Cocktails & Carburetors is back!

posted by Jerry Ludwig, Landmark Society Trustee and old car enthusiast

Which doesn’t belong: Solex, Stromberg, Weber, Rochester, S-U, Carter, Zenith, Cosmopolitan?  I don’t have a clue how many Generation Xers or Millennials could answer that question…perhaps more than I imagine.  However, unless one is a true “gear head” carburetors don’t mean much anymore. Cars now use fuel injection to mix the precise about of air and fuel to provide combustion in an engine.

There was a time when all of the above carburetors (except Cosmopolitan) were affixed to the intake manifolds of engines to do the “mixing” of air and gasoline to properly “feed” the engine.

Since this is a Cocktails and Carburetors event, it does make sense to include “Cosmopolitan”.  Interestingly, that this was also the name of an upscale Lincoln model in the early 1950s.

One thing I’ve discovered is that many old house enthusiasts are also interested in older cars.  Or any cars for that matter.  Even if you’re not much of a car fan, this is one event that you should not miss.  Much the same way that period houses are cared for by their owners, older cars also need love and attention.  An evening such as this will give one insight as to just how that happens.
