30 Years ago when I had my 30 Tudor, my Dad kept telling me I needed to get something more modern like a Mustang so I bought a 65 Mustang convertible pony interior that was in terrible shape. Spent...

Re: Our new shelf above the windshield in our 28 closed cab pickup

Good idea on the 12 volt outlet. I've been thinking about doing that. Should be pretty simple to install in a discrete place on the shelf.

Re: What gets inspected at your club's safety inspection?

I think this is a great event for a club and you should search youtube for Jack Bahm's video of Oakleaf's yearly safety check. Jack's also a member of this forum and may chime in.

Re: Interesting Comments about you Ride

It was a beautiful night tonight and we heard about a truck show which featured a bunch of lifted gigantic trucks. Thought it would be fun to bring our 28 pickup.

Re: Is this a Model A trailer hitch?

Unless you're pulling a dump trailer with the Model 'A', the heavy duty steel fabrication of this would be more than strong enough for whatever a Model A could pull. Whoever fabricated it did a...

Re: Is this a Model A trailer hitch?

Thanks JP I appreciate the response. I'll try to see if it fits one of those models. I wonder if anyone has seen something like this in use.

Re: Engine stand adapter question

Re: Turn Signals . . . Your Thoughts

Re: Model A starter clunk then no electrical
