      BEAUTIFUL CAR AND GREAT VIDEO

      Thanks for posting this. Nice job on the car. Interesting destination. Please allow one constructive criticism, and remember, I generally appreciate what you are doing. As you mentioned, "sorry for the shaking". For the few posters still unaware: For around $50. you can get a decent video camera that has stabilization (anti shake). If you will buy a new camera, you will get more views, and re-coup the money spent on the camera by getting more advertising money. I noticed you are asking for Patreon investors - you are more likely to get investors if you make a better video (you spent thousands of dollars restoring that car - spend a few more on a camera). Once again, nice job on the car (please open the hood, and scan the interior).

      Nice to see Roadking on a road trip! Never heard of that park or a bicycle railway but thanks for sharing that cool little historical gem. Your buddy's car is sweet too. Cant think of a better way to visit a place like that. Most guys idea of fun in their spare time is watching some crappy sports thing on tv. You guys do way cooler shit on your down time! Jim

      Ooooo beautiful car, and a straight eight too. I'll bet that's a smooth running engine/car.

      Oakland had the V8 for one year only in 1916, then discontinued until 1930. They both were flatheads, Chevrolet was the one with the OHV V8 in 1917-1919.

      Well then, there's one I missed. I was thinking that Buick used straight eights, but didn't know that Oakland was connected with the Pontiac's of the era.
      Do you know what size V8 it was ?

      I think he might have a V8 in there!! Oakland started using them in 1916!!☺
