Model on a Model A
 

2 Attachment(s)
A couple of days ago, there appeared a posting of an attractive lady posing on a vintage vehicle which resulted in a number of interesting comments.
In attempting to answer some of those comments, I was unable to locate the posting and I suspect it may well have been removed and its possible this one will too?
Here we have a Model A and a model, both the same age, both in similar condition (taken in 2004) Both models don't look a lot different today except the human one has been fitted with a few replacement parts.
The Model A is an Australian wide bed ute or RPU in surprisingly original condition and I have posted photos of it some years ago

Trying not to look at the “a model” but the “model a” is pretty cool. Those almost look like the original Victorian plates, but are more likely an early re-registration. I had a 27 Chev on original plates, which were 5 digits. The plates would be worth a pretty penny on their own now - probably more than the car, I hate to say (but who’d part with them?). Did you steal this Ute from Australia? :D

This place is a disgusting mess, no wonder why all the gurus have left. I guess no one else has the balls to speak up.

I don't see a problem here, the truck does not look to be abused, and the model seems to be having fun...nothing indesent.
Of course I was expecting a female model...
This site is for information, sharing and FUN.
If you suck the fun out of this site then I'm gone...what's the point...I could open a book to get what I need.
I like the jokes, puns and general oddball behaviour of some of the Barner's, but I love the information that comes with it all.
Keep it up guys.

so an SBC guy can attack a Model A with impunity?

Perhaps if he was a younger, healthier guy like this 40 year old picture of Burt.

Not a re-registration, Dad's first and second A's were 6 digit rego's, 169xxx, and 132xxx. Still have both cars, and rego history back to new. I'm currently finishing off his restoration on his second, and will hopefully get around to restoring his first one day.

What years? I wonder when they changed from 5 to 6 digits?
How lucky are you to have two family-owned As! :D

Late 28, early 29. Both are tourers, and the first one is the car dad learnt to drive in.

"Smart" folks? This thread isn't to my taste but if people are doing to digital anhero over a joke that wasn't even directed at them, then they weren't cut out for life outside a cardboard box anyway.
Here i was thinking only millennials and people who get offended by my red hat with white writing on it packed a sad over nothing.
