An Ultimate Garage

In my Twitter feed David Burge (@iowahawkblog) revealed his “Ultimate Garage” although he called it his “wish list.” (He didn’t just reveal it in my Twitter feed, obviously. I follow him on Twitter, on the recommendation of Bill James.) When I saw the list of vehicles I tweeted him if I could use them as an Ultimate Garage in my blog. He has never replied. Since he put them on “social media” I’m just going to run with the principle that they are in the public domain. I will be pasting them from his tweets and sometimes Twitter has some hidden codes that can ruin spacing in other venues. Forewarned is forearmed. From David Burge:

1957 Ford Fairlane 500 convertible with F code 312

30/31 Model A pickup

39 Ford or Mercury coupe or convertible

39 Lincoln Zephyr

41 Buick or Caddy Sedanette

1924-30 Excelsior-Henderson

47-53 Indian Scout


OK, I have no interest in the motorcycles, but the cars from ’41 are interesting to me. To wit:

From a picture of a 1941 Buick Super. Below, from, is a picture of a 1941 Buick Sedanette, which I don’t think could have been a Super (Series 50), but had to be either a Special (Series 40) or a Century (Series 60):

About 98,000 Special Sedanettes and about 6,000 of the Century Sedanettes were sold in 1941. OK, what do you think? Are any of these vehicles in your Ultimate Garage? Do you think I am dragging out the reveal of mine too much?

Compulsion defeated disappointment…
