Re: Earthquake

There was a quake in VA a few years ago that we felt pretty good in Northern MD. It was strong enough to cause minor damage. I was working on scaffolding at the time and it was shaking in itself, so...

Re: When is a "Model A" no longer a "Model A"

I like how they put the Ford emblem right above the VW motor! I have to admit, one of the more unique Model A's I have seen.

I saw one at the Rennigers show a few years ago that had the motor...

Re: How is it.........

[B]
Even up to recently. I started driving in 1980, and even then once a new car got to 50k it was traded. I think the life of a car then was about 100k, now 100k and theyre just getting broken in!

Re: When is a "Model A" no longer a "Model A"

If the car was built as a Model A, then it is a Model A. Regardless of changes over the years. Now the debate over what is 'original', 'unrestored', 'factory correct', 'like new', can go on and on...

Re: Model A Day at Gilmore Cancelled!!!

Dont want to start a mask debate, but I was under the impression that the n95 was about the safest mask to use. The n95 with a valve is NOT recommended, as it expells ones breath which could...

Re: Anyone Ever Built or Even Seen, An Original type Greasing Pit?

There was an old timer that had one in his welding shop. Only one I ever saw working. I always thought they were dangerous for a lot of the above reasons.

Re: Devastating Blow

That is such a shame. With so many Amish buggies in the area it seems that people driving should be able to negotiate a slower moving vehicle a bit safer!

I wouldnt think that decision would have been hard at all. As far as when I will go out, good question. All shows in my area have been cancelled. There is one car cruise afternoon that is going and I...

Re: Which Car-Like Vehicles Can Tow a Model A?

Better yet, so many think a $80k plus F250 with high rise suspension is needed to get groceries,

Re: Removing the entire side of a 30 coupe - 1 piece?

Might be a dumb question, but if you are using the 2 bodies shown, why not just do a body swap instead of a conversion?
