    Pictures do not leave any room for doubt. That is one HECK of a rare engine you have in your hands. Im drooling. I bought a 41 indian chief twin for 50 bucks when I was 13. My dad was so mad when I pushed it home that I promised he would never see it again. I deep 6ed it in the back shed so deep that I didn't find it until I was 23.( I moved out of my parents house at 17) Sold it for 13K and that was too cheap!

After talking with the owner about the car my standard procedure is to mention I'm into old motorcycles because you might get a lead in something. Boy did I! The guy knew it was worth some cabbage and was asking $10,000 for it and I thought it probably was worth more than that. I couldn't convince my wife and I was not confident enough to pay out that much cash. I passed the tip onto another motosicko friend who paid the ten grand. He took it to Big antique MC swap meet and Mike Wolfe from American Pickers bought it for $20,000. He's got a 1908 Indian but with the single cylinder engine. He's putting the twin in it. Actual production figures are not known but the estimate is 200 v twins were built that year and 1907 was the first year of the twin. Think about...This thing survived 110 years and two world war scrap drives. How many could possibly be left! By the way the carb is on upside down and the intake is backwards. I lost sleep over that one for weeks.
    He doubled his money! And I hear those guys are worth millions, Mike and Frank. This thread seems to be about success stories too!

    Sidevalve, I'm glad somebody posted a picture of something to go with their story. I would think that somebody would've taken pictures of some of the great cars that have come and gone through the years. Never had much in the way of rides growing up, so I like seeing what everybody else had. These were stolen one night off the wall of my shop 2 or 3 years ago. They represented about 25 years of looking. 99% sure of who did it, but on the positive side, it was a wake-up call to put my arrowhead collection in a gun safe instead of naively thinking I could share it with the customers that come through my place. Fortunately, the maggot had not been in my place for a couple of years because I had straightened up things and put a frame of much nicer artifacts on each of the other 3 walls. He went straight to the spot in the dark where these were, missing the good stuff.

    When I was a kid, I liked arrowheads but didn't really know where to look. On her way to the post office, Mama ran into a couple of little girls who showed her an arrowhead they found while wading in a local creek. She bought it from them for 35 cents and gave it to me. It was what I know now to be a Savannah River type, about 3" long, perfect, and glossy chert about the color of watered down milk. I was showing it to my former brother-in-law, a great guy who I still think the world of who dropped it as he was handing it back to me, breaking off a good portion of the tip. Not the worst thing that could happen in the big picture, but we do learn as we go through life.

    Sorry, man. Somehow, I missed that altogether. That body style is as good as it gets. What a shame there's not even a Pontiac being made today. Thanks for sharing.

    When I was a kid I was always interested in bottle dumps because my parents had some old bottles that they had dug before I was born. As a 13-16 year old I had located a couple old dump spots and dug up a small collection of bottles. It seems to be part of murphy's law that all bottle dumps have poison ivy or oak. I got poison oak every time I dug but I would wait until it was cold and go out there. That helped but I still got it every time! My finds were not incredible but I really loved those bottles. In my early 20's my mom sold our house and moved with the bottles. They made the move but sat in a leaky trailer for a couple years and I never saw them again. I still think about them. The plus side is that I did have some smaller artifacts that survived the move and I still have them today. The bottles are gone but I still have the memories!
