Re: speedster


Sold my T speedster not too long ago. Was a gas to drive but impractical for me.

Re: Buffing out orange peel.

I knew a Guy who paid EXTRA, to get the "modern" ORANGE PEEL look on a Caddy!

I don't understand the crappy paint jobs modern cars receive. You'd think for the price of a new car...

Re: Buffing out orange peel.

Re: OT: It's the simple things that often bring a smile to our face....

Neat video. We still have the old buzz saw, and belt, that was mounted on the front of our IH A tractor. Dad and I cut many hedge posts into firewood. The tractor is long gone and have never...

Re: My what hearty souls . . . .

Looks to be a dusting of snow here in SE Ks. Could use a good freeze, the pastures are slop and cattle miserable.

Upon second look, it's all sleet and still coming down.

Re: Not much demand for Model As at any price or is it antique cars in general?

I'll second your opinion. My wife and I live in the country, have more than enough money, but spend most of our hours working. Our A coupe and T speedster seldom see the road when compared to our...

Re: Prices of model A's

I checked some of the bigger cities CL sites here in fly over country and have found very few if any stock Model A's for sale, just hot rod/hot rod projects. Think it goes in cycles.

Re: Is my fan OK?

I changed to an aluminum 2 blade fan when I couldn't figure out why my engine, with 4 blade, would seem to vibrate more at higher rpm. Problem solved.
