Re: Hooper Daimlers

Re: Engine woes. ! !

Al, your predicament reminds me of Tsarevich's Alexei's illness and Rasputin. Doctors kept prodding the Tsarevich Alexei's body and making his Haemophilia bleeding worse until Rasputin told everyone to leave him alone, and he got a bit better.

Re: Strange Case of Door Handles

We had this come up on the old forum, it's something to do with having a chauffeur.

Engine number as read by the seller:
7K1190
