Re: Model A car names

Never did give my A a name, just called it the "A". But from this day forward she will be named after Henry's Wife."Clara" After all she was Henry's Lady.

Re: Donít Laugh, cam nut removal

Re: Australia Fires

In tonight's news, another firefighter dies and a total of 2130 homes destroyed. It's not over by a long shot.

Re: Bill Williamson?

Bill has many mates here on the Barn but I suspect none more special than Dawg. Must have been a very hard decision to let him go. Trust Daug is with good Carers and Bill gets to see him every now...

Re: Post Model A Picture

Like others have said, it's a beautiful colour and a very nice car. Do I dare mention the whitewall tyres. They look stunning with the body colours.
Now stop sitting around reading the ford barn...

Re: B model distributor question

This youtube video explains it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaX1-1igeWM
You can ignore the vacuum advance portion of the video as it does not apply to the Model A

Re: Melbourne Cup

I decided to double my money this year, so I took a fifty dollar note out of my wallet then I folded in two and put it back in my pocket. Guaranteed winner. I know that's not very Australian but I...

Re: What revs at 60MPH

Forget your speedo, forget your rev counter. Just drive at your comfortable speed. Listen to your car, it will tell you what your comfortable speed is. Enjoy your ride.

Re: Patina makes this too good to restore?

Put it on display next to a high points restoration and I think I know which one will receive the most attention.
Preserve it like it is and drive and enjoy it. You won't have to freak out when some...

Re: Biggest scare in a Model A

I lost my left front wheel while doing 45mph. I survived the wild ride, unhurt but badly shaken. My wife often asks me now (have you checked your nuts lately)

Re: What have you found working on your A?

El Cheepo front end fix. What appears to be a copper Mexican 5 cent coin used to tighten a loose steering.

Re: Trailering tips for protection

If at all possible I would drive it which...

Re: How Far In One Day?

Don, you're a better man than I am. You beat me by 200km. My best was 610km but I wouldn't do it again. My preferred distance is 340/350km. Take my time to smell the Rose's.

Re: How Many Model A Owners also Own a T?

Yes, we own a 1927 Roadster. The first car I restored. I refer to it as my divorce car. If I want a divorce all I have to do is sell it, and my wife will divorce me. We have lots of good memories...

Re: Turn Signals . . . Your Thoughts

I would rather walk over a fire pit with bare feet than drive a vehicle without turn indicators. I fit motor cycle indicators on the bumper brackets. The bigger and brighter the lights the better. (I...
