Thanks for asking, Basil.
Currently the shop is strewn with massive wood and brass parts from a turn-key restoration of a 1910 Seagrave horse-drawn hose wagon - a piece of historical fire fighting apparatus. It's shown on our website as an 1898, however during our recent research we turned up an actual Seagrave painter's list showing the unit by serial number as being a 1910.
The owner was only mildly miffed that he bought it as an 1898, it seems that previous owners had also mistaken its true age. Still, at 102 years old, it has plenty of exciting history behind it. These old vehicles tend to get "older" as they change hands over the years, don't they?
We're also in final negotiations on a new frame project for a 1913 Stanley Model 64 Roadster, and are working with a gentleman neeeding some restoration work on a 1901 U.S. Long Distance Runabout, a one-cylinder tiller-steer Stanhope along the lines of the Locomobiles. Both promise to be exciting projects and we'll offer up progress photos as they unfold.
