Re: opinions on 'lifts'

I have a Quick Jack, but Iíve never used it on my Model A. Iíve never figured a way to find usable jack points on the Model A.

Correct wiring harness

I bought my Victoria from him a couple of years ago, and he threw in a wiring harness. He is a fine man, and he does very good work.

Opinion on European Classic Tires

What did you end up buying? Who was the supplier? Were the tires in stock when you placed the order?

Re: Tech help with model A cabin space.

I agree that Model As are a tight fit. Believe it or not, my Miata has more room than my Model A.
