Welcome to The Classic Preservation Coalition
Hello, my name is Hal, and I've been around long enough to be considered a classic myself. Long enough, in fact, to highly value nostalgia -- days and people gone by, but still here in spirit. Old cars and boats and practices and arts and ways of doing things. The memories of then infused into now. On this site, you will find information about my classic carburetor and fuel pump restoration services, about rebuilding kits I sell for classic carburetors and fuel pumps, about Hal's Blog, in which I try to share the past in a way that I hope makes you not only understand it, but feel it as well, and a host of other classic products, services, and ways of life.

This is the newest handmade boat model in the Classic Handmade Wooden Boat Model section of this site. It's an amazingly exciting model at a whopping 27" long by 10" wide by 9" tall. But there's more: it has working red and green lights, a single motor that runs on 2 C size batteries and a stand which is included with every order for this boat.

Benjamin Franklin had utmost faith in what he called the "middling people" -- the shopkeepers and tailors, and blacksmiths -- all the middle class folks who did the work that made the colonies, then the early USA, work. In fact, he entrusted the fate of the nation to them. Today, we might consider rekindling this waning faith, because now, as then, those "middling people" are still the ones who make this country work.
