Re: Brattons new reflectors?

John I THINK the originals were brass and the popular replacements used in the 60's-'70's were steel. If I'm right you can check by using a magnet.

Re: Anyone have any used tires for sale

.... or Bedford-Allstate-Garfield nylon tires (all the same tire) with the ugly zig-zag tread pattern. They don't seem to wear out fast enough.

Re: Would you restore a Model A today or not?

Good question. For a simple 'yes' or 'no' as you indicated I would have to lean towards 'no'. Not that I like the cars any less that's not it. It's a matter of money.

Hard to justify putting $65K...

Re: 41 starter issues

Had the same thing Walt described about foreign junk parts. Starter rebuilt by a shop that was SUPPOSED to be good. They did a lousy job. Worked all of maybe seven or eight times.

Re: tough question: does the '29 roadster rattle a lot?

We have had a '28 Roadster, and a '30 Dlx. Roadster both professionally restored cars.

Definitely a difference. The '30 Dlx is not only quieter but it rides and drives like night and day compared...

Re: Insurance?

Have both Grundy and Haggerty. Both good. Not really much difference. Grundy was ten bucks a year cheaper on the Model A than Haggerty, not enough difference to fret over. And yes, state by state...

Re: Dec. 7th comming up. who can remember ???

My concern also. This is just the beginning of bigger things to come. Not good.

Re: Light switch positions -steering wheel

I've done the yardstick trick Tom mentioned, works well.

And yes that little tool the Model A suppliers sell is great, cuts the job immensely and not as prone to lose your clip!

Re: Hershey theft

Thanks. People have told me I was stupid to do what I did, but my first instinct was to turn it back in. Never knew just how much cash there was but it was a big bundle:)

And when I get to that...

Re: Oil level

I recall Brent Terry commenting on the Rear Main Janitor and he said that it was a band aid fix, and that a properly restored engine would never need one.

I have to agree with that.

Re: elelmentary question: how do you best drain the gas tank

Re: Purchase Advise: 1930 Model A Tudor
