Re: The great American race

Yea, I know there are some 'independents' that run, but for the most part it has come down to how deep are ones pockets. The year they started in Atlantic City had a day one lunch stop about 10 miles...

Re: Quick Jack Car Lift

This, if you have room for one. The good thing about the quick jacks is their portability. Unfortunately I am still in the market for some kind of a lift but I have found that a decent 4 post (which...

Re: The great American race

Re: Hershey chatter

I have no problem with scooters, carts, etc, or even dogs. I would prefer they hang their empty from a string for warning though.

Re: Hershey chatter

I was ever so slightly side swiped by a scooter from behind whilst avoiding one coming head on. Neither had anything 'dangling' and were silent. The one coming at me had no regard for where I was...

Re: Working in the garage

Re: Trailering tips for protection

Unless your car is concours quality, I dont think I would consider putting a cover on it, and if it was an enclosed trailer would be a must. Like was mentioned, a flapping tarp will damage the paint...

Re: Hershey Weather forecast

Seems a bit far out to predict, record temps in the area today, supposed to be low 90's, but then cooling off tomorrow. I always go on Fridays, doesn't seem to me that anyone is leaving then! Late...

Re: Model A prices...going which way?

I have been looking at 'A' prices for the last several years. I think that they have been pretty steady for the last 5 or 6 (yrs) or so. I mostly follow hemmings so there really is no price diff....

Re: What does "All STeel" mean?

Re: Restored Nebraska Model "A" Is junk

I dont think its that easy in MD. Example: I buy a used car, I need to title it in my name. In order to do so, I need to present the current title (along with a bill of sale) with the back signed in...
