Re: London to Brighton again

Enjoyed the video ... and the music. We lived outside of Brighton for four years. Made that run myself, many times, but not in a model A. You would be surprised how easy it is to adapt to driving...

Re: Trexlertown, Pa. Swap & Show

Being a newbie to the world of model A's, I can't begin to express the thrill of attending yesterday's meet in Trexlertown. Having never seen more than one car at a time (while looking to buy mine)...

Re: Model A Meet, Trexlertown, PA. 4/22/18

This will be my first Model A Show/Meet. Really looking forward to it. As a new owner,
I've got a lot of questions for some of the old timers. Can't wait.

Re: Now why the heck couldn't they get it right?

I'm a bit of a maritime history buff and I watch all the documentaries on the subject that I can find.

The producers of these shows are the worst offenders of all. You guys think the car shows...

Re: 1929 Tudor 'Barner' count....

I'm new to model A's ... bought my '29 Tudor this past November. Completely restored but not by me, of course. Pretty much laid up for the winter. Can't wait for Spring.

Re: 29 A Battery Cables

I'm in the process of installing a battery disconnect switch on my 29 Tudor. I sat and read every post on the subject by using the search. At first, the many varying opinions made it seem like...

Re: Old Car Collectors Aren't Dead Yet!

I agree with the article ... to a point. I'm 81 and just found the hobby. A year ago

Perhaps I'm naive and I'm...

Re: Newbie needs help ...

Thanks, JDupuis ... Just checked. No lights, no amp discharge from brake pedal.

Re: Newbie Question - Shifting suddenly difficult !
