Re: Will there be any model As left?

Kind of off subject in a way but as I watch the big fires on TV out West that they are having out there, I have to wonder 'How many old cars got burned up?"

Re: Garage lights

They are good, but a friend in his garage went overboard with the LED's overhead, and it hurts your eyes to be in there. I told him 'It's like staring at a welder' and he just laughed. He could have...

Re: First Time Tire Change

I tried using the tire spoons that the Model A Vendors sell, on a 16" Ford rim, that was old and dry rotted, and had a heck of a time.
