Re: Instead of advertising we pay yearly fee?

Over on the HAMB, we pay $50 a year for no ads. Not everyone over there pays. By the same token, if you register, you shouldn't see any ads. BTW, there are a number of vendors that extend...

Re: Tachometer for my model A

It's fun to watch the expression on an A owner's face when you run the tach to 3500 RPM on the chassis dyno. Too, ask your passenger to keep an eye on the oil pressure gauge while you're driving.

Re: Bill Williamson

There are three Model A sites. I find it interesting when you see the answers on each site when a person asks the same question three times. Kind of like doctor shopping to get the answer you want.

Re: U-haul open trailer

When I hit a campground, it takes about 5 minutes to take off the straps and push a button to tilt the trailer and off to dinner. No ramps makes it quick and easy.

Re: When is a "Model A" no longer a "Model A"

Then there is the "era correct" school of modifications. For instance, Ford dealers sold a down draft made by Stromberg-Bendix in 1931. There were a host of aftermarket heads, including OHV's...
