Re: Patina makes this too good to restore?

Picked up our van after all four tires were replaced. All four tires had the stickers on them. Never went back.

A stabilizer is a band aid on a much needed problem that should not be overlooked.

Re: How to check a Model B Cam?

Center cam bearing wear minimum is kind of moot. There is a max clearance however if you measure the wear in the block even a cam with standard bearings can exceed limits.

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

Yes I am hung up on the term Restoration especially when advertised as a “total” restoration. For that kind of money the car should be correct.

Re: Model A's and Woodstock...

Spent the time in the Jungles of Vietnam. Never heard about it until I returned to the states. I did however buy a 30 Tudor that was waiting for me when I got out.
