Image tagging - chassis[edit]

Hi again. Please add a new license to Image:Chassis with suspension and exhaust system.jpg, {{GPL}} is for software. Thank you. / Fred J 12:55, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I did not know that licensing was for software. How about this one {cc-by-sa-2.5} after all, it is a picture of a almost base chassis that I took and now others can use. I simply checked the My Own Work selection button and picked the suggested option in the drop down box. I am not very good at this licensing area. Bear with me. Please let me know if this is correct one to use. If it not, then please change it and let me know what I should use for the next time. Thanks - CZmarlin 21:41, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
It is fine. / Fred J 17:19, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Image:Thomas_B_Jeffery_Works_Drawing.jpg[edit]

Hello, and thank your for sharing your files with Commons. There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. Please remember that all uploads require source, author and license information. Could you please resolve these problems, which are described on the page linked in above? Thank you. --Siebrand 21:24, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Ok, I added the tag for this drawing from "The Jeffery Four." (Kenosha, Wis.: Thomas B. Jeffery Co., published 191?), a 28-page pamphlet about the Jeffrey four-cylinder automobile - circa 1916. — CZmarlin 21:35, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Image:Carburetor_one_barrel_Carter-BBD_on_a_258_CID_AMC_engine.JPG[edit]

CZ, couple things: Firstly, the photo doesn't show what you say it shows; you need a new description. In fact, this photo shows a Carter BBD ("Ball & Ball Dual-throat") 2bbl carburetor, which saw wide use on Chrysler and AMC products. AMC didn't use the BBS ("Ball & Ball Single-throat") on the 258. They used the Holley 1931 and the Carter RBS ("Remote Bowl Single-throat"). Secondly, could you please give this image a much shorter, more tractable name? This what you've named it is like eBay's three-mile-long URLs. You needn't try to incorporate a whackload of keywords into the image title; images are easily and successfully searchable without this sort of diddling. This kind of lengthy title really makes a damnuisance when trying to incorporate the image into an article. A photo title really shouldn't need more than three words, four tops. Thanks. —Scheinwerfermann 03:39, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing out my mistakes here — as well as the same text that you posted on my Wikipedia page. It helps to remind me of my wayward work! Yes, I am absolutely wrong about the one-barrel description, since it is a two-barrel model. Regarding the naming of files, I was using the image on the carburetor article as a template (1961 Ferrari 250 TR 61 Spyder Fantuzzi engine.jpg) that includes eight words, thus giving the image a description of almost everything except the color of the engine and the car! Once again, I am very sorry and thanks again for reminding me of my errors! As a more knowledgeable Wikipedian, I am sure you will now correct and change the name of this image file. Thanks — CZmarlin 17:30, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Developing a webpage[edit]

Hello, I'm Pawel Swiadr and I'm curently developing a webpage, intended to turn into a portal someday :), called dyfer.pl It is supposed to be a database on RWD vehicles, all post-war and currently produced. I find your photos very worthy for my project, and I can see you're of Polish origin. I'd be glad to get in touch with you, so don't hesitate to contact me at ps@dyfer.pl, or skype: pawel-swiader. All the best, PS.

1960 Rambler[edit]

Hello, I rescued my beloved 1960 AMC Rambler from the scrapyard and I am in need of parts, especially trim clips. I live in Middletown, NJ.

If you can help I would be very greatful.

Thanks John

johnswishlist@yahoo.com

John, Thanks for your posting and question. It is good to know that you have saved your 1960 AMC Rambler! You can find a very supportive AMC hobby with owners and parts vendors that will help you out. I would suggest you contact the national clubs because they may have a chapter close to you.
They will also list numerous parts vendors. One that I have done lots of business and been very happy is Kennedy American, but there are others. You should also attend an AMC/Rambler car show. You will find other similar models to yours and swap hints and stories about the cars with their owners. You will also be able to get parts and accessories at these meets. I hope this helps ... and one again, congratulations on your Rambler! And, keep on AMCing! CZmarlin (talk) 21:01, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

File:1939 Hudson Speedster racecar 2012 AACA Iowa f.jpg[edit]

Hi CZ. I cannot believe that 1939 is the date of manufacture of this car. Maybe 1919? How can we find out the correct answer? Regards, Eddaido (talk) 10:58, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Good question Eddaido! However, this is what was claimed by the owner of the car! You can also see the registration for the vehicle in Class 24A as a 1939 Hudson Speedster, and it earned a "First Junior" at the Central Spring Meet on June 23, 2012. See here: http://www.aaca.org/images/meet_results/2012/2012_central_spring_meet_IA.pdf
It is definitely not listed as one of the models offered by Hudson in 1939, as can be seen in the full line manual. See here: http://www.oldcarbrochures.org/NA/Hudson/1936_Hudson/1936_Hudson_-_How_What_Why?page=1
Was it just a leftover chassis, customized, or purpose built for use on the dirt tracks of that era? Perhaps its owner could solve the puzzle? I did not meet them at this show in 2012. The Antique Automobile Club of America library in Hershey, Pennsylvania, may also have additional information about this vehicle or about the rules and vehicle requirements for dirt track racing. See here: http://www.aacalibrary.org
My responsibility was only for taking the pictures (together with the owner's card) and then uploading some of them into the Commons! Yet I know something seems not right with the year on this speedster! I hope this helps! CZmarlin (talk) 19:41, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
