Default Model A Day in Sharon photos

It was a good day today. Great turnout of 150 Model A's and everyone had fun. Lots of parts at the swap meet. First photo in the second tow is Marv Tomlinson, who has been selling Model A Parts for 50 years. The bottom two photos are Dennis Kleison of S. California who drove his 29 tudor to Sharon, WI. powered by a new Terry Burtz engine. Dennis reports no problems so far. Said he cruises at 60 MPH.
Thanks to all who attended to make it another great Model A Day in Sharon!

It certainly was a beautiful day for a ride into the countryside and ending up in Sharon, WI. Good crowd, good cars and good parts for sale, and of course, being in Wisconsin, good beer!

Dang I missed dennis,,, I was looking for a guy wearing a different hat

I DID enjoy seeing his Tudor, what a great Model A! The California tags were a dead giveaway, no mistaking the car! And that new motor, wow

I did notice that the attendance numbers were off a bit from the past,, usually the two blocks north of the Funeral Home are full and the street west of the town intersection was low on cars. I think some folks skipped Sharon and headed right over to Oshkosh they'll be back next year. But still plenty to see and a great time.

I was at Sharon yesterday. Had a good time, A bunch of nice cars and many parts.
I had a question for you experts.
I noticed that some of the some of the tudors and fordors had different tops. It seem some of them have the top material wrapped around the top all the way to the tops of the doors. Others stop at about where the top sheet metal radius starts. At first I thought it was a tudor/ fordor difference but I saw both styles on both models. Anyone know the reason?

Thatís who my son bought the rotor from. He was super busy so I didnít want to waste his time talking but felt like I could have sat there and emptied my bank account in short order. Took his flyer home.

Thanks for posting some pics. I'm kind of glad I didn't go. If my wife saw that yellow roadster, she would have told me to buy it on the spot.

It's important for a boy his age to come out of his "shell". I started taking my son to stock car races on Friday nights at Stafford Speedway in CT when he was about 10. I took a wrecker from the garage where I worked part time. We had access to the pits and infield and would get at least one wreck each night. He would wander the pits with a new white t-shirt and a Sharpie pen collecting autographs from the drivers. Great experience and not one driver "blew" him off. Now at 40 he travels all over from St Louis to go to races.

I love that I am up at the MARC National Meet and I keep seeing the new Sharon Model A hats being worn here…. Lots of people made it to both events!

I made the trip to Sharon on Friday and again on Sunday. Sharon Model A Day is definitely a must go to event. Too many Model A’s to count, lots of people wearing Model A clothes young and old and live music. Great food. Wonderful people in Sharon and enjoyed the scenery. It’s great to get out in the country and see corn fields and beautiful farm houses and old barns. I’ve met a lot of the people here on Ford barn, great people to be around. modela@aol.com and his wife caravanned to Oshkosh with me. There hasn’t been a dull moment since I’ve been here. I feel very fortunate to have been able to attend the events and meet so many great people. And it’s been quite an adventure driving my Model A with my new Terry Burtz engine with no problems from Southern California logging 2,700 miles.
