If I'm right I have no question, so Dinger- if you have something go for it. If not, back to Boothboy.

Colbalt got it. Voltage Regulator Adjustment tools ( I always used a screw driver). I knew that one was to easy!

Dinger, go for it.

I am blank! I am also working in Indio, Ca., 62 hours the last 5 days, 104 heat, inspecting corn under a metal roof. . My question would be: Whose brains are fried today? First guy that comes up with an answer gets the next question.

Sweet corn, white, yellow, bi-color. 25,000 boxes a day. We are off today, the cold storage is PACKED! The trucks are coming in to haul it off, Memorial Day is right around the corner. Prime Time is the major handler, they also have bell peppers, eggplant, yellow peppers. I've been eating a lot of bell peppers and corn lately. The corn is OK, I've had better, but at this time of year it is pretty darn good. I am resting today, I'm pretty beat. 45-55 lb. cartons 13-15 hours a day is young man's work.

These are some of the first aftermarket wheels, name them.

My old boss has a set on his 33 Ford Phaeton. And don't cheat by chasing the URl I didn't copy it to my computer first so you couldn't. It's the honor system.

In the back of my mind Rajo ( don't know the proper spelling) keeps creeping out. I know they made heads but wheels keep yelling at me. Other than that B.T.S.O.O.M.

I don't want to kill the thread again.

They are "General Jumbo" wheels and this is a restored Ford with these period piece (1934) wheels on it.

Anyone have a question?

Brian

It was an ingenious marketing plan. Make wheels that only special tires fit on. General Tire sold a lot of tires that no one else could sell them I imagine.

So what's your trivia question?

Brian

Bob I missed it completely so it's yours. Just a side note though, after doing a little research today it turns out that the 'General jumbo was also called a Clev Weld wheel. the Cleveland Welding Company actually manufactured the wheel but the item they made there big money on was bicycles!. they manufactured the RoadMaster Bicycle. I remember seeing advertisements for that bike. CLC was eventually bought out by AMF.

Trivia

I hope this doesn't kill the thread again. I know Brian is a gamer and it seems Boothboy is, so here goes.

Among the unostentations expensive cars made in small numbers in America, this car was unusual in using a V-8 in every Model from 1915 onward.

What was the name of the car, and where in the US was it made.

Bob

Well Cadillac of Detroit MI. started using V8 engines in 1915 and has continued using them ever since. The first vehicle was a Model 51 Cadillac. However Cadillac didn't build the car. They supplied the engine and chassis and C.P. Kimball & Co. of Chicago actually built the automobile.
If in fact this is the right answer, Cadillac did not offer a v8 in every mogel, remember the Cimarron? Cadillac wishes they didn't!
