Re: OT: Is a 'themed' shop necessary to a (potential) customer??

My favorite TV "Car Show" is "Graveyard Cars", it looks as clean as any hospital and they turn out first class restorations IMO, even though post WWII cars are a walk by for me at shows. A "Clean...

Re: under 3000. club.....?

You can build a car for under $3,000.00, just takes good bookkeeping. If you buy a junk Model A for $1,000.00 and sell off unwanted parts for $500.00 you have a $500.00 pile of keeper parts. Buy more...

Re: Shocks

Are these friction shocks the same style you would see on a 1920'-1930's dirt track race car? Sure would like to see a photo of them on an A. Bob

Re: Installing the Hub Caps on 1928 and 1929 Model A's

Re: seat belt photo request - 1931 slant windshield

Please don't think a closed Model A is somehow safer than an open one. This is how a 1931 Slant Window Fordor looks with the tin removed. Bob

Re: Model a cowl differences

They are the same as far as I know. Is the sub rail area really rusty or just the outer cowl panels? Replacing the cowl panels rather that the whole cowl may be the way to go. Bob
