Re: Never rent your car to the studios

"Good movie if you have 3.5 hrs to spend, or do it in shifts. :)"

I saw it at the theatre in one sitting. The time went by quickly for me.


What amazed me is the number of old trucks they...

I had to scratch my head about that what. Looking under the hood he could detect a problem...

Re: Early 30 Pickup questions

Great project. Have fun with it. You are doing it for the best reasons. Nothing to add on what is right and what isn't.

Re: Air Filter

Here is one from Mac's. You can also get them on E-bay, I believe. I have one of each of my Model As.

Re: Never rent your car to the studios

I was in a filming last spring. I drove my car. We were up all night. Lots of reshooting. My car got a workout. Both the car and I got paid, but I had a good time participating.


Good cars...

Re: To the George Washington MARC club

Next Wednesday. It is our brown bag gift exchange. Bring something of interest to a car guy under $10. You will bring something home and have a good time. I won’t be there to introduce you, however.

Re: Pedal foot pressures

As long as you don't try to pick it up! ;-)

Seriously, if you want to give it a try, and who knows if this is even a valid test, but you could go to the gym where there is a leg press and set it...

They came to our Christmas party and were introduced to the group. They will get some help soon.

Re: Model A Registration Woes

Is the current title in his name? That should be okay if it does. You will probably need something to verify that his wife is the executor, unless her name is on the title, which I suspect it is...

Re: To the George Washington MARC club

Thanks, Leo. We provide assistance to members who need some help with their car. The holiday party is this Saturday, so I hope we will see them there. We look forward to helping them out.

Re: 1947 convertible

I wonder if the car had a modern coil at some point? That is the only reason i can think of for not having one, but maybe the PO took it out? That wouldn't explain to me why the voltage is 4.5 at...

Mine isn't running and hasn't run since around 1962. Hope to get it running before too long.

Re: 1947 convertible

No ballast resistor in the coil.

That 4.5 v should be enough to start the car as that is what the ballast resistor does-reduces the voltage. It should be fairly easy to find under the dash,...

Re: Slight mix up!

There is a lot of brand loyalty with us, but maybe there aren’t enough of us to make a Difference? I hear the Flex is a very nice car, but never sold that well.

Re: tesla Truck

Tubman, I will try my truck with a trailer. I looked at the specs in the owner’s manual and it seemed that I could tow a Model A. I guess as I get older I worry about safety a bit more than I once...

Re: tesla Truck

I think it is ugly, too. There will be competition, so let’s see what else comes out.

I have a stripper 2006 F-150 w/ a V6 and a 5 spd manual. I would like electric windows and mirror as it is...

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

No one is perfect, but it's too bad Beebe and HFII were not represented accurately.



I only know of Beebe from what is written here and he has a good story. HFII was also far from perfect,...

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

We are going to be tough critics. I did hear a positive review on the radio, but not by a car guy. Probably worth going to see regardless. A great story of larger than life characters: Enzo,...

Re: Tudor pronunciation

I have no facts to back this up, but like Fordor, I think Tudor was pronounced like two door. To use the British pronounciation would be too precious for Henry Ford. Edsel might have gone along,...
