Re: 10 years a roadster!

Hey Jack,

A flathead V-8 in a Model A, sounds like you were a "hot Rodder" in your day. When did you get "religion" and start working on 4 bangers?

Re: Will I fit in a Roadster??

Jeff,

You're right about the movies. The only two I can think of are comedians, Oliver Hardy and Fatty Arbuckle!

Re: tell a Model A related story

Jim,

Speaking of having to recharge the A/C every summer, my 2004 Toyota Highlander has the same problem; otherwise, it's been a great car and just now going over 300K miles.

Re: instrument panel lighjt

Thanks, Sychro and Carl. Yes, it gets hot with the regular bulb. I agree about replacing the bulb with an LED.

Re: instrument panel lighjt

Since you only need it at night, could it be wired into the headlight circuit so it would only go on when you turn on the headlights?

I might agree with you guys but that trip from my house to Lake Forest requires traveling on Highway 91 which is congested 24/7, a real bumper-to-bumper nightmare!

Re: Odd VIN

In this case, it seems to me that it is the dealer's responsibility to straighten out the title.

That is one of the reasons I wanted to buy a car with a clear California title and a current...

Re: What modern points do you use?

Pete,

You said "With a properly modified base plate . . ." Do you mean a modified "original" plate or a modified "modern" plate?

Re: Will I fit in a Roadster??

I have a 29 Roadster with a standard seat. I'm 5' 8" and 170 lbs. and it's a tight fit getting in and out of it, especially with the top up. The door is narrow and it's a tight squeeze between the...

Re: Charging a dead battery

Synchro909,

Yes, my wife wants me to trade it in so she can buy a new Lexus. Should have done it before It reached a 100K miles. Would have saved me a lot of money.

Re: Charging a dead battery

rune,

I charged it at 2 amps for two days and the electrolyte did not rise nor did it spill out. I'll check the battery with a multimeter to see if has held a charge.

I don't have a battery...

I forgot to mention that the charger has a setting "75 amps 12/6 volts START" to start the car. I tried that first but the starter didn't turn over so I took the battery out of the car.

Re: Charging a dead battery

Good advice Mike. I'll get a new battery and a new coil as well. It's the same battery that came with the car so I'm sure it's bad.
