Re: Dave Lopes Fordor Model A

Nice thread. Thanks to all who added to the story.

I had to chuckle when I saw the interior door photo with the sagging door pocket. I was at a local show and the guy who was judging my car...

Re: Bubbas Orders gettin it done..........

Re: Voltage Regulator:

I agree. I would find a NOS one. There are lots around. I bought a bunch at Hershey a couple of years ago. PM me if you want to buy one of mine.

Re: Bring a Trailer

Hard to know? There are younger people getting into the hobby, but not many.

When I was a teen in the mid 1960's, guys were into Tri-5s and the new muscle cars of the day. I always liked Model...

Re: My first Model T

Congrats. I rescued a Model T from a garage last fall. I can't wait to get started in it in earnest.

Re: Map software

I heard a talk by some folks who took a cross country trip in a Model T and used the bicycle route map for their trip. An interesting idea, but that can identify roads that are not for motor...

Re: It ran when parked ..... at the bottom of the lake

I have some pics of an AA on the bottom of a lake in Maine.

People driving on the ice too late in the year can result in a vehicle on the bottom.

Re: Greyhound shipping advice offered

When I tried to schedule Fastenal, the web site said no space available. Maybe I should have called them.

Re: Securing the exhaust better

It's my view that the original arrangement works well when you have the proper flange on the pipe where it meets the exhaust manifold. Sometimes the manifolds droop toward the end due to the heat of...

Re: STP and Transmission: any negative experience ?

I use the tranny oil from Bratton's.

FWIW, last weekend on a drive to a cars and coffee, I was crashing gears like crazy. Once it warmed up, I was fine. It was not really cold, just cool and I...

Re: Drum Tail light brightness

LEDs are good. You can also paint the inside of the tail light housing white. That helps a lot, too.

Re: Model A's in movie

I have seen some contemporary photos with pretty beat up cars in them that are only a few years old. Also, they get cars on site from folks like us. I suspect that is a lot of trouble for them....

Re: Jumping in - (hope I'm ready)

I had a 54 F250. A great truck. If you get it nicely restored your wife might like it? Not sure you are going to go that route.
