Re: Brookville Roadster more valuable?

I agree with Steve on Keith's story... I have a pile of '36 Ford PU parts that were off of Pop's truck when he owned it, unfortunately in the 60's a cousin chopped it in two and made a farm trailer...

Re: Brookville Roadster more valuable?

I think that's called 'fraud' and the auctioneer here was putting himself in jeopardy by not announcing what this car truly was:eek:

Re: Pothole, now right only!?!

I was thinking that very same thing, somebody did a band aid repair and didn't fix the problem.

Re: Lebaron Bonney

Bob, as it looks as though they are filing for bankruptcy, I pity the guys that put money down for orders and such. They are going to be SOL.

No $$ returned. No product delivered.

Re: Ammeter reading charge

I never got good readings with a digital voltmeter on a Model A Ford. It bounces all over the place.

Try an analog meter for accurate results.

Re: Barrett-Jackson

I firmly agree. Militaria and military weapons I think will always have people drawn to them. The direct link to history. Good Civil War stuff has been a tough nut to crack for as long as I can...

Re: Barrett-Jackson

B-J, American Pickers, and other 'reality' TV shows have done a lot to hurt this hobby. More harm than any possible good.

They have taken a lot of the fun out of this hobby. For reasons stated,...

Truer words never spoken. Only the people hawking high dollar cars to increase the sold price for their own commission speak as though these things are 'investments' for the future. If that was...

Re: Worn out 31 roadster value?

All I know for sure is that today, $3K or even $5K doesn't get you too far into a collectible or antique car of course depending on body style, etc.

Re: Worn out 31 roadster value?

Good advice and wow, $$ talks. The rodders will pay really good money for a '30-'31 Roadster. These cars seem to always have a demand for them. Cheaper than a good '32 Ford and basically they are the...

Re: A Chinese radiator in a Model A?!!!
