Re: Where Do Parts Come From

Kube and flatheadmurre are right on the money. You spec, pay and QA a good part, you get a good part. If you don't, you don't.

Another factor may be quantity produced. If you are making...

Re: Membership dropping, interest too???

I got back into Model As a few years ago around age 60 because I finally had time, a garage and a little extra money. It has been great, but I have gone a little crazy, buying a second Model A, two...

Re: MARC ballot and Constitution change

Getting feedback is good. Maybe they should have had a two-step process: draft the changes and put them to the membership for comment. I don't see how the board can invalidate a no vote.

Re: Hershey

My buddy was selling an early Model A two Venturi Zenith carb. He was asking $200. A guy wanted it for less. My buddy told him to go to another space and see what they were asking? $400. He came back...

Re: bonus built

I have a 45 and it has semi elliptical springs, so the 42 -47 trucks had a more modern suspension than the cars. I have wondered how the engineers got that past Henry, who was wedded to buggy...

Re: Garage Find Model T Long Story

Engine number is an early 24 (April). It has 21" wheels and what someone told me is a 25 tail light.

I am very excited about it. It needs some wood and rust repair and who knows about the...

Re: Like picking at a scab: let's discuss 'oil'

This has been discussed so many times it would be best to do a search and see how this has been flogged in the past. You will find every opinion possible out there, although I have never seen one...

Re: Thoughts on Hershey

I wouldn't miss it. I was only there for Friday afternoon and the show on Saturday. I bought two items from guys in my Model A club, so didn't need to go there for that and a radiator cap for my...

Re: looking for someone that can rebuild mag rings

At Hershey, I got a card for Tim and Ed Lucius, 9368 W. Co. Rd. 10, New Riegel, OH 44853. 419-595-2310 bdlucius@att.net I cannot vouch for them. They were recommended by Dave's Restoration &...

He was keeping good company, that's for sure. I was only there on Friday afternoon and Saturday. Sorry I missed seeing you guys.

I did get to see Jay Leno on Saturday at the car show. We were...

Re: One thing I've learned as a new A owner....

I know I am prejudiced, but I think the Model A was one of the best cars ever made. Cheap, simple, durable and reliable.

Re: weather at Hershey

I am going up on Friday and will stay until Saturday. Hopefully the rain on Sat won't be too bad. It will cool off significantly, though.

Re: Omg not sears

They have been going downhill for a while, as others have said. A shadow of the former company. As someone else wrote, Sears was Amazon before there was Amazon. Their management should have been...

Re: Model A cross-country migration

Just to add to what Redbird said, check all the tires. Many antique cars have very old tires.

I was amused by a recent story in the one of the club magazines. A guy took a long trip in his...

Re: pay-pal = rip off

I use Venmo all the time, but it is owned by PayPal. Some banks have their own services. There is a limit to the amount some of these services can transfer. Venmo is one of them.

The one on the bottom of the top photo looks like the one in the patent application.

I have seen them before, but I don't have any. This may prompt me to look for one.

Not the same, but I have...

Re: Kudos....

Shipping is a bugaboo. It ain't cheap and it's hard to figure out what the cost is? Maybe Carpenter's loses money on some and makes some on others, so it all works out. Some places figures out the...

Re: ebay = rip off

I sell a lot of stuff on Ebay and sell things I would never get rid of otherwise. They do nickel and dime you, but that is free enterprise. I wish they didn't charge you on the shipping fee, too,...
