Two More Star Tourings

In the meantime you can see them at Ebay #.s 370719695811 and 370719079292
Now, Ed is the only person in the whole world with THREE 1923 Star Touring cars!!
There has got to be a story in this for the club magazine.

Re: Two More Star Tourings

Yes .. that's great. Missed them on ebay, as Star is not part of DMAC ebay, but sure send pics of them. Perhaps have them added to the photo section to increase members cars and what they look like. Lots of cars missing in photo's, which might help others in restoring cars, or parts oddities we didn't know existed.

Ha ha Don we both posted at same time and can see time difference. Will take a peek in ebay ,thanks.

Re: Two More Star Tourings

The items might be off Ebay by now. The best way to see the detailed pictures of the two Star cars that I bought would be to go to:
stlouismuseum.com and click on inventory. I see some things that are not Star correct that I have to change, I would like to hear from you all for your observations. I would like to get the Black one ready for Hershey this fall.
I am now working on getting them shipped from St Louis and finding a place to store them, as I am now out of space.

Hi Ed.....

Great looking Star cars.

I think you have cornered the market on 23 Star tourings.

Will make an interesting display of your cars at Hershey!

Re: Two More Star Tourings

After waiting all this time for the two Stars I bought to be delivered, I get a call that they were shipped from St Louis on wednesday coming to me on Saturday. Great, right into a two foot snow storm expected friday night into Saturday. I finally got in touch with the Carrier and told him he had better sleep in his rig for a day or two. Lets see what happens now. Good thing I put the insurance on them.

Re: Two More Star Tourings

Thought you might like a little snow out your way. Yes two storms I gather. One coming up from Texas and another from out West Can. We're into it presently and with wind blowing it around. Soon be out there shoveling again for 3rd time today. 0 F at 7 am and now 10 F. Go figure by Monday milder and rain called for.
