That beautiful curved line on the cowl sides of the 28-29 does it for me. I've had a couple including an RPU -- and indeed, it was tiny. I'd consider a 30-31 roadster next, because you can get down inside them.

28. I was lucky enough to get one when I was 34.

I lucked out because when I was 34 I got a Model-A. I always wanted one, because my Grandfather had one when he was the County Truant Officer. His was a 29 coupe. Mine is a 28 (March) Tudor. I bought it in 1994, and brought it home in pieces. I prefer the 28 -29, so I guess I lucked out. They are all great cars in my opinion. I sure would like to have one of the General Electric Specials, but they sure are hard to find.

My favorite is by far the Model-A that is driven. Ocassionally I'll pass one, sometimes when I'm in mine. If I go to a car show and there is a kid with their Dad I have been known to put em' in the front seat and take their hand and toot the horn. Best fun ever!

Remember, my favorite is by far the Model-A that is driven.

A 28 Tudor with black tires and no added extras like side spares, wind wings, trunk etc. Just a plain ole 28 basic Tudor.

Yep, "Model As", the continuing story of an iconic automotive design, the men who keep them running and the women who love them - the Model As that is.

I’ve had 4 different !929 body styles, one a Briggs body. The 28-29 Briggs body one piece cowl and flush fitting doors have a beauty that did not come back to Ford designs until the 1932 models. The more primitive A pillar and cowl of the other 28-29 styles have their own strong character. I love both designs.

'28-'29 are cute; that says it all.
