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: 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
