1911 Everitt Model Four -30 Touring Car
Going to try to type this again. Had it all typed and then lost the internet. Very frustrating. Got up early today. Had to take the motor home in to get the headlights fixed. Unfortuantely, they didn't have the item needed to fix them. Had to order it overnight which means they propably won't get it until Thursday. Hope to get them fixed Friday. Of course, we don't need headlights up here because it doesn't get dark but there are some areas where they have to be turned on all the time. We went to the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum today. Beautiful cars. This collection is owned by one man. There are 84 cars in the collection and 65 on the floor. All but 3 are in running condition and are often used in local parades. Jim and I had our picture taken in a 1911 Everitt Model Four - 30 Touring Car. Outside was a 1918 Duplex 4WD Flatbed Truck. One that I really liked was a 1917 Ford Model T Snow Flyer "Moose Gooser". It has "skis" on the front and wheels with continuous metal tracks on the back. This was used by those needing to get around in

the snow. Another interesting car was a 1921 Heine-Velox made in San Francisco. It was the most expensive car then - $25,000. Would be $300,000 in today's dollars. It was "guaranteed" to go 100 mph. Only 5 were made but the maker, Heine, refused to sell a single car. This car was acquired from his estate. I also liked a 1932 Cadillac - 16 cylinder v-type overhead valve - cost $5,445.
