Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Even though I don’t understand most of everything of what is written, it is very exciting to see this coming together. I know I will need at least one motor. Can’t wait. Thanks Terry.

Re: Nightmare Engine Rebuild

This is why I am always contemplating going with a modern motor in my model A's instead of getting the original motors rebuilt. Or may be wait till Tod gets his new model A motors done.

Re: upholstery and windshield questions

I ordered a classtique kit for my 1930 deluxe roadster, it is a numbers matching car and was very original. I myself would not order another one from them as the fit was not to my liking.
