Default How Many Model A Owners also Own a T?

I'm just curious to see how many Model A owners also have a T. (I'm thinking of getting one.)

While I do own 2 T's, but no A, I do work on the A's M-F. Oh, sometimes I refer to the 48 F2 in my profile picture as a 6 cylinder Model A caus' it is a flat head and has a 3 speed.

I own five Ts too. I own two or three As. I work on A's for a living so that I have money to play with Ts. Actually, my family just prefers national T events over A events. FWIW, it was announced last night at the MTFCA National meet banquet that the MTFCA National Meet for 2021 will be held in Wisconsin.

I own and enjoy both, but if I could just own one, it would be a "T". I also own some "non Fords" but my Ts are still the favorite.

There should be a "no but want to" option.

I bought a garage find T last fall. I am dying to get working on it. It needs a good bit. I just want to get the rest of my fleet fully operational before I start on something else!

Got my 26 Model T Touring about 14 years ago. Got my 1930 Model A Town Sedan last month. Hard to say which I like the best. Trying to iron out several issues with the A. The T is dialed in.
The T is kind of neat since you can leave the key in it because no one knows how to drive it. The A is nice since it's a major upgrade in driving ability from the T. Hard to believe that Henry held out so long on an out of date design.
I find that 60's cars are probably the best bet overall for drive-ability. My 66 Mercedes 230SL along with my MGB are the best overall drivers.
Currently working on a 49 Ford F1 pickup that has a 4 speed crash box trans. I think it might be harder to drive vs. a Model A.
When you take a look at the different era's of manufacturing, it is pretty amazing how much technology advanced through the decades. Much like aviation. Major advances when you consider how both wars influenced development.

when the A's get too fast for me I'll get a T. Find me a runabout in No. CA. Have room for it soon.

Yes, we own a 1927 Roadster. The first car I restored. I refer to it as my divorce car. If I want a divorce all I have to do is sell it, and my wife will divorce me. We have lots of good memories tided up in that car.

I have always had one T and one A, T for show and A for go. If I only had one car it would be my Model A.

That can be addictive.

I started out with 4 coils that I had since I was a teenager and learned to drive on a '26 coupe that I had bought. I now have a '25 touring and a LOT of parts. I intend to sell the whole lot, car and all, or give away what I can't sell because I need to downsize.
