Vintage Brass General "quick-aid" Extinguisher With Bracket/chris-craft 1949-52 on 2040-parts.com
Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States
is an empty vintage brass fire extinguisher made
by the General Fire Extinguisher Co. and it is model 85HD. It is the 1
qt. size and is about 14" long and comes with it's original mounting
bracket which has a new coat of maroon paint. It has been polished
and lacquered and as you can see in the pictures, it displays very
well. Someone did a lot of work on the website "vintagefe" and that
site states that General fire extinguishers were featured in Chris-Craft
accessories from 1937 to 1960. This would be the correct extinguisher
for a 1949 - 1952 Chris-Craft boat. The extinguisher has some small dings on both sides of the brass label but don't show up well in the pictures, they are that small. The T pump handle moves in and out
as designed. The brass label retains nearly
all of it's original paint but some has faded over the last 60+ years. The would make a great addition to a
collection or mounted on a vintage boat, car, or truck. Please check
out my other vintage fire extinguishers I have listed.

Spyker has debuted the Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder at Pebble Beach
So it’s entirely fitting that Spyker should bring along the Spyker C8 Aileron Spyder to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event this weekend, to show off what they have to offer. After all, with the target being 50% of Spykers going to the States in future, this is the single most important market for Spyker. Spyker has a big advantage with the C8 Aileron Spyder.

The 2013 Range Rover has been given its public debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and takes centre stage on the Land Rover stand. We know, for example, that the new Range Rover weighs as much as 420kg less than the current model, that it comes with a choice not just of a 4.4 litre V8 diesel and 5.0 litre supercharged 5.0 litre V8 – as in the current model – but also get a new 3.0 litre diesel option. Which, thanks to all that weight loss, is as quick – and far more economical - than the 4.4 V8 diesel was in the current model.
