Default model a made it into the restaurant

I finished the cosmetic restoration and the car was put into the restaurant. The front door and side glass of the building was removed to get the roadster in. I am waiting for the rest of the upholstery kit to show up so I can finish installing the upholstery. I did the roadster to match our logo.

Hi, is this your restaurant? Is it in Astoria? If so may get down to visit sometime.

You did a good job getting it inside there, some other attempts didn't go quite as well.

And the car looks great I might add.

Your roadster fits perfectly with the name of the restaurant.

Another good reason to visit Astoria. Great city, lots of history and now another fine pub.
The best,

Default Re: model a made it into the restaurant

My wife and i are hoping to be open by mid February or early march. Some equipment came in damaged and we are waiting replacements. My wife and I pray about everything, we prayed for guidance when starting this venture. We went from buying a lot that was for sale for over 6 years because everyone thought it was contaminated which it wasn't to breaking ground and putting up the building. We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Every time we drive by our building we smile and say with God's help we really pulled this off. We will be dressed in old time clothes and the inside decorated in the 20's and 30's. When in Astoria stop on by and check out the car. We have hot dogs, Italian dogs, column fries, sodas, Italian sodas, gelato and serbetto. My wife and I met over model A's and have been married four years this last December. We moved from California and were part of the San Fernando valley model A club.we have been in Astoria for three years.

Add a clear plastic runner under the car to protect the floor from fluid leaks!

What are you saying! Model A's don't leak they just "mark their territory"!

The OP said that it has had only a cosmetic restoration - probably no fluids in it!

Looking really nice are you going to allow customers to eat and take a picture in the car. For most if not nearly all of them that will be the closest they will ever come to seeing a real model a under any circumstances . It probably will stimulate some extra buisness for you once the word gets out and the populace has to come see the car in the store. Good luck and it looks great keep up the good job.

Awesome! We will make the drive from Seaside for lunch this spring. Congratulations! By the way, are you two selling Grade "A" hotdogs?
