I think one of the members reproduced the levers.  He posted pictures maybe 6 months ago.

Crosley in older Calendar

Mike S
 

While going thru some old files from my working career, found this calendar that one of my suppliers had given me back in 2011.  The September car was a yellow '48 station wagon.  Says the owner is/was Mike R Smith.  I don't see the name in the roster.  Anyone know if the car or the owner are still around?

Ok, I get it. Had to look up PEMDAS. It's not how I was taught many years ago. But I guess it shows my decades. Thank You for setting me straight.

I tip my hat to the math teacher. In my discipline equations are - let’s call it “over defined” to leave nothing that could be misinterpreted. I do take exception however,  to any expression that has 3 equal signs in it.

You beat me Kap. Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally . I agree.


Re: Crosley quarterly puzzle

Barb Kapraun
 

From Kap: “ Hey guys didn’t you learn PEMDAS in school?”
Kap taught math for 54 years the answer given is correct!


Re: Crosley quarterly puzzle

David Stubenvoll
 

Was just looking at it again and it may have been a typo
6+(4+4x10) = 86 would work with parentheses 


Re: Crosley quarterly puzzle

David Stubenvoll
 

Andy, I spent my entire career as a mechanical engineer and I’ve never seen math explained as it was in the Quarterly. I just assumed that my slide rule and I don’t subscribe to “new math” principles. 140 is my number as well.

Edited

The puzzle on page 15 has been driving me nuts. I think the answer on page 28 is wrong. The answer
Show is 4+4=8x10=80+6=86.  I believe it should be 6+4+4x10= 6+8x10= 14x10=140. The answer should be 140. Am I wrong ?

Was this the VC that was for sale in Eugene OR,?  I live about 45 minutes from it if it was. If you need any help  just let me know.

I don’t know if they fit in fair price or exorbitant but I have had good luck with Passport Transport  I have never had them move a Crosley but have had them ship several trucks for me. All in enclosed trucks and very careful. Not sure a Crosley would fit in their upper racks but it would fit in the bottom area I saw a 3 wheel motorcycle in that area when they made one of my deliveries. Just make sure they know the problems of moving a Crosley when you ask for a quote. 

I have my own horror stories with a broker. I know there are probably some honest ones but the first time was so bad I would not take a chance again. I told this to a friend that transports for a broker and he thought I was a bit to closed minded. Apparently the broker he works for does not use wildcat drivers and contracts independent drivers that only work for him. I can see where that would be better.

Hello all, I received a great response from my previous post - thank you!
Now I need help moving my dream car from Oregon to Wisconsin. I’ve already contacted numerous brokers, also Freighter Jim, Bill’s Auto Works, etc. Have to be honest, brokers scare me. I’ve had one horror story in the past where my car was late and delivered to the wrong address. Fortunately the good folks there knew I was a car guy and they called to see if it was mine. The driver couldn’t speak English and had evidently lost the paperwork. I’m not going that route again. 

Please let me know if you have any contacts or good ideas that could help. I’m willing to pay a fair but not exorbitant amount and could meet someone in Iowa or Illinois if they are coming across on 80. 

also the current owner of the car is very gracious and has the vehicle well stored. It doesn’t have to be moved immediately so any time in the next few months will work. Snow won’t disappear here until April anyway. 

Thank you all again, “Crosley” is a great community!

I agree with Jim, Reliable is great to work with, when I was at the Mercedes Classic Center we used them quite often with excellent results. Some carriers may change out cargo at different hubs from trailer to trailer which can increase the chance of damage. Reliable hauls a lot of classic cars and takes care of their loads very well.

Dave, bite the Bullitt and use Reliable. I move several cars a year, and they are the most professional group you will find. I won't bore you with the stories of their exceptional drivers.

Mine is a '47 PU. My spare mounts onder the rear of the bed. There is a 17" bar that clips to the frame, and bolts to the rear bumper.    .......Jim.
