Re: Is it a bad time to sell?

I guess Iím having trouble understanding where a lot of you are coming from. If there is something on a car that I donít like I remove it. All the crap that you think I should remove came with the...

Re: tell a Model A related story

When I first started driving, my model Aís were not real weather-proof. You didnít want to hit a big pot-hole or youíd blow a tire, and if that pot-hole was full of water, you got wet. I got so used...

Re: tell a Model A related story

Hi there, I enjoyed your story. Iíve always thought that cropdusting would be a real hoot, and Iíve never talked with someone who did it as a profession.

Re: Is it a bad time to sell?

I guess I could pull up the front seat to expose the Robertson screws and take a picture, but is that even important? I really donít know if it is or not. After all the trouble I went through to get...

Re: Has this ever happened to you?

So many marriages are breaking up, and itís almost impossible fo me to imagine a man re-marrying someone who didnít approve of or at least respect his love of Aís.

Re: Is it a bad time to sell?

Re: Bad influence???

One thing I’ve learned about using the forum on the Ford Barn. I come across as being a lot smarter than I do when I speak. Hell, it takes a lot of time and effort to type out expletives, and yet...

Re: Engine running like crap

Oh the longish spring is there, but the preious owner had dual carbs on the car when I bought it. So, that control rod is longer than it should be for a single carb.
It was set up to go to the front...

Re: what category

Boy, do I wish that Shay made a tudor. They didn't, but I think they would have been popular.

Mike

P.S. I don't think Shay liked roll-up windows.

Re: Looking to buy a 31 - advice needed
