A Tjaarda at love?[edit]

This page says it's John Tjaarda; this page says Ron Tjaarda. Who's right? TREKphiler hit me ♠ 10:47, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Tjaarda (1897–1962) was Dutch-American, his name by birth is Joop Tjaarda van Starkenberg. After coming to the U.S., he renamed himself John Tjaarda (around 1923). His son Tom Tjaarda is a automobile designer, too, having worked for Pininfarina,

Ghia, or Italdesign. His best-known work is probably the De Tomaso Pantera. --Chief tin cloud (talk) 11:52, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Cord body dies[edit]

After the demise of the Cord Corporation, Norman De Vaux was able to buy the 810/812 body dies (for $40,000, iirc). He tried to push a car of his own, again (he already did before with the short-lived De Vaux in 1932). When this failed he sold the dies to Hupp. --Chief tin cloud (talk) 11:52, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Didn't the Graham Brothers buy the body dies when Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg went out of business in 1936? Why isn't this in the article? Its mentioned on this website... http://www.delahayeusa.com/N_carsunderconstruction.html --76.105.145.143 (talk) 06:58, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

Trim of ELS[edit]

I've just trimmed the EL section. The only one of note is the How Stuff Works article, which could possibly be used as a reference, but it's not an appropriate EL. WLU (t) (c) Wikipedia's rules:simple/complex 14:51, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

No Graham-Paige after 1931[edit]

There is no mention that G-P replaced the name Graham-Paige for their cars during model year 1930 (with the 2nd series 1930) by Graham. --Chief tin cloud (talk) 09:35, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
