they had 3 kinds of gas gauges. One a 1913 Caddy with pressure gauge, , one a mechanical gauge in a 1914 Studebaker, and the first electric gauge in a 1925 Rickenbacker. he was looking for the Studebaker. So even if Rich didn't tell me I have the floor, if I get it I will turn it over to OLNOLON, you guys will start before my beauty sleep is over anyway.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways-Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, what a ride'
