Bill, you bring back childhood memories. My Dad owned a Western Auto store in the late fifties. We didn't have A parts that late. Several years ago I bought an original Western Auto catalog dating 1929 thinking it would have lots of A parts. I guess the Model A was too new then. It had a few A parts but a lot of T parts.

PS: I did buy a set of Allstate 19 inch tires from Sears. As mentioned they were made by Garfield as well as seven other brands. Lasted forever.
