Graham Paige Car

I’m the proud owner of a restoration-in-progress 1929 Graham-Paige model 612.

“Ginger” as my wife and I call her, was purchased April 28th, 2011 and she is slowly undergoing the transformation from rusting hulk to gleaming restoration.

For more details and photos of the car, visit my other site: grahampaigecars.com

Inspecting the Graham Paige Radiator

I cut some access panels into the radiator on the old 1929 Graham Paige to inspect it inside.

What a Find! 1929 Graham Paige Car

On April 11th, 2011 I drove down to Pennsylvania to see Ginger, the 1929 Graham Paige 612, soon to become my own!
