about Veteran Auto Lamps:
Our motto is:
Quality before quantity
Another order sent out recently was 3 specialty radiator caps for Bugatti’s… these will be plated and have springs added. We intend to try another process for these on the next run which should improve the shape authenticity and also minimize processing challenges.
“Received the caps today, thank you for mailing
them to me so quick.
“I was very pleased to receive the cowl lamps that you repaired for me today. They look great. I'm sure they were not this good when new. Thanks for your efforts and I look forward to doing business again should the need arise.”
I got my Corcoran generator from Veteran Auto Lamps and it was terrific. You could not have found a better made lamp anywhere. It will look great on my 1910 Model 10. They are wonderful people to deal with!
Thank you for letting me know about your time table regarding the restoration of my E&J lamps. Please know that I chose Veteran Auto Lamps for both quality and the trust that we have for each other. Please continue to hold my lamps on your list for doing the restoration work on them.
arrived yesterday in good shape. They are wonderful, and, again, I would
like to thank you and Ken for getting them done so soon. Please tell Ken
how much I admire job he did on the lamps.
The lamps have arrived at Mike Burns and he is VERY VERY Pleased. So I'm pleased as well.
Thanks for the quality job.
The lamp looks very nice, Ken your restoration work is a credit to you, many thanks .
Both Potato horns arrived here, safe and sound (no pun intended).
The two horns look Great! I can't believe the transformation.
Thank you again for your help on all this. Now let me see, what do you suppose my next project will be . . . . . . . .
Thanks, Doug Tomb.
safely, no damage. You are right the lamp are beautiful. Tell him
that I am sorry that the had to use bad words when he was working on
I like your personality! You're a good person.
Be proud of your craftsmanship. Your reputation is excellent. Bill Barth, one of the "legends" in Model T restoration here in the states, happens to live about 1 1/2 hours from here. Take satisfaction in knowing that when I told him I ordered my brass from you, he said you were "One of the best" and that it was a "Good decision". Heck, I knew that before I ordered!!!
Good press from him means a lot here. Really.
He outdid himself on the square side lamps!
Again, I can't thank you enough for the fine workmanship on these restorations; also for saving me the aggravation of finding someone to work on lamps other than for a Model T! It will be a while yet, but I will email you some shots of the completed Model 14.
A most beautiful gas generator arrived in the Post today! WOW! What a transformation from the sorry state it was in when I sent it down. Very impressive! I have already examined it thoroughly, inside and out.
I am headed to the HCCA Doylestown swap meet in Pennsylvania this next Sunday. Maybe I will even bring the generator to show off as an example of your output. Once I get back, I will get the generator fitted to the Buick.
Thanks again, Doug Tomb.
quote Meredith Wilson's musical, The Music Man, "I've never seen anything
so beautiful as these shiny gold things." Thank you! Daryl
I just received a set of Corcoran side and tail lamps made by Veteran Auto Lamps. They are exquisite and well worth the price. You could not imagine a more pleasant couple to deal with. If you look at their site's For Sale page, you'll see the little gold plated miniature lamps I make occasionally.
The lamp has
arrived. The lamp is a work of art. I am sure the original
was not nearly as perfect as the one you made for me. I look
forward to additional models you are going to produce. I was on the
phone last night with Ralph McNeal and he remarked that you both were very
gracious and glad he had the opportunity to meet you.
