Re: A Lazy Sunday Drive in a Model A

I love it! Great videography. As good as your trip to the market. I like that you did this one in colour.

Re: Car cover question

I would recommend California Car Cover as well. I have one and love it. I got the middle of the road version ( 70's car, it was under $300). Fit is perfect, and the material seems to be top quality....

Re: Paint recommendations

Are you painting the car yourself? You should find a local paint supplier and check out their supply. If you are satisfied go with them. That way you will have everything local when needed and some...

Re: The national Museum of the US Army

The subs in Groton are very interesting as well. I couldnt believe how cramped they were!
I saw a bumper sticker one time in the Norfolk area that I thought was pretty funny.

'There are 2 types...

Re: The national Museum of the US Army

Interesting. I think I read the museum exhibits themselves were moved to Kansas City, it must be the WWI museum referred to. I know they had quite a collection. I know they had a vehicle used by...

Re: The national Museum of the US Army

Looks interesting and close to the Marine Corps Museum.
There was a great museum years ago at Aberdeen Proving Ground. I believe they closed it down and moved everything to the Kansas area. I wonder...

Re: Dying your door panels etc ?

Again with a more 'modern car', if you are changing/correcting the colour of vinyl I highly recommend SEM products. I have been using them for years with great success.

Re: Andy Hardy Movies

I love all of the Andy Hardy movies. He also had an A roadster that had stripes painted all over it. I always thought it would be cool to have one made just like it! There was an episode when he...

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

I read an article maybe in old cars awhile ago that showed the figures for Ford vs Chevy sales numbers. Almost every year after the model T, Chevy bested Ford. Every few years Ford had the upper hand...

Re: Those were the days....

I have no knowledge on the said kit but it does sound a bit outrageous for the sum of its parts. To the OP's original question, that same fabric is still probably WORTH $15-$20 a yard! I wouldnt have...

Re: Near Dover Delaware

I am about 45 minutes from there, but honestly I am not in the PI business. My wife does know one that they use for their work. I can have her check but in all likelyhood he will charge a fee....

Re: Carlisle

Will N, exactly. I consider 'privately owned' something that is not owned by the government. There may be a holding company, investors, stock holders and a board of directors, but ultimately it is...

Re: Carlisle

Not necesarily, they need to follow the state's guidelines and I would imagine at some level Hershey is privately owned as well. Having said that.....

I had a friend that went to Carlisle GM this...

Re: Garage lights

A 4ft LED fixture is pretty cheap. I bought a 10 pack and they ended up costing $14. per light. Much easier taking an old light down and putting up a new one. Nothing needed re-wired. I saw some 4ft...

Re: classic auto mall

If you are going on a pleasure trip a bit further north of Allentown is Pottsville, there is an antique car museum there as well as the Yuengling Brewery. I dont drink but if you partake I understand...

Re: classic auto mall

Morgantown is south of Allentown but considering the size of PA it is very close. You will most likely pass it on your way there or back. I would say maybe 45 minutes away. It is located right off of...

Re: classic auto mall

Classic Auto Mall is in Morgantown PA, between Lancaster and Philly, right off of the turnpike. The building was a large shopping mall in the 80's, turned into a very large classic car sales...

Re: MHS Students Model A

I like the way your school thinks (restoring an old car). This may turn into a multi year project though, it may take a while to find a car to restore. If youre set on a model A I would put feelers...
