Re: Your most useless NOS parts

Ronn, I totally agree with you that NOS spark plugs are beautiful. I can't explain it. They just are.

The most useless NOS part that I used to have was a 1928 running board splash apron. I was so...

Hey Glen,

Re: 1929 Dealer Supplement

Great to listen to you two talk about those '29 CPD Phaetons. It brings back memories for me but not in regards to Model A's. Late '69 and the first half of '70 I lived at 3349 S. Wabash while I went...

Re: Posting this for a chuckle, unless you're grumpy, in which case you may hate it

I thought that it was a misprint but then looked at the other items for sale. It includes a used pipe wrench for $49!

Just wonder what they would try to sell a complete Model A for? Perhaps I can...

Re: Original Owner

Thanks Neil. That is a great story.

Now since that Model A had over 400,000 miles on it, I presume the engine had probably been replaced a few times during its life...and the 3 restorations. Which...

Re: st"A"rt in 46 seconds

Thanks, Stoney. Really enjoyed the video.

For me the glass is well over half full and what a great sounding engine.

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

Seems to me that the title should stay with the chassis/body. Otherwise every time an engine is swapped out you would need to retitle the vehicle.

Re: U-haul open trailer

Bill Lee, you are wiser than me. I didn't consider the ballooning of the roof fabric when I open trailered a Leatherback home some years ago. The top not only ballooned but the back seam ripped open.

Re: Restoration in India

It is amazing what they did with that car. I love the before and after photos. It was also pretty cool that he used the phaeton model to get an idea for the final paint color.

Heck, I've parted...

Re: Hershey cancelled

Though I understand the rationale behind it, I am crushed. I really love going to Hershey. Realizing that I will have to wait almost a year and a half until the next one is a tough pill to swallow.

Re: Killin time with Covid 19 and JC Whitney

When I got my first Model A in 1966, I ordered parts from Warshawsky. I eventually got a JC Whitney catalog but felt a loyalty to Warshawsky. At first I thought that they might be the same company.

Re: Attempt to remove body bolts, or just cut them off?

I like to use a breaker bar or an impact wrench. Usually the bolt snaps and all is fine. I find that when I use a grinder for such things the grinder wanders and mars surrounding surfaces. If you use...

Vern, your question is: 'Would you expect to see this cut out on a car which came down the line in either late ‘28 or early ‘29?". The answer, I believe, is that you wouldn't expect it but it is...

Re: Can I run my A on White Lightning Moonshine?

In the mid 70''s I went to a workshop about running a modern engine on alcohol. The three takeaways were:
1. the carburetor jets must be larger.
2. run the gas line in a way to "preheat" the...
