Engine # being other than YOM is not uncommon. Doesn’t sound like your concerned with fine point judging. Would have to be pretty nice coupe to go for $19k if just a driver/fun car

Re: why are so many people fascinated by cars of the 1920s

Depends on what’s included… springs, base, condition?
Good ones with springs would be around $500 imho

Re: Fake, Phony, and False

If it doesn’t belong let Ryan delete it!!

Re: Please, everyone, Help us all out.......

I agree especially on swap meet section. If items are just too far, no use back and forth if shipping an issue.
Please add your location.

Re: ideas on a cheap wash tub?

I have a drum at the shop

Re: '31 Model A Roadster Top Wood
