Re: Reds Headers

After seeing your pics, I wouldn't use them. I've had many custom headers built over the last 50 years, and I wouldn't waste my time putting those on a car of mine if they were free.

Re: fordoor top question

Welcome to the barn dirtfarmer. I made bows for my fordor. Mine is a Briggs. The bows are more narrow in the front and get wider as you move towards the back.

The Real McCoys

I recently viewed a rerun of The Real McCoys and saw the '31 Pheaton (Cal. lic. number LBV 179) used in the series, and am wondering if anyone might know what became of the car?:confused:

Re: Model A vs. Flathead quandry

I have two A's and a '41 Fordor. The '41 has a factory two-speed rear end, and is a comfort to drive. It would be difficult to choose. Sort of like having to choose which child you would keep.

Re: Manufacturing Mistakes

After a career in Engineering, I'm of the opinion that if you want to see something get fouled up, get humans involved with it.

Re: What is your collector car Pet Peeve?

He obviously wasn't in the real world mentally, because he thought he was driving a car without a head on the engine. There is probably a good reason that he lives at the end of a ten mile dirt road.

Re: new model A owner, modification questions

As solid as the USS New Jersey, as fast as an FA-18 Hornet, and as invisible as a stealth fighter, with the tenacity of a Marine Corps Drill Instuctor. And try to make it look like a Model A.

Re: cooling system

Keep in mind that 80 degree water will show vapor on a cold day. Be certain that it is steam, and not just vapor.

Re: new flat head light aircraft engine

It seems as if Ferdinand Porsche's engine concept is alive and doing quite well.
