1962 or 63 brother and brother inlaw found my 1930 2 door sedan in a farm yard with a rod out the side of the block they gave the farmer 25 bucks for it.
They found a motor powering a cement mixer at another farm , the farmer told them they could have the motor but they had to take the mixer with it.
Spent a few summers when I was in high school on their farm and learned to drive with that A
They gave it to my Dad and he has had it till 2 years ago when he gave it to me the car has been in the family so's to speak around 52 years.

I bought my 28 ccpu on July of 1959 , for $20. My1929 Tudor about ten years ago. And my 1931 AA about 3 years ago = a long build! And many more over the years , start a project and someone offers something you can't refuse.

Bought mine in Dayton, Ohio from Gary Williams on July 29, 2005 with 54,936 on the odometer. It now has 63,098 miles and they were some of the best miles I have ever driven.

Bought 1928 Tudor at a farm auction on Mothers Day 2008. Paid way too much but she wanted it.
