I ain't old,. Just had cataract surgery, the Doc never told me that one of the side effects of the surgery was more wrinkles, age spots and gray hair. I never had that much before the surgery...Duh! Chap

The worst part of getting old is all your buddies that don't get old with you. Damn it.

Sure wish I'd had more time with my Dad, a Ford dealer in the 30's-40;s and early 50's. Things like Korean war, Med Lab school + work all seemed more important. They were NOT. He Died at 60, I was 29, I am 86 now.

Seems like guy's down here are into hot rod's, rat rod's, camero's, mustangs and such. Would be nice to have some with flathead's to visit with (But I ain't moving north ) been a Texan all my life.

I'd have to get a boat to move anywhere, it's raining again. Wish it would go somewhere the farmer's need it. Al

Did he have to cross the Cape Cod Canal and buy it in Wareham from my grandfather at Sisson's Garage? Not sure there was a Ford dealer on the Cape itself???? Oh wait his widow might have sold it to the Suddards by then.

Two old guys sitting on a park bench outside their nursing home. One named Al says to the other Dave: Al says I don't now about you but I ache all over you are the same age as me Dave how do you feel? Dave said I feel like a newborn baby! Al says how can that be! Dave said well I have no hair or teeth and I think I just wet myself!

Answer To GB SISSON's remarks above.

On Sept 27, 1928 Dad bought a Fordor from Provincetown Motor Sales, a F ord dealer later known as Cape End Motors. Serial number A417892, Keys numbered 1036 and 1130. It had the drivers side cowl vent, a rather unique feature. He traded a 1926 Model T Sedan. The dealer went out of business many years ago and I bought their stock of parts at that time.

Thanks for the info. So interesting that you recorded all those numbers, or remembered them
