Re: Bill Williamson

Robert Paul “Mr Shock” goes west

I just received a call from Mr Paul’s brother informing me of the sad news that Robert Paul has passed.

Re: Wireless Turn Signals

I don’t think those are currently in production. Website has been the same for 2 or 3 years.

Re: Model A driving old US395 in winter

My experience with US395 is mostly in summer and fall - I can recall only one time driving in the winter, and it was a fairly benign day, fortunately. I'm not a skier, but used to camp and fly fish...

Re: Model A driving old US395 in winter

I've driven that highway many times over the last 45 years, vacationing in the northern part of CA and in NV and OR. Beautiful drive now, but I can't help thinking that we are missing quite a bit as...

Re: Model A Amature Radio Operators

Haven't done mobile for a long time. Had a modified Marconi taxi radio (tube) as first 2m FM rig, which supplanted my Heath Twoer on 2m AM. Nowadays I use a KX3 for HF but lately haven't been doing...

Re: Just wondering : what's your year of birth ?

It's surprising, but also really refreshing and encouraging to see a lot of younger folks in this hobby. I thought everyone was my age (67) or older. We need young blood, because otherwise who's...

Re: Just wondering : what's your year of birth ?

June 1949. Pretty much average in most ways, I guess.

Re: what am I doing wrong?

It did it again to me, and I haven't erased my history. I'm becoming suspicious that there's something goofy going on with iOS Safari. I might try a different browser, Chrome or Firefox.

Re: Car cover

I use a car bubble. Zips together top to bottom and inflates with a small fan. No mice, no pollen, no dirt. Protects from most bad stuff. About the same cost as a quality car cover.

Re: Can Mice Really Get Into A Sedan or Coupe?

My coupe is happily in its inflated plastic bubble, so no mice in the model A. My '41 Hudson isn't so fortunate - no bubble - so it's protected by a combination of TomCat pellets all around the area...

Re: Wouldn't start - popout switch strikes again!

It was not an original part - it was a rebuilt original. Only a year old. I installed it in place of the crappy one that was there when I got the car, because I wanted an original look. My bad.
