We are spending the afternoon at Old Sturbridge Village. The village is an open-air Museum. Once a year they open the Village Green to have an automobile Festival. The numbers of SACA Northeast use the event as a get together location for our June meetings.
We have four steam cars here today. My 1912 20 horse touring car John Linderman with his 20 horsepower 1910 model 70, David Nerrgaard in his 1923 Stanley and a 19-1 replica locomobile Surry. As you can see from the photos a good number of internal explosion cars. I hope you enjoy the photos.
We have a new article in the magazine.
THE SECOND STEAM CAR BUILT EXPRESSLY FOR F.E.'s SON. Part one.
Here are a few pictures of the restored acetylene generator and the Ducellier Phares acetylene spot-lamp/rear view mirror i purchased recently. I have replaced the rear mirror and front glass both 4mm thick the rear parabolic lens and burner jet are original, the lamp is approx. about 1910. I had to make the support swivel bracket as I imagined it may have looked it is all brass and bronze,I have incorporated a gas control cock as part of the assembly to make it usable from the driving seat. as you can see the generator as received from Australia has its mounting lugs cut off but otherwise it was sound, with no dents, and had both its inner carbide buckets. It is piped up to the spotlamp the headlamp will remain electric. Like many people I don`t go out in the dark!. I hope these pictures are of interest.
Came across this photo of a White steam car in Australia, dismantled to be used as a water pump!

Today we have been plugging the Carfest events at which we are taking part.
It isn't the only new thing we are embarking on this year of course as we have previously announced.
August 4th, 5th & 6th will see the National host a marquee at the South Cerney event in Gloucestershire.
As well as all the usual information, membership and sales items we are also putting together a small display of Likamobiles and Locomobiles.
We already have a couple of fine examples lined up and would welcome a couple more to either sit outside in steam or as a static exhibit inside.
If you are interested please contact the National via: firstname.lastname@example.org
