Building a high horsepower, reliable Model A engine is equal to the price of at least three SBC crate engines.

Re: How Many Model A's are left ?

Every time this question pops up, I make the suggestion that MARC and MAFCA do a joint project and poll the insurance companies, state DMV’s and museums.

Re: NC? Request for Antique Vehicle exam

Re: Frame serial number to obtain a title?

Many states do not recognize Broadway Title as a legitimate source. Check before you spend any money.

Re: Head value

Re: 3.27 ring and pinion, anyone using one ?

I put a 3:27 in my roadster with a strong engine and found it wanting. Went back to a 3:54 and very satisfied with the performance. Too, I live in an area with 10,000’ passes.

Re: Towing a Model A

Re: stainless steel cleaner & polish

As the owner of a stainless steel Delorean, the best stuff is Sheila Shine that is carried by restaurant supply companies. No comparison to those listed above.
