Boothboy, you got it as I was looking for exactly what car too. But if you want to give it to Dan, that's cool. As long as he gets off his butt and asks the question.

Cadillac had 2 V-16 models of cars on the drawing board, custom coaches. One was a 1934, the other a 1937 model. They were built about 50 years later. What model numbers were they and what did they fetch at an auction this year? Whom (2 people) had these cars built?

They were 452/90's
The 1934 fetched $1,001,000
The 1937 fetched $962,500
The 1934 was built for Fran Roxas
The 1937 was built for Bob Milhous

Interestingly enough there was a second 1934 V-16 452/90 built after Roxas car was built with the main differences being shortened front door to accommodate a small door for stowing a set of golf clubs. This car is owned by Steve Plunkett

Booth, you are good! By any chance do you get Hemmings Collector Car magazine? I thought this was going to be tough! Your turn.

Nope , I haven't read a Hemmings for awhile. My brains full of junk. I remember bits and pieces and can figure things out.
one of the neat things about those two Caddies is that they were both fabricated by the same guy! Scott Knight, a CA. boy!

Here is a easy one. I found this at a swap meet years ago. I got it for 50 cents because they didn't know what it was and I wouldn't tell them unless I got it for half a buck. I got it so I could shove it in peoples faces and say, "Yeah, I betcha you don't know what this is!"

It's a center post in ground lift with an odd hammer sitting on it.

I did a shout out to my brother and he suggests maybe a truckers tool for the ratching belts on the bed side?

It's not for the belt rachet on a big truck trailer?

Bung wrench..327/350 got it right. The end with 4 protruberances is for removing the 2" bung in a 30 or 55 gallon drum, the other hexagon end is a socket for taking out the 3/4" plug. If it's a good one, it's bronze, so it won't have any chance of making sparks when you start bumping it around on a flammable liquids filled drum.

Here's something cool. Not too many people have ever seen one, but I guarantee you have one of it's ancestors in your toolbox.

Later, mikey
