On October 31, this steam beauty under the hammer at Bonhams in London, unfortunately, I sit myself in the car on the road just to London that day, so I do not buy it.
It is estimated that it will fetch at least 350,000: - £, which corresponds well a bit over 4 million ....
It is a Gardner Serpollet manufactured in France in 1904 or 1905. Check this link https://www.bonhams.com/video/17679/
The other day his eyes fell on this document, a list of known steam car makers in the US alone.
Most of steam car makers occurred as we know, in America, but that there have been 125 makes a surprise.
A small tipps all excited ångvänner.
In the latest issue of Nostalgia are a couple of really interesting stories about steam things are, and if the steam-powered cranes and then a story about a very extensive renovation of an old steamer.
As a bonus there is also a picture of the team partner Erling Carlsson's delicious Stanley (albeit misspelled in the text) and not forgetting a tresidesreportage from his friend and who is also team partner Ove Svensson's huge telephone collection ....
rush off and buy a copy before they sell out !!!
A new project is so small that the text begins .... This time a Stanley.
We must begin by identifying the parts and check how much is missing.
Here we see various pumps etc to air and water.
I am a self-taught steam car engineer whose interest is in the renovation, repairs and manufacturing of steam car parts....
