Re: Air conditioning in a open car

LOL. My wife has a mustang convertible and we drive it all the time in the summer with the top down and a/c on. It does help keep the temp down a bit. I guess on a big open car it would at least keep...

Re: Hershey restaurants

Firstly, those are not crab cakes. They are more like filler cakes and not worth the money. There is Iron Hill Brewery in Hershey. I have not been to that location but have been to the original in DE...

Re: Model a Coupe Roll up rear window

Interesting. I thought that was standard on all coupes. At least it seems all of the ones I have ever seen have had them.

Rumble Seat Windshield

I recently read an article about aftermarket 'wind shields' that were available in the day for phaetons and rumble seat cars. It was interesting and made perfect sense. I have seen many 'high end'...

Re: Best Model A flea markets in the country

I go to Carlisle and Hershey. Not really a comparison. I have late model cars so Carlisle is a good place to hunt things down for that era. You will find early stuff there, just not as much. Hershey...

Re: Best Model A flea markets in the country

MARC always has a good presence at Hershey, and there seems to be a lot of A and T parts there.

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

Re: This Drives me Crazy!!

That's ok for a quick fix, but problems arise if one ever decides to sell the vehicle. Same for the states that dont require titles. It creates big problems for us slobs that live in states that...

Re: A Matter of $$

If it is simply a matter of money, buy a car already restored.

Re: Road trip - past two non model A trucks

First truck is an F100 unibody, 1963. I dont think they made them in 65/66 ( Ford had a few of them that were "lightweight" racers for the drag strip). Chevy looks like maybe 53 or 54. Hard for me to...

Re: Equipment to polish car paint

Griots is really good stuff, I have one of their dual action polishers and it works great with the right products. If you need to get more than that out of it then you need to go the buffing compound...

Re: Toyota chassis

This reminds me of "The Absent Minded Professor", whom had a 'flubber' powered Model T, he put a sound shaker so people wouldn't know the difference. LOL

Re: hidden radio ideas or just slighty out of sight. wood hide door?

This sounds like a bit of work to make a 'boom box'. If youre thinking of an all in one unit that can be portable. Just get a ready made player. If you can find a place to install some speakers...

Re: Firewall vs Dash

There was a bit written about this in a past issue of old cars maybe. There explanation I believe was that it is technically a 'dash board', which was a carryover from the buggy days. The front panel...

Re: Toyota chassis

Its one thing to transplant the motor, if it fits then that would be ok, I suppose. But im not sure I would want to do a complete chassis swap (synchro- in this case im sure it would be pretty easy,...

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

Re: Pinstriping

I am sure. At some point one needs to dip the brush back into the can of paint, creating a 'cold' joint. I can see where that would be problematic.
