Re: Another Flint find...

Hi Bill and Bjorg. Is this the Flint up in Perchastin (off97)? An older fellow (than me) had some things for sale at the Monroe Swap meet a few years back. I thought he said something about a Flint touring he had. Gary

Re: Another Flint find...

Yes Gary, this is the car...His name is Ed Harmel and he belonged to our local car club, Ed also belonged to the DMAC for a coupla years, he had some bad strokes and passed away, I bought the car from his Daughter who came out from Oklahoma to sell what they could and were going to haul what didn't sell back to OK and take it to the next Chickasha swap meet...I also bought a lot of shop equipment that I didn't have.....I am thinkin I will leave this Flint Touring here in Leavenworth for a summer project and will probably take "Higby" the 1925 Flint H-40 to AZ next week when we head south for the winter and finish the restoration on it there, this was the Flint that met it's demise at the San Diego national Meet a coupla years ago, I do have it re-powered now and running great, and hey it even stopps now...

Peggy, I think that Bjorg had this "Diamond in the rough" on facebook almost before I got it unloaded off the trailer.

Bill:

Congratulations on another great find! I am sure that you will have another fine vehicle when you have this one completed. You are sure getting a fine stable of vehicles. Best of luck to you and Bjorg. We have fond memories of our visit to Washington.

Re: Another Flint find...

Thanks Gord...

Yes, It seams that I have more cars than garage space...I have the Flint H-40 Couplet Barome loaded in the enclosed trailer, also removed all the bright work from the new Flint B-40 Touring and will take that along, the chrome shop in Yuma is under new management and have gotten somewhat spendy, thinking about checking out a shop in Mexicali, Mexico....Will be heading for warmer weather in the morning.

You and Mary Carolyne have a great winter.
