Re: Young model A Driver.

Congratulations to that young man. I know I felt the joy just watching the video, the kid must have been ten times more excited. Wish I could have had that opportunity at his age!

Re: Great Period Street Scene Filled with Cars and Interesting Sights

1939 New York video

Not model A related, but thought everyone might like to see New York City in COLOR during 1939. My favorite part was the street vendor selling pina colada's for 5 cents. Enjoy!

Re: Anyone ever taken a car to MAACO for a quick paint job

Look at all those cars in the video going through Earl Scheib's lot. I don't know if they were painted that fast, or if they were trying to get away from there as fast as possible!!
