Upholstering the back of the back seat in my 1929 Graham Paige model 612.
Mandi and I always enjoy attending the Old Car Festival in Dearborn Michigan at Greenfield Village. It’s a park started by Henry Ford himself to honor the old way of life in America. You can see the Wright Brothers bicycle store, Thomas Edison’s workshop, and many other famous buildings. These are not reproductions, but the actual structures brought there by Ford. Every year they have a car show devoted to pre-1934 vehicles. For the last several shows, I’ve been trying to see a Graham Paige there with no success. This year there were two! Here I am with the owners.
This is a 1928 Graham Paige Model 610. Very similar to my model 612. The couple that owns it are from the Detroit area and members of the Graham Paige Owner’s Club. I had a nice chat with them about the car and took pics for reference on mine.
One of the main differences with their model is the brakes. There’s are a band type around the outside of the drum while mine have calipers inside a drum.
Here is a GP coupe. I didn’t get to talk to the owners though. A very nicely done car.
This gives me more inspiration to finish the car and get her on the road!
Building a new tool organizer in an attempt to improve the infrastructure of the garage…
Adam Savage is right. Drawers are where tools go to die.
I’m tired of rummaging around through my rolling metal box to find things. I built this organizer similar to his basic design. At the base is a rolling cart I bought at Harbor Freight tools for only 15 US bucks…
I still need to add several options but it’s coming together nicely. Do yourself a favour and build one of these.
