We tied tin cans on the car and drove it around the church parking lot, for the effect and photos, then removed them for driving on the city streets.

Re: Gas Gauge Calibration

To answer the second part of #3, most model A's get something like 18-20 miles per gallon. A little less if only in-town stop and go driving.

Re: 1930 Ford Model A 4Dr (Inherited Don't Know Much - HELP)

As it is not very well cleaned, inside and out, I would say that it is more of a $10-12,000. car. If we knew it runs and stops, I could see a little bit more. Yes, it is a blindback sedan. The...

Re: Oil pan bolts

I too, use the 1/4 inch socket. For all the tighter it needs to be, the 1/4 inch is plenty.
