Re: How much better was the last Model A than the first?

I have 3 Townsedans: '29, '30 & '31 slant windshield, indented firewall; of the 3, I like the '31 the best. This not objective, just my feelings.

Re: Hello from Oregon!

NWRustJunk,
My advice:
1. Join a local club.
2. Join one of the national clubs (MAFCA or MARC).
