Re: Buying an out of state car on the internet

NEVER buy a car you haven't actually put your hands on. I have been burned twice by doing that. They always look better in photos than they do in person. Heck, I even saw a coupe at a swap meet just...

Re: Not showing our cars anymore?

I am retired and on fixed income. I have already invested thousands of dollars in a car and can no longer afford to shell out $20 or more to enter into a show so that someone else who gets in free...

Re: Is this a correct horn for my 1923 model T?

It looks like one that I bought which turned out to be a 12 volt horn.

Re: Charlotte Autofair

I haven't seen a "looker" at a swap meet or car show since the 80s. Nowadays they are like me....old, ugly and fat.☺

Early 1928 Model A roadster pickup

I hate to do it but I think I need to sell my 28 roadster pickup. I haven't driven it in 3 years and its just collecting dust in the garage. Its a solid car that ran good when I last drove it. It...

Re: Pictures of my dash Hydro dipped in woodgrain

As an aside note, can someone tell me which cars were given the woodgrain treatment from the factory? I have never seen an original with it.

Re: Question about spraying clear lacquer

Thanks. I mixed it 2:1 but I may try a batch with more thinner to see if I get a better flow. The black I sprayed did flow better, perhaps the clear was a thicker paint initially.

Question about spraying clear lacquer

I started to spray some clear lacquer on one of my trucks today with my conventional HLVP sprayer and the paint started coming out like tiny confetti or cobwebs. It sprayed OK last month using the...

Re: The color and the shape!! Body styles and color photo thread!!

Here is my early 28 open cab pickup. I bought it like this from a deceased person's family. Not sure what shade of green it is or even if its an original color. Looks like an original shade to me....

Re: Crime committed on the bay...............

I don't think thats a converted coupe. Looks like someone converted a 4 door sedan to me. The quarter window looks "off" to be a coupe window.

Re: Frame number question

Just how often does anyone run into a "knowledgeable" DMV inspector? They usually have a hard time finding anything but the coffee pot.

Re: Macs closing

I guess they weren't making enough money charging more for shipping than for the parts.

Re: Southern cars

I don't see that. Seems to me like all the found old cars are in far off areas of the country from me. Maybe its just perspective, like the grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence.

Re: USPS warning..................

One other thing to remember if you ship by USPS. They have what is called contract stations which are located in drug stores, shopping centers, etc. These are not run by the Postal Service and they...

Perhaps he is not an English speaker as a first language? Grammar is hard to figure out too.

Re: It seems to always come when the regular postman has a day off.

Well, wouldn't the smart thing to do would be to get a mailbox that is big enough to put your mail in without folding it? The mail carrier doesn't like folding it any more than you do.

Re: An Irish ghost story

Hey! I'm Irish, and I resemble that remark..
Irish people are proud of their reputation for imbibing in the strong spirits.
Good story, I enjoyed it.

Re: tried to buy this on Saturday.........

Sorry, but your response to his ad sounded like a scammer to me too. Anyone who wants to buy a car sight unseen and uses email is doing exactly what scammers do.

Re: Current values of Modal A's

These are my opinions: These Model As are the Hondas of the 20s-30s. They were a cheap car and they made a million of them. They are not that rare so that a coupe made in high volume would bring 20K...
