Gotta See This Star Car

There is a super cute Star on Ebay. It's listed as a '25 but is actually a 1927. Would make a fabulous parade driver as is. Maybe someone in the Northwest can snatch it up. I sure wish it was closer to me.

Re: Gotta See This Star Car

See you also informed him it was a late 27 Star M, which it now shows, plus I provided the info on the 1921 Oldsmobile used in the Beverly Hillbillies on TV.
I found the same year Oldsmobile outside Ottawa, years back, on a farm turned into a saw machine. Touring body was across the road back in the cedars where they dumped metal and stuff out of sight. Frame cut in half and moved one part under the other so power could turn the 4 ft blade to rip boards. They also had a 30 Ford A one the same idea. Brass Ford T rad in the shed rafters, where the Old's shortened frame arrangement was at the farm. Ford A one left outside where remains of the mill was.

OOOOO! OOOOO! OOOOO! Dad Gum Ross, You make it verrrrry difficult for me to talk myself out of this. Do you have a barn or shed to keep it out of all that rain up there? It's really not worth 3000 much less the 7500 "Buy it Now" price but if I can work a deal with him,,,,,,OOOOO! OOOOO! OOOOO! I really appreciate the offer, let me see what I can do.

Well Don I don't have anyway to keep it dry except a blue tarp, but a little more (potential) moisture couldn't hurt it anymore than the last 80 years? Ross

Re: Gotta See This Star Car

I joined this club back in December to seek help on my old car "Addiction". Since then I not only purchased a Roadster but A Coupe to match!
I see there are others who suffer from the same disease as I do. I feel better already!

Now if I could only convince the Mrs...............

Good luck Don on your next purchase!

Re: Gotta See This Star Car

Well, I had a good nights sleep on the matter, and weighed my options. There's not a lot of sheet metal left on this old Star so a restoration to anything is out of the question. It should be left and loved as it is now. I do have the '26 Coupster without a top that I brought back from WA state. It will make a super woody something.
Anyway, someone has already out bid me on this particular car. Anybody we know??

Wow, it just sold for $5000 smackers. I am without words to comment on this sale. Hey, Frank, the equity in our stash and cars just went up.
