Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...

1937 Cord 812

I've been in love with these cars since I was a little kid. My dad helped a friend restore two of them. The interesting past about that story was that while once came from southern Indiana, and the other in Kansas, it was discovered that they had consecutive serial numbers.

Supercharged V8, front wheel drive, flip-up headlamps.

A great set up photos here

Beautiful car Lew.
I love the ACD museum in Auburn Indiana. Those cars were works of art.
I may not be good, but I'm slow.
