          Always wondered what Tom looked like.....more handsome than I thought. Now we need a photo of the "Assistant Guru of Stuff".

          That radiator mascot looks very familiar. Is it a period aftermarket for a Model A or a flying lady mascot from an Auburn boattail speedster?

              tbirdtbird,

              I asked because I have an Auburn 852 replica with a flying lady mascot. Was at a show this weekend and a visitor says "that's the most beautiful thing I have ever seen" His wife says, "You say that with me standing right next to you?" He replies, "Well, the most beautiful thing that's not made up of human body parts". Sorry to get off subject but still wondering about the mascot on Mark's car.

                A Friend has Packards & Model As & has a Packard Lady, holding a WHEEL, on the cap of his GORGEOUS, all BLACK, Early '30 Standard Roadster. He's had it "forever" & has "restored" it three (3) times. And of course, it has RED wheels & BLACKWALLS.
                I was honored at being able to park Minerva, its' "twin" Coupe, next to him at a show!
                Yes, Minerva was all BLACK with RED wheels, BLACKWALLS & she was an Early '30 Standard, also!

              Darn it Mark, I was working undercover. Now I'm going to have to kill you and go into hiding.

              At least with a picture you can see what he looks like ! He's normally running all over the damn place, getting things done

                    Man, that first photo hurts!. Must be when he had his scooter accident. Been reading and enjoying his comments the last four years and it's nice to put a face to all the humor.

                    Pics are REALLY me. Pics LIE, shop floor looks like someone dumped cement & pea gravel. In reality, it was totally slick & smooth.
                    My "facelift" was not from my scooter crash, you don't need to know the details!

                      Tom is the best, a true artisan on Model A Fords. Great mechanic with good common sense and diagnostic ability. You don't see that much anymore, however, our local high school announced a few weeks ago they are bringing BACK shop class that they had dropped several years ago and encouraging kids to look into the trades and the mechanical side of making a living. It should do well.

                      Most people in college do not belong, in college. College is a money making for-profit concern that has been bilking people for years. Student debt levels today are over 1 Trillion dollars nationwide. A lot of that tuition pays the million dollar coaching salaries and sports programs at the big Universities and all that related nonsense.

                      We need today's schools to put out future Tom Wesenbergs more than anything.

                        I have to agree with you to a degree on the comment most people in college do not belong, in college. Where I was raised in my young years not near as many my age went to college. Where I now live a lot of people have gone to college and not benefit from it one bit. I know some with an engineering degree and not worked a single day in their life. What a waste! I don't think I've done so bad to be able to retire at the age of 61 without a college degree. And I'm fortunate enough to be able to support my automotive hobby on a small scale. Nearly all of my working days for a paycheck were pulling wrenches. Sorry to get off the subject.

                        Yeah I guess I pulled this off-topic my apologies. And Dennis you are right, I know people with fancy degrees that are working in retail dept. stores making a fraction of what other friends I have make as electricians-pipe fitters-plumbers and yes auto mechanics.

                        I worked at John Deere with guys that had Master's Degrees and they were working the assy. lines building Combines, painting, welding,,,,, and the reason was they were making double and triple what they would make with their college degree's field. A History degree or an English degree only takes you so far! And yes there was an engineer working as a blue collar guy, a tool and die maker. Another was a quality control inspector.

                        My point I guess in all this is, as I said, America needs Tom Wesenberg's it doesn't need some doofus that knows how to subjecate a sentence or write a thesis on the Battle of Waterloo.A kid today getting out of high school is a fool not to get into a trade.

                        Greasy, sweaty and dirty hands built this country. I loved my trade school, wish they had more for the younger generation that will never see a college.

                          great work Tom... wow!!! I'll bet you had them lining up for valve adjustments. Have you made it home yet!
                          PS.. probably the process of doing it put the grey in your hair....

                          I agree with kids don't know how to fix or do anything anymore. Shop classes should be mandatory.

                          My car has original paint that is far from perfect. I coat with gibbs oil that seems to fill all the deformities and give a nice appearance. The only problem is that it has to be re applied every month or so. Has anyone tried TOPCOATF11. Very expensive, but maybe that would fill the deformities and scratches in the paint's service but be more lasting. If you had any experience with this product, especially...

                          Tom Endy has had some health issues in the past few weeks.
                          While he was recovering from a nasty chest cold he had a heart attack which sent him to the hospital.
                          An angiogram found three arteries 75-90% blocked.
                          Tom had triple bypass surgery on December 23rd.
                          Tom is recovering in Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, CA.

                          I have read the entire 32 posts on paint and what to use and I have a nagging question.

                          What to use to keep the paint shiny and clean that will withstand mother nature. IF I paint my car, or have it done, in the near future it will still be stored outdoors in all the Southern Califlower elements, so I need to know, after I've spent these thousands of dollar on paint, what to use to keep

                          Single stage vs. base coat/clear coat
                          by Logan
                          I’ve read on this forum several times about how people don’t like the “base/clear” look. And that the single stage urethane is a more “correct” appearance. But as a professional painter I’ve never really understood the argument. Base clear is a much simpler system to make repairs on, the only advantage in my opinion to single stage is it’s cheaper to buy a one step system than a two...
