      Thanks Jerry,I was there last year, If you were there you might remember the green Crosley parked out side. That was me. I am planning on being there. I have a lot of questions I need to ask.

      Thanks, Barry Smedley

      I just bought a TQ midget about 2 months ago. I found mine on a
      vintage race car site called vr's vintage. They are a little hard to
      find. Mine is in boxes, but pretty well complete, it had a BSA 650
      motorcycle engine in it,(it is for sale.) I am converting mine to
      Crosley power.Hope to have it done for the 2004 nationals.
      Ther was a guy in up state New York that had one for sale. It was
      pretty well complete, I think he only wanted 2500.00 for it. I think
      I still have his e-mail adress if you are interested.

        I was at the Swap meet at the Marion County fair grounds the 17,18,and19th of September.
        Paul Gorrell from Burlington, Iowa had a TQ midget there with a flat eight Crosley engine in it that ran. He was looking for information about 6 cylinder Crosley engines. I do not have his Email, but someone on the list may have it.

          Hello,


          Well finally after checking in on this site for several months I
          see some talk about Crosley powered three quarter midgets.
          Hallejuah!
          I reccently acquired a TQ. It was originally Crosley powered
          but converted to motorcycle engine later. I got it as a kind of
          rolling basket case with 4 Crosley blocks and enough parts to maybe
          build two engines. One of the blocks is a Fageol 44 with Braje cam
          and water jacket covers, Weber carb ,headers for side pipe, and a
          Vertex magneto. I am looking for a Braje dual carb intake and an
          aluminum oil pan.
          The car has rectangular tube frame with torsion bar suspension, tube
          front axle, Friction shocks up front and Houdailes in rear, an in/out
          box, Crosley rear end with some sort of quick change box mounted to
          the front of it. It has an aluminum belly pan, fiberglass body, hood,
          and grill shell w Kurtis style grill.
          I have several questions for other Crosley TQ owners about motor
          mounts, bolting engine to in/out box, gears for quick change and so
          on. Its hard to find vintage Crosley TQ owners in SoCal so any help
          would surely be appreciated.
          Thanks

            --- Don, if you could get some pictures into photos to show what your
            concerns are we [crosley affectionados] can look for what you want to
            know about in cars we see and ask the proper questions....I am
            surprised that you can't find compodres in So. Cal. as I thought that
            was the 3/4 hub...look in Hotrod Magazine for a feature spread on
            3/4's; was around late 60's...might be some clues in pictures..I have
            seen at least 10 different Crosley [or descendats] powered TQ's in
            and around connecticut auto shows; even four at one alone and one
            this summer with an engine built by the late Joey D'angelo from North
            Haven, CT. Seb.

                Thanks Seb, I will try to post some pics in the next couple of days.
                We've got lots of Full midgets and 1/4 midgets but not too many
                Tq's. Supposedly mine was originally raced at indoor tracks in
                Indiana and Ohio.
                I don't remember the TQ spread in hot Rod but I'll try to find there
                archive site and find the article. They did a huge 1/4 midget spread
                Feb.58
                I just saw the awesome pic of Jerry Bickells TQ in the photo section
                of this site.

                  Another newbie here !
                  I bought a Crosley powered TQ off of ebay about a month ago. Its
                  actually a new car, 40-50's replica built by Ray Leasure & Russ
                  Hankins of Rushville Indiana. It has a torsion bar rear suspension,
                  Ross steering with leaf spring front. Complete Crosley drivetrain,
                  engine w/starter, clutch, 3spd trans w/rev, and locked rear end.
                  The body is fiberglass and aluminum. The car isn't finished, but I
                  should have it completed sometime next summer. Thanks to Jerry
                  Bickel for providing me with a lot of the info on my TQ !
                  I'll post some photos of it shortly.

                      Thanks for posting pics of your new TQ. they will be very helpful to
                      me for restoring my car. I'd like to email you with more
                      questions .
                      I posted some pics of mine in TQ Midget 2. I intend to restore it
                      with the same paint scheme as the 1/4 midget in the pics.
                      I've talked with Jerry Bickel and he is a wealth of information. He
                      identified my car as being built by Bud Wachholz in Indiana. Jerry
                      has original blueprints for the frame and is sending me a copy. The
                      quickchange is also a Wachholz item. I can't thank him enough.
