He gave me a warning and said he had no way of testing to see if it met minimal standards. I think he just needed a reason to pull me over to have a look at the car.

Re: What size socket set

Buy a set of Imperial measure not metric box / open end wrenches and then forget about the A breaking down. If you are obssessed with it breaking down better to sell it and take a bus !

Re: 600-16 tires where to buy Model A

I have indeed had good luck from Coker and Lucas. In my opinion you get what you pay for. Be prepared to deal with the downside because price is not everything !

Re: How much is my A motor worth

A contract between friends and neighbors for a 200 dollar engine is an insult ! A car or a house is fine but lets not get overly efficious ! It borders on being ridiculous !

Re: How much is my A motor worth

Paint is cheap and adds very little value. If you don't know the inside be happy with 250 to $ 300 dollars !
