I can remember when Made in Japan meant junk, too. Not true for many years now.

Why are things made in China, because they are cheap and we want cheap. It's one of the ways Walmart became so...

RIP: Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond)

The actor who played Eddie Haskell on Leave it to Beaver just died. All of us who saw the show know the character he played. What does that have to do with Ford V8s? Their friend Lumpy had a 40...

Re: New toy....

I second Juliano's for seatbelts. I installed shoulder belts in my 39 Fordor using their B pillar mounting hardware.

Re: Is this rumour correct?

I have to say I enjoy getting the hard copy magazines and I get a bunch. I belong to both Model T clubs, both Model A clubs, the V8 Club, AACA and the Lincoln Zephyr Club. I also get John Levoy's...

Re: PayPal and eBay getting a dicorce

You can pay for and print a shipping label at USPS.com. I think you can measure and weigh the package and it will provide the pricing. If it is off, they will bill you the difference. Ask me how I...

Re: Coronavirus vs "A" Drive

Re: Make a model T a little more safe

Re: Bratton's & Covid-19

I ordered from them a week ago and got prompt service. I guess to us, if anything is an essential service, it is parts for our Model As! ;-)

Re: Parts from suppliers

Re: Wd-40

I saw that same test. We always used Liquid Wrench 40 years ago. When I saw this test, it made me reconsider.


I think we used WD-40 in my son's potato cannon.
