Re: Model A Ford Trunk for my Victoria

I wonder what happened to the Victoria that had the trunk molded into the rear panel of the car. If you opened the trunk you could access the storage space behind the rear seat. It was very neatly...

Re: Shock Absorber Fluid Replacement

Robert Paul restored my shocks, as well. Once, in a rare telephone call (he was hard to get a hold of), he told me not to mix oil with glycerin. Also he said you could not get all the oil out of the...

Re: Solution for audio system in model A?

Buy a decent Bluetooth speaker. Rechargeable ones cost from $50-$250. The $50 one works great. The one we got at Best Buy hangs nicely from the dash rail by an integral rubber strap. It works great...

Re: HELP: 30 Station Wagon Owners

RAS,
Your corner iron looks to be a piece of angle iron. Henry's version is a bit more elegant. It has a bulge at the bottom corner that tapers up. Also, the corners at the top should be rounded...

Re: MARC Meeting in Gettysburg

Holdover,
National meets cost a lot to attend. With a slot in a host hotel and all the fees, food, and registrations, you can rack up a $1,500 + tab. Most attendees are there for the event, not...

Re: Starter accessory

I installed the SparkyStart version on our '30 Woody so my wife would not try to start the car with the spark advanced. It works like a charm. However, she still needs to pull the spark advance...

Re: Trunk Question

Your trunk is like the ome on our Roadster. It is vinyl over galvanized steel. I like it because it is a little lighter than the plywood version, although it costs more. Get a new one like yours at...

Re: 31 Model A SW Town Sedan Project -Roof wood header

One of the early Restorer Magazines -- 1966 maybe -- had a drawing included. I think the issue had a drawing of a Victoria. That's as far as my total recall (which has been recalled) goes.

Re: Snap On versus Craftsman

Re: odd tire question

Take a tip from the father on the movie, Big Fat Greek Wedding. Use Windex. It will clean the bugs off your windshield AND help your tires' beads to seat on the rims.
