This might be the second time I have ever come to this portion of this forum, I only did so because I saw a heading that said porcelain carburetor and that made me curious.  I then saw a heading that said picture for me.

That is a very nice picture and thank-you for thinking of me!  I will try and print that to frame.
Always looking for what interests me, anything early Dodge Brothers/Graham Brothers trucks ( pre 1932 or so ) and slant six / Super six parts.

There is  another whole story on the side of the building, google  Frank Seiberling, Goodyear, and Seiberling Tire co, for the bored who like financial intrigue ;P

(If you ever wondered what ever happened to the hundreds of little tire companies, that will give you the answer...)
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.
