What a treat. My Pastors father has a wonderful car collection and belt run machine shot that he has restored several cars in over the years. His cars start with a 1908 and go up to 2000. Most of which have been totally restored on premises.













Sears and Roebuck car.





Engine to be restored



His first restoration from 60 years ago. I think it is in the teens.



This cars flywheel weighed was most of the weight of the car.









1920 Federal Motor Truck





Several Buggies

A 2000 Corvette that my daughter missed a picture of. Now that was a pretty good idea of his cars. Then there was he clubs cars that came out to celebrate his 80th birthday.



































Several cars came and went while were were there. Total about 45 cars from the club, so we took very few pictures. But enjoy what we did get.

Those King Midgets are something else. I met a guy last year that was the only original owner left in the country, and he shared a ton of info about them with me.

I guess they were only available by ordering one from the back of a popular science magazine, or something like that. He took the bus to Indiana to pick his up brand new and drove it home right from the factory. He drove his over 100,000 miles on the original drivetrain before pro-streeting it with a crotch rocket motor.

Here's a pic of how big they aren't.



Can you imagine driving that go cart for over 100k miles??!!

Neat thread and pix Tim!
